Have you WOOTED today? Yes I am Wooter and I am proud of it. I have only been Wooting for a short period of time and can say that I am addicted. I can see myself going to the WA(Woot Anonymous) meetings – Hi I’m Tim and I am a “Wooter”. Do I have your attention?

Have you “Wooted” today?

 

Have you WOOTED today?  Yes I am Wooter and I am proud of it.  I have only been Wooting for a short period of time and can say that I am addicted.  I can see myself going to the WA(Woot Anonymous) meetings – Hi I’m Tim and I am a “Wooter”.   Do I have your attention?  It’s a web site called WOOT.com.  For me it’s like Christmas every morning?  When I get to my computer each day I do two things, start Outlook to get my emails and go to WOOT.com.  It features one special item each day.  It’s like Christmas for me every morning because some days the surprise is great and others it’s like getting an ugly tie from your Aunt who is sitting across from me while I am opening the present.  Typically I will thank my Aunt for the great tie while searching through the tissue paper looking for the receipt.  The sites tag line is, “One Day – One Deal”.  A co-worker turned me onto this site and I have been addicted to it ever since.  Today as I was putting this together, for instance, they featured a “iRobot Roomba 418 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner Bundle” for $149 plus $5 shipping.  I Googled the product and found the iRobot Roomba ranged in price from $199 to $499.  Recently I purchased (two) 2 Gig SD memory cards for $14 which includes shipping. 

 

Here are some other items that I have seen featured in the last couple of days:

 

Cobra NAV ONE 5000 Portable GPS with 5” Touchscreen, Text to Speech and Bluetooth - $199
JVC MiniDV Camcorder with 34x Optical Zoom and Dual Recording
SanDisk Sansa Express 1GB MP3 Player - $9.99
Linksys Wireless-N MIMO Notebool Adapter
Westinghouse 46” LCD HDTV -$799

 

The organization that puts this site together is irreverent and I love it.  Just read parts of their general rules and I have included a link: http://www.woot.com/WhatIsWoot.aspx

 

Finding websites that grab my interest and keeps me coming back is rare.  This site has grabbed my attention and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  I also know there are more sites like this throughout the internet, so if you know other sites send us the links.  Tell us why you like the site and how you use it so we can share with the rest of the readers.
