Woot is an online store that offers products at deep discounts to its customers. Also known as Woot.com, this company picks one new item every day on which to have a deal and it is sold until it is gone or until it is 11:59pm central time. At midnight central time, it is changed with a new product.
Each product sold that day is currently in stock and usually ships in 2-3 business days. If a product is sells out during the day, no product is released until the normal time of 12am central time.
Beside the picture of the product is a button that will say “I want one!” or “Sold out!”. If the button says “I want one!”, potential buyers can click on the button to buy their item at a savings. If buyers do not have an account, it will prompt them to start one. From there, they can follow the easy prompts for ordering and buying the products.
Occasionally, a Woot-Off will occur. A Woot-Off is when a new product is launched immediately after the former product is sold out, not waiting until midnight as would normally occur. When a Woot-Off is happening, visitors to the site will see orange flashing lights on the main page. This can happen once or twice a month. They usually last from 12 to 72 hours.
