My very first Woot item…

Written By: Gary on January 6, 2006 One Comment

Mskeyboardmouse-1I was lying here (not sleeping) and I saw on the clock it was almost one o’clock in the morning (Eastern) which means there’s a Woot item for sale. Woot puts one item for sale clearance a day at this time every day. Whenever I’ve checked it’s either sold out (usually in the first 10-30 minutes) or something I don’t want. But tonight…

I ended up with a Microsoft wireless keyboard and optical mouse for 22.95 (+$5 s & h). And it’s Mac compatible!


Check it out. It’s a different item every day sometimes a $10 item, sometimes and $2000 plasma TV. You never know (although it’s always $5 for shipping) for sure what you’ll see (some times it’s refurbished, which is okay with me).

They even have fun stats like how many people bought how many and how long they’ve been woot-ing….

And they do a podcast too.

UPDATE: They sold out after five hours and fifty eight minutes. They sold one every 7.703 seconds. That was a total of 2796 keyboards/mice…

    Thanks for sharing the link. I had no idea this site was even out here!! Naturally I’ve been wanting one of these wireless packages and the deal would have been so sweeeettt. Lucky you :)

    Of course there would be a catch with the time being 1:00am. My clock is already set for 2:00am to get up for work!! This site just might have to wait when I’m having one of those nights where I just can’t sleep…which is rare :)
