Default There's a Woot-Off Going On Right Now

The title says it all. Another day, another Woot-off. Nothing I want so far, but I'm still hoping to one day snag a bandolier of carrots.

yah, normally it's one deal per day, and when it sells out, that's it until next day at midnight. A woot-off is something they do once in awhile where once one thing sells out, another pops up in its place until the decide to call the woot-off off.

Ah, a fellow wooter. (And a fellow Evan, to boot.)

I've never snagged a BOC yet, but maybe today will be my day...

Thanks Evan.

Serendipity at it’s best. I’ve been looking for a good pair of high quality headphones to replace mine at work.
