I Miss the Old Woot

I Miss the Old Woot

I was discussing the old Woot with some people, and then they complained that that wasn’t what they wanted.

I mean, seriously! They want the old Woot so badly, that Woot goes out of their way to design a shirt expressing this feeling (but mostly for the money), and then they suddenly DON’T want the old Woot.

no sales stats? oh man…

I agree, I miss the old Woot. It offered better products, prices and humor. I used to order more often also. When Amazon took over the company it became a dumping ground for customer returned, so-called “reconditioned” merchandise.

Amazon made no difference in us selling customer returned, so-called “reconditioned” merchandise. That’s what we built the Woot business on.

How about this: https://old.woot.com/

I agree! Woot NEVER used to sell reconditioned and refurbished goods before Amazon. This product in 2008 actually fell through a wormhole in spacetime from 2012 back to 2008 to be listed on Woot:

Remember when Woot Offs were fun?

Since my orders aren’t being delivered by a monkey flying a drone I’m pretty sure this is the old Woot.

Is it still customary to say that every woot-off is “the worst woot-off ever”?

Fucking hate wootoffs, when’s the next one?

Well, yeah. I mean, you know, it’s tradition.

That’s why there’s always uncle wooty’s tanker truck of balsamic vinegar, off-brand magic erasers, @daveinwarshington 's lightly haunted Roomba, expensive stuff no one can afford, and all those squirting toilet seats.

If you actually work at Woot, which I strongly doubt, then you must be a recent hire because you have no clue how Woot used to be before Amazon took over.

  • TT does.
  • If by recent, you mean compared to decades.
  • TT has been a customer since the days of old.woot.com.

Anything else?
