Shame on Woot! for price gouging

The numerous items going up today (3/17) that I am seeing gouged beyond belief is sickening.

After the world wide shaming given to those hoarding and reselling, after amazon/ebay took down listings of people who were gouging, here is Woot!, taking advantage of the situation and gouging on items during an outbreak.

Pathetic.

I would really like someone from Woot to answer about this. That 4-pack of toilet paper was ridiculously high. What’s going on, Woot?

If memory serves me to the woot price is based on the amazon price, and that price is based on their crazy pricing stats that fluctuate hour to hour.

It’s all pretty shady.

I’m not sure what’s worse…

Having a super high price <> good

Not knowing what is being sold on your site <> good

The camera & door lock one still has me confused.
If it doesn’t come with a camera why say there’s a camera in the box? Woot staff failed that one. I’d mention him by name but I can’t because I’m disappointed in him.

Ah. Woot is passing out refunds like Oprah passes out blenders.

Hey everyone, we really appreciate you bringing this to our attention and we have remedied it by adjusting all our prices and refunding customers. Without going into too much detail, an automated system we use to set up deals broke today on a few items. We aren’t making excuses, just letting you know that it was not intentional. We would never attempt to take advantage of the current situation, and to anyone who did purchase incorrectly priced items, we’ve been sending out emails and issuing refunds. We sincerely apologize and, again, thank you all for bringing this to our attention. We love our Woot community, especially in moments such as this.

I’m so heart broken and upset I’m gonna need a case of toilet paper sent to my address to make me feel better.

What about the “hand sanitizer” that had 2 different listings for the same thing at different prices?
