Woot! Shenanigans: A Primer

We get a lot of questions about what we mean by the Shenanigans part of our “Deals & Shenanigans” slogan. So here’s a quick breakdown of the kind of weird stuff we do:

Woot-Off: Every month or so, our Clearance page flips into Woot-Off mode for 12-14 hours. Brand new deals pop up every 30 minutes or less, and the quantities are low, so they don’t last long. It’s also a really good chance to snag a…

Bags o’ Crap: BOCs, as we call 'em, are random collections of stuff that we shove into a box and sell for $10. They’ve been a Woot! staple since we launched in 2004. Wanna know what’s in them? Visit www.woot.com/postmyboc to see what the (un)lucky recipients have gotten recently.

Deal-O-Meter: We offer up a product at a typically good price, but we give you the chance to vote to make it even lower. Happens on our special Deal-O-Meter page every other Monday, unless we go wild and run a bunch in a row for things like Mischief Week.

WTF Pricing: WTF is short for Woot!'s Totally Fun Pricing, where we list a product with limited quantity for $1 and then raise the price every 10 minutes, until we reach a “final” price and/or it sells out. We run these a few times a year when we wanna make people go crazy.

Woot! Locker: We take a huge empty box, price it at $50,000, and film ourselves adding random things to it on our Twitch channel. The price of the locker goes down throughout the stream until we get to a price that someone wants to actually pay for it. And yes, people DO buy them.

Woot! Funhouse: We build a page that looks like this, with a bunch of different doors. Every 10 minutes for 2 hours, each door points to a different thing: a super-limited-quantity deal, a coupon, and other random stuff. We only run them a couple times per year, so BE READY!

Digital Crap: Every day on the Woot! app, play a game to unlock the chance to buy a super-cheap product, shirt, maybe even a Bag o’ Crap! The games are easy to play (well, most of the time) and even if you don’t beat the game, you can get a sweet consolation prize.

Jeez, that’s a lot of stuff. How are you ever gonna know when all these things happen?

I’ve been applying it to my cat’s boobs every day. She has several, you know.

I gather you’re covered in blood and scratches from removing them?


Wait, you mean I should have been removing them, too?

Also, you can make an offer on a deal by posting in the forum how much you want to pay and woot may or may not lower the selling price!


Feel free to edit your post to steal this embeddment of your gif and then delete my psot.


THANK YOU! Here is fine.

what is the F5 finger? Shortcut to buy?

Nope. Not even slightly close.

Try putting it on their head between their ears. Low ceiling express!
