|woot.com, the online geek store phenomenon that sells one item each day, turned 5 last Sunday.
This is one of the more fun way to get deals on the InterTubes. [almost] every day, at 12:00CST, they put up a new item for sale, and sell that one item until they run out, or 12:00CST the next day. There’s a lively discussion forum to discuss the products among the other wooters. Another great thing about woot is they write very funny descriptions of the products.
Every now and again, there’s a woot-off, where they sell a bunch of things in rapid succession, and deprive geeks worldwide of much-needed sleep and focus at work.
I’ve bought several things there, and have always been happy with them. Just be aware that their cheap shipping is VERY slow.

This is the first one, but there’s seven or so more. Some are not as good as others, but I enjoyed this first one the most
