What is Electronics.Woot?
A discussion of hunting grounds, bailiwicks, and life preservers
We're gonna go out on a limb here and say that this whole electronics thing might not be just
a fad. Tech gizmos just keep on growing and shrinking and multiplying and mutating and amazing
us and sometimes disappointing us a little. The great thing about that is there are always new
gadgets coming out – and always formerly-new ones available for a steal. Electronics.Woot is
the short pier for your long walk into this ever-rising torrent of circuitry. We promise not
to throw you a life preserver.

Frequently Asked Questions

- Why have a separate site just for electronics? I thought Woot was all about electronics.
No doubt, tech will always be our first love. We've got circuitry in our DNA. Liquid silicon
pumps through our veins. Some say we are more machine than man – can we ever truly feel love,
pain, joy? But over the years since our founding as a gadget outlet, Woot's hunting grounds
have expanded to take in deals from a wider range of product categories. We thought it was
about time to put the tech deals we love back on their own pedestal. Like, a really cool
cyber-pedestal that looks like a cross between R2-D2 and a Wurlitzer jukebox.
- So what's the difference between the deals here and the deals on the main Woot page, or Computers.Woot?
Simply put: Woot features the best deals from across every category we carry, including
electronics. Computers.Woot is all about PCs, laptops, and the like. If you got hooked on
Woot back when we were mainly a discount-electronics pusher, Electronics.Woot will rekindle
those memories and reawaken that addiction. Please do not use Electronics.Woot while
operating heavy machinery.
- None of that makes any sense to me. What is Woot?
Why didn't you say something earlier? OK, so Woot is a group of ecommerce sites that launched
in 2004 and has since expanded to specialize in various other product types. You can get to
those sites through the links at the top of this page. They all feature great new deals
every day within each site's particular bailiwick. (Yes, we did say that just so we could use
the word "bailiwick".)
- What if I have a question about purchasing, ordering, shipping, returns, etc.?
First, start with the
main Woot FAQ. There you will find either the answer you seek, or instructions about
what to do if you don't find the answer you seek. Happy seeking.
- What?!? You consider today's product a tech item? It doesn't even have (a power cord/buttons/a screen/etc.)!
When you're in the business of providing great tech deals 365 days a year, sometimes you
have to interpret "tech" a little more broadly than the typical gadget freak
might. Be not rigid like the fluorescent tube, but supple like the glowstick, and you
shall not shatter in the wind and get toxic glowy crap all over the place.
