Woot is an American Internet retailer based in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton, Texas. It was founded by electronics wholesaler Matt Rutledge and debuted on July 12, 2004. Woot’s main website generally offers only one discounted product each day, often a piece of computer hardware or an electronic gadget. Other Woot sites offer one original t-shirt per day, five selections of wine per week, one children’s item per day, four deals sponsored by other websites, and one closeout deal per day in cooperation with Yahoo! Shopping. On June 30, 2010, Woot announced an agreement to be acquired by Amazon.com.
Woot pioneered the one-deal-a-day business model which has been implemented by many web-based retailers since. Customers may buy up to three of the day’s item, although occasionally the site has limited product quantity to one per customer. Woot does not reveal sales figures unless the item sells out. Items are shipped only to the United States using FedEx Ground, FedEx SmartPost, or United Parcel Service.
