I'm confused. Are these deals exclusive to wooters or are we just taken to their basic website?

@jerwin:
depends on the deal really.
Froobi is a DOD site so you get what you get there.
Most DOD sites will be that way. Same with 1saleaday.
The rest of todays deals were given to us.

You'll probably see a mix of both in this space.

@jsjohnson64: OK, so I'm not sure what the real value is here. WOOT is famous for deals on stuff that you can't touch elsewhere. If this site is just showing me stuff on vendor sites, how is it different?

@ jerwin:
The Deals.Woot staff (of which I am a part) will also be coordinating with retailers to get Woot-only Wootastic deals for the user base (of which you are a part).

@jerwin:

Well, we're going to do our best to find, finagle or flat out strongarm some great deals and bring them back here to you. :) Hopefully we'll be successful at least some of the time. You can help keep us on track with your feedback and suggestions.

I'd like to point out in the lower part of the site, that's where you (collectively) bring good deals to us. Who said this was to help our members out? :)

@jsjohnson64: OK, I think I get the idea, but since you are asking us for feedback, mine would be to make sure this doesn't just turn into a list of ads for stuff. There are a bizillion sites that grab misspelled URLs and take you to a list of ads for different stuff, this seems to be getting uncomfortably close to that idea. I think I see where it isn't that, but you might think about how to make the site less so, and more obvious that these are deals like WOOT has.

@jerwin: from what I am seeing, it just a link to their site. I like the free shipping, but the unknowns without clicking thru; backbutton pronto!

I bought this and I could not have been more disappointed. It was used and abused, dirty, scratched and battered. I mean, it seriously looked like it was used as a doorstop or something. It's probably going in the goodwill box when I do spring cleaning. I buy refurbs from woot all the time and I've never gotten anything like that. A scuff here and there, maybe, but I can't figure out how a cable modem could even get that battered. I won't be buying from dyscern again.
