Shouldn't the Croc be listed as an endangered species by now after all these bi-weekly deals?

Goodbye Crocs! Back down to the doomed abyss of downvotes where you belong!

Just as I always vow: I'll NEVER lose my Croclove. You may commence downvoting.

I think I check dealswoot less knowing I might run into another free shipping Crocs post.

I love my Crocs, too, but free shipping on overpriced molded foam shoes is not a deal. Don't most all decent shoe websites offer free shipping, some even on returns?

it always seems like the last sponsored items gets only downvotes

@charitwo: I think that the Croc company might be run by masochists. The downvotes only give them pleasure.

@charitwo: They sort in order of votes. The lowest will always be at the bottom :)

@therealjrn: You know it is funny that for the longest time I thought "Hey, they just downvote the last one." Until I noticed the sorting. DOH!

I have to say that Crocs don't really deserve the hate they get these days, sure their original shoe is HIDEOUS but they actually have quite a few shoes now that look pretty decent. That however does not make up for the face that this deal is atrocious. Free shipping is commonplace with most sites, in fact Amazon has Crocs cheaper than their website and with free/prime shipping.

Is this a Croc?

Or is this a Croc?

Oh, I know! THIS is a Croc!

See, they're not ALWAYS like this:

I think people seem to be missing the point. Crocs wouldn't keep advertising if there weren't a lot of clickthroughs and sales from their ads. No matter how negatively they get marked. Same goes for Travel Zoo and a bunch of others.

Just an interesting thing... You don't keep doing the same advertising Schtick if it doesn't work.

@xavoc: Not necessarily so. They could have bought a certain number of sponsorships all at once and are just burning them off. Conventional ads on TV, radio, newspapers and so on are usually bought more than one at a time too, so just because you see the same ad more than once doesn't mean they're raking in money. I'd like to think Wooters are smart enough not to fall for this stuff (and TravelZoo, overpriced jewelry, etc) and the downvotes and general disgust would seem to support that.

The original cayman crocs aren't the prettiest shoes out there, but you can't beat draining, easily-rinsed shoes for rocky New England beaches and light farm work.

@danlab825: I totally agree. This gets my downvote because it's NOT A DEAL. Free Shipping is so commonplace that it doesn't register on my deal radar.
For the record, I don't think "deals" should be judged on the aesthetic value of a certain product. This is a DEAL site., If the item posted is a good deal, relative to other similar products available online then it's worthy. If it's nothing special, this "free shipping" Croc deal beind a prime example, then it gets my down vote. Just because a product isn't something I might find useful or valuable doesn't mean that it might not be a bargain to those who do.

TIL woot doesn't listen to its users

vote-for2vote-against

@starblind: Actually, necessarily so...

Another person here who posts these paid/sponsored deals regularly has commented that even with massive downvotes, it's still worth it to pay for the ad because of their jump in business.

Crocs is adding the following offer to today's deal:
Buy any "New Arrival" and get 25% off any other shoe with code LOYAL8254.

And looks like its only free shipping on orders over $75.

That was a waste.

vote-for1vote-against

I love my big fat ugly Crocs!

vote-for4vote-against

@woothatesme: The default is free shipping over $75. With the coupon provided, it is free shipping with no minimum.

My two kids wore crocs and would fall pretty frequently. Tossed the crocs and no more falling - just a small scientific experiment.

WAY over-priced Chinese plastic.
