Here's a hint: Good deals on all sorts of items.

Nostradamus maybe? I doubt anyone but Woot staffers know.

I'm hoping that it will be something I want to spend my $40 from JW. Here's some fun predictions for the next four days (27th, 28th, 29th, and 30th), though.

Wine woot will have at least one non-wine deal, possibly food.
Home woot will have a roomba or other robotic vacuum.
Kids woot will have either a painting set, or crayolas.
Sellout woot will have a computer, refurbished.
Shirt woot will have shirts that will STILL not match the popularity of Nevermore.
Moofi will make at least one more appearance as a #sponsored deal.

I'll check back on the 31st to see how I did. Please note: These are only educated guesses. I have absolutely no knowledge of what anyone is planning. None. Nada. Zilch. Zero. I'll bet I come close, though.

@shrdlu: And what fate does that poor roomba have with your coupon? A life of dissection and re-engineering? Don't do it w00t. :)

@mfladd: No, no. I don't want a Roomba. I've already had a few, actually.

One of them is still in the area (but doesn't live with me, anymore). The guy I gave it to has done all sorts of funny things with it. iRobot is one smart company, since they go out of their way to encourage mods. I always wonder how many they've sold to the geek world where the purchaser had no intentions of ever using it to vacuum.

Rodney Brooks has been cool in my book for years. Here's a nice PDF for anyone who wants to play.

@shrdlu: "No, no. I don't want a Roomba. I've already had a few, actually."

(GULP) Can I ask what happened to the other roombas?

@mfladd: Obvious, isn't it? DISASSEMBLE

It's a good time, you know?

@shrdlu: Nice list and here's a couple other predictions:

A Dyson, Amplified Speakers, Digital Camera, Headphones or earbuds, Universal Remote Control, Gaming Mouse or wireless keyboard, iPhone/iPod accessories (doesn't include the iPhone or iPod).

@shrdlu: Let me know if you find something to spend the $40 on...well, you don't have to, but it'd be appreciated heh

(I need to spend my coupon too...contemplating the Mr. Beer but I ordered one last year when it was cold though and it exploded.)

Hey, on the OFF chance one of you staff folk roll through here (that happen to pay attention to any of the weird nonsense I post)...

Is there any thing in the future that my $40 would be better spent on than Mr. Beers?

vote-for4vote-against

@drchops: Here's my philosophy on this one. It isn't really money. It isn't burning a hole in my pocket. The gift (for me) was in receiving it in the first place. Do I honestly need random things? Not really. Unless I see something that I actually want, I'll just pick up whatever seems most likely on the 30th (the last day we can use these), and give it to charity. If I see nothing else, there's always Shirt dot woot.

I did honestly consider the iMac, because it was such a good price, but I just do not NEED another computer, especially not one that can't be hooked into my current setup (which requires that it easily connect to my KVMs).

I'm still hopeful that @brutherford will surprise me with something fun on Moofi, or that Home dot woot will have something I actually want.

Yeah, I'll try to remember to poke you if I find something (but not until I've bought mine, just in case the quantity's limited ;-}).

@drchops: I just don't know you well enough to know if what's coming up would be more to your tastes, sorry!

vote-for5vote-against

@drchops: I honestly don't know what will be up, and it's RARE many people here do. But I bought in today because it's $25 for 2 gallons of beer, and at worst- I get to watch beer happen! Just like that episode of Futurama where Bender nurses his beer belly- there will be pride. And at the very best, the beer will taste at least good enough to drink. I say, worth it (but use your whole coupon).

vote-for2vote-against

I'd recommend time travel. That is a sure way to know what will be featured in the future!

vote-for3vote-against

@drchops: Depends on how much you like beer!

vote-for2vote-against

@inkycatz: heh yeah, it's hard buying gifts for people you know, so I guess predicting what somebody you don't really know would want buy for themselves might be a little tough lol

@agingdragqueen: haha I still have pretty much all the plastic stuff from the kit that exploded, I think it probably just needs refills - so my thought was just this = refills. [...]I started typing this a few hours ago and got distracted, so my decision of whether to wait or not has gotten a lot easier since then heh

vote-for2vote-against

@slydon: Oh, I LIKE beer.

@shrdlu: the 30th? I've been trying to figure that out.. The 'cupe says the 31st? Does that mean that it'll be good ON the 31st?

[ed] And just for future reference, for the purposes of this coupon...my "taste" is stuff not much over the $50 mark :)
If it's awesome, I could live with ~$100ish heh.. I'm actually tempted to get a couple of these heating blankets, I just don't need any more. They are a pretty good deal though..

And thanks for the responses from everybody.. I'm gonna have to keep my peepers peeled for obscure.woot's to post deals (mostly Moofi I guess, Sellout's on always on the sponsored page..)

vote-for1vote-against

@drchops: There've been other threads about this, but there's so much activity, that it's easy to miss it. Yes, the coupon that says it expires on December 31st is DOA on that day. Your last day to use it is December 30th (hence my looking only at 27th, 28th, 29th, and 30th). So far, I'm zero for zero on the choices, with two days to go.

The blankets are a good deal. So are the kitchen utensils (on Home dot woot). I just don't need them. There's still two more days to look forward to.

vote-for1vote-against

Three down, three to go.

Deals for the 29th took care of Wine and Moofi. I cheated on Shirt dot woot. I suspect that it's a given, considering Nevermore's popularity.

{Wine woot will have at least one non-wine deal, possibly food.}
