what the heck happened to the back-up drive for about $60 that was the woot of the day about 30 minu
Welcome! Was it something that was offered yesterday during the woot-off? If it was here on deals then staff may have a removed it due to a problem.
A bit more about woot!
You might want to check out this page: http://www.woot.com/WhatIsWoot.aspx
Here's a little information from that page:
I see some orange flashing lights on the main page – what do they mean?
In Woot-Off mode, a new product is launched immediately after the sellout of the previous deal. There is a half-Woot-life of 12 hours maximum on any product within a Woot-Off that does not sell out. The number of Woot-Off items, sequence, and quantity will not be announced.
This applies to Woot-Off items as well:
I missed yesterday's item, can I still get one?
No. Each woot.com product is discontinued at 11:59pm central time. That's that. Period. We may get more at a later date if we're lucky, but we offer no guarantees, we allow no backorders, and we have no waiting/notification lists. Too bad.
I really appreciate your reply. The item was a slim external backup drive that was compatible with Macs, for about $60, and was not in a woot-off. It was the deal of the day at about 5AM CDT this morning 4/29. I had to log out for a bit, and when I logged back on, the deal was (is) a laptop. I did read lots of the FAQ before posting. There was no flashing orange button, or any other kind of warning.
Waaaahhhh! I want it to come back!read more collapse
