That's just terrific.

On a completely unrelated note, have I mentioned how much I'd love a Canon 70-200 f/2.8 L IS USM Lens? I haven't? Well, golly, I'd just love to find a good deal on one.

This is what makes me keep coming back to the site...great story. On a side note, Anyone know where I can get a great deal on a Range Rover...would go great with this new hanging dice I bought. ;)

@badgeholder: Isn't it usually the other way around?

Thanks fgarriel for all your help during the beta. This was a request from the deals.woot ops team (jsjohnson and crew) and certainly an easy thing to agree with immediately.

I hope that we can carve out time for things like this regularly - it's so easy to be moving too fast that you miss whats important. (wait a second.. dslr camera? range rover? .. run away!)

Thats the kind of stuff that sets Woot apart!!! You can't tell me of another company that would do something like that... If you can let me know and I will go let them know what I want right away!

Give sgoman the banhammer for a day! :D

@snapster: I also appreciate that feedback was taken seriously. I've been on the development/QA side of too many beta tests that completely ignored customer feedback. More often than not, a beta test is a way to get some shoddy product out the door without proper testing.

For those not in software development, denying and delaying features is still taking feedback seriously. Things like architecture, time-to-market, development costs, marketing, and UI design all have interests in the process. What ultimately makes it to the end user is a negotiation of those considerations. What's important is that the feedback is heard and acknowledged with a reasonable explanation; but as a beta tester, you can't always be privy to those reasons. Woot staff did a good job sharing what they could and assuring testers that their voices & opinions were heard.

Wow, that's awesome! Another reason why Woot is one of the best companies out there!

@fgarriel: I also felt that the woot staff cared about the issues I brought up (sometimes asked about earlier by someone else), with decorum.

I also had a lot of fun with the other users out there discussing things and even helping out the green boxers and all of the new wooters to this site.

awesome Woot!
That's the great kind of people that are at Woot!

That is just fantastic.

Anyone know a great deal on a tech job at a online retail company around Dallas, Texas?

(unemployed)

vote-for4vote-against

So I got an email about the special badges, is the special badge going to be a shadow image of a racing wheel stand?

vote-for1vote-against

Only woot is this cool.

Speaking of that woot. I could use a good deal on a HDMI 1080p monitor....just kidding.

That's awesome - woot rules!

Way to go WOOT!!

Have I mentioned lately I am shopping for a Cadilac Escalade?

between the great customer service & customer experience, and touching stories like these - it really is what sets woot apart from other retailers. Notice i didn't even bring up the deals - that's lower on my list of priorities than the integrity of a company, and its SO refreshing to see a business re-capture the human aspect of things... though the deals do tend to be very good!

Thanks, as always, woot!

vote-for4vote-against

Woooooot, Wooooot! Classy gesture, good customer service - gets remembered.

vote-for1vote-against

Wow.. That is Awesome.

P.S. I have been looking to find a place with a deal on a Bugatti Veyron. Just park it out front please..

vote-for3vote-against

I read your first comment...I thought that was awesome.....

vote-for1vote-against

Wow, congrats & happy holidays to you & Woot!

vote-for1vote-against

Congrats to you. Happy Thanksgiving.

...so anyone know where I could get a good deal on a 50" flat screen tv? ^_^

vote-for5vote-against

@fgarriel: Was it shipped SmartPost?

@everyone saying "know where I can find" some ridiculous thing: it was funny the first time. Since then: not so much.

vote-for2vote-against

I dont want anything, but have tons of thanks to give this year for all the value woot has brought to us! It seems like fate- every time we are looking for a thoughtful gift for someone, Woot comes through for us.

I am glad they are able to come through for others, as well.

Woot rocks!

Great story, and way to go woot!

If you are lucky enough to get a phone number for Woot, you should probably call it

vote-for4vote-against

@markzero: I've called over there plenty of times. Phone calls are overrated.

vote-for1vote-against

Very cool. Only thing I would like from Woot is the secret on how to score a Random Crap. Only gotten two in three years. Help a Wooter out!

vote-for1vote-against

I just found this post at random...and opened it without realizing lol...

I think it's sickening how Woot! has mask their true agenda with flowery gifts and genuine appreciation. Where's you're integrity Woot!? Let me guess, you lost it in a Woot-off...

Heh, seriously though, that's awesome. I gotta say, Woot! is one of the few good companies that still exist...can't say enough good stuff about something like this, but I will say this...I'm pretty sure you'll never see 1SaleADay.com do this :). Good people Woot, Good People.

And It just goes to show you that even giant, soulless, corporations can [pretend to] have a heart [for good press] :) heh...

Stay Golden PonyWoot, Stay Golden.

Well damn. I didn't even look at the actual Wheel Stand...

I just did...they're purdy. Those are some A-1 wheelstands my friend...You got some good taste @fgarriel ..

I know this is a dead topic, but I've grown accustomed to talking to myself :)
