In the beginning there was One day, One deal. Each deal that you took advantage of was one Woot! Back when they did two for tuesday I don't think anyone expected those to count as double woots.

Now that it is various deals of varying length, the concept of an individual "woot" is losing most of its meaning. Since the danger of missing out is greatly reduced, the feeling of accomplishment of getting the deal that would inspire the exclamation is also greatly reduced. Maybe woot should buy a new domain and setup shop at meh.com.

When I bought AA and AAA batteries a few months ago, they counted as separate woots. I ordered them one right after the other, but they were counted as separate transactions and separate woots.

Buying two of the same thing, though...not sure 'bout that. I'll have to defer to jsimsace. Two of a thing is one woot. Two separate transactions are two woots.

I believe that in another thread sometime back Jumbowoot declared that multiples of an item only count as 1 woot.

@okham: Glad you picked up on my sarcasm there. :)

I guess we shouldn't confuse woots with purchases. But first world problems can really grind sometimes. :)

the only way it would qualify as two woots was if you bought them from two separate accounts. (or maybe as two separate purchases.)

and if this is all that keeps you awake at night i would like to borrow your life for a while.....
