questionsfive dollar shipping all day?


i foresee a cancelling of combined shipping during woot-offs lol. with some of my woot off buying sprees, i can't see how they're making over margin with free shipping after my first 5.00


@baronz: Good point! Time to start running up the credit card!!


@inkycatz: No need. (I think) I did this same exact thing. I bought something from woot and sellout each using a coupon and combined shipping made it a fantastic deal.


@pinchecat: How about "Did you know about $5 shipping all day?"


@thedogma: I pinged our customer service folks about the coupons. I don't know yet either.


@thedogma: Reading helps! Just looked at the "learn more" under $5 shipping and that's basically how it works. Still don't know about the coupons. Anyone try multiple codes yet today?


Now I want a $5 footlong.


I was wondering about that. I guess if you buy something, you get charged the $5, and then when you buy a second item, there's no charge. Is that along the right idea?

If so, coupons could be really good. Free shipping and $5 off each additional item until you run out of codes.


wouldn't the opposite be true?

If you purchase a lot of SMALL ticket items, then you only pay the $5 shipping and make better resale.


Wow! Didn't put two and two together on that till I read your question. If you purchased a lot of big-ticket items, like you suggested, you might even be able to capitalize on some resale money, since you'd essentially be cutting your overhead costs in half.
