In a shocking turn of events, the quintessential Woot thing where you get three craps and a bag for a dollar per crap (plus five dollars shipping) has changed once again. Now, instead of paying $3 (plus five dollars shipping plus tax in most states), you will be paying $5 (plus five dollars shipping plus even more tax in most states).
Then again, it’s not like anyone was ever ordering one or two craps at $1 apiece, and Woot used to inveigh against that nonexistent practice before defaulting everyone to three craps for $3 (plus five dollars shipping).
Says the forum correspondent:
The salient bit for me is: “Which is all highfalutin preamble to saying that we’re raising the price of the Bag Of Crap by $2 and not improving the quality whatsoever.”
