Deals.Woot RIP: November 24, 2009 – July 31, 2016

Gossip Girl. L.A. Law. Breaking Bad. All good things that eventually came to an end. Now Deals.Woot
joins them in the place beyond the mists. Because at midnight on July 31, after 2,442 days of glory,
Deals.Woot will close its virtual doors.
We’d like to thank all of our community members, deal posters, sponsored companies, and anyone
else we may have forgotten. We've made this hard decision so we can focus on other areas of the
site, ones that are growing in popularity and require more resources than ever before. Or, to be
poetic, to grow a lovely tree one must prune branches to protect the trunk.
Consider this thread yours, to talk about the good times you had in deals, all the magical in-jokes
you shared, and all the memories that we made over the past seven years. Just please remember:
PG-13. We don’t want those lingerie debates starting all over again.

We are postponing the close to noon on Monday, 8/1.
...Now they're saying noon PST.

Of the platform, this remains one of my favorite UIs. I was sad to see it underutilized and
I'm sad to see it go. But I think it's the right decision.

Figured I'd stop in to say goodbye, too. There's definitely some sadness in seeing
deals.woot go, but it's understandable (and in some ways preferable to it languishing).

Wow, just now seeing this or I would have posted sooner. I consider this site one of my
digital babies. Even though I helped lead the team through a few woot.com redesigns this

You're very welcome. I always enjoy seeing a comment from you appear letting me know all seems
to be well! We both may have more or less disappeared from our little corner but I always enjoyed
the time we spent, both the goofy and serious moments. I hope all continues to be well and you
continue to scare off invaders to your garden for decades to come!
I will let you have a blankie this time! I hope it keeps you safe and warm on those cold nights!

My parents installed a whole hour intercom. Remember those? And my mom, who didn't work then,

f00l

played Disney soundtracks, The Four Freshmen, Sinatra, Nat King Cole, The Sons of the Pioneers,
and most esp musical soundtracks all day long thru the house. It was just something I heard all the
time.
So my brother and I knew early all the lyrics to Theusic Man, Flower Drum Song, and most
especially The Sound of Music, and My Fair Lady.
Once in a while when the family gets together, my brothers and I annoy everyone by singing all the
songs in order.
