I wish more of these shirts had the design on the back. No one likes a price increase but $2 more for an American made shirt seems reasonable after 4 years.

Ha! I would be safe from harm at the hands of this li'l ninjette while wearing this shirt. See my avatar?

I am starting to think Woot buys reject/factory second shirts from AA anyways, that should keep the costs down. It would account for the oddball problems I have had lately (improper dying, weird cut-down-the-side at a bad angle issues) and the fact that one size Small may be a totally different size than another Small (even shirts of the same color). In the end though, if I like the shirt I dont care about 2 bucks.

Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.

I totally get the cost of business for the $2 but how about a $2 break on kid's sizes. At $12 for a kid shirt you are losing me. $12 at target gets me at least 2 shirts 3 or more if I catch a good clearance day. I am not complaining about the adult size I can justify it on the fact they might get worn for 10+ years but, My daughter is two and a half she will out grow any shirt in 9 months. Kids woot shirts at $10 were asking a bit much. I noticed your already raised the kiss random shirts from $3. 33 + $5 s& h ( 3 for $15) to the adult price $6. 66 (3 for $20). Thanks for hearing my gripe

I was just thinking kind of the same thing. I mean, I hate to Katie Kaboom, but $10 for my son's tiny shirt was hard to justify but I did it because I am the coolest mom on the block. $12 is tougher to justify, so I definitely see myself being more shrewd with my kid-shirt purchases.

Well, Here is the link explaining about the price increase...again.

I suspect this link providing will be needed for a week or so.



Well I suppose you can still think of the shirt as $10 and shipping is now long free. That way woot could say they change their prices.
Oh well. Had to happen sometime. Wood have rather have seen a 10% jump of $1 rather then a 20% increase. That's just a little steep. Gonna have to think a little harder before buying a shirt.

I just noticed the $12 price. When did this happen? Not saying the shirts aren't worth it, but disappointed just the same.

Paid the $12 for my first Woot! shirt of 2012.

I love this one. The price increase is OK for me as I need to slow down on the T-shirt buying anyway. I mean, how the heck many of these things does one person need?

Oh - and more back designs please. Too cool. I'll never get bored with it 'cause I don't have to look down at it all day.

Agreed. $10 was a nice clean price where I didn't feel guilty indulging in a shirt. $12 is different.

So if Amazon bought Woot, does that mean we can pay for purchases with Amazon gift cards??

^ This.

My wife has asked me not to buy her or my kids any more woot shirts because of this (dying and sizing issues.) Now with a $2 increase, that is an easier request to follow. I'll be honest I don't mind paying $12 for a decent shirt design, but that is what I'd pay at many stores around me and now quirky shirts are everywhere. Some are mass printed, some are created by designers trying to make a buck, but at $12 and no promise of quality of the acutal shirt the designs are printed on being better, I'll be buying quite a few less from woot.

Similarly the arguement about kids shirt prices is valid.

Still considering getting it for my 8 year old black belt, but not sure.

Let's see the quality impulse buys!

Put me in this category. I don't really wear t-shirts with pictures on them. The wife can't wear Woot tees because she has big breasts. For an adult shirt that was quality $12 is not bad... BUT...

I only buy woot tees for the kids. $10 was always a bit of stretch considering we normally pay $3 to $5 for the kids... still to get them something well made, unique, funny, and domestic-produce, I made the exception and paid the 200-300% price.

$12 tips beyond that.

For $10 I would have got this for my son, he loves ninjas. $12 makes me think he has too many shirts already.

I just want woot to know that my NOT purchasing this shirt has absolutely nothing to do with the price increase, but rather that I'm allergic to green.

Or at least I look very allergic to it when I wear green. Not flattering.

Very, very, cute though. And I certainly hope to see more printing on the back in the future!




ME TOO!!!! I was so trying to figure out who in my family could wear this shirt, but we are all "allergic" to this shade of green.

I must go off in a corner and be very sad now since I LOVE this shirt *sniff sniff* :,(

I love this shirt, and bought two of them (1 adult, 1 kid). I agree with others that the $2 increase doesn't bother me so much on adult tees, but for kid tees it's a bit extreme.
I didn't expect Woot to be able to continue selling $10 tees with FREE shipping forever, unless they started using shirts imported from China to keep costs low. I would much prefer to pay $2 more to keep shirts that are made in the USA. Plus, on top of the free shipping, I've never had a problem with Woot customer service on the rare occasion that I had a problem with my order. You can get cheaper t-shirts elsewhere, but you'll be hard-pressed to find those three elements in one site(Quality shirts, FREE shipping AND good customer service).

But come on Woot, do something about the pricing on kid's tees. My son has approximately 35 Woot shirts in his closet, many of which are being outgrown as of late...and will therefore need replacing. It would be great if you could lower the price to match the smaller sizes.

$2 may seem like a small increase, but it may have just killed my woot shirt addiction without a much needed intervention. I made a dent in my pile of laundry yesterday and counted 31 clean woot shirts. Those are just the clean shirts. I also own 2 woot hoodies.

Thank you for the increase. I can now afford cat food for my four-legged children.

Much as we wish we could, we can't run our little t-shirt wonderland on cupid feathers and unicorn smiles. As of today, Shirt.Woot's first-day price for t-shirts will increase to $12.

With a couple extra bucks to pump into the Shirt.Woot Wonder Machine of Fabulousness, we'll hit ever-higher heights of t-shirt glory. We've resisted any price increases for over four years now, and we think twelve dollars plus free shipping is still a pretty rad price for high-quality, exclusive graphic tees.

The sad fact is, nothing in our business - blank shirts, ink, labor, shipping - is getting any cheaper. A happier fact is that Shirt.Woot has a full roster of cool projects in the works for 2012, which we just couldn't do on the incredible shrinking margins of our old price.

Thanks for sticking with us lo, these many years. And thanks in advance for paying a little more so that we can stick around for many years to come. Excelsior or something!

The reckoning shirts are normally $15 unless they're part of the woot.off lunch break special deal.

I do hope to see this design either on a hoodie or LS shirt sometime in the future. NICE!

Would you like to buy a tic-tac off me for $2?
No? It's only $2! Sure you can buy a whole box of tic tacs for 50cent- ahhh... yes that's the reason.


$2 is 20%. For an adult shirt it is still a good price though for what you get. For a kids shirt it is adding 20% on to something that was already pricey.

When you're a family of 5 on one income- $2 isn't a lot of money, obviously, but if I paid $2 more on every purchase we made we'd be in debt.

Can't buy shirts as cool as woot's anywhere else- but when for kids you are used to paying $3 to $5- $12 is too much to justify. I could occasionally justify the $10 for something that was really appropriate for the kids (like this would have been)- but $12 I can't.
