But is it the first sell out at 6000? Also, Apparently the price hike didn't affect much, haha.

First 6k/$12 sellout. The Dark Knight and Run Away! Run Away! were 6k/$10 sellouts.

EVERYTHING is priced according to what the market will bear. Woot believes that this will not overly impact their sales so they bump up the price. They do have to make a profit and if they can't make a profit at $10 and if nobody is buying at $12 the accountants will tell them to get out of the shirt business not drop the price.

Secondly, while $2 is not a whole lot of money. If you were fiscally responsible, then you would have to pull that additional $2 from some other entity or buy less Woot Shirts. So, if I bought an average of 15 Woot Shirts a month the increase is $360 a year, which could be a car payment or a winter heating bill. However, if I buy 3 less Woot Shirts per month to account for the increase in cost, I will save $360 per year.



If you budget yourself to that level of precision, more power to you.

BTW - this shirt sold out so what does that tell you about the price increase's effect on demand?

Ah you are correct! I think this proves that if people want something, they will pay for it. And I think everyone will pay for ninjas. OR NINJAS WILL MAKE THEM PAY!

So glad I nabbed this one earlier. I had a feeling it would be a sellout.

Congrats Robbie!

Thanks so much for the sizing advice and the link to the other thread, everyone. I had looked at the sizing guide and was still confused, and had looked for a discussion thread on the topic but hadn't found one.

Oh, and lanceswarts, I'm very happily married, with children.

It tells me that the shirt was good. Again, if the shirt warrants the cost increase fine, but more often than not this doesn't happen.

It tells me that people will pay for a Woot shirt that's printed in a different fashion, particularly if it's a decent one.

If you bought this shirt, would you be kind enough to post a confirmation on the colour? (Picture would be awesome if it's not too much trouble.)

It looks more a forest/british racing green on my computer(s), but says kelly green. Just curious as to which it (actually) is.

Thanks!

I'd go by the description before a picture. The Woot! offered kelly green looks like the carpet on a mini-golf course.

move along

how many products have you seen that had a price increase and kept 100% of their customer base.

people are STILL loosing jobs. salaries are still being cut. there are hardly any increases in salary. but product increases like all over the place. some of us have to make a decision sometimes and say maybe a t shirt is not THAT serious and/or necessary. deciding maybe woot is no longer feasible for our pockets and voicing it. and looking for something else that strikes our fancy. even though i'm poor, i'd also like to indulge in some things. lol

I must confess... I didn't really like the shirt, but I just noticed the design is on THE BACK. Now I really like it.

I got this shirt for my kid (8). He wore it to school yesterday. Everyone liked it. So much so that he did not want to take it off at the end of the day. Awesome

Gaaa! The shirt just arrived yesterday for my wife, and the SIZE HAS CHANGED! She's been a regular Woot Shirter for over a year now and has always been happy with a Large, but all of a sudden this Large shirt is much tinier. Doesn't fit at all.

Not quite as soft either.

What's the deal, Shirt.Woot? Especially sad given the price increase.

Please email service@woot.com with your issue. Please include your order number and, ideally, links to some photos of the shirt in question being compared, size-wise, to your other woot shirts of the same size (maybe a shirt-over-shirt overlay or something? I dunno, I'm just suggesting photos because evidence is always helpful to making a case, right?).

Whoa o.0 Awesome shirts for 12 bucks still seems like a steal to me, though there is certainly some part of my brain that likes the nice friendly "10" better...but heck, I feel like I'm somehow spending less when I pay 70 rather than 68..which is just kind of sad, really.

Most places I see with designs not quite half as awesome as Woot ones usually sell from 16 to 25 (I'm looking at you, certain pseudo-gothy now kind of bright and happy and cashing in on the Twilight craze store). And those shirts are never as good quality as the ones I get here.

But...I do understand those that can't afford the increase. Unfortunately, Woot still has to support itself and meet its various expenses and continue to make sure the artists benefit as well.

Half the time, I end up arriving too late and paying the 15 in the derby anyway. If the design is great enough, I don't mind. I would no sooner pay 10 bucks for a shirt I only kind of like than I would pay 12 or 15, anyway. ...and still no shipping cost? Woot is still awesome to me.

Awesome News: Woot! customer service is awesome and they took very good care of me and I heart them very much. I am wearing my sneaky ninja shirt now

Not-Awesome News: The WXL is pretty tiny too. I'm sitting here tugging it down. Still smaller than all my previous WLs. Not only is this bad for my ego, but I don't think I can order more Woot! shirts....just can't bring myself to select W2XL (if there is such a thing).

As a WXL myself, I find the MM to be pretty flattering without the tuggy issue. Seriously, give it a shot.

I'm just hanging out, really.

Ordered my wife and I one, and my brother ordered some for his wife, boys, and himself. It's a little disappointing that the airbrushed wrinkles where the ninja is holding onto the shirt are so light, but if you look closely you can see them. All in all, an awsome design and really fun to wear. Everyone has loved it.

When I first got it, the design seemed to stick to my back, which was really distracting. After a couple hours, though, I either didn't notice anymore or it got broken in or something.
Just a heads-up. Still a great shirt.

Still have not received the shirt, so I called WOOT and they refunded my $5 Overnight Fee. They need to offer better clarification on Overnight times.
