Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes To Shirt.Woot Pricing In March

by Sam Kemmis

[Updated 3/2 - See penitent explanation below] 

Hey, we're going to test something this month and see how it goes. In March we're charging $5 standard shipping for everything on Shirt.Woot. Here’s you flipping a table in response: 


BUT we will also be lowering the price of everything. Here’s you politely righting that table: 


If you shopped with us in February you know we were calling these “Bundle Sales” and they only applied to certain sales types. Basically, everything is a bundle sale in March. This may seem like underhanded hucksterism, but we’re actually pretty confident that it’s a good thing. Why? 

  • If you buy one of the daily shirts, the price is exactly the same ($7 + $5 = $12)
  • If you buy more than one shirt in an order you will save money (see table below)
  • If you add a shirt to your cart, you unlock “free” shipping on an item from another Woot site.
  • BUT The price of buying a single Woot Plus or Catalog shirt goes up by $1 (as it did in February)


Here is an explanatory table we clearly screenshotted from Excel:

We’ve been in this “Internet” business long enough to know that some people will be upset with a change of this magnitude, so let us know in the comments exactly why you don’t like it (or why you do). Like we said, this is a test that we hope works out for everybody (especially you), but if it really sucks we'll go back to the old ways. 

So here’s the deal: We have raised the price of the Catalog shirts by $1 in this test. Basically, we miscalculated our shipping efficiency and underestimated how many Catalog shirts we’d sell. We recognize that this might seem a little crappy, and we encourage you all to keep us honest in the comments.

by Sam Kemmis

Invent A Shirt.Woot Cocktail!

by Sam Kemmis

We're throwing a party over Labor Day weekend (details forthcoming -- promise) and we want to serve a cocktail inspired by one of our artists' designs. But all our master mixologists can think of is "The Binge" as a mixture of Bailey's and Blue Curaçao, and that sounds DISGUSTING. 

Do you have a great idea for a Shirt.Woot cocktail? It should include ingredients found at a normal bar. If it sounds better than "The Binge," we'll give it a taste test (on company time, of course) and serve the best one at the party. 

This job is so silly.
