I have not heard of Woot until today, but they have a Refurbished Garmin StreetPilot 7200 for $249.99. If I understand this correctly, they have one item a day and they have it until it sells out that day.
Yep. Woot has been around for a while. They sell ONE item a day until the day is over or until the item sells out. Occasionally they have a "woot off" and will sell various items for short periods. They put up a limited number of them (number not disclosed while the item is for sale) and sell it until that item is gone and then sell something else. This will go on for an entire day. Once in a while, during a woot off, they will sell a Random Bag of Crap. The server will usually crash at that time because soooooooo many people are trying to get one.
One feature of woot.com is that they ALWAYS charge ONLY $5.00 shipping. Even if you are purchasing a 60" television. It's always $5.00. If you are buying multiple items (3 bags of crap is the max you can get in an order) the shipping is still $5.00 for the entire order.
There are also ancillary pages: wine.woot.com and shirt.woot.com
If you aren't (or have never been) a gamer you likely haven't heard the word w00t! before. It's sort of like "wahoo!", "yippee!", "YES!!!!", etc. In 1337 (leet) its normally spelled as above - lower case w and t with two zeros in between. Now you know.
I never had problems with Garmin refurbished units (C550, C580, Nuvi 750)
I've bought a few items from Woot without a problem. They're one of the higher rated 1 day sale places on resellerratings.com
That being said I've also ordered items without a problem other than slow shipping from 1saleaday.com and Yugster.com which rate pretty low.
