July 12 at 6:45am CT | Holy Stone HS200 FPV RC Drone | Prices start at $1   (Super-limited quantities)

WTF (Woot's Totally Fun-tastic) Pricing is a way for us to give you a chance at a ridiculous price on a specific deal without losing our shirts. Here's how it works:

Date: Thursday, July 12
Where: It's happening on this page (Deal will appear "Sold Out" until WTF Pricing starts)
Times: Here's the schedule (times may vary a minute or two):

6:45am CT: The deal launches at $1. There are just a few at this price. If you missed it, stay on that page for the next offer.

6:55am CT: The deal launches at $15. Once again, there are just a few at this price.

7:05am CT: The deal launches at $30.98. Missed it again? Keep trying.

7:15am CT: The deal launches at $46.99.

7:25am CT: The deal launches at $56.99.

7:35am CT: The deal launches at its final price of $69.99.

 
HINTS, TIPS, and EXPECTATIONS
 
• WTF Pricing is for this one offer only.
 
When the offer is live, click on it to try and buy it. A lot of other people will be clicking on it too.
 
• If you miss an offer, keep trying. Refresh the WTF page (F5 key on a PC) until the sale goes live again.
 
There are only a few quantities at each price point. Not just one, but not dozens. A FEW. Each level will sell out really quickly. Most likely you're not going to get one for $1. BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.
 
When you click on the offer, you might be ushered into Woot's Vestibule of Patience, the queue of customers who are trying to order. From there, you'll either be taken to the checkout page, or our servers will hiccup and kick you out to Woot's main page.
 
• You may get a message that your order has been denied or canceled. This just means that we ran out of inventory at that price before we could complete your order. Most likely this is going to happen, so just be ready for the disappointment.
 
And hey, if you ARE lucky enough to get the deal at one of the crazy-low prices, post about it in the thread below, or on social media, so other Wooters don't think this is some bait and switch deal. We can say it's not, but the internet never believes anyone. Help a Woot out, OK?
 
THANKS FOR READING AND GOOD LUCK TO ALL LITTLE WOOTERS

What do you care? You'll be getting this for $1, and then again for $15.

I also see that TT closed the trick which people used to get to the $1 very quickly.

It starts at 4:45am Pacific?! Are you nuts? I'm pretty sure anything starting before 9am is illegal. I don't think time even exists before 6am. Therefore, this is both impossible and illegal. It's like you're trying to divide by zero and you just can't do that, Woot! Even on your birthday!

Stop complaining. Just think of all on the east coast who have had to stay up until 1 AM since Woot came into existence. And then will miss this 7:45 AM thingy because they are in the shower getting ready for work!

Well, to be fair, he does work for Woot so he's probably already resigned to his fate.

Woke up 15 minutes ago by mistake.

Will try for the second tier, and then when I fail to get one, will go back to sleep for another hour+.

So why is it the VoP never refreshes away when an item actually does sell out. It's like never ending hope of disappointment. lol

Whoo, did the site just go bye-bye for everyone for a minute or two or was I just special? I'd honestly be disappointed if the server didn't go down at least once today, so I'm glad we got it out of the way early.

Wow. I got all the way through payment and when I check back to look at receipt it says cancelled. That is some bs right there. How does that happen?

It means they sold out just as your order was being processed. The blog post about this sale addresses it.

I haven't been to sleep yet, though I did try. This is a problem.

From above:
You may get a message that your order has been denied or canceled. This just means that we ran out of inventory at that price before we could complete your order. Most likely this is going to happen, so just be ready for the disappointment.

I had an alarm set on my work cell, immediately clicked the banner in the Woot app on my personal phone, and it went to a page where TT had “Oooo, it’s almost time“.

I backed out quick to click the banner again and it said the same thing, and this was about 4 seconds in.

Did it again, and it showed the item. 8 seconds in at most. Clicked that, and it was sold out.

App fail.

Was in the Vestibule of Patience for 10 minutes. Just as I was trying to open another tab to try for the 6:55 am line the VOP went to sign in - of course didn't get the item and lost any chance of getting in on the next level.

Why does it take so long time at the page of The Vestibule Of Patience? It is ridiculous.

I seemed to doze off while waiting in the $1 section of the Vestibule of Patience. It hasn't changed, I'm still in there.
I'm pretty sure I won't get anything, except 5 mins of sleep before my Clocky wakes me up.
