The Secret of El Arenque Rojo, Chapter 11: ¡Frijoles!

by Sam Kemmis

Did you buy the Woot 2012 Calendar? If you did, you probably noticed that there's a QR code on every page. Scan the QR code at the beginning of each month for the latest chapter in The Secret of El Arenque Rojo. To recap, in Chapter 1, video store owner Roy Odom found a box of mysterious VHS tapes. In Chapter 2, he started to notice some odd coincidences and symbols in the movies on the tapes. He sought the help of an unusual film professor in Chapter 3; discovered that the implications were bigger than he'd ever imagined in Chapter 4; and had a disquieting dream before being betrayed by a confederate in Chapter 5. The turncoat had a change of heart in Chapter 6... but learned in Chapter 7 that even considering betrayal has its price. Chapter 8 introduced us to a shady new character determined to destroy all evidence. Chapter 9 saw a massive betrayal, leading to to an unlikely joining of forces in Chapter 10. Now, Roy and Drake cruise to the border, with the fate of humanity in the balance...

Wooters at Home: Don

by wootbot

Be warned, Woot community: We're turning our camera on you! Over the last few months, we've occasionally barged in on Woot users in their private domiciles to find out what their deal is. What an endearing bunch of weirdos you are!

Starting now, we'll be running a new one of these "Wooters at Home" videos every few weeks right here on -- appropriately enough -- Home.Woot. Tune in and get to know a few of the faces behind the usernames! And who knows? Maybe someday soon we'll drag our podcast rig through your town, and you could find yourself featured as a Wooter at Home!

Recapping The Home.Woot Better Late Than Never Welcoming Party

by Scott Lydon

As you know from posts on our main blog, we're not always a high-stress, low-benefit place of employment. Every so often, we like to rally the troops and have a little fun. Last week, with the Woot-Offs out of the way, we finally had a chance to say a long-overdue hello to our most recent site. Our little home.woot party lasted for a few hours at lunch, and there were games and prizes and plenty of smiles.




And also some aprons and hats. You know, just because. Come on inside and we'll show you more of what we did. The Dyson race alone is worth the click.

The Secret of El Arenque Rojo, Chapter 2: Magic Numbers

by Jason Toon

If you bought our Woot 2012 Calendar, you may have noticed that each month sports a different QR code. And if you've scanned that code, you've gotten a message telling you to wait until the first of the given month to read a new installment in The Secret of El Arenque Rojo. And then you probably wondered what we were talking about. Chapter 1 appeared in January on the Woot blog. Read on for this month's installment, Chapter 2...

It would never do for a man in Don Fausto’s position to wear glasses. He’d wrenched a fortune out of the dust of Durango by the force of his will, the keenness of his wits, the strength of his sinews. How would it look if the savviest caballero on the Mexican frontier admitted that his faculties were beginning to fail him? His enemies would strike without mercy. Everything would be lost. He may as well castrate himself...

Our Home.Woot Es Su Home.Woot

by Jason Toon

Nice place you've got there! Or so we assume! But even the nicest place could be a little nicer, especially if the price tag coordinates harmoniously with your budget.

So today, welcome to Home.Woot, the newest and homiest Woot site. Seven days a week, Home.Woot will feature new deals for everything from bedsheets to cookie sheets, from the most respected brands, at prices that make non-wooters wonder what the catch is. Lucky for you you're smarter than that.

Today, we're sharing the launch-day spotlight with the Metrokane Rabbit Supreme Crystal Wine Glass 4-Pack. These double-fired, pulled-stem glasses are available today for the first time anywhere, and brought to you by the people who make the stylish, almost magically effective Rabbit bottle openers. It's just a sip of the major-brand, minor-price deals you can expect every day from Home.Woot.

So, unless you've got any further questions, wipe your feet on the mat, don't mind the dog (she's a little territorial with strangers but a real sweetheart once she gets to know you), and make yourself at home at Home!
