These Woot! deals are starting to feel more and more like smoke and mirrors. Almost the exact same cast iron (albeit white instead of navy) is available on Amazon for $79.99.

With my free Prime shipping, I get it by tomorrow at no cost. So, in the end, Woot is still saving me $10. However, Woot lists the retail on this pan at $250, while sister site Amazon, has retail listed as $150. :-\ Something smells fishy...

It does seem like the deals aren't as great as they used to be !
I bought the 7 qt cast Iron in blue for $15 less than the grey one here !
That extra $5 dollars in shipping can bring the price on many items close to my prime acct cost, so the deals here don't seem so much like.....a Big Deal !
