Woot Acquired by Amazon - $149 Kindle (new) today!

Announced yesterday, Woot has been acquired by Amazon.

I kid you not.


"...we got acquired by Amazon, so no more rolling in late with our pajamas on..."

Today, Woot is selling a brand new, non-refurbed, fully-warranted Kindle for $149 plus $5 s/h.

That's $40 off Amazon's price. Well, $35 figuring in shipping.

Thanks, I read they were acquired and was actually going to pick up a kindle, 35 bucks savings sweetened the deal.

The letter by the Woot CEO to the employees is hilarious.

That video is awesome too. Makes me wish I worked for a company with such a great sense of humor.
