If you’ve been itching to get your hands on a low-cost media player there may not be another chance like this this. Woot is currently selling refurbished 30GB Zune’s for a whopping $100 (+ $5 for shipping)! That’s just crazy!
What’s really interesting is the URL that is used to access the deal. You’ll notice that it doesn’t take you to the typical Woot homepage which currently has a different deal going on right now. If you look closely in the sidebar there is a disclaimer:
You know Woot as the site that sells one product per day, cheap. But this isn’t exactly Woot. This is a special super-secret page we set up to get our family and friends off our backs about these things (hi mom!); we’re tired of entering manual orders. Your order here will be processed and shipped like any other order with Woot.
You’re here because you seem like the kind of discriminating, savvy consumer who can be flattered into dropping some cash with us. If you’re tempted to sneak a few of your lowlife pals in the back door, remember: that’s a really nice computer you have there. It’d be a shame if anything happened to it. (Ok, no, we won’t be breaking your computer. And yes, you can sneak your lowlife pals in, but make sure they follow the dress code.)
Yeah, so it appears that this page wasn’t supposed to be made available to the public, but dozens of sites have already written about it. Frankly, we didn’t want any of you to miss out on such a good deal. ;)
And yes, this low price is probably in light of the 2nd generation Zune’s getting announced, but it’s expected that the old Zune’s will also be getting a software facelift. If you’re looking for a media player this has gotta be a deal that’s hard to pass up! Maybe you can start stocking up for the holidays.
Thanks for the tip Mark!
