Everybody celebrates the day they were born, which strikes us as arbitrary. It’s not like you had a choice in the matter. Why not celebrate the day you chose to be reborn as a full-fledged wooter – your “Woot birthday”?

We’ll help. Wooters over 21 will henceforth be eligible for a coupon code worth $4.98 off shipping on your Woot winery-direct order. It can only be used once, and only during the month you originally signed up for your Woot account. Don’t know when that is? Look under your name at the left of your forum comments. See where it says “Joined”? That’s it, that date right there.

There’s a little more to say about it than we should go into here, so look for an email from us at the beginning of your Woot Birthday month (unless you’ve unchecked your newsletter notification box under the “your account” tab up there, in which case you won’t be hearing from us). All the relevant details will be there, we hope.

We know, $4.98 isn’t a whole lot. But we’ve got a lot of people to get gifts for, you know?

Coupon is available to all interested aged 21 years or older. If you have not signed up for woot.com and wish to have this coupon please email bdaycoupon@woot.com.

This is seriously cool. Go WD

But I gotta ask... why "4.98" and not a nice round $5? Like, free shipping, or something. If you're a winter wooter anyway...

Just my (ahem) $0.02

Edit: OH HEY It's my birthday month! where's that email...

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

And I of course have to wait almost an entire year before I get to use mine because they didn't implement this in time.

Hahahahaha...it was all just fine tuning of your idea to begin with. But I want full credit for the decanter thing if you go with that one.

And, as an aside, when you smirked at my guess that I'd been buying from w.w for about a year and a half, it appears the correct answer was a year and 8 months - rounding error for some of us.

look for an email from us at the beginning of your Woot Birthday month (unless you’ve unchecked your newsletter notification box under the “your account” tab up there, in which case you won’t be hearing from us).



Even if you do have it checked doesn't mean you'll ever see a news letter.
