Who cares. Cheap glow sticks are AWESOME. They're great for Halloween. They're great for camping. They're great for temporary night lights. Yes, I bought 10 cases. BOOYAH.

I think the other ones were the electric ones and only 4 per pack.

24 for 4 bucks--that has to be a good deal--if I am reading correctly

We bought these last year and gave them out to trick-or-treaters... at $.17 each, it was by far cheaper than candy, and we were definitly the favorite house on the street!

They're $1 per 2 pack at the dollar store, so yeah, a very good deal.

Last time I bought them they were $1.99 for 24... but you still had to pay 5 bucks shipping on every order back then so it kind of cancels it out.

I bought 3 sets last year to give out for Halloween, gave a couple to this one little girl and she went to her stroller got the one that was on her stroller and gave it to me, I guess she wanted to trade.

Deja vu. Yes, same item at the same price yesterday. They also sold the battery powered flashsticks earlier today.

These are awesome.

Lets be honest here..... they are awesome for when you are on drugs. And these are the cheapest and best glowsticks I have ever found.

I usually take these to concerts and pass them out and get a lot of free stuff in return.

Let me guess, you picked out yet another colorful box with a crank that I'm expected to turn and turn until OOP! big shock, a jack pops out and you laugh and the kids laugh and the dog laughs and I die a little inside.

I wonder if they are going to be here by Halloween? I'm about 15 miles north from Woot warehouse but sometimes Smart post sometimes take 4-5 business days to deliver my package.

I was in for 3 when they had them this past spring. Yup, got a screaming deal on 72 chem lights. The kids love them, but somehow we still have tons.

Just like yesterday two-day shipping is $8 per set. For three sets that's $24.

They will ship in the same box. It's not going to cost three times as much to ship three.

Oh, well.

Same--it was a hit last year at Halloween, but I doubt they would ship in time this year.

They were 4.99 on oct. 10 woot. so I guess this is a sale !

I got 3 yesterday and 5 more today (didn't see the option to buy more than 3). Anyone think these might last for a year before use?

forever fighting the urge to buy something just because it is cheap and cool...wait, it's cheap and cool, let me click that big yellow button!

They were $2.99 on 10/6/2011. However, to be fair, that was when Woot! charged $5 shipping on each item. This time I paid less because the shipping was free.

I'm still using some I bought last October. There's definitely some degradation...the blue ones especially aren't as bright and don't last nearly as long as they did when new.

I just bought these from Woot and immediately took them to the clubs to pass out to partiers on the dance floor. Major fun! They all glowed brightly; the cord necklace is literally a snap to put together. One quick 'crack' and then shake, shake, shake and the glow stick is good to go. Lasted all night till the bars closed at 3am.

I just purchased 10 more sets for Halloween club debauchery.

GET YOUR GLOW ON!

I ordered 3 sets, hopefully if they ship them tomorrow they can be delivered by Tuesday/Wednesday next week, too bad they don't allow local pick up.

Ordered 3 packs yesterday, and they would have been delivered today if UPS hadn't left them off the truck this morning. In for another 7 boxes today with fingers crossed that they are another speedy delivery and will be ready for trick-or-treat.

There is a clear cap (called the hanger) that snaps taut on the glow sticks. This part is very important. Make sure you really, really push the glow stick firmly ALL THE WAY in the plastic hanger piece. Then you're good to go with threading the simple lanyard through the eye hole of the plastic hanger. The lanyard screw snaps. After you 'crack' the glow stick, shake vigorously to get the glowiest glow going. Throughout the night, give it a few more vigorous shakes to mix. This keeps the color of the glow stick uniformly glowing.

Woot has been delivering all my merchandise at dizzying speeds lately. Literally one or two days tops. MAJOR AWESOME SAUCE, WOOT!

This is also good for those people that sell glow items at the beach on New Year's or Independence Day. Good way to make double your money.

Thanks for the info! I've got a 5 yr old birthday party next oct and I'm sure these will be a hit. If I get them now, they will be sold every woot off between now and then. If I don't - never again

Either way all these glow sticks will be awesome fun for the kids.

I'm up here in WA state and ordered some Oct. 10... They got here on the 16th. If Woot ships at the same speed, the ones I ordered today should get here before Halloween and I live almost as far away from HQ as you can get. Hopefully everyone will get theirs before Halloween!

I was just thinking these would be great to give out for Halloween. In for 10! Here's hoping they arrive on time.
