As a kid, we used to put glow sticks in the freezer to keep them glowing a few extra days (after they were snapped to turn "on"). I wonder if freezing would preserve life before snapping? We host a big 4th of July BBQ each year and I am buying ahead for that...

In for three times the totally epicness. It would be very cool if these arrived before Halloween, but I hedged my bet and have a stash in hand of the ones from a week or so ago. My house is SO gonna be the cool house this year!

What is the lifespan of these stick by hours?
I know milspec grade chemlights can be anywhere from 8-12 hours for regular strength, 30 min. for high intensity.

Great idea! My son will be celebrating new years eve in "'stan" land where alchohol is forbidden. These will be perfect with alcohol-free champagne for a "dry-buzz". Yes, there really is such a thing. In for 10 and plenty of time to ship.

So, when you hand them out, do you give them the whole package or do you give it to them opened and already glowing? I'm worried some kid may open it and take a bite thinking it's candy!

I brought two sets because I don't get many trick or treaters but now that I've unlocked free shipping, I feel compelled to buy something else or more light sticks since this woot seems lacking. How many lights sticks do I really need?

Unless the kid is a werewolf, they won't be able to chew through the plastic. Even if they did, the contents are non-toxic (though they do taste pretty nasty from what I've read).

187 doesn't divide into 24 evenly.

Well, I will give them out to trick or treaters from the last couple sales, (already here, GREAT shipping speed, Woot!!), throw a few in with all kid's birthday packages, keep 2 or 3 in EVERY drawer in the house for power outages, put a handful in each vehicle, throw them in the hot tub occasionally, and use a ton of them for camping, hunting and fishing - I mean A TON. SO - I bought 72 two weeks ago, 72 more a week ago, 240 under my account tonight, and 240 more under another account - so I'm up to, what ....624 of them now???
Yup!
I'll go through the first 144 of them handing them out on Halloween alone!!!

Ok, your suggestion make sense. Two sets for Halloween one for van and camping and one for assorted gifts. 4,sets for a total of what? It's past my bedtime. . .see the morning crew later.

The glowsticks were a huge hit for Halloween. I hope Woot offers them again next year.

Thanks Woot for coming through with flying colors...how do you do it? Shipping was lightning fast and these arrived a DAY BEFORE Halloween and all 10 cases were given out to screaming monstrous kids who could be heard shouting from blocks around, 'THEY HAVE GLOW STICKS!!!!!!!!!!!'

The other cases of glow sticks from two weeks prior were passed out in da club and were major awesome sauce fun.

You rock, Woot!
