Woot Plus: Chromebooks $43+ and Coffee Gear (30 options)

Woot Plus is where the longer-running and leftover deals reside at Woot! And running right now is the third incarnation of The Chromebook Sale featuring a mix of refurbished and new condition with prices ranging from $43 (yes, forty three) to $270. A total of ten options are available, and most of the major brands are participating. Sale ends 10/28/23 or earlier if sold out.

Keep in mind some of these models are too old to be receiving OS and security updates from The Google. Check the listings and the Google Auto Update policy page for specific models.

If you have existing Chromebooks, check for those too because Google had/has been adding years to the expiration dates. Plus, they appear to be sending updates to some of the Chromebooks that are already beyond the expiration date.

What goes with Chromebooks? Why, what else, COFFEE! Woot Plus is running a Coffee Gear sale running until 10/31/23 or earlier if sold out (one has soldout already), featuring 30 different options! The sale features diverse coffee preparation methods, from Ninja DualBrew to automatic brewers, cold-brew makers, italian-style stovetop, french press [if you haven’t tried the James Hoffmann don’t press the filter technique, be sure to try it out), vintage-style espresso machines (with adorable flip switches), burr grinders, frothers, Nespresso type, water kettles, and various accessories!
