Deal of the Day Websites
Deal of the Day
By Sharon Housley
With the economy in a questionable state,
everyone is looking for a good deal. Savvy business
owners have jumped at the opportunity to carve out a
niche for themselves in the struggling economy. Coupon
and Deal-Of-The-Day websites have become extremely popular.
Everyone is getting into the action, from large conglomerate
websites to small specialty shops, and many now have
some sort of Deal-Of-The-Day special where an item is
offered at a significant discount for a specified and
limited period of time. While the Deal-Of-The-Day websites
were originally designed to capture impulse purchasers,
many financially-conscious penny-pinching shoppers are
now monitoring these sites regularly, in search of good
deals on products they might need.
Everybody loves a bargain! Where should
you look for a bargain?
Software Deal Of The Day WebSites...
Software Deal Of The Day
Software-DOD.com features popular software
titles, with a new discounted application available
each day. The software discounts range from 10-90% off
of list prices, and the featured software is only available
at the discounted price for twenty-four hours. Software-DOD.com
also includes "second chance" offers, which are offers
designed for people who missed the primary Deal Of The
Day offer. The second chance offers are still discounted
below the normal price, but not as deeply discounted
as the primary Deal Of The Day offer was.

featured product is not a trial version, and not a limited

software, and free for the website visitors.

Electronics Deal Of The Day Websites...
Woot.com is an online store and community
that focuses on selling cool stuff cheap. It started

of its own, offering a variety of items, typically electronics
and techie toys, at discount prices for a single day.

Yugster is a website that sells cool stuff
at prices that typically cannot be beat. An item is
Yours Until Gone (YUG)! Everyday they offer a new product
at 6am EST, and when it is gone, it is gone. They also
offer an additional unique option -- if you register
and become a "Yugster" (free), you get their daily offers
a day before everyone else. Just log into the Yugster
website as a registered Yugster, and you'll not only
see that day's Daily Offer, but you'll also have access
to a special "Sneak Preview" offer for the offer scheduled
for the next day. Registered Yugsters can also receive
emails containing a heads-up on items available, and
access to additional and special "private" offers that
aren't included on the website.

CST. When an item goes live the AtomicDeals falling-price
auction begins, and the price starts to fall. The price
will continue to fall until time runs out or until the
item sells out.
