Daily deal sites have become more than a bit of a thing lately. Woot! is probably the best-known of them, selling just one item per day until their supplies run out or the day is over. I particularly like the one-off T-shirt sites, if only for the variety of designs that go through their RSS feeds.
Boardgamegeek visitors are probably already familiar with Tanga, which often has board games and other geeky products at pretty good clear-out prices. Now Ed Healy has opened up Loot, a daily deal storefront focusing exclusively on games, and maybe an emphasis on role-playing games, which I appreciate. In the last week or two, Loot has offered a Dying Earth three pack and a bundle of Dungeon Crawl Classics from Goodman Games, among other things.
Being a frugal gamer, I’m always on the look-out for a deal. Daily deal sites usually have some random stuff, but it never hurts to drop their feed in your reader of choice. It takes a second to skim past. Some day, you’ll see something there you’ll find useful.
April 7th, 2011 Update: Proprietor Ed Healy has set up a coupon code for readers of Held Action. From now until April 30th, plug AAB211 into the coupon code field when buying something from Loot to take 10% off the price.
That code is good for any and all purchases from now until April 30th, so make hay while the sun shines.
