Woot.com and 1saleaday.com are only a few examples of daily deals sites that can be quite fun for internet users of any age. These two web sites were shown to me by a friend about a year ago, and have since become part of my daily regimen of sites to check.
Every day around midnight, these sites start a new deal of the day. These can be anything, and can be sold at any price. I’ve run into cute little doodads that you only need to pay shipping for, up to good quality plasma screen TV’s that cost much less than any store in my area.
I’ll tell you a secret, too: they save me quite a lot of worries when it comes to Christmas shopping for friends who have everything! Being August, most of the world is starting to consider Christmas gifts for everybody ranging from significant others to the guy in the next cubicle, and these sites will have something for everyone!
For a college roommate who was really into Star Wars, I found a collector’s edition book with behind the scenes tidbits and little known facts from the movie. It was a cute, perfect gift for under $30, shipping included. He absolutely loved it. I had no idea what to get him before I saw this, but woot! saved the day for sure!
For my father, a watch enthusiast, I found an Invicta brand tool to help him resize watch bands without having to take each new watch he gets to the jeweler. It was just a piece of plastic, but it was so unique. Plus, it was free! I just paid the $5 shipping.
The only thing I must warn you about, though, is to make sure to order things well before you need them. The shipping for both of these sites is about $5, but you get what you pay for. From what I’ve ordered, it is clear that these people believe that patience is a virtue. But you will get your package within a couple weeks, and everything I have received so far has been in great condition, and was well packaged to boot!
What is really fun about these sites is that they each have their own personalities and features. Woot! has a few paragraphs about each daily offer that are incredibly funna, and sometimes host what is called a Woot off, where they offer a certain quality of a bunch of different items in rapid succession.
1saleaday offers a daily featured item, and in addition to that, they also have a wireless item, a watch, a family friendly item, and a piece of jewelry. That’s 5 deals every day!
I really encourage you to check these sites out. You will find something neat every day!
