This is a sponsored review. With more daily deals sites than you can shake a stick at, one has to come up with some pretty good stuff if I’m not going to be bored as hell and click away immediately, even when they order a sponsored review. I’m pretty darn busy and daily deals sites only cause distractions, right?
Wrong. This site offers (and has offered) several products I myself find highly useful, so my attention was caught. You see, while some of you might forget this at times, I’m still Dutch. Which means I’m cheap, in a good way. I like hunting for deals. I like getting things “on the cheap”. In fact, a lot of my consulting work is for eBay, you could almost say I sort of specialize in cheap. Except for those of you who know my consulting rates. Ah well, let’s stop digging a hole for myself by trying to be smarter than Lisa Barone and start talking about those daily deals.
So, in comes Mighty Deals. It works as one expects from a daily deals site, sign up, get emails, see if it’s interesting, delete 99% of the time. Well, 80% of the time in this case if you’re anything like me. Just check some of their current deals. Like Smaller, an OS X app to easily minify JS. Not rocket science, but bloody useful and at $10, a steal. Picons Icons, 500 icons that are not the ever present FamFamFam icons and royalty free, at only $21.
Or a deal that you’ve missed already, 3 tests from usertesting.com for $50… Invaluable feedback for $50. I’ll subscribe and I’ll stay subscribed, and I think you should too. If you’re not going to subscribe to this one for the deals, be sure to download this freebie, a web icon set “for business”. Not the best ever but you’ll never know once these things come in useful. There’s more free stuff like that there.
This, to me, is what deals site should look like to keep me happy, I hope you agree. If not, be glad that I got paid for this review and go on with your life, I’ll snag the deals away myself :)
