It’s not a Deal, it’s a Steal at DailySteals.com
Obviously, the story about Master Thief at the About Us section is just for sheer entertainment. Nonetheless, DailySteals.com stands by its mission to bring deals that will have you save money. Thus, it feels more than just a deal, the savings you get can be comparable to a steal.
Aside from the actual deals offered every day, one of the highlights of the website is the raffle promo. The site gives items away for free weekly. There is no purchase necessary. You just need to subscribe to the newsletter in order to be automatically provided with an electronic raffle ticket. Check your email everyday to see if you win the item. Additional terms are applied and you can read them all through the website.
If there’s any weakness of the site, it has to be limited customer support and notification. There is no other means to communicate with the company other than email. The same applies to sending notifications about the deals offered every day. The site fails to apply the importance of social media marketing through sites like Facebook and Twitter.
There are no product reviews as well. The deals are offered plainly with no reviews whatsoever. Speaking of reviews, the site is highly commended by review authority TopTenDeals.com. DailySteals.com is one of the top ten daily deals sites for 2011. The lack of reviews can at least be compensated by an entertaining description of the product.
The site offers more than one deal per day as well. The day’s top pick is available on the main page. But you can also find deals for other categories such as mobile, home, luxury, and toys. You can also find deals with no expiration. The Ice Monkey section offers deals that are available until the stocks or supplies last.
If you get bored while shopping, you may also play a game. Some of the games presently available on the site include Pacman, Tetris, Space Invaders, Asteroids, Froggers, Hexxagon, and Simon.
As for the daily deals, other than the different categories mentioned earlier, the home page is where the main deals are featured. These are often consumer electronics products including accessories for computers. Like other daily deal sites, the items are not replaced until midnight even if the item is already sold out. The deals are updated at 12 MN EST.
When making a purchase, the orders are limited to about 3 to 10 items at a time. The products are shipped from the site’s main headquarters in Brooklyn, New York and are normally sent out within four days from the time of order.
