I’ve been having a blast with Brad Feld’s Amazing Deals which was created by Deal Co-op, a recent graduate of the TechStars Seattle program. Last week’s deal – the Agloves – ended up getting picked up on Lifehacker and the limit of 500 gloves were sold (at 50% off) overnight! As part of the experience, I’m learning a lot about the Daily Deal business, how it works, what the actual economics are, and what the friction points are.
The latest Brad Feld’s Amazing Deal is now online. We’ve got a great one this week. You can purchase a $70 voucher for use on the Trek Light Gear website for $39. Trek Light has lots of great stuff, including some of the nicest hammocks you’ll ever see. We priced this deal to allow you to purchase their best selling Double Hammock, but you can also use it on other gear.
If you are interested in running a deal on the Brad Feld store, helping bring great deals to readers of this blog while helping me better understand the Daily Deal marketplace dynamics, let me know. I’m looking for deals that can be bought online and shipped nationally and that appeal to a high tech audience.
