Anyone else notice the lack of really good deals lately?

I'm only seeing Frontpage deals with maybe up to 20 or so upvotes. Remember the good 'ole' days when there were tons of high upvote count deals? I was buying great deals almost everyday. I hadn't bought anything in a long while that was really a great deal and something I felt lucky to get at the price.

Deals are more ho-hum these days.

I guess with most companies now charging taxes, not leltting you stack coupons, hardly any rebates anymore, and retailers not offering free shipping, etc, it's a little disappointing. So many YMMV brickseeks too.

There used to be certain Ebay sellers that had great deals also but they are no longer allowed to be posted. I miss those also.

I have seen a few but not many. When there is one I am usually too late.

Good deals come here to die. So all the smart posters go elsewhere to share their deals

So all you got left are sponsored shill posts from staff like cat food and deodorant.

I think we can ask but people aren't going to want to share. They want to keep that info to themselves or else less of a chance they get in on the deals. We may just have to go on a hunt ourselves to find it. Smilie

This^^^.

Bought a load of T-shirts, shorts and shoes for dirt cheap.

Granted, it's been a while since something like this came along..

TDMVP73 with Newegg deals when they were FAR was good too.

Also need to remember that the economy was in the tanks for nearly a decade and vendors had to generate revenue somehow. Now that the economy is recovering, everyone wants a piece of your wallet. (taxes are higher, free shipping requires minimums, coupons won't stack, etc)
