GottaDEAL Site News
Welcome Former BFAds.net Visitors
Posted on September 1st @ 2:31 pm ET in Site News

Back in 2004 when we started covering Black Friday here on GottaDEAL, there were really only two sites dedicated to posting Black Friday ads and news: GottaDEAL and BFAds.net. We remained competitors over the past 16 years as Black Friday exploded in popularity online.

Today BFAds notified their visitors via email that they have ceased operations. This was expected as they went dark following last year's Black Friday. BFAds was owned by Rakuten, a massive international corporation that apparently had no use for a Black Friday site in their portfolio.

So we'd like to officially welcome former BFAds visitors to GottaDEAL and we hope you'll make us your new home for Black Friday and beyond. We'll continue to post Black Friday ads (assuming there are some this year) along with all the latest news, rumors, deals and more.

We recommend you sign up for our Black Friday alert emails if you aren't already getting them so that you don't miss anything important during Black Friday season. We also have an active forum where you can discuss Black Friday and much more, as well as our Discord server for chat. Our main GottaDEAL site is also open all year with hundreds of hand-picked deals posted every week.
Join the GottaDEAL Discord Server & Chat About Black Friday
Posted on July 1st @ 11:00 am ET in Site News

A couple years ago we set up a GottaDEAL Discord server for those of you who'd like to chat in real-time about Black Friday and anything else with other GottaDEAL visitors and forum members. You can access the server via this invite link and we hope to see many of you in the chat.

For those who are unfamiliar with Discord, it is a free text, voice and video chat service. You can access it via their apps or through a traditional web browser. Once you sign up for an account you can join the GD server using the special invite link.

This time of year there are many very hot deals that appear on a retailer's site and sell out within a few hours or, in many cases, just a few minutes. To help you score these deals before everyone else, we created the very popular (and totally free) GottaDEAL Instant Deal Alerts.

This is an exclusive list which will only be used to send you instant alerts about the absolute hottest deals that we find. To join tens of thousands of others getting these alerts, see this page.
