Can’t say that I have… seems I’m always a day late and dollar short. I don’t get over to Etsy and like sites all too often, but this is tempting me to go over and see what they have that just screams “MeLiSSa”! LOL!

Lisa May 20, 2011 at 2:07 am

First is never good…

I have purchased scrapbook things from deal of the day sites. Oh, and some spa services.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Kocinera May 20, 2011 at 2:12 am

I subscribe to a couple deal-a-day sites, but have yet to actually purchase anything from them, since I’ve only discovered this cool new phenomenon just recently.

Scott O. May 20, 2011 at 2:17 am

Yes! I purchased 3 16×20 canvas prints from and loved them!

Yana May 20, 2011 at 2:17 am

I haven’t done that either… but who knows what’s around the riverband! ;-) Hope my luck finally starts working for me, because I really suck at lottery games! :-D

kathleen.summers May 20, 2011 at 2:44 am

Well if Groupon counts, I’ve done it twice and was happy both times. I just used one of my Groupons yesterday for a Shutterfly photobook. Can’t wait to get it! Such a cool giveaway. I’ll have to check them out.

DK Brittain May 20, 2011 at 2:44 am

Sooooo super super cute!!!

Eshan Safaya May 20, 2011 at 2:44 am

I use all the time to order stuff because they have really good dals for certain days. The best deal was buying a laptop that was on sale and i had an extra coupon. Typing from it right now.

DK Brittain May 20, 2011 at 2:47 am

ooops…. I have purchased deals from Groupon, Living Social….but sorry not Deal of the Day….Im a newbie….

Vikki May 20, 2011 at 2:48 am

I bought a gorgeous Antik Batik Lucinda Pareo piece that I use when I travel as a shawl, skirt and scarf! It was a fabulous daily deal on Gilt Groupe…

Lindsay M. May 20, 2011 at 2:48 am

I have purchased Memphis Redbirds tickets on a deal-of-the-day site. It was a great deal, as the tickets were over half off! :)

Laurie Ann Phinney May 20, 2011 at 2:48 am

Hi Kevin and Amanda!
I have yet to purchase anything on a “deal a day” site, but if the right deal comes along, and I want it…I will take the leap. VeryJane looks funky and delightful. I plan to visit them at Facebook and scope out their daily deals. As far as Amazon goes – I am a loyal fan…Visit almost daily and have packages arriving on a weekly basis. Smiles. Thank you for the opportunity to pick up a few more items from my wish list. Off to visit Daily Jane.
Wishing You a Fabulous Weekend!

Lara Hanson May 20, 2011 at 2:48 am

I have never bought anything from “deal a day site”

Susan M May 20, 2011 at 2:50 am

I’ve been very happy w/ a few Groupon buys, but seems like I always miss out on other deal of the day site items. I’m looking forward to checking this one out. Thanks for another great opportunity!

Jen May 20, 2011 at 2:53 am

I have purchased once from Groupon and once from Woot! I was happy with both purchases.

Christie R. May 20, 2011 at 2:55 am

Almost bought something from on groupon but never did. There are some amazing daily deals out there!

Alison May 20, 2011 at 3:07 am

I’ve obviously been leading a very sheltered life, I’d not heard of deal a day websites. I’m signing up now!!

Amy @DYKTMP? May 20, 2011 at 3:08 am

Oh yeah! I’ve bought coupons for things, like on Groupon and Living Social. Some good, some bad. I’ve also purchased a couple things from, like shirts from and gadgets from I think they are great deals. I get emails from a bunch of sites everyday.

Nice choice on the Amazon card, BTW ;0)

Kaitlin May 20, 2011 at 3:12 am

I just bought a deal through groupon last week for the hair salon I got to! I was excited to finally see a place that I actually go to and the deal was for half off of a haircut, which I need!

marilyn May 20, 2011 at 3:29 am

I have gotten a few deals! I scooped up 2 movie tickets for $9 and I scooped up 2 gift certificates to a spa $100 value (each) for $40!

Hi Amanda… lovely giveaway!
I didn’t know about the site but now I have thanks to you… ;-)
It look awesome… i’ll def browse around to see what’s on offer.
Have a lovely day!

Amy May 20, 2011 at 3:40 am

I’ve never bought anything off a “deal a day” website, but I do shop at RueLaLa and Gilt for great deals on fashion! Though their sites are more than just one-day-only deals.

Allison May 20, 2011 at 3:41 am

I’m slightly addicted to Deal-a-day sites. I mostly buy restaurant deals and spa specials. My favorite was a deal to some fantastic cooking classes. I’ve never seen Very Jane before. Thanks!

Ray K May 20, 2011 at 3:43 am

I have never used this site before. I am anxiously reading the other comments to see how good it really is.
I have checked out Etsy a number of times.
I usually do my buying from amazon.

pinksade May 20, 2011 at 3:45 am

Nope, I’ve never bought anything from those sites before. I’m tempted to but I always miss the deal when I decide to buy it! :p

stacy arnold May 20, 2011 at 3:48 am

actually i was just checking groupon and right now! i love the deal of the day websites!!!
the best one yet was 3 spray tans for $25!

Vini aka Pooh! May 20, 2011 at 3:58 am

I love a deal a day sites. I have signed up for 7-8 of them and make purchases atleast once a week and I have never been disappointed. Last one I brought was to a Chocolate place near home

Marie/Mer May 20, 2011 at 4:00 am

I’ve never bought from one of these sites. I guess I really don’t trust them tobe good. I buy plenty from other sites!!???

Tarayn May 20, 2011 at 4:02 am

Thanks for this fun giveaway! I love the deal for the day promos and scored my dad a fly fishing trip for cheap for father’s day! Have fun at BlogHer!!

Mary Brown May 20, 2011 at 4:26 am

Amanda, I have never used a deal a day site. I am not opposed, just never have. I like Amamzon, though, Thanks for the contest.

Jaci Moser May 20, 2011 at 4:32 am

I visit Groupon pretty regularly. I have bought some various restaurant coupons and a spa day retreat. I LOVE your site, it’s become my new groupon!! <3

Stephanie M. May 20, 2011 at 4:39 am

I have purchased some Red Robin gift cards through a deal a day site. They were $20 gift cards for $10. Can’t pass that up! Thanks for the contest.

Julie K. May 20, 2011 at 4:39 am

I get both deal of the day and the local groupon offer sent daily. I have bought many restaraunt certificates on both sights and yes since we eat out often they have been worth it. Love getting a deal.

Crystal May 20, 2011 at 4:45 am

I buy stuff on Groupon all the time – my favorite deals have been the Shutterfly photo books and the Redbox and Blockbuster Express deals. Thanks for the chance to win!

Barb May 20, 2011 at 4:53 am

What a cool site! Thanks!

Amy Marti May 20, 2011 at 4:55 am

Michelle Brubaker May 20, 2011 at 5:02 am

I have never purchased anything from a deal-a-day site, but I am intrigued – and would love to win an amazon voucher! Thank you.

Heather @ Sweet Sins 2 Share May 20, 2011 at 5:03 am

I guess I am not as hip as I once thought because I did not know about the deal a day sites but those camera straps at VeryJane are adorable!!

Jenny May 20, 2011 at 5:04 am

Never have but if i win, oh yeah!

Dorangela May 20, 2011 at 5:04 am

maren May 20, 2011 at 5:17 am

Best thing I’ve ever purchased was from livingsocial I believe! An Amazon card!

I’ve used Groupon before. I bought the ever so popular Redbox deal (three rental codes for $1)! Awesome deal!!!!

The Monogrammed Mrs. May 20, 2011 at 5:21 am

Thanks for the opportunity!!
I have not ever bought anything from those sites but I have received a Groupon as a gift.

Meghan May 20, 2011 at 5:22 am

Donna Tafuri May 20, 2011 at 5:23 am

Susan F. May 20, 2011 at 5:28 am

I have never purchased from a deal-a-day site, but would consider if the deal was amazing.

Sally Iverson May 20, 2011 at 5:30 am

I never HAVE bought from a Deal a Day site, but I’m open to new opportunities.

Great success on your new venture !!!

Sally May 20, 2011 at 5:30 am

Amanda, I have bought a few things on “daily deals” sites and all have been great! Thanks for the chance to win a gift card. I love your site – food, fonts and fun!!

ava-j May 20, 2011 at 5:30 am

I’ve never tried buying through the internet ever (yeah, I know, I’m so behind the times, lol!)…but the goodies at veryjane are sooo tempting!

Candace Emerson May 20, 2011 at 5:30 am

I use deal of the day sites all the time, been able to get some fantastic deals!

Jean May 20, 2011 at 5:30 am

I am a huge fan of a couple of deal a day sites. I frequent and have purchased from which also has BabySteals and KidSteals. The items I bought are first quality and I never miss a chance to check out what is today’s deal. Great prices and quick shipping.
I have just joined Zulily and love their offerings too.

If you know what you want and the brand you prefer, deal a day sites are fabulous.

Maria M May 20, 2011 at 5:31 am

I’ve purchased Sweet and Sassy packages for my girls and their friends (birthday gifts) on Groupon and Living Social. I watch a lot of the deal a day type sites with their daily emails but so far that’s all I’ve gotten.

Lisa Marie May 20, 2011 at 5:31 am

I love Woot! I am so excited to have a place to get cute items like these!

Vicki Mc May 20, 2011 at 5:31 am

Yuyp, I’ve bought a few things from the!

melanie May 20, 2011 at 5:33 am

love it! definately looking forward to their daily deals…
i get updates from groupon, but haven’t bought anything yet. i have done the deal where you get the resturant gift certificate super cheap…it was easy and saved us a lot! i think that was

Kristin Yeager May 20, 2011 at 5:33 am

I buy from Groupon and LivingSocial all of the time. We especially love getting the restaurant deals because dining out with a family of four can get kinda pricey!

Astrid May 20, 2011 at 5:34 am

I have bought a few things from – one time I ordered some usb chargers on April Fool’s Day, hoping for a surprise Bag of Crap instead of the pretty useless chargers… no luck. *sigh*

Wini May 20, 2011 at 5:34 am

I have not purchased anything from a deal a day site before. I think I need to look into them some more! Thanks for the chance to win!
Hugs, Wini

Ladynred May 20, 2011 at 5:35 am

I’ve never bought anything in their site since I didn’t know!
Love the flower!

Julie Cook May 20, 2011 at 5:35 am

I love Deal of the Day sites, I currently watch 2 sites every day. I have bought many things on these sites like earbuds, shark iron, wii accessories, wireless keyboard and hdmi cables. I have been very happy with my purchases!

Andrea May 20, 2011 at 5:36 am

Does Groupon count? If so, I bought a pedicure at my favorite salon for 50% off – can’t beat that! My toes were very happy.

Myranda May 20, 2011 at 5:37 am

I’ve purchased some salon services and a wine tasting from similar sites, and I’ve been really happy with them. I need to check this one out though!

Lindsey W. May 20, 2011 at 5:39 am

Such a cute site! Thanks for showing us!

Tracy May 20, 2011 at 5:41 am

I’ve used SPECIALICIOUS. Not so special. :( I’ve purchased 3 items in 2 years. One was a very bad experience (carpet cleaning). However, this one sounds SO cool. Can’t wait to check it out!!!!!

Gretchen May 20, 2011 at 5:41 am

I bought a spa package from Living Social once…I got a fabulous facial, a dreamy massage, and a crooked haircut :/ Oh well, maybe next time!

Danni May 20, 2011 at 5:43 am

Yes! I love deals!!! Winkflash offers photos deals daily and I rarely refuse a deal there. I have also purchases scrapbook dailies, toy dailies (for the kiddos, esp at Christmas time), as well as many from Woot & Amazon! I got my hubby into it as well!! It’s fun to find them! Thanks for the chance to win!

Ms. Sew n Sew May 20, 2011 at 5:47 am

Yes I get notifications from two deal a day websites here in Canada. Have made two purchases one for a mannie peddi combo which I will be using next week will post my feedback. The other junk removal…does the snow drop stuff cause I swear it seems to be in the yard come spring?
Enjoy the weekend!

Summer May 20, 2011 at 5:48 am

I get deal of the day emails from several sites. Most of them are for local deals and it never seems to be something I need or want. This sounds completely different and might get me in trouble :) I have a feeling I would like everything. Plus I love Etsy type stuff. I can get lost on that site for hours if I don’t watch out.

Lesa May 20, 2011 at 5:48 am

Just got my first deal recently on babyhalfoff which was a woombie for my first baby boy due in Sept! I think it was a pretty good deal, we’ll see
:-) Amazon is fantastic! Always have excellent shipping & service!

Debbie May 20, 2011 at 5:51 am

i bought an alexander wang skirt from a refinery 29 steal of the day sale. it was a little plainer than his usual stuff & a little less in the quality. leading me to believe that designers create special lower end pieces they mass produce for these types of sales. its a brilliant marketing strategy. after all, i fell for it….

Nancy May 20, 2011 at 5:52 am

I haven’t bought anything on deal a day sites, but have been tempted! Thanks for this!

Rhonda May 20, 2011 at 5:54 am

I haven’t ever bought anything on a site like this but I checked it out! I will be returning!

missy r May 20, 2011 at 5:55 am

i am a wooter. i love and – i shop on ebay and etsy all year round for special items and cheap replacements when some of my favorites go missing or end up damaged.

ebay i find is the least reliable…

can’t wait to check out this new page!!

Mrs. K. May 20, 2011 at 5:55 am

I’ve bought from Groupon several times. They really helped me out with Christmas gifts.

Melissa May 20, 2011 at 5:56 am

I have subscribed to a couple different deals of the day…..One is for local deals and the other is not. I have yet to purchase, but have been tempted!

Debbie H. May 20, 2011 at 6:00 am

I discovered the great deals at Groupon in the last few months and have gotten
some really great deals there!

Joy May 20, 2011 at 6:00 am

Yep, I’ve bought something from a deal a day site. In fact, I’ve bought a ton. Right now my favorite was a summer pass for my daughter to go to an inside play place. In the heat of the summer this is very worth it.

Emily May 20, 2011 at 6:00 am

I’ve never found anything on a deal a day site that interests me, but I’m always on the lookout!

Elizabeth May 20, 2011 at 6:01 am

I never have but I would like to!

Debbie H. May 20, 2011 at 6:04 am

Actually did it for the first time this morning. Purchased $40 worth of food and drinks at a local steakhouse for $20.

Nicole May 20, 2011 at 6:04 am

I frequently buy “daily” type deals. Usually the cost is $10 or $20 and the coupon is good for $20 or $40 at the establishment (hair cuts, restaurants, retail store, thrift store). It’s always a good deal if you are going to patronize that place of business anyway.

Martha S. May 20, 2011 at 6:04 am

I have purchased from Groupon, Living Social and Pick Your Plum. My most recent purchase was a set of antique-inspired skeleton keys from Pick Your Plum! I just got them in the mail a few days ago and they are beautiful! I can’t wait to make a little shadow box frame with them. But I think I’m going to wear one as a necklace today.

Thanks for the heads up on this fun deal-a-day site. I think I’m going to enjoy it!

Sarah N May 20, 2011 at 6:05 am

Does Groupon count? If so, yes I have. Got a Groupon for $40 worth of fabric for $20 at a very cute quilt store in Atlanta.

Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!

Janet Witzell May 20, 2011 at 6:05 am

I haven’t purchased anything from Very Jane YET, but I do enjoy Etsy! Looks interesting.

Yvonne C May 20, 2011 at 6:07 am

I have gotten some really good deals on the Living Social daily deals. I got $40 worth of cupcakes for $20…yum! Lots of half prices deals….I love a bargain! I also get emails for deals from several airlines….I’m always on the lookout for a great deal on a trip.

Diane May 20, 2011 at 6:07 am

No I never have !
Thanks for the fun give-away!

Jo-Anne Jackson May 20, 2011 at 6:08 am

YES! I have purchased items from “a deal a day” websites. I have purchased electronic items, such as HDMI cables and a watch from, and I have purchased scrapbooking items from Also I LOVE buying the deal a day items that L.L. Bean has to offer at
Another site that changes items every couple of minutes that is totally fun for inexpensive jewelry is

Everything I have ever purchased from a deal a day site has been legitimately a very good deal. That’s why I check these sites everyday to see what they are offering. I’m excited to learn about this new one. Thanks Amanda!

Ann S May 20, 2011 at 6:09 am

I love Etsy, but have never purchased from a “deal of the day” site. I’ll be checking Very Jane out for sure though! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Donna May 20, 2011 at 6:10 am

I have never actually gotten a deal from a deal a day website but I do receive daily emails from a few and I check out the deals each day. We’re trying to conserve right now so we’re not spending much. I tried to purchase one yesterday but it was all sold out by the time I got to it.
Thanks for the opportunity.

Quadmom31 May 20, 2011 at 6:10 am

I have purchased a few Groupons and over-all been happy with them. I have never heard of Woot but I can’t wait to check them out. Thanks!

Jaimie May 20, 2011 at 6:10 am

I haven’t purchased for a deal-a-day site – yet!! I’ll have to give this one a look! Thanks for the great giveaway!

dana May 20, 2011 at 6:11 am

haven’t caught a deal yet! Maybe the time has come :-)

Karina D. May 20, 2011 at 6:11 am

I am sing-up to some deal of the day site but as a yet I have not bought anything yet! I have purchased from Etsy though and love it because they are one-of-a-kind.

Renee May 20, 2011 at 6:12 am

I buy from Groupon and LivingSocial all the time and love them. Haven’t heard of Very Jane before, look forward to seeing what they offer!
