The FatHeadDog Guide to Daily Deal and Flash Sites

The landscape of daily deal sites and flash sales site is broad. I should know, I wrote about them all in the December 2011 Cover Story of SUCCESS magazine (and shamefully signed up for every single one. Really.) Here’s a quick at-a-chance chart of all the daily deal sites I came across. If I missed any, let FatHeadDog know! I need more email in my inbox.

Melissa & Doug Toys Starting at $6.99

Zulilly is having a great sale on Melissa & Doug toys starting at $6.99–a great price for these really high quality wooden toys, but I must give you one word of caution. This toy scares the hell out of me.

Melissa and Doug

Out from the shadows of the night, you’ll hear a phantom “Neiiiighhhhhh.” Get closer and you’ll hear a “Mooooooooo” in the night. Don’t lose a piece to this puzzle or you too will be running from a child’s toy in the middle of the night.

Skullcandy Headphones for $4

Skullcandy headphones on sale for only $11.99 at Deal of the Day. I almost put “Smokin’ Buds” in the headline, but you can see what confusion that would cause.
