This post is very symbolic. It has taken us over two years, but we are finally ready to have a 4th daily deal city. You’re probably are wondering  “What!? Aren’t you guys a daily deals site?” Well, yes and no. Yes, we have at least 6 deals a day. But if you’ve been following us for a while, you’ve probably recognized that New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco are the only cities with daily deals posted everyday at 9:30AM, 11:50AM and 2:30PM Eastern (they go on Twitter and Facebook at 10AM, 12PM and 3PM). While the other three slots are filled by our other 9 cities.  Having 4 daily deals cities also means we will be going to 7 deals a day for the majority of the week.

It’s tough to be designated a daily deal city – the city itself needs to have a sufficient deal flow and deal diversity. Deal flow is easier of the two — prices change constantly and we can report them all day, everyday. However, to keep our readers engaged, we need to see deal diversity. There has to be deals to different places everyday. If we post deals to the same places over and over again, we’re not worth visiting and supporting.

We took a very unscientific poll yesterday on Twitter and Facebook to see when you would like to see the DC deal get posted and 9AM won (the option that lost was 11AM) — which really means 8:50AM on the site. The only time a DC deal won’t show up at 9AM is if it is between DC and LA or San Francisco, in those cases, they will be at the LA or San Francisco time slots. This has been a long road for us and like Kilimanjaro, it is a mountain that we have summited – there’s the symbolism in case you missed it.

We thank you all for your generosity and continuing support to helping us get to this point.  – the tfd team

If you are still reading this (sorry for being so long-winded), Kilimanjaro can be an adventure and a half! Besides climbing the mountain, it is also a great starting point for a safari. Enjoy your trip and the daily deals!
