ThingFling.com – Where you’ll Find Only Hot Things
ThingFling.com is not just another one day deal site. This place is where you’ll find only hot things. The site had been in the business since November 2006 and is associated with an electronics buyer and distributing company which had been purchasing products from overstocked warehouses since 1990.
Unlike other one day deal sites, the deals are replaced at 12 noon instead of the usual 12 midnight. The deals are based from a stock of items that the site had purchased from manufacturers and other companies. The items kept are over stocks or overruns, making them easier for ThingFling.com to purchase and offer them at very low prices.
Most of the deals featured consist of computers, software, peripherals, cellular phones, telephone & accessories, electronics such as audio and video products as well as multimedia devices and home theater components or other related products. Some of the brands offered on the other hand include GE, RCA, Palm, Altec Lansing, Samsung, Phillips, Motorola, Lance, Quartet, Magnavox, GBC, Acoustic Research, and a whole lot more.
As for site navigation, you’ll find it very easy. The interface is user-friendly too. To begin with, the Thing Fling for the day is featured on the main page. It is followed by a related article which talks about the product more. Below, further features describing specifications and other details can also be found. Aside from the item currently offered for the day, you’ll find the past and future flings too. A glimpse of two items about to be listed in the next few days is available. So are five of the past flings. You can also grab the Thing Fling widget and install it in your blog, site, or page. Below these are active hot topic discussions in the community forum.
Speaking of forums, this is where members can be able to talk about a variety of topics such as the products featured, announcements via King of Fling boards, items purchased through the "what did you get area", Thing Fling games, and everything else under the sun.
As for the rest of the links, particularly those found at the footer, don’t expect anything out of the house things, watches, and close outs. These links are empty and simply redirect back to the main page. You will find the closeouts link to be more interesting. Here, more items are offered but without any expiration time frame. They are available as long as supplies last. You can also search for items based on category, brand or manufacturer name, product condition, and price range in this section. The categories include automotive, computer, electronics & accessories, garage, general merchandise, hats, hobby, and watches. You can also search for products based on prices and have them compared with other stores and sites through the Price Search feature. This feature is powered by Price Grabber.
