Yugster Is the Original Source for Daily Deals
SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Yugster.com, Utah’s own Daily Deals website, has been offering up Daily Deals to a nationwide audience since 2005, making it the oldest independent daily deal site on the Internet.
Never heard of Yugster.com? How about Daily Deals? If Internet coupon pioneers Groupon or LivingSocial come to mind, you are on the right track because Yugster is similar to those sites — Deals are as much as 90% off — but with Yugster there is one big difference: There are no coupons! When you go to Yugster, you get offers for products that you can buy at the lowest price on the Internet. You don’t need to pay for something today that you may or may not use sometime later.
“We hear from many customers that they purchased a Group Coupon online with good intentions but never got around to using it,” commented Bill Hockett, President of Yugster.com. “Everything on Yugster.com is available for purchase right now, and it arrives at your doorstep in a few days.”
Yugster began as a site for gadget hounds and those who love electronics.
“We also get requests for kitchen appliances, jewelry and home goods like high-quality linens and towels,” said Schott Taylor, Director of Marketing. “We now feature those things along with our spy pens and iPod speakers.”
Yugster became known as a place that has fun, interesting things for prices that are hard to believe. Customers point to the free products that pop up periodically as one reason to keep visiting the site. The Company’s Daily Deal is put up on the site at 6:00am Eastern, and when it is a free product, like an iPhone adapter, Stainless Steel wallet, or a Swiss multi-tool, which have all been free, they sell out very quickly.
“We also offer a special deal we call Plugster’s Junk Box about twice a month,” said Bill Hockett, President of Yugster.com. “Our customers have the opportunity to buy a box of ‘junk,’ and they have no idea what will be in it. Once we sent out an entire pallet of electronics to a customer who had paid $14.97 for their Junk Box. Another customer received a brand new Asus Tablet PC in their box. It’s a lot of fun and Plugster’s Junk Box sells out every time. As many as 10,000 Plugster’s Junk Boxes have sold in a few hours.”
Yugster.com is a privately held business, based in Salt Lake City, that offers products for sale for one day at the best prices anywhere on the Internet. The Company has been in operation since 2006, making it one of the first Daily Deals sites in existence. Yugster’s growth has been exceptional; its membership has approximately doubled every year. 80% of the Company’s employees are based in Utah.
