Now that Black Friday & Cyber Monday are over, you may be thinking that the deals are over as well. But as we've mentioned many times, GottaDeal.com is open all year and we definitely don't stop bringing you the deals.
We post hundreds of deals each week on the home page, and we have thousands of coupons and discounts for your favorite retailers. Sign up for our Instant Deal Alerts to get e-mails when we find Black Friday-level deals during the year.
Keep following us on Twitter and make sure you've liked our Facebook page to keep in touch during the rest of the year. You can also sign up for our Black Friday mailing list and we'll send you an e-mail when we get going again.
In closing, thank you for making our 12th year covering Black Friday here on GottaDeal.com another big success. Black Friday is covered everywhere these days, but as the largest independent Black Friday site, we hope we've provided something that the other sites just can't match.
We hope you found the site useful and we also hope you'll stick around all year long. We'll be posting any relevant news updates and rumors over the next 9 months or so, and we'll see everyone again in September 2016 as we resume our Black Friday coverage for the 13th consecutive year.
