Daily Deals?

You might be wondering what's going on with Big Fish's Daily Deals.

For a long time, I've been posting the Daily Deal for your easy reference. The Daily Deals started in August and were carried on through September. As of yesterday, though, Big Fish - smart business people that they are - changed the rules of the game a little bit.

The Old System
  • Daily Deals were available to everyone.
  • The game and coupon code for the day were revealed on the Big Fish tool bar.
The New System
  • Daily Deals are only available to Big Fish Game Club members.
  • The game for the day is revealed on the Big Fish toolbar.
What does this mean?

This means that if you want to have access to the Daily Deals, you have to spend $6.99 each month to be a game club member. For some people, this might be fine. For others of us, we can't afford even that cost.

So what used to be essentially open-to-the-public deals, are now deals you get for paying something.

I tried to save you the work of installing the Big Fish Toolbar by posting the coupon codes here (Note: I read the Big Fish site to make sure this wasn't "against the rules" before I started posting). But now, I don't know how the Daily Deals work because my membership is currently not intact.

Does anyone know if they offer a coupon code to members?

I'll keep my eye open for any other standard deals - the kind Big Fish offered semi-regularly before the Daily Deals started. If I find any, you know I'll post them here.

In the meantime, I'll mention that if you buy 6 games from Big Fish in October, you get a 7th game free!


  1. The coupon code can now be found only on the My Game Club page under My Account.

  2. Thanks for the info, irishdec52!

  3. You don't have to be an active BFG member to avail of the deal. You only need to it to see the code (which can readily be found in forums if you want to). I had an inactive membership, found today's code for Hell's Kitchen (KITCOOK299) via Google, and it discounted the game for me at $2.99. I was subscribed automatically to the BFG club, but I cancelled it right away. I wasn't forced to buy a credit.
