I started blogging about deals on 11/26/04, on my 20th birthday, while teaching kids down in Brazil.

Somehow 10 years have gone by and I’m still blogging away.

In the meantime there have been some pretty cool deals posted here as well as on the DansDeals Forums, which was launched in 2008.

I talked about and alluded to some of my favorites I took advantage of in this post, so I won’t repeat all of them here.

Post a comment about which deals were your favorites and what you did with them!

I’ve received emails from people who have found their mates on DansDeals glitch tickets and who have brought their kids to see their grandparents for their first time, so I know that cool stories are out there 😀

Thanks for all the deals! By far my favorite one was our 1st class trip to la with the wife and kids for $50! Thanks again Mr. Dans


My cheap trip to Israel!!!


Dan you’ve helped me get into the action with CC’s and have taught me so much!
Also doesn’t hurt that I got 70% off my choson suit from banana a month ago, under 150 bucks for a 550 dollar suit.

@Timmy: I did!@


My favorite by far was the wideroe United tickets to tlv and other places glitch. I got tickets to my sisters wedding to which I otherwise would not have gone to. I paid half of what I would have had to pay otherwise.
Thanks Dan.
May you go from strength to strength.


Can’t believe I missed the Aeroplan glitch last month,if only it was posted to the website and not just the forums


Happy 30th Dan! Many more to come…


Loved the $212.50 ewr to hnl . Bought tickets in July 2009 went January 2010. Used “Oahu Revealed”


dan all your trip that you want with your miles wasn’t for free
because the miles is worth money so it”s not like having first class for free, ex if you use 180k to fly first class it”s points that is worth almost 3000$
