Top o' the mornin' to ye, Deal Lovers! This Paddy's Day, Irish eyes are smiling here at BFAds! In addition to the traditional corned beef and Hot Deals, our intrepid Deal Hunters stumbled upon a wee leprechaun, lost and far from home. We helped him score a deal on this Lenovo Y50-70 laptop, and he shared with us the remaining bit of his gold. We turned that gold into cash, and used that cash to buy a $100 dollar American Express Gift Card, which we are now going to give away in our Paddy's Day Pot O' Gold Giveaway! This contest will last for St. Patrick's Day 2015 only, so get your entries in by 11:59 PM central time tonight.
To enter, you can leave us a comment on this post (share an Irish blessing, a drinking song, Guinness Stew recipe, whatever!), Subscribe to our newsletter, or share this one day contest with your friends on Twitter, or Facebook. Make sure you then use the widget in this post to get credit for your entries. (Note: Mobile users will have to use the mobile site's menu to switch to the desktop "Classic" version to comment)!
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light.
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.

Everybody loves a Friday, but did you know that historically Fridays were considered the unluckiest day? Back in the 16th century, and even before that, old wives tales insisted that one should never start a project, a voyage, or a relationship on Fridays. Even babies born on that day were considered unfortunate. The number 13 also has a history of bad reviews, and when you put the two together, it's a double dose of superstitious heebie-jeebies. All we know is that the deals don't quit just because things get a little scary, and our deal-hunters have had pretty good luck this morning filling up the Hot Deals page with awesome Black Friday prices!
Below we've listed out a few of the best of today's highlights, and of course we'll be sending you out a super-lucky Hot Deals newsletter around lunchtime with even more of them. If you haven't yet done so, you can Subscribe to our emails and not only will you get the updates every day on our best priced finds -you'll also get entries in our Pi Day 2015 Giveaway for a chance to win a Nintendo 3DS XL tomorrow morning! Aren't you glad to stopped by BFAds? Have a lucky day, and enjoy the deals!
Today may not be Pi Day, but it is coming soon and we are celebrating early! Recognized around the world as a celebration of the mathematical sciences, Pi Day takes place on March 14 because the first three digits of the mathematical constant are 3.14 -but this year is special!
This Saturday the date will be 3.14.15 (a continuation of the consecutive digits of the numeral Pi) and we're going to announce our winner after 9 AM because we love to keep a joke going! Visit the widget below to get multiple entries every day in our drawing for a Red Nintendo 3DS XL with Super Mario Bros. Gold Edition pre-installed on it! Don't forget to share our giveaway with your friends for additional entries, and have a great Pi Day!
