Yesterday, we introduced a whole new system for handling the Deal of the Day. We've automated much of the work of managing deal of the day to make it both easier on us and easier on you.
For us, it will mean a lot less work.
For you, you will no longer be asked to remember if you're eligible to buy a deal. In the past, we had a requirement that you couldn't buy the same deal within a six-month window (that's now four months), but it was kind of up to you to remember your last purchase date. With this new system, the database will remember that information for you.
To make this work, however, you will need to register and log into your account to make a purchase. From that point on, everything with PayPal works just like it did before.
This new system will allow us to post deal of the day more frequently and at more random times, giving more people a chance to enjoy the benefits of these bargains.

This is a new application. if you have problems, email details [email protected]
Also, on the four-month rule, everybody starts fresh today. Prior purchases won't be tracked.
TWO NOTES: Two issues that came up yesterday.
The registration system for Deal of the Day is not connected to the registration system for The Batavian (for posting comments, for example). You need to register specifically with Deal of the Day to be able to buy deals (good idea, as many people did, to register in advance, so you're logged in and ready to go when a deal pops up that you want to buy before anybody else does).
When you are registering, it's just for our system. You will still need to log into your PayPal account to complete the purchase.
