The Monday 9/12/16 Daily Deal at Miniature Market is World's Fair 1893 for $25.60. I'm almost positive that this is practically the everyday price at MM.

MM (Daily Deal) -- $25.60

CSI -- 26.49

CH -- $25.99


Usually, the daily deals offer a 15-20% savings over the regular MM price and competitor's pricing, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

I realize that I am complaining about sales and additional savings, but I just wanted to point out that this deal didn't seem to be as good as most MM daily deals.



EDIT: MM provided an explanation - Glitch in the system.

EDIT II: Daily Deal sale price has been corrected to $20.

Re: [MM] World's Fair 1893 -- $25.60 ... Current Daily Deal that isn't a Great Deal
Yeah, and they had A Distant Plain a few days ago as the daily deal for their normal price ($49.99).

Not sure what's going on

I'm not sure either... A few days before the ADP non-deal, they had another GMT game -- Cuba Libre -- as the daily deal for $36, which was a good deal compared to MM's regular price of $44+.

There doesn't seem to be any consistency with MM and their Daily Deals lately.

I was about to post the same thing. When it came it that was the price. Also, there seems to be a price hike on a lot of stuff in the last few month.

I guess they mean "deals" as in "dealings with us as a company" (aka transactions) instead of "good deals" (aka bargains).

Explanation provided.

Good call. I was thinking the exact same thing. Glad to know I'm not going crazy.

Hopefully this is just an error and wont be the trend going forward.

I'd expect it to get fixed in the next hour or two now once they are open. For example a Distant Plain cited above was a proper deal a month ago, and wasn't actually supposed to be the deal last week. The page changed to point to the actual game on sale around noon. So it looks like they are having problems with the script that changes the daily update page at midnight.

It's some kind of glitch. Sent them a message and they replied that they're working on it.

Re: [MM] World's Fair 1893 -- $25.60 ... Current Daily Deal that isn't a Great Deal
We are having a problem with our system at the moment and have been working on it for the past few days. We have suspended all daily deal emails and won't turn them back on until the problem is fixed. Obviously we aren't intentionally running a daily deal at the normal daily price.

Again, I will post an update once it is fixed.

And this is one of the reasons why I like shopping at Miniature market and CoolstuffInc, they actually talk to you.

I agree wholeheartedly!!!!! I felt bad about writing the original post, but I thought something must be wrong with the system lately.

Once they fix, I hope World's Fair 1893 is still the Daily Deal today, unlike your ADP example. I have been waiting to pull the trigger on a WF1893 purchase. Unless, I missed a recent WF1893 daily deal from MM and that is why it populated the DD page (similar to your ADP example).

I guess I'll have to cross my fingers and wait for MM to fix.

I don't remember WF1893 being the DD recently.

Tried to order but got an "Error 503: Service Unavailable" splash page, stating that MM is temporarily down in preparation of an upcoming sale.

It doesn't say upcoming sale on my end (so they probably changed that in between your post and mine).
