The idea is that some of these will eventually become "daily" deals and will rotate on a regular basis.
Also the public had free access to our "sponsored deals" you just had to visit the the thread for a link. This is supposed to be the same idea.

It is a part of the "TechWiki" deals feature: Hot Deals - TechWiki
So it is an in house thing rather than us selling out the website - We want to bring the hot deals to you guys so you are aware of them and we are trying to spur retailers in offering exclusive discounts.

It is a two way street - we want to be able to offer great deals on products from local retailers - and retailers want to get something for offering an exclusive deal.
