In case you haven’t noticed, Flash Purchase now has a new menu tab that for you should mean much more than a tab.
We just launched over 100,000 great deals from our partners in a wide range of product and service categories. From that perfect bag to your dream spring break getaway, you will not be disappointed by our up-to-date and ever expanding deal library, which, hopefully, will give you fresh new ideas about what you can create and buy with your friends ;)
While you are helping us with an exciting online shopping revolution, have fun saving for you and your friends! Happy shopping.
Cold weather is finally waning and it’s time to dust off winter with new spring gadgets, clothes, accessories and trips. Are you ready for more shopping but your wallet hasn’t recovered from the winter holidays? No worries! Here at Flash Purchase, our hard working Flashers have just created a Springtime Deal Creators Contest for all innovative shoppers and sellers to get great deals AND a chance to win $200.
How to join the contest?
- Register with us at www.flashpurchase.com if you haven’t already, and create a deal on whatever product or service you want to buy or sell by the end of March.
- Share your deal with friends and invite them to join. The bigger the purchasing group, the more you save or make.

Get pumped for this spring party with all other Flashers! There are better ways to shop and sell online that you may not know yet. Why not try something new this Spring and help us build a more transparent and user-driven online shop where everyone benefits? :)
In the year 2000 George Gilder published what has since been called the “bible of new age communications”. This book outlines the future of telecommunication in all of its facets. The biggest point that Gilder makes, and the point that is most relevant to you and your company is the idea of infinite bandwidth.
What is infinite bandwidth?
Now this term “bandwidth” can be confusing, but it simply means communication. Infinite communication, that is what Gilder sees as the future of the technological era. So how is this relevant to the business world? Once applied, this concept completely changes the game; the future of business is online. With infinite bandwidth geographical limits disappear and the traditional business model changes. People will be constantly connected and easily united.
Where are we now?
We’re not completely there yet. Traditional businesses still exist and will for a long time. However there are some examples of infinite bandwidth businesses. Flash Purchase is one example of this. The company started in 2010 as an idea. This idea quickly grew into a business concept, and in late 2011 Flash Purchase, LLC was born. The company consists of 6 members, most of whom have never met one another in person.
How does it work?
The biggest avenue of communication is through email. Email can follow you most anywhere with the advancement of smartphones and it’s a easy to use. Online databases serve as the heart and soul of a company. With these databases everyone can share documents, images and anything else. Verbal communication is easy with online conference calling. The only thing that you really miss out on with an infinite bandwidth business are the awkward handshakes!
After sorting out the kinks and making sure Flash Purchase looks just as great on a tablet as it does on other browsers, we are happy to announce that Flash Purchase is now fully accessible on iPad and other tablets. We thank all of our current fans who have registered and been with Flash Purchase since the beginning stages and are so excited for what the future holds as we continue to make improvements to the site.
In honor of this, we are initiating a new contest in which one lucky entrant will win an iPad mini. All you have to do is go to Flash Purchase and if you haven’t already, register. Then, click on create a deal and enter a unique deal that you would like to see on the website. Then, share the deal on your social networking sites and get at least nine friends to join your deal. If at least 25 users create deals, each deal creator will be entered into a drawing, and one person will be rewarded with the iPad mini with Wi-Fi 16GB.
The sweepstakes will be running from now through February 14, 2013, and what better way to start off the new year than great savings and possibly an iPad mini?
We are excited to announce that Flash Purchase launched today!
After months and months trying to perfect the site to most effectively meet the needs of buyers and sellers, we can’t wait for everyone to start trying it out!
The products at Flash Purchase are already significantly discounted, but to show our buyers and sellers how much we appreciate their business, we have a few incentives to get the ball rolling!
While most deal sites take a commission between 30-50%, Flash Purchase’s fee is only 10%. But for the first five sellers, that fee is eliminated post-rebate.
The first five sellers to create deals will have that 10% completely waived as their commission fee will be rebated, and all sellers who create deals within the first month will pay a reduced commission fee of 7.5% post-rebate. Sellers who choose to offer an early deal will also receive free advertising of their deals to Flash Purchase’s thousands of Facebook fans and other social media contacts.
Buyers will also save this season when they join deals at Flash Purchase as they join others creating group purchasing power leading to great prices. If 100 or more users join a deal on the website and the deal goes through, each participant will also automatically be entered to win the same dollar value of that deal. One winner will be awarded per completed deal.
The savings are truly endless. Come see what we’ve been working so hard on at Flash Purchase.

Discounters Celebrate 50th Anniversary as Flash Purchase Readies Launch of New Commerce Initiative
There’s no denying that we live in an age dominated by the Internet. Although the benefits of the online marketplace are undeniable, we often forget clever innovations that existed way before the Web!
This is definitely the case with discount shopping, where the first thing that comes to mind is the daily deal site. While this is a great place to find deals, bargain shoppers flourished far earlier than the advent of the Internet.
That’s why we are honoring Walmart, Target, and Kmart, iconic discount stores who are celebrating their 50 year anniversary. In fact, only five years after their founding in 1962, 42 percent of all retail sales were from discount stores. Fast forward to 2010 and that number skyrocketed to 87 percent! That percentage was able to rise in part by wholesale stores like Costco and Dicks, clever marketing such as Kmart’s “blue light special”, Walmart’s “Rollback”, and of course daily deal websites.
We commend each of these important retailers on their 50th anniversary and thank them for providing value to their customers in the form of product selection and more competitive pricing. As we embark on launching a new commerce platform that empowers consumers to band together to get even better pricing than they can on their own at Flash Purchase due to group purchasing power, we salute these retailers.

“Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” were defining words of Ronald Reagan’s presidency, as he challenged Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev for the reunification of East and West Berlin.
23 years later, Flash Purchase is tearing down different walls. We are tearing down the walls between consumers so they can shop together to gain group purchasing volume and prices with Flash Purchase. We are empowering consumers to do this by creating their own deals, joining others and sharing with their networks so that everyone wins with great pricing. We are also helping sellers earn large groups of consumers through a single transaction. This is win-win commerce- The Flash Purchase style.
When we work together as a group of consumers, our strength in numbers ensures the lowest prices on quality products! When we tear down the wall between buyers and sellers, prices are transparent and dynamic. This is a win-win situation for buyers and sellers so join us in our call to tear down this wall!
