  • This week Aldi have Monteith’s Summer Ale for just $24.95 for 12 – a bargain for a top notch summer beer. And also a prosecco in a gorgeously tacky all-gold bottle for $14.99 (Yes, I bought both)

  • Can you please stop referring to Wednesday as “hump day”. It’s a stupid Seppoism that needs to die.

  • While I really like this listing, and will usually hat least have a look at one or two things on the list, is it possible to split this into new deals, and ongoing deals?

    I don’t know how many times I haven’t clicked on the same entry for WindowsDeals or Udemy.

    • Thanks for your feedback, sethaan. We repeat deals that are still going, as most readers don’t click on Hump Day Deals every week and may miss out otherwise.

      While the wording is the same, the WindowsDeals and Udemy deals are actually different each week.
