Punched is a flash sale website that promises to provide the best deals on products from all across the internet while offering “insane savings” along the way. Here’s our Punched review.
What is Punched?
Punched is a flash sale website located at Punched.com. The website recommends all sorts of different products you might like. The products are available at huge discounts – including deals up to 90% off their normal price.
From tech to housewares to anti-aging skin creams, Punched features a wide variety of products available for sale. Punched users can “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” certain offers to push them to the top of the website. The best deals float to the top, while the average deals sink to the bottom.
Each deal is listed with its discount, its regular price, and the number of items left before that flash sale expires. Some of the best deals run out in minutes, while others remain on the site for weeks.
One of the unique things about Punched is that there’s an element of competition: you can claim the offered coupon or punch your way to a bigger discount through the interactive “Punched” game, where you get to punch a card ten times to attempt to reveal a bigger discount.
You can sign up to the Punched newsletter to save big on all sorts of merchandise.
How Does Punched Work?
Punched works in this process:
Step 1) Sign Up and Confirm your Email: The company will immediately send you a 25% discount voucher as a reward for signing up.
Step 2) Punch Some Deals: Pick a deal from Punched.com and your Punch Card will appear. Knock that Punch Card out with your cursor, which turns into a 90s-style arcade boxing glove.
Step 3) Start Saving: You can now directly visit the purchase page of the product you selected and then enter your unique coupon code at checkout.
Before you claim a deal, you’ll want to play the Punched game, where you have 10 punches and 40 seconds to knock out a deeper discount.
Basically, this game just makes you click (with your boxing glove cursor) on a number of hidden tiles. After you punch each tile, it flips over to reveal a winner (a higher discount) or a lower discount code.
The coupons you generate are website and product-specific. You won’t be able to win a coupon code for one product from a company and then use that coupon code to take 75% off your entire shopping cart.
Types of Deals Available
Punched updates its deals on a weekly basis. If you missed one deal, then you’re encouraged to keep checking back to see if it re-appears, or to see if a better deal pops up in the future.
