I tried out the various tools that track these sites and found them lacking for Mac users, so I decided to develop my own solution. MacSAC is a universal app that runs on Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5. It pops a small alert panel onscreen every time a new deal is announced. If you spot a killer deal, just click in the alert panel to quickly go to the website and check it out.
In addition to tracking the current deals, MacSAC displays a history of recent deals and the "Deal of the Day" from BackcountryOutlet.com. BackcountryOutlet.com purchases made through MacSAC will benefit from a 40% discount applied when items are added to the shopping cart!
What's new in this version:
Added support for Notification Center on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Improved data handling to reduce load on merchant deal APIs (was resulting in blank deals late in the evening of 24 hour periods). Removed one inactive merchant.
