Low price offer sites

What sites are you using to find low price VPS and other data offers?   Looking for new options, different providers and even non US sites.

Most the time I've just been using LEB however I've noticed recently they post offers from companies less than a week old which is ridiculous.

I've just been getting offers from hosts I already know of as of recent.

Noticed the new host problem on LEB and  I see the same old tired offers, same handful of locations/datacenters.    Quality has been lacking on LEB for a while.

We need an offers section on here :)

How do you recommend we do so? Exclusive offers that are put up by our stuff, somewhat as a blog?

I've got a little something something in the works. Won't be 'low end' specific, however. But you'll be able to list deals from low --> high, etc.

Sorry @Nick, I see the offers category.

Exclusive offers are asking a lot of work from a host.  All the setup in their billing system and writing a new ad.

The blog format is well, tired.  I rather dislike that approach.  Offer threads should be fine that accept comments.  Let providers submit them and freely post.  No reason to slap on silly stuff like some other stuff before the ad, not any value in most of that anyways.

@MannDude, that would be nice.  Sortable would be great.  That's a total new project though.  I'll look for it in the future :)

How would a directory of hosts sound?  It could include references such as recent offers, reviews, etc.. and would be a go-to place to collect information about a provider before purchasing.

It's my site, but I'm working on adding some more variety... Also if any providers want to post an offer just PM me here, or you can follow the instructions on the site (but you don't have to).

Already gets over 300 pageviews a day.

A directory that is searchable and sortable by price, features, etc. that is needed.  Probably something out there already, but low visibility.

Maybe you and serverbear could collaborate to provide integration across both sites. Would be a great partnership in my opinion.

Looking forward to see what MannDude has in the works. :) 
Right now Jarland has setup a site called MinimalVPS (refer to my sig), and a number of us (including me) are trying to fill in content for the site.

We're looking for offers to be posted there so if any providers here would like to help out in improving the site, feel free to send in an offer. :)

I don't need vps but I always check the competition and the best place to do that in my opinion is WebHostingTalk.
