Looks like ‘Daily Deals’ site for college students just bought for $7,000


It looks like the privately held marketing business “U Scoop”, which offers students up to 70% off cool new brands and the best things to do, eat, and see in their college towns, has purchased the domain name for $7,000 USD at Sedo’s GreatDomains. 

Obviously, it’s just a guess since the domain name is still in Sedo’s transfer service, but if you visit U Scoop’s web site (, the company which was founded in 2010 and has 6 employees (according to its LinkedIn profile), is planning to unveil its web site soon.

Maybe all the company was waiting for was the right domain name to launch their web site?


Of course, I could be wrong. owns the domain name, but the domain name doesn’t resolve.  Last week, PokerStars kicked off its USCOOP event (as in The United States Championship of Online Poker). 

However, PokerStars refers to the event officially as USA COOP, so my bet is still on U Scoop as the new owner of the name.

With the momentum of group buying in their favor, and college students always looking for bargains, targeting the niche college market seems like a really good idea.

I signed up for the U Scoop newsletter and just received an email.  Here’s what it said:

Each day our team scours campuses nationwide and surfs hundreds of websites to find the coolest products, fads, and services to keep you entertained.
But rather than just write about the daily finds, we give you a reason to try them by offering a 24 hour deal at up to 50% off.
And if that doesn’t do it for you, hopefully campus fads, pimped out dorm rooms, and pre-game playlists will do the trick.
In the mean time, we’ll keep lining up the deals while you start lining up your friends. Sound good?

Professional Poker Player Dutch Boyd Gets Back to Poker, Blogging and …Domain Names

Dutch Boyd Blog

WSOP Bracelet Winner Dutch Boyd returned to one of his favorite past times on his personal blog: domain names. 

Dutch Boyd began the month of May with a new website look on  The website title even has the word “Domainer” added and reads “A professional poker player and domainer”.  The website redesign while simple and clean, introduces readers to the thrilling adventures of a professional poker player who is also a domainer – a phrase many of his site’s visitors may have no idea about. 

Readers scouring his blog though, will certainly be surprised to learn he discusses domain names as much as he discusses his poker career. Though his blog has gone quiet the last couple weeks, his two most recent entries discuss two of his domain names – one that he put up for auction and the other, a hand-registered domain name which he built into a Q&A website.

The name Dutch put up for auction was, which sold on May 12 through Sedo for $700. is the name he registered months earlier after it had expired.  The website now provides answers to frequently asked questions by would-be visitors to Las Vegas.

As much a Domainer as he is a Poker Player
Dutch owns domains like and and had described plans in August 2009 for unveiling a Domain Registration service through his GoDaddy affiliate account on, but the “Under Construction” page hasn’t changed since then.

Dutch Boyd has been the subject of several stories here on Fusible and having domainers who get  media attention helps bring more attention to the domain industry, which is a good thing.

From Dutch Boyd’s Blog Bio

I’m a Vegas pro poker player. A part-time domainer. And the greatest Photo Hunt player to have ever lived. I am recovering from a nasty cigarette addiction that I gave up when I discovered that smoking causes cancer. They knew it all along. I drink Cherry Zero ™ now instead of Pepsi because I don’t want the calories. I am the 2nd youngest law school graduate ever. I am a Blood Elf Rogue. I lived every poker player’s dream by winning my World Series of Poker bracelet in 2006, going headsup against the then reigning world champion Joe Hachem… all in front of the ESPN cameras.

I am just like you. I put my pants on one leg at a time. Except after I do that I crush souls at the poker table.

I live in Vegas with my beautiful girlfriend Michele and our two puppies… a shipoo named June and a puggle named Stuey Ungar. Just a 29/m playing through life trying to make the right moves.
