The daily deals idea is great but I'd prefer to get either an email notification that I could opt-in to or an RSS feed that I could subscribe to. I already receive emails from a bunch of other daily deals sites and I've got it organised in a way that is easy to sift through.

The twitter and facebook notification is great but so much other stuff is posted through there as well.

Subscribing to the Announcements feed (http://store.steampowered.com/news/?feed=steam_announce), you'll see all the deals as they announce them.

Also, you could use third party websites (http://www.steamgamesales.com) that aggregate the deals for you and they often serve their RSS feed to you as well.

Last, there's the more intrusive notification they're using with the Steam News, when you login, or after you quit a game in progress.

I've set up an RSS feed here (http://feeds.feedburner.com/steamdailydeals) for anyone that wants to see Daily Deals when they come out.

You can also subscribe to the emailing list (Get an email once the RSS feed updates with new Daily Deals) here (http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=steamdailydeals&loc=en_US).

I would like to get a Steam pop up each day notifying me of the deal.

This has been done by Steam now :)
