Last week TeamBuy sold 5,000 Shell $25 gift cards for $12 each.
TeamBuy made 1,000 gift cards available each day releasing them at random times of the day to encourage users to check their site regularly.
Each day the Shell deal sold out within five to 10 minutes, with activity peaking at four buys per second, beating TeamBuy's previous record for a Lindt Chocolate deal which saw a high of one buy per second with 33,000 vouchers sold.
The Shell deal page received a total of 300,000 pageviews during the promotion and proved that Canadians love a deal.
In August Techvibes reported that TeamBuy rasied a $5 million funding round led by BEST Funds with participation from existing institutional investors.
The four year-old, Toronto-based company claims to be the largest daily deals site in Canada after merging with competitor Dealfind earlier this year.
