Let's Make a Deal (often abbreviated as LMaD) was a Roblox sub-forum dedicated to discussing trades and making deals with other users. LMaD had over 37 million total posts and around 5.6 million threads. That made it the most popular forum on Roblox. Let's Make a Deal was located under the Club Houses category on the Roblox forums. Like the Clans & Guilds forum, LMaD received a heavy amount of criticism because of the fact that a large portion of its threads was off topic. The main purpose of LMaD was to buy and sell Limited and LimitedU items for the best prices possible. In Let's Make a Deal, players often used to barter and negotiate trades and the prices of the Limited and LimitedU items. After deals were negotiated, players used the Trade System to buy and sell the items. Another large item of discussion on Let's Make a Deal was players setting values for many items, both new and old. Many non-limited deals also took place in LMaD, including group selling and exchanges between items/Robux and real money, despite being against the rules.

Let's Make a Deal was seen as the driving force behind the trading economy while it was around, however many users and non-users alike often found it to be quite a toxic community. There was usually some sort of drama between users that was also made public business due to the users posting about their dislike for each other on LMaD, which also turned people away from the sub-forum.
