I'm looking for advice regarding a red dot sight for my deer gun. The catch is I'm looking to stay under $100 bucks. I understand I wont be getting top quality in that range but I'm not going to put hundreds of rounds through it, in fact once it's sighted in I'm unlikely to shoot more than a dozen rounds a year.

Anyone have any suggestions?

In that price range you want to stay away from red dots.  Aimpoint uses a special system :

Aimpoint red dot sights are the original red dot sights. Aimpoints have the widest field of view, are 100% parallax free, and are waterproof and shockproof. You do not have to center the dot; you hit where you aim. They are available in two dot sizes; 4 minute of angle (M.O.A.)= 4" @ 100 yds for precision shooting and 2 minute of angle = 2" @ 100 yds in the 2x versions. Aimpoints have no eye relief so they work on handguns, rifles, or shotguns.

Aimpoint's electronic reflex sights are manufactured using a unique patented double front lens which eliminates the parallax error inherent in other red dot sights. This feature allows the shooter to get on target more quickly and shoot more accurately, because the dot does not need to be centered inside the sight; if the dot is on it, then you will hit it.

In your price range or close to it I suggest you consider:

Thanks for the info. I'm a newb when it comes to optics so pardon this if its a dumb question... The scopes you listed are called "rifle scopes". Im going to mount them on a BPS 12 gauge. Will they still work? I should have been more clear in my orignal post that i was talking about a shotgun.

 Yes, all the scopes listed by Urimaginaryfrnd are very good choices for a shotgun shooting slugs or buckshot.
