What is Dealspotr?
@dealspotr posted this article
Since launching in late 2015, we've saved shoppers over $15 million. How? We've not only created the most advanced real-time deal sharing platform on the internet, we also reward our members for posting only accurate deals, coupons, and promo codes. The result is an incredibly accurate database of over 5 million deals, creating a Google-like experience for finding a deal for anything, anytime.
Like Google for deals
Google is amazingly good at finding you the web page you want. Our goal with Dealspotr is to bring you that same experience, but for deals. There are tons of deals posted on the internet everyday, but they are disorganized, posted on thousands of sites, they expire quickly, have fine print and exclusions - the bottom line is it's hard to find the exact deal for something, when you want it. With Dealspotr, we're tackling the ambitious goal of creating a complete and up-to-date database of all the best deals online, everyday. This means Dealspotr contains and organizes information about tens of thousands of new deals everyday, and we keep that information updated in real-time.
Crowdsourced and community-based
The engine behind Dealspotr is our community. We're a crowdsourcing platform, so like Wikipedia, Reddit, or Airbnb, anyone can post, edit, and curate the deals you see on our site. Our members are deal hunters, couponers, frugal lifestyle bloggers, and shoppers just like you. We all work together to make Dealspotr the best place to find deals, so we can help more people save more money.
Gamified, and social
Dealspotr is a great place to connect with other people who love deals. Posting deals with us is just plain fun, some may even call it addictive - you earn points, build reputation, have daily tasks to complete, and more. Post deals that other members like and your deals can go Hot or On Fire, earning you reputation for being a top deal spotter.
One important way we're different from other deal sites is that we reward you for contributing to the community. Why share deals for free on other sites, when you can earn extra shopping money on Dealspotr? If you're tired of completing surveys for pennies, try sharing deals on Dealspotr, you can earn rewards faster, and you're directly helping other people save money at the same time. Also, if you're a blogger or social media influencer, you can collaborate with us through our Influencer Network and get access to paid projects and cross promotional opportunities.
