i use this site alot, what i'd love to see a forum with popular products and the cheapest places

e.g:
canon 400d camera only - £369 amazon (no quidco) £50 cashback = £319.00
ipod 80gb black - £139.99 after £20 voucher @ john lewis

ETC
ETC

we could make a single thread "popular products" and have only some catagories in e.g laptops, digi cameras, printers, consoles etc so we all know where the best place is for that thread. the thread could be updated when someone posts a deal e.g £40 off code for a 360 in a seperate thread then we update this popular products thread.

what do you think?


good idea

it would be a lot quicker to find

im probably being stupid but i dont follow
EDIT: i see now, i think it could potentially make this site more user friendly, however if too many catergories are introduced it could make this site a mess to navigate. You could just use the search filter which is good when you figure out how to use it, only downside is that words have to be more than 3 letters for it to find a result.eg typing 'wii' wont work if you wanted to find wiis.

you could have say 2 threads which are made sticky's, you could fit like 50 products on each easily with the discount codes, quidco status etc, it would be alot easier than reading through loads of threads i reckon.

but these offers (quidco, vouchers etc,etc) are always changing :?

It wouldn't work. Too many glory seekers who like to see how hot their own deal will go.

Are we talking about **Supermarket** style deals? If so then bad idea as it goes out of date too quickly.

If search engines gave the same results as deals that appear here, there wouldnt be a need for HUKDs!

I think its a good idea in principal, but it just wouldnt be practical. But do think it constructive to have perhaps a couple or more seperate "hot deals" into categories. eg Groceries (all food and general supermarket items), electicals (inc consumable), general hot deals (for anything outside any given category)..... but I know that isnt going to happen. A shame really, because it would help browsing and removing the chaff people may not be interested in. I doubt there is a real status que on what the "best" way to browse is..... but its definately not very user friendly as it stands now.

erm........no, not unless ive missed something, kelkoo doesnt show any voucher codes, discounts or quidco deals

In principle it should be possible to rely upon tags to search for a specific item > e.g. all current laptop deals, etc using the front page search. It would be nice to have the option to search only Hotdeals/Freebies (+ Tags + Thread Titles) from the fronnt page. At the moment it defaults to a full forum search.

exactly!

have a single thread, it will be updated several times a day by admins to show the cheapest prices for things, have say the top 50 most popular products in the thread, ipod 80gb classic, canon 400d camera, xbox 360 premium etc.

i think it would be a great idea, especially if you have some money to burn and want to buy something on a good deal, just go down the list and choose something, especially with christmas presents to buy now.

A thread soley for supermarkets would be good too if there are great deals e.g 2*18 pack john smiths - £16 asda, BOGOF heinz beans - morrisons etc.

would make this site much easier and quicker to use.

It would be one heck of thing to maintain. People wont have the time to keep it updated thus making it outdated too quickly.

If the mods had time for all that, then while they're at it, maybe we can get the mods to pay for them and hand deliver it to the door as well. :w00t: :giggle:

now your talking, that would be great if they had the time and dont mind :thumbsup:

It would be great if there was a help section on how to submit a deal. I have tried a few times to submit a deal with links and pictures of the product but failed.
