I was not aware of this, I can understand that for a website to keep going it needs funding, but are any other members aware of HUKDs lack of transparancy? This makes interesting reading I have just found over at Moneysavingexpert.http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.html?t=416684
"Some of you might know of the hotuk deals website some might not ..anyway I suggest that you should be aware that the website uses referrer links just like Quidco and Martins site, the difference being Quidco, will give you something back if you use their links, they are fairly transparent in their operation, Martins site is transparent in that he will use it to maintain this site.
Hotuk deals however does not give you anything in return and in fact has cleverly hidden their referrel links within their 'go to deal' button. YOU WONT KNOW BECAUSE IT DOESNT SHOW when you click their button/links, I know because I was checking their website out because I got a little suspicious... [note: not all of their links are referrel links btw] .
So if you want to benefit from your purchases I would suggest you go through Quidco or other such websites that offer you something in return rather than using hotuk deals links. If youre feeling altruistic then use Martins links.
I so dislike the lack of transparency of HotUKDeals, at least Martin has been upfront!"
Are any posters out there aware that HUKD is hiding referral links behind the deal button when you submit a deal? Does anyone know if this is true?
