Lowering of Site Standards

38
Posted 7th Jan
What has happened to this once great site, all I'm seen lately is deal after deal of store specific Christmas reductions being posted. Out of Stock items are being posted as they "may be in store" and a number of expert seem to post anything and everything , good deals or not, Standards have certainly slipped in the past few months .

1200 degrees for 10p train tickets that hasn't gone live yet, so no one knows what dates, how many are actually available, what routes or anything. Great voting there!

Always the ones that contribute very little to the site trying to be clever
I agree, don’t forget people asking stupid questions they could google or ask the company or even worse medical questions...

hmm


Can’t be taking about
@AndyRoyd he has over 10,000 comments and is often found contributing on discussion and deals.
I preferred the glory days of over a decade ago when you could pick up misprices etc. Now it will result in thousands of orders swiftly followed by cancellations...very swiftly followed by people thinking they can say "ombudsman, ombudsman, ombudsman" and get a £500 voucher.
@oscarcat

What would like to see more of deals wise.

I think new contributors need to be encouraged but often folks are quite rude on newbies deals.

Its hard when your new to posting and then it can put you off

Those store specific deals can be absolute gems to those near by.

You can filter out local deals

You win some you lose some but you’ve got a give a shot to be in it to win it.

Yep site has took a nose dive . It's seems to be paid promotions and not actual deals .

I tried to post a deal at Asda before Xmas but it wasn't allowed because Asda is a 'banned merchant', whatever that means, so you might have noticed there haven't been any Asda deals for some time. This site has certainly gone downhill, too many bulk buy deals at Amazon which aren't a good deal at all, but voted hot by the Amazon junkies, why so many memory card deals? (if there are so many they're not really a deal). There are still good deals posted but you have to trawl through so much dross to find them.

Suspended for self promotion, not allowed as per the rules they will be back just like carparts4less and even Amazon before them.

Quite often suspended for not paying their referral fees too. It is all about the profit for this site and not the users, not knocking it that is after all the bottom line of this site profit with minimal input as in every business I suppose

More often it’s not the referral fees, Amazon for example don’t even pay them. The problem is the “partner” deals which are posted by all of the site employees except PEP. They keep telling us they are going to make it known these are partner deals but we are still waiting

asda will be back expect after they become a partner and the sites big hitter will post the first deal like they did for carparts4less

See you in July wongy


I do remember seeing 'discounted' Christmas stuff in the middle of summer once

This place sold it sole ages ago , pepper deals made it even worse and the influx of people have made it to popular which in turn has ruined it .

But saying that show me a deal site half as good as this ?

It's the same as everything, when it's unheard of it's brilliant then it slowly goes downhill and people will move on to the next thing or site.

Most users have become very toxic in the last year though.

We make no secret that the website earn money through referrals but I feel you neeed to know that we never have suspended a single merchant for not paying 'referral fees' and can I also add, based on your thinking of exactly how this site works, how does that explain that we have so many instore only deals posted.
Hotukdeals is first and foremost about Deals, and yes, great, it earns money through some of them but there really is no big conspiracy. Sorry to disappoint.

Do you have any idea how many towns and cities there are in the UK? Just a quick google search shows there are 91 large towns with a population above 75,000, 347 medium-sized towns with a population between 20,000 and 75,000, and 748 small towns with a population between 5,000 and 20,000.

You don't have a cat in hells chance of a decent deal popping up near you. Why the hell are these local goose chase "Deals" regularly getting over 1000 heat? I agree with the poster. this site is now a bit of a joke.

15. They sent a sewer down to stitch a tear in the sewer line.
16. To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

Are you codding, or was that a red herring?

Two parrots were sat on a perch.
One turns to the other & says, "Do you smell fish?".

Too soon? Right plaice; wrong time.

Smelling pistakes keep me busy.

I did not think there was a big conspiracy, but after your defensive interjection I do (winky face disclaimer meaning humor, or is it a double bluff )
