Just points I suppose. And the fact that you've shared a good deal and get feedback.

A good feeling
If you have to ask what you get out of it, then you really shouldn't bother posting any deals.
Opinions..... A lot of them depending what the deal is about.

Sarcasm, criticism and you find out who are the 'fanboys'.
Heat, and a good karma that you’ve given to the Hukd community
Why do you need to get something out of posting a deal on here?

I don't post many deals on here, but when i do it's because others have been good enough to post deals that i've been lucky enough to take advantage of, so i just give back to the community.

Never understood the fascination with badges. The feedback section is full of users moaning about why they haven't received a silver 🌟 or a gold🏅 for one reason or another!

And they get really stroppy angry!
A nice warm feeling and butterflies 🦋
Iv felt the same as you and so have others.
We dont get anything unless it's a bargin given from the community.
The site owners are winner and they hardly post deals such as the admin I mean.
Mrswitch and chancci are the best ones I love. They need to take over

Well in general I get them deleted so don't bother any more :-)
Don’t forget you also have ask where you posted this and that allows any questions and I mean any questions which will normally get answers for you. Also a place to chat in misc but not as much chat as it used to be.
i don't understand the mentality of people who begrudges other people making a profit. i don't see anything wrong for the owners of the site making money, the more they make the better, as without profit, who do you think is going to maintain and run this site? everything costs money to keep going and if there is no great profit, the owners will not bother to run this business.

as members we may not make hard cash from the site, like the cashback sites, but we benefit from having a platform that is maintained and offered to us to use for free, so although we do not make hard cash, we make savings, which is just the same. the money they make do not come out of our personal pockets so why does it matter that it comes out of the retailers pockets?

take the benefit of the site as it was designed to be and be glad that it exists to allow us to share bargains and help each other. i personally do not think the owners of hukd are greedy as some of the comments state, and in fact it is the members that are greedy if they want to make money from the site, which has never been designed to pay members for posting deals.

Erm. Yes it does come out of our pockets. We make the purchase and then HUKDs gets a portion of what we’re paying the retailer.

This site works similar to how Topcashback works. When you go through their website, they take a portion of the money you are paying the retailer to pocket for themselves. They give you a portion back though as cashback. They also run regular bonus cashback offers for us to make more back. Here, we get a few competitions.

@Chanchi32 is the one that saves/makes me the most money on here

i do it for the hot chicks
Simples , I sometimes save money by buying an item I see on here that another member has posted , happy times I’ve saved some money . To pay it forward when I see a particularly good deal I post if for someone else to benefit from .

If you are just a taking kind of person , you would just lurk and use the deals without giving back.

You can use the site as a test of your personal ethics in life

Pretty much if you don’t want HUKDs to get the money.

I think people like @Chanchi32 , @BuzzDuraband etc deserve money back though, as they have contributed loads prior to working for HUKDs. Lots more do too but I’m too lazy to post the names right now.

the way the site makes money is the same for hukd as for TCB, but the platform is completely different. the hukd platform is more complex as it hosts posts of deals from members as well as have sections such as ASK and MISC. there are also employees employed at hukd to police the site (which in my opinion could be improved!) so the cost of running and maintaining a platform like hukd is much more expensive than one like TCB or Quidco, which is simply a link platform and does not do any hosting.

so i don't begrudge the owners making a profit as they need to to make money somehow to keep this site going and we do get paid as we do when we use TCB or Quidco, we just get paid in a different way, which is fine by me, that is we get paid from the savings we make. the money that comes out of our pocket to make the purchases would be a lot more if this site does not exist.

the amount that i have saved over the years from this site is huge and i am not even a big spender. for those that spend a lot, the savings from this site would be significant.

You can’t say one is more expensive to run than the other. You don’t know how many Customer Service reps that TCB/Quidco employ to know about such costs. Same as we don’t know how many truly work at HUKDs.

The point is, it does come out of our money every time we buy something through this site. TCB/Quidco give us a cut of their cut. HUKDs does not. I can see why that annoys some people and with the lack of gratitude some show here to deal posters, I can see why they think “what’s the point”.

I’m not against the staff getting paid here as they do provide a platform for a collection of deals to be easily found. Most were regular deal posters here too before becoming staff.

Saving money isn’t us getting paid though. That’s some politician like spin. The deals are still there on the different websites. It’s not like HUKDs puts them there is it? Without HUKDs, they’d still exist. You’d just have to make more of an effort to shop around.

I have bought bargains that I did not know I even needed until I saw them flagged up on here then discovered that I actually did need them, I just didn't know it. I also find the comments on the deals very helpful on hukd as often they give insight into the item and you can ask about the item in question within the thread.

I particularly like the heat vote system. I know it is not perfect but I find it a good indicator to flag up that something is a bargain.

HUKD is unique and it does provide something different to other sites, which is why it is so addictive as this site is by far the one that I spend the most time on, whether I buy anything or not, it is like window shopping from your sofa with entertainment thrown in for the bargain
