yes so all electricals like dishwashers etc go in OTHER DEALS section

but they wont put OTHER DEALS On the main page

you have to customise your view EVERY time you want to see this section, then change it back!

hence why toasters etc are appearing under AV now else no-one would see the deal lol

you really couldnt make it up!

Do you filter when you use online retailers? Or just read all the contents no matter what it throws at you? If you were looking for a new kitchen appliances, why would you want to view "all"? Yes, you can use search, but we all know its pretty dire and wouldnt show anything if there was a speeling misteak.

There is an easy fix here. Just a shame the owner is too stubborn to admit he's got it wrong.

Use the search function. Tbh its NO big deal - its a website and something like this doesnt bother me


lol just seen your "speeling misteak"!!

and dont get me started on the sort order of the search. It sort of shows the mindset of the developers when they think bringing back deals 8 months old first is the way to go!

It's just the way I do it I flick through a couple of pages of deals to see if there is anything I need. I only use three of the links on the "Forums" bar too, Deals, Freebies and Misc. I can't be bothered with all the rest on either bar.

Deals are posted on the merit of the product/price and in the majority by members - It's not at all related to deals which offer earning potential.

I'm not sure I understand your last bit.I thought the vast majority of deals posted on here would earn money for the owners every time an item from one was purchased.That is what I thought the whole point of this site is about.Have I got that wrong somehow?




From the About Us Section:

How HotUKDeals is fundedWe don't run banner ads on the site, sell ad … How HotUKDeals is fundedWe don't run banner ads on the site, sell ad space, use your email address for marketing or sell your details to other parties. We keep the site funded and running by using commission links on merchants where HUKD receives a commission if a product is purchased. As members submit and vote on deals we believe this keeps the site unbiased but if you have concerns please post and discuss them with us and other members in the Feedback section.



So whilst we may receive funding as a result of commission from some merchants, this has no bearing on the criteria for posting a deal. We simply ask that the best deals are listed for the benefit of the members. The site has always aimed to be very clear with regards to criteria for listing deals.

Yeah I understand how it makes its money, but at the end of the day that doesn't bother me.

My aim for using this site is that I save money when buying a certain product. As long as I'm getting the best deal for myself I dont really care how the site makes its money.

Think this is the third.. or is it fourth incarnation I can recall. Wouldnt worry.. you will all get used to it.
