How does Dealspotr work? Dealspotr is a community for finding and sharing deals. Our community is made up of deal hunters, couponers, and savvy shoppers who love helping people save money. On Dealspotr, you earn karma points for being a helpful member of the community, and as you build up karma you’ll earn e-gift cards along the way. Our mission is to make finding coupons and deals easier for millions of shoppers, while making it rewarding for knowledgable couponers to share great deals and advice.
How does karma work? You gain karma on Dealspotr for sharing great deals and helping the community save money. As you gain karma, you reach new levels (from Novice up to Legend), and at each level you earn an e-gift card from Amazon.com. Our karma system is designed to identify helpful actions you take on Dealspotr which assist shoppers in saving money. Key actions include posting valid, working deals, making helpful comments (explaining complex redemption rules, identifying exceptions), and referring new members. Be a positive and helpful member of our community and you’ll continue to earn karma. Keep in mind that you can also lose karma for doing anything harmdul or unhelpful to the community.
How do I post a deal? After creating your account, click on the “Post a Deal” button (available in the header as well as across the site), and post your deal there.
What kinds of deals can I post? You can post any link, code, printable, or combination thereof that provides a valid discount on a retailer’s website or in-store. Commons examples include promo codes which provide a discount when entered during checkout, sale events or links that list items discounted on a seller’s website, or printable images that offer discounts when presented in-store at the cashier. You can also post deals for specific products (called “product deals”) which should let shoppers know about a significant price discount on a given item. When posting product deals, you’ll be asked to link to the best available price on either Google or Amazon to validate that your deal is actually better than what shoppers can typically find on their own.
How much karma do I get for posting a deal? Dealspotr’s system considers many factors when you add a deal to determine how much karma you’ll earn. For posting a single deal, the karma you can earn ranges from approximately +30 karma to +460 karma. If this seems like a wide range, it is by design. Our system takes into account the type of deal you post, how much of a discount is provided, the depth of information provided in your deal posting form, as well as other factors including your overall reputation on Dealspotr (Deal Rep) and the store for which the deal is redeemable. Basically, if you are adding a high volume of relatively undifferentiated deals (e.g. everyday sales, little discount provided), you will still earn karma, but at a lower rate. If you are adding differentiated (harder to find) discounts at sought-after stores, and you’re maintaining a good reputation on Dealspotr, your per-deal earnings will be higher. Our philosophy is to reward the highest quality contributions with the most karma.
What are Trending and Popular deals? We highlight the best deals, based on community response. If more people appreciate your deal or if your deal is used by more people, it will become Trending first, then Popular. Trending deals have reached the first threshold of engagement, at which point you as the deal poster will earn +150 additional karma. Popular deals have reached the second threshold, at which point you earn +300 additional karma (for a total of +450 karma in addition to your original posting karma).
What are “bonus karma stores”? If shoppers are looking for coupons or deals for a specific store, we’ll highlight this store and offer additional karma for posting a deal to this store. By browsing the bonus karma stores list, you can find all the stores which are offering bonus karma. Typically you’ll earn between +50% and +200% additional karma for posting at these stores (1.5x to 3.0x karma). This list refreshes constantly, so you can always find new opportunities to earn bonus karma.
Can I edit or remove a deal I posted? Yes, and it’s actually quite easy. Just go to the My Posted Deals view and click the title of the deal you’d like to edit or remove. That will take you to a deal page that has an “Edit Deal” button as well as a “Mark Unavailable” button that can be used to remove the deal.
How does flagging work? Our community works together to help keep Dealspotr free of clutter and bad deals. Any member on Dealspotr can flag a deal that is invalid or does not work. You should flag deals that don’t work as described, are expired, open a broken link, or otherwise don’t belong on Dealspotr. If your deal is flagged and removed by a moderator, you may lose karma as a result. To avoid losing karma, be careful and ensure that your deal is valid and works as advertised before posting it on Dealspotr.
Do I get karma for flagging deals? Yes, you earn karma if you correctly identify a deal that does not work or is invalid and flag it. A moderator will review the deal you flagged, and when your flag is confirmed, you will receive a notification that you earned extra karma.
How much karma is needed to earn a gift card? Our rewards system is based on levels – as you earn karma, you “level up” to the next level and you earn a gift card at that point. Our levels and rewards are structured as follows:
How do I receive my gift cards? Once you reach a new level, you’ll be able to claim a gift card in your Karma & Rewards page. When you click the redeem button, our team will be notified and we’ll review your account as soon as possible. Provided you’ve followed our guidelines, your gift card will be emailed to you. This process typically takes about a week, but during peak cycles this time can increase.
What happens if I don’t redeem my gift card right away? You can accrue gift cards, and redeem them in bulk when you want. You’ll see your total redeemable gift card amount accrue in yourKarma & Rewards page.
How does the Daily Checklist work? On Dealspotr, we offer you a fun way to earn additional karma each day by completing a checklist of tasks. Every day you’ll receive a new checklist to complete with tasks such as adding specific types of deals or different ways of engaging with other members. You must complete the checklist in the day it is provided to earn the bonus karma, or else it will refresh and you’ll need to start fresh on the next day’s checklist.
Do I get karma for commenting? Deals and coupons can be complex, with store and brand exceptions, stacking rules, and unclear policies. If you come across a deal on Dealspotr that could use some clarification, make a comment that helps clear things up for shoppers. If your comment is helpful and people vote for it, you’ll earn karma.
