Introducing our first edition of Slickdeals Wins, a roundup from the Slickdeals team to loop you in on our cool new features, projects, and tests! We’re always working on new ways to improve your experience. 

Voting on Deals, Made Easy!

On Slickdeals, our skilled editors and online community share and vet each deal. Your votes are what uphold the Slickdeals quality standard and make the experience better for everyone. 

For most Slickdealers using a desktop browser, we’re placing the upvote/downvote buttons more prominently on deal pages. Previously, these buttons were underneath the product description and much less visible on a browser. No more scrolling all the way down to leave your input!

Celebrating Comment Creativity! 

We constantly look for ways to reward the community for their contributions. This month, we selected and published 25 staff favorites. The picks all received a $5 Amazon Gift card.

Slickdeals comment

Slickdealers are experts at the most surprising things. Above, wuss tries all the showerheads so you don’t have to.

Next time you have a point of view, whether it’s an opinion about the product, a happy or cautionary tale about a merchant or service you got, or just a feel-good story, don’t hesitate to respond. We will keep running more of these regularly, too!

You can check out all the winners in this post.

Enhancing the Deal Alert Experience!

The best deals go quickly, so the most successful Slickdealers set deal alerts to stay ahead of the game. We’re now upgrading our deal alert-triggered emails to make deal alerts an even more effective dealhunting strategy.

Once you set a deal alert, you’ll receive emails that show both current matches and related deals. For example, if you set alerts for “hair oil” and “wavy hair care,” you might see additional, relevant deals on hair tools, hair masks, and hair ties.

Triggered Deal Alert Email

By receiving a broader range of personalized deals, you’ll stay on top of deals for the products you want (and get a head start on deals you didn’t know you needed!)

Never miss another deal–set a deal alert here.

Shaping the Future of Slickdeals!

This month, we launched an Ambassador program to establish a closer connection with select users based on account age, participation level, and amount of feedback they’ve provided to us. Ambassadors will preview early features/functionality, including conceptual alpha/beta state ideas, and provide feedback before wider release to all Slickdealers.

We had a first call with a few of the members of the Ambassador program via Zoom. Our discussion topics ranged from the upcoming mobile app (really early alpha) to potential changes in site/moderation policies to our favorite merchants and deals, as well as the recent Staff Picks contest.

Ambassadors also get freebies, like this Slickdeals sticker and more!

We would love for you to join the ambassador program, but you don’t need to be an ambassador to let us know your thoughts! If you have any feedback, please continue to use Site Questions, Issues & Suggestions Forum. If you are interested in joining the Ambassador program, send a PM to redsolar on Slickdeals.
