Welcome back! I hope you have all had a great month so far. So today is a slightly different type of review!. Today I will be reviewing a website called Dealspotr.
I love a good bargain and I am slowly turning in to a coupon lady but gone are the days where you cut coupons out of magazines and take them in to the shop. Nowadays, as most things are, it is all done online.
How it works
You have to sign up but it really isn’t difficult or time consuming to do. You can choose what topics you prefer, such as food, beauty, DIY and crafts etc (maximum 4 topics) and as you can do on a lot of influence platforms, you can link to all your social media accounts.
To start with you have a chance to gain quite a few points. You gain points for linking to and confirming your blog by adding a badge and you receive a points for the first list of tasks you complete. Each day after this, you have a set amount of tasks to complete. If all daily tasks are completed you are given 200 points. Once you have reached 10,00 points for the first time this entitles you to a $10 Amazon gift card. Once this has been claimed the target changes to 20,000 in order to gain your next Gift Card.
On your profile you have a dashboard Where you can view all your notifications, actions taken and what points you received for each action. There is also a progression bar, which shows you how close you are to receiving your next Amazon voucher.
There are so many tools available to help you including an forums where you can interact with other influences, find answers to questions you have and share your favourite deals.
There are different influencer levels and full details of what is required for each level is listed under the “influencer tools” section of your account so you can always see what you have completed and what is left to complete to reach each level.
How it differs from other sites
As I have said I like to find good deals and when I search on google for coupons I always find that I am sent to expired deals, or those websites that clearly just get paid for the amount of traffic that goes through the site, the coupons don’t work or take you to a spam site. It gets tiring after a while and I used to just give up on trying to find good deals, whereas now I log on to one site and I can just search on a trusted site.
- Easy to navigate the website
- great incentive – with a bit of effort you can make a decent amount of extra cash from it.
- You can follow people who have posted deals you trust and have validated.
- You can share deals across all social media platforms.
- I haven’t come across a deal that doesn’t work yet or has expired before the date advised.
- You don’t have to be the highest level influencer to Receive the best deals.
- It is all in dollars – can only use the Gift Cards on Amazon.com
- Can be difficult to find UK deals
- Cannot withdraw funds to PayPal until you are a Trusted Influencer.
- If your deal isn’t accurate you lose marks (anything below -20 means you can no longer post deals or validate others)
- Not as many UK deals.
Overall I think Dealspotr is a great idea. If you are the type of person who has the patience to go looking for good deals and great ways to save money this a great site that has a wide range of products at your finger tips. All you have to do is sit down and take the time to look.
As a person who posts deals I do think the validation process is quite harsh at times if I am honest. You do get told why your deal has lost points when your deal is being validated, however, personally I think if the deal works those points shouldn’t be taken off you. For example, I lost accuracy points because of a typo ( I wrote os instead of is on one of my deals) and on the other it stated I had omitted some information, however when checking the deal I couldn’t find any information that had been omitted. You do need to ensure you thoroughly check your deals before submitting them to avoid losing these points.
In my cons section I did put that there weren’t many UK deals, which is true but I do feel the more this is advertised in the UK and the more influencers we can get using this website, the bigger and better it will become for providing deals in the UK. The reason why this is a con for me is because so many companies either don’t ship to the UK or charge high shipping prices to do so. In addition the likelihood is you will be hit with a big customs charge on top of shipping when it arrives in the UK, which defeats the object of having a deal 🙂
I would always recommend you do fully read the rules and guidelines. I know that this can be tedious and nobody likes rules but I do feel this is hugely important to ensure that you can get the best out of the website. They are easy to read and follow so just take the time to read them.
You do have to spend a bit of time adding your deals but it is worth it because at the end of the day you are getting paid to share your deals and Dealspotr is the only website that offers this to their members.
What sites do you use to get great deals and coupons??
