- Location of deals
Dealspotr is a unique company that offers not only one service to members but many by the ability to connect through online coupon deals. However, the company does have a few shortcomings that should be noted for potential members.
As mentioned before, Dealspotr is a new company that has only been around for a few short months. Although this is not an inconvenience to members, it is worth knowing to show that the company does not have the experience and background that other companies might possess. In addition, because Dealspotr has only been in business a few short months, they show very limited information about the background of the company. Based in California, the company is run by ZipfWorks Inc. but an official start date is unknown as well as any other information about the base of the company.
Most of the companies that Dealspotr regularly has coupons for can be found nationally. The most popular stores include Target, Walmart, Starbucks, BestBuy, Kohl's and Macy's. This is a great benefit to members nationwide, however, the down side is that Dealspotr is not known for their local deals. To best help members, a coupon site should allow both national and local deals. This might be due to the fact that the company is so new and further down the road there is definitely potential for Dealspotr to branch into this online deal niche as well. Currently, however, Dealspotr only promotes stores that can be found in most locations across country.
The Bottom Line
Dealspotr is a new company that has seen great progress in the few short months since they launched. Their service is similar to a social network which offer members to join for free and to connect through coupons and online deals. Members are given the opportunity to share deals with others and to earn points through the Karma Point system to earn e-gift cards as a reward for participating in the community. The deals that are posted have a wide range of discounts but on average deals can be found on Dealspotr for around 20 percent off. They offer twelve different category selections all of which have stores and name brands that are located nationally. However, this means that Dealspotr is not yet an online coupon hub for members to find any local deals.
