Your opinion on DealNews needed

Update: feedback gathered, verdict announced. Please read the DealNews review to find the outcome of my research.

DealNews logoIt is time for my next bargain site of the week review and I decided to take a different route this time. I am going to write about DealNews this week, but before I do so I want to hear your opinion about the website and the people behind it. What do you know about it — the good, the bad, and the ugly.

I would really like to hear both sides of the story, from people using it for bargain hunting as well as from competitors or anyone active in affiliate marketing. The owners are welcome to comment as well — it is an open discussion.

One thing I heard and want to confirm is that DealNews can be very pushy with newsletters and follow up emails, and it can be hard to opt out. Is this really so?

Send me your thoughts by email or just leave them as comments to this post. I will incorporate them into my DealNews review next week.

    I have not shopped using, but I have spent some time looking around the site. It is certainly an attractive site, very informative, and geared mostly toward techies. Not that there is a problem with that; I just don’t shop online for tech stuff. (I can’t respond to the comment about being hard to opt-out as I have never joined their feed.)

    I’m more into shopping for clothing, accessories, kids’ stuff and gifts online, so I use other sites. My favorite is I have started doing some marketing work for them, too, and would invite you to check them out in a future review.

    Thanks… and I’m anxious to read your review of
