SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Finding that working promo code when you need it can be hard. Expired codes, invalid coupons, and hard-to-read exclusions typify the current coupon hunting experience. Enter Dealspotr, a completely community-driven website that rewards its members with Amazon gift cards for helping other members find and redeem working coupons and codes. In essence, the site employs crowdsourcing at a massive scale to provide the most accurate and up-to-date database of promo codes and deals for every major retailer worldwide.
"We believe that the only way to tackle the huge challenge of maintaining real-time updated information on millions of coupons for thousands of brands across the globe is to tap into the power of our community of users," said founder and CEO Michael Quoc. "Additionally, we're excited to create a real and lasting partnership with our user community by rewarding them for the time they invest in making Dealspotr the most complete and reliable coupon database in the world."
Anyone can sign up for a free account at http://dealspotr.com. Members collect Karma points for helping the community discover the best deals everyday. Karma points are redeemable for e-gift cards at Amazon.com.
Examples of community actions include:
- Sharing working coupon codes or information about the latest deals or sales at any retailer
- Curating coupons on the site by upvoting and downvoting to identify the best deals and remove bad ones
- Making helpful replies to assist other members in successfully redeeming coupons
- Referring new members who become helpful members of the Dealspotr community
Members are provided with a convenient Dashboard to track their Karma-earning activities. The site also features a leaderboard where users can see other members who are achieving new levels and earning new rewards. The goal of the site is to make it simple and fun to engage in discussion about the latest deals while building up Karma and earning rewards.
"We're different from other coupon sites in that we're built as a social app first, backed by a rewards system." Quoc continued. "We have a long term vision to build a social network similar to Twitter or Facebook, but centered around deals and saving money. Of course, we'll also be unique in that our members will earn rewards for participating on Dealspotr. We're still early in our development with many exciting new features to come, but so far, our members are tremendously excited with our direction and where we're headed."
Dealspotr's new rewards program is currently available in beta at http://dealspotr.com.
