GottaDEAL FAQ

  Posted on June 5, 2023 by GottaDEAL Staff

General Questions

  • Where do our deals come from?
    Every single deal you see posted on our site was found and posted by an actual person. Our team of deal editors has decades of experience with online deals, going back to the glory days of late 1990s e-commerce. Unlike some other sites, we do not use bots or deal feeds to populate our site with deals.
  • How long do deals last? Why is this deal no longer available?
    Every day lasts a different amount of time. We typically will keep the last 24 hours of deals updated and delete any deals that have expired or have had prices increase significantly. If you come across an older deal and find it has expired, you can feel free to contact us and we'll hide it from the site.
  • Can I submit a deal to get posted on the site?
    Yes, you can use the contact form to submit a deal or sale to be posted. If we think your submission is worthy, it may appear on the site. Note that if you'd like to advertise your site or product, you can also do that via the contact form.

Site Questions

  • What are the different parts of the site?
    You'll see our main menu in orange above that has several links. "Deals" takes you to all the deals we've been posting. "Offers" shows you discounts, coupons, offers and promotions from your favorite retailers. "Stores" shows you a directory of the stores we focus on. Click the name of the store under the logo and you'll find a store info page with all kinds of great information. "Alerts" lets you sign up for our deal newsletter. "Forum" takes you to our message boards.
  • Can I sort deals in different ways?
    Yes, at the top of the home page you'll see a button to sort the deals on this page either by newest or hotness. Newest is self explanatory - new deals will be at the top. Sorting by hotness looks at how often these deals are getting clicked by our readers and shows them in order of popularity.
  • Does GottaDEAL make money from the links on the site?
    At GottaDEAL, we believe in transparency and want to ensure that our readers are aware of the affiliate partnerships we have in place. In some instances, we may include affiliate links within our website content. This means that when you click on certain links and make a purchase, we may earn a commission at no additional cost to you.

Black Friday Questions

  • What happened to the dedicated Black Friday site?
    As Black Friday itself has become less important, we have responded by combining both parts of the site into one mega-site. We'll still have all the Black Friday ads posted (look for the "Sales" link on the main navigation menu. The "Black Friday" option on the menu takes you to a page with the latest Black Friday and holiday sale updates, essentially the same as the old Black Friday site home page.
  • How can I get notified when new leaked ads are posted?
    The best way is to sign up for our newsletter. You can also follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Bluesky. You can also join our Discord server. We'll post updates in all these places and of course you can just bookmark the site and visit often to see the latest updates.
  • Where can I discuss Black Friday and holiday sales?
    We still have our Black Friday forum available year-round to chat about Black Friday, retail industry news and the other holiday shopping season sales, news and updates. We also have a dedicated #blackfriday channel on our Discord chat server where you can also discuss Black Friday all year long.
For answers to any other questions you may have, just send us a message.
