AddictingDeals.com

Here’s just a quick post to tell you about the latest enhancements to AddictingDeals.com.   The Department menu is now conveniently hidden until you need it.  Just hover your mouse over the ‘See All Departments‘ button and the Department Menu will appear for you to make a selection.  See the image below.

Also, we now support a choice of List View or Grid View when browsing our product information.   The image below shows the List View which is the “classic” view that we have always had.  It has 1 item per row and full product information is displayed beside each item.

The new Grid View shows larger images with 3 items per rows; however, there is less product information displayed in this view.   The Grid View is the new default view but you can change the view with the List and Grid buttons (below the search).   To see the product information that is missing in the Grid View, simply hover your mouse over the item image and you will see a Quick Look button appear.

Click to see our Swimwear Grid View

Clicking on the Quick Look button will display the missing product information and provide the ability to view the price history chart (if available) for that item and/or search for store coupons that could save you additional money.  You can see and example of the Quick Look below.

New Flash Sales at AddictingDeals

AddictingDeals.com

Recently growing at a nearly exponential rate, “Flash Sales” have quickly become one of the fastest growing and most entertaining areas of retailing today. But you’ve got to be ready to move fast. In this rollercoaster world of hot bargains and super-low prices, huge discounts of 30%, 50% or even more can appear and then disappear faster than an old-fashioned brick-and-mortar retailer can find you a shopping cart.

Now on AddictingDeals.com, you’ll always find “Flash Sales” going on! Simply click the red “Flash Sales” icon in the upper left-hand corner of AddictingDeals.com to get started as shown below.

Flash Sales at AddictingDeals.com

AddictingDeals now specializes in these limited-time “Flash Sales” that let consumers save as much as 80% on a wide variety of popular products. Every day, we add eight to ten new products to our website, AddictingDeals.com. Like our other “Flash Sale” products on the site, these new items are offered at a rock-bottom price – but for a very limited time only (usually about a week).

I can show you a couple examples of big savings using our “Flash Sales” below; however, these links won’t work for long because these flash sales come and go fast!  Click the images to see if the sales are still around.  If not, click the red “Flash Sales” icon in the upper left-hand corner of AddictingDeals.com to see the latest flash sales.

Flash Sale Example – 80% OFF:

FlashSale Example 1 - Won't last long!

Flash Sale Example – 53% OFF:

Browser Back Button & Bookmarking Support

AddictingDeals.com

Back Button:

In the past, if you loaded AddictingDeals.com, looked at some TVs, computers and finally clothes, and then you pressed the browser’s back button, you would leave AddictingDeals and go to the previous website in your browser’s history.  So unexpected!  Well after a couple of weeks of major software modifications, this behavior has finally been corrected!  Now when you load AddictingDeals and use the back button, it will take you back to the previous thing you were doing at AddictingDeals. This was particularly tricky because, for performance reasons, AddictingDeals never really loads any new pages in their entirety, it just quickly modifies a portion of the page you are looking at based on your actions.  So the back button needed to be programmed to undo your last actions incrementally before leaving AddictingDeals and going to the previous website in your browser’s history.  Now it does that so I hope it behaves as you would expect it to.

Bookmarking: 

Keeping track of all your steps to make the back button work properly was done by capturing your action details in the URL  (displayed at the top of most browsers).   This change happened to also enable very specific bookmarking (or saving as a Favorite) from anywhere within AddictingDeals. In the past, if you navigated to a favorite category and selected a favorite brand, and then you bookmarked the page, the bookmark would just return you to the home page. What a bummer! Now that problem has been fixed and bookmarks will return you to the specific page with the same actions applied you had enabled when you saved the bookmark. Please give me just one more minute of your time to point out an example of how this could be very useful to you before I end this post.  Suppose you are waiting for a great deal on a TV.  You go to AddictingDeals.com and 1) you search for “55 TV” and  you choose Flat Panel TV, 2) you enable the brand of “Samsung” (or your favorite brand) and 3) you click “Down from last week” because you want a price drop, and 4) you enter a max price of 1500 because that’s all you are willing to pay.   Now you can simply bookmark this page (or save it as a Favorite) and perform all these actions at once simply by using the bookmark.  You could check it  everyday with just one click on the bookmark.

Power to Find Incredible Steals!

AddictingDeals.com

Last night (4/28/13) we completed another enhancement that absolutely will give you the power to find incredible steals even when the merchants and AddictingDeals may NOT have highlighted the deal on their featured products page.   If you love to find steals on your own, keep reading this post to see how our advanced targeting software can get you on track to the best deals!  We have not yet seen this capability on any other website and as always we provide it for FREE.  So give it a try!

AddictingDealsOnTrackAd500px

So just how do you use this new capability to find the latest steals?

Step 1:

First, start browsing for the product you desire, let’s say you want a new TV.  From the Department menu on the left, select Electronics  >  Video & TV  >  Flat Panel TV.     Now you should be browsing over 2200 HDTVs from a variety of merchants (or you could search for something else you want).

Step 2:

Click the check box in the upper left that is labeled ‘Down from last week‘ as shown below.  In our HDTV example this reduces us from over 2200 TVs to 205 that have today’s price reduced down compared to last week’s price (as you can see in the mini price trends next to the prices).

Down

Step 3:

Our powerful NEW enhancement allows you to specify the PERCENT SAVINGS that you want to find.  Previously, this option used to show products with ANY savings compared to last week even if it was just a few pennies, but now it defaults to savings of at least 1% and lets you adjust it.  Let’s change the percent to 15% and click the Apply button as shown below.   In our TV example, this reduces the results to 39 incredible steals!

Down15

Step 4:

Finally, click on one of the mini price trends to view the larger price trend.   As part of this enhancement, we added the percent savings compared to last week right in the chart title (they will all be 15% or more because we specified 15%).  And as before, you can hover your mouse pointer over each of the data points on the large (or the mini) price trends to see the price that was in effect each week.

Down18

This is just another great FREE service brought to you by AddictingDeals!

We continue to provide features like this that you cannot find anywhere else.   We hope you enjoy this powerful new enhancement that will allow you to start Saving Time & Money today!
