Enhancements to 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.

Click to see our Swimwear List View

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


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:

Power to Find Incredible Steals!


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!


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).


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!


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.


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!

Do You Love Coupons?


Do you LOVE coupons as much as we do?   Providing those coupon codes that you enter at checkout has always been a manual process here at AddictingDeals.com.  Merchants would email us with their current promotions, and we would add them manually, but we just couldn’t keep up…  that is until now.   I’m excited to announce that we have developed an automated process for loading all the latest coupon deals and other promotional specials from the majority of our merchants!   Simply click new coupon icon under the Home button to access all the latest coupons & specials.

AddictingDeals Loves Coupons!

You also can browse these coupons be selecting the Department of ‘Coupons & Specials’ on the left-side panel.   Or simply select ‘Coupons & Specials’ next to the Search button and search thousands of active coupons for what ever your looking for (e.g. Laptop, HDTV, Free Shipping, etc.).  It’s that EASY!  No more scouring the internet for coupon codes and landing on those shady, full-of-SPAM web-sites.  Just use AddingDeals and safely start Saving Time & Money.

AddictingDeals Loves Coupons!

Hope you LOVE coupons like we do and enjoy our premium coupon service!

Wasn’t that cheaper last week?


Have you ever been about to buy something and thought, “Wasn’t that cheaper last week?”  Most online merchants are NOT about to tell you that they recently raised the price of an item…   but we will!   We don’t want you to buy an item and then find out that the price had been recently jacked up!  AddictingDeals.com is proud to announce the addition of mini Price Trend Charts next to our prices.    Whether we’re showing a price from Amazon or Tiger Direct,  Best Buy or Sears, we’ll save the prices week-to-week and show you their price history next to the price:

AddictingDeals has added Price Trends

Click mini price trend for larger price history trend!

Also, in the Narrow Your Deals panel, you can filter to products where today’s price is UP, DOWN or the SAME as last week’s price simply by clicking a check box.   To see the previous prices, simply hover over the chart and move left and right and the Tip Text will display the historical prices. In the screen show below, you can see that the price of the wireless speaker was $119.99, but now it is $149.99.  Ouch, lets wait for that one to go back down!

AddictingDeals has added Price Trends

I think these latest enhancements will help keep you more informed so you can make wiser purchases.  So, Thanks again and keep on Saving Time & Money with AddictingDeals!

Oh, almost forgot, one more small enhancement that our fans have asked for lately has been added– the ability to  Sort by Price is now available when you are in a single specific department!

AddictingDeals has added Sort by Price

Improved Filtering


Now that AddictingDeals.com has over 750,000 deals and growing, our number of brands is naturally growing as well.  We now have over 30,000 brands!   So we’ve invested some development time to enhance our site to include more filtering options.  We hope you find these improvements make our site even more convenient and simple to use!

AddictingDeals has improved their filtering!

Also, with so many different merchants providing us with the brand names, we receive many different representations of the same brand name so we are working hard to cleanse the brand names to reduce the number of choices you have to select from.

Example of our Brand Cleansing

We also have some more exciting enhancements on the way that we are currently working on.  Thanks and keep on Saving Time & Money with AddictingDeals!
