it seems to be SD's redirection that causes it to not work

Do you get an error message? The link seems to be unaffected by our redirect in any way. Never mind that, looking into it

Found the reason why it's not working. It's iOS 9 ad blocking. When I turn it off, the link works. But whitelisting SD does not work.

Your issue isn't quite the same as in this thread, but hopefully below information will help you resolve it.

That's mainly because we are not the ones that are on the block list. It's the redirect networks that are, so whitelisting us (slickdeals) does not help. You could try whitelisting some of the links listed in the last bullet here http://slickdeals.net/forums/faq.php?faq=sd_faq_item#faq_faq and see if it helps. You can safely ignore doubleclick links, they are no longer relevant for redirect.


There are multiple adblockers for iOS 9, and I would advise for you to try a different one if you have a chance to do that. Some of them are too aggressive, and block anything and everything that has to do with marketing, not just banner ads, which is what I presume you are after with an ad blocking solution.
