Hi,
I am glad that you enjoy them when we're able to provide them.
Sorry that we don't manage to have one every day.

We all love them so much, been a slow month for SD sponsored contests for sure. hug Also saddened we didn't see a black friday promo this year--all about cars and cash and superbowl.

Well we did give away three 55 inch TVs, an Apple watch, three Apple iPad Airs, four PS4s, an xBox One and a $500 shopping spree. I hope everyone entered all of them. Smilie

Pretty sure I got all of them (unless they were posted late)...got a really nice Tarasenko Jersey with the GC I won earlier. Didn't wear my guido chains/flip flops, you know they clash with a jersey laugh out loud Dream of winning a Car or big cash from SD. Or even them allowing me to purchase shares at opening price when we have an IPO Wink

The business is almost worth a billion dollars. I have to admit I've been quite disappointed in the giving this year. I could have sworn in the past SD giving back much more to the people that run this website (us). Wasn't there a yearly giveaway where you were giving away a new item every hour for like a week? Just pointing out what I've noticed...

Seems the new owner isn't quite as generous as Mr. Slickdeals was.

Speaking of contributions, the giveaway extra entries reward system rewards laziness more than active participation.

A member gets only 1 extra entry per 200 reputation points while getting 1 extra entry for each 3 months of membership (to max of 30) and 1 extra entry for each 5 days of staying logged on.

This is bass-ackwards, pardon my French, rewarding couch potato surfing and existence more than earning rep points from hard earned contributions to the SD community.

Preach it, can you imagine if they gave more entries on reps up to 10,000 or 20,000, or 50,000?

A lot of people don't seem to care about giving reps to others anymore.

The people who make this like a second home and hang around for hours a day whether it be in the deals while looking for the best deal posted, the drugstore forum helping each other save tons of money, the tech support forum giving advice on all sorts of topics, the finance forum giving advice or asking questions, the lounge where people just chill, gamer's lounge discussing the latest games and systems, the podium to discuss politics and anything they wish to debate all add a benefit to the site. It keeps our community alive.

I hung out in the lounge for hours a day even before I got this job. And while there I did a lot of impulse shopping in the deals section.
I got to know a lot about all forums while "just being a couch potato surfing and existing" here laugh out loud


Not all advice, help, support and reasons to be here are repped. But everyone matters.


Account longevity is huge to us, it means they like it enough here to still be a part of this huge community and I don't know about you but I tell others I meet about Slickdeals all the time. I always have. The longer I am here..the more people I am telling about slickdeals.
People at my former job thought I was a bit goofy when they'd hear how excited I was about this place. laugh out loud and then jealous at some of the deals I snagged.

I can't count how many sites I joined back in the day.. when I joined here I probably also joined a dozen other sites..some for chatting, some for auction deals etc. within a couple of months of joining here... I stopped bothering with other sites. This one offers everything.

I doubt I am alone in that thought. SD can't buy that kind of devotion. It's the full community that makes it so great.
laugh out loud Sorry.. between the 2 SIS threads you have posted in you got a wall of text back from me. I am just pretty passionate about this community in general. And for the most part I think it works just fine.

That's not to say I don't want to hear when people think we have issues because I do want to hear that. We need to hear it. It does help us to hear about issues people see as well as hearing the positive. Wink
