Suggestion: "Premium" subscription option for SD

I think it's well-known that Slickdeals receives most of it's revenue through referral payments for users' clicks on the links in the deal postings. I suspect there's a decent portion of users that after finding a deal on Slickdeals, they use a 3rd party cashback referral provider that splits the click-through referral income with the users.

For those users, SD doesn't see much/any revenue. For the users, it's also a bit of a hassle to load up another browser or incognito session and find the product on the vendor's page. I'd be willing to paid a monthly/annual amount to have my SD account linked to the cashback provider that I use. If I'm a premium member, then my clicking on a SD link routes through my cashback provider so that I don't have to mess with multiple browsers/sessions.

Seems like it would be a win/win: SD gets revenue from the user base that currently uses a 3rd party cashback provider. Users no long have the headache, hassle, etc....
