From humble beginnings in 1999, Slickdeals founder Van started the site in his dorm room at San Jose State University. It was the early days of e-commerce, and Van discovered there were tons of hacks, promotions, sales, coupons, and offers that could all be combined to save money and get the ‘thrill of the deal!’
What started as a blog for Van to share his personal deal finds with friends, family and a small audience, soon started to gain a good reputation and a larger following. Later, when Van added forum functionality to the site, Slickdeals transformed into a large online community of deal seekers sharing with each other.
Twenty years later, our community is 11 million strong, and by our calculations, we’ve saved consumers more than $6.8 billion, all while staying true to our mission of helping shoppers win everywhere.
