Serious Question - Why are there so MANY credit card offerings on the front page?

34 37 February 26, 2018 at 09:57 AM
Currently on the front page (24"in monitor with the page maximized) there are 7 "slots" under the Featured Deals title. 4 of these slots are credit card or airline card marketing offers.

Under the Deals you may have missed section, there are about 5 or 6 at the moment.

Are these credit card services really providing so much revenue to SD by being advertised this way?

This question comes from a point of view that this is a website/forum for posting actual deals. I'm having a hard time understanding how these credit card offers are a deal? We know that each CC company always provides offers that are lucrative and try to attract new customers. Its just so commonplace, that I wouldn't consider that a deal at all, which leads me to believe that they are in a business partnership with SD.

The credit card deals are some of the deals members love them ost. I know that I have signed up for many of them myself.
The threads seem to stay active and involved for longer periods of time than the average deal threads.

That said we are looking into concepts for giving them their own space so that A) they can all be found easily and B) allows more "other" deals to shine on the FP.
