Pop up ads using Slickdeals

3,233 1,286 December 6, 2018 at 03:17 PM
I know there are several posts regarding this issue but I'm making another as this is still happening to me. I didn't realize it has been going on so long until I started reading the other posts. I just received another a few minutes ago. Are the mods going to address this issue and get it fixed? If nothing is done I will have to stop using SD. It is unusable. Please fix this ASAP. I only get these pop ups using SD. I am using my iPhone. Thanks

Regards,

Slickdeals is the one to blame at this point. It has been grossly negligent and knowingly potentially harming its users out of pure greed.

If this happpened just once or twice, the blame would be elsewhere. The fact that it has been going on for so long is just insane on the part of sd. Sd has other options besides status quo whack a mole. New users will be turned off by the site before the get hooked. Sd is better off showing no ads to ios users until it finds a new ad provider.

I am having the same problem, again this year. Same thing as last year. I have cleared ALL of my cookies, reset my browser settings and lost a LOT of data/history I cannot get back.

Listen here SD....this is a real problem. I cannot use your site for my holiday shopping. Your advertisers and sources are LOSING revenue. Figure it out. I am spending a finite amount of money in the next week and when it's gone, it's gone.

I've found if I use Chrome, I don't have the same issue.....yet. However, it is popping up on Safari on SD... and now I've seen it on others sites too. (They're stalking me).
Its happening with chrome on the ipad as well, but not as bad.

This is a problem where a trojan advertisement you clicked on on some other site happened to append the cookies for the last site you visited, or the domain attached to your address (websites get information about your navigation history up to one step(site) away, so where you cam from and what you went to).

Clear your site history, cookies, and website data files and you shouldn't have the issue anymore. I thought you had the issue in general, not only this site and only on iDevices
Wrong. Happening with brand new virgin instance of Chrome as well. SD is to blame for being grossly negligent.

Also to those clearing cache it's not your fault. If the ad provider let's in executable JavaScript it will do this and there is nothing you can do

I am on iPad (updated to latest iOS), and SD is the only site that has this pop up saying "Congratulations AT&T customer". Very annoying, and happens every time I'm on SD. PLEASE FIX!

it is a slickdeals issue, not a Apple or Google issue. As soon as I do on my iPad (6th gen) I get the uncontrolled pop ups. I don't get it with any other sites. I can access slickdeals on PC with Chrome with no issues. So slickdeals is allowing some pop advertiser to have access. They better get this resolved quickly or the user volume and ad revenue will drop off.

Daily user who will now check in once a week or so.........
