user posted ones are not allowed but as with many sites on the web you will often see our (slickdeals) affiliate redirects when you click links here.

if you are unsure of the nature of a particular link, feel free to mod alert the post and one of the mods on duty will take a look.

When you post a deal, SD adds their own link to get the referral credit. That's how they make their money.
