A huge thanks to Dealspotr for sponsoring today’s post. My love of their well-organized coupon database is all my own.
With the holidays coming up, I think we can all use a new way or two to save money when buying those gifts online. I’m one of those shoppers that absolutely doesn’t buy something from a website without searching for a coupon code first – making that a habit can save so much money when online shopping! As a matter of fact, I’ve come to despise empty coupon code boxes when buying something online – it’s kind of a pet peeve of mine. 😉
That’s why I was so excited to find out about a new resource for online coupon codes to helps make sure I never have to leave that box blank – Dealspotr.com. Like many of the coupon database sites, this is a user-generated database of codes. However, there are a few things that set Dealspotr apart from the rest.
Just like the others, you can search almost every online store imaginable through Dealspotr. You name it, it probably has a section on this site. Coupons are listed by users and can be accessed by copying/pasting from the site. Sound familiar? This is a similar layout to many other coupon code sites I’m sure you’ve used before.
But hear me out – there are a few features of this site that really set it apart and make it so much more user-friendly. Dealspotr allows you the ability to hand-pick the type of coupon you need and find deals that really aren’t easily accessible on other coupon databases.
Let’s dive into what it can really do by looking at the site. Say I’m shopping on Kate Spade’s site and need a coupon code. I search for “Kate Spade” in the top search bar and, boom – I’m presented with a list of KateSpade.com coupon codes. Easy peasy.
But, this is where I typically run into a roadblock with my coupon-searching journey. You’ve probably had the same experience I’ve had with coupon code sites: even though you have a great, long list of coupon codes, none of them work. You try even the codes that are ranked high and they just don’t give you a discount. It happens to me all the time (and, needless to say, can be a little frustrating). I think this is what sets Dealspotr apart from other sites.
See this little box over on the left of the screen? In my opinion, this is the real magic of using Dealspotr. This box allows you to filter coupons by type, including codes that are site-wide, single-use coupons, and codes that are assigned to specific products.
I select a single-use coupon for Kate Spade and check to see that it has been tested for validity. I can see how long ago it was validated, when it expires (which is usually within a week or two, since these are coupons for one person), and even a screenshot that proves it currently works. These are all tested by Dealspotr users! In my opinion, this system makes Dealspotr one of the most accurate coupon databases on the web.
Dealspotr has another feature that is great when searching for deals on your favorite products (whether or not they’re sold at other retailers). You can find third-party deals that give you discounts on popular brands and various stores. Let’s take Apple for example. You can go to Apple’s Dealspotr page and see codes for their site. But let’s say you want to buy an Apple product at a different store, but still need a discount code for it?
They’ve got it covered. Head to that left-hand side of the page and click on the button for “3rd party deals.”
There, you’ll see places you can find discounts on Apple products all over the internet, even if they aren’t at apple.com. And, just like the other discounts, you’ll be able to see when it was validated (including any screenshot proof of the validation), how long it’s valid, and how likely it is to work.
Isn’t that awesome? It’s the most organized coupon database I’ve ever seen (and you guys know I love some organization!). I love that I can search for single-use coupons and that the codes are so well-validated.
This, of course, is a user-sourced website. Not only do users submit codes, but they validate them as well. This is made into kind of a social experience by giving users points for activity on the site, including submitting their bio, entering codes, and validating others’ codes. You’ll even earn points for submitting accurate codes. The best part of this? You can trade in these points for Amazon gift cards! So, not only are you saving money by using the site, you’re getting paid to participate as well.
