Slickdeals.net is a website that describes itself as the largest deal sharing platform on the Internet, offering their visitors a wide variety of both coupons and special deals from all over the web and the nation.
Websites that offer visitors printable or downloadable coupons for groceries or other items have exploded in popularity in the last few years, as people are eager for the opportunity to find good deals on the items they look for everyday.
Most of these websites act as aggregates. This means that they simply collect all the coupons and deals from around the web electronically and then put them in one place so users can find what they need.
Slickdeals.net works differently. Instead of electronically collecting deals, the members of Slickdeals.net find the deals and coupons from a variety of retailers and then post them in forums on their website.
Once a deal is posted in a forum, the community is then allowed to vote on each deal and offer other members helpful feedback so that you can find the best deal. Once a deal gets lot of positive votes and feedback, their Deal Editors review it. Theses editors will choose the best deals from the ones with the best reviews and then place these on their Front Page.
Sometimes a deal with a lot of votes may not make it to the Front Page. This can happen for a few different reasons, often that the deal is limited in availability, in inventory, or it is region specific and therefore not useful to all of their customers.
But these are still very good deals with lots of positive feedback and votes, so they go into their Popular Deals section, where you can find excellent deals that are applicable in your residential area.
In addition, to be the most convenient for their users, Slickdeals.net offers a mobile app so you can check their deals from wherever you are, as well as a glossary of terms often used in their forums so you can best understand the type of deals you are working with.

Slickdeals.net was sold and no longer a community driven forum.... it is now affiliate commission driven by the new owners and employees that often shill each other's deal postings to bring junk deals to "Front Page" status. There are still some good deals to be found, but buyer beware with something being popular, or even a deal... do your homework.
As well, if you do not have an ad blocker, do not click on any ads shown on that site.
I lost $199 on the purchase of a Dyson fan. The website advertised on Slick Deals was counterfeit and the seller, Best Online Shop, sent me a plastic toy.
I sent the plastic toy back to China and have filed a dispute. waiting for resolution. I agree with the review that Slick deals used to be a good site. Totallly unreliable. When I complained to them, they take no responsibility for the sites they post.
The deal of the 2 for $20 at Boston Market was legitimate, but the online order $3 off coupon didn't work and I got an "invalid coupon" message.
Slickdeals is a review site of temporarily discounted products and service originally designed to serve the community. It has been transformed into a site which shills for the highest bidder and perpetuates an environment in which anarchy prevails (ostensibly to artificially raise post count and thus advertising revenue). The information on the site is no longer reliable, optimal, and is many times not even palatable in its presentation. AVOID this site like the plague it's become.
