Deals get to the Frontpage when they garner lots of interest from the community in the form of votes and other positive feedback. Our team of expert Deal Editors validates these popular deals by researching:
- Price history
- Customer reviews
- Expert reviews
If everything checks out okay in their research, the deal is then posted on the Frontpage
Why do some deals with a lot of votes not make the Frontpage?
There are several reasons why a popular deal may not appear on the Frontpage. Here are a few potential reasons:
- The product/service may be limited in availability. Some deals are region-specific, or limited in inventory.
- The deal might require price-matching from retail associates, which usually carries an uncertain outcome. These will typically be labeled as YMMV, which is short for "Your mileage may vary".
- The post may be a PSA (public service announcement), announcing a price drop or a policy change, but not necessarily offering a deal.
