What is Latest Deals?
Latest Deals is a UK deal sharing community. Members find and share the best deals, discounts, voucher codes, competitions and freebies.
Latest Deals has been designed and built with the help of money saving experts. We wanted it to be for deal hunters, from deal hunters.
I remember going to Pret A Manger in Holborn Circus, London, to meet Andy Webb of the Money Advice Service and BeCleverWithYourCash.com.
Latest Deals was just scribbles on a notepad then. Andy listened to the idea and gave invaluable advice. The ability to follow profiles comes from Andy.
We went to journalists too. Simon Read, personal finance editor of The Independent (may she rest in peace), came out of the BBC one lunchtime and gave his thoughts. He made us focus on helping people as much as possible. Personalising Latest Deals so you can find the special offers, discounts and voucher codes you want. The side bar filters? That came from Simon.
Then came a flurry of the UK's top money bloggers. Emma Mumford, Kalpana Fitz, Mrs Mummy Penny, Thinkin' Thrifty, ReducedGrub, FromAldiToHarrods, ThriftyMum, Naomi, Nat, Steve, Faith, Emmax3, Maria, Sarah and so, so many more. Together ideas were pooled, tested and made.
I spent weeks on the phone and in person shaping Latest Deals into what it is today. It really is a team effort. On our first day, when Kelsey (our Leonardo Da Vinci) put the site up, these guys plus more from Pedlar (Kelsey's previous site) came over to help us test Latest Deals.
We wanted Latest Deals to be the very best deals and discounts community. Competitions and freebies too. If you wanted to save money, Latest Deals had to be the first thought. We could only do that if we listened - to you.
Real deals shared by genuine people.
Di Coke of SuperLucky.Me gave me hours of her time on the phone. She has been instrumental in the creation of our competition section. She opened my eyes 👀 to the world of comping and said, "we need a mobile friendly comping site"!!! Again, Latest Deals is one big mash of incredible ideas from incredible people.
I've always said Latest Deals is a community. But I feel it is more a family.
