How Does Latest Deals Make Money?

News

How LatestDeals makes money:

LatestDeals.co.uk is run by real people (Deepak, Tom and Kelsey) who work full time finding the best deals to help you save money. The website runs on servers which cost money, plus our office space in London where we work from.

To cover these costs and provide a living, Latest Deals may earn a small commission from the deals and discounts it posts. Some, not all, posts pay Latest Deals a little money every time someone buys it. For example, if we find half price champagne at Morrisons and you buy it, we may earn a little money. Usually, it's 1-3% of the total basket value. Pennies on the pound.

When using LatestDeals.co.uk, browsing our social media pages and any of our tools, please assume every link is one that we make money from. While the majority are not, if you feel uncomfortable about it then it would be better to act with the understanding that they all are.

We may also earn money from sponsored placement of products and services. For example, a brand may pay us a fee to feature on our Facebook Page. Again, whilst the majority are not, it is better to assume every deal and every social media post is so you may act in confidence.

Latest Deals is also the only money saving community to give you points and Amazon vouchers. These cost money and earning income allows us to give this to you.

If you have any questions about a specific deal, please contact us.

Couldn't Google Adsense and such also help Latest Deals? Ads do suck but it'd help LD, I think.

Haha I think I'd tend to agree with Tom - we'd want to do everything we could to avoid traditional advertisements. As you say - they suck! :smile:

I have a question.

Even websites that don't offer commission for the standard users, does LD still make any money out of it? I'm guessing not, because if it did then it would work for both sides but maybe I'm wrong.

Is it not possible for you to get money back from Tesco if we go from your website? Instead of purchasing the deals? Also it is not clear which deal support you, but I think it should be marked.

Hey AgnesFaludi, best just to assume it's every link. It isn't, not by a long-shot, but we'd rather everyone be comfortable in using Latest Deals with that knowledge.

As much as its interesting to know the in's and out's of Latest Deals, this is a business and not everything (financially) needs to be shared. I think Tom has been honest and open about the approach the website takes and as he says, if this affects you, then just do not join in.

What fascinates me is how the the business has grown and spawned fantastic communities on social media platforms. Perfect for lead generation and engagement. What's more you are incentivised to get involved and earn points. And we all love a loyalty scheme don't we?!

For me, the site's success is made by the Members for the Members. It is right the the Founders reap the successes. And I hope the future is bigger and brighter going forward.

LD Is A Fantastic Site To Post Deals On, They Do Have Expenses To Cover You Can't Have A Site This Good Without Expenses

And They Do Offer Something Back Unlike Other sites Who Offer Nothing ( H**d) Just Post Every Deal From Where ever And

If Its Good It Will Get Hearts If Its Great It It Will Get On The Top Deals List, You Get Points Which Earn Rewards, Whats Not To Like!

The Guys Are Doing Great Things They Need To Relocate To Birmingham Office Space Is Cheaper, Hey Every Things Cheaper.

Just Have Fun Posting The Deals You love :heart_eyes:

Tom puts alot of effort into replying to comments etc so obviously he needs to earn money. If I could click on every deal and buy it I would lol. At the end of the day everyone gets something from it. Tom & Co make a bit of money and we get better deals and in all fairness Tom has posted some great glitches.

They run the 2 sites aswell as keeping Facebook updated. No doubt they barely made anything when starting it up they have put alot of time and effort in and they listen to what people want. They make everything simple.

In all fairness they should earn everytime someone clicks from there site and makes a purchase but they don't.

It never crossed my mind at the end of the day a service is provided you find bargains we take advantage of them so you should be paid in some way for your service I have no problem with this you all do a great job and the community also put the work in and receive a small reward for their efforts so it's a big win win for all 🙂

It's a fantastic website! Obviously they have to earn their money somehow, I can't believe that anyone could have problem with that 😂

Honestly if I found a great deal for me that saves me some cash then I couldn't care less if anybody else earn something from that or not 😜
