New: Bonus Points Available for Great Comments!

News

Hey guys,

We launched the point system to reward our amazing members for contributing to the community - whether that’s by liking posts, commenting, reporting expired deals or anything else!

We’re excited to say today that we’ve added in a new incentive for writing awesome comments - if your comment gets three or more likes you’ll get awarded 20 bonus points 🎉

What’s an awesome comment?

  • A helpful comment answering a member's question
  • Something insightful. Say someone posts a deal for a lawnmower you already own - comment with whether it’s good (or bad!)
  • Something funny that makes people laugh!
  • Or just something that’s popular with the members of Latest Deals!

In an effort to make the points system clear we’ve created a new one-stop-resource for all things points. You can access it here: https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/points

The new points page shows

  • What you can earn points for
  • If there are any limits to how many points you can earn in a day
  • The rewards you get for earning points
  • Your point history - explaining where points came from (or, occasionally, went to!)

Good luck on your quest for awesome comments and we hope you enjoy this new way of earning points 🙂

I think this sounds interesting & I hope this leads to helpful comments etc not into debates on people's posts. For example if someone had posted a deal for something in the Sun newspaper people won't start commenting with their own personal views on the newspaper and still focus on the deal itself.

That's neat. Hopefully it'll make folks construct better comments than just 'Thank you' or 'Hi'. Not saying that person may or may not be thankful for it but adding a bit more of context wouldn't hurt.

This is a fab idea with a great incentive to keep building your points. It's a great friendly site where such good people share with each other fantastic bargains and savings that they discover, so lots of people from all walks of life, can come together and share the savings. I've had some fantastic bargains and freebies, that I would never have known about, if I hadn't joined this site. With the extra advantage of earning points for Amazon vouchers, for my account...brill.

UrsulaDias lol yep, you don’t need to get an eye test just yet 😜 I’m actually on 164 217 but having passed the last few, tough hurdles, it won’t take long (I’ve been on here since the start)

just watch out for those extra extra opportunities to get more points, like the bounty challenges that pop up now and again - that usually bumps up the points quickly

as long as you enjoy the journey, you’ll breeze through 😊

It's nice to show appreciation to others. Just a pity when you post a competition and hundreds enter and only a few make an effort to thank you. It take a second to click enter - what about giving us a thank you 😁

Users chit chattin' and just discussin' is one of the areas which HUKD reigns over but hopefully this incentive changes things. Not just because there's a reward but in general.

Fellas at that site talked about getting a tip and LD offers that so they might be interested in joining.

"First come, first served." imagine if I LD had been the first over HUKD. 😜

It's a good idea but flawed. Once people get the boat moving, this shouldn't be necessary anymore as the amount of likes a comment gets is impractical. On Twitter/Facebook/YouTube someone can write a single word and get hundreds/thousands or millions of likes so this takes me back to the perspective quantity vs quality. A slippery slope, that is.

Great initiative to get people talking on here but it's not being done naturally but rather there may be a reward.

Hey rochey2 🙂

You should still get 5 points for liking a post (it looks like I accidentally forgot to include that in the new points table - I'll fix that in the next update!)

We have updated the rules for comments so that they need to be a bit more substantial before they start earning points.

We'd still encourage people to say thanks or similar to the original poster but want the points to be a reward for actively contributing towards LD 👍
