What is the history and popularity of the app?

Based out of San Jose, California, Dealspl.us was created to give online shoppers a better way to find discounts. The creators were tired of clipping coupons and searching multiple places for discounts. By creating a centralized location where everyone could bring the deals they find and look for even more savings, the Dealspl.us team founded a community of individuals who love to save money.

What are the differences to other apps?

The service offered by Dealspl.us is not entirely unique. Many websites provide coupon code lists and time sensitive promotions from various merchants. However, Dealspl.us harnesses the power of many by allowing the user to contribute their favorite deals. The result is a system that lets everyone win. The more users participate, the better the collection of coupon codes and promotions will become.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Dealspl.us offers a nicely designed website that features just enough open space to avoid becoming overwhelming. The homepage features recent deals with their plus status and a color image that works well. Each image includes a white background which helps keep the focus on the products and services being offered up.

How does the registration process work?

A visitor can become a user by clicking the white “Sign Up!” link at the top right hand corner of the homepage. The registration form is very short, requesting only a username, email address, password, and terms of use agreement. After entering the information and clicking the white “Sign Up!” button at the bottom of the form, the user is advised to check their email inbox and look for a validation email to complete the registration process.

There are no subscription fees or other payment requirements. Everyone can use all Deals Plus features as soon as they have validated their accounts. The site requests no payment information. Of course, there will be costs associated with the site based on how much shopping the user does after viewing discounts and coupons posted by others. In the end, how much is spent on Dealspl.us depends entirely on the individual user.
