First Time Deal of the Day Buyers Guide

By DealSucker into Deal of the Day on 11, June, 2014

We wrote this article, based on our extensive experience working with Daily Deal sites and customer complaints we see here from time to time. We've tried to create a guide that will help you to avoid most common mistakes Deal-of-the-Day shoppers make.

The classic Deal-of-the-Day business model is based on offering one deeply discounted product a day but do not be confused with group sales and many other implementations of the classic business model. It's no secret that Deal-of-the-Day model is a great way for online shopping and saves tons of money. Good deals run out of stock almost instantly so you should be able to make the right decision as quickly as possible. Let's start with a few important concepts you need to know before making your first Daily Deal purchase:

 

1. Retailer website - make sure it has basic contact information such as address, phone number and email. You probably check out the reviews on internet but you should always take into consideration the fact that people are more likely to share negative experiences than positive because negative experiences stir up strong emotions.

2. SSL - make sure all credit card transactions are done under valid secure protocol. Normally SSL protected pages URL starts with https://.

3. Return policy - check it carefully. in some cases your purchase may not be returnable or subject to restocking fees.

4. Pricing - smart shopping is always a good idea. Use Google, Amazon or eBay prior to purchase to make sure you are paying the lowest price. Pay attention to the shipping fee - you may be paying too much.

5. Item description, warranty and condition - read it carefully. Make sure you are completely confident with your choice before you move forward. In many cases, customers don't spend too much time reading product description, condition, return or shipping policy.

6. Delivery times - in some cases delivery takes a few days but it may also take up to 4-8 weeks depending on retail store and sales conditions.

7. Free Shipping - Everybody loves free shipping! Free shipping can be more powerful than a discount but it often contributes to a lengthy processing time and slower delivery times.

8. Order confirmation email - do not delete it! If you don't receive shipping confirmation within a week of making your payment, contact the retailer. Believe it or not, many internet users don’t recognize the name of a place where they made a purchase.

 

We hope this short guide has been useful to you! Feel free to post your comments or suggestions below.
