Slickdeals' app aggregates thousands of deals submitted by its users on a variety of products, services and offers. These are then evaluated in the Hot Deals forum by the community that votes up or down, and provides feedback on the product or the deal itself. After a deal gets enough up-votes, it graduates to the Popular Deals forum. There, Slickdeals' team of Deal Editors monitors and evaluates all deals before hand-picking the ones that go to the Frontpage. All of them are thoroughly researched for price history, product reviews, and whether there's free shipping or a coupon code to go along with them. Only the best make it to the Slickdeals Frontpage, which is supposed to be your first stop before buying anything.
