You will be alerted as soon as we find a deal that we consider very hot. Top deals usually expire very soon, sometimes in a few hours and that's why we send out non-regular newsletters. You will receive regular newsletters (usually three times a week) too.
We respect your privacy and your email will not be provided to any third party without your explicit consent. You can unsubscribe at any time.
If you always have problem loading some of our links, (such as "cannot find server" or "this page cannot be displayed" error in your browser), most likely it is caused by software such as ad/popup blocker or security software. Try to disable these programs, delete the cache of your browser, and then try our link again. To correct the problem:
Check your HOST file. There is a special file named hosts, which in default only has one entry w/ some comments: 127.0.0.1 localhost
But some software may change the file which block access to some servers that we use. Depending on your OS, the file may be located in these directories:
MacOS 8 and 9: System Folder: Preferences: Hosts
Windows 95/98/ME: C:\Windows\hosts
Windows 2000 or NT: C:\Winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
Windows XP Home/Pro: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
Check if the following URLs are present, remove the entire line if you found any in the host file:
clickserve.cc-dt.com, click.linksynergy.com, service.bfast.com, www.qksrv.net
These are servers that we use to track statistics they do not generate popups or other hideous tricks.
If you have one of these softwares:
Ad Aware Pro or Plus 6 (non-free versions): Some links may not work. To correct it, open sites.txt under C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 6 (your actual directory may vary), remove these lines - bfast.com, cc-dt.com, linksynergy.com, qksrv.net.
Ad Subtract: Some links disappear. To correct it, you can 1) Select the Filter Tab, click Add, enter www.xpbargains.com, and do not block anything; OR 2) disable Ad substract temporarily.
SpyStop 2: Unblock these links: clickserve.cc-dt.com, click.linksynergy.com, service.bfast.com, www.qksrv.net.
Kazaa Lite: If the optional Supertrick is installed, edit your hosts file as shown above.
Problem with Deals or Coupons
If you have trouble getting the deal or coupon we post, there are some possible causes:
The deal or coupon may have expired, double check the expiration date. Deals and coupons may expire earlier than expected for various reasons, for example some merchants may pull a deal or coupon early, or the estimated expiration date given in our site is not correct.
The merchandise was sold out quickly and is no longer available. For example, once an Officemax item is sold out, it may appear the item never existed on their website.
Check if one of these link problems applies.
We made a mistake. The deal or coupon link is broken, or the description of the deal or coupon is not entirely correct. While we try our best to make sure everything is all right, mistakes do happen. Note we are not responsible any problem for inaccuracy or mistake on this site. It's your responsibility to double check everything. See our term of use.
If you have any question about a deal, just follow the deal talk link to post your question in our forum. No user registration is required.
