What do you get when you combine one part Digg, some of the best, cheapest products out there and a little splash of Web 2.0? You get DealsPlu.us, a new social shopping site with a user-controlled rating system similar to Digg’s pioneering format.
Our mission is simple, to save you time and money. We offer a distinctive place where people can share hot-deals from anywhere within the Internet world. Our feature allows people to know what the most hot-deals are and what people think about the deals.
The concept is simple (as some of the best ones are) – users are presented with deals on a wide range of merchandise, from audio/video options to home and garden offerings. Each has a plus button (“+”) that can be used to vote if you think the deal is good or not. This then allows for users to come along and discover the best deals as voted on by the rest of the site’s community. Clicking on this button also stores the deal (as a bookmark) to the users profile page for later review.
There’s even RSS feeds that you can subscribe to to get the latest deals as they come in as well as the latest coupons and offers the site recieves. Users can also submit deals that they might come across – espeically useful for those “one day only” deals lots of stores offer.
