I am not understanding now the frontpage deals.. I have two deals with with 25 and 32 points I saw them on top trending or best deals but on my profile they dont appear as if they were frontpage?
Since they made changes a few days ago it is confusing...Anyone has any idea how is this working now????
They were not deal updates
I appreciate any help! Thanks

points = plusses, or "saves" now? A lot of it is up to the mods as well, there seems to be no set way to predict what they will put on the front page so it is tough for deal posters :/

It's all confusing... It's just going to take time to adjust to all the changes!

The home page is now set to show "Top Deals & Coupons" as default which is purely based on "Saves".

"Today's Best" is now based on many different factors (saves, clicks, time on site, staff picks, etc.) and is what the home page used to look like before the changes.

Overall, the new homepage will be much more representative of what people want to see, based purely on what they're saving.

I was wondering that same thing too, because I had a recent starbucks deal that hit 67 saves before it frontpaged! And even then I couldn't seem to find out where it went. Confusing for me, but I'm easily confused, lol. Thanks for clearing it up for us, Acarone :)
