Slickdeals uses Google AdSense which earns quite a bit of money. Dealsplus has 0 ads and give out money through MM, I wonder how much private funding they've got. What are the revenue streams then? It sounds like Youtube for the first few years before Google bought it out.

it does have some ads, but giving out money as MM is a great deal. Many thanks to this great company.

I might be wrong but I have a hunch dealsp.us might get a cut for every purchase that is made through a provided link. In other words, anyone who buys a product from a deal that they saw on dealspl.us might contribute to dealspl.us's revenue.
Not sure if that's clear...

And even so, they help people make some extra cash. Would you rather use a site that helps those big companies, or the middle class folks who may just need a bit extra to get by?

Every deals site gets a slice of the pie on every link clicked. Thats the whole point of the site is referrals. And SD does alot for the community as well. Its not in the form of money makers but they have a giveaway daily with at least a value of $100.

They make money by click throughs. Each time someone clicks on a link ,they make money

Clicks and purchases and ads. DP seems to be able to make a living and is the only site that I can think of that pays folks who posts deals and pays them well. Whatever they are doing, I hope they continue to do it for a good long time as the extra money makes a big difference in my scant budget.

I agree with Eric. Doesn't matter what they are doing. What matters is that they ARE DOING IT and they share that revenue with us. Thanks DP.
