Dealspl.us Mobile Site

20
For those of you who are interested in finding a DP app, there isn't one out there...at least not currently. However, there is a mobile site. You can visit the site at http://m.dealspl.us/

Keep in mind how to efficiently view the mobile version of the site.

1. Go to http://m.dealspl.us/ to see which deals have front paged

2. You can use the search option for any specific items or deals of choice

3. Once you see a deal that you are interested in, click on that deal

4. Rather the read the deal there in the mobile version, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "Desktop" in order to view the page in desktop mode

5. Read all the details of the deal and proceed to get your deal

Things to keep in mind:

a. The mobile version does not contain the description area. This means that if you there is a code you need for the deal, you will not be able to see the code until you view the deal in desktop mode

b. Some deals will give you an error when attempting to retrieve the page. That's okay. If that's the case, you can just go back to desktop mode and view the actual deal the way it was meant to be viewed

c. Expired deals do not always appear to be expired in the mobile site. On the desktop site, you can see a faded grey "Expired" banner over the deal, however the mobile site does not show this. This means you may accidentally be trying to get a deal that no longer exists

d. Though you may view comments made, you cannot create a comment while in the mobile site. You may, however, switch to desktop mode and then add your comment


If you choose to use the mobile site, just make sure you know the limitations. I personally still use the mobile site for quick viewing, then if I find a deal I'm interested in, I switch to desktop mode.

Happy deal hunting!
