I am puzzled by the lack of information from DP's ownership/management regarding any changes to the site. Ending the MM program, in my opinion, has greatly reduced the quality of Hot Deals and some of the members who regularly dug up really great deals appear to have stopped posting (though some are still posting, albeit at a fraction of their previous efforts). I can understand if MM was hurting DP. It would only make sense to end it or greatly reduce the payments. I feel like I am watching DP spiraling slowly down until it is just background noise in the world of deal sites.

I guess the answer is "nothing." We are on a slowly sinking ship.

The ship has been sinking for years Erick, the money was blinding all of you, I warned you about all of this many many times before, I told you the MM would end, and the site will shut down. DP has a very stubborn management team, they would rather pat themselves on the back than listen to critical advice over the years. They absolutely deserve to lose, if you wait 7 years to finally find out that your plan is not working, then you don't deserve to be in the business.

I don't think MM was the entire problem though it likely contributed to its current woes. I have no idea how their business model works. I have found a replacement source of "fun Money" editing product descriptions for Chinese companies who sell on Amazon. It's more fun, I enjoy writing, and it's paying more than MM. DP did fine before MM and they still can without paying members. But they seem to lack the sense of urgency to do so.

Eric, so you applied in Amazon? Where did you find that offer?

No, I approached the Chinese marketing companies directly and offered to edit their product descriptions.

I'm not sure they'd want there names revealed but as an example, one was mPow. I was already doing other small tasks, the clerks among the companies know each other so my name got passed around and I was soon helping five a lot and five or six more occasionally. When MM ended I suggested that I edit their product descriptions so they sounded "American." Yesterday I did 12. I can do about 5 an hour. I get paid mostly in product which I resell on Craigslist. The first two weeks I earned about $300. I was earning about $350 a on MM.

I also found a new job- and I'm excited to get started. All online, and flexible schedule! I was sad when MM went away, but I guess God had something better in store for me.

C'mon DP, there has got to be some changes coming. This is my favorite site but it feels like it is failing. I'm not talking about paying members again. That was nice but now it's gone. DP was great before MM and it can be again.

I think one of the changes you were asking about is that we cannot input codes anymore.

There is no "submit" button on store pages but the "+" button at the top right of DealsPlus is still there. @Bearsybear

No names, no dates, leader-board hasn't been update since November. With a few more changes they should be able to make us all go away since posts are all anonymous. I'm done. This is my last communication or interaction with DP. The ship is welcome to down but I don't want to be aboard. Very, very sad and I will miss it a lot but enough is enough. *poof*
