  • I know it’s hard to find new deals everyday, but can you guys steer away from the phone plans and the Maccas app? Today, there’s one deal about Optus plans, one about “data plans” and yet another Maccas deal.

    • Thanks for the feedback. McDonald’s is currently running its ’30 Days 30 Deals’ promotion which is why they keep popping up.

      With that said, we do try to provide variety. Yes, there are two phone plans above – but there are also deals for smart speakers, video games, baby clothes and VPNs.

      • Yeah, but there are _always_ phone plans and VPNs, which are things that people typically have interest in only on very special occasions. A super-duper-wowsers-incredible deal every so often might be one thing, but the repetition just makes it feel as though the other stuff is an afterthought.
