The Vertive team are the minds behind Offers.com. Vertive has published ten additional sites along with Offers that allow consumers to review and purchase products and services on the internet. Their main creation, Offers, has earned awards as well as a large user base. Awards include the Innovative Publisher of the Year for 2009 from LinkShare and the People’s Choice award from CJYou Awards also in 2009.
There are many websites that offer users a general list of available discounts and coupon codes. However, many times these sites are lacking or contain outdated information. Offers takes the task of maintaining a money saving database more seriously. Users can browse an enormous collection of discount opportunities that come in different formats from retailers and businesses in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Offers helps refine the process by also dividing the available offers up into 190 categories so users can see what is available.
The Offers.com website presents a new user with a lot of stimulation at once. There are colorful logos from popular companies, graphics, icons, and plenty of content to browse. This may seem a bit busy at first but the user will find that the most important tools, namely the search bar and sign in link, are easily accessible. The rest gives users more options, such as a quick jump to a specific company through the stores and companies spotlight menu, or a subscription to the Offers newsletter which is displayed across the bottom of the browser.
A new user can register for an Offers.com account by clicking the blue “Sign In” link found at the top right hand corner of the homepage. To the right, the user will find the existing account login fields. To the right, a blue link invites the user to “Setup a password.” Clicking this link will open up the registration form, which asks for very minimal information (including an email address and password). After completing registration, the user can access their My Locker page and save offers on the site. Registration is not required to browse or search.
The Offers website does not charge users for searching or signing up. Anyone can create an account without paying a dime. The site is dedicated to saving money, so this seems logical. However, how much the user spends as a result of Offers is entirely up to them. By viewing special offers, users can make purchases online and save money (or possibly be enticed to make additional purchases they weren’t originally planning on making).
Anyone that likes to save money can appreciate Offers.com. The site is completely dedicated to helping users find savings online. The emphasis is on purchases made through online retailers and businesses, so users that buy online frequently can really enjoy the service provided by Offers.com.
