- About "Nearby Deals"
- I installed the dealsnapt app and clicked on 'Nearby Deals'. I don't see any deals?
Check your settings first. By default we display only deals within 10 miles. Use the "Search Radius" slider at top left to change your search radius. The larger the radius, the more results!
Still nothing? That means we have not yet snapt your town. But this should not stop you from using the app. Download the dealsnapt app for iPhone or Android and create deals for everyone see or keep them private. Creating deals take 30 seconds and it is fun :)
You should be able to see 'Nearby Merchants' in six main categories. The list will change based on your current location or location at the top of the page.
All it takes is you and a few others to snapt deals and share with everyone and now you have a very cool set of location-based deals
- Should I wait to use dealsnapt until you guys are in my area?
Not really. You can always see merchants nearby, check promotions and make some quick cash or win awards. You used to rely on text messages, word of mouth and endless product review sites to find good deal. Now you have dealsnapt to create a list of bookmarks, share with friends and family or everyone, and to read comments from fellow shoppers and rate deals.
- What is a FLASH deal?
Merchants around you that are in our merchant network offer FLASH deals. The intention of a FLASH deal is to be active on a given day and scheduled to run for a number of hours. A FLASH deal is used to quickly notify users of a deal NOW, and has prominence in the application.
In other words, when you see a flash deal, and it looks good to you, don't wait too long. They are active only for a few hours, they tend to have steep discounts and they are very popular.
Subscribe yourself to receive instant notifications for flash deals on your smartphone by downloading our iPhone or Android app and going to: My Account -> Settings -> Push Notifications

We promise to review it within the same day and remove the deal if we find it inappropriate or incorrect.

No! These are deals about products and services for your eyes only and whomever you decide to share with. You can identify these deals by the 'private' banner.

- About "Purchasing Deals"
- What's the difference between "redeem" and "purchase"
"Redemption" is like giving a coupon to the merchant. The merchant will enter a secret pin code into your dealsnapt app on your Smartphone and you will pay for the deal at the time of sale. You don't need to make any payments from your app. You get the discount just showing your app. Yes it's that simple!!
A "purchase" is like pre-paying and reserving the deal by charging your credit card in advance through dealsnapt. Once purchased you will receive a voucher for that deal. When you go to use the voucher the merchant will scan, or record the voucher, and the voucher cannot be used again. You will not need to pay the value of the voucher at the time of sale in the store.
- The deal says, "redeemed" and it won't let me buy more.
Some merchants limit the amount of times any one person can use a deal. You can think of this like a "1 per customer" deal or a "Limited offer".

The more you use dealsnapt to save money, the more opportunities you have to win fun stuff! Winners are notified by email at the end of each drawing.
