Someone I referred made a purchase, but I don’t see the credit in my account. What gives?

Please allow up to 48 hours for referral rewards to be credited to your account. If you do not see the credit after 48 hours, please contact http://support.dealsmagazine.com/.

What is a searchable deal and how are they different from other deals?

A searchable deal is an ongoing deal that can be looked up in our database. For example, if you want to find a coupon for an Italian restaurant, but the daily deal sent to you was for a massage, just search for Italian restaurants in our database of searchable deals. They won't be as heavily discounted as our daily deals, but they're still a great way to explore local businesses for less.

I have Deals Magazine Dollars in my account. Why do I still need to enter a credit card?

If you have eligible Deals Magazine Dollars, you will see a credit under the “Purchase Summary” after you click “Get It” on any deal. Make sure you see your credit in the blue box. The “Purchase Summary” will reflect the total purchase price, your credit and the amount you owe, stated as “You Pay.” If the “You Pay” amount is zero, simply enter your credit card information for verification purposes. Your credit card will not be charged. If the “You Pay” amount is more than $0.01 your credit card will be charged the amount specified in the “You Pay” field.

Is there a referral rewards program?

Yep. Our referral program earns you Deals Magazine Dollars that can be used to purchase Deals Magazine deals. For more information on how to build your bank click here.

We take security seriously and use several methods to protect your personally identifiable information. We encrypt certain sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) to ensure your information is safe. For more information on our privacy policy, click here.

Where is Deals Magazine located?

Our headquarters is northwest of Chicago in Des Plaines, IL, near O'Hare International Airport.

The Need to Know says “Limit 1 per person.” Can I create another account to purchase it?

No, if duplicate accounts are located, we will close all but one account. You will be notified by email. You must respond to that email in order to select which account you’d like to keep open. If you fail to respond, we will select what we deem as the primary account. Unredeemed purchases completed on the additional accounts with the intent to purchase more than the allowed maximum stated by the vendor will be reimbursed to the credit card on file at the time the account(s) is closed. If continued fraud occurs after the first warning, we will close all accounts associated and purchases will no longer be allowed on Deals Magazine.
