Beside this we also have sub-forums, the sub-divisions of these forums owing to members need and the same can be accessed directly from the main page.
Answer: Desidime does provides you the option of searching deals of specific interest. You may do so using any of the methods described below:
If you scroll down a little below on forum pages, you will see a column of “Browse Hottest Deals by Categories”
Select the one that you wish to see (lets take Apparel and Accessories for example) and you will be shown the ‘Front Page Deals’ related to that section.
You can enter the Hot Deals – Online forum.
On the top, there is a filter option. Locate it and choose the category you want to search.
You may also filter the results to a ‘particular store’ and ‘popular only’.
A very handy way is to make use of the search box (located at top right side of page).
Enter your query and hit the ‘Search’ button. You will be shown the relevant topics.
If you still have any doubt related to purchase/deal or want to have the community members/experts advice, you can make a request in Deal Baba thread or discuss in Dost and Dimes section and the members would help you gladly.
Answer: Sometimes there is a limitation with normal search options that too many posts/topics related to a specific search term pops up and it becomes equally frustrating to look out for the desired one like it was before.
Hence we provide users with the option of ‘Advanced Search’ wherein users can make use of customized filters to get exactly what they want. Be it limiting a search to specific forum/specific category/specific store/specific city and even specific user. Not only it does provides an option of filtering results by date but one can also make a search based on user ratings. You can add as many filters as you like, it is completely customizable. So just go and check it out
The link to Advanced search appears once you make a query in regular search box or you can directly access it using the link given Here.
Answer: Certainly. You can always look at the store ratings and user reviews for the store before planning your purchase.
This can be done by Going to the Stores section and selecting the desired store. The rating parameters as well as customer reviews would be seen on the right. Not only this, you can also find the store’s policies and customer support details if you scroll down below.
To make things even more comfortable we have also provided an option to access store reviews and even display the store’s rating in the deal threads itself.
PS: Individual experience from a store will vary.
Answer: Of course you can rate a deal if you like/dislike it. The rating meter is present on every deal and you can make your selection. We also encourage you to post your comments for the deal using the reply to topic/quick reply button indicating why you feel the deal is good/bad.
The rating of a deal serves as a quick indicator of the popularity of the deal and this can be accessed straightaway from the threads list or after opening the particular deal thread. All you need is to point your cursor on the smileys and wait for a second, the total score would pop up.
Answer: As the name suggests, Front Page Deal (or FPD) are those top deals from the forums that we choose to display on DesiDime’s front page. We try to handpick the best amongst all deals using an exhaustive process so that the users have access to all those superb deals at one place. As a reward for bringing up such a great deal, the poster is credited with 20 Dimes for each deal that makes it to the front page.
To know all about how FPDs are selected please refer Here.
Since it is a user driven community, we give the members an option to suggest the deals they find awesome as a candidate for the Front page. This can be done by clicking on the “Suggest as FP Deal” button located below the main post.
Answer: To avoid fake suggestions and exploitation of the system, only users with above 50 posts can suggest a deal for FP. Also, we have capped the maximum number of suggestions by a single person to 3 (Three). So make sure to choose your picks wisely
Also note that you cannot suggest/like your own deal.
