With regards to Slickdeals, is it okay to just suggest that they look at the forums on CAG as it may answer their questions. Yes, I saw some griping on SD, but just PM'ed the people I knew to basically say Tony has it covered, be patient or in some cases, contact CS for application of the $5 credit.
Maybe it is just me, I do not understand why some on SD do not like CAG. If you look at their deal postings a significant amount are regarding games. Why not look on CAG for more information?
Ugh. Not this again.
It doesn't matter how you feel about other forums. The few CAGers that repost on other forum communities help Amazon make more sales. Amazon having more sales gives Tony a better bargaining position. This means Tony can negotiate better deals for your benefit.
And I'm sorry if I implied at all that there was any hostility from SD members to CAG members. It's more of just an abundance of caution concerning the guys who run the forums. Forum sites like SD and CAG pay for their servers through referral links. Every time you make a purchase by clicking a CAG link, CAG may receive compensation. And if I learned one thing in life, you never mess with other people's money lightly. But I may be too paranoid on this issue as well and I certainly don't speak for anyone else in my posts.
So if you like CAG, purchase using CAG links.
I myself have been purchasing mostly through CAG but that's because it's usually the site I spend the most time talking about Amazon deals.
I've also been reposting less Amazon deals and letting others take care of it, mostly because some people can be very rude out of ignorance (please note, I'm not talking about any the posts on this thread). I hope next time that Tony asks someone to update the SD community, that person does not decline because they might get flamed.
As to the specific question -- it's because you guys are a subset of the deal hunters out there. Most folks spend their time on a general forum like slickdeals, fatwallet, or the general reddit threads. So they're not going to spend a lot of time on CAG because they want to know about all the deals online out there -- not just video games. That's why the reposts are helpful, we're spreading deal news to a larger audience.
