Slickdeals.net has been around for a long time now. I've been purusing it for about 6 or 7 years. What it is not is a retailer or reseller. It's a listing where registered users may post "hot" or "slick" deals they find on or offline, such as a printable coupon for a free 32 oz at the QuikyMart.

It's a one stop source for sales, coupons, and good deals on practically anything and only depends on what sales are occuring and that users post them to slickdeals. I've purchased clothes, computer parts, and gifts from there and also have gotten a lot of free stuff too.

They update multiple times daily so you have to keep an eye on it if you are shopping

As a registered tutor on wyzant, I was contacted by a number of students none of whom had billing information and we never met. Two more had contacted me but selected another tutor from a site outside of wyzant.

Today, I received a notice from Wyzant that my account has been removed because of lack of business and "not a good fit for you" as a reason. I routinely did searches, and responded to any relevant inquiries to my field(s). I even aspired to qualify for more subjects in order to attract more business. I haven't seen any other tutors with 26 areas of qualification. Also, this is summer vacation, most people are not in school now. Inactive indeed.

Bottom line, I find the business model on their end to be a good one, they take a big bite of a tutor's salary. On the receiving end, I was only using it to attract more business than I currently have (I have made as much as 1000 dollars extra a mont tutoring only part time, I have a full time job) and it's not a big deal to me but there was little or no attention to my areas (Science and math mostly) which are my biggest money maker as a tutor... so... I disagree with their reasons.

That, and I've never been on any kind of website that "cleanses" their account holder. If there were a better student base that went to their site, I'd have more clients. Of course, when you have zero, you can only go up right?
