Shop-a-dockets

When you go shopping in the likes of Coles etc, you usually find on the back of the receipt some 'shop-a-docket' vouchers. Most are in the 'whatever' category, but frequently there will be one that looks interesting, but you only get half of it. Sort of like when you drop toast it always lands butter/jam/vegemite side down!

Anyhow, in case you didn't know you can go to their website and view & print *all* the current vouchers. Can be good if you're travelling as well, as you can scan for deals that are valid in the location you're planning to go to!

From their website.

With more than 25 years in the community and around 100 staff, you can be satisfied knowing that Shop A Docket is an ethical and secure company. Speaking of decades – more than a quarter of our staff have been at Shop A Docket for over 10 years – that number speaks for itself. And it’s not only our staff who are stayers. We pride ourselves on our long term advertiser relationships – a testament to our excellent service.

This company amazes me. They seem to be a really big company with very little impact for some reason. For example, their web traffic is a small fraction of what TopBargains gets and they have been going on for last 25 years. The only fundamental difference seems to be the fact that they charge big companies whether or not they send them any traffic and deal sites & forums that actually generate traffic don't get paid a penny :)

shopadockets is basically all advertising, no user submitted deals, just advertised offers from companies themselves.

deals sites are user posts from users' point of view and what they think are bargains compared to being fed by companies hence deal sites have more trust and popularity.

Thing is, as much as it might seem weird to us netizens, a lot of people simply don't know about or search for deals on the internet. A lot of them use these shop-a-dockets (or similar direct snail-mail advertising) instead. I can well understand that their site doesn't get hit a lot, as it's not their target market....
