    how do they update it so quickly and find the deals so rapidly? i know half of them are referral links but it seems like the people running the site somehow know when a good deal/semi good deal is going to happen. Also, other sites similar to that like http://dealnews.com/ , http://www.dealcatcher/ , http://dealmac.com/ are also very similar and have a lot of the same products for sale.

    btw you think deals2buy uses movable text?

    It says in their FAQ.

    How deals make the news


    dealnews investigates literally hundreds of deals each day. Every deal starts with a reader tip, submission from a merchant, or staff research. Once one of our writers gets a “lead,” he or she investigates it both objectively and subjectively:
    Objectively: Is it valid? Is it the lowest price available for that item?​

    Subjectively: Is it a good price compared to similar items? Is it from a reputable seller? And would anyone want to buy one of these anyway?​
    If a deal passes these tests, it’s turned into “dealnews”.

    The sites you mentioned are similar because:

    dealnews®, dealmac®, dealcam®, and dealram® are registered trademarks of dealnews.com(basically the same people running the show)

    This should answer your questions
