Announcing CheapTweet, a Twitter-based deals site

Shopping, Social software

Looking for good shopping deals this week?  Interested in finding online coupons and great Black Friday discounts?  You should check out CheapTweet, Appozite’s new Twitter-based deals site.

How does it work?

CheapTweet scans Twitter for the deals, coupons and sales people are tweeting about.  It then collects them in one place for you to peruse and use (and just in time for the holiday shopping season).

CheapTweet lets users rate deals by clicking on the blue It’s Cheap button next to a deal to indicate they think it’s a good deal. Users can also rate something as not a good deal with the It’s Lame button. Deals move to the Cheapest Tweets section if they become popular by getting enough votes. Users can also categorize and retweet deals, making them more useful for other users.  It’s quick and easy to get an account, and from there, you can rate, categorize and interact with the deals as much as you want!

CheapTweet also uses the power of Twitter to rate deals. If lots of people talk about a deal, CheapTweet tracks that information, which contributes to a deal getting on the Cheapest Tweets list. Plus, we’re filtering out spammers.

How do I get my Tweets included?

Most of the time just tweeting about a good deal is enough. However, if you’re a retailer or merchant, be sure to follow @cheaptweetbot on Twitter so we can keep track of all the deals and discounts you tweet about and include you more frequently.

So, go to CheapTweet and check it out. And happy shopping!

Update: CheapTweet was mentioned in an article on MSNBC today!
