Celebrating Our Three Year Blog Anniversary

Long time readers will know it’s not really our three year blog anniversary, we’ve actually been around for more like four years. But the reason I titled this post as such is because three years ago we made the decision to remove all the credit card affiliate links from the site. If you haven’t read the post detailing our reasons behind that change before, I really recommend you do.

One of the great things to come out of that decision was that we’ve been able to build a community around this site, as readers have been more willing to share information/deals with us and each other. I think part of that comes from the fact that we try to put our readers first and part of it comes from the fact that we’re willing to listen to our readers and adjust the site based on their feedback (whether it be positive feedback or constructive criticism). I never thought we’d have the audience and reach we do when I first started out and I’m committed to try to use that to improve the lives of the readers.

I’m also eternally grateful for finding Chuck. Without him it’s likely that I’d no longer be blogging and it’s a privilege getting to read his content on this site. I’m also thrilled to have Sirtheta & Don L adding their unique takes on a regular basis. The biggest thanks must be left to each and every reader, especially if you’ve ever left a helpful comment or shared a deal or some insider knowledge. Without the regular contributions of readers this site would not be what it is today. If you’re a regular reader and have never commented/shared a deal, please don’t be a stranger!

Thanks for reading and indulging me on this selfish post and here’s to three more years!

Happy Anniversary! There is a reason DoC is known as the Gold Standard in this community.

On one hand, there’s DoC. And on the other, there’s TPG “2017 Citi Prestige exclusive(!!) destination/champion/king of affiliate links and lord commander of all 75k Prestige referrals for 2 exclusive weeks, the Master-of-SellOuts”. Yea, I think I’ll bend the knee for DoC.

Exactly. I was just going to mention this. I was looking for the biggest sign-up bonus last week on a card (can’t remember which one) and the TPG article had a bonus at HALF that amount and talked it up like it was the holy grail. Can’t trust them.

Eschewing cc affiliate links and focusing on original content are probably the smartest moves you made!

I remember checking out this site in your early days when you first started promoting it (I saw your links on Fatwallet Finance) It came across as just another cc affiliate site that regurgitated others’ content and added no real value.

About a year later other blogs were linking to you often enough that I checked out the site again and found you’d really improved. Now I check the site almost daily and refer others regularly.

Congrats and keep up the good work!
