I'm on Safari iPhone
1. When scrolling down touching an expired deal it goes back to color until I touch a different place on the screen.
2. I think the DansDeals banner should stay sticked to the top, so when scrolling down it's always there (I like this style).
3. I defiantly like  the first OP link option better.
4. TU/TD feature that was talked about, is that over?
5. The navy on white I don't like, I think it needs a bit more color.
6. Fonts are very plain.
I'll leave some for others... 😉
Thanks Dan/JJ/Suave and everyone that's working on this great idea

One more important suggestion:
The words DansDeals in the banner is tiny

Galaxy S5 Chrome browser

The black buttons under shopping deals with the names of stores etc is very small and difficult to select a store. The drop down arrow is almost impossible to select and then the drop down list forget about even trying... (maybe just my pudgy fingers...didn't think they were)

Please no! It's a pet peeve of mine! While it's a very cool feature, it's a HUGE waste of valuable screen real-estate.

With this tiny "DansDeals" which you can barely read?...
Honestly that Amex banner is a bigger waste, but that's advertisement, if you ask me since you already change the headlines to run one after the other the ads can go in between, it's gonna make the overall experience a lot better

If anyone paid attention, I made a smarter sticky header, when you scroll down a page and then scroll back up (even slightly) the header will appear so you don't have to scroll back to top.

I see it now, it's good, the problem is that there is a 1 second wait for the header to appear

The tabs in under some of the categories (especially under the "Dining & Travel" category) need to really be revamped. There's no clear cut line as to what is a category and what is a specific.

For example: Brazil and Hawaii are too specific. If they are about TRs to those places they should be under the Trip Notes tab. If it's about general info of these places then there should be a "Destinations" tab with submenus to all various destinations available. (IOW why Brazil and Hawaii of all places  ???)

really great job, Suave. Is this a totally, 100% custom made website, or is this using templates and/or Wordpress?

GREAT! (and thanks for not having the entire banner pop back down.)

Not by me. (Firefox on windows)

Same thing is with Hyatt. It should either go under the "hotel deals" tab or there should be two separate tabs "Hotels" and "Hotel Deals".

Beautiful!!

A few things:
1) Before "CREDIT CARDS SHOPPING DEALS AIRFARE DEALS DINING & TRAVEL DANíS COMMENTARY" there should be a HOME button

2) I'm sure some visitors would appreciate a "tour" when they first access the new site, explaining what changed and where they can find everything.

3) Over here:

It looks like "latest posts" is one of the choices, when really it's a header for "all/creditcards/shopping deals" etc. This is confusing. Maybe by default "All" should be highlighted to show that it's selected, and when you choose another one that should get highlighted.

4) I think there should be an About page explaining what DD is and who it's for
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Latest best practice is not to have a separate home link (you can click on the logo)

If your on a desktop, you can try the "explore new features link" when you are on the homepage above the logo (still a bit buggy though)
