“This is 100 percent a team award, which includes not only our people in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and around the country, but also our community of 11 million users who help us find all these great deals every day,” said Meyers. “Our crowdsourced approach to uncovering the best deals is what has propelled us to become among the most visited shopping destinations in the U.S., and the unique value we have created for consumers is an achievement that belongs to our community and our team.”
Slickdeals is a top five promotional marketing partner for the Internet Retailer 500 and celebrated over 1 billion annual visits in 2018.
Meyers added, “Slickdeals celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and I’m extremely proud of the way we’ve been able to introduce rapid change and growth into the business over the last few years, while also honoring the history of the company and the culture.”
