About Cookies

Our mission is a straightforward one:

To bring you the best possible discounts so you can make the most of your money.
Achieving this isn’t that simple though. On average we add thousands of offers a week to the site and work with some two thousand different brands!

How do we use cookies?

When you or anyone else use one of our vouchers we earn a small commission from the brands we work with. To do this we place a cookie onto your computer when you visit a retailer from our website, if you then go on to buy something, the cookie identifies you as having come from our site and we earn our commission.

It’s also important to note that not everyone pays us a commission, but we’re happy to list their vouchers to ensure we’re always bringing you the best possible discounts.

Other ways we use cookies

As well as using cookies to ensure we earn our commission we use cookies during the registration process, to modify the site’s appearance based on your preferences or user history and to record usage statistics. In every instance we use cookies to make your experience while using DiscountHunterz.co.uk as pleasurable as possible.
