TopTenReviews.com includes Ben’sBargains.net in the number #4 spot for the hottest deal sites in 2011. It cites great features of Ben’s Bargains as the reason why. Some of which include the deals you can find (of course), how the deals are listed (accurate, up to date, and with more detailed information than what other sites feature), a unique presentation of deals, a great resource for coupons, the presence of a mobile content area, a forum community and message board, and a section for free stuff.
The deal presentation makes it stand out against the rest of the deals and coupons site. Each deal is uniquely presented with snippets found on the main page. As we thought so, Ben is not alone anymore. He’s got hands helping him out. Members can actually submit deals and their usernames will be reflected on each deal submitted.
Each item presented by registered users is given a discussion link so other members can be able to talk about it. You can also vote up the deal as a good deal or watch it and see how far it progresses. The hotness section tells you about the item’s status based on users votes. The price history button even lets you see how the item’s price had changed over time as seen on the website. The "Click Here" button actually displays other entries showing the same product. Clicking on the title brings you to the source of the deal.
