I use slickdeals because I think i has better access to coupon codes while I think fatwallet is easier to search, just my opinion though

Fatwallet is where I first cut my HD teeth. Slickdeals seems to get the newer deals a bit quicker, and with the hottest deals, timing is everything, but fatwallet has a much nicer layout since they don't use that annoying msg board system that AT is about to switch to.

Accidentally voted for FW when I wanted to vote for SD. Front Page Deals are easier to me, and my head begins to asplode when I browse deal forums.

I use both. Slickdeals has more deals listed, especially computer parts. Fatwallet has a way better design though; I mostly go there for the finance section.

I cannot stand the Fatwallet forums. They are absolutely hideous (credit goes to dbk at ATOT ).

Fatwallet is more a busniess. Slickdeals is much cleaner and easy to navigate, though I don't like slickdeal's front page so much since if you click on a deal on the front page it just expands every deal on the front page and you have to find it again.

Fatcash can be a big asset too. No reason we can't use both sites - I'm sure all dealmongers do use both.

ps also I hate that little guy/banner that shows up at the bottom of FW now if you're not logged in. Also, logging into fatwallet seems to be a huge pain in the ass sometimes.

fatwallet for finance info and occasionally for hot deals/travel deals. hideous forums, both new and old style. I suffer through on the old style.

Slickdeals for culling through the deals and presenting them on the frontpage, along with up and coming topics. Easy to search through if I'm looking for something specific but otherwise mostly a front page browser.

Slickdeals is just overall a more pleasant place to be -- not as many douchebags running around. Although I still use the Fatcash Firefox plugin to score quick access to Fatcash on sites

If you go through the link at FW, after signing up for FC, then you get a % back from your purchase. Kinda liek the Live.com deal but works better. [i]
