About cookies

How we use cookies

When you or any Savoo site visitor clicks on one of our vouchers and are taken to a retailer’s site and then go ahead and make a purchase, we earn a small commission as the referring merchant partner. 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.

We also list thousands of vouchers for retailers we don’t have an affiliate relationship with and do not earn a commission from resulting sales, we are an open deals community and always list the UK’s best deals as sourced by our deal team or contributed by our members.

Other ways we use cookies

In addition to using cookies to ensure we earn our commission, we use cookies during the registration/sign-in process, to modify the site’s appearance and behavior during multivariate tests, and to record usage statistics. We are simply using these cookies to help us improve your site experience.

This explains how the business works, how it affects you and who some of the players are.
