Update [5/20]: Phase 3 is live. We've updated the store & brand deal feeds, which are now identical to the home page design. 


Update [5/07]: Phase 2 is live. We have updated the deal page, updating to a line graph for retail / sale price history and expanded the deal history below that.


Update [4/13]: The first phase is complete! Refresh to see Ben's big makeover and please let us know if you notice anything buggy.

Hey Ben's Fans! Hope you're having a good...Wednesday? Thursday? Oh who knows what day it is anymore!

We wanted to give you a heads up that we will be rolling out a new "responsive" redesign for the site, with the first phase starting in about a week or two. Responsive design is a type of web design that keeps the look / feel / experience of the site identical across every screen type; desktop, tablet or smartphone.

The main changes to the Ben's experience will be noticed on the mobile side. In addition to faster load times (yay!!!), other mobile improvements will include:

  • The ability to “Go to Store” directly from the deal feed
  • The ability to click a drop-down in the deal feed to see the description / info related to the deal
  • The ability to keep your location in the deal feed. All deal details can be expanded / read without leaving the feed


You can read more about the details of the redesign at our blog. Let us know if you have any questions in the comments.

Stay safe and stay well!

Can you bring back the "Posted at HH:MM:SS ago by *"? I don't prefer the "Posted # hours/minutes ago by *". Use UTC?

"Can I please have a couple thumbs up/down to give out?"

We're looking forward to restoring this feature in a future release! It won't happen at the same time as the new design, but it's in the works.

Halle-freakin-lujah! I'm expecting big things from you guys. BIG things. This is indeed 2020, mobile or die! Improved speed, no duplicate post displays when the cache/buffer is reached in-app, no missing post pictures, fixed comment counters, and for the sake of Pete... an edit button for comments, the return of the thumbs up/down system??? I will give each of you a Corona-free hug if you make my BB dreams come true.

Wait... After reading the blog I think I'm disappointed? When you said "mobile side" above, You really meant mobile web UI / interface and not the mobile app, right? If so.... I hope the app is gonna be worked on next. Apps is where it's at....
