Our quality supervisors

Our team of quality supervisors works on behalf of the Los Angeles Times to oversee the content on LA Times Compare and ensure it aligns with our Los Angeles Times quality standards.

They review each coupon to make sure it resonates with the interests and demographics of the Los Angeles Times audience. With categories like home decor & furniture, dining & food delivery, electronics and online services, you can be sure to find deals tailored to your preferences.

Additionally, these supervisors carefully select specific coupons to highlight on our website. These specially chosen recommendations are labeled as “Selected by L.A. Times Team.”

Our content managers

Our content managers each focus on a specific category, spanning from fitness and beauty to electronics and online services. Within these areas, they effortlessly shift between the roles of author, content producer, and page reviewer to bring you the latest deals from your favorite brands.

They start by conducting thorough research on each brand, which enables them to create content that provides valuable insights into how to save. Each piece of content goes through thorough self-quality control measures and meticulous reviews to guarantee accuracy and reliability. Additionally, they regularly verify each coupon by hand to ensure they are valid and up-to-date.

At the heart of their work lies a commitment to delivering high-quality content that empowers you to make informed decisions and maximize your savings. With their dedication and expertise, our content managers strive to make your shopping experience both rewarding and enjoyable.
