I've been getting spam containing that URL and other 'sisters'
(such as "dealstoday.net").

They have major spam-sign hallmarks:

The payload is a few lines of HTML that reference images with the
ad "message" and then massive amounts of "Bayes poison" hidden by
HTML comments or CSS tricks (style="visibility:hidden"), bogus HTML
(large  amounts of text after the closing </HTML> tag),
as well as being sent to stale local addresses.

Examples available upon request. ;)
