In fact, CNET currently displays some of their deals on CNET Shopper. For instance, look at the bottom of http://shopper.cnet.com/tech-deals/ and you'll see the partnership logo. Just note that CNET and DealNews do not offer deals themselves, but instead search for the best deals from hundreds of stores, aggregating them so users can find them listed in one central location.

Hope this helps,
John
