Deal Question : Bare Necessities Deal

submitted on January 29, 2010 by orangearrows in "Buxr Website / Contests"
I originally posted this deal

http://www.buxr.com/deal/bare-.....upon_43307

and it was rejected as a duplicate of

http://www.buxr.com/deal/bare-.....ping_42007

How is that?

It's 50% clearance now.

I thought it was supposed to be a sale as mentioned in the comments so I re-submitted the deal as a SALE and it was rejected again as DUPE to the deal I was submitted.

Can admins please explain this

thanks

O

    Here is the deal I submitted as a SALE

    http://www.buxr.com/deal/bare-.....upon_43315

    It was rejected as being a DUPE to my own deal which I submitted as a coupon

    My guess is because the coupons codes are the same.

    I'd send an email as I believe its a mistake.

    While the coupon code is the same the SALE is different, 30% vs. 50%. Which was why I reported as inaccurate... to get it changed from coupon to sale, not to get it rejected.

      I understand your point and agreed with it. That's the reason I re-submitted the deal as a SALE but .....no action yet.

      Email has been sent

    The coupon code is the same and it hasn't been 30 days since it expired. We have a rule in place to avoid repeat resubmissions which essentially says you can re-submit a coupon/sale that uses the same code only after 30 days past the previous coupon/sale expiration. Here is a relevant discussion:

    I think i understand this.

    You put up the deal and it was rejected to the 30% off one the first time. That was correct.

    Then you resubmitted it, and it was again rejected but this time it was rejected to your own previous rejection. I understand the mentality behind that cause you had just submitted it but in reality it was still a rejection to the 30% off deal.

    The reason it was rejected was cause the code you used was already in play in another deal posted by someone else and as Yan states, the 30 day rule applies.

    What you could have done to not get a rejection is this:

    List your deal as 50% off which is not a dupe to anything but do not mention the FS code in any part of the deal submission process.

    In the comments you can mention the FS and link to the 30% off deal so people can reference that for the FS coupon.

    Lot of deals reuse codes ( secondary use). Those are not rejected. When I resubmitted this deal it was submitted as a sale and sale was for 50%. There is not 50% sale for bare necc.

    Deal should have been accepted.

      can you cite the deals that you say are using the same codes within the 30 day period? Also in addition to the 30 day rule, if the code used has an expiration clearly stated in the deal it can't be used again even though 30 days may have passed.

      Example: I post a deal today for $5 off at Macy's and i say the code expires on 12/31/10.

      Now, 60 days pass by and someone else submits the same deal with the same code. It will be rejected as a duplicate because even though 30 days have passed, the original deal has an expiration date clearly stated.

      There was a code for 15% Target . Used the same code in a TV deal. Applied the code there.

      Well if the code is the main part if the deal and is resubmitted within 30 days ..I agree it will get rejected. But if it's adding value to another deal ( as a secondary element) why should the main deal get rejected?

    Orange, if the original deal submitter used the code as a coupon or even as as a product, that code can be used again in another product deal but it cannot be used again in a sale type deal or coupon.

    The target deal you cite i believe was originally listed as a coupon so your submission for the tv with the same code was proper. But had you used it again as a coupon/sale it would have been rejected.

    Read the topic discussion Yan cites, hopefully that will clear some things up for you. And if it doesn't post again and we'll be happy to address any other questions/concerns you may have.

    OK, so I want to verify this as well. I'm not sure however I think the issue may be misunderstanding.

    As the previous post by best4u was a 30% off sale Plus a free shipping coupon. The coupon was extended true.

    However oranges deal is for a 50% off sale. With the free shipping coupon. I agree the coupon would be a dupe. However the sale is not.

    Wouldn't best case leave the coupon on and make the post a sale with the coupon just being something extra (like when a product uses an already posted coupon) or worst case remove the coupon part from the posting and just make the post a 50% off sale. Then orange can make a post in comments to best4us coupon code as an additional bonus.

    Orange, the correct way to have posted this deal is to not have included the code. Just post the 50% off sale and then refer to the other deal for the free shipping code. Meaning post your deal and say:

    You can get free shipping by using the free shipping code in this deal: http://www.buxr.com/deal/bare-.....ping_42007

    Posting it in this manner, probably would be allowed.

    Am I correct Yan, Mike or SD?

      JackBauer is correct. Removing the 'free shipping' code from the title and instructions would have solved the problem. It is OK to link to the free shipping code in the comments

      To clarify the code re-use:
      1. Coupon codes can be re-used in product submissions
      2. Coupon codes cannot be re-used in 'coupon' and 'sale' submissions.

      OrangeArrows, if you entered the free shipping code into the correct field (as you should have), Buxr would not have allowed your submission to go through

      Well when I re-submitted it as a sale item I just mentioned it as a code in the description.

      How about this deal > http://www.buxr.com/deal/panas.....+PANASONIC

      I re-used the code which was previously submitted. Code was submitted as coupon , I used as a Product

      Here code was submitted as a coupon

      I used as a Sale.

      You can re-use previously submitted codes in products but not in other coupon or sale submissions
