      No psplove I didn't wrote that.
      I have seen that if we have different barcodes numbers those are accepted as different deals.

      I really don't remember about yours which was rejected. But you mentioned those were different codes as well but was rejected by mistake. We cannot do anything about that. From now we should be more attentive before flagging for duplicates especially in similar types of deals.

    Now after going thru the Payless deal which I posted and the deal link posted by psplove both sure were different codes.
    Yan had rejected your deal may be because it was posted next day only or ....
    But we have so many deals of same offer same store like kohls, ulta and few more.

    Truly speaking I prefer we add codes and instore coupons to the deal which was posted first (if it has same offer and expiry date.)

      Yes, if the coupon offers the same discount and has the same expiration date I would prefer you to add it to the previous deal, especially if you submit it within hours of the original deal.

      Yan! If I got rejected. Other deal should be rejected too. My deal was flag by CouponNut too. He/She should know these deals are same offer & same expiry date.

      I remember a while ago members submitted long coupon codes to some Friends and Family sale. I think it was Puma but I am not sure now. There was about 10 or them total. Why do we want to have them all as separate deals? It just makes no sense?

      psplove, you submitted your Payless deal within hours of the original one. In the context of the first submission it brought little value to Buxr and so I opted to reject it and instead add the link to the original deal.

      Please do not feel that you are targeted. Admins are doing what makes sense the most for the Buxr community. Contests aside, serving the community is what Buxr is all about. I believe I have done the right thing back then and I will do it again no matter who's the submitter.

      I didn't say "hour", I said "hours". Wink

      The original deal was posted - 03/16 12:54 PM
      Your deal was posted - 03/17 05:38 AM

      The difference is roughly 17 hours.

    The coupon submitted today has different URL, code, and is part of a different promotion than the one submitted by bemicmom 17 days ago, thus it qualifies as a new deal.

    Even though I prefer the submitter to update the original deal I will keep the today's coupon since the original was posted over two weeks apart and today's submission a good refresher about the promotion.

      Yan. Did you see the coupon that I posted was different URL and code also. So why you rejected?

      What's different between two day or two weeks. Same start and expiry date. that's same offer.
