Why did BUXR refuse my deal for M&M's free chocolate Friday?

submitted on July 25, 2009 by fiesta1018 in "Buxr Website / Contests"
It doesn't make any sense to me why BUXR refused this submission, calling it a duplicate. The first time it was submitted was 79 days ago, two months ago. Who amongst us remembers every Friday to go to the site? The company is giving out a free candy bar to the first 250,000 that go to their website every Friday. I believe it should be a new deal every Friday, 9 a.m. Reposting would remind those of us who don't think of candy every Friday.

Every other site lists it every Friday.

I would like to hear what others think.
Idea
besides, does this do anything to my numbers or credibility? I list sales here to share with others not so much to win, but I wouldn't want to seem not credible.

    Just flag it as alive (or just comment to it) to bring it up in the list and to everyone's attention. I see little value to Buxr and to our community in creating a new deal (each Friday) that would essentially copy the old one

    What is the big deal about posting in every Friday? Have you checked other sites, because I believe they are posting every Friday. Why not ask the community if they need to be reminded every Friday?

      Like he said if you comment or flag it as alive every friday and it will pop up at the beginning of the page. It takes less time to do that then it does to submit a deal likewise so it should be a little easier.

    I now understand how to prevent this from occurring on deals that I submit. What if someone else submits the deal? I do check if someone recently submitted a deal that I will submit, but not two months.

      Seriously it's really not that hard. There is something called a search box on this site that when you type stuff into it, it will magically show you everything with those words in it, pretty neat huh? Sometimes you still end up posting a duplicate deal but typically if you search first, you are in the clear. And besides if you are not in it for money, why does it bother you so bad that your deal didn't get submitted?

    I understand that you all are trying to be helpful. Every deal that I submit, I do look to see if it has been submitted before. M&M's when searched results in no hits.

      I wanted to add that considering it is the chocolate relief act where you can choose multiple candy bars, that you should search for chocolate or relief and not just M&M's.

      Just want to add that regular search offers limited results (only those that were submitted or commented on in the past 3 months). If you don't see what you are looking for then click on the link at the bottom of search results that says:

      Don't find what you are looking for? Search older deals or setup a deal alert!


      This will search deals up to 1 year old!
