I checked before submitting the $79 Kindle with special offers. The site was slow, and none came up, but there are tons now. Hopefully the mods will check the timestamps and consolidate them all.

not really. Some of the people who like to do this just to help others, do check for dupes. But most of the people who are here for the money only don't really care. People jocky for putting deals in and even put them in other categories to get away with it. This site is a good site, just a few bad seeds is all.
It ain't all about the money, I have fun here and I have met many nice people too:) I do check for dups when I know a site that the system doesn't detect. I do my part by flagging dups too when I see them.

I check for duplicates but sometimes they either don't show before I post it or I guess the key words weren't the same. I always double check an hour or so after I post and, if I find a dup (that was submitted first), I flag my post and/or mark it as expired and also put a link to the original post in the comments. I think "News" posts are often tricky because, unlike specific deals, you can (sometimes) get the news from various sites

Yes, MrBklynW. I have seen you doing the right things and thats nice. Like i said, some of the people who like to do this just to help others, do check for dupes and thats really cool. I just hope that some people will read this question and become more aware. I know you can't catch them all, but some people don't even try. They know who they are, and some of the people who are here often know who they are too. I am just trying to bring awareness to the problem.
hehe...i'm glad you notice=) I completely agree with what you, hopefully some people will be more aware of what they post.

It is probably because they all came from different stores or different URLs or something was different in the text? It should pop up if it is a duplicate on the site.

I dont understand why so many duplicates if they URL is CLEAN a certain way (which they all should) there should not be 7 or 10 of the same deals based on URL by itself title should not matter but like everything in life url cleaning might not be perfect here either :)

Bump. Sad to see this is from 2011 and we are still dealing with the same issues.

Reminder for everyone,
- Even if the product & price is the same, as long as they are from a different store(s)/url, we will consider it a unique deal.
- If the offer is from the same store/url, please edit/update instead of creating new > Keep in mind that not all updates will be approved.

Oh my god! Cannot believe that i was just 9 years old when peeps were arguing about duplicates back in 2011.
Btw this comment section is way informative :)
