MrBklynW explained it pretty well. He posted the deal first and since it was a duplicate deal because all daily deals are, it needs a moderator's approval. The reason why you didn't see it when you search for the deal is because it needed a moderators approval which could take up to an hour. There are a lot of other users who also posted the same daily deals during this time frame.
A good way to see who posted the deal first is by the post id#.
your post id#726983

It does get frustrating at times when the top posters gets their deal out first but I got used to it. They got their system down and I don't think its fair to ask how they do it unless they want to share. It's taking away $ for their efforts and for some it may be a big part of their income. Sure, I would love to post FP deals, but lately have always been beaten to the punch on almost every deal I post. It's all good. So if they beat me to a post, kudos to them. If you can figure it out or come out with a better way to earn more FP posts and start earning more $, would you let someone take it away from you by telling them how to do it?

@chuckydealpl; agreed. I used to get a fair number of FP's before the moneymakers program, but since then I have sort of given up trying to beat the big players to new posts. They definitively have a great system, or are doing it nearly full time.
Either way, I don't mind that much. I like this site, and the primary reason I use it is to find the best price on stuff. And all the competition has only made it better for that.

you have to live on slickdeals, sort the hot deal forum by recent topcs and keep hitting refresh. Thats how they do it. Oh and sign up for a few hundreds email alerts that you check all day. Not sure who would want to do this but I guess those who like to say they work from home.

I am pretty sure the big posters are doing this as a full time job. You can't be so active here and have a A-game all the time unless you got nothing else to do. With a full time job and no kids I still don't have more than 1 hour a day to be on here!
It sure does get very annoying when every deal you post is already on here but that's life! I sometimes actually think that dealspl might as well call itself amazon.com....there is barely any product from amazon that is not already listed on here! lol
Oh well...may be when I retire in the next 40 years or so, I will do this full time and beat the big poster at every post....till then they can enjoy the reign :D

I learned months ago you will never beat some users here lol...no need to name them :) I just gave up and still try to post whatever I find around..I dont mess with daily deals since they seem to be automatic for certain users as well :) Good Luck to you dont give up
