Yes and no. Sometimes you get to deals in other ways (not just emails), and sometimes the links in the email are specific to your email address (eg, they have your email address in the url).
I think the best way is to just do a quick search for the item on dealsplus. If you see it, you can update it, otherwise you can post it fresh as long as it doesn't show up as a dupe while posting.
Happy deal hunting!

The best thing you can do is always do a quick search. Try this searching method on dealsplus.com, it makes things go a lot faster:
Ex) Let's say you found a good gps deal on best buy and you want to search to see if it is a duplicate.
Type: "site:bestbuy gps"
This will really narrow your search and make finding duplicates faster and easier. Hope that helps.

well many times I have done simple quick searches, especially for email deals where it is a page full of deals and nothing comes up. Yet when you post, it has already been posted and haters send you 1000 messages saying to do searches first. First, mods like Acarone already monitor these things and do not give credit to duplicate deals. Second, people should stop trying to be e-police and let mods do their magic.
