I sent them a message because I don't think I've been getting the shared deals or affiliates that I should be. I have not heard back yet, but it has not been long. I used to get credit for shared links in my MM, but haven't been getting them for awhile. I wish we had more say in the way this community is run, but we don't have any leverage at all, so.... Truly sorry to hear about your problem. If its anything like the rest of the issues i have seen people talk about here, it will probably get handled the same way :( which is, just deal with it.

Welcome to the club ! I was also banned from Money Maker program without any REASON,from my point of view : Mod:"We noticed suspicious behavior in your posts and excessive posts from amazon.com." I have posted deals on this site since april 2010 and it was not a problem.Amazon is the most trusted site and the deal and what mean excessive posts? I have submitted this 3 years ~ 3k deals.I have spent hours to post deals from this site on social networks ,giving them a lots of SEO juice (for connaiseurs). I'm member of MM just from two months. In 1st month I was having something like 126$(received 25.48$ via paypal) and 163$, 2nd month.So they banned my MM account and they own me ~ 260$ (it's not really about money,it's about INJUSTICE).What have to do the work to promote dealsplus.com for money and posting deals???? So, I think they really don't want to pay if you have potential to earn and anyone is in DANGER to loose the money. 2 emails I have sent them and no ANSWER,after 1st email where mod gave an example that deal was an awesome deal !!! Now, I'm sure my account will be banned after revealing the truth ! Good luck to everyone !
MOD : DON'T DELETE MY POST,DON'T BAN my account,just for revealing the truth,because is need to SOLVE THIS problem for all of us!!!!

@supercouponingmo Their MM terms says "...if dealsplus determines that you may have violated the terms and conditions of dealsplus or the Money Makers Program, dealsplus may, in its sole discretion, terminate your account, reduce your account balance to zero or refuse payment to you, without compensation." So as you seen, "in its sole discretion" they can terminate the account? Sole discretion?Very convenient...It's simple if you have lots of money in account,they can ban you without any explanations,and you remain just with work :). Ok,I understand that Google ban acounts for clicking your own links,but there the ads are contextual. Even Google, understand that you click your ads 4-5 times from mistake,and send warnings !!!
How can you be banned from what I understand ?
1.Posting a deal which is not a deal. So,what is a DEAL? As I know is a price drop from original price at a moment(they says need to be more than 3%) but seen may peoples posting just ONE PRICE (because IS A DEAL if the product have quality and price is GOOD !!!
2.Posting excessive from a site .
They let you to post deals from trusted sites ...So if you want to post thousands of deals/day what is the problem? It is a limit? My posts alays saying are moderated? So,why mods are not making the job,warn me,or delete posts which they don't like. Why is not a limit of posting and sharing ??? It's not this site about posting DEALS?
3.If you post your MM links on social networks,what is the problem??? It's not MM about making money posting deals with your refferal ID,commenting on other deals(for SEO purposes),posting coupons? So if you want to share your ref link on thousands of sites,it's a problem???
If there are not REAL RULES from dealpl.us money maker program, how they can terminate the account??? Supposition? Suspicions?
I'm really curious about mods answers....

Just a thought. In order to participate in affiliate programs for certain stores, dealsplus.com would have to agree to the anti- spam act and if found to break the rules, they can have their relationship terminated with the store, thus losing revenue. There are a lot of rules that they have to agree to and they do have to make sure that we follow those rules, too. Just wondering if this might apply.

I was also kick out of the MM program because I shared the premium .15 on a site that has VERY high traffic. I made like $700 in an hour. The post wasn't even up more than that. At the end of the month they told me I had fraudulent clicks. I still have the letter they sent
"We appreciate your participation on dealsplus.com and the Money Maker program, but we will have to inactivate your Money Maker status due to fraudulent clicks. On January 11th 2013, your account shows explicit signs of fraudulent clicking activity. Participants may not intentionally click Money Makers links with the goal of increasing revenue for themselves or someone else.
Any earnings you have accumulated since your last Money Maker payment will not be rewarded.
Before I posted the link on this site I asked a mod about it and they told me the more I share the more I will make. So the purpose of this site is to get free labor from the community. Once you find a way to make money on here they will get rid of you so they don't have to pay. I also lost out on the previous months earnings which I NEEDED to pay a bill.
My question is... If you don't want us to make money from the MM program, then why have it? Or you just want to have a reasonable amount to pay?
@ArtemisDeals,I strongly agreed with you ! ...All the deals posted by me were on social networks where just real peoples, interested by deals clicked. As I have seen on my lost MM account,max 5$ maked an reff deal sharing but the majority received under 1$. "There is no limit on how much you can earn from dealsplus.com, the more your find & share, the more you make!"... this is the funny part !The more you share? :))))) Than moderators have not read the MM terms... they consider this paragraph(the more your find & share, the more you make!) "excesive or suspicious posting".
Hey, if sky is the limit,why not share refferal link everywhere to earn more money? Smell like a BIG SCAM !!!

@mdavidk30 I apologize. Nothing about her username is masculine or feminine. I didn't mean anything by it, so you can get off her high horse. I don't follow her on facebook despite all the great worn she must do to help people save money. so just get that clear
