If the price you update is LOWER then yes you do get credit for updating the post. To answer your 2nd question, us moderators approve the update so just because your image is on the deal doesn't necessarily mean you get the credit for updating the deal.

So if I update a post and it is lower than the original, but my pic (or lack thereof in my case :-)) is NOT on the deal, I should still getting credit for it?
The confusion is this. I updated one this morning, but the original poster's pic is represented by both pics on the deal....but the time on my comment was an hour before his/her activity as represented by the time stamp on the picture.
