nthsll, I am very new to this but I do the same thing. If it is the exact item from the exact store, even if it expired long ago, I just edit. But if it's a different item, I would say it's a different deal. It sucks (I'm impatient to get the deal out there) to wait until a mod approves it as 'not a duplicate' but at least it keeps the system honest.

I definitly prefer a mod review than to duplicate. From what I can tell, the mods are very efficient and pretty much on top of all postings. One fixed my original posting and sent me a PM in the 20 minute drive in to work this morning.
I would like to hear from some of the veterans. If there is something I'm missing that doesn't cause the mods to have to review what is obviously a different deal.
I can say not every thing shows up as a dup. I posted a deal from 13 deals the other day, and a few hours later some one else posted the same day but added a code that lowered the price. I didn't flag it or post dup on it because I was so unsure of what action to take, lets just say mine sat there with 4 plus and the other if I am not mistaken went to front page. So who knows the right thing to do
