Anyone Else Having Their Deals or Freebies Duplicated by the Same People

Ask a Question

I don't know about you guys but twice now I've had really good deals on here but a few hours later, it's been repeated by someone else... For example I put a Chanel free samples on yesterday morning for Debenhams Beauty Club and I got 4 likes and two comments but this morning when I looked my ad had been replaced by someone else hours later but now the same ad is trending!!! But when I repeat someone else's deal, I'm told I cannot repeat and the points taken away!! Help.. frustrating or what

If someone has duplicated your deal, you need to report it. Admin will then take it down.

I can see it pages back... but mines got 5 likes search Chanel n you'll see mine.. I'm not sure I think they might've taken the other persons down now.. they got to 60 likes... Just doesn't seem very fair to me kwim TheChimp

keepitjijjy I just searched Chanel on the app and your post came up first. I didn't see a duplicate.

Is it the one for mascara?

Thats it.. the other one was something like Iven.. Something or other but repeated ad that's just been taken down. I don't understand how their ad was trending 60 likes etc.. whilst mine was pages behind.what I'd like to know is how their Ad was able to be left up there all that time.. when my repeated posts don't make it past first base..@TheChimp

Hi Jasmine111.. what I mean is this.. I posted the free Chanel samples yesterday morning for debenhams beauty club then this morning my same deal was repeated by someone else, I reported it but it was still getting the 60 likes and trending, whilst my ad had disappeared!! now if I would've been the one repeating,I always get a message back from Latest Deals saying I'm sorry you can't repeat.. I reported early this morning that someone had repeated my ad yet nothing was done about it.. And what makes it even sender is it seems to happen when the freebie is trending.. that's what I meant

The timestamp on mine shows I posted mine well before their ad.. it's happened to me twice now.. but I know what you mean because I've also had stuff refused because I've repeated,. What I mean is a little different from me repeating.

Hi keepitjijjy πŸ™‚

I've just had a look into this for you and your Debenhams freebie still appears to be live? (https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/freebies/chanel-mascara-chanel-perfume-samples-debenhams). At first glance it seems perhaps you shared a duplicate of your own post a second time and the duplicate has been removed?

I'll readily hold my hands up to say we do sometimes make moderation mistakes but please do reach out to us via our contact form if you think this has happened and we can investigate πŸ”

As this is a personal support request I'm going to lock the thread from further comments but hope the above has helped! πŸ‘
