Question: When I try to post something it always says,

"You're a sharing machine! We're afraid you've reached the limit today but please carry on bargain hunting tomorrow."

I have studied the dashboard and see you only get points for 3 comps per day posted but assumed you could post more if you didn't mind not getting points? I have also seen business postings where a company has posted their own comp or deal and too many times to count I have seen same comps repeated. Does this mean people are ignoring the 'whoops, looks like this has already been shared' message?

Hello, thank you for your message.

Yes, most members can post

more than three competitions a day. There are limits on points, and after you have reached these limits you will no longer get points, but can continue to post (until you reach your posting limit).

If you spot a company posting their own competition, please report it using our Report function. This is against our guidelines and we will ban them.

In regards to duplicate competitions, sometimes the same competitions have multiple entry mechanics. For example, through different websites and social media channels. Therefore, you may see the same competition listed multiple times for each of the different ways you can enter.

Otherwise, please report any duplicates you find using the Report function. We rely on members such as yourself on reporting them.

Thanks again for your feedback.

Update: My message below is incorrect.

Thank you for your message. Post limits are on everything, so for example, a total of 5. It wouldn't matter if they were deals, vouchers, freebies or competitions. The total limit would still be 5. I hope that helps clarify things? Please let me know if not. With best wishes, Tom

Tom I thought there wasn't a limit for competitions. I think it would be beneficial if there wasn't.

Given that this would be the very first time I'd have shared a deal, I'm rather surprised that I'm getting a message telling me that I'm a 'sharing machine'. Curiouser and curiouser!!

Got this yesterday and was surprised since it was a while I reached the limit.

Posting deals anyone can, but good ones which are cheaper than retail is different. Plus, sometimes being lower than RRP doesn't necessarily make it a decent deal if the product is mediocre.

Apparently I'm a "sharing machine" as well.

I can only post one deal per day and I get an error which makes me sad as I have some cracking deals to post especially since it's nearly Christmas.

Is there something wrong with my account, I thought " 3 deals per day" is the limit as on https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/points ?

Cheers
