Same Item, Different Variety

Other

I had a scan and couldnt see this topic posted. Dont know if its already in place to stop them (if it is it isnt very effective) but keep seeing more and more deals for the same item but a different variety. EG. Pringles, if they are on offer at Tesco surely 1 deal to show this is enough. Iv seen the same person post this the next day but with a different flavour (so original the first day, then s&v in the next) and so on for a few days. It might just be me but it really bugs me

Hi natz265

If the offer is the same, such as Pringles from Tesco, and the user posts the flavors separately, you can report the post as a duplicate and it will be removed.

Another example:

Basic T-Shirt by 99p, and then the user puts the same deal 3x as Basic Black 99p T-Shirt, White 99p White T-Shirt, 99p Basic Green T-Shirt. This is a duplicate post!

If the offer is from another supermarket or store, then it is valid even if it is the same product, since some people have access to just one of the stores for example.

kikogpe good to know i can report as duplicate without me thinking im doing something wrong. I understand the different supermarket thing (although i tend to put in the listing if its the same price at more than 1 store)
