So... I am trying this and upon clicking on the date it will open that particular chat thread but doesn't open the most recent post. Am I doing something wrong? :thinking:

nemosays You're right - I may have miscommunicated. It goes to the most recent page. I wonder, Kelsey, if you could make it so it goes to the most recent page and jump to the bottom?

Hi Tom, although I have been a member for a year have only just really got into the site, collecting points, posting deals and comps etc. I have gone back to this part of your advice as i have clicked on method of entry (i only want to do website as i do not use social media) but every time i come back online it has reset to all. I can't seem to find a save button so what am I doing wrong? I use my kindle fire and pc but am not by any means particularly good with technology. Thanks.

When buying or posting a deal, it's often worth checking the brand's merchant page to see if there are any applicable voucher codes.

You can also search on a Merchant page through just their own deals.

Jump to your Points Log by pressing the points on the top right-hand-side.

This shows you an explanation of what you earn points for and also shows you a log of your activity and what you got points for.

We've built a tool to help you find bargains on Amazon.

You can find it in the Menu under 'More'.

It's called the Amazon Discount Finder.

The tool finds discounted items in a select category, for example, all LEGO toys that are a minimum of 20% Off.

Pro deal hunters use this tool to seek out new bargains to post on Latest Deals.

Latest Deals is a big website. To make it easy to navigate, Kelsey has built Breadcrumbs.

Breadcrumbs are quick links at the top of the page to help you find your way back to a previous page, category or section.

You can search for Chat threads at the top of the page. This is useful to find old discussions to add to, and also to see if a support query has been answered before.

Thank you Tom,

I've just joined while submitting a deal. Noticed this is a great community which I was missing for so long.

The deal is not showing now, I don't know what happened as I'm new here. Any help would be highly appreciated. :grinning:

Hi Seanz apologies as I didn't see your message. Please can you clarify if you can now share deals or is it still not working for you? Note that there are limits to how many deals you can post each day.

Thankyou ayy123 for tagging us :grinning::raised_hand:

hi nemosays,

Yes, I can share deals now but one per day limit. I think I have to pass certain levels to be able to post multiple deals a day :smile:

Thank you very much for your attention.

Laptop / Computer:

To refresh any web page press Ctrl + R (or Cmd + R on Mac)

Mobile / Tablet:

The website does not auto-refresh because if you were half way down the page it'd then jump and take you to the top again. Hope this helps.
