I've also noticed a number of duplicates - there are 3/4 versions of sports direct, & at least 2 of the same Asda. I've just noticed it when I've seen duplicate postings - newer members search by merchant & if they don't pick the right one the deal gets duplicated. I mentioned it in on the actual threads recently but never got any feedback.

The Merchant list really does need a tidy up & listings merged where appropriate / possible.

Sorry to add to your original request sassie :thumbsup:

no fine sigma, asked for exactly the same reason as you have posted, should have made my first post more clear, jut seen someone post a dupe under ebeyer had they picked ebuyer.com they may have found/seen the post

Thanks for letting us know about the duplicate, we'll get it sorted.

If you see dupe merchants, it would be great to get a report using the report button to the left of the OP :)

Thanks!!

While this isn`t exactly a dupe it is a bit confusing, while searching for a voucher for "thetoyshop.com" nothing shows up, also when filtering deals by the same shop nothing shows up.
Finally worked out they are under "the entertainer", ......... very confusing! :thinking:

You're putting in too many letters... less is more cuzzy. E.g. Filter for toyshop... for example.... People don't necessarily create merchants with the dot com on the end.

Another mod might be able to elaborate but I think that their site did used to be "theentertainer.com". That address now forwards to thetoyshop.com, which I guess is a better brand for them, but the merchant still exists here.

As I say, Emma or Rayman might be able to shed some light as I can't remember. :)

theentertainer is the toy shop, very confusing though because people will still search for thetoyshop, it only comes up in search if you miss out the "the"

But if your searching for a voucher and enter "theto" it shows as "Toy Store UK TheToyStore"
and not thetoyshop.com :thinking:

That's a different store altogether cuzzy. I agree we might change that merchant name though... I don't think they're known as the entertainer any more.

I was searching for a voucher earlier and couldn`t understand why nothing was showing, when I knew I had previously seen them.
Might be an idea to remove the entertainer and replace it with thetoyshop,com.

the entertainer is still named as such in meadowhall and trafford centre.... or is that a different one?
#19
Rename...

Chili's Grill

to

Chili's Grill and Bar

EDIT: This is a merchant i just posted but as i put a "&" in the merchant it cut it off.
#20
Thanks for the dupe report. I think the chili's name is fine.
#21
Thanks emma!
#22
These two need merging...

JML Direct & JML Vouchers
#23
Also any chance a mod could sort this list...

As if the vouchers are posted in their own merchant then they wont show with the deals.

Thanks Gary, they're listed like that for a reason. As mentioned in PM earlier, we earn commission via links for some merchants. We cannot have tracking links behind vouchers for several merchants, and this is the best compromise to avoid merchants canceling vouchers / sales using those vouchers altogether.
