Quidco is owned by the same people who run HotUKDeals, CashBackKings isn't.

(So I've been told.)
#2
I wonder if this thread will disappear now? I really wouldn't be surprised.

THIS IS BLATANT CENSORSHIP

I am surprised at HUKD for being so profiteering when they to act so strongly against those members who profiteer!

Slight mix up here - you can[COLOR=Red] link to[/COLOR] any cashback site you wish.

You cannot [COLOR=Red]post deals[/COLOR] for any cashback site - this, we do not allow.

Instead of publishing PRIVATE mesagges, why don't you ask and wait for and answer from the person that PRIVATE messaged you.

It might disappear, but could be because someone joined me and Spammed it. :)

Woah, in all fairness the "Deal" there was for the free £25 bet and the 40 free photo prints. The cashback is an extra, and hence allowed.

The line is: if I remove the reference to the cashback site, is there still something to post? If the answer is "yes", then it's OK.

The first thread is for 40 free prints - not solely a cashback deal.

The second is for a £25 free bet - not solely a cashback deal.

"PhotoBox, the UKs number 1 photo service is running a special promotion for Quidco members."

So unless you're a Quidco member, there's no deal.

We allow promotions. Not cashback rates listings.

I'm removing your above posts as they are off topic for the feedback forum.

I'm not posting there because that wasn't the deal that I posted. Note that the deal you referred me to was for EXACTLY the same kind of deal as the one i posted (cashback on a sim only vodafone contract ( http://www.cashbackkings.com/vodafone/bargains/m2494 ) except with QUIDCO.

so what's the reason that this wasn't removed?
#13
So you're saying you posted a duplicate deal?

no not at all. if you read my post it says "EXACTLY the same kind of deal."

the cashback on the quidco deal was £45. at http://www.cashbackkings.com/vodafone/bargains/m2494 it is £90.

anyway, you haven't answered the original question?

As we say above, cashback in itself isn't the deal. It's the item/freebie/discount that is... so an increase in cashback isn't allowed as a new deal post as the deal for the SIM-only contract is already there.

well I was told by the webmaster it was because:

"As already explained to you, Cashback Kings contains third party
affiliate links and advertisments.
Admin removed it as we do not allow third party affiliate links."

so which rule was my post breaking, and where is that rule displayed. at the moment it just seems like it was removed because it was promoting cashbackkings.

also there is nothing on this site mentioning the link with Quidco.

surely this affiliation is something that HUKD users should know because it affects your "impartality"

I think most regular users know about the link with Quidco.

It's up to whoever runs the site what they allow on it. If you don't like that, you have the obvious alternative of not sharing your bargains with its users. :whistling:

one thing i have learned is that this place is like a friends living room in their house, you can do just about anything you like, but if they say not to then you must respect that and take it no further, taking it further only makes your m8 think you are a donkey.

Sorry for the vague quote from someone else a few weeks ago, im sure it went something like that..


:thumbsup:

I could give you a list a mile long of posts where a Quidco rate has been spammed.

In fact there are threads just like this with members arguing why they were not allowed to post a Quidco rate.

Get over it.

Sorry if I'm completely off the mark, but the link supplied wasn't in the form ".com/?ruid=-000000" was it?
#23


Free tunes from iTunes?
#24
I'm really not trying to be awkward, I just don't get it. The deal is dependent on you being a Quidco member. If you're not, the deal doesn't apply. So why is it not classed as a Quidco deal?

It's take him 2 days to find them using the search facility!:-D

I think it's strikingly dishonest not to mention in big letters that Quidco and Hot Deals are partners / owned by the same company etc... I've been using this site for almost nine months and I never knew unitl I stumbled accross this thread by pure chance.

Yes, not mentioning it is dishonesty by omission.

How about a big Quidco logo on the homepage?

Please correct me if I am in error.

PS when are you going to have sort by temperature in the adavacned section?
#30
I agree with admin... get over it!

I for one have spammed Quidco rate deals and will continue to do so.

no hes just being careful how he puts it
[admin]#35
HUKD is not the same company, is not run by the same people, does not have the same people employed by it etc. HUKD cares about HUKD. As you know and as is public knowledge I have had a hand in Quidco from the beginning but have always done my best to keep my interest objective. I like ideas and coming up with new sites so actually have quite a few things I am involved with (and always interested in more :p).

There have been a heck of a lot of Quidco "deals" spammed by mods and members and if you want to debate whether cashback offers are deals please use one of the existing threads above.
