Obviously, this is a bad thing on here (as is posting to ebay deals), but what exactly is it?
I can understand somebody working for a smaller company wanting to drive enquries and sales towards their particular store because that will have a direct influence on their own sales.
If, for example, I worked for a highstreet store, does that mean I can't promote any of the deals that we have (as refered to in the another thread about 2 for £60 games at PC world and Currys). Surely although that is promoting your 'self' or at least your own employer, the benefit is far wider than your own immediate sales especially when these deals are nationwide and often online as well. Since alot of the deals are from stores that have a non-commision based sales force, there is nothing to gain from "self promotion" in these cases over and above the satisfaction of seeing somebody get a good deal.
If anyone can clarify for me, it would be greatly appreciated.
