most deals are posted by members, therefore i guess its just coimcidence if there are retailers with many posts,

No we don't get paid advertising. All posts on the forums are from members. Even when mods post a deal, they are just found somewhere like the rest of the deals. We do have one or two things going though, such as a special 10% discount code for Jessops which they gave us, and a special £5 voucher for firebox.

Retailers pay HotUKDeals commisions but we are never paid to advertise a certain product and the amount of money the site would make has no bearing on what's posted, it's simply to pay for server bills and other overheads Admin needs to pay.

Most of the deals are posted by members. They can post whatever they like whith whatever retailer they want, as long as that retailer isn't banned for spamming or self-promotion by the member posting.

Hope that helps.
