Just start a new thread in the misc forum if you want to benred.

I have been trying to post my first deal, two tins of Branston baked beans at Morrisons for 50 pence

When I click 'submit' I get the following message 'Error: Please enter a valid, numeric price. Do not include a "$".'

I haven't included the $ sign anywhere. I have changed 50p to £0.50, still get the message about the dollar sign. I give up

Did you put any sign/letter in eg a '£' or a 'p' ? Just enter the amount as a number & nothing else & see if that works - the field doesn't appear to accept non-numeric characters, so just put 0.50 :thumbsup:

thanks, I have tried that and still get the same message

Managed it now by saying they are 25p each instead of 2 for 50p

how the hell do u post a deal


Try reading the beginning of this thread 1st... If you are still stumped feel free to PM me - with a bit more detail - and I'll see if I can help.

I'm no expert but any help I can give will help you to post a deal I am after and hopefully it's a 40" plasma for £20... Though probably not!?!

I must be missing something here - I posted a deal which has been removed and the message I got from mod said it was because the "Company is based in Swittzerland and will not therefore be included in HUKDs Merchant List."

I have looked at the About HotUKDeals - How it works section and elsewhere and cannot see the rule which forbids non-UK companies. Now, I know the site is called 'hotukdeals' but I having seen other deals, available to UK customers' from non-UK companies, (e.g. ]DealExtreme based in Hong Kong), I thought it would be OK to post a deal from a company in Europe.

Could someone please clarify for me?

Thanks

Some Non-UK companies are approved and people are allowed to post deals for them. But very few though... You must get permission from admin before any new non-uk sites are posted.

can i upload the photo later afer posting the deal ? If yes how to do i

I THATS IT HOW COME ITS NOT IN THE GROCERIES TOPIIC ON MY PC THANKS FOR REPLYING

Hi

Yesterday I posted my first post: a Tesco deal on Wairau Cove Sauvignon Blanc at £2.83. I'm not very savvy on the site but It was on the site for a short while (someone claimed a previous post but that was different) but now it's disappeared. How do I find it again or what is the reason it has been deleted please?

It was spammed as a re-post, I think it's technically the same deal as the one from last week?

Same wine, better deal. Last week it was mentioned as one of the selection in 3 for £10 wines (£3.33/bottle) but I posted 6 for £20 less 15% = £17 (£2.83/bottle).

I don't know how this site works and who has the power to delete deals (is that 'spammed'?), but having had some great deals off here I was trying to return the favour and this happens on my first attempt. Happy to be proved wrong but I don't believe it was posted in this form before. can you advise please?

We generally don't allow seperate posts for in-store and online deals if it is the exact same product.


Thanks.

Thank for your response. No, it's not on-line vs in-store. They're both in-store but the one I found was at an even better price, as explained in my previous post.

I'd just like to understand how this works and who makes the call/deletes it. If it's mistaken how does it get put back on?

Thanks.

Hi there.

An item can by spammed by members, if enough hit the "spam" button. Also, the deal can be spammed by the moderators. We also receive reports from members when they find a "duplicate post". Due to the large number of reports we get, and the similarities of the deals, mistakes can sometimes be made.

In this case, you're right. There are indeed two different prices here, so I've returned your thread.

Hope that helps, and apologies for any upset/inconvenience that this may have caused.

Thanks, much appreciated. I've been a 'watcher' on the site for months and have picked up many good deals. I thought it was about time I found out how to put something back on and this has been confusing and frustrating. I'll try to read up on how it all works - can you point me in the right direction please?

You hadn't done anything wrong, so it's not your fault that your deal was spammed.
If you know that your deal is similar to another one, you can point it out in the opening post so that members don't spam it.

A lot of how it all works isn't easy to find, as there are variables that you only get to find out about by reading the "Feedback" forum.

Maybe you have "online deals only" button turned off. See tools near the top.

Well done emmajk42, that was it... I was just testing you...

Cheers for the quick help guys

Wow... only 27 degrees!!! but this is a fantastic deal. Oh well.

Welcome to the forums.

Try leaving the price field blank and then submitting your deal. Then edit in in after if you can. Thanks

But I want to know how to do it..so I'm not asking someone to do it for me all the time. If I just put the address from the address bar at the top of the page then I think that's wrong?:thinking:

You just paste the link >> campaigns.vodafone.co.uk/ucas/
Into the "direct link" box when submitting the deal.
