Q: Sharing coupon

Is it wrong to share dealspl.us coupon links on other deal sites? MM gets $10~$30 for sharing a coupon link. Apparently, this amount is a lot more than submitting a deal or coupon. As most of us know, deal sites gets a lot of traffic too, but will other deal sites restrict users from posting links from dealspl.us?

Good question! I would think they would just want the deal/coupon itself, but to remove anything that links it to dealspl.us because they probably wouldn't want to promote another deals site. It seems like a good deal for DP since it would help us advertise, but as far as the OTHER deal sites LIKING it? probably not... but i think it would also depend on the individual deals site and their policies. just my guess though!

i think it all depends on the site you are posting it on. some may have automated ways of catching and deleting things like that, but if you can get away with it, i don't see a problem. The site is getting a good coupon code, you are getting money.

Theres a lot of ways you could take advantage of this sharing coupon method. I'm really surprise no one has taken advantage of this one site I have in mind. It's pretty popular here in the bay. People go on to find new and used items and no its not eBay. ;)

Lots of good thoughts, but I wanted to chime in to say that we actually discourage Money Makers from sharing Money Makers links on other deal and coupon sites. While it may seem like other sites would appreciate a good coupon, unfortunately, they generally don't love content from their competitors. We don't want any of you to get banned from other sites, and we don't want any other sites to block the dealspl.us domain. So, I encourage you to get creative when it comes to deciding where to share your links!
