Since when can't we post 30% Coupon codes in the Coupon section?
  • I posted a 30% off code for kohls and it was expired and in the comment section was this:
  • Can't post 30% coupon codes.
    tr1plication tr1plication - 6 hours ago
  • And now MY code showed up in a post by MrBklynW ? What the heck?
  • I had resubmitted my code JELLYBEAN before I noticed the comment by tr1plication.
  • Can anyone tell me since when we can't post 30% off or is it BS?

Dont get upset. There could be many reasons but you will not get an answer from mods. They run the show the way they want. Nobody will reply to you (for some reason it changed). Just take it easy, breathe and relax. I gave up long time ago.

I tried posting the same coupon a while back and it was also removed. I don't believe we're allowed to post the Kohl's Cardholder discounts in the Coupon section. I remember reading something about this not that long ago, but I forget where.

does this apply to gaiam.com as well? I posted a code one hour ago, and now it's on the Featured Page. However, on the Heating Up Page it shows as shared by "Anonymous". Same on the Coupon Page for gaiam.com, "Anonymous shared 1 hour ago". However, I can see the "x" button, meaning that it's mine. but why does it show "Anonymous"?

@catchermom its MY code but they somehow got it and are getting credit for it,I had updated it to be my link but it looks like they changed it back.

I looked for info about limits on codes. Such as is linked above but didn't find it,had I been able to I would never have posted it in the coupon section,obviously.
I searched the MM questions and what's above didn't come up,I'm going to keep that link saved though and go over it to make sure I can avoid making mistakes like this again.

Live and learn.

your code? i don't think the code is limited to any one member, members who have been here for awhile know that the 30% Coupon is not allowed to be posted in the coupon section. Wookie posted the coupon for 30% Off 2 weeks ago. I only updated with the stacking free shipping coupon, which was last night.

There are some stores/codes that are not allowed to be posted as coupons but allowed on the deals page. Kohl's/Deals+ allows most codes to be posted as coupons but for whatever reason, the 30% off code is prohibited in the coupon section.

Other stores that ban codes on the coupon section are: Sports Authority, Sephora, Eddie Bauer, Things Remembered - just to name a few. But they CAN be put up as a deal.

I have noticed that this is subject to change. For instance Harbor Freight used to ban coupons in the coupon section but now it's allowed.

I suppose terms change from time to time and you learn to just roll with the flow.
