"Thank you for participating in Dealspotr. We reviewed your recent activity, and unfortunately, we saw patterns that match patterns of abuse or unhelpful deal posting which may negatively impact the user experience on Dealspotr. In your case, you're only creating / reactivating regular codes for high volume stores (stores with 30+ promo codes or 150+ single-use codes already active). Please avoid doing this. Some examples of helpful deal posting activity: post deals for a wide variety of stores, in particular stores that don’t have many deals yet; use a wide variety of validation types (creations, reactivations, confirmations, edits, etc.); provide evidence of reactivation expiration dates (if none, default to 2 weeks); and try out the new Deal Posting Projects to earn more points. Your account has been adjusted for this activity. We encourage you to continue your participation, please double check that any validations you’re making are truly helpful to shoppers on Dealspotr."

We strive to reward users who are doing positive behaviors on the site and are improving the user experience for our shoppers. Sometimes stores offer numerous promo codes and while that's great to a certain extent, it can get a little redundant. When a store already has 30 promo codes, a shopper can use one of the other codes that's already on the page, so adding another is just an excuse for points. We created our Deal Posting Projects page to aide users in finding low volume stores to gain more points. Please check out this feature to help you earn points for gift cards while being a positive deal poster on the site. I hope this helped!


Rachel Auerbach thank you, but I have another question, Is it necessary to add codes or I can do only revalidations to get my gift card? because as I wrote is the fourth time that I couldn't get it.
