Why can't I edit a promo code once it's been added to the site?

Hello Emily Helwig, I have a strange case here xD. I was validating a code from the shop "corningware", then I realized that the code was wrong writed and I manage to get the real code (by erasing 1 letter from the code), the problem is that when I try to edit it, the page does not show the editing options. I read the forum and, see that other user have the same problem, and you say that to invalidate the deal and post a new deal with the correct code, but when I go post the deal, the loading spinner from the "When does this deal expire?" Keep spinning all day long xD. Then i need a little help here cause I don't know if this is a bug or something else. Here some Pics for reference view more


Re-activating Codes with Future Start Dates

Is there a way to indicate that a re-activated coupon code has a start date in the future? For example, I went to add a code for Murad that is valid from May 18 to June 7. The code was already in the system but was expired. Unlike when I add new codes, I did not have the option of indicating that the re-activated code had a start date in the future. view more


Editing a Promo Code when Validating a Deal

I came across a deal, in which two of the characters where reversed in the box where you copy/ paste. I was able to use the correct code (the one shown in their screenshot) and get the deal, but I could not edit this error in the post and therefore could not validate the deal (with the proper code). I did not want to invalidate the deal (as the issue I had there was not listed), so all I could do was report it on the front page and comment with the proper code. view more


Getting Rid of a Duplicate Code

The coupon code FIVE is listed twice at Nicki's Diapers. How many invalidations are required to delete one of the codes? I did not realize the code was duplicated at first and have validated both in the past. One should be removed from the the site completely. view more


Deals that use different codes for each person.

So there's at least 1 website, I think there's more though, that email every person with a different code for the promotion they are offering. Like, today I literally see at least 3 duplicate posts but they're each using a different offer code for it so I think everyone is getting a different code emailed to them. I'm not sure what could be done about it, but it's a little goofy if you ask me. view more


Repeal posts that you think were flagged unfairly?

I think it might be nice if there could be a way to repeal if someone flags your post and you think it's not fair... I just had a post get flagged because someone couldn't find the deal I posted. I checked and it's on there... I didn't have the direct link, I edited the post so it would take someone directly there now but my post's rating was still low which really messes things up cause most likely people won't be able to see it like that. Oh yeah, and 2 points were taken away from my accuracy score, THANKS A LOT! I worked really hard to get it up to where it was. Really disappointed. view more


Is it a Bug?

Good night, I have two problems, the first is that I asked for my first gift card and in the section where the Redemption History is displayed it is shown, as if I had requested two gift cards and only had 10,000 when making the request, it is correct That shows itself thus ?. view more


Printable coupons that also have a promo code?

There was a deal recently, where a printable coupon also had a promo code, but I don't think I could have both on the same deal. And a while back I uploaded a deal that I later found out had a printable coupon but I couldn't edit my post to have it labeled as an in-store printable. I didn't want to upload the same deal again in case someone invalidated it as a duplicate, or something like that. view more


How to fix your posted deals?

I've noticed that people have been "invalidating" some of my stuff, such as for being incorrectly labeled as a site-wide deal, (one which wasn't even originally mine but I revalidated it so I guess it became mine?). Well I went to edit my deal to try and take the "site-wide" tag off but for some reason it wouldn't remove itself, it kept showing as site-wide even though I clicked it off. And with another post I kept uploading screenshots but they weren't showing for some reason. I don't know if it's glitchy or if there's bugs or what but something needs to be fixed. And another thing is there was a promo code that I went to validate but someone seemed to have mistakenly set it to start in the future, but the deal already started so I kept trying to fix it but I couldn't see where to fix the start time so there was nothing I could do. And there was at least one expired deal that I reactivated but it kept saying it expired. So I dunno, a few things to fix I guess. view more
