Hot Deals Forum Rules & Guidelines

The Hot Deals forum is for the sharing of deals from online and B&M stores for other Tech Report members. Please read and understand these rules & guidelines before posting.

1. Posting Etiquette
Include a link directly to the product in your post. This makes it much easier for others to get the specified deal. If the deal has any specific codes that need to be applied, then include those codes in your post if they are not included in the product link

2.0. No Vendor/Kickback codes
Tech Report is not to be used as a storefront. Anyone caught using deal codes that offer any kind of kickbacks for anyone will result in their post being deleted and the poster given a strike, with the possibility of being banned. There are hundreds of ways to make money on the internet…..this is not one of them.

2.1.On occasion online vendors that are TR sponsors make special deals available to our readers to gauge interest in new pricing or marketing. These specials require the use of a code or specific link for tracking purposes. Often these codes involve a very small commission reimbursed to TR for going to the trouble of posting them. Therefore, an exception to rule 2a is allowed for TR staff to post deals of this nature.

3. No Spamming
Free samples of Viarga and free iPod ads are not hot deals they are spam. Do not post any links to ads of these kind, they will be deleted quickly. These forums are visited regularly and your ad will be deleted within hours. Continued posting of spam will result in a ban from the forums.

4. No Thread Crapping
This forum has a zero tolerance for thread crapping policy. If you have a problem with a post or a poster then contact the moderator with your concerns. If you are still unsatisfied with the outcome of the moderator’s decision then you should contact an administrator for further clarification. Any thread crapping posts will be deleted and a warning will be issued.

5.0. No Thread Hijacking.
Keep all discussion related to the posted deal only. If you wish to discuss the technical pros or cons of the posted product then take it to the corresponding forum.

5.1. If you know of a better deal on a like product feel free to post it in the same thread, but only if it’s the same type of product. (Do not post a deal for a HDD in a thread for a deal on monitors)

6. No eBay or other auction Links
This forum is for the posting of deals available either online or at brick & mortar stores only. Links to eBay or any other auction sites are not allowed.

If you have any questions or concerns about these rules please feel free to PM the moderator of this forum or an administrator for further clarification.
