What deals are being removed?

Removal of deals generally occur if the deal is:

  • A duplicate (deal has been posted recently)
  • SPAM or an advertisement for the store instead of a deal.
  • Better suited to the forums (e.g. Selling or swapping request, competitions)
  • Not available to New Zealand (Retailer can't ship to New Zealand.)
  • Listing issue
  • Banned items (e.g. Adult products, gambling.)
  • Sockpuppeting/Meatpuppeting (Companies falsely pretending to be customers.)

Removal of deals can only be done by moderators and not by users. Please use the report button for any removal requests.

Additionally, if enough people negative vote a deal, the post is hidden from the new deals page. You can still access the deal if you know the direct URL.

If you want to know why a deal has been removed, you can contact the mods in the forums, or if you feel that you want a public answer, post if in the site discussion.

ChoiceCheapies limits voting on deals to 1/3 of deals posted in 72 hours. So if 300 deals are posted in 72 hours, the maximum number of deals you can vote on is 100.
