How soon is cash-back credited to my ShareMyDeal.com account?

While most merchants provide a report in just a few days, others may take up to 3 weeks from the SHIPPING date. As a result, the transaction will not show in your account until we receive the merchant report. Please wait at least 3 weeks after your ENTIRE order has been shipped to see your money in your transaction history. After 3 weeks if you still don't see anything, please send us the complete order information to member_service@sharemydeal.com

When can I get my ShareMyDeal cash-back?

Depending on the merchant it may take from 91 to 121 days. Because merchants typically have 90 days to reverse a transaction in case product return takes place. During this time your account will show "Pending" for the cash bach associated with this transaction. Some merchants take longer than others to pay us, and we would not have the fund to pay you until the commission fee is sent to us after the 91 to 121 day period. When the money is in your account, it will show that you have an "Available Balance" You can then request payment.

Is self referral allowed in ShareMyDeal.com?

It's allowed, however you would NOT receive referrer cash-back on your own transactions as a buyer. The rule is in place to protect you as a referrer to receive the credit you deserved.

How to post a hot deal and make it to the home page?

You can start with the 'post my deal' button on the home page or forum -> hot deal board to start a new topic. Once it becomes popular and voted by other members, it will be automatically routed to the home page. Please also take time to mark the deal once it's expired to help our home page more organized.

How to make my deal a community pick?

Once your hot deal post becomes popular, our moderator will mark it sticky and then it will be our community pick for the next day.

If I have a coupon, which board should I post it to?

Good question, the "Coupon" board is used as a place holder to collect all coupons member submitted and linked in the store page. You should definitely post it to the "coupon" board; please also take time to mark the coupon expired once it does to help our store page more organized. If the coupon will result in huge savings, you may also consider to post it to the "hot deal" board, such that other members can see it from home page and take immediate action.

Why do I need to enter summary to create a new topic?

We have a better forum than the ones you have got used to. Every piece of information on the home page of ShareMyDeal.com is extracted from the forum posts created by everyday shoppers just like you. Obviously we can only place blurb of these articles on the page, thus the need of summary field. Please always be concise in summary field.

Why do I need to enter something to the body field to create a new topic?

The Body of a new topic give you a space to describe the topic in details. It wouldn't make to the home page, but for anyone interested in your topic, they can click the "More" button to check the detailed story and comments by others. Note that our search functionality is performed on post level, thus please do cover everything mentioned in the 'summary' field for better search result. If you have to copy and paste the summary field, that's fine.

What is smart formatting?

The official name of the smart formatting is Textile, aka Humane Web Text Generator. What it does is it enables you to enter web enriched content such as bold text or links without using verbose HTML, so no more tags that don’t make sense to most of the users or fancy buttons to click should you place a link to your post. Just write your post with simple markup symbols. For example, put * around a word, like this *CouponCode* will give you CouponCode. Or # at the begin of lines to give you a numbered list. We listed some commonly used ones above the summary field in new topic page to give you some example.
