Trading GCs in deal threads violates the Acceptable Use Policy

232 51 August 15, 2019 at 07:41 PM
Slickdeals has an acceptable use policy posted here that states (emphasis mine):

Quote :
Trades

Trades are limited to a maximum of $5 in value. Slickdeals is not responsible for any bad trades. No monetary trades, including trades in bitcoins, are allowed. Please trade at your own risk. Only use the Official Trading Thread and follow the rules here.
Is this the official policy and should it be enforced?

Hi,
We prefer that trades take place in that thread but some deals lend themselves to turn into trading and we've allowed it in those threads as long as they stay within the $5 limit.
We will look into whether or not we need to edit wording in the AUP.

That said, they can give away as much as they want but can only request things up to a $5 value in return.

Users peddling gift cards and coupon codes in exchange for Amazon GCs are consistently among the most downvoted posts in any thread. It clutters deal discussions with cheap spam. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for voicing your concerns and thoughts. At this time it's pretty ingrained for the traders to be able to trade in certain threads that lend themselves to that due to the deal they are in.

Agreed. It's hard to research an item or carry on a discussion about the item or get a question answered when it gets buried among the rubble.
