referral links in deals posted?

Hi, why can't I post a deal with a referral link? Using the referral is the only way to bring the price down all the way. Are there rules I should learn about so that I can give the best deal and not have my posts marked as spam?
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

just keep this in mind, no referral link here, you even don't need to know why, coz it's just a rule as most of other deals sharing sites, in addition, there are some other detailed rules for different platforms, such as Amazon, Aliexpress, ebay, and so on.

First of all coupon codes are the same as referral codes for the deal I posted, because the both lower the price. Did I error by being honest in calling it a referral code instead of a coupon code?

Also I clicked on some of the slickdeal links, and some say the word referral or ref right in the hyperlink. Is slickdeals just trying to keep all the referral money for themselves, even at the cost of higher prices for the users of this website?
