Publication Rules

In order to respect the spirit of our community, members should not post the kind of offers listed below:

  1. Against the law, public order, ethic, the right of a third-party and/or our terms of use. Example: Pornographic content, copyright infringement etc
  2. Self-promotion and advertising for a brand, a service or a company, except as part of the Verified Partner test.
  3. From a merchant already banned or suspended from our community.
  4. The reliability of the seller cannot be verified or is not currently suitable for listing.

Example

When reviewing a merchant we consider how established they (or their parent company) are, their reviews, any company information, their contact information, compliant Terms and Conditions/Privacy Policy etc. This list is not exhaustive but the team will make a call based on this information they’re reviewing.

5. Where doubts exist as to the likelihood the deal will be honored or the availability would appear to be minimal.

Example

When reviewing a merchant we consider how established they (or their parent company) are, their reviews, any company information, their contact information, compliant Terms and Conditions/Privacy Policy etc. This list is not exhaustive but the team will make a call based on this information they’re reviewing.
  1. Using an optimization for personal interest, financially or not (referrals etc…)
  2. Not the best offer available at the moment on the market when comparing like for like products. Exceptions will be made for “additional benefits” such as additional warranties etc.
  3. Offers that are not widely available (eg contract break information). These will be moved to Discussions at our discretion.
  4. Already posted through a recent deal without significant changes regarding the price and/or the conditions.

Example

We’ll need to consider the % price reduction and how long the deal has been on hotukdeals. If a deal is only a few days old we can provide the existing deal with a thread and price update. More significant price drops would warrant a new thread.

  1. Cannot be delivered to our country (exceptions exist for hotels abroad & flights).
  2. Cannot be ordered or pre-ordered at the current time.
  3. Permanent offer, especially if there is no deadline.

Example

Free to Play games, free apps, trial period offers, YouTube videos (like movies, animes or documentaries) and items listed at RRP (like newly released products). Most deals with a due date at the last day of the current year if posted many months before, especially if it was already available the previous year(s) etc.

  1. Megathreads or deal compilations will now be moved to Discussions.

Example

We consider a megathread/deal compilation to be a thread containing deals from more than one merchant. Sale threads for a single merchant with product examples would not fall under this rule.

bapcsalescanada reserves the right to accept offers on this list under certain conditions and to refuse offers that have not been mentioned in this list.

Remember that moderation is managed by humans and that bapcsalescanada can not guarantee that it is always carried out in a completely uniform way. Certain rules can only be applied following a judgment of the moderation team but we’ll always be on hand to explain why we reached that decision.
