I really do not get why people want to stop people from sharing codes. Is it to protect the owner of this site from losing his own sales?

This affiliate link thing is confusing and if anything they are helping us save money.

I do not see where we the Cheap Ass Gamers are losing out anything other then access to more coupon codes.

Just my 2 cents.

Just seems retarded.

Helped me save 10 dollars


The main 3 people who have been sharing codes were doing it for the sheer profit they receive from every person that buys under their link, under the guise of helping people. This is against the site rules and goes against the nature of things around here. These same people have only been around for a month or two and have only posted in the related threads, to make money.

Even without those users posting their codes, there have been a ton of shared coupons in the past 21 hours, only slightly less than with their "contributions."

And yes, as said earlier, by using the link in the OP, your purchases go to keep this site running and keep the contests and giveaways coming.

Not to go against this site or anything.

But it seems like a iffy move.

Like when my husband sold video games and a rival site started slandering his good name on the forums and it spread to the net to where it became such a huge false legend.

Why not defeat the purpose and just use the coupon codes without using the affiliate links.

Its not like they are holding us hostage.

While there's no real obligation to use affiliate links, it gives coupon-posters incentive to keep the coupons flowing, and it's a nice way of showing your appreciation for someone who just helped you save $5/$10.

A few coupons given and even fewer affiliate clicks wont make us or you millionair. I use the affliate earning to fulfil my gaming needs nothing else. And when we purchase, we are ready to use ur link.

Rules appear more like formed my jealous ppl then by any of the CAG staff.

Anyways, I will keep sharing few $5 coupons here.

When i first came here, only a fews days back..I was asking for coupons. So I understand few ppl really need to save money by using coupons. Few coupons without affiliate exchange wont make me begger ( as funds just fulfil my gaming needs and dont make next Bill gates ) so I wld definately keep sharing coupons here with smile :).

Plead all you want, it's not going to to change the rules. The activity flew unnoticed under the radar for too long before we caught on and actually paid attention to what was happening.

This has nothing to do with jealousy, but simply enforcing the rules. As I said earlier, if everyone used everybody else's referral links and not the ones for CAG, this site would not continue to operate as it does today.

This discussion is over. Please keep the thread on topic.

So, um, I have a question: how does one go about getting these $10 off $50 coupons from P/A? Every time I've ordered from them, all I've gotten is a $5 off $50 coupon.

Anyone know?

Oh, and just so folks know, Chaztin originally (even in this post) was trying to get people to use his P/A affiliate link, instead of Cheapy D's. Sp00ge altered the post to eliminate the link, and that's why the guy was banned. He knew about the rules, was warned, and *still* chose to poke the hibernating bear. He doesn't have legitimate reason to complain about the action taken.

Oh, and Sp00ge? I want to personally thank you for knowing how to spell *and* use "you're". I need my faith renewed in internet users every once in a while.

Yeah, as I said in the OP, this policy is now zero tolerance. Chaztin requested people use his link, that was listed in his last post, and is now banned because of it.

The same will go for any of the others that are PM poaching people requesting codes, if they are caught.

And thanks. I'm usually a bit of a grammar/spelling snob, unless I'm tired. I always find myself looking for mistakes anytime I read. I swear it's not OCD! ;)

And good deal too on laying down the banhammer... CAG affiliate links FTW! (keeps CAG nice and free for the rest of us!)

Dunno. Maybe because this forum has saved the majority of us countless dollars. The least we could do is through CheapyD a little affiliate love to help keep the servers running as good as they do.

Be thankful the you can access the forum for free.

He doesn't even as for donations.
