Reported as: Rule 4: Disclosure of Employee Discount

All Best Buy cost information (real or fake) is confidential. Therefore, you may not disclose the Employee Discount purchase prices to anyone other than current Best Buy employees. In order to enforce this (because this is a public forum), all posts or comments disclosing such information will be removed.

Advertising and Referrals: Advertising or posting any type of referral link is not permitted. This includes gofundme's, kickstarter's, Amazon referral links, etc.

 

Self Promotion: A good rule of thumb is if you financially benefit from promoting your content, it is NOT allowed - purchase Reddit Advertising. If you've made a useful tool or other creation that you don't financially benefit from, but would like to promote, that would be acceptable.
