I've just notice a ton of exclusive coupon offers from "other" coupon sites are showing up on the coupon feed service provided by LS.
Please be advised!OpA! Giasou Ti kanies!

I've seen similar things through LinkShare's private offers. Merchants will accidentally make a private offer (usually to a loyalty site with a toolbar!!!) public. It's insulting to see the commission rates that they pay to parasites, sometimes 2-3 times the base commission rate.

The issue should now be fixed. The issue was only relevant in the "feed.linksynergy.com/coupon?..." format. We actually have a brand new server and new format to support the increased demand of our Coupon Web Service. The new request is in "couponfeed.linksynergy.com" format.
You should begin transitioning to the new format soon because we will be retiring the old format in a few months! We also added a new feature which gives you the ability to choose how many results you want to see on a given page.
Be sure to click on the link and read our updated guidelines: Coupon Web Service

I've just tested out the new format at "couponfeed.linksynergy.com" and was wondering if you can suggest the option to have all the offers show up instead of them capping off and needing to switch "pages".
Also quickly looking over the coupon offers for various merchants (1800 Flowers) doesnt appear on the new format, but shows up on the old verison.
And the old format still has the same problem with other(s) coupon exclusives showing up.
Is there a time delay for the xml on the server to update itself?

I believe there is a little time delay as our servers synch up. I believe it should be working now.
I used your token and I was able to see 800-Flowers using both formats. The pagination is in place because we have so many coupons! We didn't have it initially when we first created our Coupon Web Service because we didn't have as many coupons so now we need to include this in order for our system to properly handle all types of requests.
If you add on the "&mid=773", you will see both formats give you the exact same results.
