    Why do I always get private offers that look to be the exact same as my current offer?

    shimmy,

    Your question is quite broad and without knowing your specific case, I can only provide a general response. Sometimes Advertisers send private offers that look exactly like your current offer so they can potentially send you additional links/creative or even coupon codes that they normally would not provide to everyone on the regular offer.

    Additionally, an Advertiser may consider becoming private and will simply let their base offer expire and only work with the Publishers in the private offer.

    I have to be broad because it happens all the time with different merchants. Okay, so supposed it's the first option you gave. Wouldn't that mean if I accept the new offer that I would no longer get the additional links/creative for the current private offer I'm in? The problem is that I have no details to separate the 2 offers to know which one is better, since they look exactly the same.

    shimmy,

    You are right, that could happen because you can't be active in two offers concurrently. At this point, I would advise you to reach out to the Advertiser if there is no clear definition.
