Topic Wiki

Q: I had deals posted to the main site, why do I have a zero?

A: It's not updated automatically, post a link to your deal on the forum(*), the DDMS link, and the number HT it should be and Dan will update it.

(*)If your HT is already in the DDMS post there's no need to link to the forum thread.


Hat tips are not awarded for:
-Amazon "Deal of the Day".
-B&H deal zone.
-Discountmags sales
-Credit card deals.
-Deals that are only part of a roundup.
-Deals that were posted as part of a master thread when they belong in a new thread.
-Deals posted in the following boards: SH, GD, TT, TDR, JS, or GFST.
-Back in stock updates.
-Updates to old post. (DDMS Updates, however DDF Updates do receive)*
-Recurring sales such as 7/11 slurpee day, Rita's 1st day of spring, Nordstrom half yearly sales, Flying Blue Promos, IHG Pointsbreaks, etc

* "Over the next couple weeks there will likely be a lot of new posts that are really just old posts being bumped in the new format, like the switch is just an update of an old post but it got a new post to go in the new format." -JJ  (7/07/17)

Ineligible Nordstrom sales:
1 Anniversary sale
2 Half Yearly sales
4 Seasonal clearance sales

HT has always gone to who told me or posted first.
That includes but not limited to DDF, DDMS Comments, Facebook & E-mail.


Please do not bump your request if submitted in the past 72 hours. 4-5 Business Days During Holiday Season.

I think the policy will be whoever posts a deal first from any store gets the HT even if we only post it from a different store. We of course appreciate and encourage posting sales from all stores.

curious question, so by your reasoning should this qualify for a HT ?

So if a deal is dead, and you point out that it's alive again on the main site, that doesn't count, but if you say it on DDF it does?

So if someone posts a deal here, and by the time you looked at it, it was dead. Then few days later someone else says alive again on that post. Who gets the HT?

I believe what we've done was give it to whoever posted the deal that gets posted on ddms. If it died it's no longer a deal.
