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.

Hat Tip leaderboard here. Feel free to update.                                                                                      Limit of 1 HT Per DDMS Post Per User.   For Full Terms and Conditions

Up to how long does one qualify for had tip after a repost on the main site.

Meaning if a product sold for $100 and then a month later it's sold for $90 and it's posted on the main site does that qualify for had tip or is there a certain amount of money it has to decrease by in order to qualify for a hat tip? if it's within a month of posting or is it a month that has to be passed in order for it to be a qualified ht?
For sure more than a month. I've had a post that didn't qualify for a HT which was well over a month after another member posted it here.
