Topic Wiki

HTs have been last updated on 8/25/20.

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.
-Deals that are posted with a thread title that doesn't spell out the full deal
-Back in stock updates within 3 months of the last update
-Deals posted more than 3 months after a forum post
-Updates to old post.
-Recurring sales such as 7/11 slurpee day, Rita's 1st day of spring, Nordstrom Anniversary, half yearly or seasonal sales, Flying Blue Promos, IHG Pointsbreaks, etc

Limit of 1 HT Per DDMS Post Per User.   

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

There is no need to bump a request if it was made after the last updated date in this Wiki.

New Bump Rule: A bump counts if it's been 3 months since last post. Same applies for DDF, if someone posted it within the past 3 months they get the HT.

Posting should be done to benefit the community. If your posting for HT then perhaps get a job ;)

Does this count? The HT mentioned in the post is from a post over 3 months old.

7)

https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=119706.0

Side note:
Now its $28 lower, first time under the $200 Mark. If it falls under $100, is it also just an update? At what point does a sale become significant for a new HT? This is a general question: If a new sale comes up, why is it just an update?

(Don't think it ever went out of stock either.)
I agree with you it should be counted, but about the HT age, the post is being reused so the last time it was posted isn't always the same as the original HT. (In this case the last post was Aug 23rd)

Aug 23rd was on Newegg. Seems like Dan keeps different stores separately. For example AirPods Pro with same price today from staples, but the staples page has a different HT then the Newegg or Amazon page.

So for the Amazon deal page, I guess this does count as a HT, as the HT on the amazon page is more than 3 months old?
