Topic Wiki

HTs have been last updated on 6/28/24

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/alive again 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.

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

i looked when you posted that and didn't see that airfare. Had a feeling it was coming as well as they have been doing that with F9, but did you actually see it live at that point?

No, deals don't belong in master threads (see Wiki) and that wasn't the source of the deal (as I've probably never even opened that thread in the past year).

I put it in the master thread since I figured more people that found it relevant would see it there as an update instead of making a new thread (or putting it into the misspelled one from 2012).

Just because you can technically track all the threads that everybody else opens, doesn't mean we can do the same for you  ;)

Ran it very quickly through an ota with a sample ita date to make sure it wasn't a phantom fare, but this was after I posted it. I don't know what time.

I know it wasn't live when you posted it, so my question is were you guessing based on their F9 matching pattern or did you know somehow?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

No HT's for CC deals is a stupid rule. Can you explain the logic behind this.

If someone posted a link today for 70k bonus on an IP card they wouldn't get a HT?
