We have hurry for great deals that will sell out fast, hot for an amazing price, and smoking hot for $94 cameras. And the best deals get sizzling or smoking hot hurry
Fair enough.

I personally saved $88, and spent $8. That is definitely hot to me.


That's a lot of rashes
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

That's what I argued, but @jj1000 said I was nuts. Turned out to be one of the top selling items over BF/CM, so clearly people were pretty excited about it.
I personally was very disappointed when the deal died with four tubs in my cart. It was actually one of the only deals I attempted to utilize this BF, and I've paid full price for Desitin many time before. What I do get perturbed about are posts like this:

"SMOKING HOT! Canon Mirrorless weighted infrared fish-eye lens for zero gravity dark areas, perfect for moon vacations, only available in pink, fits Canon XMXMXM2933, only $39,499 after $200,000 drop."

If you don't use it, I totally get that it wouldn't seem hot. But Desitin is brand like Tide with a defined price and it rarely goes on sale. Plus at the time I posted it seemed you can get an unlimited amount of these, multiply that by $12 off each one and you quickly add up the $$$...
I do use it, but I guess it's a necessity, so not really exciting per se. I think that's the point I was really getting at. When it's a necessity, the only real excitement is saving $. Nobody is pumped to have ointment show up at their door. The real excitement is when you buy something like 1st class tix to Hawaii, and on top of that, you pay pennies!
I personally saved $88, and spent $8. That is definitely hot to me.
For many people saving on desitin is the same as saving on diapers, you can make the same comment I'm not dropping ice cream to save $80 on diapers... but in the end it really just depends on the type of ice cream ;)
LOL! I just remember previous deals that were "get em at all costs" type of deals, like dirt cheap/free airfare or tech, that people literally dropped life for 20 min regardless to book/buy. I feel like no matter how cheap, diapers just aren't quite that. Still, just my opinion, and doesn't mean it doesn't warrant a special title.

I like this. Now that I know this, I can use it going forward to decide if the ice cream is worth dropping. ;D

I see the two opinions are just getting more and more separated, and this partisan argument is just spiraling out of control.

Dan is more king than a dictator.

SF & JJ are like the evil advisors who have the king's ear and too much control.

IMO, A smoking hot deal should be on a smoking hot item. Obviously that varies by person, but a deal like this shouldn't be hot, firstly because its discount is not that great in actual dollars, it's more relative. Also, It's not the type of thin I believe most people get excited over, even if it was free. Just my 2 cents.

This is indeed a smoking hot deal if you know how to order a few dozen of them. I need not say more.

I'd beg to differ. Not everyone needs/wants to deal with this deal.
