Because somebody had to make one...

I didn't know you made the rules around here.You can yell and be annoyed all you want...A gutten Shabbos!
I was waiting for someone to come along and angrily yell at me for that. But this is not a discussion of a deal, this is about people not reposting deals. Discussions of deal details and how best to utilize them belong on the Amex Offers Master Thread. This is housekeeping.
READ THE WIKI STOP COMMENTING IN THIS THREAD ITS ONLY FOR POSTING NEW OFFERS ALL COMMENTS SHOULD GO TO THE AMEX OFFER MASTER THREAD

But what will we do when "D" decides he made this thread and no one else is allowed to post in it?
Can we make a 'Discussion thread for Discussion thread for "Report a New Amex Offer" thread'

I got the point...understood it quite well and can certainly appreciate it.
I had never even posted in either of the threads prior to today but took umbrage to people yelling at other people to stop posting in threads. Its a community here...

I know you got the point as you were around the other thread, I quoted coralsnake in my response as I wasn't sure if he'd been following the comments in the other threads.


And of course you can post. Like you said, it's a forum so everyone's voice can be heard and people shouldn't be "yelled" at. I hope this thread will be a civil means to help everyone win  ;D


G"S and G"Y to all!

Maybe someone ( / we) should start putting the current deals in the wiki, this way it may be easier to see if it was posted already.
If people don't search the thread for reposts, I doubt they'll look in the wiki.

can you get the $70 off by Staples & Home depot or is it a total of five between all the stores listed?
Amex Offers Master Thread is where you go to ask questions and discuss deals.
Report a New Amex Offer Master Thread is where you report a new deal.
This is not complicated.

Folks please post success or failure on the regular Amex offer thread . Let's really try to keep this thread for pertinent info on NEW offers.  Thanks!

I've given up on trying to get people to follow that simple rule. We could change the thread name to REPORT A NEW AMEX OFFER ONLY - NO DISCUSSION ALLOWED - CHECK IF OFFER WAS POSTED PREVIOUSLY and there would still be discussions and reposts. Its a sad fact, but its just the way it is.

The annoying thing is that when people like you post to remind people of the rules (and I'm not condemning you for it) it bumps the thread and makes those of us who follow it for new deals think there is something new :(

i think we should have posted the reminder after the first or second extra post, would have been better then the ~7 we ended up with

But if this one bump will prevent ten more, maybe it's worth it...?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
