DDF Calendar
« on: September 12, 2015, 10:04:49 PM »
A lot of Dan's posts on the main page contain dates on which specific churning-related events, deadlines etc are to take place.

For example, Dan often writes about signup bonuses coming to an end, or deadline to add a certain feature to your card, deadlines to book on certain airlines, routes ending etc...

Why doesn't someone (Dan should, but he currently doesn't) compile all of these dates in to a shareable Google Calendar for the community's convenience? To make it worth your while, you can sell ads on various days for advertisers ("Sale at Yankel's Bakery today!")

Whoever wants to claim this project just say "Aye"

Theres a thread somewhere that used to be updated with expiring deals.
Paging TimT...

But quite frankly, Dan does a good job on the main site reminding when deals are ending.

Still, there's nothing like opening a calendar view of these events so you don't have to scroll up and down to pick out these dates from various posts. Also, Google Calendar allows you to easily set alerts and copy events over to your own calendar so you can add your own notes.

I'm quite surprised nobody's ever done this yet (at least publicly, that I know of)

If dan would let me advertise on it maybe I'll do it. I'm assuming all info on his site is intellectual property.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

That thread is good, but only when it's actually updated. A calendar would definitely have its advantages.

That's a good Rosh Hashanah resolution.

Thanks!
