What happened to this page?:

https://www.dansdeals.com/credit-cards/10-quick-ways-meet-credit-card-signup-spending-requirement-land-mega-signup-bonus/

I don't recall there being any major revelations there, if any.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

After having read through the entire Pesach programs thread and after the turnout of this I would think that a warning on any future Pesach program ads would be warranted (either saying do your research before booking any Pesach programs or if DD has advertised them many times in the past with positive reviews, like PFS than say that).

Not saying its necessary, but knowing the DD lfnei mishuras hadin approach (CC debt, 3rd party scam amazon sellers etc.) it really might save some people.


ETA: Or maybe there should just be a DDMS PSA on Pesach programs in general.

https://www.dansdeals.com/advertisement/today-believe-sinai-academy-receive-free-25-100-amazon-gift-card/

If you look in the auction booklet it says on the bottom of page 6:

NO PURCHASE OR DONATION NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN.  A PURCHASE OR DONATION WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. The Mega Sweepstakes 5784 (“Sweepstakes”) is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, Canada (excluding Quebec),
UK and other countries only where offered and permitted by law who have reached the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which they reside at time of entry. Sweepstakes begins at 9:00 AM Eastern Time (“ET”) on November 6, 2023 and ends at 11:59 PM ET on February 28, 2024. To enter and view complete
Official Rules which govern the Sweepstakes, including how to enter without making a donation, visit www.nershlomo.org . Void in the Province of Quebec &amp; where prohibited by law. U.S. law governs. Promoter: Yeshiva Ner Shlomo, 137 Cedarhurst Ave, Cedarhurst, NY 11516 U.S.A.

What connection does Nershlomo have with Sinai Academy?

If you go to www.nershlomo.org the only information I can find about a sweepstakes is a sweepstakes run by Nershlomo in 2022.

Also the Sinai Academy drawing is on January 13th so why does it say it end on February 28th?
Its, like 95% or hyped up charity ads, a scam.
Dan has been pretty quiet on this one...

This was selling for $27.96 yesterday and is now the lowest price this year  from Amazon.

A bit misleading, considering it's a new post.


For reference

I don't follow, that was last year.
This year meaning since January?  For reals?

It's misleading, didn't say not technically correct.

Seeing now based on keepa that it hasn't been $27 since April 1st as well. It's much more compelling with the line, but it isn't factual

The first thing that came into my head was wow best price in a year..wait..actually didn't I just buy for cheaper?

It's not, it's plain non-OT regular english.
You just don't seem to understand the difference between saying "lowest price within the past year" to "lowest price this year."

Cmon don't gaslight him. It obviously is intentional, "within the past 4.5 months" just doesn't have the same oomph.

Sure, because 4.5 months would be a very weird timeframe to give. This year is a normal timeframe to give.

That's just based on it being wording from when it was originally posted. I don't edit that every time we bump a post at a lower price.

But I do try and change if it's not the lowest ever wording, although it's also still wording from a previous post, with the old title still there.

I actually read it as this year starting from January and indeed shrugged it off "it's April still, nu nu."  :)

None of this was a problem before inflation went crazy.

Used to be everything dropped in price over the years, now it's not the case at all. And 2024 pricing and 2023 or 2022 pricing have VERY different standards for a normal price on something.

We have items that are now different ASIN with less quantity, but same priduct, but lowest price ever for the new asin. Is what it is.
