I don't remember if I signed up earlier, but it was definitely this deal that got me involved.
Very interesting thread..

Very interesting thread..

I wonder if it was the most utilized and longest lasting pricing error ever. And it didn't even make it to DDMS!

Check the thread for the end date which was sometime in January 2016 IIRC. Check the first post of the thread to see approximate time when it began catching on in the Yiddishe communities.

45 Days on DDF

It was going on in the Yiddishe communities since October and ended in January. It was likely around for a long time (likely more than a year) before it started spreading in the Yiddishe communities.

There were probably thousands of policies purchased.

Since you asked, I came here when all the local blogs were deep in covid denial but at the same time people were dropping like flies r"l. I'm not so good at cognitive dissonance and I thought I lost my mind until I discovered here that there a few others who understood the danger of covid and were still frum practicing Jews.
Google Sheet with Lakewood Covid numbers in profile for those interested.

After a long time reading DDMS, I finally joined to find out about the Le Meridien Dead Sea.

I joined after someone told my husband he went to Israel on AMEX points accrued from his business. I think (not 100% sure) Google got me here.

Heard about it from a friend, who heard about it from a friend, who heard about it from a friend. Can't remember how many there were.  :)

So UPS delivered you to DDF? Was it next-day air? second-day? 3 day? or ground?

Paging @YitzyS, this could be a major news item. Where the UPS method finally slipped out of someone's keyboard!
