Thread Details

Last Edited by Schooby July 30, 2015 at 10:11 AM
To consolidate the stickies, i'll link to them in this thread. first off here are the faqs:

What information should I include when I post a deal?
Try to include as much detail as possible in the title. Then expand on it in your post. General info to provide: expiration date of the coupon, minimum purchase requirements, site link, shipping and handling costs, and the coupon code. The more information you include, the better. Follow up if possible, so you can edit your post to include new developments.

Why are links on this site broken?
Click here and follow the instructions to fix your link problems.

General usage comments
Prior to posting, please use the search feature to see if your contribution has already been posted.

If you spot a repost, provide a link to the original post.
Use ModAlert to report the post to the moderators.

If your post is hailed as a repost, don't be discouraged. Better luck next time!

Deal is still good!
Do not create new threads to inform that another deal is still available. Replying to the original thread will bump it up to the top of the list.

Rebate involved?
Please include AR (after rebate) to indicate the final price after rebate.

Where to post?
Deal requests and questions belong in the Help Me Find a Deal forum.
Deals that are free belong in the Freebie forum.
Free Magazines belong in the Free Magazine forum.

If you want to post something that doesn't fit into any of the above categories try the lounge.

The official Giveaway/Swap Thread

Are you getting a free magazine that you don't really want or it was not what you expected? Post your magazine on this thread for others who might be interested in it.

This is not a request thread.
