Expired Deals?

204 34 July 15, 2017 at 11:24 AM
So I was looking through a search for an item and saw an expired deal and thought well I'll look at the price currently. Unfortunately your site stopped me with a pop that I couldn't click out of. Now I was logged out and thought this is an aggressive tactic to get people to sign up. But logged in doing the exact same search I only get two results instead of the pages and pages of hits not logged in. Neither of those two were the expired deal. I am usually logged out because my browser clears on shut down and I don't always want to have to log in.

This tactic of blocking me from seeing expired deals is enough for me to try out FatWallet for the day. Hopefully they aren't doing the same thing over there.

expired deals are generally moved to deal talk and old expired deals can generally be found in the archive. are you sure your search included those forums?

someone can look into it further if you provide your search terms Smilie

We're not blocking anything. If you're unable to click the X to close the popup, or use the gear in the lower left to tell it to never show again, that's a bug Smilie
