I just wanted to say thanks

My first deal that has gotten a lot of thumbs ups is about to make front page after getting to 16 in like 5 mins. Its a zippo lighter. This made me think for a second.....
maybe the higher rep users get more front page deals because there is a strategy to the time, and the place, and the kind of deals that people like on this site? What I'm trying to say is we can't assume that is rigged because high rep users are always getting the front page deals. Also, they were once one of us low rep users too, and they made their way to the top the hard way just like what we're facing!

and remember (my drivers ed teacher taught me this a LONG while back)
assuming makes an A$$ out of U and ME

You've got some pretty good deals. If I were you, I'd try to include dollar signs on the prices, but it looks like you are really getting the hang of it and finding out what type of deals and stores people like. You've been here for awhile though, so you know what's up :) Good luck!!

In response to your request for advice with someone with high rep in another Ask & Share:
I don't really know what to tell you. I mean, I don't have tens of thousands in rep but to me, it looks like you're doing the right thing. The only thing I'd like to see in your deals is the original price - the price that's usually crossed out in deals. It'd be easier than looking up the original or competitive prices.
Aside from that, just keep doing what you're doing. Post deals, generate attention, and post meaningful comments. Your rep will go up over time. :)
