Hmm, the Kohl's one is always interesting since the 5% OFF and Free Shipping you automatically get when you use a Target card is not automatically included. None of the deals really bother me, partly because I post some of the Free* Ship $100+ and mostly because sometimes it really is worth it to me (shoes quickly get me there as do bras and stores with a selection for the family).
One thing that does bother me is I've noticed people commenting on their own deals, presumably to get credit for comments without doing legwork. And I don't mean an answer to a comment either. I don't do this so who know if it even counts. :)

I agree there should be clearer guidelines/rules for the site. When I first started I had to search for a lot of questions I had.
The freebies section could use a "only 100% free deals" guideline. Often times I click on a "freebie" only to find I have to pay shipping or buy one, get one...
I can't complain too much though because I do love dealspl:)

There are lots of deals that I can't or won't take advantage of because of certain conditions, but I don't think that means they shouldn't be posted. Someone will find them useful. For instance, an in-store only deal for a business that has no physical locations near me helps someone, even if it isn't me. My biggest disappointment is the proliferation of Facebook-only deals. I don't deal with companies that would sell my soul if they could get their hands on it. But many of those deals are very good, and since many people are OK with Facebook, I'm not going to even suggest that they be banned. As long as the terms of the deal are made clear, I'm OK with it.

@dealwagger in regards to posting comments on your own deal,after I read your comments it came to mind that I have done that a few times,I didn't do it for comments credit ( I never even do the 10 a day as I usually only comment on something I am sincere about)
When I comment on my own its usually a personal note about the item,that I've used it and can vouch for its quality.
I don't feel like I should put personal experiences in the actual deal posts.
So as for me that is the reason I've done it a few times,anyone else who wants to speak up about their reasons,feel free.
That's where assumptions shouldn't be made because not everyone on here has an ulterior greedy motive,some of us are trying to put it where they feel is most correct.

@xptrish, it sounds like you were insulted by my comment, I apologize for that. Let me be more clear, that (what you described) to me is more or less a response to the deal, I like to add those after I got the deal myself for example.
What I am referring to is the deals that post part of the deal information in the description, and then reiterate this information in the comments. Since this is something I'm unclear about, I would rather not shout out the names of the users doing this, but I did not have you in mind. Let's just say some of the newer users are doing this and I don't see it done by more familiar names such as yourself.
