Updating deals when those who posted them forgot the expiration date.

5 0
Many folks, I noticed, have posted sales or those daily deals WITHOUT  a expiration date included.

That is unfair to the next person who finds the updated deal and can not post it, due to a past uploading from a different post that had already expired, but was not posted as such here on!

If a sale or a deal has a expiration date on the sale, it is only right for the deal to be updated as such.
To avoid such confusion. Besides, it does not help you after the sale has expired anyway.

For example- Home Depot is having their weekly sale of 60% of their paint selection- it expires at the end of the week. But, if not posted as such, it will remain active here on so, yes, I will find it in my means to update such a deal with the CORRECT expiration date.

Thank you for your co-operation.

I certainly think updating a deal with the expiration date is very helpful. I don't think it should get partial (MM) credit. But any helpful info added to a deal is beneficial regardless of 'credit'. I tend to scan through some of the popular deals to see if they are still valid, if not, I expire it b/c it's a waste of time & frustrating to go thru them when shopping.

You don't need to update it as expired but you should always flag it as expired

Thank you guys. I agree with both of you.

I don't think you get MM credit if you just add an expiration date or make a small change to someone else's idea.

I know- yet, someone out there was upset that I updated his deal. If anything, it brings it up to the top of the list.
