You Won't Find False Advertising Here.

As the owner of a PR firm, one of my pet peeves is businesses who use false advertising. I check many deals only to find out that they are not "deals." It is frustrating that businesses will institute a price drop then create a bogus promo code to make people think they are getting a deal. I may not post very often, but what you see in my personal feed will represent genuine sales and deals. I actually shop the stores that I post about, including independent shops like Sticker Guru. Half the time, I check deals that sound too good to be true and learn that they are. That happened with a hotel "deal" today and it prompted me to make this post.

@carliel I wanted to add that I tried BOTH promo codes listed for this: the one DealSpotr sent in an email, A9SP2, and this updated code, A9WS4. Neither got me a discount off of the hotel's best available rate of $40.57.

@carliel This is their new discount. It used to be a 10% discount, but they've lower it to 5%.

@carliel
@carliel You must be a NEW customer. This code applies to your first purchase at AirBnB only. You'll need to be a new signup. (Sorry for commenting on my own post, but I can't figure out how to edit it here. This was my first post/deal ever and I just didn't know to explain that. The code is valid and was used two days ago by another member.

I am new to this site and trying to figure it out. I suppose you'd call this a "Tip of the Day" as opposed to a deal.

I wondered how many people realize that VUDU started offering a free option. You do not have to pay a monthly fee now to watch many shows. They'll let you view for free with commercials. You can still purchase content to have an ad-free experience.
