    Default How about a topic section where we can share Promo Codes & information on good deals?

    I was just shopping on Cheaper Than Dirt and before I placed my order I found a $10 off coupon code for orders over $100. That made me start looking for other promo codes for places like Midway, Cabela's, Gander Mountain etc. and was happy to see lots of them?

    How does everyone feel about adding a topic section to the forum where people can start threads sharing promo codes or just something you might see that is a great deal? We can all help each other save money while enjoying shooting.

    I think i saw an area for that on here somewhere. But can be wrong too. If there is not that is a great idea.

    Sorry but CTD is on my boycott list. They won't see any of my money, despite how good or bad their sales are.

    Cheaper Than Dirt earned the eternal ire of many members of the gun rights community when the Internet firearms and ammo retailer reacted to the Newtown tragedy and caved to liberal pressure by ceasing all firearm sales. They also jacked up their prices (read "price gouging") during the AR shortages, due to the Obama/Feinstein threat of a ban. They also attempted to persuade customers to support a gun control bill.

    Here is a couple of screenshots during the AR shortage and ban threat ......

    BTW, Dick's Sporting Goods is also on my boycott list.

    Hey guys,

    I think that's a great idea -- I'm all for helping the community finding good deals when you find one yourself. The only concern from this: the vendors on our site will feel that other businesses are being promoted and that will create a conflict amongst them. Perhaps if they were promo codes/coupons from the vendors, that may be the exception but we'll have to check first. I have sent off a request to our mod team here to see what they think of this and will get back to you with the verdict.

    Thanks for your patience!

    Cheers,
    Natalie :)

    I'm with admin. Ads here should be paid ads. Claims of good deals is advertising ~ sort of. This place is a business, and we're guests. Saying that a company is offering a discount coupon, that's advertising. IMHO. And if it worked, we'd be inundated with shills for discount coupons etc. Then there are discussions and comparisons of firearms and ammo and prices and all the rest, which is also advertising, in its own way.

    Some wisdom or insight to distinguish between comment and advertising would benefit the community, and the world at large.
    "Behold, I Myself have created the smith who blows the fire of coals and brings out a weapon for its work." Isaiah 54:16

    "Now there was no blacksmith to be found throughout all the land of Israel, for the Philistines said, 'Lest the Hebrews make themselves swords or spears.'" 1 Samuel 13: 19

    "Each of the builders had his sword strapped at his side while he built." Nehemiah 4:17-18

    "Let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." Luke 22:35-38
