I am not sure if there is an exact spot for this...

But there are a lot of sites... like fatwallet and woot etc that people discuss great deals that they have come across on the net and at regular stores...

Anyone know where on this site we can do that?

It seems that I sometimes stumble across a good deal that someone posts... Like for a refractometer... etc. I just missed a deal on a thermometer.

With as many people as we have here...We would find a lot of deals together. It would be great if we could have one section to post deals that we find... rather than some in the classifieds and some in the vendors... and some here and some there.

Any thoughts on this?

hmm the concept sounds good now would you be able to post sales of your own like craiglist for homebrewers or would it be more for pointing out existing deals. also would it be a sticky thread or a forum of its own and who would keep it from filling up wit already solds and random junk

i think this is a good idea. i would stay away from craigslist, but online stores or retail stores would be nice to see. Also it would nice to have it as a sticky. THe page should be updated weekly though.

Not sure if it should be a sticky or not or where it could go.
The idea is this:

PERSON A: Is shopping at wal-mart and sees that they have buy one get one free on the bags for a food saver.... posts it

PERSON B: Reminds everyone that today is Free Shipping day at Hops-R-Us

PERSON C: Stumbles across an ebay dude that has digital thermometers for $5 (originally $30)

PERSON D: Sees an add in their local paper that a dude found 20 carboys in his uncles basement and wants $10/each for the,

PERSON E: Etc, etc, etc.

I would think that this would be a NON-VENDOR sticky/post/forum as the idea is this will be for ideas that WE think are the tops. The vendors have their area already (no offense guys)

I have seen these types of posts, but they are just scattered across the forum. If we were to help each other out (ala 'fatwallet') it might be nice.

Not sure how or where this fits into the site... but again, I would like to be able to make wherever it is a regular stop on my visits to this site.

I dont think this would require much work either... Just need some input to fine tune this idea.

jalgayer,
I think you have the right idea.
I myself have posted a thread in general not knowing really where to post, 25% off on all foodsaver bags.

I know not everyone looks at general every day, I know i don't. So having a thread that just said Hot Deals or something to that matter would be great place for anything ranging from Free shipping on hops to Hey, Found this digital Thermometor for $5.00 on e-bay.

As mentioned before tho, I think Vender's already have there own thread. To double post one in there and one say in a HOT Deal thread would be like double promoting.

Just my .2cents worth.
But i think its a great idea.

it would be extremely effective, and popular i think, if it is modeled after this site - http://slickdeals.net

Yep.

Slick deals and fatwallet are exactly what I am talking about.
Basically a new forum that is strictly for finding, sharing and discussing deals.

Would we need mod approval? Is anyone else interested in this idea?
