Also, if everyone thinks it's "okay" to use coupons improperly, it can lead to further hassles for us down the road. Some RA's have already started implementing 4 like Q limits and some RA's also limit certain deals even when there is no limit stated in the ad.
I understand you're new and trying to help, but it may be beneficial to you and others to read RA's corporate Q policy prior to making threads like this one. I know we all see scenarios where Q's are used improperly. I try to correct people when I see them. And, again, there is always the report button. Just because someone else is doing it/getting away with it, doesn't make it right.
I do not feel one way or the other about this thread. I, personally, sit down each week and create my own scenarios that I use to best fit my needs. I also choose not to share them because since that TLC show, I've noticed more "free-loaders" who like to lurk around the forums and read about all the deals, but contribute nothing. If you want to help others, that's great, more power to you.
I do not feel like my previous post was rude at all. I was just trying to be informative. I'm a very "cut to the chase" kind of person. I don't sugar coat because I feel like we're all adults here and need to be able to accept some constructive criticism every once in a while. But, I guess the rudeness could be shared from both sides as I feel like I was just trying to help you by pointing out a mistake you made, but got jumped on because I didn't put flowers and hearts around what I was saying.
I am quite new but experienced sufficiently to recognize the voluminous amount of time, effort and generosity required to research, study and post the scenarios. I, too, found the post to be shockingly abrasive, harsh and entirely unappreciative and, though I am not the individual to which it was directed, I still feel stung!
