    I am sure the people who are posting the after-coupons price (if you happen to have any) feel that they are getting the most bang for their exaggerating buck, but it really doesn't help those who do not have coupons.

    It used to be on SC that you would post the actual store price in the title of a thread when reporting on a deal.

    what happened?

    it is not helpful when people have to click on a thread, read it and then realize that the deal dos not apply to them because they do not have a coupon.

    can we please go back to posting the real price in thread titles, and then elaborating on potential coupon combos in the body of the thread?

    thanks

    yes nothing more frustrating than finding you don't have the store near you or the coupon is a rare one.

    Even if there is a sale, I won't buy unless I have a coupon. I will be posting less here and more in the brag section where I combine a sale with a coupon.

    Its not about not posting coupon deals, just being clear in the title. Posting xyz for $1.50 with no details is not as helpful as xyz $1.50 w/coupon - $3 at GT this week
    That way people who do not have the coupon or that store can skip to the next thread

    anisa isn't saying you can't post about purchases made with a sale and coupon, but indicate it clearly. She just means don't post "oh , i got this for $1!!" then it's eventually revealed that was after coupon, stacking, store that not everyone have access to, etc.

    If you still think you'll post less here and more in Brag? Then please do. Because it really is more of a brag than a informative post in that case I understand people get excited when they get a good deal but it purely a "brag" instead of helping others take advantage of it, too IMO. The Brag section is exactly what that's for.

    Well said FallenPixels. And while one person may never buy X item without a coupon, many of us do for various reasons. And not all of us have access to certain stores like Giant Tiger, London Drugs, Save On, etc.

    It also used to be standard to post Rants in the rant's section.

    Your rant is neither a deal nor a flyer, so stop cluttering this section with your rant , and post it in the proper rants section next time.

    Mods please move this thread to the proper section.

    People come to this section to see , " Canadian Deals and Flyers " , so please post your rants elsewhere next time ..Thanks

    I moved it to the appropriate section because this rant is NOT deal. But someone moved it back. Whatever

    I guess this is where the rant will remain then

    The OP does have a valid point , but its still a rant at the end of the day and NOT a deal as you mentioned.

    Imagine everyone who doesn't like something about the " Canadian Deals and Flyers " section starts creating new rant threads and starts posting them here , it will be total chaos and there will be no room left for any deals and flyers threads , over here.

    I think it does belong here because it's specific to this board. I am also in agreement with the OP. People need to know what a price is without the coupon, not after. The coupon comments should definitely be part of the post, just not in the subject line.
