I agree 100% . I remember the deals overnight. I bought $2 Patio Chairs in Home Depot, External HD $15, lots of great deals. Something happened since 2018. I also don't trust Deal News anymore.
Two years ago, Deal News was a fabulous resource. Something has changed, behind the curtain. I'm finding more and more deals that have hidden catches, and may deals have expired within minutes of receiving the posting. I'm beginning to lose confidence in you more and more. Please step up your game.
