Default Merge Hot Deals and Free Stuff

With the relative lack of activity in both subcategories, most people don't even bother to check the freebies anymore. I know I bearely even check hot deals anymore. When a good freebie deal comes around (like shoprunner, which i did get), no one sees it!

i agree with the OP. i check the Hot Deals forum every day. once in a while, i take a peek at the free stuff forum. i got lucky and saw the shoprunner free deal.

if i understand correctly, there are two parts of the free stuff forum: Business to Consumer (B2C) and Peer to Peer (P2P). please at least move the B2C to the hot deals forum. thanks.

I agree with the OP with the exception for the tacky thread tag.

I agree. Free stuff gets 7 topics per month, and I just missed some free fries.

Agreed Free stuff should be moved into Hot Deals. I check hot deals quite often, I check freebies just often enough to know I missed something yesterday.
