Probably have to post a real ad, not a Pinterest sheet.

Well if you check it, you see that this is Macy's own Pinterest page, not some random person, as a quick search shows confirmed by LA Times:

Pretty valid to me.

Uh, so what? You don't want to know what some of their Doorbusters are? Just use the "Men In Black" mind eraser thing then and all will be well.

Perhaps I should edit the misleading title of the thread.

Was certainly hoping they would post it on the front page since I reported it to them via the "contact us" button last night about same time that I put up the first post and before they had put up anything on it. Bottom line, I found it first and reported it to people I thought would appreciate it before it was on the front page. Any shoutout to alert readers on the front page?

And the comments were pretty snarky IMO. There were several I thought I might get like:

Thanks!
Good Job!
Nice Catch!
Like those $10 toasters!
Wonder if those earrings are worth it?
Can't wait for the rest of the items!

or even, "sorry, was posted by ______ on ______ before you!"

but nope, instead posts (from "pros") belittling the info first stating it was "just a pinterest post" (without bothering to check it seems that this was the official Macy's page posting it) then downgrading it because it was not the "full" ad.

And nice attempt on the save here, but there was no "yeah its nice.." in the responses.



Sorry I bothered some people with the news...

Thank you for posting, message received. In my opinion, Job well done, still not T shirt worthy,
