Congrats To davidmal: 100 Hat Tips!

Over at DDF (the DansDeals Forums), there’s a wonderful community of 21,212 members who share deals, travel tips, trip reports, with get-togethers held frequently around the world. The forums have been around since May 2008 and it’s a great place to hang out.

When a member posts a deal on the forum that is later featured on DansDeals.com they receive a hat tip, thanking them for their contribution. That’s the “HT” you might notice at the bottom of a post.

2 years ago I treated some of the folks with the most hat tips to a dinner at Mike’s Bistro.

Last year DDF member Marco Polo was the first to reach 100 hat tips and he won a $1,000 Amazon gift card!

davidmal joined the forums in December 2013 and has been a true asset to the community. He recently reached 100 hat tips, the 2nd forum member in that exclusive club.

Today he received this thank you package consisting of a complete set of United’s hub city collectible amenity kits, a bottle of 40 year old single malt scotch, and a $500 Amazon gift card!

Last month I celebrated 12 years of blogging and it’s all only made possible by DDF members like davidmal and by readers like you. Thanks!
