Congrats To Davidthebest: 500 Hat Tips!

DDMS IconNever Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on Facebook

Over at DDF (the DansDeals Forums), there’s a wonderful community of 24,960 members who share deals, travel tips, trip reports, with get-togethers held 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 they receive a hat tip, thanking them for their contribution. That’s the “HT” you might notice at the bottom of a post.

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

I did the same 2 months ago at Izzy’s in Crown Heights.

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

2 years ago, DDF member davidmal became the 2nd to join that club.

There are now 10 DDF members with 100 hat tips, each of whom has received a prize for doing so.

DDF member Davidthebest is the first to hit 500 hat tips and just got his own prize package:


I’ve been blogging here for nearly 14 years and enjoying DDF for more than decade. It’s all made possible by DDF members and readers like you. Thanks!

Wow thanks Dan! and thanks all!


Does it make sense for a company to publish a sale before it is available to the public? I had this experience with Six Flags. They published sales on the 2019 seasons passes but it was impossible to buy it on the website so I called them and they said it is not available until August 31st.
Heads up great prices will be available August 31st at


Congratulations !

I’m gonna start now. How do I open a DDF mileage account?
And, when I get to 500, can I get a bourbon instead of scotch?
