    Coupons With Invalid Begin/End dates
    I get a lot of coupons from AvantLink merchants that have bad begin/end dates. These coupons are just ignored/excluded from my website. Perhaps AvantLink could enforce a valid date range? Here is an example of a bad coupon:

    evo Super Site Wide Sale - Get an Extra 20% off thousands of already discounted items - Use Code: extra20
    GeneralPromo
    NoActionRequired
    evo
    10/19/2013
    12/31/2037
    What's up with this 12/31/2037 date? It isn't valid. Sometimes I will see 12/31/2037 but the real begin/end dates will be in the coupon description. Is there something wrong with the AvantLink UI that causes this issue?

    So, let me re-phrase my statement given that thread says that 2037 means no end date. I ignore all coupons with no end date. Also, merchants are setting no end date but specifying an end date in the description.

    In my opinion, letting no end date coupons through your system is just helping the merchants be spammy. No one should be able to stay on my website for 23 years via a single coupon entry.
