    Only a few days left for this promotion!! But why?
    I just got 2 emails like that from merchants - but why? Why do they send emails like that out? Do people actually put links up when there are only a few days left, when they'll just have to be taken down in only a few days?

    This close to August 31, I'd rather already be getting emails with links for Christmas promotions - that would be worth the time, and end of August is not too early; but they seem to drag their heels 'til the last minute on those.

    Sounds like someone is just short of getting a monthly bonus check and they are working like crazy to hit their sales target. Years ago, I worked in sales and those type of last minute deals were always around for a little extra cash at the end of the month. It's amazing that many businesses STILL are only concerned about one month at a time. This kind of attitude has ruined many businesses because the only time you can get a good price is toward the end of the month when the pressure is on to "make the month".

    Coupon sites are typically the only sites that can efficiently handle such short-term promotions. We love them, but most other affiliates hate them.

    If you have a system that automatically removes expired promotions, you only need to enter the promotion into your system. There's no reason to remove an expired promotion with all the automation options available now.
