questionswhy has everyone posted future deals so early?

In order to clarify, I am not asking about Black Friday specials. That I know would cause a dupe question. This question pertains to just about any special that is days away from happening that gets posted.

For rep, that's all.
I don't think they should be allowed as they aren't available to buy.

I like to have the head's up on a few of them - like the places that will have the PS3 bundles for $199 - hearing about that deal ON black friday is too late. I do think there are too many of them, but I'd rather have that now than too late.

@thumperchick: I'm good with Black Friday if they are actually labeled as Black Friday in the title. Anything else seems to really be rep gathering as @wickedd365 has mentioned.

I agree with @thumperchick. That said, I prefer to see deals posted that are available for pre-order and can be ordered. I don't like the "available in X days" postings.
