Default Annoying Coupon posts by Admin

Does anyone else find these annoying, or is it just me?

Ditto here - I noticed the 'New Posts' function above many months ago, and use it to see the...new posts. Typically it works nicely, but lately esp this morning...2 pages of coupon alerts??? yes very annoying... Perhaps Admin can do something about that.

Wish they would not appear in "New Posts" but instead just have a button at top of someone wants to see them. They all appear on another coupon site....

I like the idea of the coupons but it is annoying having to scroll through so many posts when I'm interested in the coupons. Maybe they could be done in such a way that they don't show up in the "New Posts" search.

When you click on 'New Posts' do you not see a menu button 'skip coupons' at the top of the messages listing? Try clicking on that! Should then be able to access coupons on that menu button. No?

OK, hope this helps.
If the coupons annoy you, simply hit the red button at the top of the page, and they will be turned off from the NEW Posts section. Then if you want to see the coupons, go to the HOME location, and around 12 items down you will see the Coupons section, with the word NEW to the left.
I think this solves are the concerns I have seen above.

But don't forget to WAIT 30 secs between clicks 😁....
Then it will work

A section for coupons for the few that like them would be appreciated.
