On Redweek when you deactivate an ad, there is a quick pop down question about why you removing the posting.
Rented using Redweek
Rented using another method
banked the week with an exchange company
Will use or giveaway
Sold my timeshare/no longer available.

On Tug the options are mark sold/rented
or delete

Because I want to keep an copy of the ad I don't simply want to delete the ad, I mark sold/rented even when not done through Tug.
I probably have contributed to $4000 in rentals and a few hundred in Sales that although listed on TUG did not sell or rent through TUG. I know other sites do this too and go by the asking price (not the actual sale/rental price). If someone comes to TUG thinking that listing on TUG alone really has resulted in those numbers they would be wrong.

and likely balanced with the fact that a very large % of people sell or rent, and dont bother to select any option and the ad simply expires on its own.

more than 75% of all ads posted in the marketplace are expired with no input from the poster.
