My stream recently started flooding with stories like "Your friend just claimed an offer from Sears, bla bla bla".

I don't see any way to collectively hide all Offer stories. Is there?

There should be. What do you see if you click on the "v" icon at the top right of the story in your feed? – ChrisF Feb 28 '12 at 10:16
@ChrisF - I get options to unsubscribe from my friend, or from "activity stories by my friend". Nothing that globally disables offers. Also, I'm not sure whether "activity stories" == offers, or are there other activities that are not offers. – ripper234 Feb 28 '12 at 12:41
Can you post a screen shot? – ChrisF Feb 28 '12 at 12:46
@ChrisF - done. I've crossed out the name of my friend. – ripper234 Feb 28 '12 at 12:57

There is no way to hide all Offer Stories (other than a user-script that targets the content) in the same way there is no way to hide all ads. Think of "Offers" as ads in plain sight.

if you install the FB Purity browser extension, it will block all offer stories, along with sponsored stories, and any other story types you don’t want to see.
