Content Expiration?

Is there a means to set an expiration date on a content item. I'm trying to create a "Special Offers" content type but would prefer not to have to manage these limited time "offers" manually. I know I can create a module (similar to SharePoint's announcements functionality), but this is such a common need I'm assuming the functionality already exists and I'm just missing it somewhere. Thanks!

I actually dont think that has been done.

Easy module to write though. You could attach an expiredatetime part to the item, then have a background task (IBackgroundTask) unpublish the items as and when they are required to expire.

I actually think it has been done.

It's called Archive Later.

Fair point.. I completely forgot about that module.. I would therefore use what Sebastian so rightly suggested :)

Thanks for the quick replies! I'll try the Archive Later module. Appreciate the help!
