I need an OTB solution for creating something that will notify me when a Purchase Order in a list is getting close to it's expiration. Because we are unable to use code or even SharePoint Designer this resolution has to be Out of the Box for SharePoint 2010.
 
The list has a column titled "Expiration Date" that displays the date the PO is set to  expire but I need perhaps an alert that can generate an email letting me know the PO is within x amount of days to expiring. Can anything be accomlished in this regard without using designer or code?

Hi,
AFAIK not directly.
But you might be able to run a Powershell script as scheduled task either locally ir on the server to query the list and send the email, so no code change in Sharepoint.

Normally I'd recommend Retenion Policies to fire up a WF that sends an email when the Date Threshold is breached;

Without being able to use Designer for a WF that creates problems for this approach.

Only other thing I could suggest (far from ideal) is the action to 'Move to another location'. That could potentially (and I've not tried it) be used to get an alert to fire from the destination list where the item is moved to.

I'm brainstorming here of course.
