How many site features are you taking advantage of?
- Discuss or ask about whatever is on your mind and dig deeper into all kinds of deals at DDF (DansDeals Forums) at dansdeals.com/forums.

After you register just click on the appropriate forum (Trip/Destination Reports, Credit Cards, Goods For Sale, Up In The Air, etc.) and you can search for information (always start with a search as your question has probably already been answered!), add your own new thread topic, or reply to any existing one. It’s fun and easy! Need help with registering or getting started? Just post a comment right on this post and I’ll help you out!
- Join the 9,000 people who are following @DansDeals on our twitter page at twitter.com/DansDeals for instant alerts of every single deal. You will have the option to subscribe to get a text message every time there is an update to the site (and the option to turn off texts at night)! Just sign up for a twitter account, start following dansdeals.com, and setup your phone to receive text messages whenever there is an update from selected accounts that you follow. You caneven specify which hours of the night not to bother you. Once you setup your mobile device just go to twitter.com/DansDeals, click on the drop-down menu next to the blue “Following” button on the top-right, and select, “Turn on mobile notifications.”
- Join the 5,454 people following the DansDeals.com facebook group who used to get instant email alerts of only the hottest deals before facebook rudely turned off the “email group” feature. Now I’m not really sure what to make of what it’s become…
- Subscribe to the DansDeals.com RSS feed at http://www.dansdeals.com/feed, or to the DansDeals comments RSS feed at http://www.dansdeals.com/comments/feed where you can get updates on all the recent comments, no matter which deal they’re posted on.
- 6,456 people receive a daily digest of everything posted on Dansdeals.com via Google’s Feedburner service! Bear in mind that with this service you will receive emails a day after a deal is posted, so there’s a decent chance that by the time you get the email the deal will be dead already…which is why I prefer the twitter option. It seems to be a favorite pastime of Feedburner subscribers to email me asking how dare I send them an email of deals after the deal is already dead. At any rate to subscribe just locate the “Google Feedburner” section in the sidebar of this site, enter your email address, and subscribe. You can also use the Feedburner RSS feed at http://feeds.feedburner.com/Dansdeals
- Post comments and share your thoughts right on the site under every single deal posting! Participating and interacting is what makes this site fun!
