Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are well underway and deals will be rolling in from now through next week.
Not long ago you had to shlep or camp out to get the best deals, but these days you can find the best deals from the comfort of your home.
The catch is that many deals will only last for a very short period of time, so you’ll want to get alerted about the deals.
Here are a few options to do so.
1. Use Twitter to enable instant SMS alerts:
Step 1: Signup for a free Twitter account. (Once you setup this quick process there will be no need to visit Twitter if you don’t want to.)
Step 2: Click here to add your phone number to Twitter.
You’ll need to verify your cell phone number.
Step 3: Click here to go to the @DansDeals page. Click on the follow button and then click on the bell icon next to the follow button:
Step 4: Click here to go to the SMS notifications page. Scroll down and click on the box next to Tweets as shown below. You will now receive instant SMS notifications of deals! You can click on “View users” to see which Twitter accounts you are receiving SMS notifications from.
You can always turn off SMS notifications in the future by unchecking that box.
If you change cell phone providers you will need to undo this process and do it again from scratch to re-enable text message alerts.
There are over 95,000 DansDeals followers on Twitter, so be sure to take advantage of the best deals as soon as you get the alert!
Post will be made at all hours of the day through Cyber Monday, so be sure to set your phone to silent at night if you don’t want to be disturbed 😀
