Black Friday deals are in full swing and Cyber Monday deals are coming 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 be sure that you follow @DansDeals on Twitter and that you are enrolled.
This post has screenshots and describes the simple process for enabling text messages whenever a deal is posted on this site. All you need to do is signup for Twitter, enable SMS messages, click to follow @DansDeals, and then use the drop-down menu on the @DansDeals page to enable mobile notifications from DansDeals. The whole process won’t take more than a minute!
You can also opt into notifications by just sending an SMS to 40404 with the text: follow @DansDeals However you may only receive a limited number of daily alerts via that method and you won’t be able to control what hours of the night you want to ignore notifications.
There are over 88,500 DansDeals followers on Twitter, so be sure to take advantage of the best deals as soon as you get the alert!
Have a deal tip? Post it on the DansDeals Forum’s Amazon & Walmart Deals Board or the regular Deals/Deal Requests Board for deals that aren’t related to Amazon or Walmart. If your deals are featured on DansDeals you’ll earn hat tips that can earn you rewards. Past rewards have included an all-expenses paid DDF DO dinner at Mike’s Bistro for people with at least 10 hat tips, a $1,000 Amazon gift card, a bottle of 40 year old single malt scotch with a $500 Amazon gift card and a set of United’s hub city collectible amenity kits, and several other prizes for contributors. There’s a DDF thread keeping track of the people with the most hat tips.
You can also email deal tips to me at Dan@DansDeals.com, but please note that I’m unable to answer personal emails.
Happy deal hunting!
