Option C: WhatsApp push notifications.
WhatsApp is a very good option for push notifications, though sometimes these can have a slight delay.
WhatsApp has rolled out its newest feature ‘Communities’ which finally allows us to send deal alerts to your WhatsApp without you having to share your number publicly. With groups people can see your number and lead to spam and stalkers as has happened before.
In order for the links we share to be clickable, you will need to save an admins phone number to your contacts. Please save 216-302-4839 or any of the other admin phone numbers in the community.
Option D: In-browser push notifications
When you first visit DansDeals.com you should have the option to be notified of new posts. If you said “No thanks” you can still turn them on by clicking on the notification bell icon on the bottom left of the site:
Alternatively you can click on the secure icon in your browser’s URL bar and then editing the notifications settings to allow or block notifications in order to turn them on or off:
Option E: If you don’t have a smartphone, then you’ll want SMS alerts
Update 2023: GroupMe is no longer sending out links for SMS alerts. You can always go to DansDeals.com when a deal is posted or you can subscribe to notifications with links from WhatsApp, Twitter, Telegram, and more.
You will need internet access to setup a GroupMe account to start getting SMS alerts, but you won’t need to use it again after you set it up and you won’t need to download any apps.
Unfortunately, SMS alerts no longer include the direct link to a deal, but you can always view deals by going to DansDeals.com.
These alerts can sometimes have long delays.
Note that you will not be joining a mass group with this option, you will only get SMS directly from DansDeals.
Step 1: Signup for a GroupMe account here with your email address and then enter the cell phone number on which you want to receive deal alerts.
(Note: If you already have a GroupMe account or have the GroupMe app, ensure from the settings menu that “receive messages via SMS” is enabled and then skip to step 3.)
Step 2: Verify your number with GroupMe via a PIN and click start chatting. You can click “text me the pin” if you don’t receive it:
Step 3: Click here to enable SMS notifications of new DansDeals posts.
You’ll have to login to your newly created GroupMe account and verify the PIN they will send to your cell phone.
Step 4: Click the allow button to finish enabling DansDeals SMS notifications to your phone:
You will then be forwarded back to DansDeals with a confirmation that SMS notifications have been set up successfully.
There is no need to download the GroupMe app, though you can do so if you want GroupMe push notifications instead of SMS alerts.
Option F: Kosher Telegram for Android
Telochat offers a filtered kosher version of Telegram for Android.
You won’t see any images in groups unless you request access to the group and the request is approved.
You can click here for the @DansDeals channel to follow us and request access to view images.
