I get constant complaints from people who subscribe to the daily email digest of deals posted on DansDeals that the deals are dead by the time they get the email the following day.
That’s why I recommend following @DansDeals on Twitter to get instantly alerted of every deal.
Lots of people have asked for a step-by-step guide to get text messages when there is a deal. Here’s how to do it via Twitter. This whole process will just take a few minutes and you’ll never have to logon to Twitter again if you don’t want to.
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!
You will never again be kicking yourself for missing another deal!
