Sign Up For Desktop Notifications & Never Miss A Deal Again

How to Subscribe

I’ve just added a new feature to the site and that’s the ability to sign up for notifications. Signing up is easy:

  • Click the bell icon in the bottom right corner
  • Follow the prompts
  • If you can’t find the bell icon, try disabling your adblocker or whitelisting this site.

 

Whenever we post a new article you’ll receive a notification that looks something like this:

 

As always we try to use titles that reflect the posts content as accurately as possible so you don’t need to click through to an article you have no interest in. I think/hope this will be useful to some readers. If you see any issues with it, please let me know as I am still making changes to the set up and implementation. Notifications are instantaneous after we hit the publish button, whereas notifications via Twitter and other platforms have a delay.

Keep in mind this is only available on the following browsers:

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Safari

Same here. First time I would allow it and I actually want to try it now. *sigh* The bar is pretty high now for any other sites I follow.

Great stuff.

While at it, I get a mixed content warning from Firefox on this site, linking to this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/mixed-content-blocking-firefox?redirectlocale=en-US&as=u&redirectslug=how-does-content-isnt-secure-affect-my-safety&utm_source=inproduct

Apparently there some stuff (images?) that are not downloaded through HTTPS, hence that warning.

well if ur readers are really serious about notifications then they will use Twitter + IFTT and SMS and simultaneously notify other systems. of course desktop browser based systems are fine but its only one vector of awareness.

doc, my suggestion for Twitter is to create a tag. like [New Post] or [Quick Deal] or whatever. that way people can fifilter. u respond to people on Twitter and so dont need those triggering anything. just saying.

Is it possible to reserve this for only more substantive features?

Love the site, but don’t give two shits about some regional bank with a $100 checking account bonus.
