Twitter Feed for Sizzling Deals- on DansDeals.com
« on: September 01, 2013, 10:33:06 AM »
Would anyone have an interest in a twitter feed (or some other mechanism) which would only include deals above a specific hotness level (i.e. sizzling)? I don't want to get emails/texts for deals which I can browse on a daily basis, but deals which will be dead within an hour and are very hot I want to get notified right away. Any other interest?

Make a DDF thread that people will post in only if there is a very hot deal and subscribe to it.
I think it might even exist already
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Guess that could work. I still think it would be better if it was controlled by you and linked directly to the site. All you would need to do is add a hashtag like #hot and people could create custom alerts based on that.

What's hot for one person (cheap tickets) might not be hot for the next (cheap gap clothes) or the next (cheap laptop) or the next (cheap diapers), or the next (new cc offer), etc...

+1 this would vary widely depending on the person. For me discount gc or prepaid cc is whats considered hot. I don't think that this would really work as each person is different.

True. But there are always deals where you'll post Hot or Sizzling, and those are the ones he wants filtered.
Live forever or die trying.

It exists. But kinda useless since no one posts in it.

yuneeq is correct. I was referring to objectively sizzling deals. Although I've noticed Dan stopped pre-fixing alot of his deals. Intentional?

No thanks. Not really interested in stealing the job from some lowly script :)

I think you're a lot better off ignoring the texts you don't need than relying on the deals you do want making onto the "hot" list...

I think we can just trust Dan to use his judgement as to when a deal is hot, and anyone that wants to be sure not to miss anything can just get the texts from Twitter

How about 3 seperate threads

Sizzling sale items (gap, banana, diapers, heaphones, laptops etc)

Sizzling tickets (Jet blue 90%, $300 israel, HK glitch)

Sizzling Credit card offers (100k Plat)

Dan always categorizes his posts on the main site. (eg. Credit cards, free stuff, trip reports etc) So maybe a filter can be set up to only be notified of new posts in certain categories.
