delay in receiving emails
« on: January 05, 2017, 06:01:59 PM »
Hi, I have not been registered until today, but have been receiving these emails for a few years.
I find that I don't receive them until the end of the day at which time most of the deals have expired.
Is there any way to receive these emails earlier in the day like the other users are?

Welcome to the forums. Dan has a great write up on the main site (DDMS).

No. For real time deals, sign up for twitter text notifications.
ETA - link removed, tageed-lee's was better.

What makes you think other users are getting emails earlier?

I see other users posting they got the dell ssd hard drives at 11am and 12pm and I didn't receive the emails (every day) until 5pm.

Well then you have a few options.
1. You can stick around here since many main site deals originate here.
2. You can keep checking for updates the DDMS every hour, although you'll probably miss a bunch of deals that died before you checked.
3. You can be a sensible person and follow Dan on Twitter like everyone else and set up text alerts so you immediately get notified of deals that are posted to DDMS.

All three of these are better options that to keep complaining about how everyone else gets emails before you. Everyone gets them at the same time. At the end of the day Dan just send out a list of all posts made that day. The world isn't out to get you and nobody is better off than you are.

He wasn't complaining.

Is there any way to receive these emails earlier in the day like the other users are?

  He was asking how we get the info sooner. No need to jump down his throat.
