Receive HOT DEALS via SMS?

Postby Curb71 » Mon Nov 21, 2011 9:41 pm

is this possible? I noticed there are many new ones per day and signing up to the email list only seems to get my new emails when a new stores bf ad is added? I'd like to receive every "hot deal" as an sms or via an rss feed or something.

I can't speak for the BFAds.net development team and whether or not they support SMS to a cell phone, but I am getting Target's deals texted to me daily. At this time I don't have a smart phone so it is using SMS as you asked about.

We may implement something similar to this next year. As if right now, we can't take on that project.

Actually I would prefer to see a Chat Room setup for the members of the board.

Built in one in the site. The one that got used before was off site if I recall.

It was off-site. Mike and I were hosting it on our servers but nobody ever came except him and I. There was an occasional straggler.

That's what I thought, However if it was attached to the Message Boards more people might come here.

I will agree with that...i always forgot the other one was there and then forgot how to get in etc, but if there was a quick messaging program added to this I think it would be awesome.
I want the sms messages too though

since its slowed down is this something that can be looked into? twitter uses something similar to be able to receive certain tweets via sms. it would be great if there was an option that said, "want to receive all the hot deals straight to your phone so you dont miss them? Enter your number here..."

I tried the app. it is pretty bad. nothing seems to work right on it. and it doesn't list any hot deal that I could find. and when I enabled push notifications nothing happened. Thanks for the suggestion though.
