What's Your Preferred Option for Notifications

What options do you use to get notified of new bargain listings in your preferred categories? I tried Twitter but got overwhelmed. The iOS app doesn't send notifications (unless I'm doing something wrong??) and IFTTT have become a paid service so that's pretty much off the table too.

  • You can get an email or notification via OzBargain bell menu for each category. e.g. Alcohol.

      You can type any item you would like alerts for into the search bar and click on 'create alert'

        have you experienced this working - actually notifying you? I can see a number with a red background for alerts that i’ve missed when i visit the website but i don’t receive a notification at the time of the successful match. Maybe i’m doing something wrong

        I was hoping the ios app would give me popup notifications but no.

        • Search Alerts definitely work.

          Looking at your account, you have numerous alerts that you've already set up. I can see at least 5 notifications in the past 3 hours. The menu only shows 8 in the dropdown box of alerts but you can see all of them in notifications.

          Also if you want to get an alert every time there is a new deal for a store, then you can hit the subscribe button on the store page. e.g. Shopback. Better than putting a search alert for the word "shopback".

      Search for Airpods Pro, and then top right hand corner > Create Alert

        I've found those alerts to be less than timely when chasing a ps5

          Email notifications can take a while, but you can select 'Web' in your Subscription settings, which is usually much quicker.

    I don't need notifications because I check OzBargain so often, they would be useless.
