Deal Alert Question

alxshanti 5,817 480 December 10, 2015 at 06:52 PM
So, I am still struggling with the various deal alert notification categories. Some of them are self-explanatory, like "Email". "PM" I assume means you get something in your SlickDeals Inbox.

But this is where things get confusing for me. On the desktop, there is a category called "Notification". This same thing is called "Prompt" on my mobile. I am assuming that this is the pop-up you get when you refresh a SD page, or navigate to a new one. Am I right? Also, how does choosing the Notification/Prompt category affect mobile alerts, or does it?

The "Mobile" category is pretty clear. Just one question: how does it work? Do I get an audible prompt or something?

This all started to get confusing when I just recently set up my mobile for prompts on the most important deals, but I am getting inundated with alerts on the home screen.

Just trying make it all less overwhelming. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi alxshanti,

I'd be happy to assist.

On the desktop Deal Alerts management screen, the notification method "Notification" is the same as the "Prompt" option in the Slickdeals mobile apps. By having this setting enabled, you will receive on-site notifications the next time you visit a Slickdeals page on your desktop browser.

The mobile option will send you a push notification to the device associated with your Slickdeals account. Hopefully this answers your questions.
