Same for me. Just got 3 in a row and they are all the most recent FP deals, like it is notifying me of them all.

I have gotten like triple the notifications the past two days. I'm going to mute this app as it's very annoying.

in the android version you can access the settings by first going to profile and then tap the cog on the top right. in the "Frontpage Push Notification Settings" you should see the options to adjust Frontpage / DA / Forum notification settings. i imagine settings would be located in a similar location on the ios app.

Just gave that a try, we'll see if it works. Wonder why they changed this with no warning (it hadn't ever happened before a few days ago).

I have disabled frontpage notifications both through the slickdeals cog icon in the app, as well as through the notification settings in android. they still turn back on automatically! It's driving me crazy.

Problem even seems to be getting worse... Usually notifications turn back on by the next morning... Now they are resetting same day by afternoon...
