Frontpage Deal/Deal Alerts Notifications

59 13 September 12, 2016 at 12:59 PM
I have the Slickdeals App on my Galaxy S4.

I get several notifications per day in regards to the Frontpage Deals being updated. I really could not care any less about the Frontpage Deals. I just want to be notified when my individual Deal Alerts that I've set up are triggered.

Is there a setting to prevent being notified about the Frontpage Deals and JUST be notified for my own Deal Alerts? I searched around in my user settings, etc and couldn't find how to change this. Thanks.

Hi! Glad you reached out. You can definitely change what type of push notifications you receive on your phone through the app settings.

Steps to change your push notification settings:
  1. Tap "More" in the top navigation
  2. Tap "Settings"
  3. Scroll down to where it says "Push Notification Settings"
  4. Since you are only interested in receiving notifications on your Deal Alerts, turn off "Frontpage Notifications" and "Forum Notifications" and make sure "Deal Alert Notifications" are turned on
I have attached a screenshot below for your reference. Hopefully that works for you!

I'm not getting any notifications on my S7. Settings appear to be correct. All notifications enabled.

We have heard several reports related to this issue; we are investigating and very sorry for the inconvenience. In the meantime, turn notifications off, then back on and this may correct the issue - still looking into root cause and will update here with more info.

FWIW, notifications on my Nexus 6P (7.1.1) came back after a couple rounds of turning notifications off and back on.

How can I turn off the notifications sound only. So that I can read the notifications in the free time.
