Wow, I love this site. I don't even care that you are getting a commission off of every purchase (I hope you are for all your work). I keep checking for a particular item, pc2700 ddr, but is there a way that you could enter a keyword and get emailed when it's available??

In theory I like the idea and hope it could be made available, but IMO there would have to be some kind of extra filtering applied to the keyword somehow, otherwise you could end up with a sh*tload of emails actually unrelated to what you really wanted ... for example, could you imagine; You set up the keyword(s) PC2700 DDR for email notification from Ben's Bargains one day, and either get nothing for a few days ... or go away on vacation ... or for what-ever reason, you can't check your email too often or even forgot you set up a keyword notification ... in that time you forgot or couldn't check your email, PC2700 DDR is going on a fire sale everywhere and Ben's site gets flooded with PC2700 DDR updates, and/or there is a fire sale with multiple computer deals that have PC2700 DDR in their title or description ... could be an email nightmare when you finally get to checking that box that is now stuffed full of emails, many which aren't what you intended to receive, and maybe even exceeding your allocated email limitations!

Just make sure you don't use a work email address ... you might not have work for very long afterwards!

Though as I said earlier ... would be a great idea if it could be done reasonably and effectively, but IMO that would mean the ability to have some kind of extra checks/balances/flags set up to eliminate off-topic emails or too many emails; like category checking, so if you wanted memory and use the keywords PC2700 DDR, only actual memory deals would be emailed to you and computer deals involving [b:937b

Couldn't agree more. I wish I would get emails for specific items (video cards, HDTV's, pillows, etc..). This one has my vote.

Can we get email notifications when bacon logs in? This way, we can get our children off the internet? Thanks.


Same lame comments from the guy who befriends proven bacons. Your friend posted pictures of naked little boys and you approved of it. So that makes you a moron AND a bacon accomplice. Whereas you have nothing to back your claim plus, as a witness, you're an accomplice bacon. This is not a joke, milf_hunter. What I'm saying actually happened and is visible on the forum. You and your friends are sick perverts.


Get a new act.

sincerely,

How about starting an optional newsletter with specific deals that are specific to the taste of the user.
