The number of texts you will receive will be determined by the number of merchants that are willing to make special offers and dealz available to our community. Of course, more merchants will be willing to make more and better offers as our community grows. However, we promise that we will never abuse the privilege of having you as part of the community here at TxtDealz.com.
Absolutely. We hate to see anyone leave the community, but we know that situations change. We will respect your decision to remove you from the community should you decide to leave. We will send you a final email asking you to give us a little feedback so that we can help to make the community better in the future and hopefully you will choose to rejoin us again at some point.
Occasionally, we may need to send information to you that is not best formatted through the text system. To do this, we’ll need your email address information so that we may contact you. We do ask that you keep a current email address in our system so that we may contact you this way. We promise that we’ll never abuse the privilege of having you in our community and we will only contact you by email if it is necessary. Additionally, some merchants may wish to make special offers to our community that would require that we use email. Regardless, be assured that we’ll never SPAM you, nor will we sell your information to anyone else. Your email address (as well as your text information) will be used solely for the purposes of bringing great deals to you.
No. That’s the beauty of the system. There are no paper coupons to keep up with, nothing to print, nothing to lose. It’s all on your cell phone – which most of us have with us all the time. No more looking for the coupon books around town, searching the internet to print a coupon (and then leaving it in the printer), and no more, “Darn, I left it in the other car.” Come on, admit it – we know it’s happened. That’s why we came up with this concept.
That’s the easy part. When you receive a coupon and are interested in the offer, simply visit the merchant during the valid time period, purchase whatever is offered, show them the message on your cell phone and they’ll give you the Dealz. It’s that simple. No paper coupons, no hassle – just show them your TxtDealz and save money. No waiting to see if enough people take advantage of the Dealz. No limited number of Dealz available to you. Just pure savings.
No. This is a completely FREE service to you the consumer. The merchants that make offers to our community are covering the cost of operations for this service.
Absolutely not. We value your membership in our community and would never do anything to jeopardize the community spirit that we’re trying to foster here. Your text number and your email information are for the use of TxtDealz ONLY – and no one but our team will have access to that information.
We can understand your concern – especially considering that we get thousands of SPAM emails each day to our inbox. We will not send you SPAM on your cell phone for two reasons. #1 Sending text messages costs money – unlike email which is free. #2 The penalties for sending SPAM to a text messaging system are even more severe than email. We would not do anything to jeopardize our relationship with the community here and we don’t wish to pay huge fines for SPAMing cell phones.
The advantages are many, but here are some that come to mind. First is you don’t have to keep up with coupons – just your cell phone. Second, many of our merchants are willing to offer greater Dealz through our service simply because the marketing costs are so much lower for them. Third, this is definitely the GREEN option. Since there are no printed coupons, there is no paper to waste. I am continually amazed at how much paper is wasted on paper coupons and paper advertising. Since this method is completely electronic, there is no paper involved.
Generally, coupons will be sent out to the community on days that they are available and at times appropriate for the offer. For example, if one of our business members decides to offer a lunch special on Monday, that coupon would be sent out at approximately 10:30 AM on Monday. That helps you because you don’t have to remember the coupon for days before you can use it, plus it gives you time to make plans for lunch with your friends. Likewise, a dinner coupon would be sent out late afternoon so that you can make plans as your near the end of the work day.
Technically, you can; however, since it is a forwarded coupon, information necessary to validate the authenticity of the text coupon may get lost in the forward and your friend may be denied use of the coupon. That doesn’t help anyone. The simplest method is to suggest to all your friends that they sign up for this FREE* service NOW. It will not cost them anything to join and the value they receive should be great. Plus, if they don’t like the Txt coupons they receive, they can simply leave the community.
That depends upon the offer from our business members. Some business members will run dealz designated for only certain days, others will run dealz for only certain times, while yet others will run ongoing dealz that span days, weeks, and potentially even months.
As a general rule, probably not. However, some of our business members have stated that they welcome our community to keep and reuse the Txt Coupons because that means that they’re coming back again and again. Occasionally, our business members will offer coupons for items that are completely FREE without requiring you to purchase anything else. On those occasions, we ask that you respect the business member and use the coupon only once – deleting it after you use it. Otherwise, those types of offers may not be available in the future.
At present, we don’t have any coupons that would require being emailed. However, we have that capability and the technology in place to do that. For example, if a business member wanted to send a one time use coupon for something extra special, we would probably use email for that coupon with a text message informing you of that coupon. The coupon that you would receive would be designated for you only and you would be able to use it only once.
Absolutely. Everyone with a cell phone that can receive Txt messages can take advantage of this service. Have them all sign up and everyone can save money when they’re out.
Due to the popularity of this marketing method, redemption rates are very high. Therefore, we sometimes have to limit the number of dealz that are distributed so that we don’t overwhelm the member business and cause long service times for our community.
The locations for use will be defined in the Txt Coupon. If the offer is limited to specific locations, that will be stated in the TxtDealz message.
Simple. Please complete the Business Suggestion form right here on TxtDealz.com. Also, next time you visit that business, encourage them to become a member business. Maybe even give the owner/manager a call and encourage them to look at our web site – www.txtdealz.com. We’ll contact the business about becoming a member of our community.
Absolutely NOT. That’s the beauty of TxtDealz.com and our SMS Text System. All you need is a phone that is capable of receiving a Txt message – and most phones today are able to receive Txt messages. However, you may need to add that to your plan with your carrier.
That is a great question – because we all know that “There is NO FREE lunch!”. The answer is simple though. The merchants that are sending you these great offers pay for the privilege of extending these offers to our community. This pays for the cost of actually sending you the text message and the operations of TxtDealz.com. You pay nothing to be a part of the community and get all the great dealz sent directly to you. However, message and data rates from your cell carrier may apply.
