Don’t miss out on a bargain! Set up your own email alerts on

Are you looking for tickets to a sold out gig? A specific camera lens  you can’t afford at retail price?

If you feel like you’re always missing out on the good deals, it’s time to use the email alert feature on our site.

What is an email alert?

It is an email sent to you as soon as an ad matching your criteria  is posted on

For example, you can set up an email alert to be notified as soon as an advert is posted in our Free Stuff section. That’s handy!

You can set up alerts for specific items such as Nikon Camera lenses or iPhone 4 covers, etc. You can even select a region and a price bracket.

How do I set up my email alerts?

All you need to do is create a search for the specific item you are looking for.

In the example below, I searched for Nikon lenses under €250.

Click on ” create email alert for this search” (green button on the top right-hand corner) and you will receive an email everytime a new item is posted in that specific category.

Remember: the more specific the better! You could end up receiving too many emails if your email alert is too general.

How do I remove my email alerts?

You can manage your email alerts via  your profile.

You can choose to deactivate them (to reactivate them at a later date) or delete them.

Hope this will help you find the best deals on Adverts!

Happy trading 🙂
