As the hotukdeal RSS (and custom) feeds seem to be working here's a good way to get notified of filtered hot, or new deals. The latter is obviously useful if you want to know about a deal BEFORE it gets hot.

This uses ifttt.com tool. Go check it out. Its free.

eg1. get an email when a HotUKDeal matches your filter with this recipe
ifttt.com/rec…183

eg2. get a text message for the same ifttt.com/rec…253

To get a notification of a NEW deal, create a customised RSS feed at HotUKdeals at hotukdeals.com/tag…ngs
Then create an IFTTT receipe from the above, changing the RSS hot feed to the custome feed you just created.

Any Qs on IFTTT just shout.

You could do that but you can only filter on the tag. Or you could create a filter in your email client.

ifttt lets you define a filter on your custom RSS feed.

^ That's cool. I have ifttt recipes with filters on i3, i5 and i7 at the moment (the techs amongst you will know what I'm looking for :-)

That's a great JR pic by the way.
I have alerts for 'misprice' 'missprice' and 'brought' so I can correct those who say it instead of 'bought'.
Can anyone help with the filters?
I am looking for the HUKD channel, I am thinking I need to do something different

@ Musicrab,

I have set this up at last.
https://ifttt.com/recipes/65147-hukd-hot-deals-custom-email
I added a recepie and modded it, as per instructions

In the keyword field, are search phrases separated by commas?
e.g. " Gillette, sky broadband, Bogof, Amazon lightening deal "

I see BOGOF in my rss feed, I entered BOGOF in The keywords
I pressed the "Check button", should I not get an email?

Maybe things don't happen immediately?

Thank you for any help

Smose
