As much as I hate Reality TV, the unfortunate reality is that Travel Blogging is essentially Reality TV without the cameras or sex tapes.
I’m sure everyone has the usual blogs that you tune into daily, which are full of a whole host of characters, and when s%*t hits the fan or there is drama between bloggers (just read the comments), it is hard not to peel your eyes away from the screen (or at least the comment sections).
Reality TV is really only relevant for the second that it is on, so the same thing extends to any huge Mistake Fares or any other Breaking Deals.
It is pointless for me to tell you about them after the fact because it is already irrelevant or expired.
So as I talked about yesterday, the best current way to keep up with any “Breaking Deals” like the United 4 Mile First Class Mistake, $200 Travelocity Promo, or the $336 New York to Israel Mistake Fare, is by following FFU on Facebook & Twitter.
While both of these options are still great, a few Readers emailed me saying they can’t check Facebook & Twitter during work so were there any other way to keep in contact.
I did some research and I am now happy to announce 2 new features:
1. You Can Now Text / Call Me With Any Questions You Have
I am guessing most FFU Readers are adults so I don’t have to worry about getting any prank calls asking to speak to Seymour Butts, but in the event that you have a travel question or are having trouble booking something, you can either text or call me at 617-971-8467.
There is no questions too small and unless I am at Dinner or in a Meeting, I will try to get back to you ASAP.
You can also Email me, Facebook, or Tweet me, although texting is probably the quickest way to reach me.
2. You Can Now Receive Free FFU Breaking Deal Alerts Via Text Message
Since I realize that not everyone is online 24/7 like me, I have set up a free service so that I can mass blast out text messages when there is a breaking deal.
If you sign up, I promise I will only use it to contact you when there is an absolutely amazing deal, only I will be able to see your phone number, and I won’t sell your number to anyone.
If you are really paranoid, feel free to make a free Google Voice phone number and have it forward my texts to your personal cell phone. That is what I do.
Although this month has been fairly active with really HUGE mistakes deals, I’d say you can expect maybe 1 text a month from me.
If you are interested, simply follow the steps outlined in this post!
Once you are added to the list, anytime I send out a Breaking Deal Alert, you will get it!
It is that easy!
I have an unlimited text plan, but I don’t know if everyone else does.
So please check that you can receive text messages because most cell carriers charge 10 cents per a text message if you don’t have a text plan.
Anyways, I hope that helps everyone going forward!
If you have any better suggestions about anything for the site, please let me know.
I am always appreciative of feedback!
Don’t ever miss another FFU Update or Travel Deal!
