How to Get Text Alerts from Nouveau Cheap


You can receive a text message via Twitter whenever I post new content on my blog, or post a special deal/sale update that I think you should know about. You do not need to have a Twitter account to take advantage of this function. 

PLEASE NOTE: standard text messaging fees apply. This is going to vary depending on your cell phone service provider and plan (if you have unlimited texts, then you're all set. If you don't, then please keep in mind that you may receive up to six texts from me per day, but usually about three). You will not receive additional fees from Twitter for using this feature.

1) Text ON nouveaucheap to 40404 (be sure to type uppercase ON, space, nouveaucheap. Do NOT add an "@" symbol to my handle). 

2) You're done! Every single time I post something new on my blog, I post a tweet. That means that you'll receive a text message from Twitter every time I've tweeted.

In the event that you want to stop receiving texts from me, just do this:

Text OFF nouveaucheap to 40404 and the texts from me will stop.

Please keep in mind that occasionally I may post something late at night (especially if there's a hot deal that happens to go live when I'm still awake). So if you are the type of person who leaves your phone on when you're sleeping and you have a loud text tone that you do not mute when you're sleeping, please don't yell at me for possibly waking you up in the middle of the night. It's rare and I will ONLY do it if there's a really hot deal happening. Just a warning!

I hope this helps, and if you have any other questions about this Twitter service, click HERE.

    1. Lol!!! Well my loyal blog readers always get the tips FIRST, because it takes me a minute to post the tweets (I don't use a service to auto tweet because those are sometimes unreliable). So blog readers slget an extra few minutes notice before I tweet, if that's any consolation? :)

  10. If you have the twitter app on your phone you can just turn on mobile notifications and avoid the whole text message. You then get up a banner/pop up when you post. I am cool with turning on notifications but it needs to be limited and not spammy. Too many beauty bloggers use twitter to post cheezy selfies and stupid inspirational quotes, etc.

  13. I texted "ON nouveaucheap" to 40404 and received a text only about tweeting, not texting. I don't want to miss out! How do I get texts? BTW, I love your blog! 😍

  14. Hi G, in the past day or so, you started tweeting alerts with links in 2 texts instead of 1. Any chance you'll be going back to just 1? If not, that's okay, but I'll have to turn off txt notifications because it is distracting when I'm in the middle of working. I can usually keep working with 1 txt interruption but 2 makes me lose it for some reason. Pathetic, I know. Thank you very much!

    1. You should probably unsub then. Sorry! I posted this week about the issues I'm having with Twitter right now and this is the ONLY remedy I can come up with to ensure that everyone sees my tweets/text messages. So many readers are getting an error message right now that says my tweets have been deleted (even though I have not deleted them) that the only way I can ensure that EVERYONE sees my alerts is to tweet the link separately. That way, people can see the alert, and then those who can click my links successfully can then proceed to my blog via the separate tweet. If I only tweet once with the link, a large segment of my readership cannot view the tweet at all. I have three help tickets on file with Twitter and no response so far. So I have no idea how long this is going to continue and I have no way to fix it myself. So it's probably best to unsub if you can't handle the two tweets because I honestly don't know how long this temporary fix is going to last. Thanks!!

    2. Oh!! Work has been so busy I didn't realize all of this was happening with your tweets/texts; I hope it all soon gets resolved because your system is awesome. Okay! Thank you so much for explaining!
