I got an email from a reader who was upset that my site had so many deals from states outside of Utah – it was clogging up her Google Reader with deals that didn’t apply to her.
So I spent all weekend working up a solution I think will benefit everyone from every state!
FIRST: Subscribe via RSS (Google Reader is RSS) or by email for deals in your state only here! Infact, you can subscribe for lite or full versions.
- Lite state subscription- Gives you every in-store deal applicable to your state.
- Full state subscription- Gives you every in-store deal applicable to your state, plus all other online deals, freebies, printable coupons and deals that are applicable nationwide. Basically, every post on my site except ones that are for a store which is not located in your state or for deals specific to other states.
- Oddly: For some reason when you subscribe the name at the top of the feed will show a category, usually a store name, at the top of the feed. Don’t worry, if you look through the feed, it is only showing your state deals. It is just listing the first of many categories which are included in the feed. So don’t worry about it; it’s the correct feed!
SECOND: Changes to which deals are shown on my home page:
To make my home page more applicable to everyone, only store deals, freebies, printable coupons, etc… which are nationwide (or close to it) will be shown. All deals on the Cuckoo Deals Map will still be there, you just need to select your state to see store deals & state/region specific deals. This is important because I am working with other bloggers towards getting deals for every state nationwide soon on the map! If you are a interested in making money posting deals for your state, email me.
Utah readers: I started posting less Utah deals because of my national readers getting bugged. But now that they can subscribe to their state deals which won’t show Utah deals, I am going to start posting more Utah deals! Utah deals will no longer show up on my home page though. To see them, either subscribe via RSS or email to Utah deals, OR just click on the Cuckoo Deals Map and on Utah select “Utah Deals” to view my infamous in-store finds at Macey’s, Fresh Market, Utah offers and more.
All other states: go to my Subscribe Via RSS or Email page and select your state’s lite or full feed!
What do you think of these changes? Helpful or not? Anything else I can do to ease your time searching for deals? Leave a comment below and let me know.
