Plastic Jungle’s Notification Feature Puts You in Control of the Discounts
Fellow-Jungler Marcy here to share gift card discounts and how to pay less than face value on most anything.
One of the best ways you can put Plastic Jungle discounts to work for you is by taking 10 minutes to set up Notifications.
What are Notifications?
A personalized email from Plastic Jungle which contains the availability, value, and cost of gift cards you want. You decide if you want these emails to be sent to you daily or immediately when a gift card you want becomes available.
Here’s an example of one of my recent Notifications:
How to Set Up Your Notifications
1. Go to www.plasticjungle.com
2. Click “Log In” on the upper right menu
3. If you already have an account, sign in. If you do not yet have an account, fill in the email and password fields, select “I’m a New User”, review Plastic Jungle’s Terms and Conditions and then check the box to agree (if you agree), then click “Log In”
4. Once logged in, click “My Account” on the upper right menu.
5. Then click the tab labeled “Notifications”
6. Add all the stores you are interested in.
For instance, if you wanted to add Home Depot…
- Click the drop down menu labeled “Merchant” and select “Home Depot & Expo”
- Moving to the right, if there is a discount threshold you desire, enter that in the “Minimum Discount” field. (You can leave this field blank if you have no preference. That’s what I do.)
- Continuing right, if there is a value you want, enter the minimum and maximum amounts in the appropriate fields. (You can leave these fields blank as well if you have no preference. That’s what I do unless I have a specific purchase I am hunting to get a good deal on.)
- Choose if you want “Daily Notifications” and/or “Immediate Notifications” (I prefer both.)
Plastic Jungle Notifications are very helpful particularly if you know stores you frequent. (If you’re not sure, your bank and/or credit card statements are a great indicator.) Consider always keeping a set amount of Plastic Jungle gift cards to your favorite stores on hand so can be ready to stack your discounted gift cards with the best sales.
