Stuff Alert

Stuff Alert

Do you like to find bargains on eBay? Do you get upset when you can’t find what you’re looking for on eBay? I know I do, but it doesn’t have to be like that anymore. Now, when I can’t find what I’m looking for, I can add the item to this Web site and it will let me know when it becomes available for auction!

It works in just four easy steps!

Step One – Register for an account. It’s absolutely free! To sign up, just click on the red arrow that says Join Now, Free! It will ask for your first and last name and for you to create a username and password. Then just provide a working e-mail address and fill in the verification code. You can also fill in your gender, city and country, but they’re optional. They will then send you a confirmation letter to the e-mail address you provided.

You have to activate your account before you can start using it, so it’s very important to provide a working e-mail address. You may also want to check your spam folder for the e-mail. That’s where Yahoo! put mine.

Step Two – Once you’re logged in and activated, click on the Create New Alert button. Now, type in the name of the item you’re looking for. For example, My Little Pony Cuteasaurus. Then click on the Find button. It will search eBay for the item and if it doesn’t find it, they’ll send you to the page to make a new alert for it.

Step Three – Let’s say it didn’t find your item, so you’re ready to make an alert. Type in the keywords you want it to search for, such as My Little Pony Cuteasaurus. Make sure the checkbox is checked for instant e-mail alerts and then click on the Submit button near the bottom of the page.

Step Four – When the item you’re looking for appears on eBay, Stuff Alert will send you an e-mail letting you know. Yep, it’s that easy!
