Our team at Thrifter spends all day sorting through deals, writing about new products, and sharing our favorite price drops on social media. We spend a lot of hours and put forth our best work to help make your online shopping experience a little better and a lot more informed. Everything we do is for you, our readers and followers, so it makes sense that we continue to explore new ways to engage with you.
That's why we are setting up a Discord server called "Thrifter Deals and Shopping." We want to interact with you in real-time, answer your questions, and help you find your way through the minefield that is online shopping. With Black Friday right around the corner, this is just another way for you to get to the heart of the internet's real and exciting deals.
Join us on Discord using this link. We will have open channels for a variety of different subjects, including regular deal hunting, Black Friday shopping, and more. We'll even pop into the voice channels from time to time to answer your questions.
What is Discord?
Think of Discord like an old-school chatroom with modern tech. It's an online watercooler for all of us to gather around and talk about the goings-on of the day. It is a free VoIP application you can use on any platform, including your mobile devices and both Windows and Mac computers. You don't even need to download anything if you don't want to because it is accessible through your web browser.
Why is Thrifter on Discord?
Primarily because we can. Deals are not always black and white. Black Friday is chaos. Twitter only allows for limited communication. Our purpose is to find new ways to engage with you, learn about the sort of deals you like, answer questions you might have, and grow our community. Our one server will have multiple rooms for both text-based chatting and voice-based communication. You'll be able to share links, ask questions, drop in funny GIFs, and communicate with our team here at Thrifter in ways you never could before.
How do I get it?
In order to join Discord you will need to create a username for it. This is a simple process done on the Discord homepage and requires only your email, a nickname, and a password. Once you've done that, click on our invite link to join the Thrifter server. Using the Discord homepage, you can download the Discord app to your computer or mobile device or just use the application through your browser. We recommend the software though because it's very easy to use and helpful for navigating between servers and channels.
How do I join your server?
It really is just as easy as clicking on this link. Once you do that, and you've accepted the invite from James, you'll find the Thrifter logo popup on the left-hand side of the Discord user interface. If it hasn't opened by default, click on that Thrifter logo. You'll see a variety of channels open up, including a place for #deals-discussion and a voice channel for shopping help. Feel free to say hi or start asking questions right away. On the right hand side of the app, you can see who is online.
Who are the Thrifter people on Discord?
There will be a variety of people from all across the Mobile Nations sites using the Thrifter Discord server. If you want to talk to someone specifically who works for Thrifter, look for our names under the Team Thrifter category. Our team names are: DannyDeals, jareddipane, JDatThrifter, Louryn, and ThrifterAlex. Plus, we'll always be logged in with the main Thrifter account. Look on the right-hand side of the Discord app for a list of users in the Thrifter server, including those who are online at any moment.
Thrifter on Discord is just one of the newer initiatives we are taking for the Black Friday holiday shopping season. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and sign up for the Black Friday newsletter for all the other information we have coming out.
