Noisy Shopper and RSS feeds
IF you wish to receive all the "Noisy Shopper" posts via RSS feed, you can subscribe to our special Noisy Shopper full-text RSS feed. This includes all the posts that have the "noisy shopper" tag.

IF you are subscribed to our main full-text RSS feed you are already receiving them, along with all the other Noisy posts.

An ideal use for the Noisy Shopper feed is to add it to your fastest newsreader, since some of the specials posted may be of the short-term or clearance variety, so the earlier you know, the more options you have. Usually desktop readers are considered to be faster than the online ones. So for example, you could subscribe to our full-text feed using Google Reader or Bloglines, and use a desktop reader (eg the free ones from NewsGator) for the Noisy Shopper feed.

If you are not familiar with RSS feeds, this post by Pro Blogger is a good starting point.
