    Get MS-DEFCON Text Alerts


    I got an newsletter from Woody’s with supposedly a link to receive text alerts for MS-DEFCON. On clicking on it, it took me to a site that said I had to be a Plus Member, which I am. It then wanted me to choose a price. I don’t understand this at all. I did then sign in and tried the link again with the same results. Is there a cost for these alerts? Is there a link inside the AskWoody itself? How do I sign up for these alerts?

      Cell phone notifications via text: If you are a Plus Member, you can sign up for our SMS text alert service. To cover the extra costs associated with the hosting and SMS service for this exclusive benefit, we ask for a small fee of your choosing. One you have signed up you’ll get a text message whenever the MS-DEFCON level changes.

      OK, thank you for that information.

      I need to ask. How is it charged? Do you keep my credit card on file? Can I choose a monthly amount and pay it by the year? Sorry, possibly I did get far enough in the sign up process but I don’t see these answers to the point I have gotten so far.

      You can pay via paypal, amazon or stripe.  We don’t keep the CC on file but obviously those services have to have something linked in.  It’s charged monthly.  I don’t have a yearly option set up at this time but plan to do so.
