I received an offer a few days ago via the Daily Scoop. I was planning on using it, but it’s not in my Recent Offers. How do I get it back?
Offers can be applicable for several days, but sometimes are only available for a limited time. On the left side of the Recent Offers Menu there is a graphic that indicates how long an offer is valid:
Offer expires in 1 day Offer expires in 2 days Offer expires in 3 days Offer expires in more than 3 days
The Daily Scoop application automatically removes expired offers. If the offer has disappeared from the Recent Offers Menu it cannot be retrieved. Don’t worry — new offers will soon be taking its place. Back to top

You are able to disable the Daily Scoop alert sound by choosing "Options" from within the "Recent Offers" menu. Changing the volume setting on your phone's master controls will also change the volume of the alert sound. While you are in the "Options" menu, you can also set your sound option to the following selections:

I was typing a text message when I received an offer via the Daily Scoop. Can I get back to my message draft?
The procedure for retrieving messages differs depending on your phone model. Most phones will not receive offers until you are finished sending your text messages. Some phones will allow you to simply dismiss the offer and return to the text you were entering. If this is not the case, you may be able to retrieve it by going into "Drafts" under the "Messages" folder in the main menu.Back to top
I don’t want a certain type of content; is there any way I can block specific offers in the Daily Scoop?
No, but you can let us know. Daily Scoop allows you to Rate an Offer—give it a rating out of five stars—that will help us to determine what offers users want most. Offers that do not generate interest are less effective and can then be removed or updated. Rest assured, Daily Scoop is always working to send you the most valuable and useful offers possible.Back to top
