I've set up several deal alerts and I haven't gotten any alerts even though I've seen several products matching my keywords over the past 2 days. Yes, I've checked the spam folder.

One of my keywords for an alert is "microSDHC." There's currently an item on the first page (12/19 at 6:16PM CST) that matches this exactly, but I never got an alert email.

Is this feature still experimental? Is it just for show?

I haven't received an alert in over a month. I've missed several deals cause of this.

Hi Jantonio82. Can you be more specific? What keywords did you have set (including commas if present) and which deal(s) do you feel it should have alerted you about?

SOrry for the delay. I have an alert set up for the Galaxy SIII. No specific keywords, but I have it set to "Watch this deal." So maybe it has something to with that. I have a few other keyword alerts, but I have not noticed any deals come up for those. Perhaps I will set a generic alert and see if I get anything.

I think it has to be same thing relisted for Watch This Deal to work, I'd always set up keywords to get a larger # of positive hits.

Yeah, that makes sense. The Galaxy S3 deals that have passed have the "watch this deal" button already lit, yet no notification. :-\ No luck with the keyword alerts I've set. #HDTV should have generated an alert when that Spectre HDTV deal Wendy up. Maybe I should clear all my alerts and start from scratch.

UPDATE: I'm still NOT receiving ANY deal notifications. I tried updating my email address, but no luck. :-/ Any suggestions are welcome.

Hi Jantonio82, can you give an example of what you set up and which deal(s) should have triggered an alert? Thanks!

I have an HDTV alert set using simply the term HDTV. I see a Vizio deal posted that should have alerted me.

"Vizio E3D470VX 47" 1080p 120Hz 3D LCD HDTV $590 at Tiger Direct"

I also have a "Watch this deal" tag on the "Asus Transformer Infinity 10.1" 32GB Tablet + Keyboard Dock", but received no alert when the deal was Posted at 6:23 PM on Thursday 09/27/12 by Ouragos.
