You can currently create a deal alert for say the hot deals forum but it would be nice if I could create one on a specific category in the hot deals forum.
Specifically I'm looking for a TV. I could obviously make a deal alert for the hot deals forum looking for words like TV, HDTV, LCD, plasma, etc. The thing is I have to list it all out and I may get a lot of false positives. Generally though most deal posters are good enough to put the deals in the proper category. There is a category called "Televisions (TVs)". Personally I find the category to be exactly what I need.
My current work around to go to the hot deals forum, select the "Televisions (TVs)" category, sort by the thread started date and mash refresh every 10 minutes.
Would be nice if SD could implement this feature. It could probably be expanded to say allow you to trigger deal alerts off of stores, features/specs and tags as well.
