Not getting daily alerts?

I seem to have stopped getting daily alerts in my e-mail. If I do get em it is late at night (after 8 PM for the day) and many of the deals have expired. Everything in my settings are up to date and none of the alerts have expired. What gives Confused

What stores/products are you not receiving them for..thatyou had set up.

Also, did you ever get a message to add your zipcode? If so, did you add it or ignore the message?

Are these daily summary DAs? If so..they go out at midnight Pacific. So it would be a compilation of the days deals. If you want them sooner be sure they are for individual deals and set to notify immediately.


*I am not a dev so the questions I asked would be to help the dev once they step in here Smilie

Thanks Schooby......I get my daily deal alerts around 8:30 PM Pacific. So the todays deals 9/4 arrived on 9/4 at 8:30 PM Pacific. What is frustrating is some deals I get show are "sorry you missed this deal" and I am thinking that it is because it arrived in the evening instead of the AM. You would think it is set up to arrive in the AM, no? I have cut my dealt down to about 10.......all set to daily. I have one set to 5 thumbs or more and as a test set it to instant......that day I got 300+ extra emails which was a total pain. As I don't have the time to police my e-mail 24/7 I guess I have to live with the way it is set up, as poor as it is, not my site so I have to just deal with it. I don't really look for particular deals from a certain store so I rely on the "daily alert list" rated for 5 thumbs "daily". It ALWAYS arrives in the evening so I have to just grin and bare it.....

No, you got the deals for the 5th, and a bug listed it as the 4th.

We can't know deals in advance, so daily alerts will always miss deals if they expire before the send time. If you want to ensure that you don't miss deals, you should use Instant instead.
