Are Deal Alert emails broken?

I've got a whole bunch of Deal Alerts set up, all with email notification. There's a couple of them that seem to reliably produce notification, but for the most part I never get any email notifications for most of them. However, when I click "view current matches," I see a whole bunch of recent stuff. There is no indication on the Deal Alerts configuration page that any of them have expired.

Pretty sure that this isn't a case of incorrectly formatted search terms; I've got all sorts of different search terms from the very simple to the more complex, and virtually NONE of them ever result in any email notifications.

For example, I've got one that just has this search term: "New Yorker" with the quotes included. Never gotten a single alert from that search, though there are plenty of threads.

Anyone else notice this? Kinda seems like Deal Alerts are broken.

Agreed. Haven't seen a deal alert since...last year it looks like? I've only got a couple set up, but seeing tons when I'm testing the search, but none are being sent to email.

Bummer; Deal Alerts are so useful ... when they work. Is there any attention to fixing things like this that aren't working?

I'll second this request. when are deal alerts going to start working reliably again?

Kinda seems like the answer is "never," at least based on the lack of response from SD. Frown
