Can't search for " Chase " without getting all "purchase" results

Even if I surround it in quotes and spaces. Is there an escape character? It seems like search ignores leading and trailing spaces inside quotes.

Hi,
In your filter options in searching you can set it for "title only"
Also most chase CC deals are so good they hit frontpage so you can narrow things down to just frontpage threads too.

I'm using title only, regardless I still get every result that includes "purchase"

shorted made a guide that helps with search/deal alert creation

per the guide:

"=change
will return search results for only 'change'. It will not return results for similar words like 'changed' or 'changing'. When used in the search, there is currently a bug that disallows viewing of more than one page of results. (Link).

Note: Keywords are case insensitive regardless of the use of quotation marks or equals sign."

^^ in your case, you'd want to do =chase as your search term
