Deal alert emails not sending instantly?

70 14 October 11, 2017 at 09:21 AM
I have a deal alert set up for "nike metcon":


However, the supposed "instant" alert links to a thread that was posted yesterday:


By the time I got to the thread, the deal was dead.

Why did I not receive the alert instantly?

Did you set it to send instantly at zero TUs?

Hi ckeitk9910. There was an issue identified recently that affected some users but that was resolved a few days ago. Have there been any noticeable missing email notifications during the time since then? If so, make sure to double check your spam folder. If the issue remains, can you please provide us with some additional information so that we can look into this further? When did you notice this start happening? Are you still receiving other emails from Slickdeals (newsletters, quote/pm notifications if enabled, etc)? If you have your Deal Alerts set to notify you by other means as well as by email, are you still receiving the notifications by those other means (forum popup notification, pm, etc)?

Hello,

I'm having the same issue as well. I get some deal alerts (older ones I set up) emailed to me but not newer ones. I have SNES and ps4 DualShock controller to instant email me, but both came up on FP and I did not receive emails in my gmail or spam. Any idea what's happening?
