Deal alerts does not look for Hot Deals retailer tag

Hi,

I was testing the deal alerts function
https://www.redflagdeals.com/alerts/

I noticed that « Title only » it does not take into account the retailer tag in Hot Deals forum.

For example, if I put a deal alert for « Costco » in the title, the deal must have the word « Costco » in the title itself If the op did put Costco in Retailer tag but Did not write Costco again in the title, it does not show up in alert.

Example
https://forums.redflagdeals.com/costco- ... 9-2364967/

I did not receive an email for that deal.

I was expecting the retailer tag to be taken into account for « title » search.

(Costco was for test purposes, my actual deal alert is for primecables or 123ink)

Thank you.

This has been an issue with the deal alerts system for sometime now. I already created a ticket to fix this along with a slew of other improvements to the system. For the time being it's better to add keywords that'll appear in the title, rather than the retailer name.

Unfortunately this still hasn't been fixed yet. It is at the top of our backlog so hopefully we won't have to wait that much longer. As someone with a lot of deal alerts, I'd really like to see this one fixed too.
