Is Deal Alerts a hidden feature?

Maybe my brain has melted. I knew this feature existed. I used it in the past but today I looked everywhere on the (desktop) web page and couldn't find it. There is no link to it from the main page. Is there? I googled and found this simple link: https://www.redflagdeals.com/alerts/ This link also shows up in "Other Tools" (found by Google) https://www.redflagdeals.com/tools/ but I don't see a link to Other Tools from the main page. Is it by design? Maybe something is wrong with my browser (Firefox)? I think it would be beneficial to make those links easy to find.

Looks like I am not alone who can't find this feature.

It's actually under "Credit Cards" in the top nav. That menu item use to be called "Tools", but around 1-2 years ago it was changed due to a shift in priorities. And yes, it absolutely doesn't make any sense being in there and I've brought it up many times.

With that said, we're going to be working to make Deal Alerts better and have more visibility across the entire site.

I thought I looked everywhere. It is indeed under "Credit Cards"! I think even if I saw it there my brain refused to notice it because it didn't make sense.
