- got it - it is to the right - not a menu item but below it to the righ, top, a yellow box that says SUBSCRIBE....

I have an alert for paper towels so I know it works but I can't find it on the home page either. Odd.

I sent a msg to the mods asking where the alert went.

Hi folks - thanks for the feedback - type whatever you are looking for into the search bar and hit enter. On the result page there should be window about 4 x 4 cm it says SUBSCRIBE - that's it. Not sure why the dealspl.us folks decided to rename and everything around, the old version was much better.....oh well...

Thank you tooneutral - that does work. Nothing intuitive about it and not sure how a new person would figure it out without tripping over it.

Has this since disappeared? I cannot find any "Subscribe" button on my search results page :(

Looks like the alert management is completely gone even though the old alerts work - It used to be here:
http://dealspl.us/user/username/stores

This was the single most useful feature of the site - deals catered to your needs. Why remove something that has been working so well - the alerts making you come back to the site periodically - at least once every day. Hope they bring back the keyword alerts.

would really like to change some of my alerts... they did say earlier that they were going to work on it. would really love it if you could have our alerts appear (on a page or tab) on the site, so we didn't have to get them in our email.

@dddsss There is a small red circle with a white exclamation point that appears next to your username when you have a notification. Are you talking about seeing the actual full notification text on the site as you're browsing?

@tr1plication I think @dddsss means the alerts on a specific item on sale.

For example, I have in today's email "Deal Alert for chromecast" with this link: http://dealspl.us/Electronics_deals/p_tv-supercombo-package-changhong-40-1080p-led-hdtv?r=ed

YET...at the end of that email I have the option of:
Click this link to Unsubscribe.
Click this link to Manage your alerts.

When I click on option 2 I get this page: http://dealspl.us/user/glwrks/stores

I'd really like to add "items" and "Manage" my alerts for what I'm shopping for currently, especially as my Christmas shopping list is taking shape;)

@glwrks, that is exactly what I meant. I didn't even think to look for those links in the email, but guess they don't work anyway.

@tr1plication I have made that suggestion a few times. I think it would be so great. Like a feed on-site of all the alerts we have set. pop up alerts would be great too, so you can get on the deal ASAP. But at the least I would love a page that shows the deals and coupons that we're most interested in. That would be the page I would look at first rather than the front page, most of the time.

what a great service that would be to find deals on the stuff you really want or need.

So DealsPlus has destroyed the most useful features just to implement a new look? I don't see the keyword alerts anywhere.
