Alerts are broken for me
UPDATE: The developer got back to me, apparently you get front page deal alerts by default. I was looking at the alerts I set up to turn them off but you have to turn them off in your settings.
Not sure what's going on with this. I got the app so I could be alerted to deals for a few specific things. I set up alerts for those items but I get bombarded with alerts all day for random things. It's so intrusive and it seems to be either all alerts or none. I'm choosing none and uninstalling the app.
Otherwise works great as an alternative to the site but what's the point if the alerts don't work, I'll just check the site when I can.

We're sorry to hear that you've been receiving too many notifications.You can reduce or turn off the number of Frontpage Notifications you can receive by going into your settings. You can access it by going to Profile (in the lower right corner) and then clicking the cog icon to the right of the search bar. This will take you to the Settings page, and there is a Notification Settings section you can modify.
Very good app, but....
I'm using slickdeals for years and have saved thousands of dollars.. Daily I'll have a chrome tab opened in my work PC for slickdeals to check every once in a while when I get a break..
The app is really good, but has some issues like.. When trying to upvote or comment on a post, it'll say "sorry you must be logged on to do that".. When the app is killed and launched again, this gets fixed.. Also most of the times, when trying to create a deal alert with a valid keyword (I was trying with 7 or 8 letter keyword) and got the error "user with this ID is not found : 0 "
I know the dev team watch this space for feedback and continously work on fixing them.. Hence leaving this review with lots of hope.. Anyway I'll continue to use the app, and will keep recommending to my friends to try as well.. Keep up the good work and bring us more good slick deals.. 👍🏼

Hi maggivisakh. This issue has been fixed with the latest release. Please update the app to the latest version: iOS 5.5.2 (2608). Thanks!
**6/26/19**Thank you very much for your positive feedback. It makes us happy to know that we’re saving our customers money by helping them to get the best deals through our website and mobile apps!! Really really love hearing that we’ve helped save you thousands of dollars!!
I’m also really sorry to hear that you are experiencing login/logout issues, and have received a "user with this ID is not found : 0 " error when using our Deal Alerts feature. Rest assured, we are aware of these issues and are currently working on a fix which will hopefully make it to release in the near future. Until that fix is released, the best way to combat these issues is to log out of the app and then log back in again. It’s not ideal I know, but it does work as a temporary fix to the problems. Hope this helps a little. For any other questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll happily get back to you.
Fix the Back arrow in the BF section!!!
Update: Devs listened to my bug complaint and fixed the issue i mentioned below. The app is once again usable and reliable, and it’s one of the only BF apps that allow me to set up my list for BF on my iPad, and have that list sync up with the app on my phone without having to re-enter the list. Updated review to 5 stars now! Great job!

Once you get into an add scan in the BF section, the back arrow doesn’t work to get back the main BF page. You need to exit the entire BF section completely and come back in. Also, if you click down to an item from an ad, to add it to your list, you can’t exit back to the ad scan via the back arrow there too. All the back arrows are broken in the BF section. Please fix this ASAP, otherwise, this section of the app is useless.
Response: No. Back arrows and links stop working. The only way to correct it is to kill the app from memory, and restart it. When you do that, it works one time, but when you try a second time, it stops working again.
