    Not receiving alerts

    I set an alert on an 8D cabin on the 15 December Carnival Magic cruise, but while there was a $150 reduction in the fare, I did not receive an alert.  Had I not visited the site, I might have missed the sale, so why did I pay for the monitoring I never received an alert for?

    It's normal you didn't get an alert: you asked not to be notified unless the prices goes lower that $689.

    I reduced that from $839 after receiving the price match from Carnival.  The issue may have been that DROP does not mean a drop in currently available prices being tracked, so when the "Fall And Winter Sale - Past Guests" rate became available again, I was not notified that the currently available price had dropped.  With my current settings, will I be notified every time a rate returns, even if it is above my stated price?

    EDIT: Just found the answer to my last question - I will be notified when a rate becomes available, even if it is not under my threshold, since the condition "and is lower than price" does not apply to BACK.  Over to the requests forum.
