I haven't been able to get sacalerts for a month now. What can I do?

There was an outage in the notification service which has now been resolved. Emails continue to be the most reliable medium.

It appears the "Future Deal" page is no longer showing future deals.

Thank you for reporting the issue. It seems to be a transient failure but I please let me know if you see any additional failures. All these comments go directly to my email. Thanks.

I tried setting up an account, there was no confirmation and I'm not even sure it registered any of my info. I tried purchasing a couple of items and it always stated my "cart was empty". There is no way of checking my account or anything to verify I can purchase. Can I get some help, please?

I think you are referring to your experience on They offer great support and you can contact them directly via their website.

how can i update my e-mail address while maintaining the same account??

You can reach me at [sacalerts1](at)[] and I can do the update for you. There is no way for you to do it yourself. Sorry.

The deals are not updating.

Thanks for the bug report. I have the Backcountry feed working again.

I got the verification SMS, but when a keyword matches, I get the email alert, but not the SMS alert. Also, now I receive no verification SMS when I attempt to re-verify.

Too many alerts of the same product

Friday, January 13th at 06:42

Never get txt alerts anymore but the this morning flooded with them, 30 or so all qty 0. Verizon network.

The qty count is broken due to an update to Backcounty's data format. Were they messages triggered by your keywords or random? Just reply 'stop' if you want to disable SMS alerts.

I've registered but haven't gotten an email to confirm. I've got a Yahoo email address and it hasn't gone into Spam either.

Can you add Google Voice to the carrier list? I can't verify my SMS.

Monday, May 30th at 13:52

Cant enter verification numbrr

I just tried using Google Chrome and it worked. Can you email me and give more info? What browser? Are you not being texted the code or the form won't accept the code you're entering. Email address is at the top of this page. Thanks.

How do I stop emails from steep and cheap? I don't see an unsubscribe link on the webpages.

If you're talking about SAC Alerts emails, there is an unsubscribe link as described here: There should be an unsubscribe link in any emails from Steep and Cheap as well. If there is not, I believe you need to contact customer support.

Google's Project Fi is my cell provider. I tried selecting both Sprint and T-Mobile but don't get a verification sms. Can you add Fi as a carrier?

I have added Google Fi to the cellphone provider list. Let me know if you have trouble receiving SMS. Cheers!

Current iOS system iPhone. Steep and cheap app not working. Will not allow selecting or purchasing options

SAC Alerts does not develop the Steep and Cheap iPhone app. Please report your issue to directly.

Can't actually buy anything in any Apple apps. There's no way to select an item and/or add it to the cart. Lame.

Please report your issue to directly.

Please report your issue to directly.

I used to have a little pin so that I could get notifications of sales but now I seem to only be able to use it as an extension which pins it to my chrome toolbar. On top of that, I have to keep chrome open in order to get the notification. WTF?! HELP

Friday, December 11th at 04:39

I am a T-Mobile custome. When I try to verify, I don't receive the verification text. Maybe an issue with T-Mobile?

Saturday, October 10th at 13:28

my service provider is not listed in your menu. My service provider is ruralnetwork services

I cannot find any information about this provider. Maybe they're an ATT or Verizon reseller?

The Google Chrome extension (sacalerts) is fouled up, probably because someone redesigned the SteepandCheap website and now there is a disconnect. I can see current deals but can't order them! Right now there is a deal for Jetboil Sol Titanium for $109.99 (3:13 PM CDT) but if you click the link.. just a new home page. Fix it. or lose a long-time customer across all your sites. Thanks, -Glenn

How can I change my email address while keeping the same account? I don't want to have to type in all of the keywords on a new account. Thanks!

Thursday, August 27th at 10:44

please send out a sms or email blast when you're back and running. I'll miss SACalerts till then. Good Luck!

bad week to go on vacation :) seems that all is well now. i don't really know what went wrong, but likely could not access data from for some time. sorry about that.

Sunday, August 16th at 08:32

I didn't receive the verification number on my phone. Can you help, JNC

Thursday, July 30th at 13:37

If I check the sms with verification code, when I switch back to the webpage it reloads the page so the pop-up window to enter it is closed and opening it again will send a new code and invalidate the one I just checked. Is this a cruel joke?

I can't seem to reproduce the issue. At what point does the page reload, when you focus on the confirmation code input? Also, it would help to know what browser you are using.
