Transaction alerts

Transaction Alerts will let you know when a certain transaction goes through your account. (See also ‘Creating an Alert from a transaction search’) There are many different uses for this type of alert. You could set it to go off whenever you shop at Wal-Mart by entering ‘Wal-Mart’ in the Criteria field (Step 3 (Rules) in ‘Creating an Alert’). If you wanted it to only alert you when you spend over $50 at Walmart, you could type ‘Wal-Mart over $50.’ You can do this to be alerted by any transaction of any amount. When you’ve entered your criteria you can use the ‘test this criteria’ link to see what kind of transactions will cause your alert to go off.
