Was thinking someone at FatWallet could take a look at the font-size of the Deal Alert emails that get blasted out for topic subscriptions.  The font-size of the most important part of the email - the topic of the thread which triggered the email - is the smallest part of the message.  Why not make this more-legible, and give the important part of the message more prominence in the layout of those messages?

Hi telstar, thanks for the feedback. I *believe* the reason for the smaller font is it allows us to fit more alerts on your screen at once. With a single alert, that doesn't matter as much, but if you have multiple, increasing the font size will really push the other alerts down the page and make them less visible.

Still, I'll pass your feedback on, it's appreciated

True - but then prioritize what's important.  The huge banner at the top with the megaphone and the Arrow pointing at the content consumes a disproportionate amount of vertical space.  And the font sizing is way out of balance throughout the whole thing.  Here's the fonts and the sizing being used:

DealAlert: 52px 'Lora'
Here is your daily list of deal alerts: 18px 'Open Sans'
Here is 1 deal that matches "friends and family":  24px 'Open Sans'
Forum title: 14px 'Open Sans'
Forum poster name: 10px 'Open Sans'
Looking for something else: 16px 'Open Sans'
Button: 16px 'Open Sans'
Stay Connected: 20px 'Open Sans'

So the one unique piece of info people don't know when they receive these types of messages is in the second-smallest text.
