Score watch alert does not report until after score was refresh

[ Edited ]

For $15 a month subscription, I would like to see this score watch actually report an alert timely.  It's been twice now that I've purchased a score watch score and then see an alert that should have alerted me 1-2 days prior, show up after the day I have purchase the score.  To top it off, it sneakily shows that it was reported a day prior to my purchase.  What is the point of having score watch if it doesn't report anything unless I have already made a purchase?  I am already paying $15 a month for it, I would like to see an actual alert when my credit file changes.
