If a transaction hasn't been taken from my account yet, is this included in my alerts?

No, your alerts balance will only include transactions that have already been taken from your account. Any pending transactions will be shown in your available credit.

To manage your alerts, just log into, or register at Barclaycard online servicing, go to 'Your details' in the top menu, and select 'Alerts and notifications'.
