Add CapitalOne to the list of cards with good notification.
The Barclaycard Arrival plus card (and I assume other Barclaycard products) are really bad at the email/text alerts. You get the alert only after the transaction are "posted" - usually a day or two after you make the purchase. And the email just gives you the dollar amount, but not the vendor name. It is pretty much useless.
