Reddit: New Post or Comment Matching Search

Does anyone know if this is possible with make? I see that it exists in Zapier so curious why it doesn’t exist already in make?

I want the ability to be notified when a new post is created in a subreddit based on a query. For example, “search /r/personalfinance and let me know when a post with “savings account” gets posted”

See attachment for the UI from Zapier:

While Reddit itself doesn’t offer webhooks, it should be possible to use a polling trigger inside a Custom App. The ‘Watch New Comments in a Subreddit’ inside the existing Reddit App is most likely a polling trigger.

Afaik, the existing app will poll for all new comments in a subreddit and does not query on specific keywords or string. You could solve this by a subsequent filter.
