Walmart Canada Tracking Halted

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

UPDATE 11/30/2016:  Walmart Canada tracking has resumed.

As of March 11th, 2016, all Walmart.ca (Canada) tracking will cease. This is the result of Walmart.ca removing their affiliate program which we rely on to support the site and keep it free for you the subscribers. If anything changes, we will update this post.

Google Fi Text Alerting Added

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

We have added Google Fi to our list of mobile carriers for text/SMS alerting. We are using the gateway address “@msg.fi.google.com” as reported in this announcement from Google.

Given that Google Fi relies on both the Sprint and T-Mobile networks, our hopes are not that great that this system will be reliable given our past experiences with both these carriers. Regardless, please let us know if you receive your alerts or not in the discussion below or via our contact form.

Yahoo Mail Delivery Issues

Friday, November 15th, 2013

If you are looking to sign up with NowInStock.net for email alerts, or already signed up with a NowInStock.net account, you should be aware that we are encountering alert delivery issues with Yahoo! Mail. There is nothing we can do on our end. This is an issue that crops up every year once we start delivering mass amounts of in stock and/or pre-order email alerts. All other email providers are delivering our mail in a timely fashion. As a result of this delay, it is highly recommended that you use a different email provider (Gmail, Hotmail, etc) if you are planning on using “email” alerts. TXT alert delivery is not affected by this.

How to Fix the Issue:

  • If you are signing up for the first time, just select a different email provider account (such as Gmail) when signing up.
  • If you are already a NowInStock.net account holder, it is high suggested that you change your account username/email address within your account. Not only will this fix any potential delivery issues this year, but also into the future. This can be accomplished by logging in and using  the form on the left hand side of the My Account page.

I know this might not be the most optimal solution, but we have contacted Yahoo! Mail and the issue goes unresolved. When alerts are sent, our mail queue backs up with delayed Yahoo mail. Basically they are throttling delivery to the point where some email deliveries will be worthless as stock will be gone by the time the email reaches your inbox.

Thanks!

Extra Xbox One for Sale

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

UPDATE: People are getting scammed. In the interest of protecting buyers, we now have new rules. Read them below.

This place was created for all users looking to sell an extra Xbox One or Xbox One bundle they may have acquired in their quest to find a Xbox One pre-order.  This page and its comments section is meant to be a place for people to formulate a friendly, fair transaction. All user-posted “in stock” or “pre-order” notices are to be posted in the Xbox One Tracker comments section only, not the comments below. This page is solely for the sales of extra, user-owned Xbox One units only!

It is now required that all transactions take place on eBay. This will protect both parties involved.

Buyers: DO NOT buy through any means other than eBay, or you risk getting your money stolen.

It has happened before and can happen again unless you follow this rule! eBay has buyer protectionIf you get ripped of buying through some other means… well then don’t complain here. We warned you.
