Sears Wii Alerts Going Forward

November 28th, 2007

All, I just want to let you know that starting later today as soon as Sears fixes their site once again, I will be reactivating Sears once again. However, this time around I am going to cut back on the alert times for just Sears. I typically send out alerts every 4 hours until stock is diminished. Given that it usually takes Sears longer than that to fix their site, I am going to push their specific alerts back to approximately 12 hours. Hopefully they will be able to fix their site within this larger time frame. If it so happens that Sears can’t deal with that time frame, I may push it even further. Time will tell.

Also, it appears that stock is being shown as available every morning. As I stated in my comments on an earlier post, I feel this is related to canceled orders being reintroduced back into the system. I can not control this. It does appear that there are units available in the morning, just a VERY, VERY limited number. I am talking in the single digits. As result of this occurrence, expect that you will receive alerts every day for Sears. And, unless you are up ultra early EST or late PST and act Flash Gordon quick, you will more than likely not be able to get a Wii before the site starts displaying incorrect inventory information.

I am tired of dealing with Sears and do not want to remove it completely from the tracker. I think this new system will work out in the end.

Also, I have removed Sears from the Twitter Beta test as a result. We do not need mobile alerts early in the morning for this limited number of units. I will turn them back on if I feel Sears has corrected the situation to a certain degree.
