Site News & Tracker Updates

November 22nd, 2010

It is clear that the holiday season is heating up. This week we have a few updates we would like to share with our users as well as all of those potential users out there. If you are not a registered user, then what are you waiting for, it’s FREE!

Deals & Coupons Section Launched

If you haven’t noticed yet, we have added a new Deals section to NowInStock.net. This is clearly a work-in-progress, and right now the only clear feature is Filter by Store. You may not be all that impressed, but we just wanted to get something up for the holiday season and are continuing to work on it as you read this. If you have a spare minute or two, then check out some of the latest deals and see if there is anything that piques your interest. Purchasing through these links will help support NowInStock.net. Also, if you have any suggestions on the direction this deals section should take, let us know! We love user input; it is what drives this site. Make a suggestion.

Enough, lets get to the in stock trackers, the heart and soul of NowInStock:

New In Stock Trackers

Playstation 3 Accessories

Are you one of the many looking for an extra PS3 Move Controller or two? Well then head over to the PS3 Accessories In Stock Tracker and check to see what inventory is available, if any. If no controllers are in stock, then be sure to sign up for our FREE in stock alerts! With this tracker, we are tracking Move Controller, Move Navigation Controller as well as the Move Starter Bundle.

UK Kinect In Stock Tracker

We have finally added a Kinect tracker just for the UK. If you are a UK-based user and looking for the Kinect, but having trouble locating one, then check out our UK Kinect In Stock Tracker.

Tracker Updates

Microsoft Xbox 360

This past week we updated the Xbox 360 In Stock Tracker with the new Kinect Bundles. We noticed that inventories of specifically the 250GB Kinect Bundle have been very limited. So we added a bunch of store. We are also tracking the 4GB Kinect Bundle as well as the new Holiday Bundle. If you are looking for one of these, make sure to head over to this tracker and see what is available.

Kinect Tracker

Microsoft Kinect is blazing hot right now and we don’t see inventories catching up anytime soon. Make sure to spread the word about NowInStock.net to others you may know that are looking for Kinect. Come this Friday, when shipments should be released to consumers at tons of Black Friday sales, the real question will be how many will remain available.

As far as our in stock tracker for Kinect, we had to remove Kmart this week. Kmart’s inventory is just plain atrocious and constantly is displaying the wrong information to users, which means they are displaying the imporper information to us as well. Enough is enough, so we deactivated Kmart.

Nikon D7000

Nikon D7000 continues to fly off the shelves at all retailers except Best Buy which has had a steady supply of the Lens Kit version. I guess people really want to save that tax or Best Buy’s inventory is endless.

In other news regarding the Nikon D7000 tracker, Ritz has been removed for gross misrepresentation of actual inventories. With their site showing both the Body Only and Lens Kit versions as being in stock this past week, only for users to find out this was totally false after their orders were placed. As a result, we are no longer reporting on the D7000 at Ritz, at least until this product cools off and the tracker turns into a price comparison tool. It is clear that Ritz can’t handle being on an in stock tracker like NowInStock.net.

As far as additions this week in the D7000, we have added 2 new retailers: Vann’s and Buy.com. Both of these are only tracking the Lens Kit version of D7000. Once they have product pages for just the Body, we will add these as well.

Teacup Piggies

This weekend we added several new products under the Teacup Piggies line for Toys R Us. Also, we added Walmart to the tracker. Walmart’s selection is quite limited at this time, but I am sure inventory will start to show up sooner rather than later. If you are looking for Teacup Piggies, then head over to the tracker.

Squinkies

Squinkies appear to be slowing down. We think they might get the boot from the Hot Tracker section this week and moved to the standard trackers section. Tracking will continue on this item… so don’t worry, we are just going to slow it down. If the stock depletes and demand increases, then we will speed it back up.

Custom Item Tracking

Don’t forget, we do have Custom Item tracking for Amazon & B&H Photo right now. The more people use this feature the more stores we will continue to add. So keep on adding items you want.

That is all for this week. Ensure you stop back to the Deals section for Black Friday deals. Also, if we do not post between now and Thanksgiving, as we feverishly work on the Deals section, then here’s a Happy Turkey Day wish for all of our US-based users.
