Alerts turned off for Walmart

Feb 10 2017, 3:22 PM PST

The Plus has now been in stock on-and-off at Walmart for about 24 hours. In the interest of reducing the volume of emails we sent out, we are turning off alerts for Walmart, as we imagine most of our users that were waiting for Walmart availability have already made their purchases at this point.

As a reminder, alerts from Best Buy are turned off as well, due to inconsistent availability data coming from them. Alerts for Amazon, GameStop and Pokémon Center are still active.

If you're no longer looking for a Plus, we encourage you to use the unsubscribe link that we include at the bottom of each email we send. It just takes a few seconds to unsubscribe, and it helps us make sure we aren't blasting out emails to people who don't want them. Thanks!

Best Buy alerts disabled until further notice

Feb 2 2017, 3:32 PM PST

Over the past weeks we've had a few instances of alerts being triggered by bad data from Best Buy. For example, at time of writing their system is consistently reporting that the Plus is in stock and "usually ships in 1 business day", despite their public site showing it as "Sold out". To avoid nuisance alerts, we are suspending alerts for Best Buy for the time being. Sorry for any inconvenience.

New subscription preferences

Oct 29 2016, 8:40 PM PDT

In response to user feedback, we have updated the way alert subscriptions work. You can now choose whether to receive alerts only when the Plus is in-stock, or any time it's orderable (including preorder/backorder). As an existing subscriber, you can change your preference by simply repeating the subscription process.
