Nowinstock.net Compliment - Handy site if you are looking for hard to find items
I just wanted to share a site I stumbled upon when searching for hard to find toys and gifts for my nieces and nephews this past Christmas.
Nowinstock.net is a website that pings the major online retailers for popular items. I was in search for a particular toy for my niece that everyone seemed to be sold out of, so I signed up for their free email and text alerts (you can chose just text or emails if you want, but I did both).
Sure enough, within a day I got an email saying Amazon had the product in stock, and I was able to order it. Within 10 minutes they were out of again, so if I had not acted then I would have missed getting the toy and possibly lost status as best uncle.
You can take your name off the emails and text whenever you want, but out of curiosity I chose to keep receiving them for a little longer because I found it cool to watch how quickly some of these things would sell out of stock. I also like how they show the time and date that each company last had the product in stock.
