Have you been looking to snag some PC parts or a new console this year but have found that they are all out of stock? You are not alone in this endeavor, and we are here to help. Today we have some tips and tricks to get you the latest hardware that has been tough to come by in the last few weeks.
If you do not want to mess with Reddit or some scripts on your computer, we like NowInStock.net. This nifty website allows users to set alerts and alarms for nearly any product. In this case, it links to NVIDIA RTX 3090 stock, but you could plug in just about whatever, like a new Xbox Series X. With this site, you can also change what country you get stock notifications from, so your information is localized.
IFTTT is a handy website with many uses, but for shopping, you can create custom triggers to send a text, email, or blink a light in your home if you so choose. IFTTT allows users to pull in Twitter, Reddit, or even RSS feeds and set an alert to trigger if it detects something in those feeds.
If you are a creative nerd, you could tie this app into the /r/buildapcsales subreddit and set alerts automagically.
Getting the newest consoles or PC parts can be difficult, and when things get bought out instantly, “desperate times call for desperate measures,” as they say. If any of these tips work for you or you know of any other useful tools, let us know in the comments below. We are all in this preorder hell together after-all.
