Require Captcha Code for high demand items

Status: Tell Us More
by Valued Expert on ‎10-10-2017 01:54 PM

At the cost of annoying some, I'd like to see something implemented into the website where on certain items, say the SNES classic, you have to input a captcha code, or have a code sent to your phone to verify that it is indeed you who want to purchase it. That way you thwart automated bots and give those who really want the item a fair chance to do so. 


Although I already have the SNES Classic, I am open to feedback about this from other fellow shoppers and Best Buy staff.

Interesting suggestion. Would anyone else like to see us implement this type of additional security? Make sure to vote for an idea if you like it.

Take it all the way up for all expensive items as well

Eh. Enough sites spam the crud out of you with that Captcha Code junk. Some of them even require doing multiple levels of it before they'll even let you log in. While I understand it's for alleged security purposes I think it's a waste of time and beyond annoying.

While I personally do support this and would encourage it as well...I am not sure it would do that much good honestly. There are far too many ways for bots to bypass such things.
