"Notify me" When Products Are In Stock Online

Status: Tell Us More

i have an item in my wish list that is currently backordered 4 to 7 weeks.  it would be great to see a "notify me" when the item is in stock and ready for purchase, maybe even a notification sent your phone from the best buy application saying that, "this item is available for purchase!"


i don't know if anyone else has brought up this idea or not, but would be great to see this feature implemented on the website as well as on the smart phone application(s) across iPhone and Android.


hope other customers agree and make this happen! especially around the holiday season.

This idea has been brought up in the past, but there wasn't enough interest for it to be moved forward. I personally really like the idea, and would love to hear from others on this. Make sure to vote for an idea if you like it.

@smd9; IdeaX is in support of Best Buy U.S. only, and would not be able to address what Best Buy Canada provides its customers.

As you may know, with high demand and low supply, many items will be "sold out" leading to some customers going elsewhere in order to get the item that they wish to get. Adding a notification to people who "save for later" or another option, will allow customers to have the peace of mind that they will know when their item comes in. This may just save a few customers from leaving and going elsewhere for their purchase. It gets rid of the annoying task of checking very often to see if their item has come in. Please take this idea into consideration.

Add me to the "me too" list.  Many other merchants have this capability so Best Buy is certainly losing customers to them by not having it.  If I flag an item here, at Amazon, BuyDig, etc I'll buy it from the first one who has it available at the price I want.  Since those other sites will let me know when it's in stock I'll buy it from one of them and Best Buy loses out.  Considering how common a notify-me feature is (there are even third-party sites that do it, like and, it can't be that hard especially for a large, technology-driven company like Best Buy and it will be beneficial for buyer and merchant.  Please consider adding it ASAP.


Thank you.

The 'notify me' feature is implemented and it sends email to notify the customers of item availability, and this feature is also made available for pre-order item notification. What features do you like to see added / enhanced? do add your comments and feedback.
