This item is not in your cart yet.

Due to high demand, we're having everyone go through one more step before it can be added.

Please try again.

I dont get it. I had multiple windows open and hit add to cart on lots of different cards yet none would let me add to cart.

It just sits at "waiting" and then its OOS. And I hit it right when it turned yellow...

I mean even if you click it right when it turns yellow, there's probably so many people hammering it at the same time that it's totally random if you'll get in or not.

They should just do raffles at this point.

I think thats pretty obvious that is what is happening. There are so many bots and sites that are following those cards, I did notice a lot of alerts went off heh.

Right? I had one in my cart about a month ago. Stared at it for like 20 seconds. I just didn't have it in me to hit add to cart. I was so thankful when I hit refresh, they were sold out. XD

I need a $2,000 GPU...

I don't need a $2,000 GPU...

I think you guys are both doing it wrong. It should be...

I think I was able to snag a 3080, we'll see if it ships. I did see lots of notifications this morning so they must have received a good amount.

Ya be careful, bestbuy does have bot protection(to some degree). It will temp ip ban you if you hammer it too hard.

The way it works on BB is, if you were able to checkout completely, you got it. If it wasnt in stock at end of checkout, it wouldnt have let you check out.

Had tons of windows open, every time the discord channel popped another one I got in line for that card. Several of them turned yellow, a few added to my cart, one actually sent me a verification code. Was unable to successfully check out however. My 5950x might just run out of warranty before I get a gpu!

They seemed to spread them out for almost an hour. Kept clicking and missing. I started yelling and grumbling from my office and my wife asks from the couch 'what are you trying to get?' I said anything! So she looks on her phone and scores a Founders Edition 3070 first try. Good wifey, better than a bot.

don't assume she got it for you. She knows a hot market when she sees one.

Unlikely. The ones that were released a little later were probably from customer cancelled orders or from orders cancelled by Best Buy for whatever reason. Guessing there were only a few and all have been claimed by now.

They did spread out the drops at least 45minutes to maybe an hour. My order went through just before 10am MST.
