What an amazing tool, thank you! Used it today, scored myself a sweet deal thanks to it.

Crossing my fingers you figure out Home Depot at some point. Would really come in handy. Not complaining though, you've done a tremendous job. Hats off to you, sir!

Awesome tool I've been using it quite a bit. Do you have any idea if there's plans to add EBGames in the future?

Added 'Walmart.ca Daily Price Drops' which shows products that were discounted today and available to buy from walmart.ca. Clicking on the item will also show availability and price in stores near the location. I'm only tracking items that were ever searched through my tool. Some items may even not show on walmart.ca that they were priced higher before, but I track all the prices and know better ;) I also don't compare with 'regular' price, but with the price that the item was sold yesterday.

The tool used to show quantity, did you filter that out and return "Available" or did Walmart's backend changed?

Great tool btw!

It showed(and still shows) quantity for Canadian Tire and for Walmart online stock info. Stores never showed quantity information (just whether stock is limited which probably means <3 items)

I'm assuming when the wording"Available" is in yellow, that would signify it's limited, right?

Great tool for Black Friday/Cyber Monday and this coming Boxing Day. Hopefully this tool will be refurbished and run even better by the time Black Friday rolls around

Nice app! I like how it is so clean and simple. Is there anyway to add ToysRUs to the list?

Also, is it possible to have a specific list of UPC/SKU that we are watching and have the app check the price of all retailers and results return in a table form?

I think walmart is hiding some BF items, stores that shows it has inventory (green available) on the checker, when you go there, there's nothing.

As I said multiple times, stock information is not real-time and behind day or 2. If you see Available it means that it was available couple of days ago and for hot items probably OOS already. I know it's not helpful, but nothing I can do :(. At least price information is appearing to be real-time. (I never found it being wrong)

Just remembered seeing your signuture and using your inventory checker back when you posted the fall fertilizer deal. I tried it and I liked your program.

Was on the phone a minute ago calling Walmart to find a tv for me when I just remembered your website checker tool and had to google you up. Just subcribed to your thread and thanked.

This is a GREAT tool. Thank you for creating it. It is very handy.

Would that be the same for prices? If an item is 50% on BF, on monday it could be at normal price even when your tool says it's still 50%?

Just waned to report that the inventory checker will not show the full list of stores in Firefox Quantum v63.0.3 32bit version on Windows 7. I can't close the price drop deals window but it will allow me to close the store address inventory window (which is not what I want).

It does however show up well in Chrome on the LG G4

No I can not. My mouse has a wheel and I tried scrolling and it only moves the whole page up or down and still not showing the rest of the stores. It's like half the page is cut off. I also pressed the mouse wheel down and see if I can get some left to right movement but till the same result.
