I use your site a few times a week. Definitely comes in handy when checking inventory, especially at Walmart. Thank you 🙏🏽

Crappola. Honestly, SDM is the one store that should have something like this working.
They have so many different sized stores, its a crap shoot to figure out if what you want is carried in some of them.
Seniors day tomorrow, and my dad wants to get a bunch of things (spend $ for 20,000 points).
He wants to get a large sum of the same item, and the stores by him only have 1-2 in stock.
Looks like I will make some calls...

Those people are nothing but touchy about their data. They may launch something that gives a lot of information, but then they spend all their time making tweaks to limit access.

What a nightmare.
Just spent the last hour calling 10 closest stores to my dad.
Waste of my time, and a big waste of time for the people who eventually helped me.
All stores seem to only carry 2 - 4 of the thing he wants.
None seem to have access to stock info for other stores.
Might try calling the main office, but likely am giving up.
Does anyone know - Does SDM do rain checks?

Hey seafish, when does the site usually scrape Best Buy? They had that Labour Day sale start today but it's only showing 147 price drops so it seems like some stuff is missing?

E: Ex. Web Code 14746041 (256 Samsung micoSDXC) is correctly showing it's on sale but it's missing from the Price Drop section.

@seafish was wondering if you can add Kent’s for the Atlantic people, wondering if the API would be the same?

SDM stores do have a way to lookup up other stores inventory. They have to do it in store on internal network. It a newer feature.

Great feature showing more items being delivered to the stores. At least Walmart (attached)

When you hover over that section, it should tell you.

@seafish I would donate a 3-figure amount if you manage to add a feature to CSV export WalMart's Price Drops data that's displayed (title, price, SKU, UPC, etc.) after filtering out a specific category and time frame, i.e. Health in the Daily Drop tab).

P.S. The categories fitlering doesn't work for me (icons for each category are blank and clicking on them doesn't change the data displayed).
