    I've wrote a small script that checks Argos and Game for stock availability, if anyone would like to be added to the mailing list for when they become available let me know, you'll be emailed within 5 minutes of them going up on the site (and every 5 minutes thereafter until they go out of stock).

    Let me know which of the following you wish to be informed about:

    Argos Core's
    Argos Premium's
    Game Bundles

    Created a little PNG that shows whether stuff's in stock or not:

    Or any other suggestions for sites to track stock on.

    Wouldn't every 5 minutes be rather bad if they don't go out of stock for 3 days? That's 864 e-mails !

    It's a good idea though, but by the time I go looking to buy one, they'll be in stock :p

    Kind of a 50/50 link that as that just lists a few competitors, but it's a Dons decision.

    Supply me with the url of the website you want tracking then please.

    Only updates once an hour, by which time the stock may of gone, mine checks every 5 min.

    Just made this handy little thing, checks stock live so if it says in stock, its in stock this second.

    Please don't use it elsewhere.

    Edit: see top of this thread
