alarm
 
Would it be possible to set an alarm tone to go off when one came up for sale on your trackers?, Really like the way it performs, also what time zone is your time setup for? thanx, keep up the great site :)

xpBargains 11-21-2006 12:29 AM

time zone added.

alarm tone is tricky, and not necessary. you can use an RSS reader to play a sound as soon as it detects a new item via our rss feed.

Edit: now we include instructions on how to set up alarm on your PC. see first post.

RSS Feeds?
 
Hi, I am having trouble with the RSS Feeds.

I used FeedReader, and it puledl no data at all from the PS3 and Wii feeds.

I then tried Google Reader, and it did pull some info from both the PS3 and Wii feeds, but not nearly as much info as is on, for example, the "PlayStation 3 Tracker Log" at the bottom of the actual tracker pages.

For example, the RSS feed for the PS3 on Google Reader shows the latest postings as a Nov 22 for WalMart, a Nov 20 for GameStop, and Nov 19 for Circuit City.

If one looks at the "PlayStation 3 Tracker Log", there are 14 different entries dated for Nov 22 and 23 alone. :eek:

Am I doing something wrong :confused: , or is all of the info that shows up on the actual tracking pages not being sent to the RSS?

Thanks!

xpBargains 11-23-2006 08:40 AM

judyneric, rss feed only has items which are currently in stock.

google reader keeps a cache of our rss feed, and they don't refresh very often. that's why it's kind of like our tracker log.

i'd just use the rss reader client, and make it check out rss feed every 10 minutes, and play an alert sound whenever something is found.

xpBargains 11-23-2006 07:27 PM

nightsong, thank you for your valuable feedback. we just added the non-bundled wii from walmart to our wii tracker.

please let us know if there is anything else we should add.

xpBargains 11-27-2006 10:10 PM

kentuckyfried, sorry to hear that. there might be software or web services that can help you. i googled and found this:

http://www.emailtophone.com, but I have no experience with the software.

livejamie 11-28-2006 11:41 PM

how come the journeyed title keeps saying "Nintendo Wii Bundle w/ 2 Games" ?

when i go to the site i don't see any mention of any games that come with it, let alone any wii games on the site itself?

i'm confused.

JonBiz32 11-29-2006 03:47 AM

how often is this tracker updated?? i mean timing is Crucial and if u dont have the info right away then u r probably out of luck

flying_dutch 11-29-2006 05:01 AM

JourneyEd - WII is NOT in stock
 
I just got off the phone with them after placing an order late last night....customer service told me they will have them "the end of December".

Yavin 11-29-2006 05:07 AM

Journeyed.com has no Wii Consoles
 
Same results for me. They will not have them until late December. I asked them where that was defined on the site and they said it wasn't but was being added. Canceled my order...grrrrrr.

I just verified this, and I cancelled my order with them... :(

orpyak 11-29-2006 06:44 AM

journeyed.com WILL NOT have Wii consoles B4 XMAS
 
I just called journeyed.com customer service and cancelled my order. :mad:

They stated that they would not be getting Wii consoles in until sometime after Christmas.
:eek:

Call journeyed.com customer service at (800) 874-9001 to confirm what I'm stating and to cancel your order, if after Christmas is too late for you.

xpBargains 11-29-2006 07:45 AM

updated tracker. sorry for the inconvenience of journeyed.

milrob 11-29-2006 07:50 AM

JourneyEd
 
Your tracker still lists the wii online as in stock for JourneyEd. There should be a note in the history that they did not have them in stock.

Meehlimo 11-30-2006 03:35 AM

post. removed. looks like a scam website in indonesia.

xpBargains 11-30-2006 09:22 AM

jrudy01 11-30-2006 09:31 AM

xpBargains 11-30-2006 02:23 PM

jrudy01, thanks a lot for the information. could you please attach the BN html source code while it is in stock? we can add BN to our tracker. thanks!

xpBargains 11-30-2006 02:49 PM

jrudy01 11-30-2006 04:21 PM

Yes you need to download a rss reader. Just do a google search to find one. Once you find one you will be able to copy the rss feed url into the reader and thats pretty much it. hope that helps

Not Sure How To Use
 
I've never used a tracker before but there is one in my toolbar bookmarks section for the ps3. How do I use it?

Justin1801 12-03-2006 11:35 AM

RSS Reader
 
I downloaded an RSS reader and when it asks me to input the URL for the site I don't know what to input. On the RSS feed there are a bunch of URLs and I've tried a bunch of things but nothing ever works. Show me exactly what to input into the URL box.

for Wii use this URL: http://www.xpbargains.com/wii_rss.php

xpBargains 12-04-2006 04:47 PM

thanks again jrudy01. added to our wii tracker. now it is showing in stock.

jrudy01 12-04-2006 04:59 PM

sweet glad to help, just wish everyone would stop selling bundles.

themonk 12-04-2006 05:47 PM

great idea, I will definitely try that. I would be totally happy with an exchange.

wam 12-06-2006 03:57 AM

Actually, that Walmart PS3 bundle is for the 20GB version. Shipping is $60.

jrudy01 12-06-2006 05:03 AM

Zoiks...Sorry about that. The last one they did was 60. So I only assumed it was 60 again. I wasn't going to pay that much for all those games.

themonk 12-06-2006 03:58 PM

error on the ps3 tracker page
 
The tracker for Circuit City says (20gb) but that link is actually for the 60gb. I bought one this morning. Got lucky and checked just before work at 0630 mountain time right when they came up. They sold out quick. Thanks again for your awesome tracker.

xpBargains 12-06-2006 04:33 PM

themonk, thanks for the feedback. corrected the CC title to reflect 60GB. I am glad that our tracker helped.
