Popular items flying off the 'shelf' ?

Got an email alert letting me know that O2 Adam (carmel) was back in stock. I saw the email about an hour after it had been sent to. I clicked the link the moment I saw it and it said it was out of stock!

Either the email was a mistake, or I wasn't the only one keeping an eye on it.

As soon as I got an email that the We-Vibe Tango and Salsa were back in stock, I was home and jumped on and placed an order. The Salsa remained in stock several hours AFTER I placed my order.

I just got an email saying the Tango was being sent but not the Salsa because it's now on "back order", which I'm a little upset about because I had my order in wayyyy before it sold out AGAIN. I don't know if maybe because I used up the rest of my gift cards that my order was on the end of the priority list over people that paid with money? Don't know if that's true or not but I just don't understand how I ordered way before it went out of stock, RIGHT when I got notification and then it's on back order. Two colors were available. But those went out early into the next morning.

It just seems like everything is going the moment it's back =/

That happened with the Green Mustang by Vixen. Luckily I managed to snag one up, but hours after I placed my order it was gone. It's hard to get the popular items now! You really have to set alerts or you'll miss them completely. Even when you do set alerts, somehow we can still miss them.

That happened to me with Spur before I bought it. It was in stock only a week later, and I snatched it up!

I normally set the back in stock alerts for items that we just gotta have. Sometimes the alerts are very helpful. Unfortunately, I've also had items sell out the same day before I could log in and order them. The Adam is quite popular and it is currently on the 35% off sale. So yes, I can understand why it would sell out quickly. It doesn't make it any easier having to wait even longer for it though.

It can happen from time to time, you tend to have more luck with specialty items that come back

they run out of stock on the same items all the time. You just have to be fast if it is something you really want.

They don't send the notice out the minute an item comes back in stock — or at least I don't THINK they do. I have a wishlist of things I want which are out of stock. I check it several times a day and pounce when something's back.
