Instead of my cart, I got a 'Looks like you haven't been complying with Newegg's website use policy. We think we detected automated site visits.'

After a few moments I was able to reload, but it was sold out by then.
Make sure your Distill for Newegg pages is set to a minimum 60 second intervals for refresh (random is best) and don't have more than 4-5 going at once. Newegg implemented a 30 minute ban when it detects you are refreshing their pages too often.

Random? *goes back to Distill to check for that option*

edit: Thanks for the tip!

I'm going to repeat myself again as I was able to score 2 cards using the same method tonight:

Use ApplePay on Newegg if you have an iPhone. It is literally 1 step that takes all of 2 seconds to fully purchase the GPU. No adding to cart, no entering shipping/billing information, you just click "Pay with ApplePay" then double click the side button (or home button on older models) and you're done.

Interesting. I have mine set to 30 seconds when I got the alert for the 3080 FTW, added it to cart and went to checkout, but didn't follow through because I don't really want that SKU nor will it fit in my ITX case anyway. Didn't see that message.

Man. I'd love to have one of the Asus cards if anyone stumbles into one and doesn't want it. No need to let them go to waste! :smuggrin:

Does the Newegg app accept Google/Android Pay? Haven't been on Android since the Pixel 2 so I'm not familiar what the apps look like. Might be an alternative if its as fast as ApplePay.

It looks like it does Paypal but I didn't see anything else as options.

Not familiar with Newegg's Paypal checkout process. Some sites have it so they use the shipping and billing information straight from Paypal which may save some time. While others still make you fill out that information on their site and then go through the Paypal checkout process which may take longer than doing a regular checkout.

On Amazon, make sure you have 1-Click Buy or whatever the feature is configured. You'll just click the 1-Click Buy button as soon as the product pops up on Amazon and then click "confirm". That's how I managed to get my EVGA 3080 XC3 order in on Amazon.

Essentially, you need to find ways to shorten the checkout process as much as possible to stand any chance against the bots that plow through the process with brute force. I haven't been able to score a single card going through the standard checkout process. It just takes too long and there are far too many screens to go through with a high probability of them crashing. Newegg + ApplePay and Amazon 1 Click Buy have been the only successful methods for purchasing the cards through my experience.

Just got the ASUS RTX 3090 TUF OC and the EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 on Newegg. Which one to keep...

EDIT: ApplePay on Newegg is the way to go.

EDIT2: Also just noticed that my ASUS 3090 TUF order has a $70 off promo code on Newegg. Making it pretty enticing...

I’ll take the Tuf if you don’t want it.

Had the TUF 3090 in my cart and my info filled out, was hitting the check-out button...and out of stock. Furthest I've gotten, at least...

That was quick, just got notification that both cards shipped. Newegg is in a hurry to clear inventory space apparently.

Same with mine, I just hope those poor bastards aren't being treated like the Amazon warehouse employees where they're working 80 hours a week and wearing a tracking collar, not to mention carrying a water bottle around to piss in because if they literally don't have time to do that in order to meet their quota.

I wish I was making this up.

Why the heck don’t these shops allow the cart function to take the card out of availability for 1 or 2 minutes???

For low inventory items that would be a concurrency nightmare as items are added and expired from carts. It’s still possible of course but it’s much easier to just update inventory after the purchase is confirmed.

Software development/cart tracking not my field of expertise, but since it’s not a human trying to track this, but rather a computer that is designed to process millions of computations per second - wouldn’t seem to be a thing.

The reason they don't hard lock an item the moment you add it to your cart is that they are designed to be optimized for normal cases and common problems.

Shopping bot armies causing inventory to sell out within seconds of being posted is neither of those.

Potential customers putting things into their carts and never completing the transaction is normal.

When storefronts do implement putting something into a cart removing it from availability the same as if the sale was completed, they open themselves up to Denial of Sale attacks where people try to shut a seller down by putting all their inventory into carts with no intent of ever checking out. In the last few months I've seen threads on twitface encouraging people to do this to try and sabotage funding efforts of politicians they don't like. Normally it doesn't work because unless the seller decided to reinvent the wheel the cart doesn't work the way the would-be saboteurs think it does.

It all comes down to most stores using basic inventory management and checkout programs that are more than capable of doing such but wouldn't in the basic level of service. If you wrote your own adding another layer of code past your intent to protect it from being used as an attack just costs more than they think its worth. AWS store front will allow you to do such a feature for a price wether you are accessing just the api and writing your own code or one of their packages. I remember Shopify(don't know if they are still around) not knowing they were giving people the option to do this for free and then one person decided to charge for this and people revolted.

Processing speed isn’t the issue. It’s still a human writing the software that has to account for all sorts of edge cases and other considerations like the malicious behavior described above.

This. I noticed it also. I haven't gone to check personally but it makes sense. Like today I saw a few 3080 and 3090 show and I might go check after work.

The overland park Microcenter had 3 x 3090's ( all Asus Tuffs ) and a few Gigabyte 3080's this morning. They sold out at opening. There was a small line.

I got the same email. I don't think I've ever actually seen one in-stock on BB's website.

One of my biggest regrets in life is moving from a semi-decent apartment in OC , 3 miles away from the Tustin, CA MC to buying a home in the bay area. Yea I earn much more , have my own place etc. etc. but can that really compare to the thrill of scoring a 3080 on launch week??? ;)

Both 3080 and 3090 available on Nvidia’s site!

EDIT: Appears to have sold out of both in under 2 minutes.
