Getting e-mail alerts when "Wishlist" sets are finally available to buy
Hey everyone, What's the best way to set an alert a few months in advance, so that it will send out an e-mail as soon as a set we have all been drooling over for months is finally out on the shelf and ready to buy? I realize that the exact release dates are bit different from one country to the next. I live in the USA.
1) Adding an alert to a "saved search" on the "My E-Bay" Page...?
2) Putting something onto a "wishlist" on Amazon or Toys R Us...?
3) Setting a "notify me" alert on my "wanted list" item on BrickLink...?
Or is there some better way? Ideally, I want to be able to set my alerts a few months in advance, not just when they are listed for pre-order. Method number one on E-Bay works fairly well for that, but is there a better way?
And hey, is it possible to add this functionality to BrickSet? Just a checkbox that alerts us when it a set is finally out in the world and available for sale?
