    I found this website this morning that alerts you when a store near you has gotten them in stock. I filled it out this morning and received an email alert at like 3:30 this afternoon that my local new haven store had them. Jumped online and ordered. Within a half hour they were ready for pick up. I know I said I wasn't gonna get them. Sadly the harder they were to find the more I wanted them lol.

    Here is the site. https://airpods.isinstock.com/

    Thanks for the link. I used it and found my local store got some in stock. I ordered them and will be picking them up tomorrow.

    The web site shows when they went into stock and when they were out. It was a 7 minute window. I guess I got lucky when I checked.

    I went to my local Apple Store today. Of course they had none. However we did play with the demo unit. And I have to say they did not sound any better than my Rowkin bit charge. I was kinda hoping for more. They did link up quick that was nice. But I also felt like they would easily fall out of my ears where as my Rowkin would not.

    how does this work? I received an email saying my store had them in stock. I hit the link and it took me to the Apple Store saying they would not get any till March 2nd. Did I miss out? Of course I already ordered but with a delivery of next month. So I thought if I could get them soon than later the better it would be.

    Too slow they sold out by the time you got in there.
    I got the email and went in right away... site said I could pick up today, but left the page because I didn't really want to spend $170 on earbuds. Went back 5 minutes later and it said March 2.

    Thanks that's what I figured. It sold out in 11 minutes at one mall. And 6 minutes at another.

    Signed up a couple days ago. I called yesterday and they said they had a couple in stock but they sold already. Never got an email saying they had any. Not sure how accurate or timely the site is.

    It's been super accurate every time I checked. The most important thing to remember is that time is of the essence.

    Pro Tip: add their email address to your contacts and then go in and mark that contact as VIP. Then set a district ringtone for VIP email notifications.

    ALSO PSA if you use a gmail email address don't forget those emails aren't pushed automatically to the native email app. You either have to a) download the gmail app for instant notification OR setup pop forwarding from your gmail to your iCloud email and then you'll get instant notifications.

    Hopefully that helps you guys a bit.

    That is exactly what I did. I downloaded the gmail app so they would push to me after I missed out. Good tip

    Let me tell you about my experience with this site. I received a email Friday 3rd that ATT had air pods in stock. I immediately ordered and received confirmation. I talked to ATT all week long and they said yes no problem they would ship Saturday and you would get them Tuesday or Wednesday. The story kept changing when I never received a second email. Then I was told they would mail out on Monday and should get them the same Tues. of Wend. I received a email Monday saying my order was approved but no tracking number and no expected time of arrival. I have talked to ATT all night last night. and What has happen even thought they would not admit it. They fulfilled their customers orders first. Someone I know order two days after me and theirs were mailed out yesterday with a delivery of today. Some of you may think there is nothing wrong with this, however I do. I ordered when I know they had them and they fulfilled their wireless customers first. I used to be with them 10-15 years but switched for economic reasons and coverage. Now who knows when my order will be sent shame on ATT.

    I also ordered from AT&T with a little different result. I placed the order on Sunday and my credit card was charged. On Monday I got an e-mail from AT&T stating that my order was cancelled. They said they "could not verify my identification".

    This was a bogus excuse to cancel my order because they did not have the Airpods in stock and probably never did. I would be surprised if your order gets filled radklin until Apple meets their own internal demand and begins to supply outside vendors in March.

    They told me that they do not have them in stock. So basically they lied. Side note the lady that put her order in Sunday received her orders today. So they fulfilled the AT&T wireless customers orders first. To heck with you if you were not a AT&T wireless customer. I am so mad at AT&T

    It is in the best interest of both the company and its customers by opting to take care of its customers *first*, and I'm one of the people who does not have a problem with it. It's no different than when companies have member-only sales and discounts.

    I understand but I still disagree. But to lie to me about it is bad business. I had at&t for many years, but got tired of the way they treated me and moved to Verizon. I should have ordered them through someone who has them and I would be holding these elusive products right now

    Additionally, lets be honest....AT&T makes more money off their wireless customers than they do off a random customer purchasing an accessory. It wouldn't surprise me if they prioritize the customers who purchase services from them over those who don't. Speaking as someone who used to work in wireless, the customers who brought in repeat business and consistently worked with me got "special treatment". It's a way of saying "Thank you for your service and loyalty".

    Side-note: This is the website that I used to get my AirPods. Definitely recommend!

    Don't get me wrong, I, too, would be pissed if they had lied to me. I was merely focusing on their prerogative to cater to their customers first.

    Like I said many of you would not agree with me. And that's ok. But it is still bad Business. My Mother even owns stock in AT&T. Not enough to make a difference unfortunately. I was as hooping never have to deal with them when I got rid of them years ago. But it's for the airpods. So I tried.
