    Just got the notification on my phone of it being back in stock, and actually got to add it to my cart! Unfortunately, they sold out before I could check out.

    I wonder if there’s a bot placing orders...

    It's more likely that Target's online ordering is crap. They probably keep putting just a few up for sale when they should just wait until a larger quantity is available.

    Pay close attention to the notification. It may be telling you they’re in stock at your preferred Target store, rather than online. Happened to me yesterday. I was able to go to my local store & grab one.

    Still easier than ordering a Bandai DX Chogokin VF-1S Valkyrie.

    I got a notification at 3:43am on the target app. I was able to order one successfully. My email notification was sent too late, I didn't get it until 3:55am. It seems the app is the way to go for notifications.

    i noticed the same past couple days. I would get the alert, it would show a nearby store "in stock", meanwhile nothing was available online. so I put 2 and 2 together, figured out the alerts were being sent as the nearby stores were getting them. I think you're absolutely right about that..

    my alert today went the same way. was able to get them at the store.

    I was just thinking that and coming to post. Ive got 3 alerts within past 12 hours but nothing online to ship. However i checked locally available and it went from closest store 300 miles away to 1 128, 74, and 140 miles away.

    I am certain people, not all likely here or would fess up, are snatching the orders. Some used bots to scan, some beat you with the emails. I received emails at 5:40am, 6:43am, 11:42am cst. Compare your time stamps to mine. The stock was sold out every time, nothing at the stores either.
    Do we all have the same time stamp or within 10 minutes? that may be the answer.

    The last exclusives were the same pattern (mirror situation), hippos will get their fill and we all have a chance, don't give up.

    Well, in theory I finally got the two pack. The app beeped at me at least four time starting around 330 or 4 am. Hopefully the rest of the process goes through smoothly.

    Just got my order in! Looks like the email even came the same time that the app notified me, which was 7:15 am. Good luck all!

    Managed an order at 5:39. Truly unless you're looking at your email inbox as it comes in, the app is the way to go. Got the notification, hit order and Apple Pay handled the money end. Order literally took less than five seconds to submit.

    This is probably a dumb question, but where on the app can you turn on notifications? I sign up through the website, but those alerts come too late.
