PS4 Alerts using BBY API

Long story short.. I didn’t want to check Best Buy every day to see if PS4 is available.. So I built this Web Application PS4 Alerts! to check every one (1) minute Best Buy Data and if find any PS4 available in store or online will send me an email notification with a direct link to the product.

I also added one feature as subscription so more people can be notified as well.


  • Node.js/Express.js (Backend/Server)
  • (Real time communication with the client)
  • Handlebars.js (as backend template view)
  • NeDB (Database)
  • BBYOpen API

Be advised I built it in two nights..Enjoy!
