Thumbs down Deals section seems irrelevant now / Temporarily out of stock

Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but just about every title i click on in the 'Deals' area of the site is listed on the Amazon website as 'Temporarily unavailable' or 'Not available'.
I contacted Amazon about this just now and they told me they have drastically reduced there stocking as there is no demand for titles anymore as everyone has switched to streaming.
I hope this isn't true, but there seems little point showing deals with prices when you can't actually buy the product detailed.
Are Blu-Ray.com able to link to a reputable retailer website that actually stocks the titles listed?

I assume the person you talked to at Amazon was a CSR who answered their help line?

Edit: after some investigation the issue is that almost all pre-orders are "Temporarily ouf of stock" if you try to pre-order on Amazon.com from outside US. Same issue with Amazon France, Germany etc (Canada does not seem to have this problem though). The IP must be within the country. This change on Amazon seems to have happened around when Covid started. The good news is that you seem to be able to pre-order across different countries/Amazon locales when the release is closer to street date, like 2 weeks in advance or less.

Great news though.
If you're not from the country of the Amazon pre-order, you'll probably are dealing with this:

This is what someone from the US sees on Amazon:

Pre-order now.
Qty: [ ]


If you see in our br.com listing the price in red
it normally means it's active:

Quote:
Price
Amazon: $34.99
New from: $34.99
Available for pre-order, FREE shipping




And also if it shows you can order a deal even if it's out of stock, when available it'll be shipped at the price has been my experience.

Thanks guys. You're right. I didn't even realise the title hadn't been released yet as it used to show on the right hand pane and now just says the unavailable note.
Some titles aren't released in the UK like Monster Hunter and Love & Monsters, so was going to get them from USA store as used to do this a lot before covid, but has been tricky since last year.

Yep!

I had an order from Amazon which said it wouldn't be delivered until May 11, and just shipped today.

I hope to see it arrive sooner than May.

Me too. No deals displayed. We’re talking End of Days. Too late to repent.

*Just tried it again, using the U.K. as my preference, and Deals worked. U.S. is still a no-go. We’re doomed, I tell ya!

Noticed, it's a caching problem. If you select anything from the filter it will work. We are working on a fix but can take a while

Edit: as a side-effect deals aren't updating at the moment, so you don't really need to check
I will update when it's fixed

Edit: caching issue solved, but deals still aren't updating at the moment. Working on it.

Did that also keep daily emails from going out? I didn't get my usual set last night and I know some posts were made in those threads

Noticing a lot of deals are now 8 hours old or older. Is the deal tracker currently down, or (insert dramatic soap-opera music here) is amazon no longer posting new blu-ray deals....

Same issue here. Last new deal listed now says 13 hours ago.
