Cheers Erick and Ben!

  • ScoobySnack

    Back in stock at many B&M BBY but the Netflix promo is now over!

  • Bill Smith

    I just ordered one and it was in stock just now. So looks like Best Buy has some in house. Looking to get delivery on 9/3-9/4.

  • Drambuie

    My local BB had them in this morning. The only reason I really want one is because of the three free months of Netflix, versus waiting until the ship on Sep 3 from Google.

    I waited all day at work and drove by on the way home and picked up one up… They had about 7 left…

  • ETPhoneHomeT

    Nope, BB sold out again. About 15 minutes after receiving my order confirmation email I received a 2nd one that said my order had been cancelled. Went back to the BB website and it said Sold Out Online again.

  • ETPhoneHomeT

    Yep, BB has them again. I just ordered Chromecast #2 and it says that it should be delivered between 9/3 and 9/6. Free delivery and still says you get the 3 months free Netflix. Looks like maybe supply is catching up to demand.

  • Arthur

    Its back again, finally able to get my order in.

  • Anthony

    I feel that Google TV it so much better then this…. not need to switch sources, just works a little bit more seamless.

  • Hoffman

    Picked up mine a few weeks ago at a Best Buy several miles away. It has been fantastic.

  • Despite707

    Just got mine today from amazon. I ordered on July 24.

  • Ry Sav

    just happend to stop by bestbuy today and they had 1 left in stock…. booyahh

  • Dennis Da Menace

    Got mine 2 weeks ago from local best buy. Been watching netflix nonstop ever since. #chromecast+ #freenetflix = #death2productivity4me hahaha

  • Justin Fosco

    Anyone else having trouble cancelling there order on google play? My best buy has a bunch in stock but Google Play comes up with an error saying sorry we couldnt cancel

  • Terrance Steiner

    I ordered my Chromecast from Best Buy last week (still have not gotten it but I have a tracking number). At the time they still had Netflix 3-mouth promotions to give away (several weeks after Google pulled the plug on them). My guess is that they ran out of stock before they had a chance to go through all of there Netflix promos. I have already gotten the promo code and it worked.

  • JaronDW

    Our local best buy has been getting a couple dozen in every week for the last several weeks. I went to the store last week and picked one up. Got the netflix deal, saved on shipping and got it way before Google was going to ship mine I ordered from them!

  • melhiore

    And how the hell Google is pretending to be professional company?? It is another joke! exactly the same as with every G product…

  • Ben Myton

    Be sure to “Check Store Pick Up”. My local shops get them in Monday and Thursday (but never on the same day as each other). I just watched until they showed up and then drove in.

    Also be sure to buy each one on a separate transaction so you’ll get your 3-months free.

  • BeejRich

    One store in my area got them on a truck one day….they sold out that same day.

    • Hoffman

      They have sold out in a couple of hours in my earlier searches. Finally I got lucky.

  • fauxshizzl

    Many Best Buy stores have them in stock at the store too. If you missed out click on the “check stores” link and see if the store nearest you has them. They also come with the 3 months Netflix.

  • joejoe5709

    Jeeeebus. Once again too slow. Whatever. I’m honestly done with this thing. I’ll wait for Black Friday or something. This is ridiculous.

  • MUTINOUS

    YOU BUNCH OF CHROME MONKEYS!! Don’t you have anything better to do than watch the internet waiting for this Chromecast to come back online. how am I going to get this deal, I looked away for 20 minutes and GONE! LOL sad and slow I am….

  • Bionicman

    i got one a few minutes after they went on sale at best buy. I hope to have it by the end of the week. these things fly off the shelf!

  • JMillion

    missed again

  • richkoos

    I feel like they get like 10 in stock and then they’re just bought by best buy employees

    • joejoe5709

      If I worked at BB, that’s exactly what I’d do. Sell those suckers on eBay/Amazon for at least $45-50. Then take my lady out for dinner with the profits.

  • Zee Masai

    Sold out already

  • Johnny S.

    I’ve been checking every morning at around 9-10am. I saw it early and was able to score 3 of them using different transactions.

  • Daniel Russell

    I was at Best Buy and my local store just had them sitting out on a display case so I cancelled my Google Play order and bought the Best Buy one that came with Netflix. Got lucky.

    • KleenDroid

      Yep. They get them in every couple days. And everyone here keeps trying to buy them online. I don’t get it.

      • fish1552

        Sometimes, people live 100+ miles from a BestBuy and the only way to make sure you don’t waste a trip is to confirm purchase online and do a store pickup.

        • KleenDroid

          Yes it’s not even worth driving 100 miles if they have it.

          • michael arazan

            I called Best Buy they said they had them in stock, I drove 10 miles to Best Buy they were all sold out, G_Dam NSA must of leaked the information

  • Mike

    Make sure you follow @droid_life. Saw it on twitter before I saw it here.

    • Jordan

      Nice try, Droid Life twitter manager.

      • EricRees

        Pfft, you guys give us too much credit. You think we have money to pay a twitter manager?

    • Dorian Brooks

      What’s a twitter???

  • me

    Anyone else having problem connection nexus 7 tablet to their home eigi?? I keep getting”authentication error” mdg but I know I’m inputting the oasdwird correctly…

    • ToddAwesome

      Home eigi? Grrrrreat, now I need a new router? /sarcasm

  • JimmyHACK

    and…. GONE!

  • RavnosCC

    woot, got mine, $2.10 tax, free shipping. not too shabby.

  • dcc_tech

    Got through the whole checkout process, clicked on the final button, and BOOM – “cart empty”. Order didn’t go through. Sad life.

    • ssl48

      I had the same experience :(

  • ssl48

    I’m giving up on this thing. Why can’t Google make a decent amount available? They could learn a thing or two from Apple.

    • Thomas

      It is in beta, you don’t sell it for the whole world to test it plus it is a gamble to make a device and if it flops you are stuck with all the left over devices.

      • turdbogls

        where did they say it was Beta? i know parts of it are (chrome tab “casting”) but the product itself is a full production run.

        I know, we all love google, but they are not a retailer….they aren’t very good at keeping products on the shelf soon after release (see Nexus 4 and 2012 N7 and now this) this really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone.

        I for one, kept a close eye on my local best buy stores and was able to pick one up last week. awesome product for $35….no wonder its hard to keep in stock.

        • Thomas

          Watch the keynote where they announced it

          • turdbogls

            guess i must have missed that. I watched it, but it was during work so i could have easily missed it…but i see now that it is not final software……oh google, you are the only company that can release beta software to the masses and get away with it :)

    • PhoenixPath

      Do you even have the vaguest clue how many they’ve “made available”?

      At any time since launch? Or even the last batch you seem to think was less than ‘a decent amount”?

      No?

      …didn’t think so…

      I’m sure Google’s crying over the loss of the sale to you though…way to stick it to ‘em.

    • KleenDroid

      I dont know why people won’t just drive over to Best Buy and get one instead of playing games online.

      I walked in a couple days ago and picked up a second one.

      Easy Peezy.

      • Terrance Steiner

        A lot of Best Buys are sold out or never got any stock. I tried going to my local store first with no luck.

        • KleenDroid

          They get them in and sell out that same day. Morning on a shipment day is the best time to check. They continue to get them in. Next time I go in I’ll get one for whoever can’t find one.

    • j__h

      Apple often runs out of product at launch.

  • Matthew DiGiacomo

    Aaaaaaaaand it’s gone.

    • Despite707

      Beat me to it

      • gudrunwalters444

        If you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sign you’re
        not doing anything very innovative. Just move towards a new spam-free work to
        earn USD’s… bay35.com

  • Gatz

    Sold Out.

  • Jason V

    Got mine too thanks. Going to help my mom get up to date with technology with this one lol

  • CasperTFG

    Wondering how many people will pass with it going open source/closed platform.

    • Adrynalyne

      Such a load of nonsense. I am guessing you are referring to Koush’s outrageous claims that Google is breaking apps on purpose? More like, the SDK is not finished yet, and the ONLY devices that are supposed to be able to use third party apps are to be whitelisted first. Knowing that everyone trying AirCast didn’t have whitelisted receivers…I’d say its par for course. That restriction will be lifted once the SDK is final. Until then, there are supposed to be NO production apps.

  • Mike

    Got one too. It says it comes with the 3 months of Netflix as well.

  • Tirionfive

    Just ordered one. Still comes with the Netflix credit. Canceling my play store order.

  • Adam Truelove

    Mine just shipped from the Play Store today!

    • Nw_adventure

      Same here :) Ordered on the 9th -

  • Mike

    Got one!

    • Mike

      Not a bad deal. I had a $10 rewards voucher, so with the free Netflix my grand total was $3.02.

  • Mike Hilal

    Thank you! Hopefully this one will arrive in the timeframe they state. Amazon STILL has not shipped…and I bought before they sold out.

    • Mike Hilal

      Still waiting for the order status to change from Payment Validated to Preparing order…. perhaps I spoke too soon

    • JD_26

      same situation … hope it ships soon from amazon i got 2 ordered there

  • PhillipCun

    it went OOS right when i checked out last time… NOT THIS TIME. thanks D-L

  • thedonxr

    Awesome just ordered one thanks DL!
