You know about online stock trackers. Here are some expert tips.

More and more consumers have Holiday gift shopping on their mind. The competition to find hot Holiday toys or popular video game consoles will increase rapidly in the next days. The first pro tip is to start shopping early. The real pro online shoppers have already bagged the hottest Holiday toys in September or even earlier.

The Top 10 Hottest Holiday gifts that shoppers are trying to find in stock online include SNES Classic, Luvabella and Fingerlings. There are several online stock tracker and notification services available. I4U News offer the Tracker App since this year, the only online stock tracker that sends you a smartphone notification when the item you want is in stock online. The app also works with the Apple Watch and you receive in-stock notifications on your wrist.

When a popular item in stock online at Amazon, there is an important fact to keep in mind. The Amazon offer might be hidden and not the featured offer on the product information page. Amazon's listing is hidden away in the offer listing.

You need to click the offers listing marked on the image above to check if the Amazon offer with the regular price is available. The reason why Amazon is not listing their offer on the main page can vary. In this case, Amazon has no immediate availability of Luvabella stock, but is still selling the robot doll with a shipping date of Nov. 6.

Another important thing to keep in mind is to react right away to an in-stock alert. The online inventories sell out extremely quickly. If you are a minute too late, the stock might already be depleted again. This is why smartphone notifications are ideal for online inventory notifications. You are not glued to your laptop, you can just move on with your day and just make a break when an online stock alert for the items you need arrives.

You might see cases, where there are several alerts, happen in short period of time. This is not a bug, but online shops can be very dynamic and inventory shows up and disappears in a rapid-fire behavior. It happens more often at Target than on other stores.

The Tracker app is available for free on iOS and Android. You can find the app in the app store with searching for just for "i4u".Here are the most important steps to make sure you are not buying a fake WowWee fingerling.

Alternatively, you can follow @TheTrackerApp Twitter account to receive in-stock notification on all hard to find products of the season including the SNES Classic, Luvabella and Hatchimals Surprise.
