    I created a simple service for myself to check apple.com for AirPods store pickup availability. Figured it'd be useful for the Macrumors crowd as well. Here you go: https://www.machookup.com. Hope it helps!

    thank you so much, this is really cool of you to make and put out there! Would you happen to be able to share what email address the message will be coming from so I can add it to my VIP list and get instant alerts (and also make sure it doesn't go to junk by accident) Thank you again for all of your time and for releasing this!

    It'll check all the stores you see when you search for a zip code for pickup on apple.com, since it uses the same API.

    This worked perfectly. I subscribed using my cell provider email like you said. Got a text alert when they came in stock and ordered for in store pickup. Thank you!!

    I can't believe how well this worked. Signed up last night and snagged a pair this afternoon. If your looking to get a set, this is the way to go. Thanks for setting this up for everyone!

    Happy to see it's useful to more folks. I just added support for Canada and UK too.

    Thank you so much, just scored one for my girlfriend! You should set up a beer/coffee donation link. ;)

    Thank you so much for making this! I've been checking the stock at the Reno store for days and have never caught it at the right time. Hopefully this will do the trick :)

    Thanks! not looking to make any money off of this -- it's just a fun project. If you do want to help perhaps you could email tips@macrumors.com and ask them to post about it!

    Thanks for this! I signed up yesterday and just got an alert that they are available at the Georgetown Apple Store (which is always out of stock), and just placed an order for pick-up. Thanks again!

    I signed up yesterday and I just got an alert. I went online and purchased the airpods and will be picking them up later today. Your system worked flawlessly. Thank you!

    That's great to hear. From what I can tell a ton of stores showed stock around 1PM PT but it all disappeared in less than 5 minutes.

    i noticed that too, i got an alert from my local store in Century City California, though they didnt show as availible to order online for pickup - but my office is pretty close so i briskly walked down - got there 6 minutes later, all gone. no more than 10 minutes from receiving the email alert to being in the store!!! this things do sell like hot cakes!!!
