Brickseek now requires you to login/register just to search? WTF!

Anyone else getting this issue? First they changed the layout of the search and results page yesterday and now they're requiring you to register and/or login just to run a search. What a pain in the ass.

But I can see why they're going this route, since I'm sure there's millions of searches done via their site on a daily basis. But it's a pain in the ass for sure.

Did account creation and/or login work for anyone? I wasn't able to do either, just got errors about fields being incorrect, using Chrome if that matters.

If RingPlus taught us anything, it's that free is only for so long...

While Brickseek figures out whatever it is they need to figure, here are some Walternatives:

http://stockbyme.com/stock-check/walmart provides current clearance pricing

https://www.zoolert.com/walmart-i...y-checker/ provides current reported numbers on hand, but their pricing is standard web pricing, not clearance.

Between those two, you can get as accurate a picture as Brickseek provided.

I'm cutting & pasting into notepad & a task list to keep hunting info local.

Google around, I'm sure many other adequate solutions exist for other retailers.

I don't know where you guys are getting the login requirement. It just looks like they've redesigned their website. One the bottom of the homepage there are the logos of each store and on the following page there is a line for you to put in the sku (or whatever) and the zip, as usual.

Thanks for the heads up on those two options for Walmart( bmseek.tk is another). But I'm having a difficult time finding an adequate replacement for the Target stock checker that Brickseek has/had. Fyndly used to be an option, but they got shut down by Target I believe.

looks like they are requiring an account to access the newest, most recent, clearances. ): i'm assuming that is what the "hidden deals" are. all clearances i see are at least a week old.

$10/month is too expensive just to see latest clearance.

guess they're just gonna have to lose out on that ad revenue.
