    Got the email that my band was in at the store. Picked it up and the rep told me they are no longer taking orders.

    The local MS Store here, Roseville CA, has continually been receiving stock on all sizes of the MS Band. They received a shipment of 24 of each size on 11-15-2014 and then another shipment, not sure the exact amount, 11-19-2014. This is what I was told by different reps. Today, I went in and decided to buy one if they were in stock, and indeed they were. All the employees acted as though they had a lot in stock today. If you call the phone number that is listed while looking up your local store online, you're connected to a call center who have been advised not to check in with the store of your choosing to see if it is indeed in stock; holiday shopping, high demand, and inaccurate inventory readings. Your best bet is to physically go to the store and see if they are in. Hope this helps anyone who has been having trouble acquiring one online though the MS Store.

    BTW, this thing is pretty sweet. Glad I decided to get.

    In stead of a green button saying "notify me when it's available" previously, the online store shows a grey button saying "Out of stock" now. That means they do not want to notify potential buyers any more. Probably the band won't be back online for several months.

    I disagree, especially since it sounds like the stores are receiving more stock. I think it's more likely they realized that the email notification was pointless.

    I also suspect that Microsoft is trying to get more people going to their stores. It doesn't look good to have Apple stores always bustling and their stores completely empty.

    That's exactly what I meant. Their first priority is focusing on the stores now. I do not think the band will come back to the ontline store until the demands from physical stores have been fulfilled.

    If you live in Southern California, the Microsoft Store just opened a new location at the Cerritos Mall on Saturday. I waited three hours in line to get a Band and an HP Stream 7.
    I went back today to do more shopping and they still have a few Large and Small Bands, but no Medium.

    Got this from Microsoft good luck people:


    11/24/14

    Dear Microsoft Store Customer,

    Thank you for your interest in the Microsoft Band. Due to customer response, we no longer have any available for online sale. However, your local Microsoft Store may have some in stock through the holidays. Visit or call your local store. Find a store

    To make it right, we're giving you a one-time promo code good for $10 off your next purchase of $50 or more from the Microsoft online store.*

    They had a pretty good stock at the Bethesda, MD, store this morning. I think it may also have just opened.

    I just picked up a medium at the Beachwood, Ohio store. They have 6 more mediums in stock. I didn't check on other sizes. Strange thing is, I was on their waiting list and they never called...

    I'm going to call my store tomorrow. I have my band on backorder since 10/31, but then again I'm in NYC and we only have 1 store so they might have hundreds or thousands on backorder.

    Got this stupid mail also, making it for me impossible now to get this product unless I know somebody who happens to go to US to buy it for me. I'm not going to buy from those leechers on ebay or amazon who bought 20 of these watches just to steal from people. Normal people like me who make a honest living can't buy just 1 of these because of these youknowwho thanks to Microsoft. Rules like one item per order, why would you. Just sell sell sell and give a finger customers. It will cost them in the long run. But who cares.

    I would like to thank Microsoft to think of another way to annoy me even more. To make it right I get a 10 dollar coupon code to buy a product I don't want.. I would really like to say where they can put the stupid 10 dollars of them, but I guess this forum will not appreciate this. I want the Microsoft band not a stupid 10 dollars on some other product!

    After 2 disappointments in a row they dare to give me 10 dollar discount if I spend 50 dollars (trying to make money on top of it also) on a product I never wanted. Sending me to a Microsoft Store may have but probably don't have store. Not only leaving me with a order number but now also without a watch.

    Thank you Microsoft for ruining my day again!

    So the end of the story is I can't get one because I live in New Mexico...where there are no Microsoft stores. :P It seems they are no longer bothering with online orders.

    As much as I want one, not road tripping to Arizona over a watch, and scalpers are evil and not worth my time.

    I wonder if they maybe have a decent amount of supply but just want people to visit a MS Store. For their sake I hope so.

    Yeah it is cynical, but they have nothing to lose by forcing big-time MS fans into stores where salespeople can try to sell them more things.

    I would hope not. I would guess the majority of people do not live in close proximity to a MS Store. Thereby limiting the amount of sales their stores will see.

    Hi Guys,

    I live in Australia and I'm flying into LA on the 1st of December, I'll be staying at one of the Disneyland Hotels; and I'd definitely like to grab a band while I'm over here.

    Google Maps is telling me that the two closest stores is at the Los Cerrritos Mall, and the South Coast Plaza.

    Which is more likely to have stock in size large on that date would you think? Or is it likely they both would?

    Better check from here. You get phone numbers to call for availability and even get directions within a shopping mall.
    Find a store - Microsoft Store U.S.

    Sometimes the phone number goes to the MS call center.

    South Coast Plaza might be more fun. Its an amazing dual mall so worth a trip. If they don't have any left they can call Mission and Cerritos stores directly to check stock and hold one.

    Anyone have any word on online availability?

    I purchased one on Oct. 31 and kept it for a couple weeks but decided a different size would fit better so I sold it on eBay.

    I have been waiting to pick one up online from the Microsoft Store, as I don't want to pay a premium on Ebay, or drive a couple hours to get one in store.

    I called Microsoft and was told by a rep that spoke with the "warehouse" after being placed on hold, and they should be in stock this week possibly, but probably next week. I really doubt the rep knows though.
