Bestbuy.com was down this morning for about an hour. Best Buy has issued a statement revealing the cause, but now as of 16:30 CT the bestbuy.com is down again.
BestBuy.com is down again. Best Buy was down this morning already.
Update: Best Buy is finally up again.
Best Buy has issued a statement earlier explaining what happened: “A concentrated spike in mobile traffic triggered issues that led us to shut down BestBuy.com in order to take proactive measures to restore full performance. Our consumers can return to BestBuy.com in the next several hours to take advantage of today’s door busters.”
BestBuy.com was fully operational again, but as of 16:30 CT the online store is down again.
This is going to hurt the bottom line. I cannot imagine that there is crazy traffic on Black Friday afternoon. Most of the best Black Friday deals are sold out already. I assume Best Buy has a software issue somewhere on their platform, maybe mobile access related.
The Best Buy “We’Re Sorry” outage page is really pretty. Someone took quite some time to prepare that graphics. Did Best Buy anticipate website problems?
While Bestbuy.com is down head over to Amazon. They seem to be always up and running.
When it is back you can buy some of the newly aded doorbuster deals released today (see below) and the iPad Air 2 deals saving $100.
