Remix Best Buy

Ever say to yourself "Man, Best Buy's web site sucks. I could build a better one!"

I'm calling your bluff. Best Buy Remix is live. We've taken the BBY product catalog and turned it into an open API. Swing by, check out the documentation, sign up for an API key and do something with our data.

I dare you.


You'll see me in the forums there under my real name: Kevin Matheny. Say hi.

Can you please provide details of how you got the widget to show up on the blog?

The widget is not yet released, although it will be soon. I'm shooting for February.

The process is pretty simple. There is a web page (hosted on Google App Engine) that lets you create and name your list, provide your affiliate ID (if you have one, it's optional) and then enter the Best Buy SKUs. The result is a bit of javascript that you copy and paste into your blog's sidebar.
