Best Buy Catalog APIs – Winter Newsletter
Hello Best Buy Catalog API Community!
It has come to our attention that we have a few endpoints that still look like they are in a beta state, even though they really aren’t. In order to take them out of beta for once and for all, we will be updating the URI for our Recommendations and Buying Options (Open Box) endpoints. In January, we will update the endpoint path for these from /beta/products to /v1/products. We will have 301 redirects in place to give you time to update your code – we are letting you know now in case you are looking to burn off a few calories between plates of Holiday treats by updating your code to prepare for this change.
And if that wasn’t enough calorie-burning fun for you…we have a nifty new tool you can take out for a spin! If you are looking for a way to slim down your calls to our APIs or just get a whole bunch of data in bulk, check out our CLI Tool on GitHub. Using this nifty command line tool, you can get a bulk download of our tasty Catalog data, customized to your tastes: json, xml, csv, just one category, everything but the music, it’s all up to you.
As always, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need more information.
