Hello Best Buy Catalog API Folk!
We are writing today to give you a heads up on two changes to our Products API.

You can continue to exclude digital SKUs by including “digital= false" in your search query. For example:
Another tip for filtering your results: you can query using one of our updateDate fields to look for recent changes to a product or products. Available date fields include itemUpdateDate, priceUpdateDate, inStoreAvailabilityUpdateDate, onlineAvailabilityUpdateDate, and activeUpdateDate. The itemUpdateDate field reflects all changes to the product's data. If you wanted to look for all updates since a specified time, you can use a query like this:
If you have questions about either the default results change or about update dates, email us at email@example.com.
