Then put it together with hurry,
In stock brings out how it's not necessarily a sale, rather back in stock (which notifying about in stock is only a thing with coronavirus related things)
I can do, In Stock: HURRY!

That better?

Personally, the issue doesn't bother me, I was just offering solutions.

I'll let those that complained respond :)

Covid steal / grab / rush / quick

ETA
Just met another friend with the same complaint
Totally agree. It's ridiculous to use Hurry! When you could be using the vastly different "Rush!" Or "Quick!"

What was the price of a box of 50 masks before COVID-19? Was today’s $3.68 the old normal?

How about "Back in stock: Hurry!"?
It just gets annoying when you post hurry for the same deal 30 times... Makes people pay less attention to deals that start off "hurry!" altogether... (Almost like the boy who cried wolf...)
 
I can do, In Stock: HURRY!

That better?
How does that convey it'll sell out in seconds to minutes and it's in super high demand and get bought like crazy every time we share it?

There's two points. First one is to at least mention it's a Corona related deal and 2nd is to switch up the loshon to make it more distinguishable.

You can post what ever you want. I'll look at the item before I buy it. Is there anyone that buys items based on the initial word in the title?
I try to sound as intelligent as possible.

I think people like to know if this is a good price for the item, or if this is a deal simply because the item is now in stock.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I also look at the item, but if I'm busy and see a notification that says "Hot" or "Hurry" I might take a quick look, and see its a back in stock clorox (which i am personally stocked up with the Solimo  wipes from way back when). I think "Back in stock Hurry" makes sense.

(especially since it sells out in second thanks to all the resellers  ;D)

When I see "Hurry!...[item I'minterested in]", I'd also take a quick glance, but if I see "Hurry! Clorox wipes...", I just ignore it. I don't see that being annoying.

Eta: if you're seeing the "Hurry" post that means you're reading it anyway wether its "Hurry" or not, there's no way you're getting just notifications for "Hurry" posts.

How about, Back in stock: (TEMPORARILY!)
That shows that it is not a long term deal and if someone wanted it they would know to HURRY or RUSH on their own.

I think by this point, everyone knows that clorex goes out of stock quickly..
