If there's a jump in retail sales for the month we'll know who to thank (or blame, LOL). Way to go Cheapy!

Yes because Nintendo's price drop on the 12th won't increase retail sales in any significant way this month

I already bought my 3DS at Best Buy. Would I be able to get them to adjust the price today? Do I have to print out something from Wal Mart?

Got mine in Henry County in GA. went at 8:00 and the drop had not gone into effect. at 8:45 I found the department manager in the electronics section and asked about the price drop and the manager confirmed it and asked if I was going to purchase one. the manager lowered the price for me right then and there.

I just got a BestBuy price adjustment with no hassle. Simply told them that the Wal-Mart across the street had them for $169.96, they called over to Wal-Mart to confirm it was that price and in stock, walked out 10 minutes later with the price adjustment. The kid at mine was really nice too. I can post pics of the receipt if necessary.

You likely won't be able to unless you can get them to call up a Walmart and have them confirm the in-store price. Even that is YMMV as Best Buy likely won't accept it unless it's "advertised" and this isn't an advertised deal as of now. You should have no problem getting an adjustment after the 12th though so no worries.

Just came back from one of the stores in Knoxville, TN. It already had the 169.96 price tag set up. I got the last Aqua Blue model but there were plenty of Cosmo Blacks left. Kind of annoying since I went at midnight and it wasn't changed yet. At least I got one and that is the important thing. I have avoided playing/seeing a 3DS just so I can experience the 3D myself after buying one. Finally, I'll get that chance! (Got Zelda too ^_^)

Confirming that Columbia, MO has the price drop at Wal Mart. I was able to go to Best Buy and have them price match it and got my $87.36 back from last week when I picked mine up. Thanks for the heads up Cheapy!

Anyone tried any LA stores yet? I've never been to a wal-mart down here, but was thinking of checking one out on Crenshaw on my lunch break. Would love to get confirmation from one of you guys, though!

Price is a go at Strongsville, OH Wal-Mart. Shelf tags and signs advertising the new price. Pics available of the signs, tags, and receipt if needed. They have 4 cosmo black and 5 aqua blue still on the floor.

Went to WM on Independence in Springfield, MO. The tags were up for the drop. Got a pic with my iPhone. Went across the street to get the one I bought at BB adjusted. He didn't even look at the pic I took and said it was the 2nd one of the day. Got $86.92 back.

Thanks Cheapy!!

Well I guess this saves me a trip, this is the closest Walmart to me and I don't think I want to drive to the Crenshaw one.

Scored one a little over an hour ago at Livonia, MI. Prices were marked down at the shelf.

Took the last black one... there were 2 or 3 blue ones when I left.

Went to the East Hills WalMart in Bakersfield, CA. Manager was cool--the price hadn't dropped yet but he went ahead and did it for me. Had a grip of black and a good amount of aqua as well. GREAT SUCCESS
