yep rang up $300 at mine, checked another xbox and it was $100 more for a smaller HDD, was an easy decision.

how accurate is kmart's online inventory for in store availability? I was planning on picking one up at a kmart about 70 miles away today, and now I check and it is gone (I should have ordered it a few days ago for 400 and got a price match when I picked it up, but I wasn't thinking) . I am going on a 300 mile road trip and I was wondering if it would be worth checking the kmarts along the way even if they show out of stock on line.

I wouldn't trust the stock checker. Every Kmart I go into is a hot mess so I can't imagine the stock checker is accurate.

I know for a fact the stock checker is messed up. I have 2 kmarts near me. I bought the only Star Wars bundle one store had. The stock checker says the other store has none, was in there the other day and saw 2 of them in the case.

Who ever is near Boca Raton, FL the KMart located at 1401 Palmetto Park Boulevard has one left. I had them put it to the side but Im not going to be able to go and get it. So it's there for the taking. Good luck!

I can also verify that the stock checking online is not reliable. The locator told me there were none in my area (up to 300 miles!). However, I went in earlier this evening and there were three! I had the guy check and it came up for the $300 so I bought one.

I can pick up one for anyone that wants it. Not many CAGs in my area that I've found. Not sure what shipping + insurance would be on these things so it might not be worth it.

Road-tripped and grabbed one at the South Anthony Kmart in Ft. Wayne. There is still one there if anyone wants it.

Thanks, OP. It'll keep my other 360s company.

So can we say that this $300 is almost a universal price drop for Kmart in store only since it appears to be $400 online still?

If there is another potential price drop, what would you speculate? Maybe $250?

I am thinking about buying this now and holding onto it unopened and hoping Kmart does the price drop within the next 30 days. I would do the price adjustment return and repurchase and I want to ensure a copy. I have seen more and more people on this forum saying that they are picking up the last one at their area locations and I want to ensure I have one before they are gone just like the SW: TOR CE.

Thanks for the input of all of you regarding the inventory checker. It showed out of stock across Washington state and after a road trip with my wife down the I-5 corridor I found one in the last K-mart we checked. It had shown out of stock since I started monitoring a while ago. While I was there I noticed they were selling Zumba Rush for 10 bucks, but were out of stock. I went to another K Mart and they were out of stock too, but they said the 10 price was a price mistake that they corrected early on in the week. Some people at the first store got lucky. (It was my anniversary, so I got lucky too ;))

Yeah, the inventory checker is horse $hit. I checked two nearby Kmarts and it said one had it one didn't. Well, that was true. Except it was the other way around. The one they said had it, didn't, and the one they said did not have it, did.

As far as a price drop, if one happens it will be next week at gamescom. If we don't see one then, then one will be unlikely for a while. I anticipate a PS3 Price drop on at least the 320GB Move bundle, since Walmart and Amazon and next week Target are/were all selling it at 299( 349 MSRP)

Is this based on anything? Either way, my Kmart had only one left which I snagged. I hope that it does drop a bit more. I have no rush in playing it so I can wait a while.

Great deal OP!

I had the opposite happen. The inventory (checked PC website and iPad app) said one only at two stores, but the one I visited had two. Good deal for now unless there is a price drop coming...

Thanks OP!

The system said they were in stock online at the West Kendall (Miami), FL Kmart on Kendall Drive yesterday. I went there and they saw none behind the glass. I told the guy that they said that it was indeed available in store and he said there was one "allegedly" earlier that day, but did not see it now. I asked him to please look for it in the back stock room or in the inventory since I made the drive and he said that he cannot look for it without the UPC. So I went on my phone and searched for the UPC and gave it to him. He found 4 in the system that were in the store and they were not a part of any layaway. So he went in the back warehouse and found the box that said do not open until April 2012 and found the 4 sitting in there in pristine condition. He brought one out and since it is $300, it qualifies for 4 months layaway. So I put the minimum down and I asked would they have any price match adjustments if the console goes on sale again before I pick my system up? He said just pay for it in full to ensure you do not lose the deposit and then customer service would give you the difference back. So the point is, the online system may be accurate if it does say in stock, but you need to find the right employee to look for it. Most employees will say if they are not sitting out, that they are out of stock. So give them the UPC as that is how Kmart looks for things with their inventory to see if they are in their back stock room. The UPC: 885370332889 and there are still 3 left in that location, but th guy left them in the back stock room.

Has anyone tried ordering online for in-store pick-up at $400, and then
getting the price adjusted?

I managed to snag one up at the Kmart in Corona,CA. I just couldn't resist it for that price.


Got the last one at the Corona, CA, store. Although the online stock checker showed it was not available at this store, I still went to the store. Although the shelf for the consoles was empty, I did see the clearance price tag for this system. I asked one of the employees in the electronics department who confirmed with me that there was only one left in the back.

Was it still $300 or did it drop any more?

I have a feeling that the guy that made the statement that this would see another drop by the end of the month was only speculating just by judging the trend of price drops.

You got it. I suppose it was an excellent deal. Kmart did this before with limited editions. I may wait for a special edition 720 and snag it here.
