Add more to the 'Will not sell list'
Oxnard, Newbury Park, Simi Valley, Moorpark
All have 0 or 2-3 old DS units in the case. Compared to last week (they were packed with old ones). Wonder where they all went?

I don't know what stores you're talking about though.

Glad to be a "confirmer." I hope you guys are happy with your lites!

I just got one at the South Gate Target. There were still probably about 5 or 6 left. The employee there said they had sold about 5 of them today.


Yeah, I actually had to go back again today. B/c the DS Lite that my friend got last night had one dead pixel right smack in the middle of the bottom screen. So we went back to get it exchanged. I also saw a guy buy a Lite and Brain Age while I was there. There aren't that many left, so get them while you can! (Traffic getting out of that plaza was horrible...)

I also picked up a DSLite at South Gate today (picked it up around 3:10;there were two left). After I bought it, I shopped around for a while till 4:00 and checked the DSLite section before I left. There was only one left. :-(

Does anyone know if they restocked it or is it sold out?

Seems like they restocked it. I bought one around 7 and they have quite a few left.

That's great to hear! Hopefully more SoCal CAGers will be able to take advantage of this and pick one up! :-D

This was the first time that I went to that Target and man is it huge!! About 2 times the size of my Target!! :-o!!

Found a way to get Targets to break street date! Thanks to snood's post in the main DS Lite bragging thread which I'll paste here:

I found a worker in housewares, asked if he could do a stock check for me, and gave him the product code for the Lite: 207 01 0007

His handheld computer thing said that they were all in the stockroom, so he went back there and returned with 2 brand new ds lites.

Complete credit for this idea goes to JETFIRE714 on Fatwallet, as soon as I read his post it seemed just clever enough to work. I just had to try since there were absolutely no stores that broke the street date here.


Totally works, no problem. Rang it up in the front and out the door!

That works and all, but not in SoCal. Apparently everyone already knows not to sell the DSL until the 11th.
But if anyone wants to try the method out at a no go target and tell us what happens.

Um, it does work in SoCal. I just said I did it myself, last night at a "no go Target." That's why I asked someone in hardwares instead of someone in electronics.

Sorry I didn't read your post all the way through. I tried it and I just walked out of Target with a BRAND NEW DS LITE!

Tax varies from county to county in California, with most counties having 7.25% (I think).

There's this weird smudge on my DS Lite below the screen, trying to resist returning it!

ToyMandala.com at sherman oaks is selling the DS lite US version for 149.95. I ask the guy if they're allowed to sell it before the street date and he said "everyone else is selling it".

If that were true, he wouldn't charge $150 for it. Just do the Target trick!

When I went to La Cienaga last night, they said there were no DS units in stock. Maybe it's a different situation today.
