I got a promo code thanks to the super awesome rococo, and I got a Fry's badstory to boot!
First, I went to the City of Industry Fry's since it was pretty close to the El Monte Sears Outlet which was giving away free clothes. Looking at the gaming shelves, I could quickly tell that there were no 2DS's readily available. Customer support was there at a nearby desk, so I asked them to look up the stock.
CS: "Hmm... our system shows that 1 is sold but 1 is still available. Let me look around for it."
After a short 5 minute wait, the CS rep returns with the bad news.
CS: "Sorry sir, the 1 we haven't sold is being held for another customer. We can't offer rainchecks on promo codes."
Being a savvy CAG shopper, I requested that the CS rep check for stores that still have it in stock and to put one on hold for me.
CS: "We have a 2DS Blue on hold for you at the Burbank store."
Thanking him for his help, I drove over to Burbank.
Burbank CS: "Sorry there was a miscommunication. What we said is that we didn't have any in stock for sale as they're all on hold for other customers."
I was devastated. My trip and futile efforts would have been for nothing.
Burbank CS: "But we do have 2DS Red."
And then the promo code didn't work and the manager had to do some override thing. But eventually I ended up with a 2DS Red, ready for the new Phoenix Wright release in 2 days.
Thanks again rococo!
