Used http://brickseek.com...ventory-checker to check Splatoon's inventory knowing this website is not 100% accurate. Most stores were showing 1 or less, a couple had 2. I fell asleep since I had been up a super long time, woke up at 3:30am check the inventory checker again, noticed that the closest store near me was reporting 0 in stock now but the 2nd closest still had 2 listed. Decided why not, it's not that far away and it's only a torrential downpour outside right now so I went. Noticed in the game case they had like 20 copies of Splatoon which I found odd, deduced they weren't opening them, found the games up front 1 copy of Splatoon right in front of me - grabbed it. One copy of Majora's mask also right next to that, grabbed it. Also a copy of Smash for 3DS near that one, grabbed it. Easy...Saw maybe 3 other shoppers in the entire store. Also had several copies of the Lego games for WiiU and 3DS, I had Marvel Superheroes in my hands for awhile but after walking around the store thinking I ended up putting it back since I haven't really enjoyed those games in the past and have a huge backlog already. 

 

Walked around seeing if any of the toys were still there for my DD, nope but found some of those myreaders books tucked away near a checkout terminal near the entrance - got a couple of those, self checked out, went to Target they didn't have what I wanted - used the same inventory checker on my phone except for Target saw instock at another Target. Went to the other Target got Mario Maker w/ Gift Card and a New 3DS XL (Black) applied GC to already discounted 3DS (Needed something to play the 3DS games I got at Walmart) and came home. 

 

All in all a successful run. Just need to get Smash Bros for Wii U from Best Buy and I got all but 2 of the things on my Black Friday list. A play doh set for $10 and the Lego Duplo blocks for $30 I missed out on both at Walmart.

I'm in Walmart right now but no one is in the electronics section. Only 5 copies of Splatoon in the glass case at this location. They're preparing the store it looks like. Moving a bunch of the clothes away to make more room for long lines, etc

You don't have to it'll ring up the sale price starting early afternoon. Try to act as surprised as the clerk will be when they scan it ;)

Well I'm thinking about going right now, it's 2am here.

If I buy Splatoon at Walmart before the sale starts, then return later after the chaos and return it, can I then turn around and re-buy it at the sale price on the spot?
