EDIT: When I actually got to my local store I was told they were sold out until I pointed out that the inventory checker said there were 3 left. The cashier was not happy but went to the back and pulled them out. I bought 2 as I wanted to leave at least one for a fellow FW'er. So yeah...it works...thanks OP!!
My local claimed that they had none in stock even though my online checker said 4 were in stock. Those in Atlanta, my store said that North Druid Hill store has 20 in stock. I can't get there today so I'm offering to anyone interested.
Went to my local OD in Lake Worth Florida. Found none on display so I asked them to check an item number for me. She said they have them in lock-up. I purchased 4 @ $5.99 each. Its great to see the reaction of the cashier when they ring it up Thanks OP !

Local OD supposedly had 4 of the 32GB in stock - but they looked high and low for them and could not find them. However, after some hunting, they had a bunch of the 16GB drives in stock for $2.99; I bought 8 of them.
wtfu said: what did you guys tell the staffs? Do you guys just show them OP's pictures and tell them to do a price match? I just asked them to check the SKU. Once he did he was like 32gig for 6 bucks, no way. But the computer showed he had 10 in stock. He had to find the manager before they located them in the back. He asked how many I wanted and I said only 4, I guess that leaves 6 for you.
Ran to a Chicago location last night and clerk saw 3 in stock for the 32gb. Said "I know we have them", and led me to the aisle. Nothing. Got on the walkie talkie and came back to me saying "sorry no more". I asked about the 3 in stock and he said it's a glitch. Something fishy about how they're operating.

Yeah, this is similar to my experience last night. Went to a store that had 1 in stock according to the inventory checker. Was told they sold it the day before, but he looked it up in the system, and another store had 20 of them. So I went to that store, where they couldn't find any at all, said it must have been a mistake. Before I could stop him, he called a different store that had 8 in stock to see if they had them, and he unfortunately told them the price. Of course they (too quickly) said they didn't have any. I gave up after that. No offers to price match, either. Congrats to those who got them.
The managers have these locked up in the back. The sales associate took me on a ride through-out the store (clearance bins and racks) this morning too. When the manager was finally asked they knew where they were.
Tell them that are most likely locked up in the back. Have a manager go and get them for you. Show them a picture on your smartphone if need be.
same thing happened to me in Chicago showed 8 in stock I wanted them all manager stopped me and said they are already sold but the clerk showed them in stock and actually physically brought them out later I learned that the manager bought them so I emailed corporate within 1 hour they called me and after the conversation they emailed me a $25 gift card
