500GB WD: My Passport Essential USB 3.0 External Hard Drive $26.85 (Possible YMMV)
Just came home from Walmart[walmart.com] after looking for an external HDD to gift. I noticed one for $26.85 that was OOS online but offered in-store pick-up.
I figured what could it hurt to see if there were any near me. It turned out every store near me had a few and I successfully. nabbed the two from the one near my house. They were marked as $71 in store.
2. Click "check more stores" and select a store that says, "Today Order online now!" (So it shows that it is in stock/Add To Cart on the Walmart website. Just ENTER IN "NJ" if your area doesnt have any in stock for the location)
3. Print out that page and take it to your local staples B&M and have them price match with the Item #: 785785
Western Digital My Passport 500GB Portable External Hard Drive, Black
Model #: WDBKXH5000ABK
ANY EXPERIENCE SAYING THAT THEY DONT HAVE EVEN AFTER GETTING A PICKUP EMAIL/CONFIRMATION FOR PICKUP
Local inventory at my store is listed at two units. They cancelled my order this morning claiming they don't have any in stock. I placed another one just to annoy them, I'm sure the employees snatched them.
If you crack one open, please post connector details here!

"I often get asked if you can swap out drives or take the drive out of a portable drive and use it in a console gaming unit or a notebook PC and the answer to that with the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 versions of the WD My Passport is no." (http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1715/1/)
PM To Staples works (YMMV). Just got one. Staples SKU# 785785 - rndman
Staples is investigating the price change, will let us know by calling if the order will not go through, if no call then it will go through.
Being in South Florida, I missed out on this one. But just because I missed out doesn't mean my fellow Floridian SDer's should. So with some time, I basically went up the Florida coast (constantly changing my location) and found these available. These Walmarts are way to far for me to travel to, but perhaps it might be in your neck of the woods. Here's what I found. I hope it helps out someone.
