Unfortunately you must visit a Best Buy store to take advantage of this deal as it is currently unavailable online. Simply go to Customer Service at Best Buy and ask for an OMS for SKU #7522006 (Canada SKU is #10172249). You will have the option for shipping, which is free. This is a good option for those who already have the game and do not want to buy four new Gamecube controllers from Gamestop. I just got back from Best Buy and pre-ordered it for $19.99.

Hopefully everyone will play nice and not put them on eBay right away. At some point there will eventually be enough supply. I must give credit to The Tanooki website for the heads up: http://www.thetanooki.com/2014/12...ore-order/

So basically, you're telling them to place an order for x amount of stock... but they'll hold it for you?

Technically, yes. Once they get it in stock, at the warehouse it gets shopped directly to your house. I've done this before for something (an appliance) that wasn't in-store, but available online because I wanted to use an in store only coupon. Not sure how well this would work with something that may or may not come in stock anytime soon. Can't really hurt if you really want it.

I'm heading to bestbuy later to pick something up. I'll see if it works out.

This post will probably do more harm than good unfortunately.

No-go for me in California.

"Sorry, the item is sold out. And it's marked as a clearance item so you can't pre-order any. Check other stores to see if they have it in stock"

I work here and can say the warehouse had WAY more then enough for everyone a few days ago. They slowly started to dwindle but still had quite a few as of yesterday. Came in today and the stock is 0. This WAS NOT a preorder. This was live stock available on hand at the warehouse. You ordered it, shipped right to you or for store pickup.

The estimated ship date when I ordered it was January 1st, although that is based on the level that they have in stock. Still better than any other option out there right now.

So happy reddit broke this more than a day ago and it took such a slow time to get to deal sites. As happy as I am with finding deals on sites like slickdeals, way too many scumbags surf them and wipe out stocks of harder to find items so they can turn a profit.

I know what you mean, and especially with the YMMV stuff.

About a year ago I was looking for this Samsung TV that was on sale at Walmart to replace the TV I had in my bedroom and I couldn't find a damn one within 50 miles of me in Dallas, TX, but some guy was able to get like 9 of them to resale on the east coast.

Are you talking about when Walmart site was messed up and everything was priced incredibly low? If so, I would have bought all 9 as well. It's not their fault they got there before you when it's clearly a mistake and only lasted a few hours.
