At my local Radio Shack today, yes they do still exist, and see they have the Roku 3 (4200R) for $49.99. This is the 2014 model. The newest model (4230R) added voice search otherwise they are the same.

Seeing as how many people have been able to PM the Moto SB6141 at Staples, Best Buy and Target I imagine there are PM opportunities for this. And although I will not advocate it with the model number change and the inevitable confusion among the less knowledgeable employees I am sure some may even be able to get the current model for this price when they PM. Very YMMV. Of course you can also start at a RS near you to see if they have it.

Hopefully I have covered everything. Again I will say it is very YMMV so keep that in mind. I suggest you read the two SB6141 threads for some hints but I think this is quite doable. Even the 4200R at $50 is a pretty good deal.

edit: Confirmed success with PM at Staples.com using chat for the newer 4230R. On your marks...

This worked for me:

1. In chat, give them the Staples link http://www.staples.com/Roku-3-423...ct_1682097 and the RadioShack link (above) right away.
2. If necessary give them a Zip Code where it is in stock. Look in thread for some hints.
3. Hopefully get price match. Rep will have you place order and then adjust price. Good luck!
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Price is back to $99

Any one who are trying to price matching this one with staples chat. Don't waste your time.

I just chatted with a nice agent. He tried to price match it. But the system denied and this message pop-up
Shiwani B.
It says: Slickdeals and Fatwallet are broadcasting this incorrectly***** The model that RadioShack sells is the old 4200R model and Staples has the new 4230R model Radio shack website is down and unable to place orders. We do not price match competitors unless they have both dotcom and retail presence laugh out loud

Better do it in-store.

Just got off the phone w/Staples and I quote: "If we can find the price in a online search and it is a product we carry, we will price match that advertised price......" LMAO

Did you even read my post or bother to search for the two SB6141 threads?. Both are extremely popular because people ARE PMing RS.

Here, I'll do it for you. This one can easily be done the same. Only question is if the other stores have the 4200R. But like I said, I bet the 4230R can and will be had instead.

Staples only shows the 4230R on their site so you would think they would catch the model no. difference. I wish I could say I was surprised it worked but that's why I posted.

I got the 4200R for $30 from Target and literally just opened it yesterday. Otherwise I would be all over this. Maybe I still will as I am really liking the Roku 3.

Yeah, staples chat told me they were not the same model so they would not price match for me over chat.

No go here, they immediately shot it down via chat and said it was a different model.
