Went to my local Office Depot here LA County to buy a Surface 3 (not Pro) for their advertised price of $249.99 on sale. At the website, it said in-store purchase only. Website showed none available at all stores. I called the store to see if they could order it. Person who answered said yes. I went to the store only to find out that they could not. I was a little unhappy as it was a long ride, and this was for a birthday present I was buying. Store manager felt bad for the aggravation and upsold me on the Pro 4 128 GB, with I5 processor. They discounted me $250 (basically the cost of the Surface 3) as a courtesy. They still had to order it for me as it was not in stock, and they also coded the receipt in a way so it couldn't be price matched. Just putting it out there to my fellow SD'ers. May be worth a shot. Fyi, they receipt shows that the discount was a price match, although that was not the case. Maybe prices will drop soon? Good luck.
Remember this is a YMMV.
