I saw the DJI mavic air going for 50% off at target as a YMMV deal. My local target has it for $799 still and ive been checking daily.
This morning it went from in stock to low stock and is still $800. But who is dumb enough to buy one for $800 when walmart and other retailers have it for a lot less?

Are people somehow claiming the ones in stock at full price and not actually buying it until the price drops? Or do they buy then return and rebuy somehow? Something is fishy and there is a game being played.
It may very well be a return and re-buy at a lower priced store that people are doing. I know I've done it a couple times with larger items (Samsung 43" HDtv, for example) to get a much lower price before.

The only trick is how to go about it. With larger price difference items I would definitely NOT try for an immediate re-buy after a return. Instead I've taken a walk around the store and come back 30-40 minutes later. If it's a very big item they usually will have it up at the return desk still unless the electronics people are very vigilant on getting their returns processed and re-stickered immediately.

Anyway you might want to check Walmart as they had the bright yellow clearance stickers covering the normal price ones for a couple of drones. I don't know which ones exactly though.
