when you click the link on see deal it will take you to a screen that will ask you for your state and then from their you pick from the cities listed it will direct you to only the stores that are participating. Those stores are only the ones that will have the item in stock.

In my county, they're just a few BB stores that have it and they are far from big cities. Lol.

Why not just have them in stores and not tell everyone and let people who come in to shop buy them. Not like they wouldn't sellout that way .
