This is a different sale. There must be 24K A2's left to clear out. The other one was for 80 GB PS3 with 10 free movies. This is 40 GB with $50 GC. They probably pay 350 for 40GB PS3s.

I wonder what "below cost" is for the PS3. As far as I can tell, they're charging full retail on the A2 and A3 for that deal ($200 and $300, respectively). But maybe the "below cost" thing is an indication that it won't be full retail price. Someone posted pictures of what the deal supposedly is and it was full retail, but who knows until they reveal it on their website.

First of all we don't even know if this is really from wal-mart. Any hobo could have printed out an excel document and then scanned it.

The pink iPod is up on http://www.walmart.com/secret. I don't think they'll be full price and be below cost. We'll see Friday I guess what they're priced at.

Deal's posted: A2 for $198 + 5 instant + 5 mail-in. A3 for $298 + 2 in box + 5 instant + 5 mail-in. A2, really good deal, A3, meh, not bad. I don't see them selling a ton though.

How does that verify that this form is really from wal-mart though? With some of the avid HD-DVD fanboys I wouldn't be surprised at all if someone photoshoped this.

I completely disagree. It would have to be a pretty tech savvy hobo.
