"Limited Availability" means they have 1 in the system, and it may be a return.
"Available" means they have at least 2 of the model in stock, so is unlikely to be a return.

Now that you have what you want, please don't buy any more in this area. I'm trying to find one to use for myself. Can't afford to spend much more time at the T.O. Apple Store.

Has anyone purchased a 16gb wifi yet? I've only read about people buying 32gb's.

I'm watching that tracker like a hawk! Thanks to the guy who posted the links.

I drive by a Target during my commute. I was shocked to find them in stock this morning. I was able to buy three for my family. While checking out I called a friend who arrived there 30 min later but they had sold out. Frankly I didn't expect quite this much demand given nearly everyone I know has version one.

Thank you!!

Just used the DPCI codes to check inventory at the Targets in my area and one store about 30 minutes away had what I wanted. Called and they said yes we have them but just a couple left. I arrived and they were very helpful and went to go look for it. They couldnt find it and I asked if they needed the DPCI number and they said yes. They didn't even know the dang product number. They found it instantly and I was in and out in 10 minutes. I would never have driven out there if it weren't the help of all you guys with the product codes. I hope you are able to find one sooner than later. I'm cancalling my online order right now. Chow!

Target worked! Woo hoo!

I got mine (att black 64gb) this morning at the Burbank, CA target. I used the online inventory search and it worked! The woman working the electronics dept said they didn't have any, but since i had the target id number I asked customer service and she found it...located in stock room C. Must be some special stock room because she had to ask the manager. He had the woman who already told me no go find it for me. I don't know why they didn't know they had them in stock, but thanks for electronic inventory systems.

The bad news...it has the most awful backlit bleed! So I guess I'll be trying to exchange this one for a good one. So far this thing is pretty sweet.

Thanks for the target tip!

Just got a 32 gig AT&T 3G at target in grand forks north Dakota!

Online said they were out, called and they said they were out and only had 16gig wifi. So I went to look, sure enough they had the 32! So for sure calling isn't correct, neither is online (for some stores at least)

This is NOT leftover launch inventory. None of it showed at 10PM Tuesday evening but by midnight new inventory started showing up and continued to show in stores' inventory right through the night into the early and in some cases-- mid-morning.

Got myself 2 black 32 wifis here in fort Wayne, Indiana! Thank you target inventory checker! Looks like there is one more black 32 wifi in stock here in town at another target.

Target inventory system lag

I purchased only one in stock this morning and time elapsed between "limited avail." at purchase and "out of stock" was about 30-40 minutes in my case. Just a FYI. Good Luck all. Keep checking the system as it worked great for me.

There is no reason to assume that LIMITED AVAILABILITY signals the unit may be a return. I have seen NO evidence of this in any store I have been in. What is seems to mean is that there is ONE UNIT IN STOCK.

I have one store in my area that has multiple "limited availability" listings. I went, trying the lookup tricks, multiple staff looking and nothing, even checking returns. Finally, of all people, the Target security guy was the only one that knew what was going on. He said they only had five (each) since launch. They were all gone, he knows because he was in charge of tracking them security-wise. He said that not all inventories are "up-to-date", even 5 days out. He scanned the BLK 64mb shelf sticker and showed me another store close by had 6 of them, but when he called they did not. So luck seems to be the best way to get one it seems.

Back to the hunt!

sorry for off topic, but are you TTE from Spymac?

Were you looking tonight or earlier today? In my experience the few stores that had limited availability went through their inventory today by early afternoon. Most were gone by 11 am (~3 hours after store opening)

I don't know anything other than what I was told by the Target manager, who I just happened to encounter upon entering the store as they were opening this morning. She said that they've been selling out shortly after opening each morning when they have had them, so I was lucky to get the ones I did.

Yes, one and the same.

Yeah, it was earlier tonight but this particular Target I checked really hadn't received any more. I'm taking the guy at his word, he was nice and took extra time to help (which was weird being uniformed security) but I'm guessing the area is a higher crime area too.

Shipments Thursday morning?

Has anyone heard anything from their Target about whether they have been getting shipments daily or just Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays? I have read both things..I think a few Targets got shipments on Tuesday, based on the people in this thread who set up the links system, but I also read today that their electronics shipments are usually ~4 am on Mon/Wed/Fri

shipments of what? target gets shipments every day (expect sunday). whether or not ipads are on the truck is an unknown. and 4 am sounds about right for shipments.
