Complete Online Inventory Links - WalMart, Bestbuy, Target
Hello fellow iPad hunters,
I feel like I might be eliminating my competitive advantage here, but I'll just hope some good karma comes my way instead. Out of frustration at the removal/absence of an online availability check for BestBuy/Walmart, I decided to do some...creative browsing. The Target links were sourced from an earlier post, and credit for those goes to the OP, mo0620.
No matter what these links say, it's a good idea to call ahead and try to confirm the readings. However, I would not necessarily trust the employees in-store or over the phone, especially if they don't actually look before answering you. Bring the item sku with you and politely ask them to check, as this has resulted in success and surprised employees in some cases.
I give you...The List!
Updated daily in the early AM, during which time it switches "Available" or "Unavailable" to simply "In Store Only." After a short time the system restores with the updated numbers for that day. Checking later in the day may result in inaccurate numbers.
16GB AT&T Black
32GB AT&T Black
64GB AT&T Black
16GB AT&T White
32GB AT&T White
64GB AT&T White
16GB Verizon White
32GB Verizon White
64GB Verizon White
16GB Verizon Black
32GB Verizon Black
64GB Verizon Black
16GB Wi-Fi White
32GB Wi-Fi White
64GB Wi-Fi White
16GB Wi-Fi Black
32GB Wi-Fi Black
64GB Wi-Fi Black
The WalMart system updates once daily at 12AM E.T., so checking later in the day may result in inaccurate numbers.
Target inventory seems to update much more frequently. It may even be a live system, but I haven't had confirmation of this yet.

People using the Best Buy searches should remember that many BBs are doing reservations, so even if it shows them in stock they might all be spoken for. Probably worth a phone call before you drive to one - or better yet, get on the list, the $100 deposit is fully refundable so no loss if you find one elsewhere first.

Anyone know of a way to check online what the inventory is at your local walmart? Seems the website is only showing mail orders or site to store.
Mac Mini (Mid 2011) 2.3Ghz Core i5/8GB/512GB Crucial m4 SSD + 500GB HD w/HP ZR24w LCD
15" Retina MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) 2.6Ghz Core i7/16GB/500GB
iPhone 5S 16GB Space Gray / iPad 3 64GB black Wi-Fi

ALL the BB's show them in stock. The AT&T 3G models. I wonder if they just got a shipment in this evening or if they are all reserved models? Maybe it's worth checking out in the morning.

All I can say is that it wasn't doing this an hour ago. It was simply saying "Unavailable" for any searches that I conducted. However, an hour ago was 12AM Eastern Standard Time. Could this indicate an inventory system update?
On second thought, there's no bloody way...unless the reason that Apple stores have had such tight supply is because every single BestBuy now has complete stock...which is the most unlikely thing I've ever heard.

Either it's totally wrong or every BB got a massive shipment of all models late today. Every BB in my area and at my home in SC has them in stock. Maybe I'll call in the morning to see what's up.

From what I can tell looking at the page source from the Walmart links, the openFindInStore() function just ends up calling the openSlapOverlay() function.
The same results can be achieved by typing in:
function openSlapOverlay(itemId, zipCode, selectedVariantId)
itemId we've already figured out, zipCode is obvious. From what I've been able to tell looking at the page source, the selectedVariantId is actually the itemId of the specific variant of the item you're looking for. I've tried numerous times to get it to spit out anything other than the 16GB models (which in the page source are set as the default option), but I have not had any luck.
This should spit out info on the Black Verizon 64GB model, but it doesn't:

go to Apple iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G (AT&T, Black)
To check for 64GB,

^ That works for the 64GB Black Verizon. You just need to input the product ID# for the first and last value, then change the middle number to your zip code.
I have updated the OP with this information. A big thanks to both PointNarf and Kennethinvest.
