Look at the receipt. What is this "10% Discount"? The "discount given" is 10% of the cost of the Mini.

Sounds like an employee or a friend of an employee. Bad.....

This. Hell, you can return a broken laptop and get a refund at Walmart, even if you dropped it in front of them. Lol.

The person that sold it to him probably had a Assistant Manager or Co-Manager/Manager override.

The point is, if you're going to the trouble of taking a picture of the receipt and posting it, why wouldn't you take a picture of the mini itself. OP has had his five minutes in the spotlight. Time to move on until pictures appear (which they probably will on Friday).

Was given a discount of $8.00. iPad mini costs $329. 10% of $329 is $32.90 not $8.

Which is why the receipt is a photoshop. I was looking at the discount in the first heading under the return of the Nexus 7 and the purchase of the iPad mini. In addition they didn't not give him the sales tax back from his Nexus 7 purchase. The whole thing is a fraud.

I'm with the doubters here but consider: maybe all he's got with him to take a picture is the iPad mini. It's hard to take a picture of the camera if it's the only camera you have with you. If he's in college, the box might be back at the dorm/apt. Maybe he's just playing with his new toy?

For many, a receipt of purchase is pretty strong evidence a purchase was made. You can get rebates, etc as long as you have a receipt. I usually tuck receipts in my wallet so it would be plausible that he might have that with him.

If he's still checking this thread and the above is the case, I suggest finding a mirror around somewhere and taking a picture of the reflection of the iPad Mini.

There are some unboxing photos from France in another thread http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1480127, so its not like every single Mini in the world is so locked down it would be impossible for someone to possess one today.

Why doesn't the mini have the size on it like the Nexus does? I call BS.

If he can take a picture of a receipt on earth wouldn't take a picture of the actual product. Who took the picture, who uploaded the picture the forum? He's a mac person, now you tell me, who doesn't have a smart phone that owns a mac?

Just did, they are selling "spots". The receipt you see here is nothing more than a placeholder in line.

Yes you paid for it (why, I have no idea), but they do not release it until Friday.

So says the Walmart at that location.

I don't own a smart phone but I have several Macs.

If he's only got the new mini with him, maybe he took a picture of the receipt with the mini. When I was a student, one goal was to not carry any more around with me than I absolutely needed. And if I got a new toy like a Mini, I would bring it along and leave other gear at home.

Still a doubter myself but I can imagine this scenario as fitting. If he's actually got one somehow (and it's the only camera he has on him), he needs to find a mirror and take a photo of it. Or borrow someone else's camera and take a few photos.

Of course, if I was him and was called "troll", etc over and over, I might take a picture of something else and upload it instead.

So stand in front of a mirror and take a picture with the Mini that includes the Mini.

He does not have it yet.

They change it too often... I thought that it was back to 17.5% for some reason! Oops!

So I guess now some guy making minimum wage at Wal-Mart is going to get fired and maybe Apple will re-think letting Wal-Mart in on opening day sales.

Congrats to the OP if you really got this. But next time don't throw the guys who helped you under the bus. Posting the receipt with all that detail has exposed them and Apple doesn't take kindly to that.

I don't think Apple really cares at this point. It's not that serious.
