Starting at 10pm every night, you are permitted to select "Pick up in the store" for the iPad Mini. Last night was the first night, and I tried at both 10pm CT and 10pm PT, neither of which showed any availability in the 10 Houston area stores. (BGR said that is was 10pm local time, but the iPhone 5 was 10pm pacific time - that's why I tried both.) Did anyone have successfully reserve one last night? What time did it update? I'll be trying again tonight. For the iPhone 5 it was helpful to have a thread to talk with other people trying the same thing, that's why I started this one.
