    So they said they aren't selling them until tomorrow morning NOT tonight and there is no sale or rollback price. I was thinking of going through them to save 20 bucks or so oh well checked then off my list. :(

    Maybe any roll back price is online only? Walmart's online prices are often not the same in store.

    They are not allowed to sell them before November 1. When the iPad2 was launched, they were not allowed to sell them before 5 pm that day. I stopped by the store around 4:30 pm to see what they had in stock and the clerk had no idea - said the iPads were locked in the manager's office and would not be released until 5 pm.

    Can't imagine the Air will be sold at anything but Apple's price.

    Tomorrow morning starts at 12:01am. Hard to say what "morning" meant in the above answer.

    As to the rollback price... something is not adding up. There were lots of press releases earlier this week, and even a tweet that appeared to be from Walmart that said they were doing the $20 off. But, the link from that tweet goes to a press release about their trade in program - only.

    It is only $20. I'm buying at midnight tonight with or without the rollback price. If latter they advertise the $20 discount, then I'll go back and get the money credited back to my credit card.

    Walmart corporate tweeted the $479 price for base iPad Air. Clerk you spoke with either didn't get the memo or no memo circulated down to the checkout scanner level. 9to5Mac has posted pictures with the rollback price on the Airs. Likely the price will show up @ register tomorrow regardless. For now the price might still be $499 in the computer until WM starts selling them tomorrow.

    If I worked at Walmart, and praise God, I do not... I would give every customer a different answer when taking calls about Apple launches.

    For what it's worth, I know my local Walmart sells them at midnight on the dot. Not sure about rollback though.

    I went by my WalMart and the electronics manager said the registers wouldn't let them ring them up until 8am. Can some of you question and confirm the midnight sales quotes?

    I know that--no I told them if it'll be on sale after midnight today and was told not till the morning. I didn't ask about the base model perhaps the rollback price is only for those? I asked about the 32GB wifi Space Grey and was told it'll be $599.99.

    Something is not adding up here.

    ----------

    That's a possibility. Did the image grabs show a 32GB priced $579.99?

    Walmart has a no interest financing offer if you use their credit card. I believe this applies to purchases of $499 or more.

    Target offers 5% off if you use their Red Card. This is on top of any other offers.

    Let me help you guys out here........

    Obviously clerks have no idea what happens after their shift is over.

    I called every walmart in my town. One said they "PROBABLY" wouldn't start selling theirs till the afternoon.

    Another one said, "we have iPads already, let me check to see if I can ring it up and can come pick one up now if u want. I wanted to laugh in that guys face but he walked away to check so fast I didn't get a chance. He later came back and told me to come at midnight and they would be available to purchase. That's May or May not be true.

    Another one said they would be available for purchase at 8:am.

    The other one said their shipment would come in the morning and didn't know what time they would be available for purchase. #Respect

    And finally, the last one said they weren't selling them. Now that's weird to me because maybe their stock just hadn't come in yet maybe and like I said, store clerks have no clue what's supposed to happen on the shift after theirs and I promise they could care less.

    Do all walmart locations carry iPads? Or is it only certain stores?

    Two of the three Walmarts in my Midwest town have none, the third has 5 in the display case. I could only see one grey and one silver, the others were obscured. No idea what sizes and the mook behind the counter wouldn't open the case to check. Got to love that excellent walmart customer service.

    I'll go back when the shift changes.

    I have to admit your original comment did make me laugh though.
