    Saw (and bought 2!) wifi only Xooms at Walmart online yesterday for $499. With pickup at the store, there's no shipping charge; just applicable sales tax. Important safety tip, however: If you walk into the store, their price is still $599.

    Amazon's picked up on this and now has the wifi only tablet for $499 and free (super saving) shipping; and no tax.

    Didn't check any other places, but just thought I'd pass it on if you hadn't seen it yet.

    [edit: quick search shows pretty much across the board the price is $499 for wifi only)

    Update: $50 off coupon for Staples B&M makes it $450. Wonder if Wallyworld will match that?

    And as of today, the 3G version is $599 at VZW, with contract, of course.
    (That may have always been so - I didn't look at the 3G version)

    I just purchased one from WalMart and they matched the Staples price. I took the coupon in with me. I just showed it to them and that was it. They did not even keep the coupon. :)
    I would go back and ask for the Staples coupon price.

    Yep! I picked one up today from Woot. Should go well with the Epic 4g, and brings me one step closer to Google owning my life. If only Google can replace my Macbook pro

    Nope, they wouldn't match. I returned them and walked across the street to Staples and bought 2 new ones!

    The 3G/Eventually 4G XOOM is now $599.99 full retail at Verizon wireless. While I love my 3G Xoom I am a bit irritated that it's now $200 less. I was perfectly happy paying an early adopters fee and didn't mind at the time that I had to wait for 4G. I didn't mind that I would have to wait 2 to 3 months and also liked that I would be getting updates first. But here it is 6 months later and still no 4G or SD card support and the wifi Xoom has 3.2 and the Verizon version doesn't. It's time to call Moto and demand a refund for the Xoom and Verizon to demand a refund for the data charges. As far as I am concerned there amnisty period has run out. It really is a shame because I really do prefer the Xoom to all the other tablets out.

    My wifi Xoom doesn't even have 3.2 as I am in Canada. This is starting to get really frustrating.

    I did an "Open Box Special" at Staples for $449 - $100 coupon net $349!!!!. The manager said they have had a bunch of returns as people thought these would be laptop replacements and from a word processing/spreadsheet perspective it's not there yet. I believe the coupon expires in Saturday.

    How did you find out about the open box xooms? I was planning on buying one tomorrow or Saturday and would be fine with an open box for $50 off plus the coupon.

    There should be an additional tag next to the price offering 10% off on open box items. If that tag is there I believe it means they are available.

    I think it would be if the price drops further. People love bargains. We can see this from sale of Touchpad a couple days ago.

    WAS Sr.. NetworkEngineer, then 16th Special Operat
    Fort Walton Beach, FL
    I found one listed on "Google Products" (Search for "Xoom tablets") for $269.00 (the
    Google listing said "$329 Online", but they also list one at Elektronic Mart (new) for
    $269.

    Is this real? Or could it be a fake? If it's real, I'll be buying it really soon.....but if
    it's a fake, I don't want it, obviously.....
