Thanks Niccci!!! Will keep trying I have been in and out of the computer room and keep refreshing, but if I have to I will leave it on 24-7 and even check it in the middle of the night when the dogs want out...lol...:yup:

For those of you that have gotten the Smart Cycle or those that plan to, I have heard that they really eat the D batteries. I was able to get a charger (charges 8 AA's or AAA's, or 4 C's D's or 9 volts) for 19.27 and 6 NiMH Rechargeable D batteries for 21.65. But right now amazon has $10 off of a Rayovac purchase of 39 or more and it qualifies for free shipping. So my total was 30.92 (well I had gift cards, but that is what the actual total would be). I know it sounds pricey to start with, but my DS will be using it a lot I am sure and it will be passed down to DD as well, so all in all it is a good investment. I have 3 AA/AAA chargers, but none that charge D's. I thought some of you might benefit from this as well.

Just curious when it was out of stock before did it say:
We're sorry, this item is no longer available. and have Image Coming Soon for the picture? I've filled my shopping cart with items to take my total to 75 just to be ready. Also, does the OCT20 code end tonight? TIA!

I'll keep checking and my fingers crossed then. I have seen the title of this post for a couple of days now and never checked it since I didn't know what it was. Then I was walking through TRU today and saw it set up. It looks awesome. My 2 and 4 year old would love it!

My eyes are going cross from refreshing this so much (it brings back Walmart and TMX Elmo flashbacks from last year!). Hope they wait until the morning to put them back up so I don't miss it!

We already have a regular battery charger, and in fact, we have some spare D batteries that came out of a crib aquarium that we changed to the crib rainforest thing that takes Cs instead of Ds, so at least we'll have a use for them now! I'm hoping in the future that maybe they'll come out with an AC adapter!

Yes,that is what it said to me too for a long time. I dont know when the OCT20 ends... you would think OCT20 hahaha but I used it today (and by the way,I didnt use a Kohls credit card either and it still gave me the discount!)

Ok..this has officially turned into a sickness with me! I've sat here and stared/refreshed for the past 2.5hrs waiting on this....I've offically lost my mind. I'll give it to midnight and then I'll have to give it a rest for a few hours.

That's $10 in Kohl's cash, and it only qualifies if you used your Kohl's card...I figure, I got 20% off, and didn't put it on my Kohl's card, so I still got $10 off that I wasn't expecting to get!

Yes, and here at work my computer and internet are much faster than at home. Let me tell you I was panicking until I got that confirmation screen!! Now let's hope it comes. And to think that I didn't even know what this was until a couple of days ago and now it became my obsession. I think I need to leae work now and rest, I am spent.

BTW, my cubicle mate quite literally just bowed at my feet!!

I just placed an order for the Dora and Spongebob Games to go with it too. Kills me to pay for extra shipping but a good deal nonetheless. Oh and I forgot I used the October20 code for an extra 20% on both orders (no Kohl's card here) and it worked!!!

Today? I have a card and it wouldn't work - I have to call them anyway since my total was 80 and it charged me shipping. I was in too much of a hurry to order it then fix it.

It was today that I used the code. I was wondering if I placed another order and the total of all 3 came to $75 or more before shipping and I called customer service and asked them to combine the orders for free shipping would they do it?

You could try, but I seriously doubt they'd do it. Good luck though!!

I'm going to either go blind from staring at the screen or go crazy from refreshing so much! But hey...at least its in my cart now...I'm one step closer!!

What about the games..... I was so tied up with getting the actual system, I didn't even think about the games... Now when I go to Kohls (they are the cheapest) they are all sold out... I had the Barbie game in my cart, and when I hit refresh one time it was gone... now it is all sold out!!!! HOW CRAPPY!!!! Hopefully I will be able to get them for the $13 not $20-$27!!!!!

It's fun though in a weird kind of way. I'm glad I got one and two of the games for my daughter, but I wouldn't mind getting another one for my niece so I'm still playing the refresh game.
