Maybe a dumb question, but does it come shrink-wrapped? I saw one today, but didn't buy it because it wasn't wrapped...just two pieces of tape holding the box shut.

Comes shrink wrapped. I would buy it, the used ones are still selling for $25-$60.

If anyone is near this store, the Mount Pleasant, PA Walmart has one left on the shelf. I saw it 40 minutes ago...

Picked up one more earlier today. The bidding on it is already up to about $29 and $26 on the one I got yesterday. Thanks for the tip DaveTaplin!

They were put on clearance at most Walmart and aren't that easily found. They were selling for $10 - $15 two weeks ago, so yes Christmas is driving it right now.

Stopped off at another Wal-Mart on my way home, and they had 2. Factory seal is partially torn on both, but going by some recent sales that isn't going to matter.

Thanks OP!

Your welcome, Merry Christmas.

I hadn't paid much attention it looks like the price came down pretty quick over the last few days.

I sold 12 New & 2 used for a total of $499.86
Cost for all 14 (including tax) was $109.20
Ebay fees about $76.16

Total profit was around $314. Too bad I make a living doing this so it wasn't really extra money for me.

My 2 auctions ended up at about $50 each. I'm pretty happy with it.
