Did Costco drop the price early in the US?

I plan to purchase a 3DS soon, preferably before the August 12th cutoff date. I know of the report on CAG where it was dropped in Canada last week.

$250 is too expensive for a system like this when it comes to a 15 year old who cannot legally be hired for a job.

I think the early price drop for Costco was Canada only.
My dragon egg is dead. Thanks guys. Also, blue cheese is evil and the creator should be flogged.

Nope, not in Ohio at least, I literally just got home from Costco.

Thanks for the replies. The price drop is supposed to be put into effect at Walmart on the 9th, but I just wanted to make sure if I could find it somewhere else just in case of a shortage of systems.

I highly doubt there's gonna a system shortage. If it does you could just go to another store and have it pricematched on the 9th,

There are rumors the price will drop on the 9th at walmart. If that is the case Best Buy will price match that day.
