Well, they didn’t last quickly. In our “BestBuy Is Selling HP TouchPads For Cheap” article we reported on BestBuy having a fire sale on their HP TouchPads. Well BestBuy has updated their HP TouchPad FAQ’s as of 8:14PM CST on 8/21/11, stating that they are completely sold out of HP TouchPads both in store and online. We had a feeling that this was coming after they posted that due to limited availability some of the orders for them on BestBuy.com have been canceled, and that they do not expect any more stock. They posted that at 11:25AM CST on 8/21/11. They sold out very quickly, with in a day they were gone. This goes to show you that many products sell better, once the companies have decided to discontinue them. Be sure to let us know if you are one of the lucky few, who were able to get the HP TouchPad for super cheap. We will let you know if by some miracle that more HP TouchPads come in stock. You can see BestBuy’s fully updated (as to when this post was made) HP TouchPad FAQ’s. More info as it comes.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I purchase a HP TouchPad at a Best Buy store or on BestBuy.com?
Yes. Best Buy stores will be selling their remaining inventory of the HP TouchPad at the discounted clearance pricing effective immediately. BestBuy.com is currently sold out of both TouchPad models. (Update 8:14pm CST 08/21/11: We are sold out of the HP TouchPad both in store and online and will not be receiving more inventory.)
If I purchase a HP TouchPad at the discounted clearance pricing, can I return or exchange it?

If I purchase or have purchased a HP TouchPad at Best Buy at the clearance pricing do I have a manufacturer’s warranty?
Yes. Customers purchasing a TouchPad at clearance pricing will have a one-year manufacturer’s warranty, fulfilled directly through HP not Best Buy.
If I previously purchase a HP TouchPad at a higher price can I receive a price match?
Yes. Customers who purchased the 16 or 32 GB TouchPad after June 19, 2011 may come into the store to get a refund of the difference between the price they paid and the clearance price. If this item was purchased on BestBuy.com, please call BestBuy.com support at 888BestBuy (888-237-8289) for the price match request.

Yes. Customers who purchased the 16 or 32 GB TouchPad after June 19, 2011 may come into the store to get a full refund within our return policy.
If my BestBuy.com order is canceled, how will I receive my refund?
If the order was completed and your form of payment was charged, the refund will be in the same form as your purchase. Refunds will be credited first to the original purchasing credit card or PayPal account, and then to any gift card or Pitch In Card that was used. If you don’t have the gift card, call us at 888BestBuy (888-237-8289) to request a new one. If you don’t have your Pitch In Card, you’ll need to request a replacement card online.
I have an open funds authorization on my credit card, but my order was canceled; when will this be removed?
The timeframe can vary depending on your financial institution.
Purchase quantities are strictly limited. Limit one (1) per customer. Best Buy cannot guarantee availability of inventory at this pricing at any particular Best Buy location or channel.
All HP TouchPads sold at or price matched to the discounted clearance pricing are final sales and may not be returned/exchanged for any reason.
