now that's a smoking deal!
The Transformer is already a pretty great deal in the world of Android tablets – you get the same 10.1" screen and dual core processor as its competitors, for the low price of just $399.99. But if that price point isn’t enough to get you to rush out and buy one, or you’d like some extra cash for that keyboard dock, you’re in luck – you can get it from Target for a cool $40 off by using the code TCA27BAR at checkout.
The only problem is, the tablet isn’t exactly available – it’s still on backorder, so Target warns that it will begin shipping "in 2 to 4 weeks." Of course, shipping will set you back another $7.95, and you’ll still be paying taxes, so chances are you either won’t be saving too much off the original $400 price, or you’ll be paying more, whereas with Amazon you could forego both those additional costs. Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t have any in stock yet either (in fact, it’s powered by Target as well), so the Target deal is probably the best one around at the moment.
Bonus: another 5% off by using the REDcard, if you’ve got one.

I can see them getting a huge backlog of back-orders with this deal.
i'm putting my order in when i get home unless you guys think that is unwise for any particular reason.
Not really unwise. Just check their policy on cancelling orders. You may find one somewhere else before they start fulfilling all of the backorders. If you are not in any kind of hurry and will wait I say go for it. It is a pretty sweet deal. I am hoping Wal-Mart gets them soon. We get a 10% off there so the price would be the same as this deal.
I ordered mine yesterday after reading about the deal on Android Central. My order said 3-6 weeks for delivery. Keep in mind they do charge shipping ($7 to Florida IIRC) and tax if there are Target stores in your state. Mine came out $389 shipped. Hopefully, mine gets to me before I leave for two weeks in Israel in early June. It would really suck to land in Ben Gurion, check my email, and see that my Transformer had finally shipped <sad>.

that is a nice deal at that price you can get the transformer and official case for 400 total plus shipping and tax.
i can't find the docking station on the site. I really want to get both together.
May have to wait for the dock I heard they only made 1/3 so they will really need to pump up production to get them out how ever they should have them around the same time the tabs get released
