SCORE... went back 3rd weekend in a row and finally manager on duty approved $999 for an open box 4311ci ($999 out the door, no tax in Oregon).
Got the Audyssey A409 mic, zone remote, manual, power cord & antenna but they did not have the box or main remote (which can be had for $50 online).
** Update: Went to another local BB/Mag and they had the 4311/3311 main remote (RC-1145) but no 4311/3311 anywhere in the store so when I explained that I had purchased a unit without the main remote they gave me the RC-1145.
Pretty happy with that deal but just as everything else in consumer electronics I'll probably see one for hundreds less within the next year.
Best of luck guys!
