Accursed Play Gauntlet Not Available?

Has anybody found this bundle at a Walmart this year? I haven't found it at any Walmart that I've driven to or the several that I searched online. I checked the list of stores that KingsIsle posted on their blog last summer, but none of those stores show the card being available online. I also saw somebody mention that they were told by a Walmart employee that the card is not available at any Walmart in the US, shown below.
Why is this bundle nowhere to be found?

"After an hour long phone call with WalMart, we were informed there are no accursed bundles in Walmart's US inventory. If an arm and a leg is more your style there is a $60 accursed bundle on ebay with the small shipping cost of $16 available."

Just be patient I have the same issue , this bundle will be online to buy on KI's website later this year as with all bundles that have been phased out before.

Yeah. I know the feeling. Finding new bundles, even housing gauntlet bundles, can be challenging, even to grab one in stores.

Wish we had indicators to know which bundles are in stock and aren't yet.

I work in the electronics dept at Walmart, the cards don't show up in inventory because they are stocked/maintained by an outside vendor. Even if you have a KI card in hand and scan it with a store handheld, it will say "Item not found". You have to get the list of stores and call each one and get someone to go check the rack.

When the Fantastic Voyage came out, I started calling stores and the closest one that actually had it was Bullhead City, AZ - about a 340 mile round trip for 3 cards.

Your post has very important and valuable information to wizards in the USA looking for these bundles and also for KI's sales via Walmart. I wish there was a way to get this heard by everyone because it's massively helpful and could help improve the instore sales of bundles and help wizards find them more effectively.

@sparck is there a way to help publicise this info?

I think it's generally known that you have to kind of search n' find for these. If only we could get a better list for everyone :(.

Wal Marts in the Springfield MO area no longer seem to carry ANY Wizard cards, not even the 5,000 crowns cards.
