FamilyVideo.com has the new Paper Mario for the Wii at $44.99 (OOS)
http://shop.famvid.c...ducts_id=270351

Mario Party 8 - $44.99:
http://shop.famvid.c...ducts_id=267641

New Users to the website can use a -$5 coupon code: NEWGWMEM for orders of $5 or more. Shipping on all orders is $1!

So your total would be $40.99. Probably one of the best deals that doesn't include GCO.\\:D/

NOTE:
This product will be in stock and ready to ship on Tuesday 10 April, 2007.

Edit: Forgot to add what the coupon does.

Sweet deal. If I had a Wii I would definately buy this. I loved the N64 version and I'm sure this one will be awesome.

I'm tempted, but I'm going to pony up the extra $10 at retail so I don't have to wait for it to ship to my house. I simply need this game that badly.

Awesome, I've been looking for a non-GCO deal. I don't mind waiting a few days to save $12.

Thanks OP.

Wow that's a pretty good deal. Can I handle being without the game for x days? Probably, the semester is drawing to an end and I'll be gone the entire weekend after this game is out.

Thanks OP.

Just to make sure its clear that you can only use the code once per account. I tried to use it on two separate orders so I could get both chocobo tales and diamond for the prices fatbeer listed but it wouldn't work a second time.

Holy shit. Gonna pick this up. It's almost certain that the price will not go any lower than this for a few years knowing Nintendo. And I don't need it THAT badly so the cheap shipping is fine with me. If it sucks dick I can always sell it and recoup my costs. Thanks.

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

If you go to there Location site, you can see what States they are located. (Not in California, yay!)

Fuck!!! I just ordered it from CDUniverse yesterday with the $10 off $30. I could have saved 95 cents!!!!!!!!
:booty:
Actually I am a little sad about wasting the use of the coupon but whatever. Maybe I'll find something else at familyvideo.

Hmmm... I see they have Chocobo Tales for $26.99. Maybe I'll use the coupon to get that instead since I already preordered Super Paper Pario. The $5 off and no tax would still save me $4 + some change compared to Best Buy with GGC + tax.

Anyone else find any other good deals here?

I've done a search on this forum, and a lot of people have said they're very reliable, with a few saying they're a little slow. I guess its kind of a crapshoot, but with the odds in your favor. I'm still trying to decide if saving almost $15 is worth waiting a few days to play it (I'm guessing it is).

Is family video reliable?


Yes. They are not some small internet startup company that could fold tomorrow and take your money and CC data. They are a very large chain with brick and mortar stores spanning the Midwest. Their strength as a store is based on the fact that they truly are a store for the whole family and have things for everyone. Lots of kids movies (many of which are free rentals if rented at the same time as new release movies for mom and dad), large video game sections, large mainstream sections, and unlike most chains, most of their stores even have large "adult/XXX" sections in a seperate room. The only thing they really lack is a strong import section.

As far as their online store, the website is functional if not pretty. I've gotten in on two of these preorder specials Gears of War and Rainbow Six: Vegas and have been happy both times. However, their free (or in this case) $1 shipping is parcel post if I remember correctly. Since I live in the Midwest near there internet distribution point I've received both of my games within a day or two of the street date. (It was harder to tell with Gears which seemed to have no consistent street date between stores) HOWEVER, I have read many complaints from those on the left coast of 7-10 day shipping times. With parcel post you just never know.

I went ahead and ordered it. I was going to wait for Tuesday because they have that "in before 2pm or get a $20 gift card" at CC, but if they don't get it there, I'll still be able to get the gift card, and if it is there, Mario will just be taunting me on the cover.

No tax and $10 off is worth it. The game will still be the same even if you are playing it a few days later.

I didn't want to spend the full $50 on what is essentially a GameCube game (that isn't Zelda). SPM should be a GREAT game though. Like a classic Mario platformer, but with some crazy perspective-shifting gameplay thrown in, and your typical Paper Mario humor.

Thanks, OP.

I wanted to throw my hat in the ring. I live in the midwest, and my family (lol) has been using a B&M FV store for years now. I have no experience with their online segment, but I can attest that they are a legit company.

Family Video is very reliable..... I've ordered tons of games from them back when they have the $5 off ( Gears of War, castlevania, Final Fantasy IV ) and they've all arrived within 2 weeks.
