Buy.com has an amazing deal on a XBOX360 (Black) Wireless controller. The budget shipping makes it free, so your saying almost $20.00. I already bought 5 (limits 5 per customer), so I suggest you all grab some too!

Just a word of caution, I ordered the limited edition red controller from them and they shipped it in a padded mailer bag. Needless to say there was some crush damage to the package but luckily the controller works fine.

The 360 controller can take a TON of abuse. Your drywall cannot.

Lesson learned.

Good deal considering you can trade your old one at Gamestop for $19.25 + 10% bump if you have an Edge card. Upgrade to crispy new sticks for $10.

Be careful with the black controller though! Once you go black...... :)

I would argue that the 360 controller is actually one of the weakest controllers I've ever used. Not to say Street Fighter IV frustrates me! ha.. ha.. /nervous look

At least compared to Sony's and Nintendo's controllers, I have never had a broken controller issue. And I beat Devil May Cry 1/3!

With that in mind, I bought one! Thanks a ton OP.

I believe they match the email you use to their database in order to qualify for that extra 5% offer.

When I calculated it all out, I saved only $2 off from amazon after matching shipping speed (free shipping is a solid two weeks, versus 3-5 days for me for amazon's fsss, plus I'd have to ship to a relative in the continental US to qualify with Buy.com). The taxes and shipping null most of the deal for me. Oh wells.

They're legit (as in they won't take your money and run away), but I can't fault anyone for thinking otherwise. They have a real bad habit of not honoring price mistakes (obvious or not) and supposedly terrible customer service.

I've had nothing but positive experiences with Buy, but they do seem to be quite iffy at times when it comes to shipping and customer service. Nonetheless, I would never let Reseller Ratings throw me off. The people who take time to write up the reviews are those that had a bad experience. Most people who have had positive experiences with a company aren't going to take the time to write a review.

Anyone know if this is today only?

And where does this company ship from? I ordered an MP3 player form them before and got it in the same week, but I forgot where it came from. Maybe I live close to them, never had a problem before.

The free shipping is great if you live in Southern California because I think there's a distribution center somewhere around here. I've gotten everything I've ordered in the past from them within 2-3 business days.

They also have the wired controller for $29.99 - are there better deals on wired controllers elsewhere, or do they have the best price?

Same, too good of a deal especially with the $2 coupon eBay gave me. I thought this would be hotter, but I guess that everyone who needs an extra controller already bought one by now :roll:
