Next week Kmart will be giving out a $40 Gaming Coupon( Valid 9/9/12 - 10/14/12) with the purchase of a Nintendo 3DS XL. If I am not mistaken, this has been the best deal so far on the XL from a major retailer.

Two other things on sale in the AD:

Save $10 on Just Dance Games( JD2 Kids, JD2, and JD3 for the Wii are pictured at $19.99, $29.99, and $29.99 respectively)

Save $10 on featured games. Halo Anniversary $29.99 and Gears of War 3 $19.99 for the XBOX 360 are pictured.

Also, Monday and Tuesday Only , Shop Your Way Rewards Members get a $5 Award Card( basically a Kmart Gift Card) when they spend $50 or more. This should stack with the 3DS XL deal, giving you $45 in extras/credit. However, the Award Card is only redeemable from 9/4 to 9/8

NOTE: In the AD, it DOES NOT say you have to be a Shop Your Way Rewards Member to get the coupon. In the past, all GC deals came under the condition that you were a SYWR member. I don't know if this is a new thing or a mistake. I'd recommend getting a free SYWR membership just in case, since it's free and takes literally 45 seconds to get.

Yup, these coupons no longer require SYWR membership. This started around 1 or 2 months ago.

Yeah, with this and the Best Buy B2G1 Free on 3DS Games, it looks like I may get one next week.

Thanks for the early ad, JP73.

It's really hard resisting getting a 3DS XL now. I *think* I could stand the color choices for basically a free game (although I'm guessing like other Kmart coupons you'd have to wait a week to use it and you'd need a filler to get over $40). My original plan was to wait till a Ouendan/Elite Beat Agents and/or Phoenix Wright game showed up in the US then it changed to see what BF/holiday deals popped.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Wow!! :shock: So next week is definitely the time to get an 3DS XL then.

So will the $40 coupon work for the Kirby Dream Collection at $39.99? Or will it work if I like throw in some cheap stylus pack to put it over $40?

Yeah, you gotta add something else( gaming related) to go over 40

Is there any recourse for those of us who only got a $20 gift coupon on launch week? As nice as it is for everyone else this kinda thing really bugs me... I already spent my coupon on kid Icarus if that matters.

You got use the unit 2-3 weeks longer than people buying it later, isn't that worth the extra $20 to you?

Yea I'm not so much mad as I am bothered that its happening less than a month later. I still got a great deal but it would be nice if it got even sweeter. I ask here because unless its a simple argument to make on my behalf I wouldn't bother ever trying to get the difference back from a Kmart employee.. they're not known to be terribly helpful.

Does anyone know if you have to actually go into a store to get the $40 coupon or can you just buy the system online?

Also, regardless of how you get the coupon, can the coupon be used online?

Thx.

if it was BB, then maybe. I wouldn't waste my time dealing with the kmart customer service desk.

OP didn't mention this but in the AD on the 3rd page, it says "Members get a $5 kmart award card when you spend $50 or more in store or online (offer valid 9/2 & 9/3)". Looking at the fine print it appears this can stack with the $40 gaming coupon. ;)

They really do, I only go for deals like this but its always an ordeal to get the merchandise and there's a depressing vibe throughout the rest of the store.

Thanks for pointing this out, I did miss it. I saw the XL on the front page and then went to the gaming section and didn't look at the rest of the add. I'll add it to the OP

$40 gaming coupon for purchasing 3DS XL and a $5 gift card for spending more than $50?! I have a feeling this won't stack, then again I could be wrong.

This deal is really tempting, but I don't know if I can manage to gather $200 plus tax in less than a week.

They have done these spend 50 get 5 deals several times in the past and last year they did stack with gaming coupon deals. The Award card is like a gift certificate that they give you at the register while the coupon prints with the receipt.

Pretty good deal

Just not enticing enough to upgrade from the OG 3ds. Maybe once they do the special branded versions

Yeah the old coupon deals were only good in-store, with the occasional exception where online would participate as well. But an online coupon deal could be used for a future online purchase and in-store coupon deal was only valid in-store. In other words NO criss-crossing. Another one of those things SHCgamer was trying to fix

I should be able to match this at my local Best Buy...and depending on which person I deal with, this could result in a $40 discount instead of a gift card...though with the B2G1 on 3DS games happening simultaneously, I can't say I'll mind either way...

Does K-Mart do preorders like Gamestop? As in, would it be possible to use the $5 gift card towards a preorder of Borderlands 2, and then use the $40 coupon when I pick it up?

Really, really tempting, but I'll prolly wait for a hopeful purple version. I'd really like it if Nintendo made that Majora's Mask 3DS that somebody made a while ago, but that's likely wishful thinking.
