My grade 7 ps3 mw3 bundle for $150 came with a sealed game but a busted bluray drive. Looked like the system was dropped. They wouldn't send a replacement. Only a refund once they receive it back. I was not impressed with costumer service. Not using cowboom again. More of a hassle than its worth in savings.


Really just b/c they wouldn't send you a replacement. You could easily say that it's broken and get another console for free. That's why they won't send you another one. They have to make sure the system is actually broken and than you buy another one which they will price match the price.

I disagree.

That's 2 weeks of them having my money with no benefit to me and having to go to the ups store to drop it off. The ps3 was clearly not inspected as it looked bashed open from underneath. No way this should've been shipped to me. They could charge me for the replacement if I don't return the old one, they have my cc info.

Not worth the hassle of dealing with that again.

Yeah, that's not how things work.

Anybody have comments re: their protection plan, or should I go with Squaretrade? Think I'm gonna try to snag a ps3 since my last two died. Definitely getting an extended warranty as my last ps3 died at the 13 month mark (slim).

edit: Nevermind, apparently Squaretrade's used warranty is only for eBay purchases. Guess it's Cowboom warranty.

Might try and snag a PS3 since my current one is a 60gb and I want that one to last as long as possible for playing PS2 games on.

Sooo I would totally throw an ACVita Bundle back at Amazon for a used one under 150

I hate how all the real deals are coming out of the woodwork suddenly

Not really sale related. Just thought I'd let everyone know that Cowboom has begun selling 3DS XLs. The one I saw was $170, but the odds of snagging a cheap one are pretty high if you keep your eyes open.

Managed to grab a $32 3DS a few days ago. I was surprised it was still available when I clicked on it. Came out to about $40 after tax and shipping. I'll update when I get it with a pic or something, hopefully it works...

Anyone have any experience with the extended warranty?

I put a 250GB Super Slim BF bundle on Layway at Wal-Mart for $230, the issue is I already own all 4 of the games it comes with. All together they'll trade in about $27 at BB. So it's about $200. (Wish I could have put them on layway at BF!) I'd usually be OK with this but the system was either returned or at the least open box, the box was fairly ripped and the system was out of place, so I'm worried that potentially some of the codes could have been used or something. Didn't really get to check it out before they took it back.

With Cowboom I can get a 320GB Madden Bundle for $185 + 20 for the 1 year plan and - 10 for the coupon for $195.. Madden 13 trades in at about $30 so it's $165..

The big question for me is the warranty, if it's a pain in the ass it doesn't seem worth it to save $35 or so, but it's got a bigger HD, the seemingly better regular slim vs super.

TLDR - Cowboom 320GB Slim for $165 (with 1yr service plan) vs 250GB Super Slim for $200...

Yup, the one in the original post.

Edit - I think I'm just gonna go with the Super Slim unless something pops up tomorrow or something. I wonder how the extended warranty deals with the Madden game is it's traded in, I can see them trying to deduct $60 from it if I don't have it or something, most of the third party warranty services are kind of eh.
