Wouldn't some stores consider the bundle different than the base 3DS though? Like I said, my store would match, but I could see why others might not (though I wouldn't agree). I think the fact that it's a preloaded game makes me think that it should be matched, as opposed to a game packed in.


I thought he said it was the same SM3DL bundle. If it is, we'll always price match the exact product whether it's a "black friday bundle" or not. If it's two different systems and games then no, we wouldn't..Sorry for the confusion

While you are right that an employee discount would be far superior, most people get double reward zone points on gaming with the free Gamers Club at Besy Buy. If I understand the point structure correctly, this would amount to $5 in rewards, which is still much less.

On another note, I thought Target's employee discount was 10%?


It is 10%, I was grouping it with Redcards 5%. Sadly I may have a better chance getting the Mario bundle at Best Buy since I have some acquaintances there willing to PM most anything reasonable. It all depends what the Mario bundle is priced at Target though come Sunday.

I just know that my chances of getting it at Best Buy are much much higher which is why I even consider the option.

Ah yes, thanks for clearing up my confusion.

I have a feeling that the Mario bundle won't be marked down at Target. We'll see though.

B1G1 50% on ANY game? Christ. I hope they don't process orders same day/sunday, cause my billing cycle doesn't close until the 3rd. lol

I'm also hoping Amazon gets their head out of their ass and matches this. They haven't run anything worth a damn this year. They're apparently too busy running lightning deals on sardines and pens.

just to name a few things I got in the mail this week:
Borderlands 2
Lego Batman 2
Madden 13
FIFA 13
Forza Horizon
NBA 2k13

Yeah, Amazon doesn't run lightning deals on anything...:roll:

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.

:lol:

Anyways, B1G1 50% off is nice but they never lowered the price of the DMC HD Collection ($39.99!? :lol:) and I have no reason to buy any new games since I got the Gamefly $1 reactivate deal :D

and microsoft took a big shit on pretty much anything Amazon offered with that $10/game sale on half their bloody catalog. There's only one game on your list there I want and I'll wait until it's under $20 and probably has a GOTY edition.

yeah, microsoft store completely killed it this year. That was insane and out of the blue. They win.

However, amazon did fine on lightning deals despite your crying about them.

Well, amazon didn't run a BxGx this year, nobody's run a deal on RE6 Archives, so I'm annoyed.

yeah I think so, with this team your not stuck getting Epic Mickey 2 or Just Dance in order to get the 50 percent off, you can mix and match and get any game u want and save an additional 50 percent..I was going to get Scribblenauts Unlimited for the 39.99 but found out its sold out at Target..hopefully TRU will have it on sale

Realistically, do you guys think Call of Duty: Black Ops II will go on sale (or at least have some sort of offer) come Christmas time?

I have a gift card there and want to use it on Black Ops 2, it's the only game I couldn't get for cheap during Black Friday. (Minus the 20 Rebate from TigerDirect but that's for 360, I'm hoping to snag one for PS3)

I don't think it will be on sale before Christmas, but if my memory serves me correctly, most stores (especially Target) do some pretty decent after Christmas sales with games. After the new year though, you'll likely be screwed til March or so. That just seems to be the trend.

I was able to buy Epic Mickey 2 and SMB last week for $90 + tax, and then returned Epic Mickey 2 for $45 + tax as it stated on the receipt.

It was an easy way to get Super Mario for $45 + tax.

There still isn't a 2nd game on the Wii U that is worth buying for me or my daughter.

Dang it... I've been struggling to hold out for a "normal" 3DS XL color, but this deal might finally sucker me in.

Anyone have any experience with using one of those stick-on skins? I'm tempted to grab this deal then spend $5 on ebay for a "black carbon" colored skin

Updated 1st post with a lot of stuff.


10% off giftcard favorites: including Subway, Facebook Credit and Amazon Kindle. More in-store.

Is there any chance PSN and Xbox Live cards will qualify for this?

I know I could get the Kindle cards (which works just like a regular Amazon gift card), then buy funding codes on Amazon with them, but I'm expecting the Kindle cards to sell out fast.

I'm sorry for the confusion.

All I mean by "Black Friday Bundle" is that it was a special 3DS SKU that Nintendo released for the Black Friday weekend. It includes a copy of Super Mario 3D Land pre-installed on the SD card, similar to this weekend's 3DSXL bundle that includes a copy of Mario Kart 7.

It's the same price as the rest of the 3DSes normally ($169.99) I was just afraid that someone at my local Best Buy was going to say it doesn't qualify as a standard 3DS SKU.

My store has signs to put up for Aqua Blue and Flame Red. YMMV on getting the Red Mario bundle at the $129 price. This by no means implies only blue and red are "it".

Not trying to read too much into it, just trying to give a heads up.

It all depends on games. If there's games you want to play that are available on the 3DS, it's a worthwhile purchase. Otherwise, why would you buy one?
