Ugh, I just bought that Mario Kart 7 bundle for my mother, she definitely would have enjoyed Nintendogs too. Steel Diver, meh.

Any one know if they would allow me to "upgrade" to this offer, I literally bought the system a week ago. I would out right return it, but I have all my content transferred over to the new one already.

Just for the record, even though the weekly ad seems to suggest that the free nintendogs and Steel Diver ONLY come with the MK7 bundle, their web page allows you to add them to ANY 3DS hardware for free! Just add the two games to the cart with the hardware and you will see the discount.

I just bought the purple 3DS for $139.99 and got Steel Diver and nintendogs (which I will sell for more savIngs) for free!

So tempted to get Dead or Alive 5. Has it been cheaper anywhere else?

i dont think it has been cheaper anywhere. i have been waiting for it to drop below $20. maybe gamefly will have it as part of their end of year sale.

I picked up a 3DS XL with my warranty replacement for my 3DS, paid the 10 dollar difference. Then picked up the uDraw as an Christmas gift for my 5 year old. $9.99? For two games? Even if he hates it, I didn't lose very much on it really...

Have to decide if I'll hit the BB Vita deal this week or wait and hope somewhere else like GS where I have credit has a post-Christmas deal.


Anyone think there will be a Vita deal? Kind of feel like BB might be the best option because the gift card would let me get a 16 GB or 32 GB stick which would be more expensive than two games (I want P4 and VLR).

I got mine a week ago today. I wonder the same thing.

Is there any recommended games for the uDraw? My daughter is really young but think this would be good for when she is older.

Is it wrong that I'm assuming since GS is having a sale on Dragons Dogma for $29.99 other stores, like BB with the $20 coupon, will have one soon also?

Not sure if ur silver but u would come out better by pm'ing this @ BB since pm is extended till 1/24 for all customers & hoping for a deal during the after x-mas sales. My current strategy has been to buy on Weds. using the 2X RZ point(3X pts + 25% bonus) promo and pm in the future but still have the RZ points bump in effect.

I have a tough decision. Halo 4 or Borderlands 2.

Going forward u might want to look into doing the BB $20 RZ promos for top titles since getting games for free or just tax is tough to beat & makes decisions like yours much easier.

Is there any chance the 3DS XL will go any lower in the next 2 months or so? I ask because I just picked up the new Layton game but if I can get the 3DS XL for > 150$ then that would be fantastic

sales will continue thru mid Feb. so I'd say follow the above strategy to earn some extra pts + still maintain price protection going forward.

Memory cards prices can be had for 20% on perm basis here's the link

i am in the same boat. i have $360-something in credit and it will be used for a Wii U, but I'd like to see a 'bundle' or something. (by the way, i only spent $58 to get that $360 thanks to the recent promo)

Hopefully the 100% trade in offer comes back once the 50% one ends on 12/25, u might wanna think about turning that $360 into $700ish prior to complete depleting ur credit reserve.

Isn't that MSRP?


Sorry. I meant I was wondering if anybody knew how much broken PS3 would run for when you trade them into GameStop. I know I could call the store, but my location never tell you prices over the phone and want you to come to the store. And I'm not lugging my Phat around. It's heavy.

GS's general policy is to not give out TIVs over the phone. I've heard the blurb dozens of times while I've been in store overhearing some of the phone TIV requests.

So you might need to lug in your PS3 if you really want to know the TIV.

I didn't know that was actually their policy. I use to do so before, but staff has changed. Well I guess if I'm near one I'll ask.
