What's best buys price match policy?

If i buy the 3ds xl this week and then they have another sale for cheaper. How long can i do price adjustments on it for?

Also will they do a price adjustment/match?

Say 3 weeks from now target has it for $159.99 but best buy doesn't. Can i take my receipt in and have them match the $159.99 price from target or will they only price adjustment from their own sales?


I think it is 30 days, 60 days if you are Reward Zone Silver.

Already have a 3DS, but I do want this. I just don't want to go through the hassle of having to eBay my current system.

Plus, the colors...

Damn, I really want to buy one now, lol! Especially for Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Argh!

What are some other good games for the 3DS? I really want one but I don't see justifying the purchase just for one game.

Etrian Odyssey IV is coming out soon. That and Fire Emblem are the 2 titles that are starting to make me think about getting one. But not sure I could go back to carrying all my carts around when I go on a trip.

I'm going to return a 3DS XL Mario Kart bundle back to BBY soon don't know when, if anybody in the Inland Empire is interested in getting it let me know.

Nothing wrong with the the system, I just happened to score a new 3DS XL for $60 and don't need it anymore.

Is this price in store as well? I just picked one up on sale last week for $179.99. It would be nice if I could get the $10 refunded back.

You can always go in and price match it. They'd be more than happy to.

Also, is this worth picking up now? I'm eyeing a MK7 bundle at my local BB, but I'm hesitant because I fear of a price drop in the near future.

Wasn't this cheaper before? Why would we buy it at 10 dollars extra?

They did have a sale that was cheaper in December but that doesn't mean people took advantage of it. I'm sure it will get a price drop later in 2013, probably around holiday time but it's still a good price for anyone who wants to pick up up right now.

I have a ten dollar Reward Zone bucks, it will cover the taxes... lol Maybe I can swing this, otherwise I'll have to wait and hope for a new deal this month.
Ok then, knuckle up.

This is the cheapest I believe, other than the BF $180 with $20 GC IIRC. They bought theirs last week for $180, this week's sale was advertised. It's been around all week, but this is the first thread I've seen for the sale.

If you can wait, there is no reason to get one now. Of course it will drop in price the longer you hold off. :)

Nope, it was $10 cheaper ($159.99) last month for about a week.

That's when I picked up mine with a PM @ Target.

What card gives you 3x reward zone?


I got something from Best Buy last week. It had a bonus $5 reward certificate and a 3x card. Only silver premier members got it I think. Don't ask me how I became a silver premier reward zone member. I honestly don't spend that much money at Best Buy.

Both cards expire this weekend. I spent the $5 Monday on a $7 Blu-ray, because I didn't want it to go to waste. Wish I'd known about this 3DS. I would have put the $5 towards it.

I think I'll go pick one up tomorrow.

Just be sure to check your rewardzone afterwards. For some reason my 3X did not apply to my Vita purchase so I need to call them up. It shows they applied it on the receipt, but the point value I earned is not 3X.

Forgot about Animal Crossing, Gamestop says May 1st or something but I think its just a placeholder date. AC should be out by the end of the year though. This system is really picking up steam, especially because there are a ton of releases of heavy hitter games between now and June.

Decent deal, but I'd suggest holding off on buying this thing until you can purchase a $39.99 game alongside it for the same MSRP as the 3DSXL on it's own (or less).

If it hasn't been mentioned before, sears are clearancing out the Flame Red 3DS, I managed to snag one today for 99.97 at the Natick MA store. As much as I like the bigger screen of the XL, I like saving money even more

When did this start? Is it nationwide? I already own a Red 3DS but I'm tempted to pick up a second one as a collectible since they're no longer produced.

It's a great gaming machine! I recommend everyone to get one; I've had one since almost one month since launch (and then upgraded to an XL) and it's worth it. Don't go for the OG 3DS anymore, the battery, general build, and screens in the XL are way better.

Great games I'd recommend include:
Virtue's Last Reward (if you played 999)
Kid Icarus: Uprising
Mario Kart 7
Super Mario 3D Land
Resident Evil: Revelations
Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask



Revelations coming to all consoles (including Wii U) and PC...no reason to get it for the small screen 3ds XL.
