FWIW, I think they use the shipping/billing address to check, I could not get the coupon code to work even with a new CC until I changed the address I used.

Well I chatted with customer Service and they told me that the code would only work after 24hr. of my new account.I ended up asking them what am I supposed to do if its out of stock tomorrow and they ended up giving some random response that had nothing to do with my question and I just told them "alright I guess I wont order it then" and the person gave me a $10 off promo code. Now I guess I wont have to worry about tomorrow.

There CS is a joke and reply with wrong answers... They used to rock in support.

I just tested doing an order again and the $0.99 "3DS game selector" definitely works as a filler item. The $10 off still works too by just creating another account.

To those having problems:

1. Make sure it's a new account (i.e. an account that hasn't ordered from Newegg before).
2. Add the Xbox Essentials Pack
3. Add the $0.99 3DS game selector (http://www.newegg.co....82E16878501041)
4. Enter "NEWCUSTOMER" promo code.
5. The $10 discount will NOT show up in the Order List and Sub Total section, rather will appear on top of the Grand Total near the bottom of the page as:

Remove NEWCUSTOMER Discount From Promo Code -$10.00



I only went in for one when I originally posted this deal. But just for kicks, I tried ordering again. And this time I even tried multiple quantities and it still went in!
Now I have 3 Essential Packs with Doom 3 on my way LOL! I figured I can easily sell off everything except the wireless controllers for around the price I paid, so I'll basically be getting 3 XBOX wireless controllers for FREE. Not bad at all. ;)

With your new account, try changing your address just a bit.

For example, if the address on your old account has abbreviations like "St", "Rd", "Rte" etc., spell it out completely on the new account i.e. Street, Road, Route etc.

Heres a nice little tip about the media remote.... During gameplay and such you can use the media remote to control your music without having to bring up the guide menu everytime. Once you start your music via the guide menu simply use the forward/rewind or play/pause button to control the music and change tracks and such. Been doing it like that since the system released and its great.

I was able to get the coupon to work simply by adding a second period to the street abbreviation, "Ct.." instead of "Ct."

In for one - thanks, OP!

16.50 this week at BB (50% bonus + 10% GCU).

22.00 next week IF the TIV holds when they switch back to 100% (+ 10% GCU) -- it's like getting the Pack for only ~$19! :D

I grabbed one without the code, still a great deal. So what are the chances newegg refunds me a little on the essentials pack that I just paid more for three days ago?

Well, I'm tempted. I want the game, I would like a media remote, you could never have enough XBL and I could probably sell the controller. However, do I want to drop $50. Hmmm...


Same here. I already have 4 controllers, $41 minus what I can get for the controller might be worth it.

I contacted customer service via chat. They refunded me $8 dollars.

Thanks OP ordered one. I have 3 controllers, but only 1 of them is wireless, and it'll probably need to be replaced at some points. I'm not into 1st person shooters so I'll trade the game to offset my cost a bit. Not sure if I want more xbl time. I guess I can trade that and the remote with someone.

You and me both, buddy. Except for this deal, there seems to be an abundance of good deals for PS3 and a disturbing dearth of good deals for Xbox 360 lately. Maybe I bought the wrong console on Black Friday. I just wish I had the money while the deal was still good. I really needed a second controller and this deal was too good to pass up, but the depressing state of my wallet prevented me from getting it.
Wii U!?! I don't think you could possibly give a game console a worse name!!!

incase anyone is wondering HDMI either works or it doesn't, so if you already have an HDMI cable with your xbox there is no reason to switch it out they are the same.

HDMI works at 100% or doesn't work at all (0%) there is no in between.

Just ordered one for $41. They called and asked me to tell her what was in my order and what kind of payment I used. I told her and she said my purchase was complete. Found it strange. Order went through so im happy I will finally have my own second controller and media remote. I usually just keep one wireless controller and replace it as they break. Gone through two in six years. By the way thanks for posting the deal!
