I really don't see how $3 off 2400 MSP is even slightly enticing.

Edit: Also as far as I know. No store received more than 3 copies.


Two workers independently (one was on the phone with a customer asking for a hold, other that I asked told me) mentioned that they got 5 copies.


The high-traffic one by me got 4 (I got #4).

There is a spend $50 get $5 back, if u are new to their club then they will give u a spend $35 get $5 back which might stack (not sure)

Personally I canceled my order bc played Pokemon demo and it was awful (IMHO obv), just gonna pick up Mario Kart & MBros2 used somewhere else.

Does anyone know if walmart would price match target on this for a mario kart bundle? My walmart has a few left, but I'm confused on if they would match target or if they would deny me, claiming it as a bundle or different product.

Anyone know where to get some cool looking decals/decorations for the 3DS? I've seen some really neat designs.

Would be nice to find some themed along some series I like (Super Robot Taisen, SMT, Ys..) but in general, good designs that go with the blue XL are nice.


I would love to find a clear decal of Gengar and put it on a purple 3DS.

I was first to get one at my Target and they had 4 of them which I saw together in person. So there were some places that got more, I wouldn't consider that Target the most high traffic one either since there is another one in town that is twice the size.

(i.e. Deal didnt work on preorders, even though release day falls within the deal dates)

So, I have a question about Wal-mart's ad / price match guarantee; hopefully someone with experience can help.

Let's say I buy the Pikachu XL online from Wal-Mart tonight (3/24), and print out the order invoice / receipt. In addition, I have a physical copy of a competitor's ad that has the XL at a lower price, but the ad lasts 3/24 - 3/30.

The thing with the online order is that both the "site to store" option says they will send it on 4/1. So that the ad price for the competitor is already expired, and thus WM will probably not honor it.

But again, I would have an invoice / receipt for 3/24 along with the physical ad from the competitor.

If I pick the XL up from WM on 4/1, do you guys think they'll honor the price match guarantee if I show them the original order date + competitor's ad?

No. My sister called them trying to do that and they said they won't price match online orders.

Btw, is $159.99 the cheapest XLs have ever gone for? I'm thinking about picking one up for my girlfriend's birthday, which is in 2 months. Not sure if I should get one now and save it til then or just wait and hope there's another sale in the next 2 months.

so far ,yes it is the cheapest it has been. If you are already dead set on getting a nintendo 3ds xl in 2 months. you should just buy it, and keep it sealed incase another price drop.

About as easy as putting on a screen protector...without having to worry about dust and bubbles. I thought it was fairly simple and the quality is pretty good as well. I prefer this decal over Decalgirl because I personally enjoy the original color of the 3DS xl and the full body decal/vinals cover it up entirely.

I read in another thread it's 7 days(?) to PM their own price. Last I had personally attempted it, it was only a couple weeks, and that was a couple years ago. 40 days is definitely out of the picture.

Does anyone know if walmart would price match target on this for a mario kart bundle? My walmart has a few left, but I'm confused on if they would match target or if they would deny me, claiming it as a bundle or different product.


WM will pricematch THE EXACT SAME ITEM ONLY. If Target's Mario Kart Bundle is exactly the same item & UPC as the one WM is selling, you're set. If it varies in anyway, or comes with extra accessories, or the game is actually sold separately but they're tossing it in (or you want WM to do that) when you buy the system, then no.

I managed to pm at Walmart for the Mario kart bundle. Had to go through 6 employees, all the way to the store manager on duty. Kept reminding them that it was the same price as the regular blue one, the Mario Kart bundle is discontinued, and it's not a physical bundle, just a game installed on the memory card.

It's worth a shot, bit be ready to be shot down.

Just a heads up for anyone in the Seattle area. The $159.99 3DS XL sale pricing does not apply to the City Target in downtown Seattle.

I went there this morning to buy one of the half dozen or so blue and red systems they had in stock but it rang up full price plus tax. I mentioned the sale price to the helpful associate and he explained that unfortunately their store goes by a different set of sales. This was evidenced even further by their weekly flyer which was different than the weekly which I received from my weekly local paper.

So close!
