Not sure if this was already posted but not a bad price since Paper Mario is bundled with . However, I've heard some pretty bad stories regarding Groupon shipping but wanted to let people know that its out there:

should be a third party refurbishing company otherwise nintendo would be selling them directly

That's what I thought which is why I doubt the listing where it says "manufacturer refurbished". I was hoping someone would know for sure. I do know Nintendo has refurbished systems on their website.

yea the same Cosmo black is $110 right now from nintendo refurbished authentically. It don't have the game but considering this the worst mario game there is it can usually be found cheap anyhow

I had a terrible experience with groupon and I would never order from them again. I can't recommend ordering from them.

 

I wonder if these are Nintendo refurb's though, because it says manufacturer refurb and comes with a one year warranty...

 

I haven't had a good experience with Nintendo refurbs either, though a lot of others have, but I wouldn't order directly again from them.

I bought one. A Red one. I'll let you know how it goes. Hopefully it's not a pile of junk..


It says "Free Returns" So if it's a pile of crap, maybe i'll just order one from Nintendo. I got 2 sets of WMPs + Numchucks from them a while back and they work perfectly and look new.

I remember snagging this deal from Kohl's for $80. Paper Mario is pretty fun though.

Mine came today finally.

It's refurbished, but a lot of the material is written in Spanish. On the back of the system it has a small label in spanish reading something like "Rebuilt for Nintendo of America" and some other stuff I don't understand.


Paper Mario was new sealed. It even came with a 2GB memory card, sealed instructions/AR cards and the official Nintendo refurbished 3DS box.

System looks and feels new too.

Will post pics in a little

Based on this video, my box matches the one this person purchased from Nintendo Themselves

That's awesome. Good to know you didn't get ripped off!

 

Now I wish some factory refurbed 3DS XLs would be put up, especially one of the Zelda systems.

Glad to hear it, breakingcustoms. I notice Groupon repeats deals a lot (they had Blacklist on there twice, at two different price points, at the same time), so I'll keep this in mind next time.

Be warned that Groupon has terrible customer service (many reports of rude, condescending reps) and they often refuse to accept returns, despite their site "guarantee". You're better off just getting refurbs like this from Nintendo directly. Groupon goods has a horrible rep on resellerratings and sitejabber, just look it up.
