#11611924 The Official Craigslist Finds Thread Vol. 2

Posted by jbroush99 on 15 March 2014 - 12:52 AM

Wow, some kid is really going to miss his 3DS after today!  There was an ad posted for a 3DS for $40 and the ad stated

that it powered up and the wifi worked, it just wouldn't play games.  I checked later and they had lowered the price to $25.

We did a little research at work and figured if the game slot/drive was bad, I could get one for $12 and my coworker

would handle the disassembly and soldering. 


I countered with $10 mentioning what it would cost me to fix it and get a charging cord (which wasn't included).  They countered

at $15.  I told them I would take it for $15 if it still had some charge left and I could see that it worked.  Their reply was

"OK, $10".  I was more than happy to set up a time to meet and picked it up.


I got back in my car to look at it and the screens were dirty, but not scratched up and the stylus was still in the slot.  I hit

the power button and it fired up!  Nothing great gamewise on it, but it was working.  When I got home, I grabbed a 

game and threw it in.  Unbelievably, it worked without hesitation. 


All I need a charger and I have a perfectly working 3DS for $10!!!  She looked pretty ragged so she may have been

looking for a quick buck, but I really don't care now.

At this point I just want those ancient reviews to disappear from the front page.  They make it look like a time warp.

Exactly!  July of 2013 was a little more than a few weeks ago.  That stuff makes the site look piss-poor.

Sorry this didn't go over as well as you had hoped.  Happy Birthday anyway!

Yay!  UPS shows that mine is out for delivery for today.  Hopefully the driver brings it to my work like I asked him to.

Finally won tonight and have 39 points left over!  I'll need to thank the dozens of people both at work and work related companies that saved me caps, boxes, and bags.  Got through this on about $80 extra out of pocket.
