(edit: sale over!)

Why did you use a GBASP for this topic's icon?

And we can't copy/paste the URL because it's truncated.

I didn't notice the 3DS icon before.

OK updated with full length URL.

Thanks OP in for one ! :bouncy:

Can't go wrong for $23.99 and free shipping. The TIV should not be too far off this price if it truly sucks.

Thanks OP. Even with tax this was the best deal so far. I bit. The place is about 15 miles from where I live, kills me that it will take ~2 weeks to arrive but i'll accept 40% off a brand new mario game. Used price won't be this good for 3 years.

Has anyone actually bought from them? They have EXTREMELY bad reviews: http://www.resellerr...e/Deep_Discount

There's a very good chance none of these will go through. Which scares me, because now they have my CC info.

Doesn't matter as I used Paypal. The biggest bitch about them is slow shipping. And if they cancel my order I used paypal so i'll get my money back. :bouncy:

Most CC companies have fraud protection. You can also request a new card but do that after you get your money back.

Thanks OP. I was going to wait for a B2G1 Free sale somewhere to get this but $23.99 is even better than that. Placed an order, hopefully it shows up.

In the past I have ordered from them and not had a problem, but that was several years back. I don't know if they've changed for the worse or not.

Was just about to pull the trigger and backed off. This is too good to be true IMHO. I'm not taking the chance on it.

I got this for $20 and I would ignore the terrible troll who said this game is boring. It's easily the best of the NSMB series. Of course Nintendo is clearly re-hashing at this point, it's still a fun game at this price.

Hell I enjoy it more than 3D Land if that means anything.

OT: what's that GIF about? Is that a giant spider? :bouncy:

You have to go to their mainpage and search Super Mario Bros 2 and then it shows up !

Link is not in this one, it's a Mario game.

I placed an order and used Paypal so I hope I am good on my end. How would this game be for someone who has never played a New Super Mario Bros. game?

Price changed to $37.99 for me during checkout. They must've killed it (or there is some weird bug in the checkout. Either way I'm not going ahead with it :/

Nice, this is about the max I was willing to spend for this game (nice that DD has no tax/shipping). I don't care that they take forever to ship, I've got enough games in my backlog to hold me over.

EDIT: Wow, good thing I got in on this deal in the last 10 minutes, I just made it.

Ditto. Lame. :(

Looking dead to me too. At least if it doesn't go through other items on my order might.

For what it's worth, I've ordered from Deep Discount before, they ship from the Chicago area, iirc, and I never had an issue with them. I usually bought $80 tv boxsets from them when they were retailing at $180 at Amazon. Always came fast and legit.

I'm bummed I missed out on this deal, but ah well.

Yes, and regardless, you'll be fine. I don't think Deep Discount is actually intentionally shady - they're just very poorly managed with mediocre (terrible?) customer service.

Welp, my order status is now backordered. So I guess that's probably that. Though I don't see how it's possible, since the game is still available at 37.99. Cancellation incoming?

It was probably a price mistake to begin with.

I'm going to email their CS and see if they plan to honor it. If not i'll request a PayPal refund. I wonder if the SD crowd piled on and they didn't want to absorb mass losses? :bouncy:

EDIT: I just sent them an email asking if they plan on honoring the sale price. I'll update when I get a response.
