Found next weeks flyer at BB today. the blue/black, red/black, and pink/white 3DS XL's will be on sale for $159.99 Dec 9th thru 15th. I tried to get the price matched today but the salesperson wouldnt go for it. so I paid the $200 and I'll go back and get the price match sunday.

I'd rather pay the $160, have a choice of colors and have a real copy of Mario Kart 7 than be the downloadable bundle it comes with. So this works out.

Is the XL with Mario Kart 7 included in this deal?

This is such a great deal, but must resist....I still have to beat my ambassador games and I'll never let my Zelda 3DS go.
My collection and trade-list:
H: The Legend Of Zelda: Hyrule Historia LE in Mint condition W: equal value in trades or amazon/eBay prices

Boo! Oh well, I have MK7 already, so I'll just wait until next week to get the XL for $160 instead of spending the $200 and getting a $20 gift card.

Tempting. Did you take a peek at any other deals?

Yeah I know, wish there was a way to transfer those games....

Is there a way to transfer those games? Definitely hit this deal if there was.

If only I didn't buy an XL with my GS credit, I would've jumped on this.

To save just $15 more, it might be worth it for me to return my Target red 3DS XL now that I got for $175.

At that price, I'll take the digital Mario Kart 7 bundle.

For what it's worth I definitely like my XL a lot more then the regular 3DS. Very happy I traded back when Gamestop raised TIV on 3DS.

Very tempting at this price. I want to upgrade but hate these lame colors. I would love an all white version like my old pal DS lite.

Sell/Trade List:
Guides: Metroid Zero Mission, Rogue Squadron, Eternal Darkness, F-Zero GX, SoulCalibur II (BradyGames)

I don't play my 3DS much, the screen is too small for me. Gives me a headache pretty quickly. I'm hoping the XL upgrade will fix that so I can finally play Kingdom Hearts!

I bought my 3DS XL on 11/14/12 for 179.99 at Best Buy. Will I be able to take my Receipt in and get a price adjustment. Or is that to long of time to lapse and they won't honor that. Either Way I can take this one back and rebuy at $159.99

Frriiicckkkk... I'm really tempted to get this deal... I feel like $160 is the cheapest it's going to be for a while... but decisions, decisions.

Trade List: Looking to trade a Flatout steam key :pc: and a Defense Grid: The Awakening steam key for... anything on steam! See what I already have at: http://steamcommunit.../games/?tab=all -- Just send me a PM!

That falls under the Holiday Price Match Guarantee, so you can definitely go to the store once this sale starts and get that $20+tax back.

This is a really, really tempting deal--I plan to upgrade to an XL, but I'm unsure if I should wait for better color options. I have plenty of BBY credit, so paying isn't an issue...but dang, I don't really see it being this price again until a price drop happens next year...maybe.

I wish the 3ds was on that list.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Would best buy do any sort of refund situation in my case? I got them to price match target a few weeks back for $175...

I was so close to buying the $199 XL bundle. I can easily wait one more week to pick this one up instead.

EDIT:

Dragon's Dogma for $29.99

Is that wishful thinking?

Yeah, I've had a 3DS at launch, but the XL is appealing for some reason. Of course, it's not something I need...
