Would this include the $200 Mario Kart 7 bundle as well or does Best Buy not sell that bundle?

I only see the regular 3DS XLs listed, not the bundles, at least online. I wish there were some other color choices. I am not crazy about the red or blue. Not that I have the money for this right now either way. But a good find, OP.

You could always try your luck at a store, though it's a gamble since the bundle isn't on their website anymore.

I don't suppose anyone happens to know the SKU for the Mario Kart 7 bundle...?

This. I was looking for the AC3: Liberation Vita Bundle and it's no longer on the BB website. My local store manager was able to find it for me and had it brought in.

Not saying all store managers will do this, but just an example that even though it's not on the site, does not necessarily mean it's not in store.

I saw this price on Sunday and it made the decision of Vita vs. 3DS XL even more difficult. In the end, I had to go with the game type/library *I* wanted more.

I think I might pick one of these up and sell my launch 3DS. I'd like that bigger screen. Plus, I have a card that will give me 3x reward zone points for any one purchase.

It's a great gaming machine! I recommend everyone to get one; I've had one since almost one month since launch (and then upgraded to an XL) and it's worth it. Don't go for the OG 3DS anymore, the battery, general build, and screens in the XL are way better.

Great games I'd recommend include:
Virtue's Last Reward (if you played 999)
Kid Icarus: Uprising
Mario Kart 7
Super Mario 3D Land
Resident Evil: Revelations
Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask

I have that same card, but since I have my Pitch-In Card, which has more than enough credit to cover the cost, I think the 3x card will go unused. :cry:

I mean, my choices are either (a) buy the XL with my Pitch-In Card or (b) buy the XL with my credit card and the 3x card to get 510 RZ points = $10 in certificates.

Do you guys think this will last until Friday? It's actually a great deal since I had to pick up a 3DS XL for my little brother. At least this way I can pick him up a good game too.

Unless it is tagged as a two day sale it should run until close of the business hours on Saturday

What card gives you 3x reward zone?

Anybody need $170 in Gamestop credit? I've been waiting for a 3DS XL sale at GS that is apparently never going to come. This would be a great deal for me if somebody had BB credit (or cash) they wanted to part with...

Typical Best Buy. I ordered a 3DS XL last week at $179.99. I called today to get it price matched to $169.99. I had a really hard time understanding the lady she had a deep raspy voice but we managed to get through the price match part of the conversation.

I should have gotten a credit of $10 + tax ($.50) back to my MasterCard and I just received an e-mail stating:

A credit in the amount of $30.00 has been applied to the order you placed on 01/25/2013. You are receiving this credit because of a price difference.

I really really like Best Buy as a company but sometimes they shoot themselves in the foot.

Lowest I came across at BB was $159.99.
It's kind of BS that the Pink one is still at $199 - been waiting for that one to be in store so I can exchange my blue for the pink. Weak Sauce!!!

Ugh, I just bought a 3DS from Amazon the other day. I'd return it and buy from BB, but I used a ton of Amazon credit, so it's not really worth it. Great deal, though. This is the cheapest we've seen the 3DS so far, no?

How did you manage to buy a 3DS from Amazon? From a 3rd party seller? And you can use AZ credit on orders place on Amazon that aren't sold by Amazon?

Yeah, you can use Amazon credit on anything Amazon sells on their site, no matter who the actual seller is.

If you bring in a physical ad the store is more than usually happy to work with you. I've pm'd dozens of games from Best Buy ads after I bought them from WalMart.

Has anyone ever done a license transfer at a BB store? I'm selling my PS3 tomorrow and maybe I'll trade my original 3ds and buy an XL if I can transfer my license right there. It seems like they would frown on it though.

Best Buy had it for $160 before Christmas. Some were able to price match it to Target and get a $20 gift card on top of that. This price included the Mario Kart 7 bundle.

You may have a tough time finding a pink one in-store. They are not a "regular" color for the 3DS XLs. Limited production run.

Our area has been completely sold out for the last few weeks and there is no word on a restock.

What's best buys price match policy?

If i buy the 3ds xl this week and then they have another sale for cheaper. How long can i do price adjustments on it for?

Also will they do a price adjustment/match?

Say 3 weeks from now target has it for $159.99 but best buy doesn't. Can i take my receipt in and have them match the $159.99 price from target or will they only price adjustment from their own sales?
