I only see a grade 4 which says it has significant scuffs/scratches and no memory card.

I'd buy another one even though I said I wouldn't but not if it's missing stuff.

There's also a $5 off $50 coupon, I think.

I wasn't getting mad like the forum police around here just letting you know. You can see that most people from that thread are content with what they receive.

There's...

COWBOOM5 = $5 off $50
COWBOOM10 = $10 off $150
COWBOOM20 = $20 off $300

The catch, though, is that it only works for new customers (which I'm assuming just means an account that's never placed an order).

Got one. At first I thought this was a scam site but from all of the responses in this thread and a little search on google, I just went with it. Funny thing is, I went to the Sony Store today and grabbed some vita games on the 75% clearance to save until I got a cheap vita. Guess that time came faster than I thought.

Only see 4s and 5s. Probably not worth it.

I usually don't see them above 6 anyways, and most of them have alot of stuff bundled with it. I think it's worth it, especially at $130.

DO. NOT. buy one without a memory card! It's measly but still better than nothing and SONY has them overpriced by 200% all the time

Try cowboomer.com to see what's available. Bestbuy and Amazon have the 32gb memory card on sale for $75.00 or you can get a 16GB used for about $30-$40.

Alternatively, you can traded in or sell the game to help bring down the cost of a memory card. Also, I would highly recommend getting a PS+ subscription.

While I realize that a lot of people seem to sing praises of cowboom, there's the flip side of the story, too. I've ordered multiple items from them. In my experience, minor scratches and blemishes mean that it looks like someone skipped it across a parking lot. I've never received anything with a scratched screen, but everything I'm ordered from them has, cosmetically, looked like crap.

I know, for me personally, I'll never order anything from them under a 7-8 rating. Because what I've ordered before at a 6 has been unacceptable.

Cowboomer shows you the inventory for their flash deals. If the item is sold out then there is nothing to see. Hence why you see a blank page.

Ok... maybe I'm missing the point. In fact, I'm sure I'm missing the point. Why would you use cowboomer.com?

Ahh, having never seen it have anything at all, I didn't realize it presented a cherry-picking format.

Going to hold out a little longer since it won't be long until you can buy the thing new at that price.

I ordered a grade 5 Vita 2 weeks ago, and while there are some minor scratches on it, you can't notice them while playing a game.

And yes - if it doesn't say it comes with a memroy card, don't bet on it coming with one.

I still only paid $200 with the Vita and 32 gig memory card though, so not a terrible deal since I can finally take advantage of some of the PS+ games.

No one has commented on the game that comes with this deal. Black Ops Declassified is not as bad as many of the reviews would lead you to believe. If you like COD, it might hold your interest for a little while - especially if you are looking for multiplayer FPS on a handheld. The biggest problem I have had is just getting into matches (it can have very long wait times for some reason). The game is mediocre at best, but does have some value when evaluating this deal.
