I work at Microcenter (I don't want to say which store(s)) and they are getting these cards from Blockbusters that can't sell them. Random side not if you need a Xbox they have refurbs for $149.99. They are 20 gigs with a headset and controller + a 90 day warrenty.

+1. Well played. I say that with all respect to katzd2007, as there is a 50/50 shot he works at my local MicroCenter.

Heh, that is true, at least he left the guessing at a 50/50 ratio. :)

I bought two of the cards for $12.99 over the weekend, it looks like there's a lot of Blockbuster inventory that's now at Micro Center stores, it's not just the point cards. I think the 3-month Live cards, some other accessory bundle packs, and likely more, all came from there. I'm guessing this also has to do with the fact that the whole Gamerush thing didn't take off?

When I was at the Columbus store on Sunday, they still had some of these in stock. Either they have a TON of them, or even at $12.99 the point cards don't have the allure they once did.

When was this? When I went last Sunday (the 15th) they said they were all out.

Just left the St Davids, PA Location. They have a ton of 3 month cards for $9.99, there are 2 3 Month Starter packs for $12.99. (I grabbed one) There are no points cards left. The clerk said he's not expecting more at that price, but he's not sure.


I grabbed a half-dozen of the 1600 MS Points cards last Saturday. Sorry about that, but they make for great Christmas presents to my nephews.

i don't know if anyone on Long Island still needs any 1600 point cards, but the MC in Westbury had some 1600 point cards in stock when i was there yesterday. i picked up a handful yesterday afternoon, and there were at least a dozen or so in stock when i left...

Just go for it... it's only $330... you can't even buy a decent hooker with that kind of cash anymore.

There were still quite a few 1600 ($12.99) and 4000 ($39.99) points cards left at the Brentwood, MO Micro Center as of last night. Picked up one 1600 card and will probably go back for at least one more. The guy at the checkout was trying to sell me on the 4000 pointers. :D

Thanks, I'll have to check that out! They were OOS last week so it's nice to know they keep getting new shipments.

Has anyone checked the Chicago stores lately? I had written down the item numbers and phone numbers of the stores, but I lost them.

If anyone can still get the cheap 3mo BUNDLES, PM me with how many you can get, and how much you're looking to sell them for!

The Houston location is exactly like this as well. The guy told me they got wipped out on Black Friday. He had no clue when they would restock. It's sad that this long after that day and they still haven't restocked.

Wow, already? They had BOATLOADs of them last time I was in there. Think they will get more?

MSU, what did u think of Micro Center?, I kind of liked the store. I also miss Comp USA so that's probably why.

I didn't ask about the point cards, but from what I'm reading here the flow of cheap cards from Blockbuster and/or Game Crazy is probably slowing down.

Yes I did like the store as it's a much more upscale Comp USA and it was very nice, just wish there was one closer to South County. I also picked up a HDD for my PS3 (been needing to upgrade for a long time) and Girls of Gaming Vol. 7 magazine, and got judged by the cashier for it. :oops:
