I don't recall too many deals on Nintendo points either. I don't know about PSN as I don't have a PSP nor PS3, so haven't followed that. What I find comical (or not) is that Amazon has a price of $19.99 for Nintendo Points, but lists the original price as $24.99. What bullshit. $19.99 has always been the retail price.





yeah the price IS $20 so you aint saving jack-

they just want those who dont know (some parents) to think their saving $5--how gamestop of them

Other than the Wal-Mart clearance have Wii Points ever been on sale? Same for PSN, other than the odd, Meijer 10% off deal (which is quite limited to most not in range of a store), have they ever gone on sale?


I believe I have heard people have been successful buying at least wii points at bestbuy with the 10% off coupons (12% for silver members) that get mailed out every couple of months.

Whats funny is that if you read the reviews Amazon was selling the $20 card for the full $24.99 for awhile. So apparently they make their own retail price for wii points.

I guess they did that (sold at $24.99 for a short time) so that they could then list the original price as $24.99? Either way it's a pretty crappy move.

I know I've been able to get Nintendo Points from Fred Meyer when the 20% accessories comes around. I think I had in the past at TRU. Never seen a discount outside of the Target $19 Sunday ad for PSN money.

I still can't figure out how Sears gets away with selling the 1600 cards for $25.

Most people who are buying them as gifts have no idea what a Microsoft Point is or what it's worth.

I've gotta agree with the yay-sayers. This thread is much needed and much appreciated.

a little fyi to those that were all over the Micro Center sale with 3-month XBL cards for $7.99 and $9.99, they're back to full retail now. i saw one today a local MS, and they scan for $14.99...

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

I disagree. Most people don't check these big threads. I feel individual deals should be posted in the Deals forum, not lost in an enormous, over-arching thread.

I feel that it can go either way. If there is a deal thread on x, then people know where to go to post and find those deals. Individual threads can get lost pretty fast. On the other hand, if you have a huge deal thread on x, the terminally anal will complain that all deals about x must be posted in that huge thread.

Also true. There's no pleasing everybody.

Sorry, fixed that for you.

There's people that will complain about the large monolithic threads and CAGs that will complain about the individual threads.

As long as the deal is being posted somewhere, we benefit. The large threads can give you some good comparisons to pick from, which is a benefit.

I feel exactly the same way. If the thread isn't a sticky or wasn't started by someone with authority (like CheapyD), then deals should be posted without regard if there is a master thread or not.

And besides all of the retailer master threads sink into flipping threads which discourage people who only want to get their games cheap.

There is a deal on Ebay for 12 Month Xbox Live Gold Card Codes for $36. The code is emailed to you pretty quickly. Great price and a great guy to deal with. I bought 2. May not be the lowest price, but you get the codes right away. Enjoy!

having read this entire thread, i love the turn around time from this thread being a general consensus 'fuckING AWFUL IDEA' to everyone thinking it's one of the most necessary additions to the CAG forum in years.

for the record, i am of the opinion that this thread rules, even if they aren't on sale often. and i just might have to bite on the 12 month-er at walmart. thanks op!
