Pathetic website. It seems shady that the deal of the day page works but the cart/account stuff doesn't?

It's weird. I had zero trouble with the site the other two or three times I was on it, but today it does seem like nothing is loading properly.

The cart problem seems to be fixed now.

Interesting. A 360 arcade for $60 + $5 shipping is up on my screen right now. Of course, I really want a refurb PS3 to show up for that same price.;)

I hope that their condition rating system is reliable - a DSi XL with a rating of 9 just popped up for me. Sadly, I had to pay tax on the purchase, and my wife is going to be mad with the impulse purchase.

No, just an 80GB PS3 for $99.

Whoa. A 60gb PS3 for $90 + $5 shipping just popped up for me. But it's only a rating of 5. I opened another page for chuckles and loaded the DOTD and it brought the same console up. Then I hit F5 and it brought up a slim 360 4gb for $100.:shock:

But with the 60gb PS3 listing it doesn't list a controller in the 'what's included' portion of the listing.:-s

It lists THIS:

What's in the box?
PS3 Ac Power Cord A/V Cable Warranty Seal

I bought a DSi XL rated 6 - what should I expect condition wise (asking previous cowboom customers)

DSi XL for $85 shipped. Rating was 5 though, not sure how accurate their rating system is. I think I am going to pass.

...and a 4GB 360 for $105 shipped. Pretty solid deal, again a 5.

I ordered a grade 5 Wii system last time they had this sale and it was in great condition. It almost looked brand new.

if you're worried about items disappearing, just add them to your cart and then read the description. I added and Xbox and it wasn't for about 15 minutes till i finally bought it and checked out fine.

Somewhere there's a landfill section filled with Pen Styluses in Midnight Blue, Bronze, and Red.

That doesn't always work. I've had stuff in my cart before, and then when I check out it would disappear.

It seems they may have fixed the cart, I finally got an order for a DSI XL placed. I picked up a PSP Go from them in great shape a while back, hopefully the DSI will be in as good of shape.

Sweet, managed to grab a 60GB PS3 for $103 with tax and shipping. Hopefully it comes in decent enough condition, was looking for a backup PS3 since my kids have basically hijacked mine.

*sigh*, it looks like all the DSi's are gone. All I get now are XLs and 3DSs.

Just added a dsi XL to my cart, but it says it won't come with an ac adapter or a stylus. What's the point of buying it then

Don't give up. I just now saw a white one up, still $50.

I bought a 6 DSi last week and it was near perfect condition. It came with all accessories, including box/manuals. The unit is almost flawless except the faintest scratches on the lower screen.

Finally did get the Pokemon DSi. First under was under review then the second went ok.

Still curious to see the quality. Does anyone know if you can return these at Best Buy if not satisfied?

There are a bunch of DSI's available on this page for $50.

Blue and Black limited though

I'm just waiting for a PS3 60gb to pop up again, I hope I get one.

i wouldn't mind grabbing a PS3 at a good price. I'm mainly an xbl gal but, it would be nice to play some of the exclusive games

Got one of the blue DSi XLs for $80, later realized it was missing the stylus. Not much of a loss, as a 6-pack is $6 (3 stylus, 3 pens), and I already use my own super-stylus (emptied mechanical pencil with the end nub melted down).

Unlike Amazon Warehouse Deals, they don't adjust the price based on what is missing. The Wiis are all $70, though a good chunk are missing the WiiMotes and Nunchucks. Many of the 3DS are missing the SD cards. Nearly all of the XLs are missing the pen stylus. The PSP Gos are almost all complete, but nobody seems to give a shit.
