My best deal would likely be the Sentai stuff from Deep Discount with 10% extra off or the Doctor Who BR sets for $20 each. Maybe it's getting all 3 seasons of CPM's Slayers sets for $22.

I had a better year selling than buying.

Best Buy $20 RZ Preorder Promo. I matched all the titles down to $40. Essentially, netting me $20 new release games.

My best deal though is...
Professor Layton 3DS - $6.25 upon release date. I got it at Target in the B2G1. I price matched Sears but they took off the too much. They even admitted it to me when they handed the cash back. They said what done is done.

Wow, lots of deals this year, here's my top 5:

1. Zoids Chaotic Century DVD set from a local pawn shop for $20 (11 discs) (probably my best find ever)
2. Turbo Grafx system for $2 at goodwill
3. 3ds xl from the same pawn shop as above for $70
4. Bought a gamecube store display kiosk from a local thrift store for $50 (missing the system and tv but still awesome!)
5. Earthbound SNES and strat guide for $10 at local game store (said it didn't work but after taking it home and cleaning it thouroughly it plays great and even saves!)

Nothing that great, Starfox 64 3DS for $9.97 at Sears and a new Cobalt Flux Dance Pad for around $300 with shipping on EBay. I know that doesn't sound like a good deal but Cobalt Flux went out of business last year and I have seen them sell for as much as $750 new, even a set of 2 used Cobalt Flux pads with a PS2 and some games sold for almost $1400 earlier this year. http://www.ebay.com/...k-/221067135941

Probably had my best find today. Moving sale (probably last one I'll get to this season), RROD 360 with all cables, no controller, 20 GB hard drive, 2 head sets, hdmi cable, extra charging cable and av cable. $5.00. Took 360 with one of the headsets and the HDD into gamestop, and after paying for refurb and controller, got $80 for what I traded. And the guy at the sale was discouraging me from buying it. And now I have backup headset, charging cable, and hdmi.

PS2 for $10
Dreamcast for $5. Didn't have a controller though. When I got home there were two games inside the disk tray. (Crazy Taxi and some surfing game) Both work pretty good.
Getting 2 Wii U games at TRU during that B1G1 40% off was cool since it was when it first came out.
