12 month XBL cards are selling at ~$45 on eBay right now. Even at this price point there's no sense on flipping once you factor in tax, fees, shipping, time, effort etc. It will just net you a profit of a buck or two.
You might even incur a loss. Since the the price will definitely drop some more once eBay gets saturated of these by baffoons keeping on undercutting each other by a penny lol. :D


Not to mention the risk is completely on the seller. If a dishonest buyer purchases one of these from you and simply says it did not work, you are out your $. All he has to do is send you back the card with delivery confirmation and Paypal will give him his $ back from your account while your stuck with a scratched off used Xbox Live card.

Will the $5 coupon that came in the mail work with the XBL card?

...or they assume (probably correctly) that no one has a flux capacitor. ;)

Either way, please don't mistake me for defending these lameass deals, however.


I'm there with you. These deals are just ass not cheap. Yet someone with low patience, or no bestbuy, or uniformed, or our favorite person to bag on, soccer moms, will go to target and buy these games. Target isn't going to stop having videogame "sales" just because somewhere else has done better.

I don't play my 360 anymore but I'm tempted to pick up a Live card just so I can keep watching Netflix for a year.


Dude put all that XBL sub money toward a PS3, it has a better Netflix app.

why would you flip xbox live 12 month cards? just about all the time some kind of retailer is selling them for 35-40 bucks. It's not like they are never this cheap.

Whatever you are smoking must of fried your brain. The PS3 App is way cleaner, and less cluttered

1. GUI on the PS3 netflix app is superior.
2. Some titles allow for 5.1 audio and subtitles (360 doesn't do this)
3. Movies buffer and begin playing much faster on the ps3 compared to the 360.


Most importantly--> the simple fact you don't have to PAY to use a service you are already paying for.

People paying to use services they are already paying for is Asinine :-#.

no way, you actually save time , I'm happy I ordered one. you also save gas, and you don't have to go to the store, and end up buying more things you don't even need.

I like earning the RZ points. My local employees let me reuse the 3x RZ points coupon during the whole promotion period too.

You're right that going in for gas and what not can be costly but my local BB is next door to my gym so I don't really go out of my way whenever I pop on by. Not to mention just supporting local B&M is good for retail anyhow.

Now playing:

It was 2 for $50 in-store only on Saturday.


Actually it was $50 in store all week (sunday thru saturday). It just wasn't "discovered" (posted about) till saturday, which was the last day of the sale.

I know because I got madden and fifa wiiU right when the store opened on sunday the first day of the sale. Not trying to be a snob, just correcting your post!

Anyone else get a "$35 savings code" in the snail mail?

This isn't RZ, it says it is part of my holiday bonus offer that came with my new Best Buy card. I've had this same card for years now, makes me worry that someone opened a new card under my name. I better check to see if that happened..... after I spend this $35.

Did you spend over $250 during the holiday season using your BB credit card?

If yes, that's the reason why you got that $35 cert. Also, when they say "new Best Buy card", it doesn't necessarily mean a newly approved application. It also refers to long time card holders who got a new card to replace the old one.

Yours is a bit strange though as I got my cert via email and that's what the fine print said in the promo.

i have been paying for xbox live since it came out in 02 i have no issues with it. As a person that has all systems out i just think xbox live is far better product then playstation network has ever been and wii u interface is not that great. I don't mind paying 40 bucks a year which i pay with sales like this for a overall better service. 40 bucks is nothing it's like a day of work for a year of usage

it's all about what you like i have used both before and with the recent update to live this past fall and with kinect it's head over heals then the ps3 version of the app but nothing to fight over. plus i use my game systems for gaming mostly if i want netflix and youtube and other things i just use the apps that are on my tv for that stuff.

Yeah, I put a remote start on my truck in late November. I don't have a printer and my cell phone is from 2007, so I haven't used a RZ certificate since you've had to print them. Probably explains why it was sent in the mail, to make sure I come in to spend some money.

If used in conjunction with the upgrade and save promotion, I could potentially get 7 free blurays.
