How long are these coupons good for?


On the top of the promo page it says the codes are good until 2/25/13.

If I bite now then Nintendo announce a MH3G XL bundle later, does Newegg make returns easy?

30 days and I believe there is a restocking fee. However, I think it's different if you use Shoprunner.

Thanks! I'm gonna do the shoprunner free trial for the 2 day shipping anyways.

Thank you so much for the the find. Grabbing an extra XL and the Amazon Monster Hunter combo deal.

Amazon has a combo deal on MH?

I think he is referring to the save $20 if you pre-order both the Wii U and 3DS version of MH.

Ah, I see. That's not too bad of a deal!

So tempted to buy this. I've wanted to buy a 3ds for a while.

Waiting for a good bundle deal, as this deal has been rehashed a billion times already and I have yet to pull the trigger.

Not a fan of MK, so I didn't get that over the holiday. Besides, the current colors are ugly. (Hoping for an all Black)


This 100%. Nintendo should drop the price on the 3ds xl to $170 already to facilitate even more sales for Luigi's mansion and the pokemon spinoff. Would have bought a 3ds xl already @ this price but already have a 3ds which doesn't get played as much. Will wait till the holiday season or a $150 BIN console deal in the future. Also waiting for some new colors as well.

Fire Emblem with a black XL would be amazing.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

I'm still waiting for any 3DS that isn't two-tone. The MH black XL bundle in Europe looks great.

It really does. I'm pretty sure every other region has been confirmed for the MH XL bundle but North America. I want it sooo bad.

Tempted. I felt regret after passing on this price at Best Buy, but can't quite pull the trigger now.

What's the battery comparison between the original 3DS and the 3DS XL? Is it worth the upgrade?

Best buy won't price match this deal, and it's killing me cause I have $75 in reward certificates I need to use soon. Already bought Fire Emblem, just need the 3DS XL. If I can wait long enough I have another $50 Visa card rebate in the mail from bed bath and beyond and I'll be able to snag one for under $100. Crossing my fingers for another store to drop it to $169.99

I just bought one from Wal Mart on Sunday, bought one just now from Newegg so I can return it to Wal Mart when it gets here, and get my money back :P

I'd be all over a Monster Hunter 3DS XL. I already have a 3DS, so I don't want to upgrade unless it's a steal of a price (150) or a limited edition. That's why I'm hesitant to upgrade now.

Nintendo hates us :cry:


We'll probably get black much later down the line if we get it.

I'm tempted at such a low price, but I want a pink or some other color scheme that isn't an ugly two-tone. I can't stand how bad blue and red look with the black. What's wrong single-tone systems, NoA?

I'm really surprised how often I see comments like this about the 3DS XL. I like the Blue/Black and Red/Black colors, but am surprised there aren't more options.

Nice, but i'm not that brave. I'd rather settle for one of the thousands of skins that are out there.

Yeah, the pink/white one is the least ugly to me. If they had that one, I might have bitten.

Not newegg.

Best Buy will.

Best buy won't PM Newegg's deal because you need the coupon to get the discount. At least the two in my area would not do it, so YMMV. Lucky you if you can convince them.

Yeah YMMV, but I would think someone would have better luck if they show them the promo page rather than the product page. I'm going to give it a try even though I already have a XL.

Off topic question... Can I simply move my SD card to a new XL to retain downloaded games/content?

Damn! I bought one yesterday. I got it for $191 after tax from the Meijer 10% off for President's Day sale though. So I guess a $21 savings isn't that much. Still disappointing though. Should've waited.

I'd love to just buy one from newegg and return it to Meijer but Meijer has the S/N on the receipt. I doubt they'd take a different one back.

Return the one you got from Meijer to Meijer?

I opened it already. I think they'll only exchange for (defective) opened electronics.

Couldn't find anything in their return policy that said you could not return opened electronics. If it were a video game, then you could only exchange it, but that should not apply to consoles.
