Tax kills it. Very tempted on the One though.

Thanks got an X1, free ship and no tax to NY. The site crashed literally as I made the order, but I got a confirmation email. I was on the fence about getting one but with GWG coming to the X1 this coming month, I caved, thanks again for forcing my hand asshole.

The only way BB would PM this is if a Fry's is considered a "local competitor" for someone, they won't PM the site. Or if you're one of those guys who successfully bullies your BB manager's into doing things way against policy.

I was wrong, proceed.

Hope this still is up when the site comes back. Been wanting to get an x1 and this will be a great price.

As long as it isn't a bundle you'll have zero problems price matching at bestbuy.

I stand corrected.

It hasn't always included Frys.com though, right? When that rolled out--along the same time as Target's--I thought for sure Fry's wasn't on the list.

Tax kills it. Very tempted on the One though.

If you spend a lot a year on sales tax and have other deductions, you can itemize it on your tax return instead of taking the standard deduction.

Available in store only. Oh well. Would have bit.

Edit: Xbox One is in store pickup only, not PS4.

Nice price on the X1. Basically paying $20 for a kinect.

 

Tempted on the PS4, but its only $20 off.. Probably would have been better off buying it last week for $399.99 since it came with Killzone as well.

The site is somewhat back up. It seemed to crash again after I submitted my One order but I did get an email and when I logged back in and looked at my order history it's there. Let's hope there are no problems.

 

$30 for a Kinect when I was going to buy it in a few weeks for $400 is great. Yes, I'm doing it so I can dl the free games. Why not take advantage of the gold I have on my 360 right now.

So is this going to be hard to get best buy to match since they have to put it in cart to see it?

Don't want to get your hopes up so YMMV, but usually when i price match Fry's through my phone, they add the item to the cart to make sure thats the price that shows up.

Tempted to get a ps4, free shipping and not tax.  Feel like the only game I'd play is infamous and by the time there are more games I'd want to play the system would be cheaper...

I can add either to the cart but when I go to the review order page, nothing is listed.

What do you mean by through your phone? Calling their cs line?

That means , the Best Buy rep will add the item to the cart on your phone's browser and verify that the deal is legit before price matching.

If you can get your hands on an address change Best Buy 10% off   item coupon, you could price match and use that bring it to Xbox One - $387  PS4 - $342  I did this when I bought my PS4 at full price and got it for $360

Correct. IMO it's silly to buy a PS4 now unless you want to play one of it's only three games, killzone, knack, or infamous.

I'm shocked, as any time an override is required from a manager, any coupons are void. The system won't allow any further discounts.

Yea, I'm really not interested in knack or killzone.  I am looking forward to future games but I'm probably going to wait for it to hit $350 with no tax

I had to open up my excel sheet of unplayed owned PS3 and 360 games on this deal. I am very tempted but I am still at 107 unplayed games...I can wait I can wait.
