Good deal. MS might have to do better then $399 for a kinect less console if retailers have the flexibility with Sony to do bundles like this

Very tempted. How does the 60 back work? I imagine I could sell the game for around 40

they are like Kmart SYWR Points or Best Buy Reward points which can be used on future orders. so you would essentially have $60 to use at a later date from buy.com . points usually available within 15 days of when the item ship more infor can be found here http://support.rakut...-super-points™?

Thanks for listing the states. I'm in MN so that adds an extra $30 and is probably the deal breaker for me.

The "Super Points" must expire. I know I have bought from buy before and had a point balance of around $10 and it's all gone. Not a big deal----I'll be sure to buy a game or something once these post but just a heads up. I'm spoiled because of my membership level at BB and Kmart it takes over a year for points/certs to expire from there

Thanks OP.  I couldn't hold out anymore, I ordered one.

 

I'm surprised this thread isn't getting more traction.  The $370 ebay deal had a few pages worth of comments.

 

EDIT: Oh the no taxes here in Utah did help seal the deal.

congrats man!

Thanks!  Flip-flopped back and forth because I wanted to hold out til the holiday season.  Even if there is a really good Black Friday deal it probably won't be much better than this and I'll be able to enjoy it for the next 6 months.

 

Little bit of legwork but I should be able to get $35-$40 for MLB and then spend the $60 back credit probably on a 2nd controller.

look at it this way:

 

No taxes depending where you live.

 

start with $399.99

              -$59.99 (Cost of MLB Game)

             -$60 (The points you get back which could be used for a 2nd game of your choice or accessory such as 2nd controller)

Total Broken DOwn: $270 New PS4 Plus the cost of two games. so it make this deal pretty much buy the system and get 2 full priced games free without taxes (depending what state)

It was out of stock, but now it works again.  Damn this deal.  Wanted to hold off, but went ahead and got one even though my backlog of PS3 games is pretty ridiculous.  Too good to pass up.

I guess I'm confused somewhat by the offer- the Memorial Day promotion gives us 15% back ($60), so that supersedes/eliminates the 400 Rakuten Super Points that buying this would normally get us without entering the Memorial Day promotion code?

 

I'm just making sure that we don't get the $60 back plus the normal 400 Rakuten Super Points.  Pretty sure we won't...

Mine is showing 6000 points after. Reading fine print is says no points earned if using paypal express or google checkout. Also points expire in 60 days.

Sorry for the double post, but I just saw that video game purchases off of Rakuten are 10.5% cash back on eBates....

 

I honestly don't know if I can resist this now...
