Which after the prime discount or gamers club, best buy and Amazon are still cheaper.

Yeah, and depending on release qty's, probably easier to get as well. But still a good secondary option, if BB/Amazon are sold out.

That's assuming you can get it from either after Black Friday. Remember, the 3DS BF Bundle was only sold last year on Black Friday and you couldn't find it afterwards. Zelda Explorer and the Zelda 2DS are releasing on BF just as that did, so assume the same will happen.

Thanks for the posting - securing one with Target just in case.

Sold out on Amazon at the moment and people are unsure if Prime discount applies.  GCU does not apply on Black Friday so hopefully Best Buy makes this available before then.

Thanks for posting the Target link to Zelda EE.  I placed an order to hold one, ill cancel if a better deal comes along.  I don't want to miss out like I did on Amazon.  Is this actually a LE or will they start selling these instead of the normal version?

Pretty sure it's an LE with limited stock..

At least that's how Nintendo made it to sound.

I guess that explains why it's not up yet.

The thing is GCU does work on non-sale regular-priced items on BF.  This is a BF-advertised item (though not on sale) so I have no idea if it will give a GCU discount on Friday.  My hunch is though that it will.  Guess we will find out.

I agree with what you wrote, though I still believe that BestBuy will put a portion up for preorder beforehand.  It certainly will not extinguish their stock, but it's not a high-demand console (e.g. Mario N3DS in 2016) and, as you said, it's MSRP with a pack-in.

Did the same thing and was told the exact opposite, as Prime no longer offers discounts on Collector's Edition.


My Zelda Explorer Edition has the 20% discount.

There was a period of a few hours where Amazon offered the discount (likely by mistake). They later made the item unavailable. When it came back in stock, the discount was no longer available.

I spoke with a representative that confirmed it will qualify for the 20% discount.

Even if its not applied, at least I will have a leg to stand on. I'm sure they log all customer service chats.

Mine didn't but I per-ordered right after it went live. I asked Amazon about it and they refunded $20 to my cc from a past purchase so all I can do now is hope the prime discount gets added later and profit.

just want to chime in and say that i sent amazon a message and they credited me 20% for the discount too, even though i ordered it at the full price

Mind copying what you sent in the message?

I used chat and the rep advised they would only be able to refund it once the item was shipped.

Not as of yet. The page that was posted in this thread still says "coming soon".

I asked for the 20% off again and got the "it will be refunded after shipment" reply, tried a third time and got a $5 credit, and tried right now for a fourth and final time and an Amazon delivery vehicle just pulled up outside and four men got out and are currently coming into my building. All of my Amazon devices have turned on and Alexa just keeps repeating "You shouldn't have done that."

 

Does this mean I'm not getting the $12? Even if I'm gone, I still want the $12 refunded, it's the principle of the thing

Meh just ordered @ Target I'd rather get it full retail then not get it at all. I'll likely be at work when it goes live @ BB anyway.

I have the original 2ds. I will skip this one and bought the Pokémon 2ds for the form factor.

So who is going for the 2ds?

They have already put the 2DS out on the shelves at my local Wal-Mart. I'm unsure if the register will allow a sale yet or not though, didn't have time to try it this morning.

If it was a 2ds XL I’d bite. Not this though.

I have not owned more than one Nintendo handheld, so if I were to get the Zelda 2ds how difficult is it to link the preinstalled game to my account on my new 3dsxl?

only if you want more from the game. ask yourself that question and look deep within your soul. if you can't figure it out by then well go and rub one out and then think about it some more. thats usually the process i do when i can't make a decision.

FYI. Nintendo won’t let you link more than one 2DS/3DS to your account for installing downloadable games. So your second console would only be good for physical games

I hate myself for buying this 2ds. And now the super nes one. And because I got that, I bit the bullet and grabbed the original nes 3ds XL odd ebay. Like, shit man. Double digit 3ds systems lol.
