Gah, you're right about that.  Does seem early since it was tied to prime day.  There's also been a couple past 20% promos that were reactivated for a short period, so it may return.

My "very good" warehouse Mario Kart deluxe wheel came in, and scratches & scuffs are all over it. I question their grading process sometimes

Bought two 980 Pro 2TB ssd's this week.  One Acceptable ($212), one Good ($218).  Found it strange that a newer, in-demand item got the 25% markdown, but not complaining.  Hoping for the best since they will make one glorious 4tb raid0 array.

Between missing out on the LE restock on Iffy and Gamestop still hasn't fulfilled my $30 copy, I ended up getting a Very Good copy of Death End Re;Quest 2 for $34.49 after discount.

Everything in good shape except for a light crease on a small part of cover art.

Getting Returnal for for $35, GodFall Ultimate edition for $22, and Sakuna Special edition (PS4) for $36 was pretty awesome, all codes worked too.   I hope it, comes back because I really want to get a few more things that I was hesitant about.

 

Also wish I saw death end re;quest 2.

I always refrained form buying used/returned hard drives as my precious oclus pron needs to be safe... Maybe someday once they replace all the workers with robots they will add pictures of the individual lot so you can see exact condition  :oldman:

 

I've mostly ordered amiibos from warehouse, so typically they include the (opened) original packaging which seems kind of unnecessary.

This was especially true during the period of magnetic drives.  But with a ssd, as soon as I get an AWD shipment I can put the drive into a test bench system and run CrystalDiskInfo.  I'll know right away how many times the drive has been powered on, total hours of use, and any way the drive might be less than 100% healthy.

Wow that's super cool. Does that work with a PC internal SSD/HDD as well?

Yes, applies to internal or external. Free to download / use.  Just avoid the fishy ad boxes on the site.
CrystalDiskInfo (to pull drive info)
CrystalDiskMark (for testing speeds)

Awesome! A computer I got from the 25% off is coming this weekend so I will use that to test. I appreciate it

cpu-z would be another free utility to grab.  pulls cpu / motherboard / ram info.  Also has a tab that lets you stress / load all cpu threads.
If I bought a prebuilt off awd I would be pretty wary that someone previously swapped out an component then returned.

That's definitely my fear. I actually grabbed two fully expecting to need to return one of them. The deal was too good to pass up and have needed a new work computer for awhile now. Hopefully it's not a total disaster. One of the descriptions sounded like a dinger, but I feel like the descriptions have been way off lately.

Received my prime day warehouse order for the gold edition of Watchdogs Legion, steelbook has two large, very noticeable dents in the front, other than that the code is valid and disc looks okay.  Contemplating whether I should keep though since it's pretty banged up.

 

Also got a 8bitdo pro+ controller with some slight marks here and there, plus I'm almost sure it's been used a good bit too.

At least you got a steelbook. My order came today, standard edition, no steelbook or anything. Oh well, at least the return process is easy.

Do PS Vita’s ever show up anymore? I’ve checked around the used market and most are either $250, or in pretty terrible shape. I wonder if GameStop ever gets them either…

I haven't seen a vita pop up since deal seeker was around.

Wow it’s been a while then. I guess I’ll just have to spend a decent bit for one in good condition on eBay.

I would ask in the vita thread the best route to take.  But from what I remember it's to import a new one from amazon jpn sellers last I recall it being brought up.  I regret not getting a second vita before the prices skyrocketed for a backup.  But at least I have my vita tv for worst case scenario.

 

Mercari and ebay wise if you do decide to go those routes then wait for a promo coupon would be my suggestion.

That’s a good point, those seem a LOT cheaper and in way better condition, and if hacking there’s no difference as far as I can see, thanks!

You can get a vita brand new from some of the jpn sellers but will pretty much pay MSRP if not more.

Ended up buying and returning a US Vita 1001 for $165 that showed up cracked, and I kept hitting O instead of X because I guess on handhelds I’m used to the Switch now for menus. So I ended ordering a Japanese Vita 1000 and a 2000 off eBay for $120 each that are mint, the photos make them look brand new. In case anyone else was considering one, definitely check there, they’re WAY cheaper and cleaner.

The button layout would be the same as the switch unless it was jpn or altered.

Thanks for sharing this.  I'm just hesitant because Razer products break so easily/frequently.  Was the one you bought from awd?

Yeah, it was from AWD and it was $5 higher.

I didn't know Razer products break easily.....I ordered a Razer Ultimate that just arrived. I shoulda did a little more research but hopefully I'll be ok.
