This. Any time I get something with "good" condition it is worse than anything I have gotten that is acceptable.

same here, good has always been a terrible condition item, acceptable is usually great.

The two headsets I recently got were both below average condition for me, meanwhile Amazon stated Used - Good and Used - Very Good on them. Makes me weary of using them in the future. Considering I dinged my account on both returning them.

I wouldn’t say you dinged you’re account with legitimate returns. Fraudsters ding their accounts with the DNA (did not arrive) scams.

DId they wise up on their prices? I snagged one for $273 tax included a week ago. The machine is in perfect condition. It came with the box too which wasn't in the greatest of condition, but it's just the box. lol

There were a ton of new AWD listings / price mistakes that went up Mon-Tue this week.  By mistake I mean the result of the automated pricing continuing to apply drops AWD to items, even those selling instantly.  Starting yesterday it looked like they adjusted the price points for some of the more blatant ones.  I think the Series X was one of those changed. 

Most of the absurdly low prices ($400+ electronics items priced under $10) have been scraped by people running scripts on the site.  I saw several but only managed to order a few of the more lukewarm ones.

I think it comes down to lazy graders, they mark everything as acceptable that way they can rate stuff super quick. I could be wrong, but it might also cut down on returns, if people are set up to have poor expectations, they’re way less likely to return it. Just a guess, because I’ve also had so many acceptable items show up nearly brand new.

Where and how can I get a script for AWD?

I remember seeing late 2013 I think, near the PS4/XB1 launch they had PS3 games for like 10c shipped. Hard to say no to extra cases lol.

I got one for my Series S a while ago, before I lucked into my AWD Series X. I moved it to the X, but I'd still like to find another for the S. Or better still, a discounted 2TB for the X so I could move the original one back to the S.

I’ve seen $294 at the lowest for the 2TB expansion, I got my 1TB for around $100 and that’s been good enough for me.

Paid $100 or so for my 1TB as well. Dunno what my impulse break point would be on a 2 but if I found another 1 for 100, I'd bite.

several $247 oled nsw consoles up
https://smile.amazon...=A2L77EE7U53NWQ


I ordered one of these and it arrived today. Condition was listed as

“Used - Acceptable
Cosmetic imperfection(s) bigger than 1” on top, front or sides of item. Item will come repackaged.”

It came in the original box and as far as I can tell it is brand new with no damage at all.

Knowing my luck, I get the one that barely passes acceptable requirements.  I would feel so dirty knowing I could have just gotten a brand new one, to avoid the hassle associated with returning to Amazon.

I’ve found there is no real risk of trying, if something is truly wrong with the console, Amazon will actually reimburse you the cost to send it to Nintendo, and if the condition isn’t to your liking you can trade it to GameStop for a very small loss towards a new one, or just simply return. I think if you find one below $250 it’s worth the savings.

Yeah, I decided it wasn't worth it to me. I'll just swap my current one from console to console if needed. Even tho that price was solid lol.

I saved enough on my Series X through AWD that even having two expansion cards, I'd STILL be below MSRP for having both a series S and X.

I'm fine with having a second for convenience.

How much did you spend on your Series X? I got mine for $400. Which seem high compared to others, but mine shows Used - Good. Hopefully its includes the box lol.

The listings seem to lag some behind purchases.

Just the luck of the draw sometimes. My two cheap expansion cards and Series X were all just good timing. I'm sure people use bots but you can get the deals without botting if your timing is good.

For the people who ordered an Series X but had it delayed already. When did you actually get one? I been delayed once and its supposed to be here today 6/30, but its still hasn't shipped yet. But according to AMZ CS, Its will be here today based on what it shows. Like I can't read the same thing either.
