Best Buy Ad 1/28-2/3

I’m not seeing the Xbox for $189 on the ad.

 

Yeah it's not in the ad and not currently listed at that price online either. Target has the One S (no game bundle) for 189 and gives you a 50 dollar gift card. Problem is they're sold out of the console online and in stores.

Would be all over a Xbox One X if you could get both those promos to stack.

I've got the MU8000 and it's phenomenal. I'm actually using it as a computer monitor.

I didn't see Rayman Legends in this post, but I saw it in the ad for 19.99 on the Switch.  I might spend some of my $10 credits on it.

That’s the one I’m planning on getting this week from Costco. Get the xtra year warranty and get Squaretrade for a bit more.

The Sony X900E is nice but the extra money takes away from my Monster Hunter PS4 Pro lol

The $10 coupons you all received for requesting to pick up an item expires on February 3rd, next Saturday.

I don't think I've received mine yet...I should be getting 2 or 3 of them. 

 

How/where are they sent to us? Are these codes that are sent via email? Or do they simply get added to our Reward Zone/My Best Buy points?

 

If I haven't received yet, is there some semblance of customer service either via phone or chat that will actually help with this issue?

Raymans Legends for $16 after GCU is a good use of one of the $15 codes from $150 gc.

You're supposed to receive them via email.

I think your best choice is posting on their forums.

FYI, for those that still have the $10 savings codes that expire next week, you can buy a BB gift card with them. There isn't anything I want right now, but I didn't want to lose the codes, so I tried them on a gift card today and it worked. The CSR wasn't sure it would work, but we tried, and sure enough, no issues. Figured a gift card won't expire, so I have time to use it on whatever I want.

Thanks for the heads up. Can confirm this works. Cashier scanned my codes with no issues.

According to SD it looks like the free game and the free controller and 3 months of XBL promos do stack with the Xbox One X purchase. I guess if you add on of the select free games manually and not from the promo page it zeros out in the cart after adding the XB1 X, free controller, and 3 month XBL card.

This.  I still had AC Origins in the cart from last week and it is showing $0 even after the other promo is added.

So I guess it is working. I’ll be ordering the Xbox X. But which game should I order? I already have wwii, nba, battlefront, shadow of Mordor on PS4. I wish Forza Horizon was the Forza game. Not really interested in Motorsport 7.

What is the Promo with the free controller? I purchased another X1X last week and received a free game. Would I be able to take my receipt in and get the controller? Thanks in advance

It’s a free controller and 3 months of live. Ymmv

When do both promos end?

The free game promo seems to have ended. Guess I waited too long.

Thank you Tyrok. Appreciate the response. No changes mean no rush and a little more obsessing lol

I bought an x900e on black friday and i can assure you it is worth obsessing over.

So the 500GB XBox S for $189.99 isn't really a deal this week right?  Asking for a friend.

You should call them. They took my info and order numbers down and gave me an incident number in case the code don't show up this week.

Also curious as to this? Shame, I had just stocked up on bestbuy gift cards from Swagbucks after I saw that it was gonna be $189.

It was on my list of promos for the week but apparently it was fake news. :-

If anyone is worried about input lag on the 900E, don't. I was a little concerned about the 34ms lag but it turns out I don't notice anything different or worse compared to my last set. I tested my wall bouncing in Gears 4 and it's still pretty responsive. If you want to spring for it, I endorse it fully. Once you get the settings down and properly calibrate it, it's a mouth watering picture. I just played AC Origins on it on my XBX and the amount of detail is just astounding.

I spent a lot of time looking at the MU8000 and the X900E and I feel like the MU8000 is the superior TV.  I just never saw an instance where the X900E looked better on display. I'm going to trust my eyes before I trust mathematical reviews where they measure temperature and stuff like that.

Still waiting for my codes as well. I contacted their phone support and the person was not helpful at all. Sounded kinda like a passive aggressive broken record lol. The Web chat did offer to do a $30 price adjustment if I placed an order right then, but at the time I couldn't.

Go with the 8000

Need some advice should I jump now one the xb1 x deal with the free controller and live or wait it out for awhile longer. After all my Xmas BB gift cards I got from family this year I would only be paying $340 out of pocket for it. I do have a perfectly fine xb1 s that I am using currently and also have 2 controllers still in boxes that I haven’t used yet so even the free controller is not that special of a deal to me.

Do you have a 4K HDR TV? If the answer is yes then I would jump on this if I were you. I am in a similar boat as you though, minus the gift cards. 

 

I am personally waiting to buy an Xbox One X after I pay my Best Buy credit card off because I also want to get a new TV along with the One X. I have a 4K TV currently, but it doesn't have HDR and I have a PS4 Pro so I have not felt a need to get the One X with the lack of exclusives on the One right now and Cuphead looks just fine on my OG Xbox One.
