Is the brickseek price always accurate?   Is it possible that it might be clearance price even though brickseek says $149.99?

 

It's not 100% accurate all the time, but I've never personally seen BS say full price and it actually be clearanced, I have had BS say clearanced and it be full price though

Not gonna happen. There’s probably two stores in the entire US that have the price and it’s most likely an error. I’ve checked dozens of stores in various states on brickseek and none show that price.

 

2 stores in my town got down to $44.98, both got cleared out ages ago

There is a store within driving range of me but the DPCI is actually no longer in their system. Can't buy and change payment at that store as they can't ring it up.

No one is going to do that for you. And "extra"? You mean $2 that won't even cover shipping or tax?


Why do you immediately jump to me being a jerk and trying to screw someone over on a deal? I have no idea what it would cost to ship it or what their tax would be. I don't want to pick a number that would be unfair. If someone was willing to find one and wanted to discuss, I'd do so. As someone that sells a lot of things online, I understand how all of this works. I'm not looking for a handout.

Just for fun, how much would be a reasonable number for someone that bought the 49 2ds xl?

I’m curious at this point. What would be the reasonable price to offer / charge?

I have the new 3DS, is it more comfortable? Shoulder buttons look more rounded and easier on hands

It's comfortable, albeit cramped for larger hands.  I couldn't play much more than 30 minutes without a grip.

 

I'd strongly recommend one of the controller-shaped grip add-ons, as well as some headphones or a small speaker.  The existing speakers are in the top of the system now and vibrate the entire 2DS when the audio is on.

this should really just be merged into the Target thread, this deal was posted there like a month or two ago

Epect to add $15 to $20.

I would expect to add 5% -10% to cover sales tax. So about $2.50 - $5.00. Based on weight I expect USPS would make you ship priority mail. I'm estimating the weight including packaging to be in the 1 - 2 pound range. Priority mail 2 day costs $12.90 at that weight. If by some mgic trick it came in under or exactly equal to 1 pound then the same shipping method would be $8.45. This of course does not include packaging, time, and effort.

 

Nobody buying spares at $50 is trying to hook some random person on CAG up, let's be honest here. If it was a member I actively talk to and have a repertoire with, maybe, but average joe blow on this site that is clearing stores out of $50 2DS XL's isn't here to hook someone up for $20 premium

I'd be happy to pay someone a bit on top of the cost of a DS at $45 if you would ship it. If interested PM me.


Thought you were mocking the people who actually ask for this kinda thing until you doubled down an went on the offensive. Thanks for the laugh.

I've hooked plenty of CAGs up for just the cost and didn't ask a penny more. When Lockerz was clearancing out 3DS XL for $45 and OLED Vitas for $90 I picked up some extras to hook up CAGs I've networked with over the years. They've hooked me up over the years and sold items to me at cost so it's not a problem to return the favor. Not everyone here is out to make a profit. Try some networking and you'll be surprised on how many great deals you can have an option to buy.

I'd gladly hook up people here I actually recognize, not joe blow who randomly showed up cuz he saw 2DS XL for 75% off and asked someone to help him out

Offensive? If you thought that was me attacking or lashing out, you are way to sensitive. It was simply a response.

I was raised that it never hurts to ask. Worst someone can do is say no. That is perfectly fine as well.

Actually meant to quote Kotor. Whoops. I agree it never hurts to ask. And you offered to pay a bit extra. He on the other hand had me all smiles with the $44.98 for $45 shipped comment.

Ok, cool. Sorry for the misunderstanding on my end as well. Have a great weekend!

Happened to be on a family trip to Niagara Falls today, and convinced my wife to stop at Target. Was able to grab one for $45 for my oldest kid, it'll be her first game system that's "just hers." Thanks OP!

The Falls is a good time! Did you hop on over to the Canadian side? I visited not long ago and I always give people a heads up, it’s quite a walk from where you can park a car on the CDN side. I cycled to it and locked up the bikes from our B&B a couple miles from the Falls.

I do love the Canadian side; I went to NU and Clifton Hill was our playground :) But this time we just went to a "Fairy Festival" at Artpark in Lewiston. Had the wife keep the kids in the front of the store while I snuck back to electronics. Boxes were marked $75 but Brickseek told me $45, and with some gentle prodding, we got it down to the correct price. Sales guy was cool, he just wasn't sure he had the authority to adjust the price at first.

Have never owned multiple 3DSs, discovering it's a bit of a bummer that there's no way to share my existing digital purchases on my old 3DS XL with my daughter's new one, but hey, that's Nintendo, folks! At least they've finally modernized that kind of stuff a bit more with the Switch.

I'd gladly pay $75 + Shipping and handling for a 2ds xl. I'm not sure if I'm being obnoxious, just wanted to give my brother a 3ds after his basically died since it was an og, but this will be better.

Also, I'm sure this is YMMV, but if one store is OOS and has it for $45 and I price match, would I use the target app for that specific store?

Stores are not supposed to price match another stores clearance price, clearance prices are per-store

Did they just mark these down again today? I thought this was long over with, but I found 2 at my local store in California! Wish I would have got the $45 price, but still pretty good.

It's entirely possible, they have to get shelf space somehow before they move stuff off to a goodwill store. Still full price at all stores near me besides the handful that got cleared out at $45

When u return it they will prob tell u it has to go out on the floor first so u will prob have to rebuy the next day. Unless u get a newb customer service person...
