Kinda sucks that there’s no deals for New Nintendo 3DS XL systems...

I’m in a need for a new one and was planning on getting the Galaxy style.. (unless Amazon or someone will have something on Cyber Monday...?

So looks like I’m mainly getting the Roku Ultra and possibly Pokémon Ultra Moon from Best Buy... not much else, really...

Refer to the FAQ, specifically the selnd question.

I assume you mean "second", but I don't see how that's relevant. I'm talking about in the spreadsheet. 

 

next week maybe

Hopefully. Thanks.

Any sightings yet for the Xbox One S 2 controller bundle?

It's relevant because it, Gamestop's ad, isn't out yet. How do you expect us to get the info for the spreadsheet without the ad?

Hell I wish they'd bring back the non-XL sized "New" 3DS editions for $99 that they had two years ago.  I regret not getting one as my XL is too huge to fit in my pocket. People had given up on "old" 2DS tablets by that point, and the past two years have done little to warm people up to such increasingly antiquated tech.  Stores had the Zelda 2DS from last year available for many months before they could find some takers.

Dagh, I held off too long on the Newegg $270 Switch deal in case there was anything better (there wasn't), and now it's gone.  Shame on me.

ShopRunner is giving me free access until the end of the year all of a sudden. :o now I'm tempted to shop at Newegg again.

I've got it free with my Amex card, Newegg is the only place I've ever used it.

Except not everything at Newegg qualifies for ShopRunner

Oh shit, my bad. I was looking at the question about the Elite Pro membership. I was like "what the hell does that even have to do with what I asked"? But yeah, sorry about that. Wasn't trying to be a dick or anything. Just somehow missed it and was genuinely confused.

 

But besides, the GameStop ad has been leaked anyway.

Where? Are you confusing it with the Pro Days sale?

I checked the spreadsheet and didn't see any deals for the PS4 Pro. Does that mean Amazon is our only hope? I was hoping the Red Dead Bundle would be like $50 off or something. At least the VR bundles are $100 off almost everywhere.

Nothing leaked yet, you are reading clickbait articles. They are alluding/speculating Pro Day deals are what gonna be on BF.

Amazon isn't your only hope when they pretty much price match everyone else's prices.

 

Gamestop is more likely to have a deal

Have we heard any good deals on external hdds? Looking for one for my Xbox, if good enough of a deal I'd go with SSD.

I am looking at the Best Buy ad and on page 31 I see a 4TB for $79.99

If you’re military, veteran, or know someone in the military, the RDR2 Ps4 Pro Bundle is $349 now at the NEX and AAFES.

In general this entire BF seems underwhelming. Tons of games here should be way cheaper. E.g. I got No Man's Sky and Crash Trilogy for $16 each after GCU during DotDs..MONTHS AGO! Now for BF, where there's supposed to be unprecedented sales, they are more expensive and GCU is ineligible? Pft.

Also does anyone else with GCU feel like these are going to be regular sale prices in January but with GCU?

Neweggs ad sucks - so many of the same products have been on sale and for cheaper. They are clearly just trying to clear old stock without really competing, hoping the BF hype will trick people into spending. The only exception might be the evga Psu and some external HDDs.

Good movie sales are few and far between (same 4k movies same price as last BF lmao!)

The BF sales are generally weaker. I do like that Sony seems to be most with it for giving nice discounts on their first party titles such as Detroit and God of War, which aren't too old. Nintendo is like eh you can do $35 at most for most of these first party Switch games or about like 3 dollars off a 3DS version....take it or leave it. Most of the cheap stuff is decently old and similar priced to stuff last BF.

 

I'm not super crazy, though I will bite on at least 2 $35 Switch games (just got the thing....) and likely Detroit.

 

It just means less for the backlog, which is fine.

Doesn't work on BF but a lot of the same prices will happen again on Cyber Monday where it does.


Cyber Monday, then each game will have its own DotD each week starting Dec 1st lol

Agreed. The prices are still too damn high. BB is going to have to have these same prices just before BF or in Jan for me to bite so I can use GCU.

I am counting on GameStop to have some sort of bundle sale for the Switch or PS4 Pro.

Yeah so far I’m getting God of War for $20, Dragonball Fighterz for $17, maybe Monster Hunter for $17 and Mega Man Legacy X collection 1+2 (if on sale) but other then that not looks to enticing.

Thanks. I bought that same one (minus the extra thumb drive) for $90 for backup storage in May. Works well for storage. I'll check it out reviews for external xb1 drive
