Patience. I used to order Saturn games in the 90's and it sometimes took a month to get your game if it arrived at all. If it didn't arrive, you could kiss your $70 goodbye. And if it arrived with a broken case, tough shit. But then again we weren't entitled brats back then, either.

Not a brat, but a sucker.

Honestly it seems like gamestop is the sucker. I ordered surge 2 le for 29 on dotd and they shipped the free controller with it. So 31 bucks with tax for the game and controller so far.

If they never ship the console I guess I get a free controller. If this is the way they operate I can see why 100's of stores are closing.

Just a heads up to check the warranty with microsoft (register it to your account).  Lots of people reporting expired warranties and you have to contact Microsoft. 

But warranties begin when a new console is purchased, correct? (unless I'm missing something).

I put in my serial number after logging into my account online.  It properly reflected 1 year from the day I bought (in store).  I wonder if Game Stop is submitting the wrong dates or something for some?   

 

I didn't have to provide anything but a serial number for microsoft.com to look up my warranty.

Are they an authorized reseller? Slickdeals has this seller banned for whatever the reason.

Yes they are, you can search for their website and see as well.  I got one back before Christmas from them and Microsoft had no issues setting the warranty to the new purchase date.  Took only a few minutes in chat.

This is not the vendor (ANTOnline or Gamestop), it is the package.  It is an older XBox X bundle (from last year, NBK 2k19 is last year's game) and has been repurposed by MS into a bundle back then (it isn't used or refurbished, they just took unsold consoles and wrapped a sleeve around them and put a card inside the box on the top for the game redemption).  MS just had an end date for availability I guess and the good deal on this package is vendors trying to clear out stock.

Ordered mine 12/23, shipped 12/24, arrived 12/30. So did the white controller, brand new in box.

 

Original packaging resealed when Gamestop (i'm assuming) put the XBL/Pass/NBA2k19 codes in the box. Everything else seemed untouched; original packaging, Xbox and controller without scuff marks or any signs of it being anything but brand new.

 

Signed into it, immediately appeared in my devices list: https://account.microsoft.com/devices/

 

Warranty showed correctly, ended 12/24/2020. 

 

If your Xbox has an earlier date, that means it was registered. IDK why that would be. That would require someone to take unwrap the Xbox and sign in. So either Gamestop did it when they purchased the system, or, I hate to say it, it's technically an open-box item and should be disputed.

So I got my controller with a zero dollar invoice. Console still hasnt shipped. Guess I am only getting a free controller.

The shipping label for mine printed on 12/23. As of last night, it now shows up on UPS tracking for delivery on Friday.

No it doesn't mean it was registered.  The MS rep confirmed no one has EVER been assigned to my X previously and he adjusted the warranty.  It was also packaged perfectly, so if someone had used it before they showed some inhuman level of repackaging.

 

And Gamestop did not do the repackaging, that is a MS bundle.  Several retailers had it last year (well year before last now).

Sadly Gamestop will be out of business before they ship your XB

Sure, if you take their word for it I guess. But how some Xboxes began their warranties without being sold is still a mystery.

So mine is still not shipped. Anyone know how long they keep you in limbo? Anyone know if any similar deals still exist?

I didn't just take their word for it.  It was clear from the packaging it was factory packaging.  Even refurbished consoles don't get that treatment, everything in the box was pristine, not a fingerprint or wrinkle anywhere - not to mention MS makes it obvious when a console is refurbished, and they have no reason to lie about it when someone else is selling it.  It was obviously factory wrapped.  Everyone has reported this.  The only change was a game redemption card in the sleeve for NBA2k19 on top of the box when you opened it.

 

It isn't some mystery except people prone to conspiracy theories.  It's an older package that was repurposed and labelled for NBA2k19 and it kicked in early because an error on the bundle.

 

Just ask yourself a question.  Why would Microsoft reset a warranty without question on a used console they did not sell themselves if it really were used?  What purpose does it serve (for them) by hiding whether a console is used/refurbished or not for another vendor when they clearly mark the refurbished consoles they sell themselves?

My controller invoice shows 55.44 and I never picked up the console.....so not sure what that means. How would they even return the controller if I am not charged? $272.24 was refunded to my account but I am wondering if they will correct the controller invoice and charge $55.44

 

The order status on gamestops website still shows that console is ready for pickup:)

I ordered another game and they shipped it with the controller. That may be why it was 0.00 on the packaging slip

picked up the Xbox one X NBA system with the extra controller included. Asked for a gift receipt.
They gave me 2. One for system and one for the controller. I asked how much is the controller showing up as?
I believe he said around 50. Just returned it and got couple days ago got $59+tax.
That made me quite happy.
Refund was cash.
Even happier.

That is what i suspected would happen........so regardless if I return or keep the controller from my intentionally cancelled order, it will result in bad karma:)

My order was canceled but I was able to get one from AntOnline (and a free controller from GameStop!). Still an amazing deal.

If anyone wants the code for NBA 2k19, DM me.

Edit: code claimed
