In Topic: Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVII

I have a very small % of feedback, but I've always been allowed to disburse at my choosing.

From what I've heard they stopped offering the request disbursement option a couple years ago for new sellers. Everyone who made a seller account before then still has the option.

It is annoying that I can't leave a description on new games anymore. I always mention if there are any tears/rips in the seal.

You're not supposed to sell those as new, that's why they removed the ability to leave a description.

I highly doubt there will be a goty edition when the deluxe already is goty edition.

Then I guess we'll just to have to wait for the PS5 version with everything included... this is a Capcom game after all.

The 3DS is definitely pocketable. Or for kids who take it to school they can throw it in their backpack without much thought. Not going to happen with a Switch. 

Why not? How is carrying around a Switch in a backpack harder than carrying around a 3DS in a backpack?

 

Power doesn't matter when it comes to a handheld. It never has. They've always been far inferior to consoles technically speaking. The 3DS is still selling very well so many years after release which further proves that people don't care.

The GBA sold very well for years but sales slowed after the DS came out. The DS sold very well for years but sales slowed after the 3DS came out. I expect 3DS sales will slow in much the same way now that the Switch is out.


In Topic: B1G1 40% off selected video games at BB (DOTD)

Does the Red Card 5% come off before tax is factored in?  If so, then you would also need to factor that in.

It doesn't matter. The total works out the same either way.

 

Not sure how non elite GCU people (like me) are getting 3.5% back?  half a point per dollar.  Double that with GCU for new video game.  1 point a dollar.  $250 (only on video games) spent to get $5.  Seems like 2% to me but maybe I screwed up the math.

2% back in Best Buy points. 1.5% back on a credit card. Credit cards that give 1.5% back on all purchases don't require that high of credit scores nor do they have annual fees. I don't understand why anyone wouldn't have one unless they are against credit cards in general (in which case they wouldn't have a Red Card either).
