Apparently Publix has different ads in different states. I see the ad that has Golden Crisp B1G1 when I search Columbia, SC. But in Georgia and Florida its different ad with different sales/coupons.

Publix has on sale buy 1 get 1. I have ALOT of boxes now. Cereal is being donated to local food bank. Stocked for the holidays

I don't see this? I stopped by Publix today and there was no indication of B1G1. Checked weekly ad and it's not in the ad. Is it one of those where a coupon is required? I'm looking for coupon but don't see it. Maybe it's a regional deal?


In Topic: Wii u $249.99 at best buy via eBay deals

The 360 4gb is $170.  This thing has the GAmepad and 2 games and 32gb storage.

 

But the refurb direct from Nintendo is the way to go if you want  a Wii U.

That HDD-less 360 for $170 is a terrible deal also - relative to the $199 holiday bundles, but at least it's been $99 before (which is more what it's worth). Keep in mind the "regular  price" of the Wii-U is still $300. Having 4GB or 32GB is basically the same thing, as both are useless either way. 

 

 

Cue the slew of "The Wii U should be X Dollars, not this." comments.

It's true, but it seems at this point nobody even cares to comment anymore. I still care as I'd like to get a WIi-U and about 10 games, but as far as price it's more a matter of principal than anything.

I agree with the "meh" sentiment.

 

It's sort of rediculous at this point that this is a deal. Not the OP fault, but deals on this console should be <$199 now. Maybe Nintendo will finally make an effort this holiday, but I'm not counting on it - would have though they would be desparate to stay in the race last holiday and instead they did nothing. I expected perhaps a new hardware revision with more memory (I would pay $249 for that), maybe clearing out the old version, maybe $199 holiday bundle... and instead they basically offered the standard console for $279 LOL. There's no way I'm going to pull the trigger on this at anywhere close to $250 or $300.

Exclusive DLC? Is this different than what comes with the collectors edition of the game?

Also I hate the whole steelbook with digital code thing. Just give me the disc!

Looks nice but not for me.

Yeah, what the hell is this? That's a few of these empty steelbooks now. Makes no sense at all. Almost as bad as the collectors editions that don't even include a voucher (i.e. you pay $100 or $200 for collectors edition, and then have to buy the game separate). This industry is going to hell in a handbasket with these insane practices... but I guess as long as there are dummies to buy these crazy products it will continue to get worse. 

 

That being said, the $499 is a dealbreaker either way even if it included the disc and better "swag" or a season pass. Would still rather have Forza console for $399.  I don't see an extra $100 value here vs. Forza console, or $150+ compared to base console.
