#12691829 Cowboom DOD Flash Sale! PS4 500GB White $269, Xbox One $209, Xb...

Posted by Elusive on 15 May 2015 - 07:59 AM

I did see that on the headlines;

 

"Our Flash Sale Today is Out of Control! Literally! We are selling sweet deals on Gaming Consoles (without the controllers) today only with Free Shipping! Deals are rotating while supplies last."

 

As you said though, further down they note to include whats in the box. The receipt/order confirmation they sent me also says;

 

Included: Playstation 4 Console (glacier White), Dualshock 4 Wireless Controller (glacier White), Power Cable

 

Do you think they will stiff me those things? I'd be kinda pissed, but I have grounds to argue with them if they don't send me a controller too right? 

Yeah, I'm betting that if there's a problem, they'll just have you return it to them for a refund. They already let you return it for free, no questions asked, for two weeks, unless they changed it again recently (a while back it used to be 30 days).

 

 

What state are you in that they charged tax? Mine shows as $269 on the final screen before submitting payment as well.

I live in Indiana, which I don't think has anything of theirs in it, but I'm not sure. Either way, it wasn't charging me tax when I paid, so I'm slightly perturbed by it getting tacked on after the fact.

I got a call from the Gamestop I preordered Ike from and they said they got more in, so I could come in and get one. Glad to see I'm getting it, even if they screwed up and I had to wait an extra three months.

Looks like today's another one of their "out of control" sales where the consoles don't come with controllers. I personally don't think it's worth it, but feel free to jump in if you want.

I actually have a Cowboom search for Xbox Ones bookmarked and usually check it around this time of the night - a $210 Xbox One listing showed up and I got really excited until I clicked it and it took me to the deal of the day page. Maybe this means they have them for that price if you can get one to pop up for you, though if they don't come with a controller, you're really not coming out ahead here.

 

Edit: Just got one to pop up for me and they are $210 + $5 shipping (and sales tax, of course). I guess this is an okay deal if you somehow have a controller lying around, but I don't, so I gotta pass. I just want one for when Rock Band 4 releases, anyway.

They tried that with the gamecube. Didn't work out too well for them.

Proprietary disc that also had less space on it says hi.

I need some cardio to unwind, but I'm too nervous to stop refreshing the thread and Amazon.

I was supposed to weightlift today, but I keep telling myself that everything will happen as soon as I walk away.

 

This, of course, started over three and a half hours ago.

What's with all of the double posts I'm seeing lately that are 5-10 minutes apart? Are people clicking the post button, camping a site for Amiibos, and coming back and clicking it again? Crazy folks.

On topic, I've been sitting here at my comp and checking everything every few minutes. I know that as soon as I give up, they'll pop up.

I wonder what this means for online orders, assuming the site ever comes back up. Amazon may be my last hope.

At this point, I'd probably be able to save money by just preordering the Lucina Figma for ~$65.

Got the site to load and it doesn't look like the new Amiibos are up.

Hah, I woke up about ten minutes ago, just barely in time to miss the Fire Emblem characters. Shame. When I think about it, though, I would've had to pay shipping, anyway, which steers me away from Best Buy. I'm just going to cross my fingers and hope for the best when it comes to Amazon/Gamestop.

And if not... maybe it's a good thing I haven't tried to give away my Rosalina and Shulk yet.

Amazon has place holders up for Pac man, Charizard, Robin, Lucina and Wario.

brb refreshing Lucina's page every five minutes (or auto refreshing, whatever). Thanks for the heads up.

Also, I think I'm going to preorder a Ness tomorrow while I'm getting Lucina and Robin, too, just so I can sell it to someone who might want it and won't be able to check the site when he goes up. Now watch him be really easy to get. I still have a Rosalina and Shulk lying around that I haven't done anything with, too - I guess I'm just being jaded and worrying that I'll end up selling them to someone who's just going to turn around and sell them for profit.

Smt x fe looks like hot trash. big letdown to me.

I agree completely, because I'm a huge FE fan and it looked nothing at all like a FE game.

It might be better for everyone to post trades here. I don't think there's a thread dedicated to just CN codes, though.

So a ton of people waited until the last minute? Shocker. I'm glad I ended up with exactly enough coins to order the puzzle when it first came up so I wouldn't drive myself crazy having extra lying around.

My New Vegas CE came in today and except for the outer PS3 slipcover and the game itself (both of which are unimportant to me anyway) is still shrink wrapped. $34 well spent. Now to find someone to give the game to.

 

:xb1: (A) Xbox Halo 3 Special Edition Console $98.xx http://www.amazon.co...=A2L77EE7U53NWQ

I recall people having trouble with this console when they bought it from AWD. It'd be hilarious if it was the still the same one this many months later.

This poor thing's been up all night, can't imagine why no one's bought it.
