Nintendo 3DS XL

Malexdal 4 10 January 21, 2013 at 03:27 PM
I just started looking for deals on the Nintendo 3DS Xl handheld system and I would really appreciate some advice or help on what I have found out so far.

Deals I've found:
Best Buy: $179.99 (until the 26th)
Toys R Us: $20.00 Gift Card

Nintendo 3DS Mario Kart 7 Holiday Bundle: Regularly $199.99

I would love to get the holiday bundle but I've had a really hard time finding it available in stores. I can get it shipped to me for $7 to my home but i'm not really sure it's worth the hassle if I can get it for $180 and then just buy a game instore.

There are a few things that I was wondering. Does anyone know if Costco has any bundles or deals on? They usually have some crazy deal that others don't have. I haven't been able to go to there store yet though.

Also, is it at all possible to go to a place like Toys R Us which sells the mario kart bundle online, and ask them to price match Best buys $180 deal and get it shipped to me?

Thanks for any help or advice you can give me!

I will try too help as much as I know as a parent that purchased one around xmas time.What is the timeline that you are working with on getting the 3DS? It's going to be tough finding a good stock of holiday bundles laying around trust me I've looked. The thing about the bundle is that some may have an actual game cartridge and some have just the game preloaded on the system. So it's up to you if the person really like the specific game bundle or you're just taking a chance on what they like.Its rare that those Mario games go on sale but other games may be on sale.I know TRU has buy 1 get1 50%off on games $19.99 or less.

If it's what you really want, $7 shipping may not be a bad thing.
I don't have a Costco membership only Sams, you may have to drive around to different locations if you don't find what you are looking for online. Each store may vary on their inventory.

"Also, is it at all possible to go to a place like Toys R Us which sells the Mario kart bundle online, and ask them to price match Best buys $180 deal and get it shipped to me?" For what I know, I had TRU price match Kmart sale but it was in store only. They will not do it with online and you need to have the sales paper that you are price matching. You can read their price match policy on their website.

I would say if you're not in a huge hurry you may be able to grab 1 around $159.Also remember that 3DS XL only comes in red, blue or pink. Whereas 3DS comes in a variety of cool colors but I would definitely give the advantage to a bigger screen.

I hope this helps you in some way. Welcome to Slickdeals. If anyone else reading this find error in my interpretation of assisting a fellow slickdealer please chime in.
