YMMV disclaimer.

For those that still have student coupon for $130 off XB1 + 40" TV bundle. YMMV depending on whether you can combine the Halo controller deal available in store only on 11/7. Note: You can do this online with current free game deal but the $50 gift card gets dropped in the shopping cart. Might be possible to do this in store.

40" Insignia LED TV + Xbox One Gears + $59.99 free game + $50 gift card + halo controller for $300 after returns using student coupon. YMMV.

BB (11/7 only) has Xbox One Gears Bundle + $59.99 free game + $50 gift card + halo controller for $380 : http://www.bestbuy.com/site/clp/h...4700050000

The TV is $250: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/insig...Id=1729549

$630 for bundle - $130 student coupon = $500 + tax
Return the TV - $200 - tax(coupon splits discount).

Netting $300 + tax for XB1, $59.99 game + $50 GC + Halo controller.

I looked at my current student coupons and there is no $130 off an Xbox One. Where did you find it ?

It was from last round, it expires on 11/7 which happens to fall within the 11/7 Halo controller bundle sale period Sat 11/7 1-5PM.
I hadn't used mine, so I'm definitely trying this tomorrow.

Just figured others should have a heads up.

Just be sure to check the fine print...

Usually with the gaming bundles, if you return one item, you void the 'bundle pricing'. Not sure if that's the case with the TV as well, but I think it'd be a good idea to double check...

Even without the $50 GC, I still think this is a solid deal for $300+tax for Gears Bundle + $59.99 Game + Halo controller vs. the Newegg deal. Thoughts?

I just did this on the website. Their site was charging me $50 for the giftcard, so I called in beforehand and asked what could be done. I was told to place the order and she will refund the $50.

After calling, it was instant. Now to see if I can return the TV, or if it's gonna jack up my discount on the system. I also got the $20 Bestbuy AmEx promo and used the $20 Visa Checkout promo code from this past weekend.

Total was $468 including taxes. GOW Bundle, TV, Halo 5 and $50 GC.

Nice job on thinking's outside the box to make the deal work, instead of auto thumbs down like others. So after returning the TV you should end up with around $250 for XB1 Gears, Halo 5, $50 GC.

BTW you can always try and sell the TV on CL too for $225-$250. or if you want to move it quick sell it for how much you would have gotten from BB for return, then you don't have to deal with CS and bundle whatever.

Wow, this is a great deal online. I think I will try this out. Let us know how the return goes. bounce
It says expressly on the coupon that it can not be combined with other offers or coupons. So it is a huge YMMV. If one purchases it online, they forgo the controller.

I just did this in store and returned the TV right after. Everything was super simple and it came out to $280 plus tax. Gears Bundle, $50 BB gift card, game of choice for $280 plus tax. I also used Apple Pay through discover which will knock off another 10%.

For me I wasn't too worried about the controller. I didn't want to have to drive to the store, wait in line and try to debate with a clueless cashier when using the student coupon on the off chance it didn't work.

I am happy with it. Plus my son won't be using the XBox one yet. He has my 360 that I am moving to his room now so he will be super excited!

Sweet and good to know they didn't deduct anything off the package price for the XBox system.

Just got back in getting this deal... My original math wasn't exact.

Looks like they charge the TV at full price then take the coupon/discounts... It rearranged how the $130 discount gets split, so it kind of short changed me about $10 in discounts.

Breakdown:
Halo 5 $0
Halo 5 Controller $29.99
Xbox One Gears Bundle $280.00
40" Insignia TV $219.98
$50 Gift Card $0.00

Subtotal: $529.97

Returning TV yields $309.99 for Xbox One Gears Bundle + Halo 5 + Halo 5 Controller + $50 GC.

Like to add that I didn't have any problems having them ring me up. Just asked for the Sale Bundle and the TV and while I was at the register mentioned I had student coupon as well.
