Great news for those of you who are looking to get rid of some games you’ve already completed, or no longer want, as Best Buy is offering an extra 30% trade in bonus this week. The deal also stacks up with Gamers Club which makes it a great promotion. Which games are you looking to trade in?
Thinking of jumping on the Wii U bandwagon? Well, if you want a deal you’re best of heading to the Best Buy website where you can pick up a 32GB Wii U Deluxe Console with the fantastic Super Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land for $275. It’s not a massive saving, but it’s certainly better than nothing.
The amiibo craze is real and it turns out that quite a few of you were hoping to get the Meta Knight amiibo from Best Buy. It turns out that they were very limited in quantity, so Best Buy has kindly given out a $5 discount code for use against any Wii U or Nintendo 3DS software which includes all new releases. The discount code is only valid until today so I hope you managed to get one.
Several readers have contacted me to say that they’re rather annoyed as they’ve just had confirmation that their Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask themed New Nintendo 3DS consoles have been canceled at the last-minute. The company says that they took too many pre-orders and are unable to fulfill demand. A sad situation for some Nintendo fans hoping to have the special console tomorrow.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
The Super Mario Collection Amiibo are currently available to pre-order on Best Buy. This includes all the figures excluding Mario who comes with the Mario Party 10 bundle for the Wii U. If you want the Super Mario Collection Amiibo figures then you had better be pretty quick about it as they’re selling out fast.
A number of you have contacted me to say that Best Buy have canceled your New Nintendo 3DS Majora’s Mask edition consoles. The issue is is that it’s affecting those who only pre-ordered one system. As compensation the retailer has started to issue a $50 gift card as a way of saying sorry. It’s not clear why, but I’d assume they took too many pre-orders and don’t have the stock to fulfill them.
We’re sorry but there is an issue with your pre-order. The popularity of Nintendo 3DS XL Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Limited Edition Gold/Black exceeded the quantities made available to Best Buy. As a result, we are unable to fulfill all of the pre-orders received. We regret that your particular order has been canceled and we know that this is disappointing. We want to make it up to you by offering a $50 discount that may be used towards the purchase of one of these alternate options, or other products on BestBuy.com:
Thanks to all those who sent this in.
Looks like US retail chain Best Buy is cracking down on scalpers who are trying to make a quick buck off the back of the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D limited edition New Nintendo 3DS. Reports are going round the internet stating that Best Buy is cancelling orders if you ordered more than one console. That means that everyone is only allowed to purchase one console per customer to crack down on inflated eBay prices. We already heard GameStop is doing a similar scheme.
