Free games and a $170 3DS

#1aMichaelmPosted 8/3/2011 11:14:43 PM
Okay, so there are people who haven't bought a 3DS, right? So what they can do is buy a 3DS now, register to get the 20 free games, then price match to get the $80 dollars back. It would be good to make sure you will get the price match, like having your receipt signed or something.

This is VERY legal by the way. Unless there is a big sign somewhere on the store that explicitly says that it is against their rules, nobody can complain!

So, is anybody gonna do this, or not do this?

Did you miss the 20 threads about this already on your way in or what?

I suggest buying a 3DS now and another once the price drops. Put 20 free games on the $250 one then return the $170 one with the $250 receipt. Either that or don't be a weasel.

That way is definitely NOT legal.

Yet another generic snarky topic about getting the games and 80 dollars back. Fun times!

I'm just glad this 21st topic was here, I wasn't sure if I got it the first 20 times.

Also it won't work because of serial numbers...

Serial numbers don't exist, right?

Serial numbers will screw over anyone trying to do this. It's also completely pointless as most store have price adjustment policies that you can use instead, which is what the TV is talking about, which is old news at this point.

It's amazing people are still making NEW topics about this, like they discovered it all on their own and didn't at all see the other 50 topics about it.
