Want Best Buy items without going to Best Buy. GOOD NEWS.

#1VashVhexXPosted 6/17/2013 8:24:42 PM
Are you living outside of the US or are you just plain lazy? Good news, you can get the Best Buy items without leaving the comfort of your home-- including today's Raccoon Clock.

In your 3DS Internet settings, change your SSID to "Bestbuy" exactly as I typed it, without the quotes. If you did it correctly, you'll see the Nintendo zone icon light up! All you have to do then is go to your post office and receive the gift from Pelly.

Simple as that!

Interesting parable, male sibling

Does this mean if we can find out the SSID of the 7-11 Nintendozones in Japan, we can exploit it?

If it isn't region locked, and you can find said SSIDs... Yes.

Problem is, the promotion periods outside of US are already over.

Guess it's over, now. Bummer. I should have posted this earlier.

What's "over"? The giveaway? It's going on until the 29th, so it's not over. You just lied about the trick working, is all.

He didn't lie about the trick working, as I did it myself. He simply got how to do it wrong.

You have to go into your router settings and change its SSID to "Bestbuy", exactly as typed. Then, in your 3DS, set up this newly named SSID as an access point, including whatever password you have to access your wireless.

On your 3DS, it will register being near a Nintendo Zone. Now, simply load up New Leaf, go to the post office, and collect your present.

This actually works!!! ^__^ Thank you for saving me $3 for bus fare and a long hot walk to Best Buy!!! Do exactly as he says just change your router SSID to "Bestbuy", make sure you set it up as a connection in your 3DS settings and go straight into the game and go to the post office :)
