The Best Buy I work at in Chicago is selling out of all the PS4 Uncharted bundles that's listed for 249.99$ and you also get 2 additional games with it Last Of Us and Ratchet & Clank. We also have deals on all Xbox bundles you get 50$ off any of their bundles. But like I said we've been selling mostly the PS4 uncharted bundles and hardly any Xbox bundles and literally zero Wii U bundles.Although I must say we've sold out of all the 3DSs listed for only 99$. I'd say 60% PS4 bundles , 30% 3DS, 10% Xbox bundles 

 

 

Could you reveal us how many 99$  NEW 3DS units did you had?

The same is happening in my walmart due to the $30 gift card aside of the price cut.



how many pros?



It's not even Friday yet, though.

Ove the last few years there has been an upswing in retailers starting Black Friday on Thanksgiving night around 8pm.

I was at a Best Buy earlier today and an oblivious customer asked the Sony rep standing by the demo ps4 to get an Xbox One S down from an overhead storage area. The rep sighed and said he can pick one up at the cashier in a manner that he's said that a hundred times already.

Sorry OP - I'm not buying your tale.

Or maybe it was, " Your asking me to help you with a competitor product? Are you that stupid?" 

Seriously dude, that didnt cross your mind once? I worked at many retail stores where the Coke guys wont touch/move anything Pepsi. Common behavior amongst competiting employees

I don't understand the significance of your experience and how it disproves the experience of what OP, who works at the store, described.

Poor WiiU...

well... not much to say. Nintendo has just let it die (contrary to what some ppl say support wise).

I guess most of the best games will get a 2nd lease on life with the Switch.

The Best Buy employees wear blue shirts and the Sony reps wear a similar blue shirt.  I'm sure the customer made an honest mistake and the Sony rep understood the error.  I'm sure both parties weren't perturbed.

 

You really think minimum wage workers who don't work on commission care what the customer ultimately buys either way?
