WagJag Canada: $149 For An Xbox 360 Console & Free Shipping ($339 Value)

Posted by on May 10, 2014 at 3:30 PM

WagJag Canada: $149 For An Xbox 360 Console & Free Shipping ($339 Value)

I love it when WagJag Canada offers electronic deals and right now they have a great one.  Get a refurbished Xbox 360 Console for just $149.

Here is what you will get with this deal:

  • Xbox 360 S Console with 250GB hard drive
  • Xbox 360 wireless controller
  • Xbox 360 headset
  • Xbox 360 composite A/V cable (for using your Xbox with standard definition TVs)
  • 30-day exchange warranty on defective products

If you were to price compare this unit to other stores such as Best Buy, you will see that this is the best all-around price offered. I love the fact that the Xbox 360 can play games, and you can also use the wifi on it to go on Youtube, and even store your favourite movies, music, TV shows and pictures on it as well.  It is so much more than just a gaming system.

You will only be able to buy one per person, but you can buy extra as gifts for others.  Additionally, you will not have to pay a cent for the cost of shipping or taxes, so the final cost with no hidden charges is just $149.

Microsoft Store Canada: Pre-order xBox One + Titanfall + 1 Month xBox Live Gold For $499

Posted by on February 24, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Microsoft Store Canada: Pre order xBox One + Titanfall + 1 Month xBox Live Gold For $499

Get the xBox One, Titanfall and a month of xBox Live Gold for $499 from Microsoft!

The price of this item isn’t a sale, per se. The bundle’s regular price is $499. The deal here is that they are still selling the xBox One by itself for the same price. The game that comes with it, Titanfall, retails for $59.99.  If you were planning on getting this game along with an xBox One (I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t get this game) then you’re saving about $60. If you weren’t planning on getting it, well, I can’t help you. You’re broken.

You also get a month of xBox Live Gold, which you need in order to play Titanfall. Titanfall is a mix of a single player story mode game and an online game. Basically you are playing through story mode but the other people in your team are online, not computer controlled. And it has giant mechs. I love giant mechs.

Microsoft made a point of mentioning the Titanfall packaging. Not a special Titanfall skin over the console itself or the controller. No, no. The box. I don’t know why in the world they would mention that but some marketing goon thought it was important so I figured I’d mention it here too. Maybe it’ll sell more consoles. I dunno.

This is a pre-order so it doesn’t come out until 11th March 2014. Shipping is free and you don’t have to get it at Microsoft Store. Other places like Amazon Canada  have it available too.

Microsoft Store: Pre-Order Titanfall and Get a Free $10 xBox Gift Card

Posted by on February 18, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Microsoft Store: Pre Order Titanfall and Get a Free $10 xBox Gift Card

Get Titanfall from the Microsoft Store and get a free $10 xBox gift card!

I love mech games. MechWarrior, of course, is the big guns in the world of mech games but there are others like FrontMission and now Titanfall. Titanfall is interesting in that it is essentially an online-only FPS that plays like a single player campaign game. I don’t know how it is going to work in practice but people seem to dig the beta and if the videos on Titanfall’s YouTube Channel are any indication, it looks like they’ve managed it very well.

If you pre-order Titanfall from the Microsoft Store before March 9th, you will get a $10 xBox gift card. You can use it to get the inevitable DLC when it comes out or, if you aren’t up for the DLC thing, you can pick up an indy game or two with the $10. Or you can just hang on to it and pick up some other game another time.

The gift card and game are both digital so no shipping or waiting is required.

EBGames Canada: Get 30% More Value When You Trade Slim PS3/xBox/WiiU Towards PS4/xBox One

EBGames Canada: Get 30% More Value When You Trade Slim PS3/xBox/WiiU Towards PS4/xBox One

Optimize your trade when you trade out your old console for a new pre-order at EB Games Canada.

Is your old console (or new in the case of the WiiU) collecting dust? I know if my PS3 wasn’t my (and perhaps more importantly, my son’s) Netflix machine I’d definitely be doing this. I almost wish I had bought an xBox 360 or WiiU just to be able to trade it in. I don’t buy a lot of games and, at this point, I’ve bought pretty much everything I’m going to, so if I traded it in, it wouldn’t be a big deal. I guess I do still need to pick up Assassin’s Creed 3, so I’d miss playing that. What I’m saying is that, at this point in the console’s life cycle, if you aren’t playing it a lot, it won’t hurt too much to give it up. The PS4 is coming out on November 15th and the xBox One has to be somewhere around there, so you aren’t going to have to wait long to get the next-gen gear.

I also suspect there are a lot of people out there who have a PS3, an xBox 360 and maybe even a WiiU. You could trade them all in for tons of credit, or just pick one or two. You can live with one console, right? Right. The value of your console depends on what you have with it. A bigger hard drive gets you more credit and each console has a different value. I also suspect, and I’m not 100% sure, that the value is different based on where you are. Whatever your old Slim PS3, Slim xBox 360 or WiiU is worth, you get an extra 30% on top of its value when you trade it in towards a PS4 or xBox One.

This deal is available in store only.

Future Shop Canada: Xbox Days

Future Shop Canada: Xbox Days

I nearly missed Xbox days at Future Shop which would have been a crying shame. Today and tomorrow you can still enjoy Xbox Days with great savings on Xbox accessories and console bundles.

If you need a new Xbox this bundle certainly is appetizing: the Xbox 360 250GB Spring Value Bundle With Gears Of War: Judgment & Halo 4 is on sale from $399.99 down to $299.99. You also get a FREE digital copy of Halo Reach with your purchase of this Xbox 360 bundle. I like added bonuses.

Need an extra controller? That is easy! Future Shop has the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller  on sale for only $39.99, that is $20 off the regular price. Or you could spring for the Microsoft Xbox 360 Essentials Pack which comes with a controller, HDMI cable, remote, and three month Xbox Live Gold Membership. All of this is on sale for $69.99, you save $20.

If you have got a taste for the Xbox Live Gold Membership and found you want more – Future Shop has a 12-Month Xbox LIVE Gold Membership Card on sale for only $39.99, regularly $59.99. That works out to around $3.33 a month to enjoy the benefits of Xbox Live Gold.

Get free shipping on orders of $20 or more.

Pricematters Canada: Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor w/ Kinect Adventures Now $49.99

Pricematters Canada: Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor w/ Kinect Adventures Now $49.99

Want to step up your gaming with Kinect? Check put Pricematters’ deal on the Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor with Kinect Adventures – pay only $49.99 + shipping!

Shipping depends on location.

I price compared with Amazon Canada which has this listed at $149.99 and on sale for $109.83. May I note: huge price difference. Even though Pricematters gives very little (like no) information on the product, it does not appear to be refurbished as they usually are pretty good at saying so. Even if it is refurbished – this is still a really awesome deal. You are paying 1/3rd of the original price and still over 1/2 off the current retail price.

Canadian Freebies: xBox Live Gold Free This Weekend

Canadian Freebies: xBox Live Gold Free This Weekend

For the Canadian long weekend Microsoft is allowing free access to its xBox Live Gold service.

It’s good to be a Canadian on Victoria Day weekend because companies go bat-crap crazy and start pushing out some fantastic deals. This is one of them.

For the uninitiated, xBox Live Gold gives you access to all the cool online content the xBox offers. Online Multiplayer, youtube, VEVO, music, sports, movies, etc.. Just be aware that, while some of the services, such as Youtube, are free, some of them will cost you money to use. Microsoft is giving you free access to them, not free use of them.

FREE Xbox 360 with Kinect When You Activate Two Smartphones at Rogers

Posted by on April 18, 2012 at 12:00 PM

FREE Xbox 360 with Kinect When You Activate Two Smartphones at Rogers

This deal comes around different retailers (often BestBuy) every once in a while in one form or another, and always catches my eye. This particular deal is a free Xbox 360 with Kinect from Rogers if you activate two smart phones on select three year contracts. If you only activate one phone on a three year contract, you can get the xBox 360 with Kinect for $149.99.

The phones that seem to be offered are:

  • Nokia Lumia 900
  • HTC One X
  • Samsung Galaxy S II LTE
  • HTC Raider

I feel like I’ve said this before but even I, as a Playstation guy, would spring for this deal if the timing was right. The Xbox for free on its own is a good deal but adding Kinect in there seals it for me.

It should be noted that the advertisement says “Select” voice and data plans. They say it is with any couple or family plan but select could mean anything so watch out. You can check out the deal on the Rogers website or go to the store.

Xbox 360 Deal @ Amazon.ca For $130

Posted by on March 26, 2012 at 7:00 PM

Xbox 360 Deal @ Amazon.ca For $130

Amazon.ca has an amazing deal for all the gamers out there – a 4GB Xbox 360 for only $129.97 with free shipping. Regular price is $199.99. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am not a fan of the Xbox 360 (just because I’m a Playstation fanboy, not because the xBox 360 is bad) but at this price, even I’d buy one.

To price compare, this same model is $199 at The Source, Sears, Best Buy, Future Shop, and Toys R Us. Great price from Amazon!

If you aren’t down with video game systems here are some quick points of interest:

  • 4GB of storage
  • Plays DVDs and lets you access xBox Live and other services such as Netflix (Fees may apply for services)
  • Microsoft Kinect available

Graduation time is right around the corner and this would be a great gift for graduating or as an addition to a dorm room.

The Source Canada: Xbox 360 4GB Console/Kinect Family Bundle $299.99

The Source Canada: Xbox 360 4GB Console/Kinect Family Bundle $299.99

The Source Canada is offering a sweet family bundle right now for a limited time only.  This bundle is on sale for just $299.99.

Here is what you get with this Family Bundle deal:

  • Xbox 360 4 GB console with Active Kinect
  • 3 months Xbox LIVE Gold membership
  • Built in Wi-Fi
  • Kinect Sports game and Kinect Adventures game
  • 1 controller

I did some price comparisons to some other stores and found it at Best buy and EB Games for the same price but they are already sold out. (I don’t think that they included the controller though like The Source does).  The other places I looked (Walmart, Sears, Tiger Direct) had similar bundles but with less games or for more money. This tells me that this bundle is in demand for being sold out so fast and is priced properly to sell. The only place I found it in stock at the several places I looked was The Source Canada.  If you are interested in this gaming bundle, check it out at The Source.

EBGames Canada: $70 Off – Xbox 360 4GB Console Now $129.99

EBGames Canada: $70 Off   Xbox 360 4GB Console Now $129.99

EBGames Canada has the Xbox 360 4GB Console on sale for $129.99. You can order online and get it shipped for free!

I just went through checkout to check out the shipping costs, and you get free shipping – so certainly the best deal out there. Now other sites have the console on sale as well, most notably Amazon Canada, which has it priced at $134.99. However, EBGames is $5 cheaper than Amazon.

I also checked out BestBuy and Future Shop which matched EBGame’s price, but they were both SOLD OUT!

I think that this deal will sell out quickly as well, so if you want a nice XBOX console for a good price, check it out.

The Special Edition Xbox 360 250GB Console with Kinect brings games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways-no controller required.

Although the flyer doesn’t specify that this is an in store only deal, I couldn’t see any mention of it online and the Bundle is backordered for 2- 4 weeks online. The Bundle is also on sale at Future Shop for $349.99, a little cheaper, but doesn’t come with the added value of the $100 gift card.
