As of now, 70% of all major retailers in U.S have already posted their doorbuster deals; likewise, you can already smell the Black Friday fever creeping from your local retailer. And we’re roughly down to nine full days only!
For buyers looking for the best deals on Xbox 360, Kinect and video games, browsing through all the flyers could be quite intimidating – just numbers here and there with a dollar sign from the left; hence, we create this little Black Friday guide for humans so you’ll know what particular retailer will sell the best Xbox 360 bundles during Thanksgiving. Take note, our list was taken down from 10 retailers (e.g: AAFES, Best Buy, Kmart, RadioShack, Sam’s Club, Sears, Shopko, Target, Toys R Us and Walmart). Enjoy!
Best $199 Deal
Best Buy: Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle with 250GB Console, Skyrim + Forza Motorsport 4, Wireless Headset, Wireless Controller at $199.99
Sam’s Club: Xbox 360 Bundle With 4GB Console, Kinect Sensor, Disneyland Adventure + Kinect Adventure games, Wireless Controller and 1-month Xbox Live Membership at $199.
Target: Xbox 360 Bundle with 4GB Console, Kinect Sensor, Kinect Adventures + Disneyland game, wireless controller and 1 month Xbox Live membership at $199.99
Shopko: Xbox 360 Bundle with 250GB Console & Wireless Controller at $199.99
Kmart: Xbox 360 Bundle With 4GB Console, Kinect Sensor at $199
Our Take: At $199, Best Buy is certainly the king with its 250GB console bundle complete with 2 free games, controllers even a free wireless headset! As the shop says, it’s a $408 bundle shrunk down to half of its original price. What more can you ask for?
Then of course, we have Sam’s Club and Target offering an identical set of deals which is the best bundle for Kinect with X360 at two benjamins only.
Meanwhile, the last remaining came from Kmart and Shopko. Their deals are average but could still be an eye-candy for those who have these shops near their area.
How About Less Than $170?
Walmart: Xbox Skylanders Bundle With 4GB Console, Wireless Controller & Skylander Bundle at $149
RadioShack: Xbox 360 Bundle With 4GB Console, Wireless Controller and Free Headset at $169.99
Our Take: Walmart is wise enough not to cut-throat Best Buy with its $199 super deal for X360. Instead, it pushed other deals like that Skylander bundle at $149. Meanwhile, we’re glad to see RadioShack offered some minty deals for Xbox 360 this year offering a complete package including a wireless controller and headset all at $170 only.
Walmart: Xbox Dance Bundle With 4GB Console, Kinect Sensor, 2 Wireless Controllers & Kinect Disneyland + Kinect Adventures at $229
Sears: Xbox 360 Bundle With 4GB Console, Kinect Sensor at $219
Toys R Us: Xbox 360 Bundle with 4GB Console, Kinect sensor, Air Flo Controller & 50% off For 3 Month Xbox Live Membership at $249.99
Our Take: For those who want to spend a few more bucks on Black Friday, we’re telling you right now that it’ll be worth it.
If Best Buy was the king at $199, Walmart is god at $229 offering a complete package consisting of X360 console, Kinect, 2 free games and 2 controllers — a bundle that cost around $450 given to you for only half its original price.
Meanwhile, Sears offers a lukewarm approach of listing X360 + Kinect Sensor at $219 which is not the cheapest deal but better than its regular price. Finally, we have Toys R Us. Yeah, self-explanatory.
