EB games was having a PS3 bundle for $250 just yesterday, I was able to trade in my Wii for $100 and games, making it only about $110. The PS3 was 320GB and it came with the Dance game, infamous2 or uncharted 3

My brother wants to get an iPhone 4 (not 4S) for boxing day and I see that Rogers is offering it for $0 with a contract of course. Any Rogers sales reps/Wireless Wave/BB/etc. willing to chime in on this?

From Rogers website:

We got a brand new 70" Sharp for $2400 including taxes locally... like 3 weeks ago.

lol pretty good deal. Doubt you'd even find that on boxing day.

sony says they're not going to bring out the ps4 early simply to match when the other companies are releasing theirs and they feel the ps3 has legs for quite some time yet

and they're satisfied with how the ps3 has done even though it was initially behind the xbox its not anymore (par? ahead? close enough? dunno)

so dont expect a ps4 for a few more years

you'll likely be waiting until 2014

but the 320GB Uncharted 3 bundle with God of War 3 + Metal Gear Solid 4 for $285 was probably the best deal this holiday for that console.

no, online only. you order online and have the option of picking it up. they generally ask that you pick it up after boxing day too.

Pretty choked that I missed out on the online FS/BB sale. Was hoping to grab myself a bunch of new blus for under $5.

WRONG, this is not a 2010 model. This is the "early 2011" model, the current model is "late 2011" selling for $1249.

I purchased a refurb of the early 2011 over a month ago for $980. To me $999 for a brand new one is a good deal. If you compare the specs on the early vs late 2011 models for 13" then differences are negligible. If you do the same comparison for the 15" model that is a different story.

I say pull the trigger and get the $999 one. Also pickup up some extra RAM, 8GB for around $50.

I like the LG Cinema3D LED TVs, 55" on sale for $1189 at FS, and $1349 for a bundle at Costco. Pretty good, comes with Bluray player, a few movies, 2yr warranty, 90 day return and 2% back (if you have executive membership).


Costco - LGŪ 55LW5300 55-in. Cinema 3D* 1080p LED LCD HDTV** with Blu-ray

Every store is different, the bigger the store the more door crashers they'll be allocated. Larger stores typically receive around 120 of the largest door crasher TVs in store, but it's entirely possible that they'd sell you one that's in the warehouse for pick-up from there/delivery. If you opt for pick-up, wait till at least the 29th if you don't want a long wait.

Dynex and Insignia TVs are not worth purchasing in my honest opinion, the picture quality is absolute garbage, spending the extra bit for a name brand is well worth it.
