this seems too good to be true.... anyone had any encounters with these guys? the BBB gives them an F but yahoo ratings gives it like 4.5/5 ... hmm

@qkall: I think you answered your own question there.

I'm always suspicious when the "PayPal Verified" seal is not clickable like it is supposed to be, and when a reseller has no history on ResellerRatings.com.

They do have contact information for the company, which is a plus (obviously I haven't verified that any of it is accurate). If you are considering a sizable purchase (and this deal is, IMO, sizable) you might want to give them a call and ask them a question - see how they respond, if they answer the phone or reply to email at all.

Try re-sorting the merchant reviews and reading through them - I find that sorting them from oldest to newest or worst to best to be helpful, but then again I'm the kind of buyer who runs away screaming at the first sign of danger. I'd rather pay 1% more to Newegg.com or Amazon and know that I'm safe...

@qkall: I ordered an Xbox game from them last Wednesday afternoon and it arrived by Saturday with no problems (they are in NV, I am on the east coast). Although they did say it would ship with FedEx Ground and it shipped through the USPS. Not a big deal I guess. I did pay with PayPal also. I was happy with them.

I ordered a Kinect through them. Got a great deal, received it in a couple days. If I needed a new Xbox, I would jump on this deal in a minute.

This is Acebeach himself.

During Christmas the Walmarts were selling these exclusive 4gb Bundles with the games Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Mass Effect.

We have a few left, and have had a hard time selling lately.

As far as our BBB rating goes, it was a mistake our company had made that the BBB didn't get over, and still haven't been able to resolve it.

Any other questions? I am always ready to answer.

I actually trust BBB less than several other ratings systems.

@demonsndynamite: I would think so. I have never seen a "4GB" branded Xbox that wasn't a slim Xbox.

Plus it has 5 USB ports, which only the new Slim models have.

Fwiw, I have dealt with @acebeach once. I got their Kinect deal few weeks ago. They were very prompt and nice to deal with. I got confirmation of shipment, and it reached home safely.

@qkall: The BBB is not to be trusted. I saw it on 20/20. Or maybe Dateline.

Either way, the BBB has turned into a scama-lama-dingdong. I know that doesn't help any, just something to keep in mind :)

(edit)
Just to elaborate, it's basically turned into "Pay us money, or we will give you a sh*tty rating." They actually gave perfect scores to terrorist organizations and some other fake people. You can probably Google it :D

I also dealt with this company recently. I bought the excellent deal they had on a Kinect and it arrived quickly and exactly as it was described. Absolutely no problems whatsoever

vote-for1vote-against

Is this really that good of a deal??
If I look around the Web I can piece this package together for virtually the same price, maybe even 10.00 cheaper.
I spose if those were exactly the games you were looking for.

vote-for1vote-against

I ordered the Kinect from them recently and was happy with my purchase and their shipping, etc. I'm as hesitant as the next guy but I would not worry about this company. Plus, you cannot beat that they actually care enough to post in this forum.

1. great price. $180 for a new slim xbox with built in wifi and 4gb is more than fair. Regular retail is $199. COD MW2 is still worth at least $24.99 to $34.99, and mass effect 2 is worth a few bucks as well... if you go used, you can beat this price, but if you can find this exact combo of system & games for under $180, please post details here.

2. reseller ratings is not necessarily to be trusted... business have to pay them every month if they want to post a reply to any customer complaints.

@acebeach: I'm buying this for a kid that's too young for any of the games. Are you selling it anywhere without the games?

vote-for1vote-against

@jaikele:
you can trade the games on craigslist pretty easily if you're anywhere near a major city.

Ill buy the call of duty! lol... I got the 250 version of this xbox... love it. I also bought the kinect from ace when it was forsale... great deal and my girl loves it, SHAZZZZZZZAM! But for real Ill buy your call of duty if u buy it lol

i wounder if acebeach is using fake accounts to boast there sales by saying
" i bought a kinect from these guys and they were promtp and nice i seen the same comment like 5 times already

vote-for1vote-against

@kellicaiden: nah, they (acebeach) seem legit. That's more like a tactic that those scammers @ GEARXS use.

vote-for1vote-against

@kellicaiden: Every poster that's commented joined on a different date. And some even have some Woot reputation they've built up. Plus, when the seller himself is open for questions, it's generally taken as a sign of good faith. If anything, you're using PayPal so no credit card info to worry about. Not a shill... just saying...

I'd jump on this if I hadn't recently upgraded my computer for gaming. Might change my mind soon >.>

As long as you can pay with paypal, than you can usually trust them for at least providing for services rendered. Just make sure you keep your emails, or print what you are buying. Paypal/Amazon Payments/Google Checkout always works for us buyers in the end.

vote-for1vote-against

If you use the same coupon code you can also either get a none retail boxed Kinect for 120 (without the game) or a retail one with the game for 135.

@kamikazeken: i used gearxs ONCE... i got a really good deal on wireless adapter for a computer and it was really broken when I got it.

vote-for0vote-against

Oh, wow...

Such response. We only had a few of these and this became popular overnight.

We may have to cancel a few of these orders. Sorry for the problem.

Feel free to call if you have any questions.

vote-for1vote-against

I don't get why this deal would be "too good to be true". The Kinect bundle is $299.99 most places (Amazon included). If these are the two games you were looking for anyway and you aren't interested in getting the Kinect, it's a deal. Kudos to acebeach for hanging around to answer questions.

vote-for1vote-against

acebeach- me needs xbox 360, but was too late to the thread :(

Will you guys be having any similar deals soon?

vote-for0vote-against

@acebeach hope it's not mine, was also go to scoop up that kinect later this week or early next week.

vote-for1vote-against

just wanted to add, I bought their Kinect deal for $110 they had a few weeks ago, it arrived pretty quickly and I had absolutely no problems with any part of the transaction. I was sceptical at first too but so far they seem pretty legit.

vote-for1vote-against

Uh my acct is legit... I really did buy a kinect from them... Go look at some of my other posts if you dont believe it... too many haters

vote-for0vote-against

Wow. That was a joke. Not only did the store fail to notify me of a payment issue, but they also decided to cancel my order and give it to someone else. That's fantastic customer service right there. Seems like those negative ratings were right after all.

vote-for1vote-against

My order got canceled and I got a refund. :<

I'm a bit sad, but I understand, you only had a few left.
Oh well.

vote-for0vote-against

Sorry for all customers who had to have their items cancelled because we were unprepared for the flood of orders that came in for this product.

However we do extend another deal that we posted on Deals not long ago.

http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/ec4e37ce-6547-4156-a15f-1b5dbc4e22fa/xbox-360-250gb-console-wireless-controller-1-year-console-warranty#0

Please call us at 1877-821-2734 and we will give you an extra deal on top of this one for customers who had to have their order cancelled.
