FYI, seller has 84.1% Positive feedback on 16,289 sales. Most of the negatives look recent, for cancelling orders for this exact item.

I'll pay the extra $10 to go somewhere else.

Ordered 2 of these on Friday, should be here this week

I almost commented that this is a duplicate from last week, but it is a different seller. This goes to show that, while still a deal, is not so great that you need to take a chance on a bad seller. 81% positive feedback is not horrible, but when other sellers have 99% positive, it may not be worth taking a chance (assuming you can wait for the next deal). Then again, eBay has a very good buyer guarantee program, so you can't go too wrong either way.

Read the comments folks, and the users feedback. Someone said 84.1% Positive feedback on 16,289 sales, well I just looked and it was 83.3% positive feedback on 368 sales

@avesharia: Sales don't mean anything towards their feedback score. They have only received ~100 feedback, if 20 of it is bad of course their score is going to be 80%. They cancelled the order because these people don't have verified PayPal accounts. Once the refund is processed their feedback will go back to 100%. This is a duplicate from 3 days ago and I've seen their score bouncing from 80-100%. They have very few sales so 1 negative review will drop their average by a pretty big amount. Also this is buy.com running an eBay storefront so you can trust them.

I think this is the third time this deal has been posted... it was discussed in rather large detail.

This is buy.com launching a microsoft outlet store on ebay. When you purchase, your e-mail receipt will also be from buy.com.

@rabidmonkeyoncrack: I don't think it's bad advice to tell people to read the reviews. The actual comments say their addresses are verified, and at any rate, I've never seen that many negative feedbacks in such a short period of time over one issue.

I'm sure folks are smart enough to figure out whether they want to spend money there. I'm still going to call out an issue where I see it.

Overall I think its worth taking the risk, this is the low end you will ever see xbox live cards.

Worst case scenario reading from the reviews you get a refund.

There are hundreds of other reviews from the same item that had great shipping and worked out fine.

@wnyx585am: This actually the same seller from the deal blast on ebay last week.

They probably had some bug with pay pal or something, or a sudden insurgence of new ebayers that didn't have there accounts verified that cause the transaction to not go threw.

@avesharia: Out of the 23 negatives I only saw 3 people that say that had verified PayPal accounts. 2 people are complaining because of their own negligence of not updating their address. The rest of the negatives are just people complaining with no basis. If you think this is a bad deal then don't go for it. This was posted 3 days ago and was upvoted to about 60. This deal is expired right now anyway. It's at $49.99, still $10 less than retail but a bad deal.

And the seller has now changed the price.
