The biggest deals are probably going to be around Black Friday. But given how that starts earlier and earlier, someone might have an "Early Black Friday" sale by then!

Genuine deals may be hard to come by. If buying new, the best you'll probably do is the same $199 price but paired with bonus accessories or maybe a bonus gift card to the store you purchased from.

Nintendo is selling refurbished 3DS XL units directly now. They're down to $169 or $179 if you want a 16GB SD card with it:

According to this forum:

You're a week late to a $175 sale at Target. If you lived near a Meijer, you could price match that and use a Meijer general coupon to get it down to $149.
