New Year, new deals. Out with the old in with the new, as they say. Or in this case.. both the New 3DS XL and decisively older 2DS are on sale this month from different retailers. Over at Nintendo, they’re offering refurbished units of Nintendo 2DS for only $60. Both the blue and red models are available and these are Nintendo factory refurbished units that comes with a full year of warranty.
For the New 3DS XL, GameStop has all models on sale at $175, including their exclusive Hyrule Gold Edition which they appear to still have plenty in stock (these didn’t exactly fly off the shelf like the Majora’s Mask edition New 3DS XL). Grabbing any of these New 3DS XL at GameStop online will unfortunately subject you to shipping and handling, but you can avoid the charge by ordering online and picking up in store (provided you have a GameStop nearby). Amazon is also price matching the deal for the Black/Red version of the handheld, though the Hyrule Gold Edition is of course missing in action at the giant online retailer.
While we’re on the subject of ancient shipping fee (in an era of free shipping), if you grab the 2DS deals from Nintendo Shop, you’ll be subjected to a $5 shipping and handling fee. If however you buy from Nintendo’s eBay store, you’ll get free shipping. To this strange discrepancy we can only shrug.
