Anyone else pickup the Xbox 360 4gb deal?

I waited till 6pm. Went to the supermarket, bought the paper and took the advert into The Warehouse. Price matched immediately. No crowds/queues/waiting :)

Going to get the $99 Kinect deal from DSE tomorrow. Have a spare HDD enclosure for it here(Ebay $10NZD) and got a free 320gb drive from a vendor(Xmas present). So will dismantle that, then I'll have a Xbox360 320gb with Kinect for $283 all up :)

Deal was:

$172 for an Xbox 360 S 4Gb package from Bond and Bond

was on about page 6 of the Dominion Post(and probably similar papers throughout the country)

Holy crap that is cheap. Wonder if I can get that deal. Been thinking about ditching my Falcon 360 for a while. Use it as a media player and it is so loud. Is the new model ones really quiet? Wonder how I can get one here in Alexandra that cheap. We have a Warehouse but not sure if they will match it.

Should be able to? I'm guessing check todays Southland Times?  I was in Hamilton this morning and the Waikato News had it, then decided to get my Dom Post at the airport and hit the nearest Warehouse

New ones are whisper quiet.  Slightly quieter than my PS3 Slim that sits next to it

I'm pretty sure they should honour their "lowest price in NZ guaranteed"?  as that's what they put my discount as.  i was actually in there to try get a Huawei S7 Slim for $199, but they were out of stock, so I tried much luck at the Xbox instead

Right now I'm looking at

http://www.thewarehouse.co.nz/red/catalog/product/Telecom-XT-V9-Tablet?SKU=1511660

Most likely go out and pick one up tomorrow :) Read up a little and I know its a older version of the Android OS but I'm ok with that not used a Android before and mainly want it to read eBooks and Comics so should be worth it :) well I'm sure I'll use it to check emails and browse the net when not at my computer and such also.

Shame I missed that Acer Tablet deal on 1-Day.

Well now you've gone and done it, I'm gonna be in trouble when the mrs finds out! The staff here had to get the supervisor over but he was happy to do it. He looked up the cost price and told me it was $285 lol! What a steal, man that has to be the best deal this boxing day. Already set it up and just about to watch a tv show. Definitely a lot quieter, can't hear the fans at all.

Discount offer begins 6pm Saturday 24th December 2011 and ends 12pm Wednesday 28th December 2011 or while stocks last

I'm in trouble with the wife also.  She's currently away, but wants me to sell one of the playstations now :(

@JBard

Hopefully someone else can scan one up for you, unfortunately I had to give the full page to the Warehouse in order to redeem it :(, otherwise I'd definitely scan it up for you

Says Wednesday on my paper.

I couldn't find it on Bond and Bond website. You are probably going to have to track down a copy of todays paper.

Edit: If a scan works I can scan it tomorrow at work.

Think I will buy a kinect tomorrow at DSE too. $99 isn't too bad. That way I might be able to fool the wife into thinking it has a constructive purpose. She likes doing zumba so hopefully that works ok with it.
