Sounds like you didn't apply the 25pound promotional discount? - still showing $342 for me... so tempted. I'm feeling like CGA isn't worth $120....

Right, when it's straight forward and "inside" the stated warranty timeframe, sure that's no problem, however when it's 30 days out and the CGA would have protected you...


 



Register Xbox with Microsoft online and the warranty extends to 18 months.




Do whatever you want to do man.

sweet, just purchased one.  $90 cheaper than in NZ.  

 

 

 

 

Where can you get them for $430?

 

 

 

 

with discount it came to NZD$359.72 (GBP193.33), so $100 cheaper than MA.

Did you use the amazon currency converter? Mines showing as 341.71NZD delivered payed in NZD...

 

 

 

EDIT:  Ah I think you didn't change to priority shipping, which as OP says is for some reason cheaper, lol.

Which is still well short of the at least 18 months extra the CGA would likely provide you.

Or in other words, would an 18-month extended warranty for the XBox be worth $120 (if there were no CGA)?

Don't forget it includes FIFA 17 so that could be worth $60-$80 on trade me as it just been released.

 

18 months for a console is fine, its not like the days of the Xbox 360s.

I take it this is the newest version of the Xbox one?  Given it has 4k?

 

 

 

Do these still have IR input sensors for Harmony remote control?

 

 

 

Do the codes etc above work with the other Xbox One S packages, or only the football one?

i thought you couldn't sell games on Trademe that didn't have a NZ rating sticker on it.

I've had movies which didn't have the rating stickers on them, E-Mailed Trade Me and they said it's fine. I sent them a message to make sure I was allowed to do it and that my account wasn't going to get banned etc.

 

 

 

Edit: Plus it's not like Fifa is a R18 anyway

Says it comes with FIFA17 Download, so I'm guessing it's not a physical copy anyway...?
