MightyApe has released their pre-order details: 

 

https://www.mightyape.co.nz/product/xbox-series-x-console/30472387 

 

https://www.mightyape.co.nz/product/xbox-series-s-all-digital-console/33856647 

 

$100 non-refundable deposit, payable AFTER purchase...

 

I'm not sure how that works, since the pre-order FAQ page is not live, but the PS5 one is probably the same story here.

I am going with EBGames trade in offer this time around for Xbox. $449 is a fantastic price for a One X trade in and the staff mentioned that you may get even more trade in $ value being a silver card member but they will get that confirmed in few days time. I am happy with $449 price and not dealing with trademe selling my old console.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Still no contact from their opt in to get more details about it page from ages ago, but, same situation for JB Hi Fi as well.

That's been confirmed overseas to be the case(https://press-start.com.au/news/xbox/2020/09/10/eb-games-trade-deals-for-the-xbox-series-x-s-are-quite-good/), so, would expect this to also apply in NZ. 

 

My plan was to go straight to Level 3 (am a new member) by doing the following, and then getting more in extra trade in than the cost.

 

Members may progress straight to EB World membership Level 3 for a twelve (12) month period when they purchase a physical subscription to ‘Australian & New Zealand Game Informer Magazine’ for AUD $29.95 / NZ $39.95

 

Sadly, it looks like that option is no longer available due to the magazine stopping in AU/NZ.

Anyone know when mightyape will go live to order? Looking into the spark deal, and having to have an on account mobile with them means I probably will just buy it outright since 2 years on a spark mobile isnt something I really want to do.

That sucks regarding no more EB world memberships upgrade to Level 3. I bought it just before Xbox One few years ago now and the magazine was good read as well. I have used the card few times now as you get much better price and not dealing with trade me. Level 3 gets you another 15% trade in value so hopefully I can score the new Series X for under $400 considering I will be trading it in with a Elite controller v1.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Yeah, kinda would be nice to know what the go is with the JB HiFi one before the fact.

 

The only reason I want to go with JB is a $200 voucher I have, but it would be nice to know what the deal is with payment/deposit etc

 

Does anybody know how payment worked with the PS5 preorder there? (Which I see has since been closed due to demand)

Anyone seen Noel Leemings pre-order stuff?  If I can earn flybuys then I will go that route, especially if the price / volume etc. remains the same which it will for pre-order stuff.

Any info on the tradein T&Cs (or how it applies to pre-orders).  The webpage just says to talk to one of their staff....

Anyone know if I pre-order online can I settle a balance in store at eb games, JB hi-fi or Noel Leeming?

I've got a $200 Westfield voucher been burning a hole in my pocket, I just can't get to Westfield tomorrow morning to preorder the thing in person so would rather just do it online.

So I talked to EBGames, who basically said 'bring your tradein in when you come and pick up the console'.   I was surprised that they didnt want the original box or anything (which as a geekzone hoarder I of course have), just power cable and controller.

They sell their refurbs in their own boxes for consistancy so I would sell the orig box on trademe and hope you get a bite from a completionist, or else hang onto it incase you get a one X again at a later date.

Just remembered the entertainment book has 5% off JB hi-fi gift cards, I think I might be gifting myself $600 of vouchers to go with my Westfield voucher soon 😂

But what if JB Hi-Fi is out of stock, then you're stuck with a lot of gift cards :) Think I'm going for NL as they have $10 off and Fly Buys. And I prefer a physical store, compared to e.g. Mighty Ape.
