    I'm hoping nobody asks me for money, because this month could see me getting one of my expensive wish list items. A 1TB PS4 is one of those.

    $129 w/SM3Dland 3dsxl looks like a good deal.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Hmm... Disney Infinity 3.0 is only $37. Might be worth picking up.

    Ooh... no matter how good the deal is, stay far FAR away from WalMart for anything you plan on spending over $20 on. I got burned, big time, when I bought a NextBook from them; after two weeks a defective chip began to literally burn a hole in the screen itself. Took it back, described the problem, and was told to basically shove off because it had been sixteen days. SIXTEEN DAYS.

    That's right- you only get 15 days before they've got your money for good, even if it's merchandise with a manufacturers defect.

    o3DS? They're all below 9.2. If it's the one I think, then it went out of production a long time ago.

    Not necessarily. The yo-kai 2ds bundle is 9.9, and if this XL is a fresh production run, it will be a high firmware too.
    We never had 3D land in an XL bundle (europe did), so it 's likely a fresh run.

    Wait what? Don't you get any kind of warranty?

    You would think so, but since it was purchased at WalMart, you run into this little snag.

    "If you purchased a product and you are not satisfied with the product, please return the product to the location you originally purchase the product. Nextbook is unable to accept any return on a product that was not purchased directly from Nextbook."

    Fun times, fun times.

    They might not be able accept a return since it wasn't sold by them, but you should be able to request a working replacement or a repair for your device under warranty assuming the issue wasn't caused by user mishandling.

    I didn't have to go to that level, thankfully; when I had initially attempted to return the product and got snapped at by a bored, snyde woman at Walmart customer service, I had a chat with the store manager. After a bit of a talk, "just this once" he ignored the fact that I had missed the return date by a bloody day. Squeaky wheel sort of thing or whatnot.
    I wouldn't try it again though.
    And every time I go in there for whatever that woman gives me a rather frosty glare.

    costumer service is just for look good to the public... "hey guys, we got a great costumer service"
    even if its the worst one, you can't say they don't have it...
    when you try to "use them", their job is either to make you go away or calm your tits down..
    i had to go to costumer service several times, every time either the dude is in a very bad mood, or i am greeted by a person that doesn't know anything about it and i leave without learning a damn thing...

    the nice ones can be the worst ones... they will shove you away with simpathy. if you are rude, you loose the reason. if you are also nice they pretend to do something and tell you either the thing you already know, or a "sorry sir, we can't blabla"

    There is no 16 day return policy on DEFECTIVE products. Pretty much everything has a 1 year warranty or more for manufacturer defects.
    I'm assuming you lost your receipt or something stupid and this is entirely your fault, and now you're crying on the internet leaving out important details to try make Walmart look bad.
    Walmart is one of those stores that has been sued SO many times they have -very- lenient policies.

    Everything you've just said is completely wrong. The return period for laptops is the same regardless of defect, I had both the reciept AND the debit card I used to make the purchase, and the result was the same.
