Managed to get my Xbox X order in at Walmart Canada, bestbuy canada was having serious issues but the french links worked fine as well for people lol. Now the question is do I keep my ps5 or xbox one X preorder, I might try and sell the one I dont
yup, I had best buy, walmart, eb games, microsoft and amazon all open logged in and credit card info saved (all Canadian versions)Granted, right now things are especially tough, but preparation helps with buying in-demand items online. Maybe not enough to beat bots, but you'll at least make a fight of it.
Have multiple tabs with multiple retailers open. Have your account setup and payment info already there if possible. Don't be afraid to go obscure. If you're using PayPal, make sure you're already signed in on another tab.
If there's a "one click" buying option - do it.
Use your phone, too. At least in the case of Target, their app is way quicker than the desktop app. If you're on an iPhone, buying is borderline instantaneous.

Microsoft crashed and errored out at the add to cart stage for me
Best buy's links didnt work (in english, turns out the fench links worked fine though)
Amazon.ca preorders still aren't up
I dont trust eb games so they were my last resort
but walmart was golden, I refreshed the xbox one X page right at 8et and the pre-order button lit up. Added it to cart and clicked check out with pickup at my local store and it worked great, now sitting in my orders with the status "in progress". never ordered online from walmart before so it will be interesting but it should be fine.
I'd call them and ask, My issue isnt theft its that my address is super close to another one and alot of parcel and mail goes there instead so I always try and get store pickup. So far my biggest loss was a $1200 projector, thankfully amazon is awesome and sent me a new one after I reported it.Is it possible to switch over from shipping to address to shipping to a store, post purchase?
My apartment complex has recently been victim to FedEx and UPS having shipments fall off their trucks, if you know what I mean. Plus, neither gets here until late at night, where I assume the store I'd be able to acquire it before I went to work.
Gamestop's preorders just went live. They aren't allowing you pre order the console by itself. They're making you package it with accessories and games.
Fuck you, Gamestop. I ain't doing that shit with you.
I'm just SOL then. Oh well.When I got through earlier today (about 90 mins ago), you could still get just the console itself. The same with the PS5. The problem is, most people go after that than the bundle which has 20 accessories and games you're never going to play in the first place.
You should cancel that Geek Squad Protection and get Microsoft's. Best warranty ever. $49 for 3 years of accidental coverage. I went into a Microsoft Store last year because my One X was powering off. It was out of warranty so I was prepared to pay for a refurbished unit. The store didn't have a refurb available so for the "inconvenience" they unboxed a brand new one and give it to me for no charge. I was in shock and it felt like I hit the lottery. Then they offered the warranty and I didn't hesitate. I came in like 6 months after with my controller since there was something wrong with it and they just gave me a brand new one in exchange. I think the warranty covers 2 free controller replacements or something.
So anyway... amazing experience with the Microsoft warranty and the actual Microsoft Store (R.I.P.)
That's hilarious. Just read his signature.That's Mike211, he doesn't talk outside of posting pics of his purchases, hence the mod quote in his signature. If there was a lifetime GeekSquad warranty, more expensive variant of the console that was identical otherwise, or any other add-on options with the purchase (however useless), he would have bought that as well, probably just for the pic.
Seems their bots may have snatched some One X consoles as wellScalpers have gone crazy this week. These fuckers are the worst.
I was able to get a series x from 2 different retailers, providing one doesn't get canceled, it could wind up a Christmas gift, or I may just sell one to help pay for the other. It's worth whatever someone is willing to pay.Is $50 over my cost really egregious?
I pre ordered one and a PS5 to have time to choose. I think it's going to be the PS5.

been seeign a few of these on reddit and I hate you all, being in Canada I don't think we even have these contests Congrats though, if you dont have gamepass yet make sure you go to the deals section and take advantage of the super cheap 3 year gamepass deal.
