I can get a better deal at the pawn store! $99 includes 2 controllers a game and a 6 month warranty!

this is wrong. the link shows that it's the elite version with the 120 gb. title and information needs to be fixed.

Yeah RKB-00001 are $129. http://www.cowboom.com/product/941500

Either way, for $115 you get a "Grade 4, significant scratches or scuffs", busted up, used X-Box with no controller?? Am I missing something? This doesn't seem like much of a deal.

You are correct. Bad deal either way.

They have a two year additional warranty...

All the haters find better deals yet they do not post them at fatwallet hmnn they are just leaches?

Microsoft RKB-00001 XBOX 360 4GB Console 109 + Free Shipping


Great deal, why all the red?

Ever since CowBoom sent me a destroyed Blu Ray player I view their 'deals' in a whole new light. If something like that blu ray player wasn't inspected, refurbished or even plugged in before they shipped it, there's no way in hell I'd ever buy a console from them. Keep in mind 'scratched' means 'looks like someone took a rake to it'.

I have no problem "hating" on bad deals...any day of the week. This significantly used one, is a prime example. Dry those eyes, OP...and better luck next time.

Yes, a reputable business will include a packing slip, not just pack and ship like some shoddy eBay sellers.

I'd take a product that didn't look like it was beat to a pulp without a packing slip...over one with, any day.

It's always good to let us know all the details.
Here you go.


Pre-owned

- Fully functional
- May show limited signs of use
- May be missing parts or accessories
- May have dents or scratches

Pretty misleading post OP - it is used and not new. You need to be clear and specific about all the details.

Also note, this is a pre-slim xbox 360 so even if it wasn't used, there's a high change of dreaded "red ring of death". As much as I love my xbox, I don't recommend getting a used pre-slim xbox.

wino4ever said:   if this deal is not for you then why post? you all offer the negatives But do not offer alternatives... As I see it, the point of FW is not just about good deals, but learning about products and assessing whether something really is a good deal or not. If I didn't know much about the product, I would WANT people to comment both positives and negatives to help me decide whether something is a good deal or not. If I want someone to tell me that something is a good deal, without any information or comparisons, I'll just go look at an ad.

Since you asked for alternatives... for comparison sake the last two holiday seasons, we've seen the current generation xbox 360 (slim w/ 4gb) for $150 new. Is $40 extra worth it for new vs used, slim vs fat, warranty vs no warranty? In my opinion, most definitely yes, but you'll have to decide that on your own.

To compare apples to apples, I just did a quick search for used xbox (fat) on craigslist and I'm seeing many posts in my area (SF Bay Area) for these w/ games in the $80-$100 range.

We are here to help other FatWallet members.
It is important they know whether or not the "deals" posted here are deals or not.
Some newbies might think that just because someone posts something in the the "deals" section it is actually a deal.
