I noticed today that the previous $50 Xbox 360 promo credit deal is back on at Amazon and Best Buy for most of the Xbox 360 consoles.
The 250GB holiday bundle is the equivalent to $200 including credit... looks to be the same deal at Amazon and BB, not sure if other retailers will follow yet. Around BF, I expect the same sort of deals, but with cash instead of credit, but if you don't want to wait, and consider Amazon credit the same as real cash, it may be a good deal now.

I believe the E model is the newest version, so I'd go with that. It's a bit smaller and quieter from what I have read.

Toys R Us appears to running the same deal. Buy a Xbox 360 in store, get $50 promo gift card.

And through BB, there is the 5% in rewards, and I believe Discover has 5% back in their shopping portal for BB (or at least used to).
I have Chase MileagePlus Explorer card. How do I sign up to get 5% back on Amazon purchases? Where do I sign up for this? Yeah, the tax sucks. TIA This is for the Freedom only.

Good deal, although I obviously wish it was applicable on the Xbox One. I doubt we will see any deals on those for a while.

GameStop is having a Black Friday Sale where the 250GB 360 which I want to buy will be $199. I'll wait. Otherwise I would have jumped on this.

Yeah, although some people would prefer cash over credit. To me, Amazon credit = cash, so it doesn't matter much either way. Amazon would make more sense for those who don't pay tax at Amazon, or have Chase Freedom and want 5% back.
The ToysRus comment above is interesting, although when I checked their website I didn't see any mention of $50 credit for instore purchases. If we could pair that up with some ToyRus coupon or rewards, it could be a bit cheaper. If Newegg does this again, it'd probably be cheapest for me personally, as there is no tax for me from Newegg, unlike most other stores.
And I see Newegg is offering the same deal now too. Expires 11/9.
Anyone here ever use price protection with their credit card before? I'm wondering if it's worth getting now, and if it happens to go lower during BF, just go the price protection route. But would the $50 credit confuse things or make the item ineligible for some reason?
