Wal-mart’s Secret In-Store Special: Part II
The latest deal from the mega retailer does include both the HD A3 and the 40gb PS3, but isn’t nearly as sweet as we’ve come to expect from ole’ Wally World.
The 40gb PS3 is being sold for $399.99 with a $50 gift card. While it’s certainly not stellar it’s better than paying the same amount and getting no freebies, right?
On the other hand, the A3 is being sold for a mere two dollars below retail, at $298.00, which is far from the incredible A2 deal they loosed back in the beginning of November. However, they are sweetening the pot substantially by tossing in an additional five movies of your choice at the time of purchase, which brings the free disc total up to 12. Of course, the other seven free discs should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been following the format war – two in the box (presumably Bourne Identity and 300), five via mail-in-rebate – but regardless this is a nice bonus, and it might just be the most free movies we’ve seen thrown in with a next gen disc player to date.
It would have been nice to see the price drop to somewhere below Amazon’s previous promotion, or at the very least match their offer, but it will be interesting to see whether or not consumers will wake up early on Friday to take part in the latest promotion.
