XBox Live: As Little As $18

Depending on how much effort you are willing to put in, a good deal at Buy.com today can turn into an amazing deal at Buy.com tomorrow.

Buy.com today has a 13-month card for Xbox Live (12 months, plus a 1 month free bonus) for just $38.59, with free shipping. That’s a really good deal all by itself, over ten bucks off the regular $50 price. However…

New users of Google Checkout can get an additional ten dollars off, making the final price $28.59, again with free shipping. Now we’re talking almost half off. However…

Buy.com offers a special promotion on the Shopping Cart page. With this promotion, you get a free one-year subscription to a magazine of your choice (either weekly TV Guide or monthlies Maxim, Redbook, Blender or Computer Shopper). Now, that’s a good deal, getting Xbox Live for $28.59 plus a free magazine subscription. However…

If you decline the magazine offer after you make your purchase and mail in a rebate form along with a copy of your receipt, you get ten dollars back. That means your final price: $18.59, with free shipping.

You gonna get a better deal anywhere else? Of course not! Now, you may not be able to get the magazine offer when purchasing through Google Checkout. I’d check with Buy.com before the purchase, or complain after it, and you might get it. If you don’t, $28.59 is a great deal. If you do, either enjoy your magazine or enjoy the $18.59 deal. Also, if you can’t get the Google Checkout promotion, the $10 magazine rebate is just as good. No matter which way, you’re a winner, and you saved a bunch.
