I really want a 3ds, but my mom says i cant get one if it is 250$ because it is too much.
I live in canada, so would anyone know where to find one in NA that is less or around 200$?

Sorry to say, it is $249 everywhere in America, though some retailers are offering free bonuses, such as a game or a carrying case.

Though I don't like buying used computers and gadgets your best option would be to purchase a used Nintendo 3DS from GameStop.

Yeah, I'm not much of a "used" system fan either, but sometimes it has to be dealt with. Or just beg her.

Find a Shoppers Drug Mart that sells the system and buy it when they have a 20x Optimum event. They do the events about once a month. You'll get about 50,000 Optimum points for buying it, which can be redeemed for about $85 of merchandise, or $100 on a bonus redemption days, or they've even had super redemption days where 50,000 points got you $125 of merchandise. It's the best deal I know of for buying a 3DS system in Canada.

If you're into shopping around for used consoles, you can find one for $200 or thereabouts (maybe cheaper) pretty easily. Don't bother checking your local EB Games, try the oddball non-chain video game stores.

I see them often in the $200 range or slightly less due to clueless types (or probably just thieves of new merchandise) posting them up on craigslist. I think in CA it's kijiji that's the same like service which gets more use than CL does (just as that one gets little use here vs craigslist.) If you can deal with used or stolen new that may be an option.

I hope your just kidding tanookisuit !!!
Thats a very bad advice....
Other than that you should check the voltages but as i saw for now the cheapest prices they seem to have in the uk.
Always great deals and much going on over there.
Or go to search machines and look up price compare sites.

The only thing I can suggest is maybe trade in some games that you dont want or play anymore and see if that will bring it down to $200. Either that or maybe come up with $50 on your own. Unfortunately its still pretty new so you are not going to find much cheaper the $250. You might be able to find one used but it wont be much cheaper and I dont think it will be $200 or less.

There are several on ebay in that price range. Most are used, but there are a few new ones where sellers are hoping they will be able to attract bidders.

Wouldn't encourage someone to buy stolen new. Didn't Microsoft track stolen 360s when clueless individuals tried to sign them onto XBL?

I still think the Shoppers Drug Mart route is the best, but if you do have games to trade in I'm pretty sure EB Games is giving $25 credit toward hardware for any game with an $8 trade-in value, so if you could gather up several of those it would help a lot. The problem is they're so cheap on trade-ins that pretty much any game with a $8 trade-in value is a game you could sell used for $25 yourself, so you're not really saving anything other than the trouble of selling the games.
