Amazon: Vote For Huge Console Discount
Yes indeed, the holiday deals are starting to pop up all over the place - Wal-Mart and KMart have already gotten into the game - and now, Amazon.com is offering their own deal. You'll have to get lucky with this one, but it's definitely worth looking into.
The Internet's biggest retailer is giving 1,000 consumers the chance to score either a PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or Wii for a heavily discounted price. This week, through the Amazon Customer Vote promotion, customers can visit the site and vote for one of the following: a $79 Wii, a $99 Xbox 360 Arcade, or a $139 40GB PS3. The system that gets the most votes will get the listed discount, while the other two will receive lesser price cuts. Remember, the Wii and 360 Arcade retail for $249 each while the 40GB PS3 has a $399 price tag, so those savings are big. Amazon will sell 1,000 units of the winning console at that ridiculously cheap price, so get moving! This promotion only lasts through the week.
The 1,000 randomly selected customers can visit Amazon.com on November 22 to claim their uber-cheap console. Considering the prices, we'd like to think the PS3 will be the top vote-getter, so pay attention, would-be PlayStation 3 owners!
