get $100 gift card when you buy a PS3s at Wallyworld

Thought I would share. I just picked one up at lunch. They might have a limited supply. I'm not a big gamer but got it since I can also play bluray movies. If you have been holding out like me, this might be the time to jump on one.

Question. Walmart offers a 2 yr service plan on it. Should I get it? I havent yet, but they said I could go back and get it within 30 days. I've heard of people having issues with PS3s which makes me nervous. Would that be a Sony warranty issue, or would that be where a service plan would be a big help?

Did they change it? I thought it was just $100 towards buying blu-ray movies?

I'm confused. I tried to read the terms and conditions and nowhere does it state what happens if you get the PS3 then return it. I highly doubt they let you pocket the $100 giftcard.

Conditions:
*Limited quantities available on Gift Cards. For online use only, Gift Cards are non-refundable.

Let me know, when I read about it over the weekend it noted that it was for blu-ray purchases only. Otherwise it's a pretty good deal, because Wal-mart money is basically like cash..

At Best Buy we are price matching the wally world gift card with our own, but yes if you return the PS3 you have to return the gift card otherwise you can't return the system. That's pretty much a given for any store.

Is that nation-wide or just your store?

It's a nation wide price match on the gift card. And no it's not a blu-ray only gift card, it's just a straight up Best Buy gift card.

How do I go about obtaining this price match? Do I have to bring in some sort of Wal-Mart ad? This might be the perfect time for me to pick up a console.

I called in and she said yes they are doing it nationwide. I would go to CS and say the pricematch and its online at walmart.com. B&M also have it.

Buy the one on sale and use the gift card for a hard drive larger than 120gig.

Is it a store gift card or is it for online only?

Yeah, ended up using the $100 gift card for Guitar Hero III (which they had to price match for $75 from BB.com), an extra controller, and a DVD remote control. We also had $150 in Best Buy gift cards saved up from Christmas... score.

They had to make a separate transaction for the accessories in order to use the free gift card.

What issues have you heard of? I've had mine for 6 months now and (knock on wood) no issues, but I'm interested in seeing what issues there are.
