Yep, the TD Rewards deal of the day recently was a Playstation Vita bundle including the system, the new Resistance game, and a starter bundle for $165 + tax ($186 total). That's half price.
The catch of the deal of the day is that they only have limited quantities (75 in this instance), so you have to enter into a draw to win the opportunity to buy it. I entered the draw thinking I could buy it and flip it on Kijiji. As luck would have it, I won!
I placed my order and received my Vita. I debated on whether I should keep it or put it up for sale. Finally, I decided to put it up on Kijiji.
I thought I was being reasonable putting it online for $240. I was set to make $50 profit, which isn't too bad, and people were getting a good deal at half price. Turns out, I wasn't the only one with this idea.
This guy was selling his for $298. That's way more profit than I was looking for.
This guy only wanted $290. What a deal!
$260. That's a bit more reasonable.
The bottom line is, I'm starting to wonder if anyone decided to actually keep their deal of the day Playstation Vita.
I found a lot more Vita bundles for sale, ranging from $200 to $300.
In the end, the Vita market seems saturated. Because of this, I've decided to keep my Vita. It's a pretty awesome piece of technology, it just needs some decent games.
If anyone's looking to pick up a Vita, check out Kijiji. They're every where.
