Ask the travel experts: When is the best time to buy plane tickets?

1600 marketplace points for $12.99 at Circuit City!

CCWe're not big fans of posting "deals," but Jiminey Christmas this is a good one! Circuit City has Xbox 360 marketplace cards (1600 pts) on sale for an astoundingly low $12.99 (regularly $29.99).

For those of you that are math challenged, that's over 50% off!

This is a web only special and we do not know how long it will last.

Get over there now and get some deep-discounted goodness. You owe it to yourself after selling your soul for the console and a few launch games.

Has anyone looked at what Wal*Mart wants online? $39.99! Insane! But EB and GameStop only want $19.99. Still, it's a great deal.

Is this a electronic order? or is it a product actually shipped? reason I ask is because of being outside the US... if it was an online/electronic order only where you receive them via email it would work fine for me...

I think it'll actually ship them, but I couldn't get that far since it wants a US Zip (I'm in Canada). Too bad. :D

THIS IS FALSE, THE RETAIL PRICE OF THE CARD IS $19.99. So you save $7.

Well, it is not entirely false. It is listed at CC for 29.99. Other reatilers have it listed at 39.99. And, yes, it looks like you can get it other places for 19.99. Anyway you slice it though, it is a substantial SAVINGS off of the lowest available price!

Edwin,

We assume it is a web only special because it says "Web Only Special" on the page. If you went into a store to buy it without ordering for store pick-up via this special web page, you would be paying CC's full price.

Yeah Edwin I see the same thing, maybe they took it down. I'll try with the printed page later today in store, they "sometimes" match it, or atleast Best Buy may.

When I bought mine it allowed me to get it shipped or in-store. I just had to add it to the cart, but they must be out of stock, might be why the price is back up too. FYI, I had mine shipped.

I dont see why they didn't just make it simple and you buy a $20.00 card and it puts $20.00 on your Marketplace account and downloads just cost actual money. Just like Microsoft had to pull the "block" crap on the XBOX instead of just using the Gigabytes or Megabytes.
