The Best Place to Buy a 3DS Is...

The Nintendo 3DS is the most expensive handheld in history, but it packs some pretty powerful specs under the hood along with a glasses-free 3D screen. Still, the price may have some consumers passing on a 3DS on launch day. Now you don't have to, if you use our money-saving tips, that is.
Amazon.com is offering a $25 credit toward the purchase of a 3DS game and a free credit toward a select accessory when you purchase a Nintendo 3DS. The saving doesn't have to stop there, Amazon is also offering a $10 credit with the purchase of a select 3DS game. So, you can use the $25 credit to get a game, which gives you another credit to buy another game! Confusing? Good!
If you don't feel like waiting for the 3DS to be shipped to your door, K-Mart has a similar deal that takes place at the point sale. No waiting for promotional credits, either. If you buy a Nintendo 3DS at K-Mart between March 27 and April 2, you can instantly save $25 off a 3DS launch title.
If you're upgrading your old DS, DSi or DSi XL to a 3DS, then you might want to check out GameStop instead. They're offering a $100 trade in credit when you trade in a DSi XL for a 3DS, a $75 trade in on a DSI for a 3DS, and a $50 trade in credit on regular DS models when purchasing a 3DS.
