Today’s deal of the day nets you a Sony PS3 for $100 off. But it’s probably only a reasonable option if you’re a regular Amazon customer and don’t mind floating them that Benjamin. As it just so happens, I am and I don’t. So I just placed an order for one of my boxes of the year. The unit runs for nearly $300 and here are details on the $100 credit:
Order the PlayStation 3 160 GB and receive a $100 promotional credit toward the purchase of items shipped and sold by Amazon.com (certain exclusions apply, including Kindle books, MP3s, and video rentals and downloads). The promotional credit will be added directly to your Amazon.com account within two days after your order ships.
Not only is the PS3 a highly competent gaming platform, minus funky controller ergonomics and missing bundled headset, but it’s also quite capable as a home entertainment set-top — featuring Blu-ray playback, Netflix streaming, Vudu HD VOD, and Hulu Plus. All without requiring a humongo power brick or annual subscription (compared to my Xbox 360). Once the $100 credit hits, I’ll pick up the official Bluetooth remote control (~$20).
If you too are prone to impulse purchases, when the deal is favorable, click on thru to Amazon. ZNF thanks you.
