Office Depot offers Premium Xbox 360 for $300, sorta

Posted by Wolfgang Gruener

Office Depot’s most recent Sunday ad offers shoppers a Microsoft Xbox 360 Premium console (including a 20 GB hard drive and a wireless controller) for $299.99, which is $50 below the current suggested retail price of $349.99. So, what’s the catch?

Well, the usual: There’s a $50 mail-in-rebate, which means that you are paying taxes on the $349.99 and, as it was the case with previous discount offers from Office Depot as well, this Xbox is not available in stores (you still have to order the console in store, though), but will be shipped to your door step. And yes, shipping and handling are extra.
