PostSubject: AV Famicom Deal   Sun Feb 12, 2012 1:15 am

I found a good deal on an AV Famicom and bundled a game with it. I couldn't find the AV famicom loose for under $120 anywhere I looked. I finally found someone on famicom world who had one, but needed more money to sell it. He wouldn't say that up front, but if he was in no hurry to sell for $70 shipped, then I would need to make another offer. He was also selling some loose famicom games. So I offered him 70 for the console and $20 for castlevania III for the famicom and and $10 for shipping and he accepted. So here it is:

Man you're the king of bugging people until you get amazing deals. This system works perfectly? Is it yellowed at all?

My friends call me "the thrift". I hope it is not yellowed, its always hard to tell from peoples pics. I was told it works fine and if it is yellowed, i'll have to keep looking for another one.

I hate buying stuff "under the table" because if something goes wrong it's harder to damage the person's rep. If you do hire me you won't get any "thrift" action going on laughing . The only way you can save cash is by building up the system yourself, which is possible if you do your homework.

I've thought about that, but I would be more than happy to pay someone like you to do this type of work. I'll save some cash here and there on parts, but I still want you to do the job eventually. I don't feel like troubleshooting and making mistakes and spending longer than it would take you to do it.

Thanks I appreciate that. I don't need the money but I agree it makes more sense since I had to do months of trial and error and spending money to get the job this perfected.

true but sometimes its just worth the chance. i bought my second vs. gumshoe set this way and it only set me back $50.
I almost always pay a whole lot more than that.
