Well, it finally happened. My eight-year-old saved up enough money from extra chores and his birthday money gifts to make a long awaited purchase. He worked so hard, doing everything from pulling weeds to helping with the laundry to earn that prize, a shiny new red Nintendo DS Lite.
All of his friends seem to already have one, but we thought it was important that he earned his, to help him understand the concepts of earning and spending. The DS seems to him so much sweeter, too, since he had to work so hard to get it.
Now of course, he is looking for games. Again, he will have to earn his way through those and make some choices. He has already said that he wants to focus on used games, since “I’ll get more for my money that way.” Being the savings momma that I am, I also pointed out the fact that he could sometimes get the latest new games for less than used ones, if he uses coupon codes and deal links.
So, I did a little bit of research, GameStop just released a bunch of online deals. And some stores are still doing the 50 percent off selected used games promotion. Of course, all of the deals aren’t for the DS but go across the video game platforms.
With GameStop, they usually have a daily deal that changes. Look for the long banner on the right of the GameStop webpage.
Here are some of the best GameStop deals.
As a bonus, you can get a $10 coupon off of a future purchase.
