[USA-TX] [H] New Holiday Consoles (Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch OLED, PS5 Disc) [W] PayPal

Good afternoon r/hardwareswap.

First off, Happy Holidays.

For the past month or so I've obtained several game consoles. The objective has been to beat out scalpers or bots that buy these high-demand consoles and let people this holiday season have the chance to purchase them. I won't be seeking to profit on these sales. The goal is to see these consoles reach someone's home this holiday season as a Christmas present, or hey for yourself too!

Consoles For Sale:

* (2 Units) New Xbox Series X - Price: $575.61 + shipping

>Price detailing: MSRP $500 + $39.18 (tax) + $31.43 (time/labor/transaction fee from my end) + $5 (fee correction) + shipping = $575.61 + shipping

>One of the Xbox Series X is new open-box. I opened it just to inspect the console. It's still new and never been used (console, controller, and cables are still in packaging).

SOLD:

1x Xbox Series X to /u/iPodAddict181

1x Xbox Series X to /u/MayMay300

BONUS:

Just in time another order of an Xbox Series X I was fortunate to get a few days ago has arrived.

There's (1) additional Xbox Series X console that I'll be selecting for someone in the coming days.

Price - $575.61 + shipping

SOLD to /u/My-Roots

Timestamps of the additional Series X console seals has been added to the imgur link

* (2 Units) New Playstation 5 (Disc Edition) - Price: $575.61 + shipping

>Price detailing: MSRP $500 + $39.18 (tax) + $31.43 (time/labor/transaction fee from my end) + $5 (fee correction)+ shipping = $575.61 + shipping

Both Playstation 5 Consoles are brand new and sealed.

SOLD:

1x PS5 (Disc) to /u/MarcuuM_

1x PS5 (Disc) to /u/Iokathaz

  • (2 Units) New Nintendo Switch OLED (White) - Price: $405.04 + shipping

Price detailing: MSRP $350 + $28.87 (tax) + $21.17 (time/labor/transaction fee from my end) + $5 (fee correction) + shipping = $405.04 + shipping

Both Nintendo Switch OLED (White) consoles are brand new and sealed.

Forgot to mention, one must comment here before PM'ing and have a trade history.

I will avoid selling to resellers. I'll take my time with selling these consoles to proper buyers.

Update:

Another important note is that I've been receiving offers of $600 + shipping for the consoles. I'm flattered but I'll be sticking with the listed price for all buyers.

What I will do is enable buyers to donate more if they wish but this is separate of the console price and (obviously) optional.

PayPal Friends & Services even has a donation option in the invoice I believe, so I"ll be using that.

The proceeds of the donations will be used for toys and essential goods (blankets, food, clothing) I can purchase to donate in Holiday Food Drives.

(I'll be adding an imgur of the stuff I plan to purchase from the potential donations). Mods let me know if this okay to do if not I'll remove this option.

Thank you everyone for the support!

The consoles have to ship by December 15th or so for them to arrive in time for Christmas (or sooner).

Thanks!

Was starting to get disheartened with all the scalping/flipping going on in this sub. Thanks for restoring my faith in humanity a bit OP.

You think this is bad? Check out the sneaker market sub. $200 sneakers reselling for $2k+

Hey guys. Wow haha I've gotten a lot of messages. I'll get on reviewing them in a bit.

But first I'd like update something about the initial fee(s) of the initial post.

While calculating the total PayPal fee cost, I noticed they're slightly below making even with regards to tax costs.

I'll be upping the 'time/labor/transaction fee' to $5 more to compensate for this. Apologies for the mistake guys.

AH HA! There it is. Though you could pull a fast one on us did ya? Thinking we would stand for you scalping us when you toyed with our emotions saying you weren't! How dare you!

/s obviously... Good on you for helping people out though and hope you have an amazing holiday for whatever you choose/ don't choose to celebrate!

Good on you, OP. This world needs more people like you.

Except for that $5 increase! You son of a...

It's taking a while to read through all of the messages I've been getting.

I'll seek that by today afternoon some of you get a response back from me.

Thanks!

I don’t want to buy a console, but I do want you to post your Venmo, Cash App, or PayPal so that I can tip you for this good deed OP!
