MobShop has the Dreamcast starting at the regular $199.99, but if enough people buy it, it can go as low as $189.99.
If you go through PointClick.com you can get 10% off your purchase at MobShop.
If you use a Visa card, you get $25 dollars off a $100+ purchase.
Sega is giving $50 dollar rebats to people who buy a Dreamcast and sign up for a 30 day trial of their online service, SegaNet.
Also, supposedly CobaltCard (some debit card thing aimed at teenagers which can be used like a visa card) gives you $20 dollars credit, but I went to the site and couldn't find anything about this.
Anyways, the lowest price that you could pay with these deals in combination is $75.99 and MobShop has free shipping (and I didn't pay taxes on my last order)
Even if that CobaltCard thing is BS and the buy-cycle at MobShop does not get to its lowest point, you will only pay 104.99 which is still pretty darn good. I haven't done this deal because I don't have any extra money to get a Dreamcast right now, but I thought I would share it with all of you.
Here is the step by step process:
<LI>Go to CobaltCard.com and sign up for their card (skip this step if there is no $20 deal)
<LI>Go to PointClick.com and register.
<LI>Go to their listing for Computers/Electronics and click on the MobShop link.
<LI>Click on the Entertainment link on Mobshop, then video game consoles, and then the Dreamcast.
<LI>Buy the Dreamcast with your Visa Card (or your CobaltCard if that deal is true)
<LI>Go to this link to find out how to get your $25 rebate from Visa.
<LI>Go to this link to find out how to get your $50 dollars back from Sega.
Have fun jumping through all those loops and enjoy your Dreamcast (I wish I could).

Wow, you sure went through a lot of trouble to type all that..cool for those of you looking to buy a DC, i got rid of my DC a few weeks after I bought it..
How come? The DC is starting to get a lot of really good games out now...
yeah and they are getting real cheap too, especially with that KBKids deal last week. I would get one if it was REAL cheap, like $50. But for now i'm happy with PC games cause warez are the cheapest.
a) Needed the money..always need the money
b) Other than Gundam Side Story I can live without those games
c) waiting for PS2
There's more, of course, but the rest are just "smaller" things

BTW, Cobalt Card is not doing the $20 thing anymore, I just went to check and where they had the $20 free graphic, it's gone.
It was there about 4 days ago though.
one note about the pointclick deal, you have to have at least a $25 balance to be able to receive a check from them
Hey How is Gundam Side Story? I contemplated getting it but saw no review on it...
