    Default Xbox 360 core system, in hand...Sold for $572 after fees.

    Picked this up at Wal-Mart...figured I'd hit up eBay with it and see what happens... Check it out here...the Xbox 360.

    It has sold... $525 + $25 ship + $22 Paypal fees. The buyer has already paid, so...it's his.

    Up to the top. The reserve has been met (at $290), but there's still 3 days to go... BTW, I'll ship it to Canada or Europe, too, for those of you in the UK, the Netherlands, etc. that can't wait to get a 360 (and I imagine you'd be able to sell it for an amazing sum there, as well).

    Sold it for $572 after shipping and fees. Mods/admins, you can either keep this as a reference, or lock it, or whatever else you deem necessary.

    Me too, I thought it was 299 for the core and 399 for the premium..

    The guy paid for your ebay fees? Why did you charge for that? Did you charge him 5% through paypal too? lol.

    Fun fact: you void any form of seller's protection when charging a fee for Paypal (as if it wasn't bad enough already):

    I work at Wal-Mart. I used my associate's discount (10%) plus another associates-only 10% off any one item coupon. The cost became $239.94, plus the 9.25% TN state sales tax = $262.14.

    And as for the rest of you questioning why I charged Paypal fees and saying it voids seller protection... I think Paypal gets enough of my money charging what they do with the volume of transactions I have flowing through my account at a given time. If I would've let Paypal get the fees, it would've been like paying for protection. My family was (way back in the day, mind you) in the Sicilian Mafia...I shouldn't have to pay for protection, capisce?
