I would say either Amazon (direct would be ok), BestBuy or Newegg. They are basically the same price everywhere, but sometimes a store will offer a decent bundle. I would keep an eye out on either slick deals or dealspl.us (site like slick deals)

I agree with the above people. I must ask though, have you personally played PS3 online? If not, I'd highly suggest it; compared to Xbox Live, it is absolutely horrible. There is a legit reason for Xbox Live costing money.

^ I'm actually tired of xbox live. Had it for 3 years. When it expires next June I'm done.

I have both and buy all my games for the 360 for this reason. I just buy the live cards when they are on sale. I played a few games online with the PS3 and it just doesn't compare.

The cheapest I found for a new slim model is about $270. $300 original price and some places have a 10% coupon like Sears. The best deals are promotions or just lie to a rep. I walked into Sony Style and told them ToysRus had a sale of a free extra controller + game promotion with a PS3 purchase and sony gave me the deal. They never called to verify. Maybe ToysRus did have a sale since I purchased it around black friday last year.

What's wrong with Amazon? I've bought the majority of my current electronics from them with no problems whatsoever, and they have a great return policy. Avoid their "resellers" though but as long as it's shipped and sold from Amazon they are great.

Heh, so some of ya'll are on SD. I'm guess you've seen the huge thread of getting the 12 month Live cards for 19.99 at Target. Too bad mine didn't have the sign. And I went like half an hour after the deal was posted:(
