Currency converting glitch @ Zavvi (Save ££££££'s)

There's a very nice glitch currently @ Zavvi that can save you £££££

OK, this is what you do :-
1) Add a product to your basket as normal
2) Then 'View Basket'
3) IMPORTANT BIT: On the top right you'll see a GB flag and a Euro flag - click on the Euro flag
4) Notice that it has converted it the wrong way (for example a £17.85 game becomes €15.45 (which works out at £13.34))
5) Complete checkout as normal

I ran through a test and it let me ship to a UK address even though the currency was in Euro

Also works in conjunction with rewardyourthirst 15% code

This glitch also works at The Hut, Sendit etc

EDIT: only now works on certain products - you can view the site in Euros so you can see what products it works on

Pay with Paypal to avoid any potential conversion charges from your bank

great find!

The 3DS is 180 euros.
looks like its fixed mate!
just tryed it and it went up
This is not converting the wrong way for me.
Oh well, fun whilst it lasted.
£17.85 becomes €21.45.
Wow. Amazing find wedge. Just ordered Rise of The Foot Soldier Blu Ray was £4.85 But using that little trick plus 15% voucher got it down to 3.78 Euro, Which equates to about £3.25. Bargin! Heat added.
still working on some items.

Just tried it and still working for me, tried PS3 Headset (£17.85) converts to (€15.45) which converts back to (13.31)
nice find. can i pay with pounds even though i selected euros? like can i use my bank that has pounds, if you get me ? :P
Using firefox and it does not work, rubbish that it is a firefox thing.

I think Chrome is the answer - still working using that
3DS black still €183.45.
I doubt they will honor the more expensive items, but heres hoping lol.
It is nothing to do with the browser, it is the product, some products it works some it doesnt.

doesnt work for me on firefox :(
makes everything more expensive for me sadly. Though the 15% discount will be greater. Still end up paying more though lmao
Just browse the website in Euros, you will see it is simply that a lot of the European prices have been mispriced. Nothing to do with the browser you use but the product.

My Bad
Doesn't work for me
Wonder if there will be a bank fee for currency conversion if it tries to charge it to your card in Euros?

Think the max a bank charges is £2.50 for Santander, most banks are below 40p though.
What is the rewardyourthirst code?

If anyone is interested in Blu Rays these are all under 5 Euros. Plus you can use the 15% code and possible quidco.

just bought Piranha 3D - Blu-ray for €6.33! X)
PS3 Controllers are working!!!

works out bout £25
Is there any charges for buying euros?
Dont work ! Tried to buy ink cartridges 9 mins after post ! it converted money correctly
Still working on a Xbox 360 Live 2100 Points Card - converts to €13.45 ie £11.59

Ordered :) LOL 13quid wasn't bad, can't not at 11 quid.
looks to be item based.

But not sure it is worth it as my banks like to charge me a premium on euro exchanges. dont know what it is, but could outweigh any saving. Just a potential warning.

Quality for those with a non-commisioned card.
Dead Space 2 (limited Edition) works out to £27.54 (£37.85 -> €31.95 -> £27.54)
Some good deals could be got here.
Not working for me on IE, FireFox, Chrome or Opera...

Update: But it's seems to work on Console items just as someone mentioned above
