YOU ARE ALL NUTS THIS DEAL WORKS WHEN YOU ORDER AN OUT OF STOCK GAME & WAIT UNTIL THE CONSOLE IS SENT!

**PLEASE READ ENTIRE POST BEFORE VOTING COLD**

Nintendo DSi choice of colours including one game and accessory pack, separate cost £170.

I know there is a Tesco deal offering two games with the black console but this is a good deal if your child wants a different colour. In my case my niece wants light blue only.

Deal inludes accessory pack & one game

Plus you have a choice of thirteen games

It says in the promotion that the game will be reduced to the price of £5 but when I received my confirmation e-mail the game was not reduced to make the price £144.99 THE CONSOLE ITSELF WAS REDUCED TO £117.34.

The game I ordered is currently out of stock & the console is coming tomorrow. My card has only been debited with £117.34 and I have had a despatch confirmation from Amazon.

**I am guessing if I cancel the game then I get to keep the console for £117.34**

Here is how it appears on the e-mail:

Total: £139.99
Promotional Gift Certificates: -£22.65
------
Total for this order: £117.34
Delivery estimate: 5 Dec 2009 1 "Nintendo DSi Handheld Console (Light Blue)"


Details as follows:
Buy a Nintendo DS Lite or DSi, Add a Selected Game for £5 and an Accessory Pack for Free
Step 1: Select a Nintendo DS Lite or DSi console shown below by ticking the box to the left of your chosen console.

Step 2: Now you can add a selected game to your order for just £5. Select one game shown below, sold by Amazon.co.uk to your order by ticking the box to the left of your chosen game. The price of your selected game will be reduced at checkout. £5 game terms and conditions.

Step 3: Now you can add an accessory pack shown below to your console order for free. Select one accessory pack shown below, sold by Amazon.co.uk to your order by ticking the box to the left of your chosen pack. The accessory pack's full price will be deducted from your order total at checkout. Free accessory pack terms and conditions.

Step 4: Click the "Add to Basket" button on the right of the page to add all your selected items to your basket.

Hope this makes sense... only my second deal.

How can you say it doesn't work? Once you have ordered the price is broken down so that the DSi is only £117.34.

I then tried to remove individual items and it still said the DSi was £139.99, so your tip is rubbish, and rightly voted cold!

My DSi has been dispatched and I have cancelled the OUT OF STOCK GAME.

Price debited £117.34

No rubbish about it.

YOU ARE ALL NUTS.....


I stopped reading there and hit the cold button. Did I miss anything important?
#11
Appreciate effort to explain deal. Tried all types of combination to get same result without luck. Can you give details of game chosen and order of item selection.
thanks:)
#12
can you explain this -- not working or order for me

But did you try the exact method mentioned by the OP?
I.E. Place your order for the console bundle, deliberately picking an out of stock game, checking out and completing the order process, waiting for them to send the console (presumably you have to choose to receive items as they're available), then cancelling the game before they have chance to send it and charge your account?

Quite clear to me what the poster is talking about (and equally clear you lot think you should be seeing the discount to £117.34 at sometime during the checkout process).

It really is stupidly obvious what they're talking about but I see one or two problems.....
1. You only get to find out what the discount/glitch is AFTER you've placed your order, got the e-mail and they've sent the item for despatch.
2. The only out of stock game they'll let you choose is Princess Melody (which will be a sod if they won't let you cancel the game without bumping the console price back up).
3. Will they let you cancel the game without wanting their £22.65 back?
4. What's the point; it's not like you're going to buy a DSi and never get a game for it?

Seems better to me to do what my parents did (go into HMV, who were doing the console with two games for around £159, and say "I don't want those two but will buy it if you let me have these two instead").

Because they don't understand what you're saying (even though it's blindingly obvious) :)
#15
mumbojumbo
You have to order the console and a game that is OUT OF STOCK (and will be delayed coming back into stock).
You wait for the console to be shipped and then cancel the game; you will be charged only for the console.


Ah, so I'm not the only one who understands what this deal is all about (I thought, for a minute, I was the only one on here able to use brain cells in parallel, rather than line them up and using them one at a time).:-D
#16
Glad someone gets it!!

I have Amazon Prime so guaranteed to get the console next day. As soon as I got the tracking details I cancelled the game. I think Amazon meant to reduce the game but the console reduces in error.

here here. I didn't vote before but now the cold button will be pressed!
#18
You can get the DS version for £69. Not much difference between DS and DSi to be honest.
#19
sorry pops_here... FOLLOWED TO THE LETTER
try for yourself if you like. i did follow instructions but amazon are blocking selection for Princess Melody game and are awaiting another selection before proceeding. 0 stock and 0 allocated to order.
therefore can't place order and can't receive confirmation e-mail.
Stupid has nothing to do with this.....

Welldone fastlane jo for getting this deal i just think amazon have cottoned on.:thumbsup:

If you cancel your order for a Qualifying Item, the offer will cease to apply. If you return a Qualifying Item, Amazon.co.uk reserves to charge you (using the payment method you used for the original order) for the reduction in the Amazon.co.uk selling price of the Qualifying Item at the time of purchase.


Just don't act all indignant when they charge you the remaining amount. They've done it before and will continue to do so in future.

Incorrect. Voted cold cos of attitude of OP, and also the Tesco deal with 3 games for £150 is much much better than this one with none for £117.

No, it refers to the offer overall.

You clearly don't understand what you're dealing with and your attitude towards people who understand these things and are trying to clear things up for you absolutely stinks.

You clearly can't read DS received this morning game cancelled without a problem.

Deal worked perfectly, what don't you understand about that?

It's really easy to understand. The Console is the qualifying item. If you return the qualifying item you will be charged full price for the promotional item. The promotional item is the game. You are not keeping the promotional item because the qualifying item has been reduced in error.

Don't imply you have superior knowledge & are trying to help ME when you are clearly unable to understand what is obvious.

Take your cliquey little friends & move along!

You still don't understand the legalese. No matter how much you protest to the contrary, Amazon are perfectly within their rights to issue a chargeback to your card for the amount you believe you have saved.

The fact that they have done this on numerous occasions for previous deals blows your understanding of the situation out of the water. It won't happen immediately, but there's every chance that it will happen.

Never mind though, get your head back in the sand... My 'cliquey friends' and I will look forward to your next genius deal on here.
