Rules state that posts should never quote prices that include Quidco - not everyone uses quidco.

Plus a saving, paid one year down the line is hardly a saving... More of a reward really, I'm probably going to think of it as *free money* when mine gets paid out, even though it's not really free.:-D

Thanks for that link. think i will be giving the a ring for sure on Monday now. if they cant guarantee me a copy for the confirmed email Price for release on Friday i will be canceling before they can. To big of a game for me to just hope that they let it through and hope they can deliver in time.

Just ordered, heat n rep added

I can't find where to add the vouvher code....help please/
#20
Found it. Thanks.
#21
Just tried this but can't seem to get it to go through at that price. When i enter the code in at the basket screen it says the code isn't recognized but brings the price down anyway and when I go through to checkout it bumps it back up to full price?

Tried it with both Firefox and IE7 but didn't work with either for me
#22
Just got this message when I tried to order:
Unfortunately we were unable to take your order at present. Please try placing your order again.
Has anyone else got this message? It's annoying me now. I have an order with HMV for the standard edition so I might just stick with that.
#23
i guess they have gotten wise to this - either that or they have ran out of their allocation of LE version so they arent letting people order now.

im hoping i get this though - wouldnt buy the LE if i wasnt saving so much, and its a cool steelbook version right?

btw the cashback tracks at £2.87 not £3.28. they are making it as 8% of the post voucher price, not pre voucher - which you should expect tbh.

still it works out as £34.02 which is pretty cool.
#25
i never did get a reply on what they are like for pre orders ?. i am sure that if i phone them they will tell me what it takes to keep me on but i always prefer asking the community's opinion of things like this. TBH i have never even ordered a normal item from them either so is there basic delivery service good ?, that can sometimes give a fair impression.

would be nice not to have to take a hour round trip just for Gears when they could possibly get it to me for release and i could just bunker in a play games with the heating on :P.
#26
ok so is this expired then? if so i wont bother regestering to buy it
#27
I ordered this on repost and got an email saying couldn't be delivered for release day. If you are'nt in a hurry to get the game it's a great price.
#28
wow - heat added
#29
How long do WHsmiths take to track?

bodes well for me then. on both my order confirmation and my online accounts page i have no sign of dates of delivery or release.
my call to them tomorrow will be full of fun.

as for tracking, mine has already validated on quidco at £2.58. Quidco says they can take 2 months for payment.
#31
Great Game just finished it
#32
dont give a **** if i get it a bit late but if quidco dosent track ill be canceling and sticking to me 31.14 order of the non LE copy

How exactly? HMV deal is £32.99 less 4% quidco... this is more.

The one for £32.99 at Hoomv is the standard edition, the Limited Edition is £44.99.

So this IS considerably cheaper.

This is correct, but not really why.

The reason why posts should not quote prices that include Quidco is because there is no guarantee that Quidco will pay out (although it is likely in my experience - and this depends upon the store as much as on quidco! :) ).

good price can't afford it at the moment shame

gave support a ring and asked about delivery times. talked to a woman that made everything sound so vague it was like a sport. we could or could get it for release and they are sure that it will be sent out around release. was told nothing about order being canceled and was told to just keep and eye or my accounts page for a order update.
was also told that only way to get the order to be delivered to a store was to cancel current order and remake, but as the code is no longer working i think i will hold off on that.

not long after i received a email from them stating..

Thank you for placing your order, ref. *************, with WHSmith.co.uk. The product(s) detailed below are currently out of stock at our suppliers. Please be assured that we will continue to try to obtain the item(s) for you and that we will not debit payment until your order is ready to be dispatched.

Think for me anyway, I will be waiting until Friday morning, and if no order update or game i will cancel and take a trip into town. Sainsburys and most other supermarkets are becoming competitive for games now, i will try to get a £29.99 SE if i can.

good luck to everyone.
