SALE time again at selected Virgin Megastores. They are doing their usual "Early Bird" offers - stupidly cheap prices on certain items of which they have strictly limited stock, and are pretty much guaranteed to be gone in minutes rather than hours.

Biggest of the lot is the XBox 360 Fifa World Cup Bundle pack, which will be £99.99 - a saving of £140.

The other offers are:

CD - Feeder / The Singles £5
CD - Lily Allen / Alright, Still £5
CD - Corinne Bailey Rae / Corinne Bailey Rae £5
CD - The Kooks / Inside In Inside Out £5
DVD - Band Of Brothers 6 DVD Boxset - £5
DVD - Godfather Trilogy 5 DVD Boxset - £5
DVD - Pink Panther (films not cartoon) 6 DVD Boxset £5
DVD - Lord Of The Rings Extended Trilogy 12 DVD Boxset £5

Participating stores: London Oxford Street, London Piccadilly, Edinburgh Princes Street, Aberdeen Union Street, Glasgow Buchanan Street, Glasgow Argyle Street, Leeds, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield, Bromley, Milton Keynes, Birmingham Pavillions, Liverpool, Bristol, Cardiff, Southampton, Belfast.

EDIT: I should also point out that these deals are limited to ONE OF EACH ITEM per customer - so don't get any ideas about going home with 5 XBOX 360s or anything... hehe

Link just goes to virgin's homepage, there is no real information except get there early? ;)
#2
All these deals are instore only, there was nothing for me to link to! :)

Don't know what else I can add really - the XBox deal will have people queueing outside the doors very early I should imagine. Take a sleeping bag and a flask...
#3
Thanks BristolDeal, I have picked up a few ones in the past. I got the 24 box with series 1-4 last year for a tenner. Hope to get another few goodies this time round. Reputation upped!
#4
Is this UK wide - all major Virgin stores? £100 for a 360 = freakin' fantastic offer.

EDIT: Woops...overlooked that part. Just saw the "360 for £99" and neglected all else :P
#5
Nope - not all stores, just the ones listed (which is why I listed them!)
#6
How does this actually work? I can forsee a queue a mile long and a mad rush for 1 of each of the bargins at 8am.

How early did you get there and was it busy?
#8
There doesnt seem to be any advertising online. If i remember the past sale in January they posted a large advert in the metro (free london newspaper) on the morning of the sale showing the early bird offers.
#9
Nice find if you can get there :) Thanks!
#10
Rumour has it that there will only be 5 of the £100 xbox's in each store.
#11
That wouldn't surprise me at all. I reckon there won't be more than 20 or 30 of the DVD sets, and maybe 100 each of the CDs.
#12
With CDWow+Discount Link+Voucher+Quidco+Eggback I'd quite forgotten that cds don't always cost a fiver ;)

Hi gary_rip, I was there between 06:30 and 06:45. The queues start to get busy after 19:00, so if you really really want one of those xboxes, I would recommend being there around 6. Might seem a tad overboard getting up early but thing of the rewards! :-D
#15
Just been in and Godfather boxset has already been discounted to £17.99 & the guy says this is what they'll be going for on Thursday! Anyway we'll see - I'm going to have a wander and see if I can find a bargain :thumbsup:
#16
So, would all this stuff be right in front of you in a section or do you just race to the till for the Xbox 360 ?
#17
Nice find!!!! Ill be queuing up to get a Xbox no doubt!!!!

The info I posted is from the leaflet they were handing out instore - perhaps he hasn't seen it. :thumbsup:
#19
Are these offeres likley to be nabbed by all the staff before the public?

19:00 as in ppl waiting over night?
#21
I'm taking a few stink bombs to let off near the front of the queue (and take a gas mask) :p
#22
Its a good idea to try and get hold of a leaflet/newspaper advert detailing the deals, I did this last time and got Asda to price match The Godfather trilogy, think it was ~£10 that time.
#23
na basically i think you're aloud 2 items. and they give you a voucher in the queue a few hours before.
#24
Have just added this to the main post, but deals are limited to one of each item per customer, just in case anyone was planning to do their Mr Greedy act... ;)

lol, love that! rekon john lewis will price match it?
#26
so if someone next to you wanted 2 of the same items and you wanted 2 of the same you could arrange to pick the other. i dont think you can buy more than 1 of the same thing. and i'm pretty sure it is that limited. but with an xbox you'll have people in the queue overnight. nothing there really worth my effort. most of those are only about 10-25 quid saving.
#27
seriously what are the chances of this being real

i dont want to camp outside a shop in liverpool for no reason

ps its the xobx i want!
#28
so its only one item?????? not really worth queuing for long if i can only buy one box set. and yeah it's a bit naff if you queued overnight only to find that store didnt have an xbox. maybe its worth calling them wednesday afternoon. the staff would know as they have to get in an hour early.
#29
People! You're so cynical!

Of course the offer is "real".

And no, one of EACH item, as I said. The most you can get is 9 items - one of each.
#30
sorry for sounding so cynical

it will be erotic though

think im going to get there for 5
i think there will be violence
#31
thats pretty good then. you'll be chained to the door in bristol then?;-):thumbsup: what time do people get there?
#32

#35

emmajk42
Pardon????


haha, now your interested!
#37
i bet there will be hardly any there.

what time do you honestly think you would have to be outside london oxford st or picadilly store to get one?

also do you reckon if i call up one of the staff on wednesday night and trade my girlfriend over i might be able to skip the queue.

;-)
#38
well i think you could get an xbox for you girlfriend - put a post in the for sale or trade with a pic and see if you get any offers!

:giggle:
#39

#40
