They are currently refurbishing the Currys at Junction 9 of the M6 (Wednesbury). I went in the other day to buy something and the guy was telling me they are doing a special opening at 7am on Thursday 16 October where they have 500 PS3 80Gb consoles for £200 and Samsung 40" LCD's with £400 off RRP (sorry, didnt get details asto which models). The special offers will last till Saturday 18 October but the guy reckons the stock will all be sold by the Thursday anyway. Thought I'd let you guys know.

PS - first deal so if its all mucked up then I apologise :o)

here is an internet weblink to our local rag, detailing the re-opening

Is this offer available in any of the London area stores.


i think its store specific. would have been good if it was in the london area though
#3
Great deal if true but a million miles away from where I live :-(
#4
can someone call to confirm this looks too good to be true.
#5

Are uou reffering to the below store:

BIRMINGHAM Junction 9 M6
M6 Junction 9
Axletree Way
GB - WEDNEDBURY, Birmingham WS10 9QY
Tel: 08445 61 62 63

it cant be true. why would they order 500 ps3's for a store opening? good deal though if its true.
#10
yes rudki, that is the store.
#11
could well be true. When Dixons opened the Bullring store I got an £1100 lappie for £550. They had lots of other opening deals on TVs , PCs and other electrics. Probs more effective to give 500 PS3s at £200 than advertise. Will have to wait n see
#12
Can you imagine the footfall when people think they have a chance of a cut price ps3?? Very clever idea.
#13
That'll be an interesting opening, bit like the old 'Jan sales' wonder how many will get injured in the stampede and the fights over ps3's.
It's either a loss leader or more likely total tosh to get bodies through the doors,either way irresponsible marketing. 'We didn't anticipate there'd be such high demand'

im not being pissy or anything, but they arent marketing it - it isnt being advertised, so its barely irresponsible of them is it? it was some guy giving me a heads up in the currys store.

the guy is anticipating a high demand, thats why he is saying they are opening at 7am and that they will probably all be sold by the end of the day.

i dont understand why the spanish inquest, its a ps3 for 200 notes. im passing on the info so that someone who fancies getting up early can get a sterling piece of kit for a price that is not available anywhere else.

I feel for you mate, you find a great deal, share it with us all and its voted cold and slagged off, it got to the stage where I think it aint worth posting a deal anymore as it only gets slagged off.

if you dont like the product, shop or you cant get it cause you live to far away just shut the F up the idea of this site is show the deal not some jumped up little :whistling: personal views.

if the deal is hot vote hot

If its a poor deal and you know a better fine vote cold but say why

if you dont like the product or too far away then just walk away and keep your views to yourself

RANT OVER

It's the next junction on from where I get off for work so i think I'll start out a bit earlier and see what's what...a PS3 for £200 is worth starting out a liitle earlier methinks :thumbsup:

...for all those giving the OP a hard time over this, please stay at home...more chance for me then ;-)
#17
I plan on giving this a try, travelling from Manchester at 5:30am :whistling: wont be totally disappointed if the offer isnt legit, will just have to visit The Bull Ring, as Ive never been vefore :-D
banned#18
Ok as i work for the store group i will give head office a ring or the store and get some clarification, i wonder if the local pc world's will match this :thumbsup:
#19
this sounds like the same type of refurb offer they are having at colchester currys, although we only had 50 PS3's ...

also selling tomtom 1/2 price, 42" Panasonic with £200 off ...

we had a local flyer come through the door the day before..

Oh they give you a voucher whilst you queuing outside so no stampede
#20
I'm going to this myself, not that far away from me. Hopefully a new TV and PS3 my way.

My brother and dad have both had flyers with the offers on through the door and its in local papers.

I have only been informed by my dad and bro, so I haven't got a flyer to scan.

The PS3 offer is not a massive saving though as a lot of sellers are getting rid of the 40GB models around this price.
#23
its true i work there but everything will go quick , and before people start to moan , staff can't have these deals we have to queue with everyone else, there is also washers for £99, sat navs for £25, so get in there early.

Article says discounts upto 50% on selected items. Does not mention PS3. Any body can post on here claiming great deals, but to be taken seriously (by me anyway) you need hard evidence not just heresay. I have not voted cold because it may turn out to be genuine.
#25
the offer is for a 80GB brand new though - current ebay listing is around £300+

Technically it's not brand new, it's a refurb, although it should come with a years guarantee :thumbsup:

Good deal, good luck to all :thumbsup:

500 refurbishment 80 GB PS3's is a lot of ps3's that have gone faulty within a couple of months :w00t: I thought only the 360's had major problems ?
#28

I only want warhawk for £4.97! BAH!
#29

#30

I think the refurb in the title is referring to the actual store rather than the ps3's....i think.

sweet deal for those who can be bothered

It was probably me that sold you your Packard Bell Easy Share E3200!
#35
Refurb is definitely reffering to the store! Not a PS3.
#36
this potentially is worth the trip from anywhere within a good few miles if fuel costs are cheapish, be good to know what exactly is coming on offer tho as i quite fancy 400 notes off a samsung tv
#37
Do they do these sort of offers at all DSG stores after they have been refurbished? My local PC World is closed for refurbishment at the moment and I was wondering if they will be doing any good offers like this when they reopen.
