I know its this price at Game and Play, but this one pays out 11%, while if people took the time to look, GAME pays out NOTHING anymore except to new GAME customers (it is on the quidco site). Play is 4%.

This game did not impress me from the beta, but I can't complain, its a free game with the new HD Bluetooth mic, cos the mic without the game is the same price and the xbox 360 mic is £35 without any game !

I hope Gameplay continue to pay out 11%, since Gameplay and GAME are the same company.

:thumbsup: Nice find ! Cancelling my play order ...

Hehehe beam me up !

There is a slight drawback here, the only people talking on PSN will be the SOCOM crowd who i'm sure will not be the same target audience as the LBP crowd. Too much testosterone involved here.

Thanks for pointing out that GAME has re-aligned their QuidCo cashback yet again:

9% for Software ( for the new customers )
1.5% for Hardware


GameStation's payout for tracked transactions also seems to have changed recently too:

5% for accessories - New
6% for accessories - Pre-owned
2% for hardware purchases


And, as you rightly said, GamePlay continue with:

3% for hardware purchases
11% for software purchases


(Well, they will until somebody responsible for the percentages reads this thread!)

:)

BFN,

Cheers dapunk!
Was mulling over the play.com purchase (good, don't get me wrong), but this is great, works out to a £3.30 discount if you go via Quidco and it's tracked->validated->paid (effective price approx £26.69 delivered - choose free 2nd class post).

Good stuff!
#5
Dammit! Cheers for the heads-up about the Quidco issue - I'd only ordered the limited Far Cry 2 set on the basis of the cashback.

Be warned that Gameplay are owned by Game and thus you may find that the cashback through Quidco changes for these guys too
#6
gameplay will follow shortly as it is owned by game.

Edit : I really should read all of posts above mine LOL and therefore I have to agree with poster above :)

I will simply not buy anything from Gameplay if they do change quidco as when they sell their cheaper titles EG deals for £4.99 they have always been 2nd hand scratched to f copies that I receive and therefore have to send back so not worth the hassle for less than 11%
#7
Last night's Ps3 update added support for High quality voice, which was sorely needed. You will need a headset like one of these to take advantage :)
#8
i trust this over play to actually arrive
#9
Yep, Play.com have very very poor new release availability on some titles - especially Blu Ray. I had HSM, HSM2 and Nightmare Before Christmas all preordered two months before release, yet two days after release all three say on "Order Taken". Cancelled and went and paid a bit more to get them from HMV on the 2 for 30 offer instead. No point at all having cheap price you cannot delivery the goods at!
#10
so if your not a new customer you dont get 9% quidco ?

is it just for a new customers first purchase then ??

I'm a little confused about this as well. I have sent Quidco an email, lets see what their reply is... if I get one that is!!

I didnt think Gameplay was owned by game, it was Gamestation.

I maybe wrong and that would mean Game, Gamestation and Gameplay are all owned by the same company... ( I dont believe that still)

thanks for heads up on quidco for Game, that will make me reconsider purchases in the future, and may pick this up...


EDIT: Ok so I see that GamePlay trade as GAME on the game website, so yes they are all linked, in some way wether gameplay own game or vice versa.

Yes, hence why I listed all three of these retailers in my message above (#4) as a comparison.

The retailers Electronics Boutique (UK), BarrysWorld, ScoreGames, GAME, GameStation, GamePlay, Centromail, and Gameswizards, are all inter-linked by merger, acquisition, & buy-out.

This is what I sent to Quidco:
"Hi, I am a little confused with GAME's cashback which has recently changed. I've always used your site to purchase with GAME but it has changed from 11% to 9% (for the new customers). What does this mean? Can't I get any cashback anymore from GAME beacuse I'm an excisting customer? Thanks"

Their response:
"Hi, Thank you for your enquiry, We are looking into clarifying this right now, Kind Regards, Stephen. Quidco"

Lets see what happens!!
#16
Dont want to go off topic, but does that mean, that when I pre-ordered Fable 2 from GAME like a month ago, when cashback was 11%, that it will not be honoured as its changed...

Damn

I know, we are slightly going off topic... I pre-ordered Pro Evo 2009 last week and my cashback has been tracked at 11% so I think you'll be alright.

Yeah. I ordered a dual shock a few weeks ago and got no quidco (though I got 5 pounds of points redeemed and 10 pounds off with some deal and a 99p dvd wrap).

Let us know how you get on mate

WELL...

I had pre-ordered GH:world Tour and Fallout 3 special edition with quidco raking up to a nice £20.95 ( i used voucher codes for £5 off each order)

If this isn't going to pay out i'm just going to cancel. Any idea the exact date this was changed as i can't find that out anywhere it was still active when i made the pre-orders i'm certain (21/09/08)
#21
Will get round to ordering this as a very good price considering you get a headset as well. Gutted that Game have changed their cashback to just new customers which is a pain
#22
this is a very good deal just need a PS3 to go with it,love socom games!really enjoy playin my m8's PS3 it's just still a bit too expensive for me atm even though i paid more for a ps2 at launch(Come on SANTA help me out!!!)+ i've got too many 360 games try and work through!
#23
Not sure about everyone else, but on quidco, it no longer says (new customers only).

Just says:

9% for Software
1.5% for Hardware
#24
when you pre order from game? do they take the money out straight away? or wait untill therve actually sent itl like play?

Pretty much the same as play.com as the money normally comes out your accoun the day before release or on the day:thumbsup:
#26
When does the Gameplay cashback track through Quidco?? When it's sent out or before??
