I just went to Sainsbury in Hampton (St Clares) tonight. They had the nation wide promotion: PS3 160GB + 2 games for £199.99

I picked two "Fifa 12" games. The console plus the two games scanned at the till for £114.01, as they are deducted twice! If you sell the games (easy, in high demand), you can get a PS3 for about £50.

See picture of till receipt, clearly a mistake in the way the promotion is set up.

Update: reported by some people to work at other stores! Be quick before they correct it. Seems only to work with two "Fifa 12" games

They sell for £35 a piece on eBay (I checked the listings just completed today), so £70 for two is easy to achieve.

I do a little programming and guessing how the code works for these offers I'm guessing this has only happened because you bought the same game twice, if you bought 2 different games I think it would've only run the deduction function once

This is unlikely to be available to anyone else, but voted hot because this is genuinely the best deal I have seen on this site since I joined

Mine shuts in 23 mins and is less than 10 away is it worth the trip? Does anyone know if prices like this are on a national network or locally set? Is the £199 offer even on in all stores? 22mins....

I really don't want to go to the till with this and it charges me full price lol X)

Probably. I bought Fifa 12 twice because it was the easiest to resale on eBay, and the most expensive one, as I don't want the game. Only three games were on offer.
