The official Nintendo Wii bargain alert thread

Admin Avatar
[admin] 1d, 2m agoFound 1 decade, 2 months ago
Alright after recent discussion in the forums I figured we should have a bargain alert thread. There's sites out there that have an automated scraping system that takes info from several merchants but I know the eyes and ears of HUKD members will beat those prices handily. HUKD members know the merchants, the vouchers, the cashback, the best way to get a bargain :)

If you spot a Wii bargain please submit it as a normal deal but also put a post in this thread. That way members can subscribe to just this thread if they want. Also, when you submit the deal put "wii bargain" as a tag. That way members can create a custom Deal Alerts RSS feed for that tag.

Please note the following Prices are subject to change. I have listed prices as they stand now with current vouchers/discounts, but please note these may not be available when stores are ready to take Pre-Orders.

Also no stores have been allocated stock as of yet, so the ones taking "Pre-Orders" are actually making a personal first come first served lists.

Let's keep this to prices, not Specs etc

It looks like Boots will be cheapest after points etc but will need help calculating that as I never bought from Boots online and no diea how many points/value etc

Thank You to Admin, gd_miester, emmajk42, rayman for discount info

Keep track of loads of retailers stocking the Wii here.

Wow great post PennyPincher. I would say the ones with the most deal potential are Boots and Littlewoods/LX Direct. Advantage points are worth 1p per point for an instore spend. Littlewoods usually have very good vouchers but it's a bit of a toss up sometimes whether you will get through with them.
[admin]#5
Yup aware of that site cutthroat_jake. The thing is because it is automated it isn't intelligent like HUKD members. For example like in PennyPincher's post where he's looked at things like advantage points or possible vouchers etc. It's a good resource though to see who has it in stock.
#6
So far it looks to me that PCWorld and Boots will have the best price.

PCWorld = 6% Quidco + 5% YAW Voucher.

Boots = Quidco + Voucher + Points.
#7
I didn't think the YAW codes worked at PCWorld... just tested, so I don't think they do.

Excellent post ThePennyPincher ^^^ Reputation awarded :)

Yes the YAW discount codes have expired...

Thanks for the info and effort from me too ThePennyPincher :) Very useful ;-)

Still work at currys and dixons Ray... (YAW297)
#10
NP 8) Had to do it for myself anyway, if you hadn't guessed I want to get one :-D

Should make it easy for people to see best place to go, people like me who have vouchers, credit with stores like Game can compare to see if it's worth using it on this purchase...

Now do I wait for a Black one to be released...

emmajk42

What does that code discount? I had a look in voucher section adn I couldn't seem to find any vouchers applicable from these group of companies as the value didn't meet minimum spends.
#11
How likely is quidco to work on preorders where they don't charge you yet? I'd have thought not very likely, anyone have experience? A lot of vouchers have (sometimes hidden) small print against using them on things like consoles too.
#12
It's a code specifically meant for users of the You-At-Work scheme, giving 5% discount on anything - IF APPLICABLE TO YOU...
#13
The main concern for me is the controller, I'll be using the Wii for a lot of multiplayer, and £48 for an additional controller? Whaaat! That's £150~ if I want to play with four of us :(

Yeh is expensive, but you get what you pay for. Don't forget you can use old gamecube controllers to save a lot of money.

Or convince the other people to buy a console each ;-) problem solved!

Well there might be the Wii Play game (mini games) that comes with another remote (£40 on play.com but I don't think the games been officially announced here!). A lot of games will only need extra remotes, not the nunchuck attachment too, and they're £25 each at play.com so £75 for 3 more. Also the nunchuck is £13 at play.com so that's £38 each for a "complete" controller, not £48. The prices will go down eventually I suppose.

Well you can use them on gamecube games obviously, and probably old virtual console games but I doubt you can use them on most new wii games.

Babbler - that's been linked already. The point of this thread is to find the real bargains, not the prices that are just scraped off merchant sites.

Trust me here, HUKD members will kick the ass of those automatic scraping sites everytime ;) They are good for finding who has stock in but they aren't the best place for finding the real bargains, you need eyes, ears and minds for that.

Well I can't say I have ever pre-ordered a games console like this, but i recently pre-prdered a DVD box set that will be released in October, and quidco has gone through correctly and is due to be paid this month sometime (September) No money has been charged by them as of yet either...

Ok, the YAW dosent work but this one does :)

NHSDIS3107

Definitely this will be the case, especially when it's actually much closer to the release date ;-)

NHSDIS? Doubt I'm eligible for that any more. :roll:

There needs to be frantic discussion now for the hardcode people who are preordering ASAP because they're paranoid there won't be enough (hello), any outstanding deals that pop up along the way and then frantic discussion nearer the date. If there is short supply, the deals will get worse or disappear entirely nearer the date though.

No you aren't entitled to use it unless you're an NHS employee...

the wii looks by far the best value and most fun of the new consoles. i think nintendo have really hit one out of the park this time !! despite the high cost of added controllers it's probably comparable to how much extra ps3 or xbox360 controllers cost (without doing any research, just presuming) so coupled with the massive saving you make on the initial console outlaw compared to the other two, and the expectation that someone like logic3 will soon release a generic copy of the controller for half the price...id say the wii will wule the world !
#25
I'm just pre-ordering at my local GAME. I MUST have this the first day it comes out :p
#26
Hello I'm new here, so I probably don't understand most things - feel free to shout me down. If people are looking to buy a Wii (£179.99) then they'll probably want a game too (£39.99) totalling at £219.98 doesn't this qualify you for the £20 discount with a minimum spend of £200 listed here : -

http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?p=101003

Giving you a total of £199.98 for Wii and extra game.

Probably correct bannyx! There are so many stores and codes to choose from, it's probably better for members to check out all deals before you buy.

But that's exactly the kind of info we'd love in this thread.

A big welcome to HUKD!

Slight problem with some of the Quidco discount prices - e.g. Play do not give a discount on hardware purchases - others might be the same. Not too much of a problem if you know someone who works for Argos though as staff get a 10% discount :thumbsup:

I'm looking forward to my £162 Wii :-D

Can anyone who has ordered a Wii via Play confirm this?

It says so on quidco , so don't even try:

Please read the following before proceeding:
Cashback does not apply to console sales, such as Playstations, X-boxes, etc However all other hardware including console controllers and leads are still valid for cashback.

amazon seems to not be taking pre-orders at the moment

HMV are now taking preorders at http://www.hmv.co.uk/hmvweb/navigate.do?ctx=1000;-1;-1;-1&pGroupID=6

All usual discounts do not apply.

All usual discounts do not apply.

I know most vouchers and student discount say no consoles, but the free games reward card and quidco don't have any (visible) rules against it. It's easy to cancel if something better comes along so I'm adding a Wii and Zelda at HMV through quidco with my usual account discounts (games now £39.99 and discounts should apply).

Actually, I don't expect them to honour it, but student 10% discount is currently showing on the console as well as the game. So £219.98, £197.98 after student discount, 2200 games reward points (£11 off future games), and £11.88 back on Quidco. Equivalent price: £175.10!

Realisically without the student 10% off the console, only the game, £219.98, £215.98 after student discount, 2200 games reward points (£11 off future games), and £12.96 back on Quidco. Equivalent price: £192.02.

Or for you poor people who aren't students, £219.98, 2200 games reward points (£11 off future games), and £13.20 back on Quidco. Equivalent price: £195.78.

edit: Or maybe that's all a load of rubbish since if I look at the actual item page instead of blindly adding it to my basket, it says student discount doesn't apply (knew that), "Games discount card" doesn't apply to hardware (even though the "Games reward card" link above says it applies, maybe that's a different card?) and they'll only send it to credit card billing address (which is where I won't be). They should check these things for you when you order.

Hey everyone! Just joined up but been using HUD for some time now!
Anyway, just been browing on Littlewoods and found a Wii with 2 games and 2 controllers for £319. (Controllers are only £33, Bargain!)

http://www.littlewoods-online.com/rf/navigation/searchthumbs.do?Ntt=wii&Ntk=littlewoods_search&Ntx=mode%20matchallpartial&Np=1&N=85+103&Nu=this_product&Nty=1

Sounds expensive!
But wait!

Littlewoods -

£15 off first order - £15.00
£30 off £60- ZG0333 - £30.00
20% off - XX066 - £15.95
6% Quidco - £19.14

Total - £238.91

I think my calculations are correct!
So basically, for £238.91, you get Wii console, 2 games and 2 controllers!
Sounds good to me!!!

I'm not sure if the vouchers are still valid, but they are listed here and one more thing, this information is only good if you are a NEW customer!

Hope this is of use to some of you!

Great to be here!!
#38
Hi birdyboyuk, a big welcome to the forums here.

Can you stack vouchers like that with littlewoods? Has anyone ever tried this?
[admin]#39
No you can't stack vouchers. Well you can on the site but it's against T&C's so they usually get declined or pulled and you get charged full price. It's not worth the headache.

Just using the 20% and Quidco can make a good bargain though.
#40
At the end of the day, everywhere will be same price, so it's all gonna depend on quidco and vouchers plus things such as points.

Boots are going to come out cheapest, if someone told me that a good few months back that a console is cheapest at Boots, I would of laughed
