9y, 11m agoFound 9 years, 11 months ago
Nintendo Wii in stock as of 2.30am

£179.99

Don't forget 2% quidco
- Helyx

Fub noticed a disclaimer on quidco so it looks like their is no cash back on this one:

"Cashback does not apply to console sales, such as Playstations, X-boxes, etc or playtrade items. However all other hardware including console controllers and leads are still valid for cashback. "

Nice find :)

Re. cashback at Quidco, you may not get it because there's a note on the Quidco site that says...

Cashback does not apply to console sales, such as Playstations, X-boxes, etc or playtrade items. However all other hardware including console controllers and leads are still valid for cashback.

Could this be the end of the Wii shortage? :)

[SIZE=2]A bit strange that my pre-order is still showing as "order placed".[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]I know this to be the case with Play. It's almost an error which means they don't have any in stock, so they'll just put you to the back of the pre-order queue! [/SIZE]

last time they came into stock at play it was a mistake..when play recieve there stock even for back orders they have to put in on there system for the back order to be completed and sent as soon as they accept the stock it shows on there system as available thats probably why they chose 2:30 am... hope they recieved a large amount and everyone who is still waitin gets there :thumbsup: Just checked my order from 16TH jan still says order placed
#13
Just ordered at 8:30 and saying still in stock so fingers crossed!!
#14

Wish that I has seen this deal earlier, your search for a Wii is far from over!!!
This is a reply that I had to recently placing an order with Play.com for a Wii.....

Thank you for the email

Please accept our apologies for any misleading information you have
been provided in this matter.

Due to the extremely high demand for this console we did receive a
very large number of pre-orders. Unfortunately we have not yet been
able to fulfil all the pre-orders that have been placed. We are
guaranteed more stock of the Wii console, however we regret to say
that we cannot provide any information as to where you stand in the
pre-order queue or when we will be able to fulfil your order. Please
be assured that we will complete your order as soon as we possibly
can.

We're sorry that the delay was not obvious when you placed the order
on the website. Whenever we receive new stock of the console, and it
is booked into our warehouse, the website automatically updates to
reflect that we have stock of the item. However this stock is then
automatically allocated to the pre-orders, and the website will update
once again to show that the item is sold out.

Please accept our apologise for any inconvenience this will cause you.

Kind regards

Welcome to HotUKDeals!

Hi this may sound a stupid ? but does nobody worry about getting hit by customs on high priced items from play?

How soon after placing the order did you receive this email? as I`ve just placed mine and got the confirmation email, and(so far) all seems to be going through(crosses fingers!):thinking:

As mentioned earlier by someone -

I have just called play.com and spoke to a customer service representative. - 25th January 2007 at 09.25.......

He told me that they are required to show IN STOCK when any stock arrives in that is not currently in stock - but this stock will be issued to orders already pre-ordered.

HENCE THIS IS JUST A WAY OF GETTING YOU TO ORDER WITH THEM, AND GETS YOU A PLACE AT THE BACK OF THE QUE>

HENCE IF YOU HAVE PRE ORDERED AND YOUR PRE ORDER IS NOT SHOWING AS BEING SENT BY THE TIME THIS STOCK SHOWS AS BEING OUT OF STOCK - YOU HAVE STILL MORE TIME TO WAIT.

FOR THOSE PLACING THEIR ORDERS TODAY AS I VERY NEARLY DID - THE GUY ON THE PHONE SAID - NO IT WILL DEFINETLY ONLY PUT YOU TO THE BACK OF THE QUE, EVEN PEOPLE WHO MAY HAVE ORDERED THIS YEAR MAY NOT GET THEIR Wii JUST YET AND WE HAVE NO IDEA WHEN THIS ISSUE WILL BE RESOLVED>..........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND CANT TELL YOU HOW BIG THE QUE IS.....

ANYONE SEEN ANY IN THE SHOPS etc etc
