This is my first deal post and i hope some of you find it useful:

PC WORLD normal price is Web Exclusive Price inc VAT £249.99

This is a price match deal with PC WORLD using GAMESTATION as the match.
You need to ring the sales number which is: 0844 5610000 and go through to CS

Gamestation are offering this deal for £174.95 including delivery.
I called PC WORLD to see if they would match it, GAMESTATION do have this bundle in stock they just haven't updated the site yet, but if you ring them you can order it.

After a few moments with them checking they came back and asked if this was for delivery i said yes, they then got an auth code and took my payment over the phone for delivery in 3-7 working days.

The final price was £161.00 this must be after they take discount off for the price match.

I have just phoned PC WORLD CS, 30 mins later, asked if i can pick this up from my local store. They said they had to cancel the previous order but said they would reserve one for me and all i had to do was give the ref number and show my email invoice for the price match order.

Just on my way to fetch it now :)

I think this is an absolute bargain and i hope some of you do too.

Sorry there is no pics i haven't yet sussed how to upload links!

This is a good deal how ever I just rung up PC world and she said I have to go down to the store with a print out of the product I want to price match! :S but surely they won't match it as gamestation have it as out of stock.
#2
I rang up and asked about a price promise got put thru to someone in CS who went thru both bundles and realised they were the same and then got an auth code and processed the order online.
I then phoned up 30 mins later to ask if i could pick it up from my local store, they then reserved one for me and sent the details of the price match to the store and i took the email they sent me with the price etc on.

I have just got back with my bundle, i have to say the bloke in PC World couldn't believe it and said they have no idea how Gamestation sold it so cheaply and i said, to be honest i don't care but thank you very much :)

Please note that you have to pay when you order by phone and then when you phone back they will cancel this and return funds back to you in 3-5 days.

Also if you ring gamestation they do have it ib stock its just that the website isn't updated yet, this is what they told me last night.

I really like the PCWorld price match.

Got one of these there yesterday - they looked up the website at the till
and they took 10% off the price not the difference!

Xbox 360 Arcade with Forza2 and Viva Pinata and extra controller for £153.99 when their in-store price is £249.99!!!!!

Remember you have to order it over the phone first, if you can get both websites with the bundles up on the pc and tell them where to find the Gamestation bundle then if they say that it is out of stock tell them you have called Gamestation and they do have them in its just that the website hasn't been updated yet.
#7
Ok, thanks. Going to try now.

Will let you know how I get on =]
#8
Did you use the product code in the link? As that one is out of stock according to the website

Yes, but i phoned Gamestation who said they have them in stock its just that the website hasn't been updated and they guy on the phone at PC World was happy with that.
#11
I mean the PC world package, they have other bundles in stock but they don't match gamestations ones.
#13
grrr just rung up and the bloke wouldnt have it. Told him I rung up gamestation and they said it was in stock etc. then I said someone told me about the price match deal as they have just done it with the same product and he was just saying they need to see it in stock on the website.

If they have it in stock in gamestation I will just by the arcade for £150 because thats a descent price any way.

I really pushed with them on the phone and said that i would happily purchase one from gamestation and send them the email invoice if they so wished and they said no they would match it as they realised that i wouldn't bother buying it from them.

Sorry i can't help anymore.

I would love to know if other people have managed to get one or if i was very lucky...

Hi - I've just been to PC World in Chester and they honoured it no problem - without even checking. I phoned up first and reserved it and mentioned the price match. They were very easy going and I got the lot for £161. I'm not trying to be smug, but if it helps, ask your local branch to call Chester and they can tell them they should honour it. Hope that helps. Thanks for the VERY hot tip - our 360 blew up on Xmas day, so this is BRILLIANT! :)

Yayyy :) I am really pleased that at least one other person managed to get this deal I am playing on it now and still can't believe that it was so cheap!

Happy late Xmas!! :-D
#17
Well just had confirmation that this deal has been held in the following areas:
Lincoln
Derby
Gateshead

Some even got it as low as £153.00 with no problems from PC World staff.
#18
is it a falcon?
#19
Am taking a trip to PC World in Northampton tomorrow to possibly get this, will let you know :)
#20
It's only a core system, not such a hot deal!
#21
Actually its an arcade system, better than a core for a few reasons, you get memory card with it, you get wireless controller, you get HDMI port.
#22
We managed to get one yesterday for £162.00 fro P C World Exeter. Realised when hubby got home the price match 10% thingy didn't match up so called CS and they will honour the differnce so we get ours for £153.00!!!
#23
Cool, anyone know how big the memory card is, can we still play on xbox live or is that only the full system?

As far as i can see (and i am very anal with prices!) this is the lowest price for an arcade bundle with 3 games and 2 wireless controllers.
#27
I'm considering getting this then adding a 120gb HDD, it works out cheaper than the elite at the moment :?

This is exactly why i bought it as we have an elite and it cost a lot more than this + 120 HD and with more games :-D
#29
So I have ordered one for collection, do I have to ring them or wait to mention PM tomorrow when I pay?

I did get much more sucess over the phone with CS than i did in the store. If you order it by phone and then cb and asked if you can pick it up in the store instead they will send the details and price over to the branch you are collecting it from. This makes it much easier and stops all the questioning from the in store staff.

Try this one: 0800 0565732 :-D
#37
most pc world staff hate to see a customer getting a better deal than they can, thats why they are usually arsy with things like this.

Speak to customer services, completely different. . . .

They want to help, stores want to screw you for as much as they can. If you kick up with CS, they will send you vouchers to the value of the 10% if you diddnt get it.

Just snap up the price match and worry about the 10% later

Yes instore staff are all but useless lol. However I did contact CS they gave a me a reference number. Went directly to the counter with it and first of all tried to charge me the £249.99. I said I dont think so otherwise I wouldnt be here in the 1st place, I then mentioned to them I should get 10% for the price match and they said that I had to of purchased it elsewhere 1st before going to PCworld with the price match offer. I just hope I dont need to buy anything else from PCworld in a hurry always having trouble with the staff no matter what the problem is.
#39
I did this last week in store no problem. However the unit;s they had were to 203w, whereas Gamestation in Birmingham New Street had the 175w (half falcon) ones.

I had to order it online first then ring and ask if i can collect instead, after checking it was in stock at my local branch. Then the cancelled m first order said they would refund me and then they reserved the bundle at my local branch put the PM details on my acct, which the look at when ou go to collect our goods.

At that point when they read the details there is nothing they can do but give you the goods. :-D

Don't let them fob you off as they will try!
