25% OFF SOUND & VISION IN SAINSBURYS

Found 29th Nov 2008Made hot 29th Nov 2008
Hi I work at sainsburys and was informed by my colleagues who work on the sound and vision department 25% off starts monday to include video games,dvd's & cd's.
Unfortunatley it does not include consoles.
Even better if you work for them, making it 40% with staff discount.
Please be kind as this is my first post.

Bit like your picture.. Hot!

Bit like your picture.. Hot!



She sure is

will there be any discount on tv's, dvds etc as thats where all the sound and vision stuff is
if so ill be getting a sony 32" tv for £210 if what your saying is correct :shock:

Guitar Hero World Tour ?

Why do consoles always get exempt from these deals? :x

Oh yay! I get 15% off too Hope this is true (although, i'm sure my bank account doesn't!)

might be because theres less margins on the profit on them, compared to cds, dvds, games where their bought cheaply and sold for a lot.

Hot! although 25% plus 15% staff discount doesn't equal 40%. If yiu bought something for £100 it would be (100*.75)*0.85 = £63.75.

Nice though ;-)

Guitar Hero World Tour Should be included, All Games but not the machines

what about TV's ?

Not sure if it applies to tv's etc, I was only interested in the games for stocing fillers

ill trying popping into sainsburys today or tomorrow to see if my mates there and ill ask him. thanks for the heads up :thumbsup:

Guitar Hero World Tour ?



My first thoughts as well. :w00t:

I dont think it would be a 40% discount as if the item is £1000 then wouldnt they do the 25% off first to make it £750 and then give the staff discount on the £750 to give a further £112.50 off , which would mean £637.50 total price

Not quite as hot as Gemma but at least I get more chance to fondle a tv.

Hot deal:thumbsup:

ipods?

Please, for the love of God don't turn this thread into a maths debate like tha Asda one!

However, I hope that World Tour is included in the deal

Because thieving companies like Game go and snap them up, and sell them on for a profit.... Blame them....:roll:

Grab em while you can,A little bird told me that Sainsburys games and Dvds etc are somehow linked to Woolworths and they are currently trying to source a new supplier but dont tell anyone i told you,

I think Woolworths is a wholesaler and so supply other retailers with Games and DVD's

it's not really a big secret

news.bbc.co.uk/1/h…stm

if this is true, thats quite awesome. but i just bought 3 for £15 dvds, i hope these wont be 3 for £11.25

but ill be down monday - im presuming its on chart cds, dvds and games, so the non chart dvds and cds wont be in it???

ill have to go down as soon as it opens lol, want to get in quick and nab the deals while i can.

i mean if its true all their xbox games will be under £30, wii games will be around £22 and new chart dvds that are usually £13 will be under £10.

Please someone confirm if it is tvs when you find out! thanks

sainsburys have got TV`S and surround sound systems on sale. Last time ipods tv`s
were in the 25% off sale but only so many per store.

I've just phoned my local sainsburys, Bury St Edmunds and they havent heard anything about discounts from monday.

Cool, so with staff discount, that would make the 40" Sony Bravia they have just £372.... so so tempting, but i really don't need one.... its more of a want lol!

Often these sort of things are kept quiet until last minute. Also, customer service desk staff aren't told everything straight away, it may be worth speaking to the store manager/duty manager or somebody on GM (gen. merchandise)

It's no secret. Woolworths have a distribution arm (Entertainment UK) which supplies DVDs, Music and Games to Sainsbury's among other places. Sainsbury's are currently weighing up the options as to whether or not they should buy this distribution arm or just get a new supplier. The 25% off deal comes from the amount of stock that now needs clearing out of the Entertainment UK warehouses, they are effectively doing a fire sale.

Is it available online aswell or instore only as we don't have a sainsbury's

It will be instore only as Sainsburys don't sell any of the products included in the offer online.

Anyone know how much Left 4 Dead is on the PC, not sure whether to pop down on Mon.

Also, how much are people expecting to pay for Guitar Hero? Will I be upset that I paid £49.99 at Argos?

Don't be conned by the Sony Bravia sticker. Low range Bravia's are just another low range LCD. Sony does make some of the best LCDs but they also sell under the Bravia name some pretty average ones.

sainsbury were selling the guitar pack bundle for £74.99, meaing 25% off would equate to £18.75 hence more expensive still!

All GM managers know about it but others wont. I dont think TV's will be in the sale as I think they are classed as GM. Also the clothes sale has also been brought forward to the 18 Dec though the date may change again depending how sales do before then. And the vat has already been taken off sound and vision.
