All Tesco console games,CDs,DVDs and books going VAT free this week

This week all games,books,CDs and DVDs in Tesco are going to be reduced by 15% (I think) due to the VAT being taken off. Not too sure which day it starts,likely to be tomorrow (Monday 27th).
Not to bad if you've got a privilege card, works out at 25% then

as VAT is 15% why would they be 16 or 17%??????

Where did you find out about this?

will this just be on new games?

Hi
Thanks for posting Mike2008.
I presume you mean console games rather than kids games/board games etc. If so you might want to add that to the title.
Also, VAT is 15% so I guess they will be reduced by 15% rather than 16/17%.
Thanks

indeed.

to get the price you'll pay, divide the usual price by 1.15.

it's NOT even 15% off, as VAT is 15% added.

ie £100 item (including VAT) would not be £85

you'd pay £86.96 (or £86.95 if they're being generous!)


(£85 + VAT would be £97.75)

so you're looking at a reduction of just over 13%

Nope I believe it's all games

Since most Tesco games hover above the market rate found elsewhere (with plenty of titles that are discounted in other stores still around £39.71 in Tesco) I don't expect to find many bargains but if I do I'll be sure to mention it and add heat & rep.

Wonder if Wii Sports Resort will be 13% cheaper than the current £38.87? Or if this reduction will be off RRP?

Nice to see a company finally exploiting the import loophole. Last I heard hmv was looking to do this but it seems nothing came of it.

Correct. And it would be £78.26 with the privilege card as the staff discount would apply to the reduced price, not the original price, so 21.74% off.

It is VAT free on all chart DVD, CD and console games.

Starts Monday 27th for one week (from memory).

whats a privilege card? and why do u get 10% extra with a privilege card?

It's what Tesco's call their staff discount card

Just been to my tesco and they have the banner up saying about this outside but inside the prices havent changed yet maybe because it was 1st thing this morning or maybe it discounts at the till?

Either way they didnt have Wii Sports resort left in stock so i didnt get to find out.

Heat added tho

Divide the price by 1.15

You need to know someone who works in tesco, they get a card which gets swiped at checkout entitling them to a 10% discount for being staff.

amount is deducted at the till,it's on anything chart related games(including bargain charts for wii/ds), dvd's,cd's BUT not anything BLU Ray related

Yes, I see it reported at £33.71 PLUS if you have a voucher from yesterdays'Mail on Sunday, get another fiver off! - £5 off a non-food spend over £25 ;-)

That's good - might go and see if my local T has it!!

There are still VAT on the games, they are just giving a discount the equivalent to the cost of VAT.

Any further news on good deals on the games then? :whistling:

u could do with buying a magazine too while your there for when u get the rrod
on your quality built 360

Well if we are playing the bashing game, at least it has a catalogue of good games to play and a decent online component. Everything a gaming console should have these days. Something lacking IMO on the other 2

Eh? Was the £9 discount for buying the two together only in effect for the weekend? Because depending on the order the discounts were taken off it should have been £35.43, £36.60 or £37.25.

Anyone think it'll apply to the Wii Fit + free game offer or is that too hopeful?

You'd have to know someone who a) works in Tesco and b) is very generous, because they only get a limited amount of discount per year. It's not really discount, it's basically a part of their salary which they must spend in Tescos or lose.

the wii fit+free game offer finished last night the offers run monday morning until close of trade @ 4 on a sunday on entertainment,maybe next time ;-)

How much is wii fit in tesco now?
