Bear with me whilst I explain this one.

I know this bundle as already been posted however this is different.

I reserved the bundle with the 500GB XBox One Forza 5, Minecraft, Extra Wireless Controller & Destiny that is advertised at £349.99.

The store only had the console, extra controller and Minecraft in stock to collect immediately. Destiny was due to arrive in store on Wednesday.

The reservations however came through separately. So there was the console, controller & minecraft on one reservation showing as £329.99 for the console and £0 for both Minecraft and the controller.

I thought I'd try collecting them under that reservation as I wasn't bothered about the Destiny game.

The assistant typed in the reservation number and told me it was coming up at £10,000. I showed them my reservation email and they keyed all the items in separately on their screen, at which point asked me for £319.99 and told me the system had taken an extra £10 off for some reason.

So basically I got the console with Forza 5, Minecraft and extra wireless controller for £319.99.

And how do I get that deal?

I did same reservation across 3 different stores that were showing 3 out of the 4 items as available for immediate collection. Each time I got 2 reservations. One for the console, minecraft and extra controller and another for Destiny. So in theory I could have gone to 3 different stores and done the same thing. I guess some of it will depend on the assistant you get but I didn't even have to ague and in the past I've always found that managers tend to be OK with you if you are OK with them but like I said I didn't even have to argue.

As for the £10 discount then if the system has done it in one store it will surely do it in the others as well.

It will work only in stores where Destiny is out-off stock.

That's correct. Sorry I thought that was clear, my fault perhaps I didn't explain it well enough. It's where Destiny can be reserved but not for immediate collection. Like I said, out of the 6 or so stores near me 3 of them had exactly that situation so I'm sure there will be plenty of other stores like those.

Just keep online reserving destiny until there's none left

Not sure why this is being voted cold. Where else can you get a console, 2 games and additional wireless controller for £319.99 other than maybe messing about at Game trading in games you don't want to additional controller or ordering console on it's own online from Amazon Germany etc.

Seems to be more discretion than glitch

There wasn't a discussion at the till other than showing them my reservation email. No argument by me saying they had to do it, the assistant never argued, I kept quiet, they then asked me for £319.99 and away I walked with the items.

Think I'll expire this then if people don't feel like it's a real deal. Thought it might help someone out but I'll refrain next time.

No no no please post again! People who are willing to work get the rewards, and hence the very best deals are normally only gotten by those who are willing to work, as they normally require something "extra". It would appear a lot of people give up the moment they have to enter a voucher code, let alone going to 3 shops!

Good deal though

Can this be unexpired then, I'll go with your faith!

All the stores have destiny in stock :-(

Reserve them all and then add this bundle, should achieve your goal

Don't be put off by cold votes, even if you help one person that's all that matters
