Just got my from Cambridge branch, need to combine a couple of tricks to get this discount.

Retail price of the 27 inch iMac from Apple is £1749.
Amazon is currently selling it for £1439.10, amazon.co.uk/App…1PT
PC World is price matching to Amazon (as long as it's sold by Amazon): pcworld.co.uk/gbu…tml

And the ongoing Morrisons promotion means you can get PC World gift cards 13% off (buy £50 voucher, get £6.25 worth of Morrisons credits): hotukdeals.com/dea…455

- Buy £1450 worth of PC World voucher from Morrisons, which will get you £6.25 x 29 = £181.25 of Morrisons credits as your saving.

- Go to a PC World branch asking for the 2017 iMac price matching to Amazon, use all the vouchers for the payment, and you will get £11 or £10.9 remaining credits.


- Total actual spending for the iMac is (£1450 - £181.25 - £11) / £1749 = 71.9%

In fact, if you have a cashback credit card, or other workplace perk scheme that gets you discounted Morrisons Vouchers, the saving is even more. e.g. Use AMEX cashback credit to purchse PC World Gift Cards from Morrions will earn another £18 or £36 -ish (1.25% or 2.5% x £1450), and I know NHS has 4% off Morrisons Vouchers perks, which saves you another £58, and will make the total purchase more than 30% off.



RISK WARNING:

No one know when Amazon will change its price, and it may take some time in purchsing all needed 29 x £50 PC World Gift Cards from Morrisons. Therefore if you really want to go for it, check Amazon website before you do the PC World gift card purchase, and get then straight to PC World asap. Good Luck.

Does anyone know if this reduction matches the performance reduction after the MeltDown and Spectre patches??

Maybe, but as the CPU is never the bottleneck for me, I just don't care, I do need at least 32GB Ram though, but that's something beyond this post. lol

No reduction in core performance at all. Safari may take a hit of 1.5-2.5% in performance, but I'm pretty sure that'll be fixed in the next major release of MacOS.
HUKD peeps are amazing real out of the box thinkers. Thanks Op.
What did the people at both store checkouts say?
You have posted an amazing deal chaser ..just what we need here.
easy to post a yellow sticker ,or an Argos deal, but no one can get it
all credit for an excellent example of why we joined ..a real deal .
Not voting either way, imagine getting lumbered with all those pc world vouchers if something doesn't work out.
Very innovative and I doth my cap for those that erode currys pcworld profitability
sterling work keep it up

just looked and price from Amazon is now £159
You're still spending £1450 at Morrisons so need to acknowledge that initial outlay. Granted you will eventually get the £180 back in Morrisons with More vouchers but it's not instant.
If you want a very expensive machine and can be @r$ed it's a good reduction.

Expensive yes, but not overpriced compared to competition. Expensive is completely subjective.
Great post but a Couple of points...

Morrison's - you can only earn £100 'more points' per month. The card promotion ends this month So a way to get around this is to split across 2 more cards ( diff accounts).

be careful about buying work place vouchers (ie vouchers for Morrison's)- most shops will not let you buy gift cards for other stores with vouchers - not sure about Morrison's.

Also John lewis offer a price match and will give you a 2 year warranty. Their vouchers are also includes in the Morrison's offer.

I have just done the same with macbook pro. RRP £1249 but £1149 in Argos with further 10% off bringing to £1034. JL price match with 2 year. Bought £1000 JL vouchers from Morrison's and got £120 more points.

So brings it to £914 - saving of 27% against rrp.
Haha great deal!! However does the currys cashier have to swipe 29 £50 gift cards! Dont think that would go down well
Not in the market for an iMac but good effort nonetheless! Heat added
Amazon is selling for 1600?
Great effort - heat from me!
Do not buy these iMacs. Only purchase built to order as only those models have the SSD drive. These models are treacle slow with the Fusion drive and are a waste of money.

I have a 27" iMac with Fusion drive and it is not slow at all! Boot and application loading times are very quick as frequent functions are kept on the SSD drive and only little used items are kept on the HDD which make up the Fusion drive. I don't feel my SSD only MacBook is any faster.

Who cares if it goes down well? It’s their job
This would work for any product from pc world. Not just the Mac. This is how I got of iPhone X lol. Good work mate though
PC World checkout with multipl gift cards are fine, no complaints from the cashier, but it would nice to just warn the people behind you that it's going to take a while and better to join other queues.

Morrisons checking out is also fine, as long as you are not in Cambourne branch. As some mentioned already in previous post, you need at least two Morrisons More cards to accumulate all points.

Also, I can confirm Morrisons own gift vouchers (like below) can be used to purchase third party gift cards without any problems. Only issue is those discounted gift vouchers (not for everyone, ask your employer if your company is enrolled in a perk scheme for those) can not be bought instantly, you have to wait for them to arrive by post.33054834-xkrVN.jpg

It seems Amazon's already withdrawan the record low price, I'll just mark this as expired, hope some of you had managed to get the bargin already. Or those who haven't done so, you can track Amazon's price and set a price drop alert from camelcamelcamel.com.

Happy weekend shopping guys.

I would keep an eye on that statement, even Intel have finally admitted their fix causes a 2-14% slowdown in some processes (but doesnt say which ones), even on the latest ranges, which are supposed to be much less reliant on the duff coding.
Now, it may well be that the slow downs are in areas that the normal user will never notice; AWS are reporting a 30% increase in cpu usage after the fix, but say they have enough spare capacity to avoid slow downs for customers.

Programming language also seems to be an issue; there have been reports on some coding forums about various things, including Python slowdowns of 30+ %, with one guy reporting a database slowdown of 47%.

One other thing, Intel are now admitting the micro-code fix seems to have made some Intel cpus unstable; so another fix is being fettled as we speak.
Very nicely worked!
