if this isn't a good deal can someone explain why ?
I'm considering buying it for the kids... can I get it cheaper elswhere ?

thanks

Using voucher trick would get £10 off surely, if you bought £100s worth of vouchers and got £10 free.

Then youd get package for £109.97 plus another £10 voucher to use on something else.

Price is misleading.

as the post says, "essentially" that's a DS Lite, Essential kit and a game for £99.98

people applied the same principle to the Beko TV yesterday... what makes it so different today ?

you could, depending on the price of the 2nd game, buy 2 games, DS Lite and essential kit for £119.97... is that a better deal ?

Ah ok I guess if you've used that wording it is correct.

Not having a go but title would read better as £109.97 plus free £10 voucher.

I'll heat it up.

I think we heard it here that voucher trick doesn't work now.
I think the specifically said it doesn't apply to vouchers (although wording is not clear) in terms.

You need to be lucky to get vouchers from a sale person who is not aware of this.

You seemingly can get the Pink Console, Essentials kit and Fifa08 for £109.99...please don't shoot the messenger! I daresay the price might revert to £119.99 when you pay for in store?!

I think you need to be unlucky to find a sales person who doesn't understand it is allowed.
Regarding the Beko deal from yesterday people are still posting about collecting their TV's today and using the voucher deal.

My store told me that i couldn't have a voucher if i bought 100 pound of Gift vouuchers.Is this not breaking the terms and conditions they have given?
Giving up hope on getting a DS from John Lewis and looking to this deal,without the kit and game,as i have ordered an R4

It contravenes the terms of their conditions "Excludes the purchase of gift vouchers using gift vouchers as a method of payment"
Yesterday, my husband bought 100.00 worth of vouchers (in cash). He received a gift card for 100.00 (could be used from the day of purchase) and another for 10.00 (which couldn't be use on the day). Having checked the back of both cards, i couldn't find anything which confirmed what he was told - but hey - i got the tenner gift card :-)

you could have used the voucher trick to get the DS and a game (worth up to £20) for £100.19

buy £100 in vouchers (get £10 free), then use vouchers to buy DS + donate 20p to cancer research to get you over the £100 (amount set by Argos) and get another £10 voucher free
you now have £20 in vouchers to buy a game :-D

I plan to do this tomorow, figured the essential kit is a waste of money for me
