LAST DAY!!! Black/White/Pink NINTENDO DS LITE for £89.99 (£70.54 after points/cashback) delivered +

Found 23rd Feb 2007Made hot 23rd Feb 2007
The Nintendo DS lite is finally instock at Boots again but the great thing is, they're now offering 10% automatic discount on the site, bringing the price down to £89.99, then by using the 1000 points code listed below, you'll receive £10 in point making it £79.99 and also the standard 4%, which is equivalent to £3.60, making it £76.39 and going through Quidco will also give you another 6.5% cashback (£5.85), which means the total cost of the Nintendo DS Lite is £70.54 and qualifies for free delivery.

If you're not interested in spending the points instore, i recommend buying "The any sandwich, snack and any drink for £3.30.
I recently bought a sandwich that was £2.70, a chocolate fudge cake, which i think you can spend upto £1.50 and a drink, which i bought a Red Bull costing another £1.30, making it total to over £5 for something that a lot of people will need to buy while at work.

Hope that helps.

Do you need a Boots card for the points? Or will they give me one?

Yeah you need one but you can get temp cards instore but won't give you a card with your order you need to apply for one.

Good deal, but I don't think it's 'right' to count the quidco cash or the £13.60 boots points in the price in the thread title...

I'd be snapping this up if I hadn't just got one a few weeks ago!

Great price (for the sandwich!) and also the DS Lite, we got one at Christmas but may be tempted with another one for the children.

Nice deal, but you shouldn't include the quidco/advantage points in the quoted price.

Misleading price, £99 on website and probably instore aswell. As mentioned before any deals should not be included in advertised price !

You didn't have to vote the deal cold Poppy10, as i did a breakdown at all times for the step by step price, so everyone is fully aware of the price regarding however they're paying.

Hi mate, the price is the price you stated to start off with but there's an automatic discount, which brings the price down without having to do anything.

realfriendlyman, where did you get the 4% from? my final chargeable amount is £89.99

couldn't find the 4% of £3.60

4% is in boots points I believe.

4 points for every pound = 4%

I'm not being mean or picky as this is a very good deal, but it is incorrect to state £70.54 in the title. Even following your simple to follow steps, no-one is actually going to pay as little as £70.54 (i.e., even after receiving Quidco cashback of £5.85, the actual amount spend would still be £84-ish. The additional £12.50-ish is in Boots points that need to be spent in Boots).

As I say though, is a good price and I am tempted.

Hi mate,

You receive 4% reward points with the advantage card and as mentioned, if you enter the code in the original post, you'll also receive £10 in points and nearly £6 in cashback.

In order to get the card, just pop into any store.

if it's boots point then i'm only getting 1000 + 399 rather than 460. is this correct?

i have a card btw but can't find it atm.

Yep, just went through with it, the points are actually on the £99.99 and not the discounted £89.99, so it is 1000 plus 399 (you only get 4 per whole pound).

So £89.99, hopefully £5.85 from Quidco, and £13.99 to spend instore! Not buying sandwiches though!!!

£89.99 spend = £3.60 in points

Hi mate,

I think Boots always base the reward points for the full price, regardless of how much discount you've received.

Also remember to use the code to receive a further £10 in points and quidco to receive another £6 in cashback. :thumbsup:

I completely disagree - if you can't be bothered to even get a quidco account or an Advantage card then why are you even on a bargains site in the first place!?!?! :whistling:

The actual price should be mentioned up front, there's a world of difference between actual and effective prices. After various cashback schemes.

Not having to pay in the first place is not the same as claiming back Quidco cash, and points.

The price out of your pocket should be the price listed. It's ok to mention other things in the title or post body but the price you actually have to paid should be listed.

Exactly RepoMan, i mean, at the end of the day, the people that's on a deals website, has to make sure they're part of every way possible to receive maximum discount.

All i've done is notify people of the best possible price, which is supposed to be the whole point,to be able to get the best possible price by using all the advantages available.

I don't think anyone is complaining about the post...including all the ways to get extra discount is brilliant, it's a top post

Just the title of the thread is misleading, it's the same as asking people to include postage cost in the titles....otherwise you have people clicking in excitedly thinking they are going to be getting something for £x only to find out there's a £6 postage charge on top etc.

Well, I took the deal, rated hot and left rep, but I would disagree that this is the best possible price. The actual amount I spent was £90, and hopefully I will get something back from Quidco. I don't really see the Boots points as a discount, I won't ever get money back for them, so I won't ever have spent £70.54 on my Nintendo, if you get my drift?!!!

Ok, i've adjusted the title after the admins work as well and now it should be to everyones liking

Just wanted to say thanks realfriendlyman, my order was placed this afternoon. I find it surprising that so many people are moaning about getting advantage points, £13 or so to spend in boots is great, how many different goods can you buy in boots nowadays !!!! and quidco some people just are'nt greatful no matter what you do !!! Thanks again

Thank you for the appreciation, it means a lot to me and i assumed a lot more people would of liked this deal

Since when was the sandwich deal £3.30? I paid £2.99 on thursday in Edinburgh.

Yeah, most households need toothpaste, soap, feminine products etc; so it's not like you can't use them for anything!

Quidco has tracked at £5.85.

Very nice find and of course even better if you use Boots Advantage Points Thanks for the useful post!

BTW - the title is wrong -





it should be £70.15 after cashback

The meal is supposed to be £3.30 or less but if you get the most expensive sandwiches and you prefere to have nicer drinks rather than a small bottle of coke and you prefere a dessert rather than a packet of crisps, then i think that's worth it for an extra 30p.

I think the price increased not too long ago but to get 40% off my meal, made me happy.

i like to see how much each deal will cost me 'today' in terms of outlay, any extra cashback, points ect are a bonus, but are a factor to consider imho

great deal, thanks

Thanks realfriendlyman for all your efforts, taking the time to detail the best possible price and the benifits you can gain.

It's £3.30 for the meal in London, the rest of the country gets the same deal for £2.99. That's one of the only things I learnt when going down to London last month

crazy how the same retail store can charge different just because of its location, ive noticed this a few times with various stores

I completely understand, as the price should technically be the same, since it's a franchise but you have to bare in mind that stores in London have much higher rent expenses, as well as having a higher average salary, so the only revenue they bring in is through the customer, so this has to be paid by us.

That's ok then...at least until they go up in price elsewhere!

I usually get the duck sandwich (£2.30), the sparkling lemon (90p) and a packet of snack a jacks (65p) saving 86p. So, basically, drink is free.

I'm not picking nits about Boots points, Realfriendly - thanks for taking the time and trouble to post and work it out. Boots points aren't like other stuff...people ALWAYS need soap.

Well...I hope they do!
