Nintendo 24 Hour Spectacular - starts 24th July 12 noon at Game.co.uk

A great deal, every hour, for 24 hours, where all deals will relate to Nintendo. The golden rule to bear in mind is when its gone, its gone.

Limited to one offer per customer. P&P is £1.50 per transaction for standard orders.

Quidco offers up to 5% cashback but if you want some bargains, you have to be very quick; often OOS in minutes.

Yeah, one of the first to add a DS lite onto my basket...waited 2 minutes to get to the checkout then enter details then OOPS! page lol

great fun this!

I take it that the DS Lite in Black at £50 is a bargain? Seems to be £95+ elsewhere
Oh well, waited too long, now all gone

I was there on the dot at 12 too, when there were 40 in stock. Couldn't get through to the final checkout page in time, and saw the same error message. They were all gone by 12.02. Sigh.

Finally got on, and SOLD OUT!!!

Oh well, you can get them from Savastore in their clearance for just £53.99 so not much more than £49.99.

Edit:
Sorry I don't think Savastore is the Lite version so forget that.

Sad Mbeeching....

Word has spread so fast. Nearly a dozen colleagues are at the Game site now :grin:

I'm the lucky one then, I was refreshing like crazy, the offer came up, I clicked buy and credit card strip etc and 10 seconds of heart thumping said I got one.

Keep trying guys, don't give up just yet.
I got an XBOX 360 remote control on their last 24 hour XBOX spectacular too.

Sorry to brag

edi

I've got £7 of reward points burning a hole in my pocket too - Not to mention the fact I worked at GAME a couple of years ago :-D

[SIZE=2]Site crashed when I checked out...[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]You would think by now Game would sort their site out. Its not like they haven't done this before! :x [/SIZE]

Anyone that missed out, make sure you delet it from your basket, or when you try for the next bargain, you may end up buying a full price DS lite.

Brain Training for DS, £9.99, was 50, refreshed, then 1 lol.
Can be got for £16.99@Play.com

Got that one! just need a cheap DS now!

Dave.

kept coming up with checkout problem? any ideas

It's kinda funny (not so if you're getting frustrated, apologies in advance) they have a one hour sale, with it seems 40-50 units on offer, and they go within the 1st minute of so of the offer.

Seems a strange way to do this, since the final 59 mins of each hour are wasted as folks get frustrated.

Perhaps one *great* offer per hour and some, so-so ones to pass the time, since folks are just gonna get angry with this failing and simply give up.

That's just my 2p anyhow

I wonder when they will have a Sony 24 hour spectacular? lol

£12.99 @ movietyme.com so only a £1.50 saving.

i really wanted the game for my DD, got one in my basket then it crashed and when i managed to get back on they had all gone :x

Just ordered one from movietyme though £12.99 delivered

The DS lite price was amazing but what chances of getting one? Hmm...

I got a cheap 360 in my basket last time but already had one - I just tried out of interest.

That was thoroughly enjoyable, 50 in stock and straight through to checkout no prob. All I had to do was click the radio button to set my delivery address, enter my three dig code and hit the drop down box to use my reward points. GUESS WHAT?

I even managed to get back through to the checkout again at the reduced price but once I'd entered the 3 options again and click to order but lone behold - out of stock

Do GAME think this is a good marketing method? Even though it attracts lots of traffic I can't say it puts them in a favourable light in these eyes.

I think Play is [COLOR=Red]cheating[COLOR=Black] big time!!!
I won't waste more of my time with offers you cannot purchase...:x
[/COLOR][/COLOR]

Hahaha New Super Mario Bros! 14:00:25 SOLD OUT
It's not even that keen a price at £19.99 but i'm intrigued to know how anyone's blitzing through the process so quickly.

I'm beginning to think they had the best deal 1st and hope to keep folks enticed at the thought of that deal coming back.

Seems I am not the only cynic about this, but to be fair, some folks seem to have got bargains

I too doubt they'll top the inital DS Lite offer, but I was cheesed off at getting the checkout error for Brain Training, as after reward points it would have cost me a mere £6.49

:x Got through everything again, clicked on confirm it took ages and yet again came up basket empty!

Dont know how anyone manages this, all my detail are already in the system so I dont have to enter much more.

Anyone feeling brave/angry enough to ring their customer services and ask questions?

Just don't play their game, that's the best advice I can give you!

Of course they put the best offer up first to entice everyone to stay hooked!!

But I believe there will be another one coming up... for the White DS Lite or perhaps one of their package deals. May I dare venture.... midnight? It is a 24 hour sale after all!

Woohoo!!!

My order for a DS Lite at half price went through!! So see... it is possible to get something out of these deals

Well I never! They through another handful of £49.99 DS Lites to the crowd at 15:00 - anyone lucky enough?
