Nintendo 3DS XL Console, Black - Price Match £139.99 @ JohnLewis

Found 18th Mar 2014
I can confirm JohnLewis will price match Game Center for 3DS XL Black. It may not seem like a wow deal but its rather ridiculous how the retailers are charging more for the black only colour compared to the others to push sales of the others(links below for your reference). You save £30 alone if you were to buy from Johnleiws themselves as they normally charge £170 for it.
Also JohnLewis provide 2 year warranty which makes the deal more worth while than buying else where.

*Note I also put links to previous deals which may suit you below, which include games. The 3DS XL can be had £135 at Game Center which is white only though think £5 more for this is worth it*

You will obviously need to fill in the price match form yourself. They will send you email saying they are looking into and then a follow up which should say they will price match it!

Could I do the same with the white 3ds or is the black one better? I can't decide.

I don't think JL stock the white 3DS XL, well I can't see it so you can't

Personal taste but can't understand why anyone would want a white one

I'd say they're both nice colours but the black will age more gracefully.

I've got a white one, it's much nicer than the other colours.

Considering how long this console has been out I was hoping it would've had a bigger drop in price by now.

Definitely

White = gradual and faster discolouration.

That is all.

Well when these first came out then the DSi XL was only something like £30 cheaper. (I think I paid £180).

Unlikely to go down until there is a newer better version.

why not just buy from gamescenter for 139.99? is there a reason OP?

Yes as I stated in the description Johnlewis provide 2 year warranty! Plus its well know they have great customer service and easy returns. Gamecenter on the other hand, can't say I've used them myself nor would I choose them over JL so simple reason why people would opt for this. Hope that helps.

Do John Lewis match Game Center prices even if you do not have one of their shops in your area?

Just fill in the price match form and they should tell you, shouldn't really matter if you do or don't. They'll check the prices and confirm if they will match it.

Thanks for the tip-off, have made a purchase. Have been wanting the black one for ages, but for some reason its overpriced almost everywhere. Yes - John Lewis do price match even if the shops in question aren't close to where you live. The only slight annoyance is that you have to pay full price, then email them for a refund of the difference. However, as it's John Lewis and their customer service is second to none, the refund was made within a day of asking for it. Free two year warranty too - all good.

Thanks for the tip off I purchased the black Nintendo 3DS XL from John Lewis at full price and then filled in the Never Knowingly Undersold Form and have had an email back saying they are refunding the difference. Thanks for the info and saving me £29.
