First post, hope I'm doing this right. Seems like an excellent price, if you don't mind the awful looking console!
Updated to reflect cheaper price using code - thanks ressoosnowdon and Scozo

Welcome


2 problems here, firstly the god awful design lol it is easily the worst design for anything ever....

However it is Zavvi, and it is not out until October!!! There is no chance you will get this, but heat for the chance

Nice but...
..Availability: Preorder now.
Release Date: 15 October 2013

Why cant the Mario ed be this price!

Great price - no hope of getting it from Zavvi tho.

Two questions if you don't mind:

One, do Zavvi charge your card immediately or do they charge upon shipping the item?

Second question: Why does everyone think there's no chance of getting this deal?

UPDATE: If you use code (VCUKZ100) it checks out for £119.99

Release date June 14th according to more reliable Amazon

Release date June 14th according to more reliable Amazon



it's july release as was confirmed in the nintendo direct the other day, zavvi prob not updated it

Surely they've got that date wrong. Animal Crossing and its bundle are set for a June 14 release over here.

VCUKZ100 get £10 off So 119.99!

Actually - Zavvi is now run by TheHut so you might get it - seems a suspiciously low price though.

Why can't the mario edition be released in the UK more like. Also when you say mario ed i think you mean the console that comes with the mario game but no branding on the console itself. There is an actual mario edition out here is it against the current one in the deal... [img]thebitfix.com/wp-…jpg?04b9a0[/img]

A quick trawl online seems to suggest that Zavvi take pre-order money on dispatch so this might be worth a punt!

really have no idea why I placed an order for this but clearly my brain said I needed it!

...and I quote from then Zavvi order page - "To make sure you get your items as soon as possible, we post and charge separately for each item. Please note, for Credit Card and PayPal orders, that payment is not taken until point of dispatch."

Hmm... Interesting. Still unsure tho had my hopes dashed before by them. (_;)

**** it pre-ordered £119.99 figure I can sell my 3ds and the game and essentially get a free upgrade.

Bad experience in the past – mind sharing?

Worth a punt but don't hold your breath at 119.99 it's a crazy price.

As mentioned game is due out 14th June, Zavvi just likely haven't updated the release, however out of many retailers only Tesco and Zavvi have committed to prices even if they are a fair bit cheaper.

Amazon at 189.99??!?!?

Does Amazon price match? Might be worth having a secure order to fall back on if Zavvi fall through.

By the way OP, great first post. Nearly picked up a white Super Mario 3D Land Bundle for £170 this evening.

Collectors edition was once cancelled and an email saying they no longer have this item on their site and gave no reason why. Didn't take any money off me before hand but was a let down having something advertised then for no reason removing it from their site.

Does the voucher code exclude consoles? because last time I used one for the pre-order of Fire Emblem and got cancelled because of the voucher.

They do not unfortunately, tried yesterday with another product

smoking hot! pre-ordered figure I'll forget about it then sell my littlun when it comes! cheers op, worth noting that if you have a 10% discount knocking around (I did) that takes it down to £117

very good but I don't think the boys would like it.

Thanks for mentioning that i found an old "we miss you" email from zavvi and after using that code and my zavvi "Rewardz points" i got the price down to £115.69 so i'm going to take a leap or should i say Leaf of faith and pre-order it.

Ah c**p. Just as i was about to order it...

Horrid design, having to wait until June at the earliest, pretty much standard price for this edition according to reports coming from the US...

By June or even October, the normal/nice 3DSXL consoles will be around this price.

Good find, but not much of a deal as only time will tell really...

I love the design I really hope they honour this.

ressoosnowdon

Voucher was advertised as "£10 off orders over £100".


it is HOT HOT if zavvi would honour this finger crossed

Placed a second order without the code.

What's the likelihood that they won't honour the order with the code applied? Surely the code shouldn't apply against the item in the checkout if conditions aren't met – right?

muckilla

Ah c**p. Just as i was about to order it...



Yeah says doesn't apply to consoles or pre-orders so they've got us twice... But has accted the code will just have to wait and see what happens on June i suppose ^_^

Even at £129.99 it's a smoking deal, all other 3DS XL bundles have been around £150+ (think the SRP for the Animal Crossing bundle is around £189.99)
Worth noting this bundle includes a PRE-INSTALLED copy of Animal Crossing on the 3DS and not a boxed copy.

I guess so. Be useful if they had a system to tell you this on the checkout. If you put in a code that is no longer valid then a message comes up saying so. The same thing should happen if you use a code on something that doesn't apply to this. (_;) Fingers crossed anyways.

I noticed Zavvi have the Monster Hunter 3DS XL for £165, which seems like a good price. But can't get any of the discount codes to work for it. Can anyone else get a code to work for it by any chance?

Give me a Soul Sacrifice 3DS and I'll buy it day one.

Seriously though Animal Crossing New Leaf is gonna be badass

How did you get this to work? I have one too but in the small print says cannot be used on consoles, computing etc. also when I put the code in at the checkout the price doesn't change?

Put in the "£10 off orders over £100" code, clicked to add my current "Rewardz points" in the box above discount box then i added an old code from a zavvi email. I noticed the last two emails where their codes ended on midnight have actually expired tho so if you are using them like they said those expired on the midnight they were sent out.
