£100 premium !!! Even fleabays cheaper:x

Can't believe all these retailers are ripping off the consumer. I've been a loyal customer of Scan for some years, but I'll think twice next time before purchasing. I know there a business looking to make some cash, but this is a seriously poor deal.

yeah, i wouldnt expect this from scan

Have just removed them from my favorites list. It's the second online retailer i've done this with....absolutely disgusting. Will never buy off them again....seriously.

I used to like these guys, but ripping off customers before christmas....
well I suppose this is capitalism, but short term gains aren't always wise.

I'll never use them again either.

i cant understand why this is posted as a deal i have brand new uk wii console with wii play and yet i was not allowed to advertise it for £250 on f/s forum so why is ?

Advertising this has drawn attention to the company and vilified it hasn't it. I wouldn't place an order with a company who is out to make a massive mark up out of desperate parents, who are looking to buy this console at any cost, because it's what they're kids asked for. If you want to jump on that bandwagon fine, but don't expect any free advertising on this site. It's a CONSUMER site.

Apparently, the wholesalers are ripping them off.

Next we'll hear Nintendo is ripping the wholesalers off :whistling:
In the end, some people are crazy enough to pay those sort of prices

You've got a good point there, it would be interesting if Admin have commented on this anomaly. :thinking:

Nintendo Wii rrp £179.99
Wii play + remote rrp £39.99 ( I think rrp is not coming up on amazon as it's oos )
Postage £19.50
Paypal Fees £10?
So you could advertise it for £249.48........

Scan are advertising a wii with an RRP of £179.99 for £281.99

but I would not be able to put up a For Sale ad for one priced at £185 plus postage and fees(if applicable)

Go figure. :thinking:

Thank you for your feedback.

Our suppliers increased our buy price for the Nintendo Wii consoles therefore affecting the Retail price, this is an unavoidable consequence of supply and demand and we do not have any control over the buy prices set by our suppliers.

Upon receiving this news we immediately released this information through our web site to give new customer's who had not yet placed an order the option to place the order or not. We then placed an order at the new buy price to fulfill the demand for this product.

We honored the old pricing given to the outstanding order's we had already placed order's. I would understand if we had accepted an order, taken payment and then charged the existing customer's more for their pre-order but we have not.

Upon surveying the market we have found our current Retail price to be very competitive compared to other UK Retailers making our Retail price actually very good.

New customers would have been fully aware of the price paid when their order was placed and 5800 customer's cannot be wrong.

Best Regards

That would, of course, have been illegal and you would have found yourselves in deep doodoos with trading standards.
But then I'm sure were fully aware of that already before implementing such a kind Christmas spirited policy :thumbsup:

I understand it is the customer's choice to buy at that price, I also understand the concept of supply and demand in a free market. Having said that, taking advantage of 5800 desperate customers is something that is morally wrong!

Thank you for your reply..

To re-iterate our Retail price increase was due to our Buy Price increasing, which Scan does not control.

We have certainly not taken advantage of any customers, we are not the only Reseller for this product, the customer has the choice to buy from which ever retailer they choose to, if we were the only reseller then you would have a point but we are not.

Check out the market, we have ..have you ?... We are still one of the cheapest out there but we have been singled out - Why ?

On the other of course we could have made the decision not to stock this product once our Buy price increased but why should we?, we are a Business at the end of the day and this is not simply a case of a Retailer increasing its Retail price to provide extra margin as it is being made out to be.

We are not the bad guys we are simply providing a premium product, we have the stock, which our customer's have been happy to pay and positive feedback has been received because we have the stock.

Further more if we had chosen not to sell this product then stock would have gone to the other UK Retailers who are actually charging more than us..

There is not much more I can really say and if anyone still feels that we have taken advantage even after I have shown otherwise then this really is unfortunate.

Best Regards

Are you trying to shoot yourself in the other foot too? :roll:

I bet your supply price hasn't increased because you're importing these consoles from Europe. Eastern Europe I would hazard a guess! Poland maybe?
Western European Wii's come with an English manual, yours doesn't.
Am I right? Please tell me as it's not often that I'm right :-(

You seem to one of the very few who are charging such a high price for the console only.
You have listed originally included items in such a way that they seem like extras out of your kindness!
You haven't even bothered to include a couple of rubbish games as a token gesture. Other relatively less unscrupulous retailers at least do this ;-)

I have and you're one on of the worst offenders.
You're selling an Eastern European console, on it's own, at an extortionate price.

This is simply a case of a retailer increasing margins. Had you just admited that then I'm sure people would have more respect for you as a business than trying to justify it rather unsuccessfully.

You're the bad guys but if people are paying for your increased margins then I don't really have a problem with that.

You have, as stated, looked at the market. Care to list the retailers that offer a worse value package than yourselves?

Not doubting your word but maybe you ought to change your wholesaler, Wilko's managed to recently sell there stock of Wii's for £169 and Argos have been selling their stock at RRP of £179, either these are selling at a massive loss or they have a reputable/reasonable supplier.

I agree, you shouldn't be singled out you should be put on an official 'Nintendo Wii Hall Of Shame' list along with Gamestation, Microdierct, Dixon's etc.....
