Previously £398.99 where they mistakenly sent two sets of Touch Controllers.

I've just ordered one of these cheaper bundles and there is no mention of 2 sets of Touch Controllers, so they must have tried to fix it by removing the extra set and messed up the price of the whole bundle.

Can't see it, only the rift at £499

All I see is the Rift at £499

You would need to keep on refreshing the link as often as you're willing to. It was the same with the original £398.99 deal with the glitched extra controllers. Every now and again it will come back into stock and be available to order (if you're lucky)! With the old deal it was like that during the week before the weekend.

This link might work better (if it is in stock). Please copy and paste the link to get it working:

Just keep on trying to refresh the link as much as you're willing to. It will surely come back.

I ordered at 18:20 then it disappeared for a while and then returned at 18:45 and then disappeared again, so no stopping it from reappearing again.

Hope so, I see the touch is out of stock. But i have found the bundle listed at the bottom of the page for £398 but that doesnt work either. fingers crossed it comes back. refresh every five mins till they fix it.

Refreshing doesn't seem to work for Currys. So far it has always given me the item list. Copy and pasting the link seems to work more often for me and has gone straight to the product page several times.

Cheers OP. Finally managed to grab one for collection.

You got one at £328.92? Great stuff if you did.

That's why I had said so many times it just depends on how much you want it. The majority of people just gave up too easily which is why this deal was expired so quickly.

​yes if you choose next day delivery for 3.95 extra

TBH I wish they would just hurry up with cancelling these.

Its pretty obvious we wont be getting it and I could do with my money back

Not so obvious in my humble opinion: at some point Amazon was saying they'd have stock arriving on the 21st and this week John Lewis also got some stock, so Currys might be actually receiving some. So far I guess that their miss-price has passed unnoticed, but if people start calling to get their refunds ASAP that might bring it to their attention and cause a cascade of cancellations.

Yeah but in the other thread people had theirs cancelled a few days later and they had paid the full price.

Fingers crossed and all that but I'd be amazed if we get them. Dont worry though - I'm certainly not gonna be ringing them up asking for a refund

But those were orders where they included 2 sets of controllers (4 controllers in total). They probably noticed their error, cancelled the orders that hadn't shipped yet and removed the extra set of controllers from the bundle. In doing so, the total price readjusted to £328.92 and a few of us managed to order at that price. I'm hopping that as it's probably just very few of us, they didn't notice or they just don't bother to cancel them and have some more annoyed customers. Fingers crossed.

Edit: Just saw they've been saying the same thing in the other thread

I see where you're coming from and I suppose there definitely is a (small) chance we'll get them.

We shall see.......

Quite small, I agree. But until we get the dreaded email there's hope I understand that no everybody's situation is the same, but in my case I can afford to have that money parked a few more days for the chance of not only getting the £329 price but also the possibility of getting the old separate bundle, with the Xbox controller that the new all-in-one bundle doesn't include.

Now you're just being greedy

Oh well... "At your request, we have cancelled this order (*********) and your refund will be with you shortly. We look forward to welcoming you back on line soon."

"At your request"? They didn't even bother to give a proper reason or explanation.

Edit: The gave me a reason after all. 15 minutes later I received this:

Yup, I received the exact same email at 12.37pm today.

Luckily I did manage to get the £398.99 bundle before this one

Still no email for me. What day did you's order?

Monday, around 4pm.
Edited by: "hotukdeals34" 21st Jul

Ah I ordered Tuesday.

Cancelation email for me tomorrow then

I've just received a dispatch notice for this. Order on the 18th Tuesday, in the brief interim that it came back in stock for £328, I asked for selected day Saturday delivery, and it looks like they're come through. So, looks like there is a chance that you will receive your rifts.

Blimey....just when I had accepted once and for all I definitely wouldn't be getting it...

Its the hope that kills you

Just got my dispatched email

What a joke they're. They cancel older orders and they deliver more recent ones (much recent, see below).

Probably the result of the right hand not knowing what the left one is doing? Someone cancelling orders in the order they were made while someone else was sending orders to fulfillment at the same time? All while nobody removes the bundle from their system or changes its price (yes, the bundle still appears as available, at the same price, every time the controllers - for whatever reason - are back in stock; again, see below).

I'd be incredibly annoyed if it wasn't because...

wait for it...

wait for it...

wait.. for... it...

out of curiosity I checked their site half an hour later and the bundle was available again, still at the same price! Because I didn't mind to keep playing their game, I ordered it again, this time for delivery tomorrow and... it's on its way!

So in the end they are going to deliver to me the same stock that supposedly they didn't have (if you haven't seen my edited comment above, 15 minutes later they sent me another email explaining why my order had been cancelled: out of stock). For an extra £3.95 for delivery, but well worth it.

Absolutely dreadful respect to their customers, how can you cancel orders saying you don't have stock while at the same time you're selling and fulfilling later orders with the stock that you're freeing? If at least they had changed the price... but no... all the trouble for nothing!

In case anyone wants to keep trying, the bundle is probably still there, a search:

currys.co.uk/gbu…tml

still says "Showing 1 - 3 of 3 results " while it only shows 2 (the 3rd one being the bundle, that reappears when the controllers are in stock). Not even counting properly they can do

Absolutely shocking way to treat customers.

If I were you, once you have it I'd give them a call, present them with the evidence and see what they have to say for themselves. I don't see how they can justify it.

Unless of course the next day delivery is a lie too!

For all I know they could be two boxes full of bricks, but according to DPD two parcels are definitely on their way to me.

Glad you managed to snag one!

Just received an email from Curry's:

After looking into your online order, I have discovered that due to a … After looking into your online order, I have discovered that due to a delivery delay, we are currently awaiting stock of the Oculus Touch controllers, these should be arriving with us within the next few days. Once we have received stock, the order will be processed and you will receive a tracking number.



Sounds promising! Hopefully others still waiting have received something similar.

Of course that still doesn't excuse the fact they sold bundles to others while 'awaiting stock', but better than being cancelled I guess.
