You can pre-order the Nintendo 3DS for £199.85 at Zavvi now, and both colours are available at this price. In the email I got, it advertised still getting a free case. But as confirmed by another user, they have none of those left.

2% Quidco or Maximiles (iPoints) also available ordering through Zavvi. Your card does not get charged immediately for orders at Zavvi, nothing is taken out until the item is dispatched.

Unfortunately a lot of the latest vouchers for Zavvi state that consoles are excluded, so I don't think you'll find any that work. *UPDATE* I just tried the £6 off £60 voucher code (QUIDSIX), and it actually worked. Despite saying that consoles and electronics are excluded, the price reduction was applied. So you can pre-order for £193.85! I don't know if this is an error which may soon be fixed though, so you should probably try while you can. The voucher runs out at the end of this month.

Still, with or without, it's a great price from a great retailer. I hope you liked my first post.

Not sure about the free case, they had a separate webpage for the 3DS with free case which seems to have disappeared when they dropped the price (most likely too much of a loss in profit to have both the lower £199 price and free case).

I would assume the free case is now only for those who have already placed a pre-order when it was £217.

Very tempted... have it in my basket with code applied. Wonder if it can be cancelled if a cheaper deal shows up?

Yeah it can be cancelled.
I've cancelled a great many 3ds pre-orders since Janurary 20th.
On almost every site by now.

£222 with street fighter. Not bad.

I cant see these dropping below 190, and at 193 its pretty close. But could see deals including accessories popping up for around 195 so I dont know what to do lol.

Not too sure about any of the launch games. I wish Zelda or MGS had been in there Street fighters always a good choice, could see its price drop a lot though once its released.

EDIT: Just a note, after I ordered I got a confirmation email and it showed an advertisement of their offer of 199.85 with the free case, so maybe it does come with it

None of the launch games appeal to me. The only game I wanted was Puzzle Bobble, and I'd also get Resident Evil eventually. But neither of those are out on the 25th =( So until those games are reduced now, I'll just be using mine to play DS games with analogue control finally.

@smecky01 - yeah that's the same advert I saw. I ordered Pokémon Black & White with another Zavvi voucher about 10 minutes before, and saw that in the confirmation email I got. That's the picture I posted, but it doesn't look too clear.

Useful code, thanks

This deal should be hotter, should put the price with discount code applied in title...

And yeah I ordered Pokemon white from zavvi too, £23 with voucher, great price

No case, but 194 is as good value as we'll get I'd say.

Okay, I'll remove the part about the case and put the voucher price. Thanks =)

You can lol, two seperate orders with two different vouchers =P

One for Pokémon Black & White for £51.70 then use the £5 off voucher to make them £23.35 each.

The other for the Nintendo 3DS for £199.85 then use the £6 off voucher to make it £193.85.

That's why I was so happy with my bargains that night =)

Sorry should have explained, I got Pokemon and used a 15% off voucher from the Britvic (Reward Your Thirst) deal a couple of weeks ago.27.85 reduced to 23.67 I think it was, not sure if you can still get the RYT codes now though. Was a good price

Problem is, I see now that Zavvi have reduced Pokemon since I ordered, was 27.85... now 25.85, if I could have used my RYT voucher against the new lower price, I could have got it for 21.97... so im not too happy about that, I wonder if they would change it for me? I have messaged them to find out

oh i see ;D any luck ?

No luck whatsoever this is the reply I got after messaging them asking about reducing the price:

"Hi,

Thank you for your message.

The price you pay is the price stated at the time of ordering.

You are able to cancel this order and re-order at the lower price, but please be advised that this will put you lower down the pre-order list.

Regards,

Lorraine"

Dont want to loose my place in the pre-order que

The amount of times I've cancelled my pre-orders I'm probably last.
