Hey guys this is my first deal and thought it was a good deal for anyone suckered into GAME elite. I can't post a link because you need to have elite to get it

I know this is your first deal, but this is a rather exclusive offer and …I know this is your first deal, but this is a rather exclusive offer and only available to those foolish enough to have Elite membership (Join today £36 for 12 months!). So this deal is £14.99 + £36.00..."Our promise to you - you can't lose" - what does that even mean? Whats the birthday gift?Edit - read a bit further and it states this:If you have been a member for 12 full consecutive months, and you receive less points back from purchases than the fee you have paid for your membership for those 12 months, we will give you the difference back in points.Personally I don't see the point of paying a company an additional membership fee for the privilege to buy what they are selling !That's why I hate the likes of GoOutdoors and Matalan...


Amazon and prime only deals are exactly the same yet they get plastered all over the place... including by yourself!

They always try and sell it to me at the till. Not bitten yet...
The Elite doesn't look half bad - but always concerned that Game go into liquidation and money is lost - Heat added

Nope this deal is not £14.99 + £36.00, I know what you are trying to say but the fact is if you don't have it then you aren't going to get it just for the deal. This post is purely for people that have GAME elite and want GTA.

Parents who aren't that clued up vis a vis pricing are what is keeping Game afloat. Every time i pop in my local (when i need a jolt, those prices ) there is someone in there getting shafted buying something for their little tike.

Wish they would finally tank, they're rarely competitive.

Shame the price is for elite types only, still cant believe its not dropped to this everywhere by now.

Its not worth it unless you buy a lot games or trade in a lot. I don't regret buying it but I won't be renewing

Christmas is the only time I think they are competitive on some stuff. I have been in my local a few times and recommended deals from here to people about to get shafted on console prices

I'm not trying to say anything - for me to take advantage of this deal I need to pay £36 for membership and then I can buy this for £14.99. For anyone wanting to take advantage of this deal they need to spend £36 on membership and then a further £14.99, so the deal is £36 + £14.99...

I actually commented on a GTA V post yesterday - it was £16.99 iirc, no membership required...

Obviously this deal is not for you because you do not have elite. Same as Bure11 pointed out its similar to posting a prime only deal. I know many people have amazon prime but some don't therefore an amazon prime only deal is the price of the thing + £79 for prime.

If you took the time to read my post that "prime exclusive" deal was for £19.90 - I also quoted the cost for non-prime members as £19.98.
Good deal for elite members but the whole elite membership is a terrible excuse to cover up Games high prices and poor trade in
The difference between this deal is it's for Game and a rather narrow selection of offers. A Prime membership offers a lot more benefits than a Game Elite account.

Prime is superb - especially with the student half price offer. Next day delivery on almost anything, Prime Video, Kindle reading library, music application. Not too sure what the other guy was talking about. The Game elite membership doesn't come close.

Did I say it did? I'm proving a point that if you don't have prime but there is a good prime specific deal then the cost of it is whatever the item costs plus prime. I love prime and use it weekly as well as the music service and tv, GAME elite is mediocre but this is a good deal for anyone with it

Actually if you're proving a point be correct.
You could do a free prime trial for a month at 0 cost or a month of prime 7.99 but with all the added benefits tv music etc so not a very good comparison. Game expects you to pay for the privilege of 'saving' money at game. They don't even do price matching between the online business and bricks and mortar stores.

It's not a deal if you have to jump through the hoop of having Elite in the first place.

For 99% of the people looking at this, they'll have to spend £36 before taking benefit of this price.

By that logic should we block all deals for Costco since you need to be a member first to get the deals and membership costs money?

Amazon Prime also mentioned by others, though free trial and cancel is an option there.

Treat this just like any other deal - some you can take advantage of, some you can't

I would presume a third of the users on here have the benefits of Prime which in turn legitimises those deals.

Even with Amazon deals, the postage cost is added for those who don't have prime.
Maybe the OP should title his post in a similar fashion "£14.99 with Elite / £19.99 w/o".

Then each individual can vote based on the price they'd have to pay. Which in this case would be £19.99 for 99% of HUKD members...

No need to block deals. Just title them correctly. I see plenty of people say "cold" on prime deals and no one give a ship, just treat this deal the same way, some of us don't see the value in it.
Wow!!!

There are a lot of moany people on here these days. If the deal is not for you simply ignore and move on.

I see no one's mentioned the main purpose of the elite upgrade thing. that's the points multipliers.

it's 10% back on games & merch. instead of 2%
4% on consoles instead of 2%

so also get £1.50 back by buying this.

tbh i've never used any of the offers for discounted games like this. though i have used 50% extra trade in a few times.

I actually got it when it started back in june. I signed up for one reason, I looked at my online orders & knew i'd have all my money back by the end of september. & i did. I've had at least £60 bonus points on the card since.

Admitedly game are often more expensive than other places. but there are plenty of examples where there's not a huge difference. example being the new digimon story, £37 @ game, cheapest seems to be@ £35 @ amazon with prime. But I'll earn £3.70 from buying @ game. giving back more in the long run. plus at the moment i've got £11 in points.

then there's the fact , they tend get nintendo collectors edition excluisves (between them and the nintendo store) think bayonetta swicth collectors is only at game & nintendo's site. both £69.99. elite memeber they'll give me £7 back.

as for the amazon comparison, it should offer more benefits. it's more than twice the price for a year. I know in a very select few areas in the country you can do elite monthly @£3 a month. so that's an option for a few...will eventually go nationwide, but they like to ensure it's up running properly before going national.
