PS 2 plus free eyetoys game £50 instore

235
Found 24th Feb 2007
Currys will be selling slimline Playstation 2s with eyetoys game for £50 from tomorrow (sunday 25/02) morning, when I discovered this not even most of the managers knew so theres a very good chance of getting a console, as you are allowed to reserve them also.

This is nationwide, so I assume it will also be on the website, they will also be selling ps2 games from 47p

Nice to see some praise for retail staff:)

Having worked in retail myself,folk are very quick to gripe at the smallest of mistakes and not so quick to praise good service.When you know that you have made someone's day,you leave work with a lovely glow of a job well done.

Glad to see folk getting some bargains who missed out on the Asda deal:)
Was talking to a lad today who used to work for Currys. He said that they used to get a daily(?) list of clearance stock (starting at silly prices like 47p). The stock would usually be hoovered up by staff, but sometimes customers got lucky. Yesterday my husband spoke to a really helpful member of staff in Crown Point, who let him pick what he wanted from a stock list, and then went and fetched it from out the back. I think success at getting your hands on bargains is also down to persistence and or helpful staff who are prepared to go that extra half mile:-D :thumbsup:

He was on home territory, so i hope he was on his best behaviour;-) We live down in Dorset now but he is from Leeds (he was up visiting his sick Mum)
In fairness - yes he was polite, 'cos he was on his mobile to me at home, so i could be a back-seat shopper:whistling: and he didn't buy the wrong stuff:giggle:( i worked in retail at various levels for about 12 years and so he knows my views on customers being abusive and impolite :viking: )
Been away for the weekend and missed out completely :-(

Went in two stores - one had a bin of "reduced" items, none of which were reduced.................:x
hi damienloveselin
spoke to all the local stores to try to get my hands on the 7inch screens for the ps2 but i was laughed out the store - have you got the number for who ever you spoke to so everyone can see if they can get their hands on a set too - glad someone else blagged a fab bargain from curry's
cheers ukdangerous
The 7inch tft screens are made by "madcats". There was only 2 left in the Carmarthen Store, and the Llanelli store didnt have any. Im currently in work-will check my receipt when I get home and let you know of any product codes! I phoned up the general Currys enquiry line and the customer service person put me through direct to my local store.

Forgot to mention the screens are multi-fit and will also fit the x-box and another consol that I cant remember off the top of my head!!
hi damienloveeslin - have you got the sku code as i have just phoned one store and they said that if i had the code that they would honour the price at 49p - also any other details such as the store number they were bought at and their phone number - many thanks

I have phoned this number and a very annoid lady answered saying that this was not the currys number for the above store, and said the number changed 3 yrs ago... - have you got any more details which would be able to help me ie the model number etc - many thanks

Yes - that would do for him. The store can just type that in rather than the sku.
Hi
found out the correct no for tyhe store, and the bar code would be great if you had it - many thanks ukdangerous
picked one up in ealing also 2 controllers 1 multiplay plug 1 remote controll and loads of ds stuff also reduced all came to around £60 what a bargin. i got the ps2 buzz pack great find.:thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Glad to hear everyone is grabbing bargins, unfortunatley my store only had the console and some controllers no games etc for any console that cheap. However a very helpful member of staff at a GAME store gave me an 8mb memory card free with some games I bought.
After bagging a PS2 Buzz Pack for £49.97 in Worthing I also managed to grab a MAD CATZ V5 XPLODE thing for 97p and Mad Catz Xploder Lite2 for 99p from my local PC World in Guildford, I thought I had got all the bits from this clearance I was going to find.
So to my amazement I have just taken delivery of this
currys.co.uk/pro…571
Oh and a couple of pence off with the 5% discount code. Bargain
I was sure there was something wrong with their site when I was going through the order as I opened up another connection and this item was showing as out of stock. So I was sure that they would cancel the order.

Currys thank you 45p for that delivered by DHL. Bet they made a profit on that :oops:

Did you order the steering wheel on-line or get it in a store bargain bucket sort of thing?

857202000004857

It is the first one.
just called every store in area - all are saying that the top barcode you gave is too long, and the bottem one is too short - Help - as what they really want is the sku code - many thanks
Just rang Madcats the barcode is 728658060800

If you find more then 1 feel free to help me out at currys in my area havent even heard of them
A lot of stock has now been put back up in price since yesterday as Currys have made such a huge loss on the items. However the ps2s are still scanning at the same price, and can still be found, I bagged another one yesterday for a friend.
Did anyone get an SKU for the Console plus singstar or buzz?

Did anyone get an SKU for the Console plus singstar or buzz?



Convoluted answer, go on the MSe board, same thread as this, find post with the links to the Currys web page, SKU numbers on there.

I found that taking the list to the checkout worked best as you could watch the screen.

If they don't have any ask them to see if anywhere nearby does.

I found mine this way.
Nothing in Harlow, Chelmsford, Colchester or Ipswich (PC World and Currys) just in case anyone was thinking of wasting some silicon infested petrol. Picked up the last few bits and bobs, nothing spectacular to report.
Are they still £50?
Still more bits and pieces out there......

from the Currys.digital store in Guildford yesterday I picked up the following
for my bargain £50 PS2

Victorious Boxers game = £2.97
Premier Manager 2004-05 = 97p
Fifa Football 2004 = 47p
Xploder V2 = 47p
AR Action replay cheat system = 47p
Madcatz extension cable = 47p

Still had a few of the £2.97 controllers and loads of little bits for PSP's and DS
Bought a slimline from currys digital in Chester today with eye toy 3 package for £49.97, they said it was the last one
Hi

Does anyone know if these as still £50. I have rung around currys and the have some in stock, but they said they start at £89. Do they scan for £49.97? Please can someone help, I really want one of these!

Cheers tom
Given that the PS3 is round the corner, and PS2 games are looking ever so dated now, I really think £90-£100 is a steep price to pay. £49 is a fair price I'd say, especially given they will be making money from accessories and game royalties. :thinking: I dont really see it as a massively hot deal - but I really struggle to see how they can justify £90+ for it nowadays.
no they dont scan for £49.97, all the ones at £50 bundles long gone im afraid
I bought a slimline PS2 with Singstar yesterday from Currys Digital in Swindon for £49.97. The guy said he had about 7 or 8 left. They no longer show up on the website or if you phone up and speak to the main helpdesk, so phoning each branch is the only way of really knowing.

It is also available in a pack with Buzz game for the same price. He also said he had some base units at £39.97 each.
