Remember to pay your VAT when you pick it up.

this isnt very accessible to anyone.... so cold from me i am afraid, if it was in a normal store then hot, but unless your planning on flying somewhere its no good

hot hot hot hot

probably refering to me, dont get me wrong this is hot if your going abroad, but, hardly anyone will have access to this offer so cold.....maybe i should have refrained from voting as its hot for some and cold for others

Can we post every other VAT free deal available from the airport?
I don't really see the point in this, but if others do then fine.

+1

I don't think anybody would go to the lengths of all this just to save a few measly pounds off this deal.
So not much point in this.

Hot for those who get the chance - but hardly accessible to the majority. Also, you might want to put duty free in the title.

Depending on where you are flying, it may even be cheaper to buy it in the destination country and bring it back LOL... Be warned that on some flights the box may be too big for hand luggage so leave space in a case - and you may not get through without paying duty. I guess it's not really a hot*UK*deal then though ;-)

haha so you should, it was very brave... have a sticker haha!

I think you have to be flying out of Europe to get tax free goods, not sure though.

You are correct, duty free does not exist within the EU

thegroutch;6223835

do you need to be flying to get to it?



Not true if you work at an airport you can buy this

v2drinkers;6223868

Duty free - So only available to those who are off on holiday anyway



See above

dunfyboy;6224180

Wrong!!! its not part of your duty free allowance because they are actually vat free, and strictly speaking all they do is reduce the cost by the VAT

Exactly but as previously said this is actually vat free not duty free, desipte being called duty free, confusing ehh.

Currently considering getting a new ps3 with batman for less than £215 airside

Not really sure about the 'duty free' side of it and whether you need to pay it on entering the country but if you don't then its still a good deal.

You don't HAVE to fly to get this deal, you can always get a friend or a rele to buy one for ya if you knew they were going on holiday...You might just have to pick them up from the airport when they come back!!

I work for world duty free at Gatwick airport, so can confirm this offer. This is Tax free, and is available to anyone travelling anywhere. You do not pay duty on items such as this, only cigarettes, tobacco and alcohol, which you can only get DUTY FREE for if you are travelling outside the EU.
As mentioned, there is a free shop and collect service, where you can pick this item up when you are back from your hols. YOU WILL NOT PAY ANY EXTRA FOR THIS (OR THE TAX THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE PAID)
As mentioned above, you only need to know someone flying through who can get this, or someone who works at any airport with a HMV in, to get it at this price.

Wow a pretty decent deal actually, A LOT cheaper than RRP and includes 2 extras

Hot from me. Same price in the Channel Island HMV's I would imagine.

Chris

Thats a good deal, ignore the moaners who aint going on holiday and who obviously dont know anybody who is going to go anytime soon. The site is all about highlighting good deals where ever they are found across the UK.

I certainly wouldnt have thought about getting a PS3 from an airport before this post. Heat Added.

Or perhaps using his mobile phone at the Airport :whistling:
either way credit where it's due op hot from me
Enjoy your holiday..........

is this offer confirmed at hmv in an airport other than gatwick?

PS. Rumours are surfacing on the Interweb about a 250Gb PS3 Slim machine being available in October 2009 possibly to coincide with the release of "Gran Turismo 5".

An official announcement (from Sony Computer Entertainment) is likely to be made at the Tokyo Game Show (24 September 2009).

Nor would I. Im flying next week so will try to buy this then and collect on return. £30+ saved. I see no difference in this deal and ones that refer to local Supermarkets
There are a lot of negative people on these boards that make people like myself reluctant to post deals!:x

Gran Turismo 5 will not be released in October 2009, there hasn't even been much information about it as it is apart from a few test videos.
Don't expect it before December, although a best guess would say around February 2010

I didn't say it was going to be released in October... just that the rumours are hinting at this.

I had read earlier this year that it is being pushed forward to December 2009 but next year would have been the preferred release date... however, by then will anybody care? If the development team hadn't taken the decision to test drive each & every vehicle themselves then this title could have been released at least a year ago.

To keep momentum (in press & public concern) going it may be an idea to offer pre-release/beta testing access to those who pre-order the title or purchase the 250Gb PS3 Slim.

The PSP-3000 bundle & the Collector's Edition of the PSP release look interesting though.

Picked one up yesterday from Heathrow Termial 3 - Great Deal................Thanks

I bought one from Stansted, they had a few deals there, the 2 I remember are:

£212: PS3 slim + 2 games (2 from choise of 3: 2 assassin's creed, quantum of solace and one other which I've forgotten)

£217: PS3 slim + batman


Thanks for the tip off OP, I'd never have thought to look in "duty free", most of the bargains there ended years ago.

heat + rep

At least someones talkin sense on this after reading some of the other comments in this thread. Have some rep.

Great deal and have some heat and rep OP too.

:thumbsup:

This looks good, particularly if you don't have to fly out too far to qualify for duty free purchases. Shame they don't have a website! Heat and rep for o/p and spic.
