Should help some of you gamers out ;)

i only found this thread because I was trying to find out what Rakuten is these days!


Has anyone done the £15 free points that came via email yet? Or are you gonna?


I honestly don't get what Rakuten even is these days. I preferred them when they were a shop.


I got an email with £15 worth of points, no minimum spend.


And GAME tracks purchases as net of VAT, so you would need to make a gross purchase of £48. At least if you create a new account you will also get the 500 points bonus on top of the 1200 points for this promotion.

So you can only buy dvd or blu ray or do you mean streaming? Also did you just click through the link in email then buy? Did it give you any information about you have joined/qualified for the £15 deal?


Yes me. It gave me the points, but can I only use them on film


??Anyone done the £15 email deal?


What happened when you clicked through the link and it worked? Like you it just directed me to site I thought you then just make a purchase? Did the link take you to a page with the offer details on or anything else? Worried now it has not registered for the £15


It was my work firewall weirdly, works on my home internet.

The Death of Stalin £3.45 on Rakuten TV (or free with Wuntu)

The Death of Stalin is a 2017 political satire comedy film directed and co-written by Armando Iannucci. It stars Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Rupert Friend,… Read more


Superb film! The sliminess of some of the characters and range of accents (Non-Russian especially) made it even better, for me. I can't recommend it highly enough.


Maybe mention its a rental price, some people get very irritated very quickly on here. Good movie! I used my wuntu credit for the rental. Thanks for the heads up.


Try Mr's Browns Boys, probably more up your street. (y)


That says a lot more about you than it does the film. 8)

Hello just ordered one of these. How do I watch the movie im new to all this but have no idea how to access teh film?thanks


Ordered and arrived yesterday, really love it! I use Stremio (with JuanCarlos2 addon) on my pc to stream movies and tv shows, and an app on my iPhone called “Chromecast” that streams videos from almost any website. Basically, I didn’t even care about the free movie on Rakuten, all I’m streaming isn’t really legal, and this is the reason I wanted one. Cheapest I saw it was a couple months back, I think it was £19.


Can you point some links please? Thanks.


It's always this price (lol)

Just ordered thanks :)


My apologies, you are correct. The speed increase is still there and as rufnek says, it support 5ghz WiFi. I still think this is a must upgrade for anyone who uses their gen 1 often as it can be sold for £5 - £10 or repurposed to another TV.


I ordered a Google Home Mini from google store last week, it said free delivery within 5 days. It arrived next day.


This will be the normal. Main upgrade on the first iteration is the ability to connect to a 5ghz network.


Is this the ultra or normal?

How do you get it for £28.99 ? - Showing as £29.99. I know it is only a £1, but every little helps.


Still available. Just bought


Just got this. Had the option to turn on Auto Renew to get one month free (after inputting the code into my Xbox One X.) I selected to do so, then simply turned off Auto Renew. Therefore, I got an extra month for free. Thought I’d share ...


buying this, am I subscribing to movie rental service which will need to be cancelled or is it a one time deal/purchase?

Yeah - they did this before - They never give points for two running weeks So my deal is now expired basically - Thought people might be able to get codes today but not happening :(


The whole Wuntu this week is rubbish.


OK, so there's another Rakuten offer from Wuntu this week, but it looks different. It expressly says it is for '1 movie rental in standard definition up to £3.5' (sic). It also says there is a list of 'eligible titles'. Looks like the list is at https://uk.rakuten.tv/lists/family-time Pretty rubbish kids films by the looks of it.


lol (y)


OMG what exactly do you think I am lying about? Not sure whether to feel privileged in some way that you've wasted one of your precious few comments replying to my post, even if it is an unjustified, defamatory and libellous response. Anyway, you don't know me and I don't want to know you either! See you next Tuesday!

Last year in July in store, i got one too.


It's been off and on for forever mate. It was £21.99, then it increased to £22.99. They always pretty much have one active at any given time.


Well that's fair then. But 100 is not very many all things considered

Awesome. Just bought for the missus!


Didn't work for me.


Anyone know if you can use your points balance to pay for these?


They do - https://www.apple.com/uk/legal/internet-services/itunes/uk/terms.html My understanding (disclaimer: I'm no expert), is that it's largely in the hands of the media distributor/studio as to which providers can offer their content, and for how long - they seem to be mostly fixed term deals which, at expiry, are either renegotiated/extended, or the provider has no choice but to stop offering the content.


Nice find, those terms helped a lot, thanks. Do iTunes have similar terms with their movies?

Seems to be offered at 100% cashback via TCB at the moment.


Is it value for money? No


It's a terrible movie not worth 79p lol


It's a good deal on a not very good film so you could jump either way (I went hot).


Blame the studio for that, Snyder was half way through the film and they fired him but decided to keep him round for a bit longer. With the mistreatment this made Ben want to leave, so we got so many rumours of him wanting out, he still does tho sadly. Snyders daughter took her own life just as he finished shooting. He previewed the film, the WB exec's said it was great, was 3hrs long tho. He needed to minor reshoots but then they took him off the film altogether. Got Josh W to come in and finish, he wanted to big changes tho. He was made to cut the film from 2.5hrs to under 2hrs, the VFX were nowhere near finished and a lot of the people working on the film wanted it pushed back for a Summer release. A certain WB exec said no as WB merge with another company this year and are unsure who gets to keep their jobs and this exec wants his bonus so basically we ended up with an unfinished film, cut from 3hrs to just under 2 and a new director who hasn't been there from the beginning.. WB exec's have been screwing these films over and over again, BvS was better with the U edition but is still missing a lot of scenes. He only killed Superman off as he wanted Batman to be the one to recruit everyone and Steppenwolf only comes to earth as he believes there is no one to out match him now. Suicide Squad was also messed up, original script had them going against the Joker only. Having the people who edit trailers for living, edit the film was also a huge mistake.

is it possible to get more then one of this deal? I've just used the link and registered a new account, then used this link again, but this time with my login details. I was able to buy this again, but the T&C puts me off a bit "All Xbox Offers are limited to 1 xbox live card per user." Has anyone purchased more then one of this?


Sorted it. Changed the console location in settings to US, redeemed the code, then changed the console location back to UK after. Bit of a faff though. And a bit cheeky they don't mention that in the offer.


So I got the code immediately but when I try to redeem it it's saying code is from a different region. What do I do? Is there a workaround or am I going to have to hassle rakuten for a refund?


Thanks for this, wasn't really interested in the movie, just the good deal on xbox live :D


Nice! I was waiting for the offer on the dashboard but never came back :( I've done this and also received an extra month (party)

As far as I am aware its always been the same titles I believe its because they are out of print (or whatever the technical term is) as you can pick them up for free from other services as well along with other films of that age.

These have been free for a while now.
