So... Your deal is exactly the same as the deal posted about the 5x Rakuten points offer then.

well not everything is as good a deal other sites may be cheaper this is a deal that is around 25% cheaper than any other deal. thought it was worth mentioning. if you dont like it thats your choice but i thought this was a particularly amazing deal for a upcoming popular game. im getting it and i wanted to bring it to the attention of others
How is it in effect £29.18? Your points come off your next purchase? Making that next purchase, in effect, £10.25 cheaper.

Any game listed on Rakuten with a superpoints return of 25% plus quidco or tcb will be the cheapest available at the moment. That's why the deal is posted to encompass everything on sale and to stop dozens of individual posts such as yours.

Yes, it's a cracking price but it's a spammed deal.

yes but if your ever going to purchase a blu ray, clothing, game or gadget in the future it is in effect saving you that much.
i can't put a deal up for every possible future purchase every person may get, telling them hey if u got battlefront last month u can save money now.

Think I'll order it on the ps4 as played the beta and enjoyed it.

Shame there is no single player on this game as purely a multi player game

If I buy it now I don't pay 29.18 do I? It makes your future purchase cheaper, not this one.

but by that logic cashback dosn't count. because you still pay the full price and dont get the money off there and then. but i believe its established on this website that cashback and vouchers can be used as example because in the long run that is the total it will have cost you

​It's not what it would cost me though. Even in the long run, the points would come off another purchase.

​1. The points expire on the 25th ( I think) meaning you may not even get the points on battlefront
2. Cashback you're getting physical cash back into your account, not points in the marketplace.
3. You're not guaranteed either the cashback or the points.

It's a good deal if you plan on getting something the moment you get the points in, assuming you get the points. My Halo 5 was the same deal, luckily the seller despatched on the 23rd October, so the points were deposited on the 31st. Really doesn't give you a lot of time. I ended up paying slightly more for Fallout (£42) which meant I "lost" some of that £10 points so it was effectively £6 points.

its classed as dispatched within 3 days even though they dont sent it till2 days before the release and it advertises on the page as 1025 points so they can't just take it away if they are advertising the deal
No campaign and £40 dlc needed another half a game at full price with dlc inbound ,6 months be on ea access
DID YOU FORGET SUPER1 MATE
please explain, how are points given after you have bought something even related in anyway to the original purchase price, little lost in translation.

Can you cash them in??

If I checkout now will I pay £29.18

You could apply your concept to Tesco Online, I ordered Disney Infinity they gave 1000 bonus points at the time, it cost me I think £35 yet clubcard points can be multiplied by 4 so £10 or 1000 points equals upto £40 against various Clubcard Perks, does this mean I didn't actually buy the Game, Tesco just gave me it yet forgot to give me the £5 they also owe me.

My bank statement says otherwise.

And messed up as I actually forgot to go via quidco on that one.

The small print says the extra superpoints are only valid to a certain date. Points are added around 8 days after your order has been shipped. This has been confirmed in chat in a previous thread where in Halos case, the points were not guaranteed. Rakuten are independent of their sellers, not their problem sellers cannot fulfill orders (even if its not the sellers fault either). It is highly possible however because TGC tend to dispatch on the Friday before release with a Tuesday release that you will get the points mine you, just not a guarantee.

No he didn't, not on gaming.
Points aren't awarded until 16 days after despatch which means they will be expired before they even hit your account.

Haha, agree this is a little spammy as I hate it when people post specific non-deals based on site-wide offers, but I never thought someone would get burned this badly!
