Wii Console £159.97 at Sainsburys - in store only

Found 11th Feb 2009Made hot 12th Feb 2009
Don't bite me if this has already been submitted but I couldn't find it. In my NOW magazine there's an advert for an "Entertainment Blitz" at Sainsburys (in store only) and one of the items is a Wii Console for £159.97 instead of £179.97 AND you can get nectar points on it so an added bonus.

Not sure how good these are, but they're also advertising Wii Winter Sports 2008 for £12 and Shrek's Carnival Craze for £10. Kung Fu Panda DVD, £5 and other offers too.

Any xbox's reduced?:lazy:

Went to check it out - Xbox 80Gb priced at £155 (-£15)

Hmm wouldnt class either the Wii or Xbox as "hot" unless people want faulty replacement consoles, they are both cheap because you get nothing with them. Gamestation does Wii + 2 games 179.99, and 360 + Tomb Raider Underworld or Pro Evo for 169.99. Same with Game, HMV etc

Are you saying all the Wii consoles that JS sells are faulty? :?

Can you clarify the 'faulty' comment?

I've just picked up a Wii for £156 as they took off the VAT saving at the counter.

I can still put the £24(ish) saving difference towards any game that I want rather than the bundled options.

I think he's trying to say unless your console is faulty, this isn't a particularly hot deal due to the fact that you can buy a package deal and get better value for money :thumbsup:

Are the gamestation Wii bundles with 2 games for 179.99 in store, online they only have 1 game bundles for who wants to be a millionaire 2, more game party, my fitness coach, big beach sports and more game party. Cheers

Bought a WII bundle the other day from Game with free delivery and topcashback.
The Wii console came with Wii Sports (as normal) + Ironman + Sonic Unleashed +Wall E
Not a bad deal I think....but $157 for the console + sports is a great deal from Sainsbury, giving you 42 quid to go get games you actually want.
I would have gone for this deal if it was available at then... aaarrggghhhhh:w00t:

I think they are taking into account the cost of the other games they bought.

The bundle costs £199, hence the £42 difference.

I just bought this, with vat reduction its £156.56

im gonna send the OH later to get one, just to check are the stickers still saying £179 but scanning at £159? Ta

Banned

i picked one up last night as my first one died and i managed to return it to amazon for full refund.

They are boxed up at the reduced price, and then the vat difference is taken off at the till.

thanks OP the kids are happy to have the wii back

In Gamestation I got the Wii + Guinness World Records + Boom Blox for £179.99

Got this yesterday from a Sainsburys in London, came through at £156. Have been looking at deals aka gamestation but never a game i wanted with it!

£156 is still a lot money for a console that doesn't play DVDs, has a poor selection of games, and is going to be price-cut soon.

and your evidence of price cut soon is where?

Nintendo have stated that they are against price cutting... If you search the net you will find that the Wii isnt going to be cut in price though the PS3 is scheduled for another drop in April. Wii is still selling at or about production rates. Other retailers are irritated by this in store deal as they have said it makes no sense at all.

Suggest you back up your statement that Wii is about to be cut in price. Because it simply isnt true sadly.... unless you know something that nintendo dont.

You may find a new bundle coming up for wii... but no official price cut.

do you really need your console to play dvds? surely you already have a dvd player if you've got over £20 to spend.
