Wii U games from £4 - £15 at all Asda stores - read description

Found 23rd Dec 2017Edited by:"grooty"
I know there have been my many posts on here for the odd Wii U game, but thought I'd post this to help others.

My Asda has not stocked Wii U games for over a year now, so I asked a member of staff is they had any in the store room - he said no. However, he told me to ask a RUNNER at the front of the store to check the CUPBOARD. I didn't have a clue what he meant, so he explained, the staff at the front are RUNNERS and they have a CUPBOARD with all the games in.

I couldn't believe it! There was a draw full of Wii U games!!!

I only bought six, there were others there, but I only had what I needed and left the others. Most games are £4 or £5 for selects and others are £10 or £15.

So don't forget, ask the runners at the front of the store and not at the back or desk where they sell them.

items in stock which they aren't advertising. that's either nonsense or really bad retailing.

I'm honestly very jealous. my local has no stock on the shelves or in the drawers. I was evesdropping on someone asking the other day. they'd clearly been watching these threads.

I'd have happily trampled them for the stock.

There was nothing in the draws at the back, you need to ask the runners at the front of the store.

The description adds little.
This is a repost, it gets posted pretty much every single day.

It's the same at my store. When asda were doing cheap game deals 6 months ago, I looked in their cupboard and found games that weren't even on the shelf

I'm not going anywhere now! If I'm passing tomorrow I'll call in but I wouldn't go out of my way - it's nice to know that bargains are to be had in a local Asda and not one halfway across the country!! I'd have had wooly world too! Haha.
Not all Asda stores as I scanned lots of items that were meant to be reduced at my Asda and they were still all the ticketed price
As I've said before check the drawers
Take it you haven't heard of Haxchi. Heat tho for the prices.
Leyton ASDA had a couple of Wii U games earlier today...Super Mario Bros. was there earlier

What prices did you pay for which games please? Where they all the select versions?

Thanks
Not all stores keep them at the front. And a lot that do are very unhelpful or useless in regards of helping you find games.

Very true ive tried a couple of times and got some from the drawers which even being told everything would be on the shelf ie dummy boxs ive pulled ones from the drawer i had an idea was recuced and said these arent out etc
ASDA Bootle is the same. The items on store shelf do not match their stock. All the consoles and games are in a "cage". If you try and buy anything they have to find the girl with the key. This can take 10 - 15 minutes. Then they tell you they don't have any in stock even though the store shelf has lots of boxes. When there were reports of £90 xbox one's I asked them to confirm the price. 20 mins waiting at customer services to be told I would need to wait another 20 mins for the girl with the key to get back from her break. Best to phone later. I spent 40 mins waiting for someone to answer the phone. Only to be told there was no FIFA 18 bundles (which had lots of "buy me" cases on the store shelf). They only had rocket league bundles (which had no "buy me" cases on the shelf). But the rocket league bundle would not scan so she could still not tell me the price !
Was in an asda that had pes 2010 for wii for £10 a couple of weeks ago, must be a lot of stuff that just ends up sitting in the store room and gets brought out eventually.
Asda are so ridiculously stupid when it comes to gaming retailing, and have been for years.

When will they realise that they will never, ever in a million years sell stuff that is not on the shelves and that they make impossible for customers to know is available to buy.

You can’t say in the description that this is all stores, because that’s simply not true. The Asda I popped into had Toad and DK, but both scanned at £15, not £4.

Congratulations on finding yourself a rare bargain

It could be they scanned at £15 because someone has put them in as 1st release and not select others have got them at this price in other posts, so rare is not a word I would use, maybe unlucky
