Xbox One S with Minecraft games bundle £149 instore @ Sainsburys

Thinking this apart from the Tesco glitch a very poor Black Friday from the companies. All prices pretty much back at full price and then offering discount. Most items only about 10% less in real terms. Should just be 1 day madness that a week of dribs and drabs with utter rubbish we can’t sell products. Yes got some decent deals but realistically not the premium items I wanted.

Where was this? (Obsviously sainsburys)

Sainsbury's Beeston - Nottingham. Two left in stock.

Hmmm... I just got one for £99.99 "from gameseeks cyclonic deals so think this is pretty cold...

I was in the Swansea store today and overheard some managers saying that they had not sold any xbox consoles.

I think they were expecting to sell loads but the deals were not good enough - so maybe this has caused Sainsbury to drop the prices across the UK to off-load these.

I went to my sainsburys superstore earlier this afternoon and it was priced at 169.

As Amy Winehouse once said... "they tried to make me go to rehab and I said no no no!"

Sorry, don't know if it's nationwide. They also had the Forza 3 Horizon X Box One for £170. The Assassin's Creed version was sold out.

This is normally 300 odd quid, and down to 289 at Argos on their sale. This is a good price for what it is otherwise.

Think your mistaken with the Minecraft Console not this deal.

thats literally what its says in the title.. minecraft console. if this is not that deal, then i think it should be clearly stated as such in the OP. Not being pedantic ofc :-D

Was actually thinking of going to Beeston yesterday but probably wouldn't of looked in Sainsbury's, I usually end up in Tesco. Added some heat anyway as its a good price, kind of shocking to see how much its come down in price since last year, I paid £220.

Today Im torn between going to Tesco in Beeston or Argos in Heanor as everywhere in Derby is out of stock of the console bundle I want. Im guessing there was no other console bundles in Sainsbury's worth the journey.

I'll be heading to Ripley Sainsbury's this avo for the weekly shop so will let you know if I see any. I'll hide a box in the freezer section next to the frozen veg.

I got excited for a second, I thought it was the Minecraft console not a Console with Minecraft. Still a great price mind you.

Buy something you do need

Hot.

Went to our local store and it’s still 179 - this seems to be a local store offer only

Omg how the price have fallen.

Microsoft wants to kill sony! Doesn't like their soup textures

I just realised that these prices have made the original xbox one completely worthless. People are still trying to get £150ish for them. Probably worth £80 at most. Doesn't even have 4k player inside.

This version of the xbox Minecraft bundle was discontinued and they brought out the new version. Might explain why it's so cheap

How did you manage this? Sat watching their cyclonic deal for Battlefront 2 for 29.99, clicked button immediately as counter hit zero seconds to be told there were no more copies available at that price, I don’t think it would have been technically possible for anyone to proceed through the cart process in 1 second.

THIS DEAL IS NOT AVA

Could not find this deal in Sains

Not sure how it works, had plenty of those situations since they started doing those deals tbh, but have bagged Pokken on the Switch, Project Cars 2 on PS4 and now the Xbox One deal, so they are available, just lucky I guess!

It's also worth mentioning that when I got this deal Sainsbury's are also doing 3 months Xbox Live for £8.99 if you buy an Xbox console. Thought that was worth getting so I picked it up too.

169.99 at ours

Reserved the X box One S minecraft bundle for £169.99 from Sainsbury yesterday and went to pick up last night - the box shown in this post was waiting for me upon arrival which wasn't the one i was expecting. This one was indeed £150 but when I checked the box seemed to refer to it as an Xbox One and not a One S - they are different. The impression I got was that the one listed in this deal was possibly the older Xbox One which is a bigger unit etc (perhaps shoulda opened the boxes to compare them but it was all a faff by the time they had gone and got the properly labelled Xbox One S (which is what I bought)). OP may be worth checking out !

Battlefront 2 will be a fiver preowned in a few months. I paid full price for the first one on launch day and was disappointed

Ahh .... nice.... glad it worked out ok, I shoulda opened the box. My £170 bundle from Sains is going back though as I've now ordered the minecraft bundle from Tesco with Forza 7 and 3 months xbox live (£170) so kinda around the same price as this £150 deal as i wanted a couple of games for the boy on xmas day. Good price on this deal then

'Good deal!' this is a banging deal. I'm thinking about getting this myself and don't need it...
