Yesterday, Saturday 24/11/07 I saw a Xbox360 elite deal advertised at the front of the Zavvi entertainment group store, which was for the above mentioned items. The price advertised was £300.
I thought about the Virgin credit card discount scheme, 10% off, so I enquired and was told that I could have the discount on top of the advertised deal price. I expected to pay £270 great deal in itself.
I was suprised to be charged £262.70

On inspetion of my receipt I found the following:

Halo 3 £40
Wep pack - Forz 3 £33
Xbox 360 Elite £300
Total £373
Coupons £73
241376807300
Total £300
Discount 10.0 £37.30-
Dicount code: 13
Virgin credit card
Total £262.70

A bargain in my opinion, I thought I'd share it just in case anyone agrees.

Another Virgin Credit Card 10% off deal??? Seen it all before!!!!!!!!!!!

Good for you, but no need to share :-)

Good post, best deal for an Elite I have seen. Heat added.

Maybe bankofmumndad is not allowed a credit card by mummy and daddy?

I've got a big 0% debt on my virgin card. Anyone know if I buy this using it would the debt all revert to the normal interest rate???:?

So Zavvi still honour the 10% discount? I wasn't sure if they would...looks like they actually gave you a discount before deducting the coupon value, hence the larger 10% discount. Nice, I've got an Elite on order with Virgin but they've not dispatched it, might pop into Zavvi in town and see if they've got any in stock.

Thanks for the heads up!

Great price for a good bundle, voted hot.

YEs it will DONT do it i did and it blows. you will have to clear the balance first

i was going to get this deal but cant find stock of the elite anywhere

Voted cold... The credit card is the deal not the Xbox.

Is this only in zavvi stores as I only have virgin megastores shops near me :?
Or is it in all virgin megastores too?

Standard price of £300 for this bundle is a good deal anyway.:santa:

Where did you try? Did you ask Zavvi to check there computer for stock location?

i rang them up i will try again tomorrow

Absolute bargain if you have the card.

BargainBinMan:

Great deal thanks :thumbsup: I have some questions if you don't mind:

1) What area Zavvi branch was it?

2) On the sticker on the box, is it a 175w or 203w model? See this: altuscreative.com/gra…jpg. It'll also be printed on the sticker on the PSU.

3) What drive do you have? Press eject and check the tray against this: llamma.com/xbo…htm

Thanks

Hmm, me thinks this could be almost slanderous??

I just have seen deals the same as this before..... Use your Virgin Credit card for 10% off, this is just not a Hot Deal. It is a NORMAL deal!! yawn!

Get into debt for Christmas.....? Great!!! Can't wait!!!

Been on link nothing no xbox offers,:-( :-( :-(

just wot we want for xmas, please post more. thanks graham.

@#!'##@....in case you cant tell i'm swearing profoundly!!!! I wish i saw this deal last month as i would have saved over £50, then again zaavi/virgin never had stock round my end for almost a month....great deal!!!

is elite a limited edition xbox? i want black 360 but i dont see myself buying one again until june next year

You are making a lot of assumptions about how people use credit cards. If used in the right way you can save money and use them to your advantage as this virgin deal clearly demonstrates. Surely £37.50 less spending is a good thing…?

Maybe you can't get a Virgin Credit Card so this deal is not for you, but for others who do this is good money saving deal (I got the 60Gb PS3 Deal 2 games, controller for £303).

Technically virgin are selling the console deals at a misprice as they are giving 10% on the total package price rather than 10% off the console bundle price which gives you a real discount of 12.43% .... It all helps!!

This is more than a standard 10% deal….it’s 12.43% deal

Voted Hot (For those who have a virgin credit card and can use them in a responsible way!!)

In croydon i am sure they were selling it at £250 for this bundle (Croydon North End, Surrey)

iirc this one was the premium - 20gb hdd etc?

Does anyone know if the above specs are good or bad thanks?????:thumbsup:

I'm thinking about replacing my Premium 360.

If I switch the hard disks, will by Live account/games all be saved/active?

This is the best Elite deal available at the moment by far. Yet other threads about Elite bundles with extra controller, forza 2 and one other game for £329 are rated hotter. It makes not sense at all to me.
