It takes a few minutes. I got 2 codes (applied twice) on the same email.

got mine now... thanks

Yep, I'll take it - may come in useful - though £50 is a big ask!

funny they have put most decent pre orders up to £44.99 now LOL

ERRRR??? Yeah so just got my email code and it states in the smallprint:

"GAME.co.uk offer code Terms & Conditions: Voucher valid until Sunday 5th July 2008."
:?:?:?

What's that all about?

July 5th, 2008 was a Saturday. July 5th, 2009 is a Sunday. It's just a typo. I already spent my voucher. It works fine.

Thanks!

Oh. Just looked at my calender, you're right.:thumbsup:

Well I'm prob the only one to read the small print anyway. Will just have to hope it ain't expired when my new credit card gets here. Hope my details don't get stolen again too:x

Yup, second time I post it. Last time it got nuked pretty quickly, but hopefully, with the holidays and all, people will have time to order one or two items before it ends.

In these hard hit times, will someone explain to me how £5 off a massive £50 spend is generous? Cold from me. But thanks for posting.

That's because you don't have the imagination to bring down the £50 amount :whistling:

I used it to get Velvet Assassin at a price of £24.99, which I think is a good price. It's £3 cheaper than shopto, who, AFAIK, are the cheapest around with this particular title.

Those are the printed terms. It works just fine on pre-orders.

if you preorder two games in my case it was mafia 2 and fight night round 4 it works up until you complete the order when you check your account it splits the order because the games come out at different times which makes the voucher invalid, voted cold as there is no way of using it for anything decent. most games can be found cheaper elsewhere so all it is good for is preorders.

quality cheers heat & rep

Mine was a split order and it worked fine. One preorder item and one in stock item. I wouldn't rule out that it won't work if you only preorder items below £50, but as far as I remember there is a £0.99 giftwrapper that allows you to include an in stock item, which would still knock off £4. And if you manage to cancel the part of your split order, where your discount hasn't been applied, you effectively brought down the £50 amount to something more reasonable

Worked fine for me: Pre-ordered Prototype and Batman - Arkham Asylum, the discount was applied to Prototype without any problems. And since that game is out before Batman I can cancel latter any time after the first game arrived :thumbsup:

I used the code to get 2100 Microsoft Points for £12.50, x3 and all three of them have been shipped today!

Thanks for going against the terms and conditions of the voucher (Only one voucher redemption per customer. Minimum spend £50.) and making people who use sites like this look bad.

Not his fault the voucher is so easy to abuse.
Especially since it gives you as many codes as you want.

Game are daft for letting him, but he's still abusing it. The rules are written very clearly and you need to intentionally get around the minimum spend limit with a trick - it's not like you bought one cheap item "without realising" and the voucher worked, you're repeating a trick multiple times! Why stop there if you see it as acceptable, why not see if you can get £5 off a £5 spend a hundred times or more. Where do you draw the line morally, just far enough to see if they catch you?

So following your logic, i would be able to pre-order Termiator Salvation and Batman using the £5 voucher and then cancel the Batman order after terminator has arriveed to get it for £24.99?

Depending on release dates and which item the discount gets applied to, yes. :thumbsup:

Decent voucher but £50 is abit steep I tried messing around to get infamous preordered with the fiver off but couldnt get it to work.

worked nicely... bought the price down to just under the cheapest there is around + unlike the hut, you know when you're gunna get the games!! worked on pre order and current title!

Hope I manage to find something else to bump up my basket, it's at £30 at the mo

I have preordered MAG, Fifa 10, Assassins creed 2 with this voucher but when I try to preorder uncharted 2 no combination of 2 preorder games work. it always applies it to the other games. any advice????

EDIT: done I also got psp LBP for £20 by accident

thanks for the code I still have 2 left

You know when you checkout where does it tell you which game the code is applied to?

Glad i am not the only one playing the system....just pre ordered 20 games using the codes and quidco on top :thumbsup:

Lol, i think i going try i again for Assasins Creed. I also noticed that you could get 800 MSP for just £1.99 if you use the code. I might try that for the Cod Waw map pack.

I hate the fact that so many people know of and use the pre-order trick, 'coz you know Game will eventually catch on and stop customers exploiting this method. Mind you, that isn't gonna stop me from giving it a go!
