Thank edi for another good code, i just got Guitar Hero 2 for £59.99.

i wonder if this will screw up like the last one (or is it the same?) and then play will overreact and close accounts again!

Anyone know of any glitches with it yet? lol

Banned

is this something illegal or what ?

whats the cheapest thing they sell?
xbox ive 12months + vision camera for 49.99 arggghhh!

have to see if the HMV offer for 5/10% off still works to get it for 47.50 or less

I suspect it is the same voucher as the last one but now fixed so that it works like it was intended.So it won't screw up like last time as it can't be abused like last time.

Yeah. This code has been working ok for couple of days now

See PS2 thread

What happened last time with the code? was it working on orders for less than £50 or something?

I'd show you the thread,but i can't see it,must have been deleted or something.Basically it was givinig £5 discount for EVERY item in your order,even ones that were priced at £5,so as you can guess,some folks were hammering it with orders like 10 dvd's at £5 each and expecting to get them for free.

Providing you had over £50 worth of goods in your basket and used the code it actually deducted £5 off EVERY ITEM, rather than £5 off the TOTAL.

Therefore peeps were abusing the error left right and centre by adding over £50 of goods with items in their basket of £5 or less, therefore trying to get over £50 of goods with zero spend!

Thanks for the info

Might order a passport harddrive as they have one for around £50 or £60 so at least a £5 off is something

excellent timing, was just about to buy a nano from them, this will come in handy.

edit2 - spotted it - what a tube - sorry

A tad bit off topic, but I wouldn't buy a Nano right now unless you REALLY have to. Apple are most likely to release the new line a couple of weeks.

Did anyone actually have their accounts closed, mine wasn't, in fact my order is still showing processing.

I did however receive the e-mail from themn telling me they were cancelling my order.

i dunno but it was probs the people who put £5 dvds in to get them 4 free
or if u did that they havent got round 2 yet

imo you shoudnt steal anything or attempt to play the system in any way
vouchers are okay cos bosses know they will get to the public
but trying to get something for nothing is stealing and therefore wrong:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Play will now say actually it was supose to be 50p off :giggle:

you could put £50 worth of stuf in the basket, enter code, then once ordered cancel everything but the item that got £5 off, if thats use to anyone.

i did this, got Darth maul Bust from £19.99 to £14.99

Just used voucher and saved a £5 on a phone. Very Cool. Ta

Dont think anyone's account was actually closed. Few have been told but subsequently accounts were made active

Big thanks to edi this works fine, just ordered a mobile phone and i thought i would give it a go, £5 knocked off straight away.

same here...all items in my order still shown as processing lol

Can anyone tell me were the codes go please:)

I think it has a voucher input box on the right hand side of the screen somewhere during checkout.

Thanks Smashed ... another question :roll: i have ordered two things one is awaiting stock the code has taken five pound off the one in stock, if i process the order then cancel the item not in stock would i still get the five quid off do you think ?????????



ok have processed it will see:whistling::p

:whistling:

Fantastic :thumbsup:

Grumble Time!

Ordered a Asus 22" mintor from Play on B/hol Monday, got back from work Tues pm to find a email from them to do a security check, so I call them and give them chapter & verse on me and my card etc.
Get back from work tonight (wed) check the account, to find its status is declined, so I ring them and they are still doing checks? wtf?

How long does it take to process a mail order transaction, oh let me think?

card number - check
expiry date - check
security code - check
1st number from address - check
postcode - check

Authorised! (or declined if you haven't paid your bill :-)

I order from other retailers, dell, aria, ebuyer etc etc , no problems they process the order, card within its limit, no abnormal spending patterns.

Are Play just completely incompetent? or some mickey mouse outift, am i going to have this problem every time i order something over £20 from them?

Jeez it is a £200 monitor going to the cardholders address , I could have bought it from aria for £10 more and I would have it by now.
:viking:

Just ordered some memory in time for holidays, and saved some money.
Hot and rep, thanks

it works, ive done it befoe, did it this time to get my Darth Maul bust down to £14.99 - just as soon as the order was made i just cancelled the other items, and it just charges what it states.

play arent all bad.

Can this code be used more than once?

Though that wouldn't make any difference anyway, as even if it applied to another thing in the order instead, the end total would be the same :?
