Any good vouchers floating around?

  • Deleted user 2 September 2006 21:03:26
    I'm looking for a decent voucher to use to get a discount on online game purchasing - ie to get a 360 game down to about 35. I know there is/was one for a fiver off HMV online, but I've heard ba-aa-aaad things about them and I'd kind of like Dead Rising to be delivered ON Friday, not the following week (which I've heard they're wont to do...)

    Heh... I registered that 'Prize Draw' mailing list thing today via the Gamestracker link and haven't had a dickybird out of Game on my email, hence the ask... I also use the HotUKDeals site too! But you know, sometimes an offer slips under the radar... ;)

    Cheers for the good links though! Hopefully others will make use of them. Anyone used HMV Online and NOT had a bad experience?

    Keep an eye on hotukdeals.co.uk for vouchers. That place has saved me a small fortune.

    You get 3 off your first buy at Shoptonet, and as their 360 games are 36.99 anyway that woks out quite cheap.

    Are they likely to churn out my Dead Rising to arrive on Friday, though?

    Things from them typically arrive the day after they're sent (and via Recorded Delivery), so as long as they send it out on Thursday it'd be there. Don't know what their policy is on sending out pre-orders though.

    Ah, recorded, you say? That's important to know, as I'm usually at work on weekdays. Is that how they deliver everything? I'll have it all sent to work if so. Have signed up but awaiting my 'validation code' (which they sent via email like all online shops do) to activate, which is a new one for me...

    Yeah, seems to be. The stuff that I've ordered from them was all sent recorded, and I've seen a lot of posts talking about it elsewhere. I guess they figure that it pays for itself if it cuts down the number of lost items (and false claims of lost items).

    I completely agree - very encouraging actually. It's no problem for me to have stuff sent to work where there's a 24 hour presence, so it's all good. I only send eBay stuff by Recorded these days after I got stiffed twice, either by the Royal Mail or by a buyer who knew I wouldn't be able to prove either way if he'd recieved his game or not...

    All jokes to one side - are shopto.net reliable then? Tempted to get the 3 off and get LSW for 15. Can't be bad.

    I've ordered 6-7 Games from them and all have been here next day, recorded delivery. if you can get over the poor site design (which is getting progressively better) then they are definatley worth your business.

    Excellent, cheers mate. Will take the plunge right now. Whilst recorded is good, it does mean that I won't be able to pick it up till Sat morning....assuming my postman bothers waiting for a sig!

    The shopto site is absolutely shocking... it lists 6 360 games, but with links to more on adverts all round the site?

    prices are good though, if only there was something i wanted to buy, i hope the offer lasts a couple of weeks more!
