[CVG] Xbox One price slashed by £45 with coupon trick  

post #1 of 8

Retail chain Toys R Us will deliver an Xbox One for £383 if customers take advantage of a new coupon offer, representing a saving of £45.

And Sony's PS4 UK price is cut to £311 (a saving of nearly £40) if the same trick is applied.

Games deals blog Savvy Gamer has discovered that customers can receive a 10 per cent discount on their next purchase if they buy certain items.


One of the cheapest qualifying items is a plastic Xia Xia Shell, worth £1.

Following the purchase of this, the 10 per cent discount can be applied to either the Xbox One or PS4. Toys R Us is retailing Microsoft's next-gen system at £420, which is already about £10 below the UK RRP, while it is selling the PS3 for the £339, also £10 less than the announced RRP.

The additional discount deal brings the Xbox One price down to £384 delivered (plus £1 for the Xia Xia Shell), and the PS4 price to £312.

Nice.... PS4 ordered!!

EDIT: The title of the thread should be changed to include the PS4 so other members of the oc community that want a PS4 wont miss this good deal.

I would be amazed if they didn't just cancel all of the orders. As soon as they catch on they will exclude the PS4 and Xbox One. Plenty of loopholes like this have come up in the past and very few end up working in the end.

It actually has already been changed. Clearly says it does not work on pre-orders.
