Thought I got a bargain this morning in Gamestation. An Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adaptor for £29.99, IF you buy a new xbox product. So, after deliberating over the in-store advertising for about 3 seconds, I chose a £4.99 game and went to the till. But they didn’t have any to sell! No more will come in, no-one else has them! Bah, humbug!
I have written to the nice people at Gamestation (below) – to see what they think – especially as there’s loads of stock on their website – not at £29.99 but at £59.99!
The Elusive Xbox 360 adaptor
“I must say how disappointed I am after trying to buy a wireless xbox 360 network adaptor from your stores. I went into the Maidenhead store this morning and picked up on you fantastic offer of buying an adaptor for £29.99, if you buy new product. I took the case to the till to be told they were out of stock, they weren’t getting anymore, and no other Gamestation in the country had them (the salesman was obviously a genius as he didn’t need to check the till to tell me all this). I come home to discover that your website has lots of stock but at the unseasonally humbug price of £59.99!
Can you tell me please how I can obtain one of these wonderful devices for the price advertised in your stores? Or has the season of goodwill come to an end already?
Thanks for your email.
Here at Gamestation.co.uk the prices and bundles that are advertised may be different to the ones that are advertised in the Gamestation stores. This is because the Gamestation website and the Gamestation stores both operated as separate entities and therefore both have different prices.
When prices and bundles do differ the store will not be able to match the price that is on the Gamestation website and vice versa.
If you require any more information please do not hesitate to give us a call on 0845 345 0335 or drop us an email.
This is just an email sent by a Robot!
Anyway, I went to the High Wycombe branch today where the deal was again heavily advertised – lots of empty packets on display but no stock. I then went to Bracknell where I was told the deal finished on the 1st! Does anyone at Gamestation know what they are doing?
Have you been scammed in the Sales or at Xmas? Let me know and I’ll take it up for you!
