UK Deal Roundup for April 10th, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Amazon finally returns to the weekly deals article; their new sale and Shopto’s Easter promotion are the two substantial new additions this week. TheHut has started another ‘2 games for £XX’ promotion. ASDA, TheHut, Toys R Us and Zavvi all have discount codes. Finally, Zavvi is the only retailer to offer weekly bargains.

As usual you need to click on the name of the retailer or the name of the deal to be taken straight to the retailer’s offer page. Further details on the deals, including the best pick of the sale items, can be found in the ‘details here’ link, which will take you back to the relevant UK deal roundup that described the sale in more detail. Clicking on the name of a game will take you to the achievement list. All prices were correct at the time of writing.
