UK Deal Roundup for July 24th, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Before we begin, I must apologise for the lack of a deals article last week. Due to a general cable fault, I had no internet at home and was unable to get last week’s article done. Nobody else could take it on at such short notice. However, things have returned to normal, or at least have somewhat returned to normal for this is my last week writing the UK Deals articles. When I started the article 15 months ago, I had much more time to devote to finding deals than I do now. It has got to the point where I feel that I’m no longer able to do the article justice, so I’m passing on the baton to Don’t panic, there will be a sales article as usual next week.

Now, we move on to the usual order of business. This week we see substantial new sales at Play, Sainsburys, Tesco and TheHut, while Amazon reignites a long running sale with a fresh list of games. Amazon, ASDA, HMV, TheHut and Zavvi start smaller promotions, while Zavvi also continues their random promotions. Shopto and TheHut have weekly offers. 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. Clicking on the name of a game will take you to the achievement list. All prices were correct at the time of writing.

Starting off the new and weekly offers of this period is Amazon, who are offering three figures for the price of two. The figures range from £6.99 to £9.99 each. This offer ends Thursday so don’t wait too long to take advantage.

The site has also finally updated their bargains. Their PC bargains offer Dead Rising 2: Off The Record (PC) for £7.99 and Vancouver 2010 (PC) for £2.94.
