UK Deal Roundup for January 24th, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 6 years ago
The Christmas and New Year sales are starting to end, but very few retailers are beginning new ones to replace them. Play is one of the exceptions, as their Winter Sale is replaced with a Warehouse Clearance. Toys R Us have also replaced their ‘Games for Under £10’ promotion with a Special Offers promotion. Otherwise, only Shopto has weekly offerings.

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.
