UK Deal Roundup for January 31st, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 6 years ago
The new (or returning) sales start to kick in this week. Play has started another ‘two games for £20’ promotion. Shopto has restarted their PC and Xbox 360 offers after a break for a couple of weeks. TheHut’s Fitness sale also reaches the point where it is worth mentioning again; they’ve also started another Pay Day Price Crash. As far as completely new sales go, only TheHut’s ‘games for under £5’ is worth a mention this week. In other more disappointing news, only TheHut has a decent weekly offer. Shopto’s Weekly Bargains aren’t worth a mention this week, and the Star Buys have disappeared completely. Hopefully the latter is only for a short amount of time too.

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.

To start off the new sales of the week, Play has started an offer where buyers can get two games for £20. Buyers can mix and match between different platforms, but here’s a list of Xbox 360 games that can’t be bought for less than £10:
