    If you want to really enjoy it get an afterburner internal light!!
    then you really can play it anywhere.

    I can reccomend CDWORLD.CO.UK as an excellent service, they sell GBA's with Afterburner light pre fitted for £84.99
    A REAL BARGAIN !!

    They also stock loads of GBA accessories have a look

    WH Smiths on-line are doing it for £60 and I think I am right in stating that that includes P+P.

    IMHO I would not bother getting a GBA now as there are rumours that Nintendo are to imminently release a new upgraded version with a built in backlight and rechargable battery to compete with all the next generation mobile phones appearing with colour games capability.

    John Lewis have them at £59 but you can get a £10 1st order discount at the moment (it was £15 last week!) so inc p&p they come out at about £53

    At the checkout screen there is a box for promotion code - enter the word "home" and it should remove £10 from the total.

    The offer ends on 30/11

    I dont have any others - I cant understand why it doesn't work, I checked the email & it says that its valid until 30/11 & I haven't used it. Have you ordered from JL before ? this code is for 1st time users only. - you could try calling them - it says for problems with the code call their help line on 08456 049 049.

    Mac,

    Follow this link http://www.thegoodshopguide.com/xbox.html

    Although it talks about the Xbox the code you recieve can be used for any purchase over £30.

    I used it yesterday to purchase a GBA and it deducted £15.00 from the total price so I ended up paying about £48 incl P&P.

    Let us know if it still works.
