    they are giving everyone who bought a ps3 at the launch price £25 off future purchases.
    you have to go to the shop with receipt before a month after you bought it

    They will give you £25 store credit, according to the Aberdeen branch - guess it'll just be put on that cool points card I got. Means you don't need to spend now! :)

    Just rang my local store Sunderland and they told me they had stopped doing this as it was only valid after 10 days after PS3 launch, does anyone have the Gamestation Head Office so I can get some clarification on this.

    Nice one!

    That done the trick - head office rang my local store there and then and arranged for my rebate for tomorrow morning.

    Those who didn't get any joy from their local store should do the same.

    Cheers OP for the heads up! :thumbsup:

    Many thanks to the OP for this! :smashin:

    I just phoned my local gamestation and after a little explaining he said to go in sometime in the next week with reciept and they'll work something out.

    But he did say that as i had bought 2 games with it as part of the bundle and therefore saved £10 that i will probably only get £15 refunded and not £25.

    Is this right?

    I traded in my 360 a week after the launch date for the PS3 with RFOM deal.

    Also realised I never got XMEN 3 with it either

    Do you think I will have any joy with either getting 25 notes or X3

    i emailed gameplay about some kind of good-will gesture like this (and amazon.co.uk's reported partial refund) last week - still no reply. kinda sucks that it's the luck of the draw as to whether you'll get anything back. random :rolleyes:

    I have e-mailed this to Gamestation HQ

    "I have rung my local gamestation in Milton Keynes to try and get my £25 refund on the PS3 that I bought. The offer is being offered at lots of the other stores but Darren at MK says that is not the case. This is not an acceptable situation as many people ARE being offered the refund and excluding customers because their local store is not playing ball is not acceptable. Please read this link
    http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=511958

    I have tried to ring today but you are not answering the phone.

    Please can you ring MK store and inform them I have posted this on AV forums so you can check the time I tried to ring."

    I just went to my local gamestation in lewisham / london and they are not doing it at all :( I am not too angry but I purchased my 360, Wii and PS3 from them so I would of assumed that a little 25 voucher would of been OK (especially as I was going to buy another game on top !)

    right got a heads up from my experience.
    i live in torquay actually got my ps3 with rfom and xmen3 from newton abbot store called them yesterday and they insisted it was only off a purchase from the shop when you come in no credit note/voucher. went in the torquay store today insisted on a credit note..wouldnt budge...told me to go to newton abbot to see if they would give me a cn/voucher..couldnt be really bothered to get other which could have been fruitless anyway..the manager said it was £25 off ANYthing from the store..well i already got rfom/m.storm and oblivion and there isnt really much i fancy on the the ps3 right now..so i went for crackdown on the 360..with discount only 15 quid...so really chuffed with that:clap: :D :smashin:

    As stated below, i went to get the £25, and the accepted it.

    However the manager did state that this is entirely his discretion, and they wont be doing it for many other people, if any at all.
