    I'm looking for a 360 and was wondering if anyone knew of it being advertised anywhere for less than £279 (preminum pack)? I have done quite a search on the internet but they still seem to be going for £279.

    Don't think you'll find it cheaper anywhere at the moment whilst there's no competition, I imagine the first drop will be just before the PS3 eventually arrives.

    The only savings to be made at the moment is probably as part of a bundle.

    £279 for the premium is a bargain price for what you get.

    Unless a store has mis-priced it like Tesco recently did you wont find for less than RRP.

    Do you know any friends that work for shops that sell them? Staff discount is the only way I think you'll get a saving.

    My mate got me 10% off mine (plus 25% and 35% off accessories and games) as he works at Game.

    I don't think any of the HMV codes are working anymore:(

    If you do pick one up from HMV try to get a HMV Game Card beforehand, you'll rack up about £15 worth of points on a 360 Premium.

    Thanks guys, i am not surprised at the replies but worth a go. May trade in my old xbox (if i can get it working again) and all the accesories in game. Should be a good £60 - £70 off.
    I will give the hmv code a bash.

    Best thing I found to do is buy on a loyalty card. Got my 360 @ HMV (for £400 with 3 games) where they do loyalty cards now and I got £20 off my next purchase. £380 for a 360 with 3 games? Not too shabby IMO.

    first of all......£279 is a fookin bargain..

    but I know not everyone has the cash.......just get a credit card.......lol

    sorry j/k bad idea !!!!


    as folk av said sign up for a stored card...get ure 10% off or whatever then cut the thing up....

    and make sure u do that last bit otherwise you will end up paying more...if you can't resist buying more stuff therefore paying interest blah blah...

    I agree. i think they have priced the 360 pretty damn well, but with all the out of stock malarky seemingly gone, i was wondering if anyone was going to drop the price bt a tenner or 2.
    Does antone know how the game card works. i still have one from when i bought the origonal xbox. Do you still get money off?
