Default DSi the cheapest place to buy

hi,

Sorry if this is already posted, ,my little one whos 4 has just lost his DS so rather than buy another one I thought it would prob be best to buy the new DSi, does anyone know the best and cheapest place to buy one ?

I've already phoned game and they are only doing the trade in two games for 25 towards another DS game, you cannot get the credit to use towards the DSi console, otherwise I was going to take in a few old games and get some money off it but I have now phoned three diff shops and they all say they are not doing this deal towards the DSi, does anyone have any other deals ??

thanks
natasha

Not sure when it is on but Game were doing half price DSI if you trade in any DS with a charger so a cheapie or broken one off ebay would do. HTH

hi

this may be of help to you if you have some old ds games or know where you can get some cheapish, you can trade 12 games in at game for a brand new dsi or 2 games for 25 instore credit, hope this makes sense, there are a few exclusions like there are 4 games they will not take (the argos ea games pack) also PLEASE RING your local game as there are some that are not offering this offer, just to let you know this is genuine as i have traded 24 games in for 2 dsi's plus some new games the kids wanted, there is a huge thread on hotukdeals about this http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/37076...s-games-get-a/

hope this helps

Have you tried somewhere like gamestation or a supermarket? Gamestation do alot of second hand items and you never know you may be lucky enough to pick one up (especially if someone has got one free with a mobile phone deal or won in a competition and trade it in for money or another item).

Good luck with finding one!
