    Argos New 3DS XL Bundle Rip Off

    Argos New 3DS XL Bundle Rip Off 1st Sep 16 at 5:02 PM
    Hello all,
    Should you be in the market for a New 3DS you may notice Argos have some bundles available, for example:

    New Nintendo 3DS XL + Star Fox 3D + Yoshis Island + Zelda A Link Between Worlds = £227.97

    If you purchase this deal as separate components it comes to £221.96, which is about enough to throw a power adapter in for the same price as the bundle.

    Also, if you buy the console separately it gives you access to a deal for a case, by dropping one game from the list you can purchase:

    New Nintendo 3DS XL + Star Fox 3D + Zelda A Link Between Worlds + Zelda Case + Power Adapter = £224.95 (still cheaper than their bundle and with everything you need!)

    I've never had trouble with game bundles before but Argos have really screwed these up, none of the ones I could see worked out cheaper at all, more expensive in fact.

    Thanks for reading

    Have you tried to explain this to Argos or just telling us? Maybe their calculating machine is spannered.

    I told them and they just said 'it happens'.

    Argos, in their defense, are usually quite good for deals, as when I got my xbox one a while back, got the 1 TB version with forza and fallout for less than £300, which at the time was far cheaper then I could get a bundle I wanted, or the parts seperately.
