We tried this out last month with [prototype] and although the feedback was positive the general feeling was that the game wasn't strong enough of a title. The best of Julys expected releases in our opinion is Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2010 so we're going with this for July.
What we're doing is picking a top pre order title per month and offering boards.ie members an incentive for group buying. If we can get this up and running as a regular event we will hopefully be able to pass on any better prices we secure from our suppliers in return for the increased volume.
( there is a bundle due out on the Wii which includes the new Wii Motion Plus controller add on. This will be added to the list when fully signed off - pricing and final confirmation of release date has yet to be completed )
Any Boards.ie member who pre orders the above will receive a €5.00 voucher to spend at Gamesnash along with their delivery.
The More The Merrier Part starts here .....
If 10 or more boards.ie members pre order the game everyone gets a €6.00 voucher.
If 20 or more boards.ie members pre order the game everyone gets a €7.00 voucher.
If 30 or more boards.ie members pre order the game everyone gets a €8.00 voucher.
If 40 or more boards.ie members pre order the game everyone gets a €9.00 voucher.
If 50 or more boards.ie members pre order the game everyone gets a €10.00 voucher.
As said before anybody familiar with our cost structure will know that we will be heavily subsidising the vouchers from our own promotional funds ( would not like you to think we can throw €10.00 off everything on the site as has been suggested elsewhere )
To avail of this offer when ordering please state in the comments section of the order process "Boards.ie more the merrier offer - username xxxxxxx"
which will let us know you're in and then post in this thread that you have ordered the game. We'll keep a running total and the voucher for the relevant amount will be emailed on the day the order is dispatched.
Offfer is open to pre orders placed between now and midnight Wednesday 24th June ( so we can give final orders to our suppliers )
Remember to post in this thread once you've ordered.
Sorry Johner, our cut off is generally 11.00am to be guaranteed that days dispatch. Our collection is usually around lunch time.
@BigKev49 - doesn't matter how you pay for these offers. Even if it's by trade in credit the €5.00 voucher would still be issued.
@Both of you - the cut off point is set because that's the timeframe we have to put in final orders from so any large order numbers needed to be in by then. Uptake on this offer has been very poor again so it wasn't an issue. We will honour the €5.00 credit on your order Johner and if you want to trade in a few games and place an order BigKev49 we will do the same for yours.
