    Thanks picked up 6 Switch Games for free delivery.

  • Hi Op any chance of getting Forspoken pre-order back in stock? It's already sold out

    • -1

      According to the email I got, there wont be any restocks in the 2hr period. This deal is similar to what they had last year

      • A bit bizzare that a pre-order of a game is sold out? It's not like we're preordering consoles here

        • +1

          Pre-order quantities are still limited. The manufacturer can't produce an unlimited number of copies for the release date. Normally we don't sell out before release but with the buy 1 get 1 free sale it can happen.

  • +5

    Note: if you pre-order multiple games with different release dates, they won't ship out until all has been released.

    • Like last deal, you can ask them to split the order and pay the postage

      • They didn’t do this for me I had to wait about 3 months.

        • +2

          We realised this was a problem so we've updated our terms to be able to arrange separate shipping. Sorry it didn't work out for you last time.

    • -1

      did they ship last time? seems like a good deal?

      • +2

        They did ship out, just had to wait until the last game was released.

  • Good prices, but I want Trails and anything else.i get with it releases so far apart…

    • They don’t understand the concept of preordering a game. It’s a joke to be honest.

      • Normally it wouldn't be an issue because you could order games separately and receive them as they release. It's just because you're wanting to bundle them together for the sale. If you contact [email protected] you can arrange separate shipping.

        • +3

          I did contact you guys and offered to pay for seperate shipping but you refused and said to wait or cancel.

  • Thanks, just got Splatoon and Mario Strikers

    • +1

      and now they've been cancelled…

  • This looks really good but just be aware; a boardgame I added to my cart has since been deleted from the store before I could purchase it. No searching brings it up and the url I had starts to load then redirects to the main page now.

    I hope this isn't indicative of the whole experience because I have just past this on to like 10 friends and some have already started making purchases :/

    • -1

      Will have gone completely out of stock or they didnt want it as part of rhe sale

      • Still makes me feel too wary to make a purchase now. There are items showing no stock so I don't see why that would be different for some items and not others.

        And it's a whole store sale so if it's not actually the whole store then they should have said something.

        • Wary of what?

        • +3

          Sold out pre-orders stay up so people can refer back to the release date. In stock items that sell out are removed from the website because they are no longer pending from the manufacturer.

          • @Elrikal: Thanks for the clarification, I'll see if I can find something else to get as a replacement.

  • Can't add more than 1 Astral Radiance booster box pre-orders to take up the offer. Reading the other comments, this one looks like it's a "too good to be true" for most products, either "out of stock" suddenly or not able to process.

    • In the same deal last year I ordered 2 * ring fit adventure as everything else was out of stock and figured I could give the other to my gf but they ended up canceling the order as apparently I couldn't order 2 of the same item.

      Suspect maybe they are actually enforcing this rule on the website now if you can only add 1 of the same item to cart?

  • +2

    Not sure what everyone else was after but I found there was almost too much to choose from, yes some items where OOS and I didn’t get a chance to finalise my cart because I did not realise this finished at 2pm sharp only after seeing it at about 1:50pm.

    BUT if people did make successful purchases then this was a great deal, just a shame it was so short, it made it a little unobtainable because my cart price changed mid entering my details ;(

    • -1

      Not unobtainable, you just missed the cut off.

      • +1

        If you read the full context of what I wrote, I was defending the deal and making reference to my own personal circumstances where I had 10 minutes to search the entire site, find what I wanted and input all my details to finalise the purchase to have the price revert in the middle of this process.

        But if it makes you feel better I would edit my original wording to “Hard to obtain” if I could.

          But if it makes you feel better I would edit my original wording to “Hard to obtain” if I could.

          Doesn't bother me what you write.

          Isn't hard to obtain either. You just missed the cut off time.

  • +1

    Expired while I was checking out

    • Same, understand it has to expire but wish it would hold while your inputting your details.

  • Wow great length

  • Makes you wonder how much margin is on video games if you can do buy one get one free on pre orders

  • Thanks op. Managed to get 4 switch games. Wanted more but they were sold out.
    Hoping they can be posted out separately at release. I have emailed customer service. Thanks again!

  • Crazy deal, was tempted to buy some figurines and other things. Yeah unfortunately didn't realize it ended at 2pm and was only 2 hours.

    Do they have such a big sale often?

    • Unfortunately looks like the last time they did a sale like this and included pre-orders was July 2021.

      They did one earlier this month but it only went for an hour and was at midnight (a time I would be asleep) so they are good sales but hard to catch.

      Hopefully we can drum up enough demand for another sale?

      • +1

        Thanks for letting me know!

  • Limited myself to in-stock only so I didn't spend too much, it's great to see a pre-order deal back on again though!

  • +2

    Just got an email with cancellation for Mario Strikers and Splatoon 3. It was in stock when I ordered about 3 hours ago.

  • +2

    Order cancelled and refunded. Damn.

  • Got cancelled and refunded here too. That's unfortunate.

  • My order got cancelled.

  • My order got cancelled. Mario Strikers and Xenoblade 3.

    • Looks as though because XC3 is sold out - Mario is still there. I had the same combo.

  • Whats the reason for the refunds?

    • "Unfortunately, due to the high rate at which video game orders were being processed during today's Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale, some pre-orders have exceeded our stock allocation and as a result, those orders will be refunded immediately."

  • Cancelled both my orders. Mario Strikers & Kirby + Splatoon & Rabbids

    • They cancelled your order or you cancelled it?

  • +2

    Two of my switch games got refunded due to exceeding allocated stock levels.

    To Elrikal (associated with DX Collectables): Not sure what e-commerce platform you're using, but I suggest setting max stock inventory for each item.

  • +2

    Splatoon and Xenoblade cancelled, not sure how when it's a preorder. Maybe if they can't order more stock just set a limit? Poor form imo

    Not sure how I can take back my up vote lol

    Apologies to those with video game orders that have been cancelled. Buy 1 Get 1 Free always gets a massive response for video games and our system couldn't keep up with how quickly orders were being placed. Once our stock allocation from the manufacturer has been exhausted we're unable to order more until after release. The number of orders that were cancelled was a small percentage of the total orders during the sale but I understand that doesn't matter to those who missed out. This is the 3rd time we've been able to offer Buy 1 Get 1 Free and hope to be able to again in the future. If you're subscribed to our newsletter you'll be notified of all our major sales. You can sign up at the bottom of our homepage if you'd like to participate next time.

    • Thanks for your responses from this post.

      It was a very good deal regardless, don't think I've seen deals this good for games and other merchandise from other companies.

  • +1

    Got a cancellation on order as well but doesn't say which item has been cancelled.

  • +4

    Ordered early AF and still Kirby order got cancelled. Good marketing ploy, don't think I'll try my luck another time though

  • -2

    None of my orders have been cancelled. I ordered around 1215 before I posted

  • +3

    Anyone else that did not have their orders cancelled? Feels like bait and switch, just my opinion.

    • My Mario Strikers + Splatoon 3 got cancelled, but my other order with Xenoblade 3 and a figure hasn't been cancelled so far

  • Sucks people with video game preorders got their orders cancelled it seems
