Gaming Bargains Galore In Big W's Family and Friends Weekend Sale (31st May and 1st June)

This weekend sees the launch of Big W's Family and Friends sale offering up a range of discounts. The headlining offers including 20% off clothing, shoes, accessories and Big W Vision, as well as 10% off everything else. Note, these discounts only apply to orders of $50 or more and must be redeemed in-store.

Off all the items on sale, the most anticipation from online shoppers that we've seen over the past week appears to be around gaming deals. Some specific examples of which I've provided below.

Important: you'll need to print off a voucher - click here - and bring it with you to your nearest Big W store in order to redeem the discount on your purchases.    



The first thing you should know is that Big W staff members don't have to comply with the $50 minimum spend threshold on this voucher (so if you can get your hands on a staff card or have a friend working at Big W...).

Two deals that popped up on Buckscoop's Deals board which you can apply this weekend's 10% off voucher to include the Wii U version of Mario Kart 8 for $52.20 as well as this Wii U Console Mario Kart 8 Black Premium Pack for $382.20. Plus Nintendo is offering a free game with the purchase of Mario Kart 8 - see here.

I must also add that in terms of Wii U console deals, Target have a very competitive offer on at the moment. They're bundling the Wii U console + Skylanders pack with Nintendo Land + Mario Kart 8 all for a total of $269 (31st of May only). This is effectively the same deal EB Games started running earlier in the week except that Target’s price is $10 cheaper and it also includes Nintendo Land.


Another enticing option is Big W's deal on Watch Dogs for $57.60 (PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360) after the discount. This makes it the second best price on the market and only marginally more than Target’s super hot deal at $54.




Although the promotion excludes all Wish Cards and Woolies gift cards, you can purchase several other store credit cards for Myer, DJs, JB HiFi, Kathmandu, The Iconic, City Beach, Event Cinemas, etc. You’ll have 12 months to redeem your gift card/s which you've bought at a 10% discount, so there's time to wait for the perfect moment to use these gift cards on special sale promotions.
