Bargain Alert: Dick Smith offers gesture of good will with 30% off games and accessories

Dick Smith has copped an internet lashing over the way it’s gaming clearance sale went down. But they’re out to make amends with the community by offering 30% off gaming software and accessories until Sunday 15 April. That’s things that aren’t on ‘the list’ of clearance items and we’ve had a look at the website and discounts have been applied already. There’s no hardware or point cards included this time around and nothing is certainly $1 or $2 but there’s a bargain to be had on some items.

Here’s some good Nintendo ones we noticed

  • Kid Icarus Uprising: $41.97
  • Resident Evil Revelations: $41.97
  • Mario Kart 7 $41.96
  • Zelda: Ocarina of Time $41.96
  • Wii Remotes (official) $41.96
  • Skyward Sword $59

Some of of the discounts at even 30% aren’t the greatest compared to other stores but then some items like Xbox controllers and other high price accessories (not Nintendo related) come down quite a bit. Those pesky expensive PS Vita memory cards actually have a good discount applied to them as well. You can of course check out all the bargains on Dick Smith’s site, most of which are available to order online now.

    30% off ‘Instore Only’ – yes! That is by far my favourite game.

    I went into Dick Smith today and KI:U and RE:R are still $59.99. But they had cheap deals on other things. I got Duke Nukem Forever for $10

    Thanks for the tip off, picked up a copy of Kid Icarus. Had to get the staff to price check it though as they werent aware it was supposed to be marked down.
