Beat My Price Wants to Save You Money on Your Video Games

By sponsored on at

You don't always have time to hunt for the best deal when you're shopping online, so why not let Beat My Price do all the hard work for you? It's like having your very own personal shopper living in your computer.

If you’re in the mood for buying yourself a video game you have an incredible number of options available to you―more so than any other time in the history of the medium―and it’s all thanks to the wonderful thing we call the internet. Since you can go online 24 hours a day and have your games delivered straight to your front door, you no longer have to accept that the prices in the nearest video game shop are the best you’re going to be able to find.

Sadly the sheer number of retailers who sell the latest video game blockbusters online means you might have a bit too much choice, and finding a great deal can be a somewhat hassling and stressful experience. You can’t possibly trawl through every single retail site out there, but if you don’t there’s always that feeling that you might have found a better deal if you had been just a little bit more patient. Thankfully that dilemma is a thing of the past, and it’s all thanks to Beat My Price from bespoke offers.

Beat My Price is a brand new free service from Barclaycard’s bespoke offers, and its purpose is to try and find you a better price on video games, electronics, toys and games, film and TV, books, and computing products than the one you’d previously found online. Beat My Price has a team of partners and suppliers that will do all the hard work by scouring the web and making sure that when you want to buy something, you’re not paying more than you should.

The aim is to try and reduce the amount you’d normally spend by up to 12 per cent, and 3 out of 4 times they find a better price than the one found by the consumer. Beat My Price managed to help Andrew from Wales save 14 per cent on the Playstation 4 version of Batman: Arkham Knight. That’s not bad going really.

So how does Beat My Price work? In simple terms it’s like having your very own personal shopper that takes all the pain away from bargain hunting. All you have to do to get started is register for free on beatmyprice.co.uk and go through these three steps to get your discounted stuff:

  1. Find it: To kick things off you’ll have to find the product you want to buy somewhere online. The best way to do that is to go to one of the sites you’d normally buy from and find it there.
  2. Paste it: Once you have what you're looking for, you need to copy the URL and head over to the Beat My Price website. Then you paste the URL into the search bar and Beat My Price will start hunting the web for a better deal. You can do this up to five times a day.
  3. Beat it: If there’s a better price available, Beat My Price will send you a personalised discount email emailed to you within 48 hours of you submitting the original request. Just remember that you have a limited time period to use the discount, usually around 12 hours, and shoppers can make up to five Beat My Price requests each day.

Now 48 hours may seem like a long time to wait just to be able to buy something, but having to wait that long is a rare occurrence and normally your offer will be sent to you within a few hours. But if you need something to do while you wait for your offer to arrive, you can always check out some similar offers that other people have received. Maybe you’ll see something that you’ve always wanted to buy, but always thought was too expensive.

If you’d rather not have to keep the Beat My Price website open all the time, there’s also a little trick you can take advantage of to save a little bit of time. By bookmarking the Beat My Price button you can avoid having to copy and paste the URL into the main site every time you want to buy a new game. Just hit the bookmark when you’ve found what you want, and it’ll send off the request to find a better deal there and then.

If you don’t believe us, you can always try Beat My Price for yourself. Just head over to www.beatmyprice.co.uk, register for a free account, and see how much money you could save on your next video game purchase.

Beat My Price is owned and operated by Barclaycard, whose conditions apply.
