Tesco Direct is now accepted pre-order for ‘Diablo III’ on PlayStation 3. This may mean something to you, although frankly it means nothing to me!
What DOES interest me is that Tesco is offering 1,000 bonus Clubcard points when you pre-order a copy for £40. That is worth 2,400 Avios or 2,500 Flying Club miles, plus the base points from the purchase.
The key here is what you can get for the game when it is released, in order to recoup some of your costs. Tesco only accepts pre-orders from games which it expects to be massive hits, so in theory you should be able to resell it easily. You could use eBay or sell directly to CEx.
If you could get £30 for it on eBay (so, say, £25 net of all postage, ebay and Paypal costs) then you would have paid £15 for 2,400 Avios, which is a pretty decent deal.
The link to the game on Playstation 3 is here. It is released on September 3rd, but Tesco will charge you immediately and add your 1,000 bonus Clubcard points straight away.
You can also pre-order the Xbox version here although that is not released until December. The price is also £40.
It is worth noting that the 1,000 bonus points comprises a 500 point bonus for pre-ordering Diablo III and a 500 point bonus for spending over £30 on pre-order video games in general. This latter deal will also kick in if you buy any other pre-order game.
