FREEGIFT

Surely as you are not actually availing of the free gift by deleting it Maplin would be within rights to cancel any orders placed. Looks a bit dodgy. Can't see them honouring this if they suddenly get bombarded with 10,000 orders all looking £15 off a £39 spend.

I can't register a Northern Ireland postcode! Pitty cause I agree that is defintely worth a try. The worst they can do is cancel the order! Voted hot.
#10

#11
fantastic spot - paid via paypal and theyve taken payment of £45!
also oxygen8 the northern ireland postcode worked fine for me..i just didnt put county in the box as it had no northern ireland counties...
thanks alot op!
#12
Great Price.....
#13
Good price - just don't want a USB external drive that needs a power supply!
#14
You can use this glitch for other hard drives such as this internal 2.5" 640GB one for £45 as well:

This is the email i recieved from them:
"We would firstly like to thank you for your recent order but after reviewing it's contents, we have discovered a minor anomaly that surrounds the free gift promotion currently on offer should you spend over £39.00.
After investigation, we have found that your order does not actually contain the free gift of the Plug-In Power, Energy & CO2 Meter (Maplin order code N67HH). I am sure that this is an oversight and we can look to provide an option to remedy this situation. However the FREEGIFT voucher does have strict guidelines when being used and applied to an order. I have added the Terms & Conditions of the vouchers below.
What we wish to look to provide you is with two options.
1. The order can be reinstated with the same items you requested with the addition of the free gift but we will have to look to process the order at the correct purchase price.
2. We understand that due to the issues that have arisen, you may now wish to cancel your order and obtain a full refund.
It is understandable that there may be some inconvenience caused though this anomaly and we sincerely do apologise.
We do look forward to hearing from you in due course and ask that you email us at [email protected] and quote your order reference number in the subject line so that we can quickly access your original order and all the details we will require to action one of the options provided above. You may also telephone our Customer Care team on the number below, should you prefer to speak to one of our team.
Kind regards
Customer Care Team
Maplin Electronics "

UPDATE
I received my drive today, great service Thanks Maplins.

for info , I actually split open the casing, removed the hard drive and installed it as an internal drive into my PC, I've then fitted a smaller (250GB) hard drive into the storage drive casing - I just wanted to take advantage of the good price drive and I get a small but very useful external storage drive into the bargain :-))

as I paid by Paypal, Maplin's don't have the facility to take any further payment. Personally I don't think they were specifically trying to get people to cancel their order, I think the cancellation invitations were system generated because they were 'unable to fulfill the order' (ie the free gift)

later today I received another mail from Maplin, this time to advise that the discount voucher has been discontinued and that my order is now completed

ps - I realise that I've now invalidated my warranty on the item but think it's worth the gamble, Seagate are great reliable drives

Thanks
