First deal - after picking up many bargains thought it was time for some payback.

2 collections of Stephen King books - £7 and £8.

I previously picked up a collection for a tenner, but these only appear as 'deals of the week' if you do a search for 'Stephen King'. Furthermore, there's no books listed!!

Their customer services are useless - the email address bounced because the inbox was full, but after talking to their customer services I was told(?) that the two deals consisted of the following:

Stephen King Collection 1 - Deal of the Week
Code: 250035

Just after sunset
Bag of Bones
Cell
Christine
Firestarter
Dreamcatcher
Dolores Claiborne
Desperation
Cujo

Stephen King Collection 2 - Deal of the Week
Code: 250036

Hearts in Atlantis
It
Insomnia
Misery
Lissies Story
Under the dome
Full dark.
Carrie
The Shining


I've ordered Set 1. I'm dubious on the content, since set 2 contains his new 'full dark' book. Would have gone for (2) too, but have a few of them already

Am very tempted to get both sets!!
#2
I've got the good ones in both sets :(, but good price & good find
#3
I've already got almost all his books and my dad has the others. there is no way full dark no stars would be part of these collections... but then again ;) anywayz hot deal thanks :)
#4
Amazing price avid fan, ordered and heat added
#5
Ordered both, heat added, thanks...
#6
avid fan has told you which books are in the collection......
#7
Heh, yeah, just saw his... "dubious" information. I might take a chance on set 2 because of Full Dark No Stars being in there, plus a couple of others I don't have.
#8
Hey, I give no guarantees as to the content of each set! – the Indian guy who was manning their customer services had enough trouble just pronouncing the titles and it took him a while to locate them anyway.oO

However, at £7/£8, I figured it was worth a punt!8)
#9
I have also rung them up and they confirmed that the 2nd collection does contain Stephen Kings latest book which if its correct makes this a massive bargain as its £7.49 with Amazon and £9.99 at WH Smiths. So I have ordered and fingers crossed :)
#10
Sorry forgot to add a big thank you to avid fan :)
#11
Thanks avid fan this has literally made my christmas - as a new reader too Stephen King this is the bargain of the year and if the photos are anything to go by they are in Hardback as well - they are literally giving them away
#12
Cracking deal, one criticism



You forgot Quidco 8%:(


voted hot anyway :p
#13
Order shown as complete now:) - and I ended up going for both sets.

Furthermore, they've updated the listings to give the full list of books - and they are as detailed on the phone (with his new one in the second set), so touch-wood looks like a major bargain.

Bizarre costs - for 50p more, you could get Under the Dome on its own (shame I already bought it in Tescos)
#14
just out of interest, how many of these books were in the set that was posted on here a while ago?

I got a previous set for about a tenner from a previously posted deatil - had about 10 books in it, but all were different to the two sets posted here. The previous set is probably still available, but is up to £30

Hardbacks or paperbacks? I'd prefer paperbacks as they're easier to carry...
#20
hardback - but they're the same size as the paperback version
#21
Brilliant deal. Sorts out the christmas present for my dad who is a Stephen King fan. Pretty sure he has a small few of the books, but the ones he has i'll keep for myself.

Also, I ordered both and only got charged for 1 set - not sure if this is intentional or a bug:

250035 Stephen
Stephen King Collection 1 - Deal of the Week 1 £8.00
250036 Stephen
Stephen King Collection 2 - Deal of the Week 1 £0.00

Delivery Charge £0.00
VAT (£0.00)
Total £8.00

I tried to order too, but the second set comes up as £0.00. Hope it works.
#23
tried to order but comes to £0.00, so in other words out of stock
#24
Set 2 is unavailable by the looks of it. Set 1 though - seems to have gone through.
#25
Just ordered both sets...I'm a sucker for 'The King' BARGAIN!
banned#26
Can't order them, looks like OOS for collection 2

#27
Another oos for set number 2

Voted hot. ;)
#28
Almost worth buying the second set to get the new book and flogging all the rest on fleabay! (I have all the others already.) Top find Avid Fan - well done for a great first post. (_;)

(Don't let the miserable beggars who always want to pick fault put you off posting again!)
#29
Great deal, which would be better for my mom who loves thrillers? 1 or 2? x
#30
Just paid and they have nilled the collection 2, does that mean it is out of stock?

Yes, its letting you add it but when your payment is processed its not charging you and showing as 'no longer available' in small text on the page directly after your payments processed, but confusingly nowhere else.

Seems they are both out of stock?

Stupid that you have to go through the payment process to find out that they are OOS, and it even still confirms the order...

Shame, would have loved to have got this collection! Nice if they turn up and I got them for free, however! lol

Edit: Zero, it didn't say they were no longer available for me anywhere... Strange.

Do you guys think they'll get these back in stock?

My order history


21/11/2010 In Stock, Awaiting Picking, Item No Longer Available


I'm guessing 'awaiting pickup' is the collection 1 and 'Item No Longer Available' is collection 2.

:(

Annoying. I was looking forward to reading them.

Just ordered the 2nd set myself. Very peeved because at no point before ordering did it say the item was no longer available.
#37
My girlfriend is gonna love me -Thanks.

Will they come back in stock at all? Or if the offer has run out of stock is that it?

They might. I've ordered quite a few times from these and I've just had to wait a while if it was out of stock in the past. You're only charged on dispatch so don't worry about paying for them and not receiving anything.
#40
Will I need to place a new order or will they just send them when they get the stock?

The didn't charge me anything but I got an email confirming the order. Pretty confusing really :/
