Instore today I spotted this Thomson 500GB freeview recorder, marked down to about £29.99. I thought it was pretty cheap for a model with a big drive capacity, says about 320 hours of programming. Online at the link it is still at £150 so it could be a nice deal. My daughter has one of these and it works well, much quieter than previous versions from Thomson.

receipt or picture please..........
#2
Sorry, no receipt as I did not buy one, but at that price I might nip and get it in the morning as a back up for the one she has. No pic either. If I get one, I will update.

This offer is bound to be store specific as many of these type of Tesco deals are.

I sometimes don't post deals I see because of comments like these, Yes some deals are store specific but if you don't know about them you will never get them anyway.

I agree with the sentiment of your post, but if the OP at least stated which store the item was found in, then a lot of the follow up questions would be pre-empted.

Some people (not saying this deal poster, just explaining) come on this site and lie for the same reasons that people put up fake pictures of models on their own Facebook profiles, or create computer viruses, or start chain letter emails, etc.

To wind people up, boost their own egos, cause havoc, gain online rep and cred, laugh at the people they send on wild goose chases and other selfish/crazy reasons.

The Layer Cake Blu-Ray at Matalan for less than a fiver is one that springs to mind. Matalan don't stock Blu-Rays.

no hdmi port? is this why they're selling them for peanuts?
#9
why is asking for a pic, or receipt a bad thing? i think its more than reasonable.... and in all likelihood its store specific, so unless you live near the store (which ever one it is) it wont be a of any use to you....

oh buy the way, my local Bugatti dealer is selling veyrons for £50 also... but i don't have a pic and wont tell you its location! :)

There are ways and means to ask. Your 2 posts pretty much accuse the OP of lying. Why do you need to see a receipt unless that is your true feelings? If you wanted to know what store, why didnt you just ask that?

How about "Sounds like a great deal. Probably store specific. Where did you get it from"?

Anyway, nice to see youve toned down your response from the one the mods just removed. Telling the poster in your reply to get a life and calling them a looser isn't doing you any favours - and they werent acting all "high and mighty" either.



Oh dear.


when i said "receipt or picture please.........." and please make reference to the "please" there, how does that imply i am saying the OP is lying? do explain the correlation you have created from that very simple comment..... you must be a labour voter, making something out of nothing!

And again, I have also asked for a store location aswell, without sounding condescending or high and mighty like you.

Well, at least I have toned mine down, now its your turn... but that may just be asking for way too much....
#15
this offer has to be store specific like most tesco offers :(

more than likely, with a few in stock... good luck to those who track one down in the unknown store....

I also saw this in the Tesco Bristol Hartcliff store a few months back but they only had display model in stock which they wouldn't sell. Have fun finding one!

If you don't see what you did (and the number of replies it caused to say the same thing), then there is no hope. By all means clarify why they need to post a receipt if it isnt to prove they aren't lying.

OP have 4 orange rep circles on me and thanks for posting. Your efforts are appreciated,


listen Tony, or is it Gordon?.... unless you can show me how my very simple comment amounted to lying, you just don't have any ground for such an accusation. And relying on other people to justify your comment, is a very weak and poor explanation.

I did not accuse the OP of lying, you implied I did, there is a clear and definite distinction which I don't think you will be able to comprehend!

Anyways, good luck in the general election! :thumbsup:

hopefully, you are not to take offense from a little bit of humor!

My first thought when I read the second post on here was 'now that is the reason I don't post things on here I see in town' I can't be arsed to prove myself to others just because they can't be bothered to either believe what I have said or to phone their local store to see if they have any.

I'm not going to stand in the middle of WH Smiths and take a photo of a pencil case with 15p off just so the likes of you don't have to put any effort in, would you like me to also get you one and deliver it to your door?
#21
also asking to see if a deal is real, doesn't automatically imply that the op is lying, you really need to understand the basics of good English...

I agree that you didn't accuse the op of lying and its always easier to clarify a deal when there is proof of them, its not hard to take a quick photo on your phone and upload it is it? If its too much trouble spending an extra 20 seconds doing that then don't bother posting....... Half a job!

Biggotting woman!!!
#25
I saw same priced deal in Hookwood (crawley) Tesco few months back and they were refurbished units.

Not sure if they have any now though (don't recall seeing any)
#26
Thanks OP - I'm after one of these
Will keep a look out for one instore later :thumbsup:

my point exactly.... takes a few seconds to take pic, and to upload it, must be too much effort for some... ah well.....
#28
in any case, no point arguing with those who jump to big conclusions, to anyone who tracks and buys one of these new at that price, good luck to ya! and if you can grab one for me, would be more than happy to cover postage etc... pm me....

If you don't like the post, ignore it, rather than waste everyone's time with pointless whinging.

and then asking for someone to buy it for you and send you one :w00t:

I have an old five year old Thompson DVB recorder - not much capacity but it has the best menu I have seen yet and it is faster than any other DVB box. So this is tempting - HDMI would seal the deal.

Well, the store I saw it was Duke's Green, near Bedfont in SW London. Sorry I did not take a pick of the yellow label, but I was just out shopping and spotted it and 'thought' it might be a good price. If I started taking pics of the labels my missus would think I was a nutter!

There were a couple on the shelf. Did not seem to indicate it was a refurb and there were 2 other types there, 1 a smaller HD for a higher price and 1 that did state it was refurb.

I can understand that maybe some people do put false deals on, although not sure what the point is, but I saw this with my own eyes. Can't offer more than that! :roll:

But why?

You seem to be a very unpleasant person who lives in a world where no one is to be trusted.

Which store? - fine. Receipt? - not necessary as OP has stated a price and demanding a receipt amounts to accusing them of lying.
#35
Cheers for the heads up OP. If I am passing past tesco I will take a look, they will sell incredibly quick at this price though. :thumbsup:

Morning all, just joined today and must confess I find the length and arguments in this thread a bit baffling! Surely it's down to common sense??

I think it's great someone has taken the time to alert others to this possibility of an offer. If they don't want to upload pictures of a receipt and the in-store display as it's too much of an intrusion on their personal time than that's fine as well surely?

Or there could be other reasons why they won't have a receipt like for example if they don't want to buy one but think it's a good deal worth sharing with others perhaps?

Agree it would be helpful to mention the store but then again if the store's not near you (I live in Scotland) then a picture of a receipt and the item aren't going to be of much use anyway. Also, nothing stopping anyone from picking up a phone and verifying the existence of a deal at a particular store - I've done that in the past .....

And no point saying it takes too much effort to do so if anyone intends to put forward a critical view that folk should be making the effort to upload a receipt and picture in the first place!
