#4
What happened to the other post the same? It seemed to have a referral link in it...
#5
looks like it might be out of stock now. I've just had an email off them which seems to imply that:

Thank you for shopping at Comet Direct.

We are sorry, but one or all of the products you have selected has become temporarily out of stock in your area. A Specialist will contact you by telephone within 24 hours to discuss either the date your product is due into our warehouse, or offer you an alternative product.

Please note that due to this processing delay we may not be able to offer you the delivery time and date you originally selected.
#6
just mods clearing up dup postings. There was no referral besides the standard HDUK one. ( they get a slight kickback from some people )
[mod]#7
Datamile's post was fine, its just that two posts had been made (within 1 min of each other) so the one that was posted first was kept :)
#8
this is also available in Tesco`s if Comet run out.

Tesco is still £40 online. Some Comet stores still have stock. Their customer service was very helpful. tel no. 08705 425 425 and press 1 to talk to an advisor. Great price to put away for next xmas. I was gutted to have missed out on the M&S one at this price so thank you for a great find.

Remember people to thank OP by clicking his Rep button

The Wow Wee takes 7 'AA' batteries, I think the link to the Argos Robo is the bigger version??
From the searches I have done it is still around the £70-£80 mark so a fantastic deal, voted hot and adding to rep.

Just picked up mine and it does take 9 AA batteries - but nearly didn't get it at all!!

Did my 'click and collect' reservation - waited an hour - no phone call to say out of stock - so travelled to the store and was told on production of my confirmation print that they has none in stock!
Told the Cashier to get the manager and that i was having none of it - to which the cashier next to her said 'oh, but i thought there was 3 in stock'.
Manager came and said the 3 in stock were reserved for customers - which i advised yes, and i'm one of them - see my confirmation.
He then said 'no - they had already paid for theirs', to which my response was 'if they had paid for them, they wouldn't be showing as in stock'
The queue behind me had got quiet long by this point.
Anyhow, the mamanger said 'wait a minute' and came back with one, dumped at my feet and said the cashier that Gemma would have to go without!
So seems the staff had put them behind for themselves - with a big sod off to those customers that had reserved them!! Beware!

OH is well pleased with her present - although it takes some master trickery to unpackage it lol
#22
I'd reserved a couple of these at different stores and Comet have just phoned to say sorry they have no stock, even though I have reservation numbers :x
#23
Very nice find :) Thanks for this :pirate:
#24
Quick argument with Manager of one of the stores and out he pops with the goods, Comet staff just trying to nab the bargains for themselves, surprise surprise.
#25
my four year old said he wanted this so I reserved one online. just gone to the store with him and guess what, they didn't have any in store!!! my son was very upset as you can imagine. surely if comet can check the stock levels online then they can reserve them for you. beware, order by phone or you may find that they have sold it before you get there.

if you have reserved one online without paying for it, may be worthwhile phoning the store before you set off to make sure they have removed it from the shelf! good luck.
#26
Scummy comet just rejected and deleted my order for

roborep+weather+coin sorter

"Unfortunately we have not been able to process the order you have placed for the following reason:

The product you have selected is currently out of stock.

If you still wish to continue with your order, please call our direct sales team on the number below.

Due to our security procedures we will have deleted your original order details so our direct sales team will ask you for the full order details again.

Yours sincerely"

Obviously been taking lessons from PC World:viking:

After a conversation with the store manager, apparantly the call centre will not put you through to the store to verify stock levels. If their system shows 'low' stock levels - they will tell you it's out of stock!
If you want to get through to the store, you may to blag it - i.e 'I need to get an urgent to my relative who's working instore' and they should give you the direct number to dial.
#29

Thanks for the heads up on this, I have just been to collect mine from Comet in Harrogate in West Yorkshire. I live in Bradford West Yorkshire & all my local stores had sold out, so I had about a 35 minute drive, but it was worth it :thumbsup: When I got to the store at about 7.50pm they had quite a few reserved slips behind the counter & they were all for the Roboreptile:giggle:
#32
big thanks to op for post but huge thanks to kimbo as she is gonna try and get me one even if i dont get one .it just goes to show how kind the members are as she is willing to help me get one for my son .
#33
I'm so stupid, I looked at this earlier and two local stores had them, never reserved them though and now they're both out :(

Whats this about Tesco having them in?

Thanks
#34
may be worth phoning comet. after the one that I reserved wasn't in store at margate, I phoned comet and they phoned another branch (canterbury) that showed as out of stock on internet, but they did have one and I picked it up tonight. it's now sitting on the end of my four year old's bed waiting for him to wake up!! good luck. shelley

i reserved one earlier today for tomorrow

when i called tesco up, they said that they would be dropping down to just under £20 in their january sale, as its showing that price on their website, but when you add it to basket, its coming up as normal price.
http://direct.tesco.com/homepage/toysgames.aspx
http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.100-2477.aspx

but others have managed to get it from tesco's stores at the reduced price.

Comet have been right idiots have not honored the simple concept of collect at store.

I reserved mines at the Barking (mad?) store and then turned up to find that they do NOT have any stock in store, as their stock level is showing zero, i asked for if any others stores have got it, the next one Beckton (less than half mile away) has two, i ask if they can phone up and reserve it for me, they can't get thru to the store.

I turn up at the Beckton store, and guess what it is sold out.

I was told by the staff at Barking that apparently the collect at store option on the web only allows customers to reserve the item if the stock level for that particular store happens to be more than THREE. which meant sod all to me.

I couldn't even reserve the Weather station on the web for the 1.99 price as i can't find it on the web but the Comet at Beckton had wait for it........FORTY units of stock!

It seems Comet stores and Comet online are on different planets and their collect at store is in shambles, maybe they should learn a lesson or two from Currys and PC World.

....btw Currys have been pretty good this year, i now where to take my business now.

What a bloody day. Got to the comet store at about 12:30 today. Gave my reservation number to a woman who replied with "i dont think we have any in" Then she decided that "we only have 3 in that are reserved and your name isnt one of them" I then waited for about 15 mins whilst they where phoning around here there and everywhere when one of the guys decided that hed just give me one of the other reservations. Then he changed his mind, as he couldnt find my code on the system. He then claimed that they only hold stock for 24 hours before deleting a record. Which is funny, as despite me reserving at 2:30 yesterday(well within 24 hours) the website and my email state that it is reserved untill closing time on the friday.

Enterd into an argument with him with him point blank refusing to help me, so i told him i wasnt going anywhere untill i had a robo raptor in my hands. Asked if i could speak to his manager, to which he replied no. I then asked if i could phone head office, he refused to give me the number. At this point i lost it and started ranting and raving and swore. He threated to have me thrown out of the store and refused to speak to me.(this is a ply some stores have, get you so angry to a point where you cannot control your self and then claim that they do not have to deal with you because you are out of controll).

Anyway, I continued my argument untill he finally got me the store manager, who claimed that there was no record of me on the system, and again said that they are deleted after 24 hours. After telling him that it was 2:30 i orderd, he then said that it must have been for another store. It wasnt, as my email clearly states the warrington store.

He then got on the phone to his boss and came back with a "sorry, we dont have any in stock there is nothing i can do". I told him that i want him to get me a robo raptor some how as i am not leaving and dissapointing my kids. He then said "ill check if one of the people who wants it still does" (which leads me to belive that a member of staff there may have conviniently deleted my reservation and took it for themself). He then came back saying that they did still want it and i couldnt have one. I told him he would have to get me one somehow, even if it meant going to currys and buyibg one and selling it to me at 19.99(at this point i was like david banner from the hulk, 1 step away from going green and smasing a few plasmas). After more arguing and so on he eventually somhow walked out of the back with a roboraptor which my kids are now happily playing with.


I now remember why i dont shop at comet!

Have a rep! Well done for you sticking to your guns - your experience seemed indentical to the one i posted yesterday - totally agree with your perception that the staff had reseved them. God hope i don't have to reserve anything else from Comet.

Report the store to H.O.. It's one thing staff reserving stuff for themselves that is available but a totally different matter when they reserve something for their own use that ALREADY has been reserved by a customer. IMO that shows a company that is very lax.
