Good price. Bought one from Sainsbury's for £241 this morning using a combination of employee discount schemes, however I shopped around a lot first and this is very cheap! Nice find.

By Shopto providing HUKD with this list as per the pic, does this not fall under self promotion? Funny how HUKD seems to pick and choose which retailers self promote when it suits them.

Got to agree. This should not be allowed. and as per their own rules HUKD should ban Shopto deals for self promotion.

Er the point is they have double standards, other sites have been banned permanently from having deals listed, yet Shopto are apparently fine and posted by the mods themselves. Not right at all. either allow self promotion or do not, do not allow it for some and not others.

If you do not understand a conversation do not join it please.

Exactly the point....the deal may be hot but it doesn't allow HUKD to have double standards. Either allow all companies to self promote or allow non at all. It seems HUKD are gaining some kind of benefit from Shopto whether monetary or not, regardless this goes against the site own ethos.

Perhaps it depends on the channels/methods used? If ShopTo sent the list to a mod at HUKD or contacted some other way, then they distribute the list - that's OK, since they've cleared it with the site first.

If however, ShopTo created a user account pretending to be Joe Public and posted the deal, then that would be more underhand self promotion.

Just a thought.

Heads up i posted a thread in "MISC" to discuss, however MODS have moved it to "Feedback" i guess the cynic in me believes so that the post does not get as much attention, but here is the link below.

Will you moan if Amazon pricematch it though ?

Also, who's to say where the list came from..... you're jumping to conclusions....

Who cares if they are self promoting, or if they sent a list to mods and they posted it on this site. Life is too short to get your knickers in a twist over it.

How is having a view moaning? Anyway its about having consistency which if self promotion is allowed would allow many retailers to return to be posted on this site?

Seems quite a coincident that HUKD seem to get so many price lists before the deals are available. If someone from SHOP-TO did not provide it then who did. lol

I think it's great if they get the prices before the deals go live.....it causes a bit of competition and other retailers try and better the deals.....we're the winners.

I dont see a problem here.

Will they do anything about equality? no, why? because they're probably making a fortune out of these types of deals that suit them. each person that clicks that link and purchases something is probably giving them a tasty %.

I don't either as long as its a level playing field and all retailers are able to promote their business this way....competition is good. But don't think the HUKD should be impartial and not pick and choose which retailers to post deals for.

It's an easy work-around though isnt it.....

Just employ one of your staff to post up good deals on a well known deals site......look at some of the more prolific deal posters on here and tell me they arent getting backhanders X)

Do not see one person complaining about getting prices early, the problem is self promotion is against the rules and other sites have been banned from HUKD because of it. So if its OK to post this then they need to go back unban all those other sites and remove that rule , the double standards are ridiculous should not be picking and choosing who has to follow the rules and who does not.

TBH, I'm not sure I've seen any retailers get banned.....except Amazon who are so big that it would be stupid to enforce the ban as (approximately) 30% of all deals come from them anyway !

The price reduction that's currently in effect was advertised as being temporary right from the start.

Come on now guys you (we) are now clogging up a perfectly good deal with pointless crap, It's a deal on a deals website, take it as it is, the info has to come from somewhere.

The price reduction that's currently in effect was advertised as being temporary right from the start.


Well, in a deflationary global economy where companies are desperate to sell electronics, clothing, etc, etc, as wages stagnate it will be interesting to see just how long Microsoft can keep their price increases.

You only have to look at all the deals on here to gauge just how desperate manufacturers and retailers have been to get sales this Christmas - so many firms starting sales before Christmas being a good sign of firms panicking and realising that there is a limited supply of buyers out there.

There have been plenty of console related deals over the past 2 months at least, now gimme some cheap/significantly discounted GAMES to buy on said console. Or, y'know, just a game good enough to justify paying full price for. I wish I'd have waited a year on picking one up tbh, there's really nothing to shout about and I'd be just as happy on my 360.

Someone once said in a different post
"This place is starting to look like its run by North korea"
I think the're right ! I'm sure I'll get suspended / banned and post removed for that comment but as I said before I don't need a user account to browse deals here and badges mean nothing to me so I couldn't care!
