is it to do with the Newcastle MP3 player thingy?


I can understand why Admin aint allowing em on for time being now:p
#10
some people no laik ... competition?
#11
Is probably due to self promotion, i've seen someone from Boffer posting on here before, he was actually answering questions on a big pockets deal
[helper]#12
Might be because the deals don't last very long - by the time they are posted here they are probably nearly finished....

BTW I think ibood are allowed now.....

Yeah would be nice to be kept in the loop, I can confirm i have received three FREE gifts from them and just ordered the 160GB media centre :( Bad call?...
#15
I just think that there may be some funny business with the method of how the deals are getting on HUKD.

Always make purchases with a credit card to keep yourself relatively safe. That goes for any retailer, good or bad.

Yeah totally agreed, Seems to have a big enough fan base on its forums to warrant they still operate legit (lets hope so) and just a issue with posting

I think their freebies are a con, i.e. they oversell and then claim that all the extras were "lost in the post"

I never got the one and only freebie thing I ordered from them. Then again I cant say I was too boffered.:w00t:

Never quite understood the hoo haw with them, though I suppose a few did get some good deals.
#19
ive got free hoto paper from them a free geyser tube (mentos experiment) and got both of them i dnt see whats wrong with them
#20
this is ridiculous!!
#21
Damn, you mods are fast. I posted a heads up in misc for the latest offer - jb removed it and slapped my wrist in under 2 mins :oops:

I never got my BBQ mealworms! :( But was offered free delivery with my next purchase! :)
#25
they werent anything to show off. they tasted like eating saw dust :whistling:
#26
I dont understand why we cant post boffers, its a good website.
#27
Be nice to finally find out whats going on, We of the old cheap D.I.Y style PVRs went on today 160GB Twin Tuner @ 24.99... Just expect the sound loss, and occasional reboot needed but for £25 still not sure you can argue if it works
#28
I've had a few things from boffer, free and purchased and never had a problem with them. they have also always answered any query's very quickly.
It would be nice if a mod or admin could expand upon the sittuation a little so that we know whats going on.
[mod]#29
Sod it. Just have Boffer open all the time and hit F5. Just a shame that I/we can't post anything that I/we don't want but someone else might.
Would be nice to know what admin at HUKD are really up to with boffer instead of all this cloak and dagger stuff. Bah humbug!!
banned#30
The mods/admin won't tell you anything about this, they would rather people just wasted their time posting deals to get removed without any explanation why.
Why they can't just say 'no xxx deals until further notice' is beyond me
#31
Well I am still oredering from them and waiting for the BOC's tomorrow...hopefully get a 26" tv!
[mod]#32
Still no answer on here then. I'm just going to email bigpockets/boffer with the link here and see if they can shed any light on why it's being implied they are dodgy. I've not had any problems with them so far.

I dont think they know why, one of the boffer staff/mods (Stephen), posted this last night when asked about it:

''nikkiandmidgets wrote:
So does anyone know why all the boffers are getting pulled from hotukdeals...people have been asking but seem to be getting ignored?! Is there some sort of feud going on?!''

Beats me

I only found boffer a couple of weeks ago and have boffered on 3 things.. 2 have arrived already and the last was only yesterday..

The negative killing of boffer posts here was mentioned on the boffer forums.. which is actually why i came here to see what it was all about and this site is also fantastic!

Maybe its a marketing technique to get all the bofferers over to HUKD to see whats going on! Certainly worked on me!

(and no before you ask im nothign to do with boffer.. I just like cheap stuff!!)
#35
Could Admin please tell us what the problem is...

If it is to with the legitimacy of the site or problems with receiving orders, surely we are entitled to know!

If it is a problem you guys have with Boffer regarding referrals etc. then that is your problem and not a reason to ban them (temporarily or not) from this site.

Boffer don't seem to know what the problem is...

A little light shed on the matter would be nice.

I must say, I am rather intrigued by this seemingly random ban....


looking forward to hearing what the crack is

Are all links from this site referred for cash then? I thought it was just posted by users?

Blimey....I'm surprised at this statement....is that perhaps why Quidco won't pay out when the "referral" has come from somewhere else....

but did I not read a while ago that Quidco and HDUK are related...

anyway...I ordered the MP3 player before the boffer post got deleted.....hopefully it will do well on Ebay when Shearer eventually becomes manager at the Toon....;-)
