12 Days of Christmas - HOTUKDEALS Competition - 2007

This is an extension of the thread I posted to the main deals section..sorry for confusion :)

Hi guys,

It doesnt look like HOTUKDEALS is running the 12 Days of Christmas competition that it did last year....for people who remember it.

Well ok then - here's the deal

If HOTUKDEALS isnt running a 12 days of Christmas this year then I'm happy to start one myself..unfortunately no amazon vouchers up for grabs - but would be fun to do a little searching nonetheless.

What do people think about the following:

For each of the twelve days, HOTUKDEALS members must find the CHEAPEST GENUINE ONLINE price for a given item and post it into the given thread for that day. Your price MUST include:

1) Description of the item with title
2) Where you've seen it (HAS TO BE ONLINE!)
3) Final price as it would leave your bank account!
4) Any mention of QUIDCO, IPOINTS, MUTUALPOINTS or other cash/points back schemes off the back of the deal. Just a word on this - in the event of a tie and ONLY in the event of a tie, QUIDCO and/or others will be taken into consideration.

Each search day will run from 9AM UNTIL 7.30PM and results will feature at the end of that day - the winner announced then. zarguio (i.e. me, and anyone else appointed in case I get really busy! ) has the final say over the winner for each day. We'd be starting on the 12th and running until the 23rd.

Items to be searched for each day will be broad rather than specific - giving you more scope to argue your case. Posters who remember last year's competition will know what I mean

Finally, again - I'm really sorry, but there's no prize for each day as I'm poor - unless ADMIN wish to add some vouchers here?!?!?, so its just for the love of searching. If anyone wishes to contribute a prize then that would be great. I believe a chappie offered some webserver space just before the thread was pulled - or was I imagining things? Get in touch if you have something to give back to the board :):)

Right folks - this is going ahead (if you're happy!) starting with the FIRST DAY'S DEAL - THIS WEDNESDAY - 12th December.

Does anyone have any questions, or wish to clarify anything? :)

I'm not sure we can get the exposure into Misc that we need. Hehe. People would only stumble across this thread by accident is my concern. I reckon it would rely on loads of people taking part....

...if there's a way we can build up interest then that would be great :)

well as long as someone keeps posting in here, it will keep it near the top of Misc.

Don't worry zarguio. we'll manage somehow!!

Fair enough.

I think we'll draw a close to that idea then.

...unless you think differently...?
#13
LOL..ok - hint taken :(

Idea done....

noooooo - it sounds like fun. how about when we start the game, the best deal each round gets posted in the hot deals main page, and at the bottom we advertise the fact that its part of this christmas game, thus leading more people to this thread (via a link). Surely then it will attract more players as the game goes on...

now THAT is a fantastic idea...I love it!!!! Very good indeed.

Right - its back on....depends how many people come in and see, obviously. But I'll post the first day's QUEST on the MISC. forum by 9.30 tomorrow morning.

Good luck!!
