After ordering at about 900am there was still plenty left whilst browsing right up until the site crash, I guess it depends what you are after, but seemed plenty of deals still.

It was on from about 6 am I believe, there was a now deleted post on here, site melt down from about 10am, with people having problems from about 9:30 onwards at checkout (I had no problems personally)

i must have been lucky i managed to order three different times saved a fortune and got really expensive gifts
#16
I got lucky too, in the sense I ordered valentines gifts first time round last week, although I stayed awake for the site to start selling and got my orders through really early.

Then this time round was incredibly lucky to log on at just after 8am browse through all gifts and push an order through before 9am (lets hope they dont cancel orders like they did with some last week)

Seriously though, the Boots Tech team want shooting, they should have known the traffic issues from last time and fixed it.
#17
Thank goodness my friend rang me at 7.20am telling me the 75% sale had started so quickly put some items in that I had been looking for and managed to order. Trying to go back online now to see if there's anything else interesting at a bargain price but like you, get the holding page so glad I manged to get an order put through earlier.

Boots are a nightmare, after all this delay you'd think that they'd be prepared for an almighty rush, they never learn!!
#18
i think is back on now just managed to login and add something to my basket
#19
It's working now but most of the nice stuff has gone. I put a couple of alcohol miniature sets in my basket and they were out of stock by the time I went to check out. Can't be faffed with it tbh, giving up!
#20
trying to get to checkout and am getting some weird error message! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
#21
Finally managed to place an order, wouldn't go through to check out previously, so I registered again with hubby's email address and it worked fine!!
Ordered:

Rainbow Swing It was £29.36 now £7.34

Boots multi bright reindeercards was £3.43 now £0.86

Bob The Builder Sunflower Valley Playset was £48.94 now £12.23

FCUK Grooming Urban Premium Gift Set was £48.94 now £12.24 (hubby sorted for valentines!)

Front Cover Rainbow Eyes was £29.36 now £7.34

Just have to wait and see if they actually arrive - has anyone had bits cancelled AFTER their order went through??????????

Managed to get to to £40.01 so got free delivery!

What a **** site though - BOOTS we are your friends we want to buy from you, please let us!!!!!! Why do they include all the out of stock bits when you search?? Not fair!!!

Dear colin,
As part of our internal procedures to protect our customers we undertake a series of order checks. Having carried out these checks we are regret we are unable to proceed any further with the order detailed below.


I rang them and they said it was a web error but i was welcome to re-order - of course 99% is now out of stock
#26
Oh dear - will keep a check on my emails then. Have to admit if they cancelled the No7 kit I wouldn't mind too much - it was an impulse buy and I don't really need it!!! Oh the guilt!!!!!!

I got the no 7 kit for my wifes valentines day last week when I was one of the lucky ones placing an order, ordered another 2 today for gifts....fantastic value for money.

Crikey, website back down, was hoping to put another order in on little gifts for a few raffle prizes for the local cat protection league.

I've just managed to place an order online with a little help from a very nice man at Cust serv. Went online as a guest, didn't,log in and allowed me to process my order using paypal - got about £211 worth of stuff for £56 - bloody bargain!!! x x x x

That is a real pain, I am hoping everything is going through with my order ok, i processed it through paypal but it failed Boots authorisation, so then I paid via visa, its processing via visa, however logging into my paypal account is an authorisation for Boots to take payment!....dont want to call boots as they will no doubt cock things up. Will just wait, most likely the paypal authorisation will go unclaimed and will expire after 30 days.
#32
My paypal says 'pending'!!!!!!!!!!!
#33
I cant even get on the flipping website.

If you log into your paypal account it should say pending, they will only process the authorised payment when they despatch the goods it will be sat there until they do.

It was different in my instance that I had offered to pay by paypal, boots system declined authorisation, but it has still gone through paypal channels and sat there pending, I then paid Boots by visa for my order and thats what is shown on my order page..so I am hoping that the pending paypal status is just left else I will be charged twice and have to take it up with Boots.
