Current Winner: (tuckeral) £425.00 - 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2009 - SPREAD THE WORD - STARTING THIS SUNDAY 13TH DECEMBER - DAY ZERO CHALLENGE INSIDE!!!!!

Hi folks,

For a little while now here on HUKD, at around this time of the year, I've been running a mini competition called THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS. After a year's break, starting on Sunday 13th December, 12 DAYS is back and better than ever (well, just the same really - but it sounds better that way! :) ).

So whether you've been a part of this before, or whether this is your first time, give a whirl. Are you in?

What happens? Well, for each of TWELVE days you'll be asked to find the cheapest and/or the best deal online. Viewers in previous years will know that sometimes the hunt will be for something STRAIGHTFORWARD, like a specific DYSON cleaner, but other days it'll be for something a bit odd or weird, like the BEST PRESSIE FOR DAD for under a tenner. Each day is different!

Some general rules:

1. I'll pop up each day's competition as early in the day as I can, so you have as much time as you need to seek out the best online deal. You'll find it here on HUKD at MISC - and I'll TITLE it with something like '12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - DAY ONE' - so its a little easier to find. Entries can come in as late as 11.59pm that evening.

2. You can enter as many times as you want in a day. Its not like some of those comeptitions where you get just one shot and you're done. You can come back and try again if someone beats your entry. Just reply to the current thread with details of your find, the price, and a link. I'll INCLUDE the current winning price in the title of the thread so you know where we are with things.

3. Sometimes its about the price (so cheapest wins), and sometimes its about the originality of the thing. Either way, I have the final say (sorry :) ) in who the winner is, and will try to announce it in that day's thread as quickly as possible. Everything has to be obtainable from a UK-based online source, should be available and IN STOCK. Prices you give should be for INDIVIDUAL ITEMS, SHOULD INCLUDE VAT AND DELIVERY. EBAY items are EXCLUDED, and ITEMS SHOULD BE NEW, not SECOND HAND. DISCOUNT CODES can be used but should only be available to the GENERAL PUBLIC, but VOUCHERS can't. Items must be deliverable to a UK address (i.e. its not acceptable to pick them up from a local store etc). QUIDCO and other cashback services can't be included in the final price, as you won't get to see the saving for some time. Sorry :)

4. We're doing this for the fun of it, so regrettably there aren't any prizes. That's unless some nice soul comes up with the goods and wants to push out some freebies to winners. There are some nice people out there after all!

5. Note that I'm not liable if you accidentally end up buying an item online! You're responsible for your actions, so don't click that BUY button to check out the price of something unless you know you're not actually buying it :)

6. That's it. Have fun, be nice. Be original, and enjoy! See you first thing on Sunday 13th December for the first in the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS here on HUKD.

---------------------

*****************Just to get you started, here's a DAY ZERO CHALLENGE**************

Preparation for Christmas involves doing a number of things, but Christmas for a lot of people is about great TV programmes. So we need to have a great telly to watch them on.

Your challenge, today on DAY ZERO, is to find the CHEAPEST price for a 40inch Full HD LCD telly. Find it, post details of it, including price, and a link to where we might find it online.

This challenge finishes at 11.59pm on Saturday 12th December. CHEAPEST WINS!! Good luck

jpxdude that's a great price. However they don't offer delivery to an address in the UK - only collection from one of five points. So I can't allow it. Sorry :(

I'll put a little addendum about this in the above instructions. Thanks :)

Nice price, aaah but unfortunately its not Full HD, also your £8.58 clubcard points aren't available. And you can't use QUIDCO in this competition as you won't get the money back immediately. :)

Splat - you're quite right, I stand corrected. Although the title says HD READY it is in fact a FULL HD set. You're winning so far. Congrats!!

Yes, just tried this out, having thought it was FREE DELIVERY for items over £50 as stated on their site, but I'm getting a £5 additional postage on top. splatsplatsplat - want to look into it?

Delivery charge at Argos is £5.80, as opposed to a possible £5 charge with Tesco Direct so either way you'd still be in the lead splatsplatsplat. We can't bring in QUIDCO or clubcard, no. But let me know what postage is..
#34
yep, little bleeders are adding 5 squid at the end.

oh Tesco how cruel are thee.
