i booked a holiday for last week to take the kids to haven for a week but due to us not having the rest of money to pay for holiday and because my 3 year old was ill with chickenpox we had to cancel :(
anyway just had an email through of the freecycle offering a weeks haven holiday FOR FREE
they are offering the holiday FOP names out of a hat and letting people know at 21.30
keep your fingers crossed for us please x x

i hate freecycle now, i put some stuff on recently, ideal for ebay, some videos inc disney, xbox games, gamecube etc, clothes, barbie stuff, worth a bit if you could be bothered, but the replies wanted it disgusted me, had loads but not ONE was polite about it, one even just said 'i'll have it, when can i collect' pmsl
#15
yeah i know some people are soooo rude
i give loads away on freecycle but i have also had loads of there.
i prefer to give to people that i know also give away on the freecycle rather than just take all the time

Word of warning - I won a free holiday with Haven last year and I think it would of been cheaper to book and pay for a holiday properly, by the time we paid the extra charges (which they only tell you about when you confirm booking) it cost a fortune! (had to pay linen charges, car parking charges, evening entertainment club charges, daily sports/club/entertainment charges for the kids etc, etc) Just make sure you read the small print if you win.....Good luck!
#17
thanks everyone,will let u know later
thats if they let people know individually which i doubt,
anyway i just hope it goes to someone who appreciates it

its not a holiday they have they paid £460 for the break but for some reason cant go now so they are giving it away maybe due to it being short notice i pressume,they said everythng was paid for
this was the email

offered 3 bed holiday to great yarmouth haven site for 7 days all paid
cost £460 cant go so this friday anyone wanting a break its ideal and
free


its a 5 hr drive for us but it would be worth it,never been to norfolk :)

Good luck janet :-)

Freecycle is great!!! (I am biased though as I'm a moderator on our local one).

There are some really lovely people on there, ive offered stuff though and get some replies saying simply yes please or I want it, no manners means instant deletion if I am offering pure and simple, speaking of which i'm sticking a lexmark x8350 on there later perfect working order, just cant be bothered replacing the black ink.

Log into your account you have paired with freecycle and you can select if/when to receive your notifications, theres no reason to not allow membership in the first instance, only if you have been banned for spamming,

There are three options for notifications: Individual alerts ( you get an email alert as each item is posted), daily digest (one email per day containing all the posts, if you are wanting stuff its harder to become a recpient as most items are offered to the first polite reply) or no notifications where you need to check your groups page for updated posts.
#26
i think alot of people tend to give away to te 1st person that replies so those who dont answer till late or the next day the item has been more than likely given away
some do fair offer policy though and put names in a hat
most times the people get loads of replies so rather than let each individual know they will post on the freecycle that the item has been collected
do u get the emails?

harlzter beat me to it:)
i too just delete the rude emails and those that just say i will have it,manners cost nothin!

Ive offered stuff before and had over a hundred replies on one item (a netgear wireless router), its simply too time confusing to reply to each individual email, so I always place a taken on afterwards.

What annoyed me is on the flea market theres a guy has a lot of furniture and last week a table and chair set (very nice too) rang a bell in my head as it had a distinctive mark on it (nothing major but distinctive none the less) I double checked the photo that the person who had offered it on freecycle had placed and also specificaly said no traders and sure enough it was the same one!!!
Double checked other posts and a settee matched too, so I contacted the people who had offered them to and it was the same guy who i've now banned :-) I'll be checking tomorrow see if he has rejoined by what he is selling.

grrrrr i really hate the people that just take to sell on its just greed,i like giving things away to people who need or will use them but i think people who take to sell on just ruin it for others.
i do not reply to anything unless i genuinly need it.i hate it when people reply they say they want it but never turn up and dont reply to emails
i dont get it :x

Good luck. :thumbsup:

yes i did,
but maybe there are people who deserve a holiday more
to be fair we have been away twice this year,just 4 days roughing it at pontins for £60 but at least we have had a holiday this year.
i presume someone else has got the holiday as she said she would be picking someone at half 9 and i havent heard anything yet
oh well never mind thanks for the good lucks anyway :cry:
