With a new look I though Id bring you a new newsletter or, if newsletter sound a little boring, Weekly Goings On here on the forum. Ive put this together all on my own this week, and only had the idea last night, and so accept my apologies if Ive missed anything big out or if its not very good. What would help, is if you see an exceptionally good article then please PM me letting me know that you think it should be in the newsletter. All ideas must be to me by 6:00pm each Friday evening (unless I tell you otherwise). Now then, lets get started!!
Note: on most of the posts talked about you can click on a link to visit the page in question.
Earlier this week we all had three attempts at typing in the HUKD address before wed realised that wed done it right. Admin totally took us by surprise because wed had no prior warning to any changes on the site. I have said lots of times that I preferred the purple and orange, but things do, unfortunately, have to change. Im starting to get used to the new style myself, and Im sure that other people really like it too.
The best new feature in my opinion is the Quick Reply feature, which saves you the click of a button, which to me often put me off replying to posts when I wasnt too bothered. I also think that the spot lights are good, and the images on the front page help you see the offers quickly without having to read a lot.
There have been several problems, but most of these have now been sorted by Admin.
But is it just me, or are the popular deals and latest vouchers areas making the actual posts very long and narrow?? Then again, I dont use maximised windows most of the time.http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7654.phtml
>>New Look Article Here<<
At the beginning of the week we saw the launch of http://www.quidco.com
QuidCo , the internets http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7621.phtml
FIRST ever cashback cooperative !! This has really helped reduce the price of our HotDeals even further, and it really save you money. Im sure that it will become a very popular website.
Mobile Phone Deals
Im going to use my favouritism now (Its my newsletter anyway!!). Im posting mobile deals early in the newsletter because I have recently been given the job of looking after these deals. Im keeping a sharp eye out for these, and only posting the best. Admin did actually beat me to the two best offers this week though. Admin noticed (a couple f hours before I was about to post them) the http://www.hotukdeals.com/Article1160.phtml
Motorola V220 with 100 free minutes and 100 free texts with a total 12month term cost of £0.00!! Actually, if you used QuidCo then you would have made a profit of £30!! Admin pointed out that the http://www.hotukdeals.com/Article1158.phtml
Nokia 3120 also has a free contract term if you use QuidCo with that too. For those of you with too much money I found the http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7639.phtml
Blackberry PDA phone, and I also found the best deal for a http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7536.phtml
Samsung D500 .
The Motorola V220 brings me nicely onto this. QuidCo isnt just saving us money; its a source of income!! LOL. Theres £30 profit on the V220, and theres more profit with a http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7665.phtml
Better than Free ink cartridge , as posted by Paul. I reckon that I started the trend off though, with my http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7625.phtml
1p profit on a .co.uk domain name at 1&1 . Also, in the 1&1 penny profit post we learnt about Uiamans better-than-free cookies.
The Bank Holiday Ad Scans proved useful once again, I think thats a very nice idea Admin, but it must take ages to scan them all!! I like how my usernames been plastered across the mobile ones too, LOL. http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7611.phtml

The newest is probably the best http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7719.phtml
iPod mini offer available. Its only green though. Oh well, view it here.http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7717.phtml
TGI Fridays are doing some of their cheap meals again. If youre in that area then try this for a treat.
SVP announced their http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7695.phtml
Best Ever Shipping Offer just 24 hours after I ordered a load of discs. Sods law is true. Ive not had a single suggestion for this but I bet I get one as soon as I post one. Also, try SVPs extremely cheap discs at just £9.99 per 100. I dont think that this was ever posted on HUKD. The discs have students drawings all over them, but I recon that these will cover up with some white labels, LOL. Also, check out http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7698.phtml
SVPs TFT monitor which is also quite cheap.
Theres been a bit of a battle for TFT monitors this week. Not only is there the SVP one http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7698.phtml
, but also a http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t6845.phtml
15 for £82 and a http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t4897.phtml
17 for £129 .
MissPiggy has been keeping up with most of these, with the regular (and not so regular) help of all those whove contributed over the past week.
MissPiggys pride and joy seems to be the http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7229.phtml
freebies in the Magazine / Newspaper thread which she maintains regularly. Ive got my Star Wars stickers, but I didnt really want a Cottage Garden DVD, LOL.
The Doctor Who eBooks look good too. This is a little biased because Im quite a Doctor Who fan (Saturdays, 7pm everyone!!). http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7619.phtml

Ben and Jerry free cone day looks good, but I cant get to a Ben & Jerry's that day!! The post is a little feeble by the way JulianL, please put more information next time. The free cone day itself does look pretty cool (do you get it?? Cool). You basically get a free ice cream, 19th May I think.
I think that MissPiggy found a little gem with the http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7708.phtml
FREE Boots cosmetics bag . This is available from 19th May, so get it after your free ice creams, LOL. I reckjon these will disappear very quickly, grab them whilst you can!!
Ive not been keeping an eye on this forum over the last few days, because I dont believe that it is of any use. . ONLY JOKING!! I know that LoneCrusader will give me some stick for that because he does a lot of hard work there. Keep it up, and I promise to include some competitions in the next newsletter.
Miscellaneous (Funny, fun and random)
This forum has been bustling with life once again.
Weve seen http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7605.phtml
Guess-the-Google this week too. After playing this for 2 consecutive hours I was told by my friends to Get a life.
My friends did like the http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7649.phtml
BlockedMe song which everyone is now singing!! Thanks guys.
We all had a moan at http://www.hotukdeals.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t7678.phtml
TrekBabes joke , which I personally think is so bad it should be removed from the forum. I must add that you do a good job contributing to this UK site seen as you are in America Trekbabe (I think you are anyway)!!
PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. PM ME TO TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK COULD BE MADE BETTER, WHAT YOU LIKED, OR WHAT TOPICS YOUD WANT ME TO FOUCUS ON NEXT TIME.
Hopefully therell be more freebies / deals next month, because Ill be able to index my favourites during the week. I'll put some comps in too.
I hope to make this a regular, useful resource, and so PM me with any posts which youd like to be mentioned. Well hopefully end up with a nice little archive of goings-on!!
If youve read this far you must either be very sad or be looking for something which Ive made a mistake on. If either of the two options are correct then I advise you to shut down your computer and go for a long walk. LOL. Now then, lets carry on DealHunting!!
