HUKD 7th birthday Twitter Party - Thursday 15th September at 7pm

We are good to you, aren't we. I mean, ANOTHER competition? Even though it is our birthday, we are peppering you with gifts.

On Thursday 15th September we will be having a Twitter Party. However, I am afraid we wont be supply any alcohol or hiring Status Quo. Instead we will provide a couple hours of fun and some vouchers for our lucky winners.

Every 30 minutes starting at 7pm (through to 9pm) we will be posting a clue on Twitter that should lead you to a specific deal that has been posted on HUKD. That deal will then be your answer and to have that answer registered with us you should tweet as follows:

@hotukdeals "DEAL LINK" #hukdparty

(DONT FORGET TO REPLACE "DEAL LINK" WITH THE ACTUAL LINK OF THE DEAL. DONT JUST WRITE IT!!)

It is incredibly important that your tweet is as shown above - answers cannot register with us if they do not comply.

For each round we will be offering 3 x £10 Amazon vouchers to correct entrants chosen at random and the last round at 9pm will see an additional £30 voucher given to one lucky winner.

So, put on your best party frock and make sure you are following us on Twitter. See you on the dance floor.

So altogether there are 4 vouchers being given away (totaling £60)? Why not give away more vouchers of a lower value? Just a thought.

This competition is discriminatory to people, like myself, who don't have Twitter and is therefore infringing my human rights...

I will, thus, be seeking compensation (not in Amazon vouchers) for hurt feelings and distress...

Btw, happy birthday.

No - there are 3 vouchers per round and 5 rounds. Therefore 15 £10 vouchers and one £30 voucher.

Unless your doing this competition via DM's then there is a big flaw in it...

As this is twitter only, what are HUKD doing to prevent stalkers who've moved over to said 140 character platform?

I appreciate that but it is a bit of fun. However, obviously you need the correct deal in order to be entered so if you copy you could be copying an incorrect answer regardless of how many people think it is correct.

Really? I bet that never crossed their minds.

What next? A dedicated trading forum? A facebook page? Sister sites? More presence in Google results... & possibly movement on the HotUKDeals search engine facility.

its called care in the community .. as in they don`t care and we live in the community ;)

Twitter is free to sign up with, you can sign up with a disposable email address like 10 minute mail and don't have to use your real name or any other id linking to you - So I don't see what the moaning is all about.

Even if you don't want to USE the service in its traditional manner, it could be useful to have an account in case you want to use it.

not moaning, but I don't fully understand how it works, perhaps its just me, lol. I tried it with the other Twitter comp they ran, but I was sure my twitters were just dissapering into cyber space !

That's beside the point. Why do we HAVE to join Twitter to partake in this competition? Sure I CAN, but why?! If this was a industrial tribunal and a worker had been sacked from Hooters for having brown hair and they wanted blondes only, that's discrimination. Sure she can dye her hair blonde but why does she have to? Therefore I will excise my right to sue, so wait to hear from my lawyers...

P.S. Only messin with ya... I do actually have Twitter but I don't like £10 Amazon vouchers...

P.P.S. Twitter is over rated and I like arguing anyway...

No - you have to "tweet" the answer (as above) and the hashtag will alert us of your answer.

"Follow us" so you can see our tweets, then when you know the answer just type in "@HUKD followed by the deal link and finish it off with a tag. An example...

@hotukdeals http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ring-mp-75-mininverter-car-power-adapter-was-30-now-3-50-tesco-instore/1014174 #hukdparty

If that exceeds the character limit for a tweet then shorten the deal link using this site.
