with the amount of people with reservation codes that they obviously have no intention of using! Several of them in more than one place
I may be missing the point here but isnt it selfish to have all these reservation codes - I can understand it if you were genuinely going to purchase and then decide against it and offer it on here but people are obviously reserving lots thereby stopping other genuine shoppers from being able to purchase.
Please be considerate when making reservations. Those that are desperately trying to locate these are unable to buy because of your actions. Abuse of the system only means others suffer. Its a great system but only when used correctly. There are 10 on here in the first page and a half made within the last 12 hours

I agree, but the stock will be released again the following day if it hasn't been collected. Just have to keep checking every day.

Rep scoring :w00t:

Fair enough if you reserve one and then decide against getting it, but I have saw someone with about 4 reservations! Someone who is desperately after them for thier kids xmas could lose out

yip that was what I was thinking

Also why should a member on here be given priority over a family who isnt? There are so many people missing out on these

i would say so looking at the threads

"i got 2 hamstrers reserved in macchu picchu just thought id offer them to someone who lives in peru just case youve been trying to get them and ive reserved them instead"

im spamming them all other than the official thread now its ridicululous lol
#9
maybe people are checking regularly and when they spot them reserve them for others thinking they are helping??

I would rather see the good in people and that genuine folk might just want to help than think they are just trying to score brownie points.

Same folk could list them on ebay, even reservation codes sell, but would rather give them to others on here.

Just my thoughts thats all, it is xmas

reservation codes shouldnt be sold......remember last year with wii fits eventually they removed them all

plus the fact that if you send anything bought via email on ebay its against the terms and conditions and not elgible for protection unless its posted byt then the code would of expired

if someobody wants 1 bad enough they will get them they arent that hard to find ffs

I know and I agree i'm just saying though that it is happening and personally i would rather give reservation codes to family/friends/ or those on here, if i had any, which i dont. Was just my opinion.

just having a morning rant mate ......all good:)

point is whats the diffence in stopping a stranger you dont know getting them for them selves to give them to a stranger you dont know on here:?
#21
Out of interest I would like to know if the same people spamming those with reservations did the same to all those who got comet discount codes who listed them or give them away? I got a 10% off code from someone that i was grateful for. Some managed to get dozens of codes but not all for themselves.

Isn't it the same thing?

I don't think so. I think those spamming are just asking it to be kept in the 'Official Thread' where people are looking for them and pointing out stock so that they can save the board being clogged up. :)

In effect, yes it is. It's called being nice. Some people on here just don't seem to understand that concept. :)

Just saw your post. Yes, you've got a point there. Now if the spammer were to say why they were doing it, eg. what you've said above, then folks might not think of them as just being a miserable troublemaker. :thumbsup:

i really dont see the point in getting all those codes for comet either its supposed to be 1 per email address then when some tool starts saying hes got oiver a huindred and starts swapping them for other vouchers etc

its abusing the system and stopping people from getting them for them selves.......do you not thinik these companies cotton on to this stuff......whats the liklihood of them doing the same again when all the codes are up for sale on bloody ebay


do you not see the bigger picture?:?

Oh yes i see the bigger picture, i didnt manage to get 1 code never mind dozens.

I just wanted to give people with reservation codes the benefit of the doubt. That they wanted to help rather than just be in it for themselves.

I agree, but the stock will be released again the following day if it hasn't been collected. Just have to keep checking every day.


But why should we have to?? If someone only has a particular day to go shopping for whatever reasons it is just inconviencing them when they dont have to

go go hamsters. personally i don't see what the fuss is abt..but then i dont have kids who'd love one for xmas.. lucky for me(!) as for op, i agree. only reserve what u want to allow others a chance.. but sdaying that, argos should have an 'un-reserving' option if you get what i mean.. so when u change ur mind abt going to collect sommat, just log on and hit the 'release item back into stock' button...
