YEP!, so I noticed here ...

And hopefully, more spot's in and around the outskirts of London will be added to this soon enough also though?. :-)

So who is installing them and how are they going to make money? Or who is going to cover the cost? Hope it's not council tax

It is all about the advertising, so there is a reasonable chance that whilst they sound great in theory once they start needing maintenance due to vandalism, IT bugs, etc that you'll find the advertising panels are kept clean and in working order whilst the useful functions are allowed to fall into disrepair (or slow-time repairs) just like most info points and similar that we've seen in town centres in the past.

I hope I'm proved wrong though.

InLinkUK from BT is a new communications service that will replace hundreds of BT’s existing payphones with new, ultramodern units, called InLinks, delivering free ultrafast public Wi-Fi and other free premium services including mobile device charging, access to local services and national landline and mobile phone calls. Residents and visitors of London will be able to enjoy InLinks’ services from Summer 2017, with plans for other cities across the UK to benefit from InLinks in the near future.

InLinkUK from BT is provided through a joint venture between Intersection, the company behind LinkNYC, and leading UK out-of-home media company Primesight, in partnership with BT.

InLinkUK from BT’s ultrafast Wi-Fi, access to maps, directions, and local services via the touchscreen tablet, device charging, and UK landline and mobile phone calls are all free services. International and premium rate phone calls can be made by using a calling card.

InLinkUK from BT comes at no cost to the taxpayer, national or local. Deployment and maintenance of InLinks will be funded by revenues from advertising on the unit’s digital displays.

Out of stock.
Presumably Amazon is pricematching Medion's clearance pricing for this item. OK so it's 2.4 GHz and it's going to half your speed, but decent warranty length and great price. Heat.
For the price hot, but compared to the ones that run the signal through your electric wiring these can be finicky.

well mine arrived about a week ago but just got round to setting it up. Overall.....whilst only running in repeater mode at the moment, its a lot better than the VM supercrud 2 in wireless range.

I was under the impression that when running it in wireless extender mode that it would use/share the same ssid as the main hub, but doesn't seem to be the case.....shows up as Tendaxxxxx.....but I can join that fine. I wonder if it allows to simply enter a matching SSID or if that causes problems

I've yet to try running it as a main router with my SH2 in modem mode however, but I like some of the options I can see in it, compared to the SH2 rubbish
rev6
Spend a bit more if you're going down the Modem mode route. Get something with Gigabit ethernet ports at least.

Cheers, I'd ordered it anyway - worth a shot trying out at the price. I'm going to connect it as my main router, with the SH in modem mode, just out of curiosity to see how well the range works etc.....but will then shortly after revert back and then use it just as a wifi repeater, as my SH wireless is dead after just 2 walls about about 10metres.
Midnight.Tboy
Ordered...good deal. I have a cruddy Virgin Superhub 2 - 2.4ghz often drops out....and the range is terrible. Not sure whether to use this as a repeater to see how well it extends (but suspect will still get the dropouts) .....or attempt to use it with SH2 in modem mode. Only downside then would be the 100mb ports intead of gigabit

Excuse my newbie question I'm new to this sort of thing can i ask what would the main benefits of having this piece of software be?
Simply to find the best wifi channel that is reliable and will potentially give the highest speed locally. A lot of things can affect wifi from wireless doorbells to some microwaves - maybe not yours but your neighbours. The tool allows you to see which channels have less traffic and on your channel look at how strong or weak it is when you move to different rooms or something happens - like pressing your neighbours doorbell.
Most people will not need this type of application as they are happy with speeds and do not want to tinker and optimise their networks as they are afraid of breaking them - often a good thing not to, most new router software will try to do this for you. If you are brave or annoyed that your signal keeps dropping and you do not believe your router is faulty, then its worth optimising.
Top man, thanks for the comprehensive reply!

If you want a quick and easy way to check what channel your neighbours wifi is broadcasting at type the following into a command prompt:

netsh wlan show networks bssid

That will show you all the WiFi networks in range and the channel for each. Nothing against this app, I've not tried it, but if that's all the info you need it only takes a second.

Your WiFi can be affected if neighbours routers broadcast the WiFi signal on a similar channel. By using a channel nobody else is your wifi signal doesn't have others to conflict with.

I have the one up from this too, it's OK but the buttons to rotate the camera or do anything are so loud and you can't turn the confirmation beep off the only thing is to turn the monitor down which is a pita.
I have the next model up from this. It's good sound and picture. the only downside is that you have to look directly at the monitor to see a clear picture unlike the BT one we had before that could be viewed at any angle.

Question (for those who own this) how different is it from one of those tropical fish thermostats..? I don't see why this would need to cost £100+ for a precision heater..
Those poor fish that you want to use an 800 watt precision immersion cooker on. Differences include the precision of this device is at 0.01 of a degree, range of temp the components operate under, embedded circulation and also when you add comms to the fish tank those prices also jump a lot.

Undercutting Google Wifi before it even launches - 6th April - £129 for one or £229 for a 2-pack
£250 for three BT units is cheaper per unit than £229 for two - shame you can't currently buy a BT 2-pack or sell off the unwanted third unit as you can't currently add a fourth unit (so no market for buying spare units).
bt hubs do not have mesh capability, so waste of money.
You don't use the hub wifi at all with this setup - the mesh is created by the three units strategically positioned around your home.
yes but this system does have mesh capability. one is a main unit, other 2 are secondary. the 2 secondary only talk to main unit and not each other.
true mesh will allow any unit to talk to each other, so you could daisy chain mesh devices in a line and they all pass along the data.
The BT system isn't mesh if all 3 don't connect to all 3. It's just standard repeaters.
No they have features such as roaming where it will move your device connection from one unit to another automatically if you get a better signal from another unit - you don't get that with repeaters and means you can move around the house without having to manually disconnect from a weak signal. Some routers have a roaming option where you can force a disconnection below a certain signal level - I use this on my main Asus router so it will drop connections below 70dB forcing a reconnection to a different access point in the house.
Of all the subjects you could choose I think this is one where I don't need to be taught how to suck an egg.
Roaming is a client decision, not an AP decision. Repeaters or not, the client will automatically disconnect from one AP and connect to another if its RSSI drops below the configured threshold (within the driver typically) and a stronger signal from another AP is available which advertises the same SSID and security parameters. Of course, the AP dumping clients can have a similar effect but it's not as nice, given that the client threshold may not have been exceeded, meaning that the client may try to reconnect to the same AP. That introduces a period of disconnection which is often longer than client-based roaming.
Some systems use technologies such as 802.11r and 802.11k. Others use WDS. Each provides different ways to successfully roam. True repeaters can't use 11r or 11k as they don't share association and authentication info, but they can use WDS if their firmware supports it.

Some cheat Such as Meru where it transmits a virtual BSSID that moves around physical radios or at least they used to not sure if the latest (Now fortinet BTW they got acquired) kit still does it that way


Well Meru used SCA architecture which was proprietary, so not standards-based. It got around the roaming issue but meant you only had the ability to configure 3 ESSIDs before you ran into trouble RF-wise. As well as that, because RF is RF, to avoid interference only one AP across the whole network can transmit at a time. That is great for co-channel interference but bad for clients as they have less airtime than in multi-channel architecture deployments.

Fortinet actually use that architecture, based on Meru's kit, in their products now. There's a good reason why Meru ran into financial difficulties!

Yes it does, but it works a bit differently to Aironet mesh. Meraki isn't a true mesh but more like a repeater topology where the AP can choose the best candidate to connect to in order to shift traffic. There's lots of scenarios that can be considered, each of which introduce their own challenges. An important thing to note is that for every repeater hop you lose 50% of the available bandwidth to that AP.

I think this product is aimed at those of use who want a fast, effective and easy to implement solution to poor wifi - it's interface is simple, anything remotely complex is hidden - so probs not the right solution for those who like to tinker a lot.

It is but the problem is that while it's simple and easy, it's not as fully featured as the others e.g. Google Wifi and Eero can pause not only all internet, but it can pause specific devices and other features like Guest access. Also, you'll know they'll get Alexa or Google assistant sometime down the line as well...

So, BT's offering is like in between, new and simple over the traditional stuff, but not newer and fancier than the others...

If they don't lower the price then how will they sell more of these?

I mean, I can't imagine BT will spend too much time and effort adding loads of new features to compete with the new fangled stuff like Google Wifi and eero, but couldn't they add more traditional wireless router stuff to please the tinkerers?

...We tend to stick to IEEE standards though and one of the limitations is that 802.11r specifically doesn't work on Cisco Mesh networks. I suppose that goes some way toward the argument that if fast-roaming is in use, mesh isn't the technology behind the product, while if it is in use, fast-roaming isn't in use.

There are two key things to remember. The first is that the client has to actually support 802.11r for fast-roaming to work and the second is that the client doesn't have to do what the AP advises in any case. That is part of the 802.11 standard.

Eero is another one of these "mesh" wifi products. It uses their own proprietary mesh solution and does support 802.11r and plans for 802.11k in the pipework but admittedly, they haven't nailed down the full 802.11r implementation yet.

Isn't Cisco's Meraki a mesh networking product that also features 802.11r?

4GB depends what your using it for generally most applications dont use more than 4GB anyway so that they conform with 32bit operating systems aswell less production cost. So in general your device will perform fine with mot applications and under a fairly decent load unless your planning on using at as video editing machine and 3d rendering, in which case why are you even buying considering this?
In a time where Chrome can routinely eat up 1GB of RAM I don't think it's unreasonable to expect the Pro lineup to come with 8GB as standard.
By all means sell a 4GB version but there's nothing 'Pro' about it. Casual user yes.

What if I told you that you don't have to use Google Chrome? Microsoft's own browsers are now actually good.

However, as a Surface Pro 3 owner (i5, 4GB, 128GB) I can say for sure that the device is more than fast enough even with Chrome running.
K1LLER_HORNET
m or standard would work better and then it would make sense to call this a standard device, not premium.
Tell Microsoft and Apple. They use it in their product names.
I'm just saying that 4GB is a base/entry spec is more suited to a non pro (premium) device such as the regular surface.
Hopefully they fix it in this year's refresh.

To be honest focussing on the RAM is probably the wrong area, if anything, the problem with the base specification is the lack of storage, that's going to be a much bigger issue. As a professional programmer, regularly running visual studio sessions and SQL server, I still find 4GB would be adequate, but 8GB is much nicer, but I simply couldn't live in 128GB, I struggle with 256GB + 128GB microsd, enough that I'm looking for USB 3 SSD storage (anyone got recommendations?).

I'd like to see the next version up the levels of RAM and storage, but especially storage, without increasing the cost.

The 4GB config really shouldn't exist in the Pro lineup imo.
4Gb is fine for most users, the SSD is fast enough for the virtual memory and there is a reason why 128Gb SSD devices hardly every come with 8Gb: page file and the hibernation file are much bigger so less free disk space.
Again a user fails to read and comprehend my comment.
I said 4GB shouldn't be included in the Pro lineup.
Put it in the Surface family but start the Pro sku with 8GB. That's what I said. Not that the 4GB model shouldn't exist. It just makes little sense to have it in a Pro branded device imo.

I guess 'Pro' must mean most casual users and their nan's nowadays.
i agree with you for the most part on the 'pro' naming attribute. quite misleading and should come standard with 8GB ram and do think the prices are extremely high for what is on offer however im working on the basis that while yes this device is expensive and should be of higher spec standard, this deal isnt bad for such a great capable machine regardless of the lack luster of additional ram. but as aforementioned the majority if not eveybody who uses this should be buying to do things that would utilise such a huge ram buffer. unless there idiots...

The Surface Pro range is a 64-bit setup.
Agreed though on the 4GB comment. For everyday users, 4GB will be fine.
In addition, I wouldn't recommend making a new account if you already have one.
Sorry i was working on the presumption that everybody knew the specs and operating system architecture i should have been more clear that it is infact 64bit architecture and operating syste, and capable of running full X86 based programs... i was just making the opposing argument to this that yes its a powerful machine but will never use its 4GB max ram cache unless your doing very intensive stuff which makes me beg the question why you'd look at this device...

Unifi is such a crock of ****. Cheap and cheerful...
What complete and utter crap you talk. I've rolled out nearly a hundred of these devices over numerous sites. They are reliable, offer excellent coverage and even though never sold as a "mesh solution" hand over clients from device to device extremely efficiently.
The web based management means that I can easily see all hundred devices through the same interface, I can see if a device has gone offline and I can push firmware updates out through the same interface.
You've rolled out hundred, my company has rolled out thousands. We have been using them for about 5 years. The fact of the matter is they are not good enough anymore. There is very little debug the guest policies are intermittent and the unifi software doesn't scale.
...But that doesn't really apply to using a couple at home, or in a small office, where they're most likely going to work absolutely fine, and be at the kind of budget that those places can afford. And I doubt a corporate buyer would be looking on HUKD for these :D

Yeah it depends on what you want to do with them. They are ok for the price and for home use but in a corparate/congested area I wouldn't use them. As with anything wireless it depends on the rf environment around them.
Sorry to hijack, but sort of relevant : Are relatively cheap Cisco enterprise WiFi units such as you find on eBay, useable by normal humans at home? Or do they all need some proprietary controller in order to operate? If they can be used reasonably easily, then to me this is the only real competition for Ubiquiti at this price.

(I bought a couple of Cisco 7965s for very cheap off eBay once. Great phones, but really hard work to get operating, running SCCP on PiaF etc. It was fun but I never want to do something like that again, if you know what I mean.)

Would this work without controller? Can I upgrade the firmware etc without any subscription (like cisco ap)
Yes you can run your own controller on Windows, Linux, Mac OSX - you don't have to use their cloud. The controller doesn't have to run all the time, you can upgrade/configure the APs and then shut it down. Only stats and guest login pages need the controller to be always available.


Thanks. Is it dual band 2.4/5 GHz?
I've got the UAC Pro, and am delighted with it, absolutely solid, it's as reliable as using a cable, just not always as fast of course. I'd happily recommend it to anyone. I'll never go back to cheap domestic wireless modem/router combos now.

I have one of these as well from a previous deal. Doesn't work for me on Virgin.
Keeps cutting off. Really not impressed
I've also got one of these and it has worked really well for me.
Has worked well for me in my house for over a year now.
Got one of these. Set it up, seemed to believe it helped.
Few weeks later, those areas I used to have blank spot in wifi, I now have again.

Will get around to sorting the extender again, but I'm not impressed.

Probably getting cold votes because it's expensive to run with the non brand toner racking in at £30+ at the normal reputible 3rd party cartridge suppliers. If you're prepared to risk ebay type places then it's a good deal cheaper but it's does carry some risk but they also mostly make no mention of how much use they will provide. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-X-Black-TN2320-Toner-Cartridges-for-Brother-HL-L2300D-HL-L2320D-HL-L2340DW-/181729458706?hash=item2a4feb7a12:g:ap8AAOSwqu9VPzyS

Re-read the comment, I pointed out where you can get 4 of them for £20. However, buying from a reputable firm with a history of quality goods is important to many people. The provider you've linked to I've never heard of and further to that has as far as I can tell after a quick check got not feedback in terms of customer ratings (at least not on any places I'd consider to place much trust in.

You complained about why this deal was getting no heat, the toners are not great value compared to other comparable printers and I've pointed out why.

I have a couple of these and considering getting a third. Great cameras and the app/web app works well. The major drawback is that they chew through batteries if you are doing lots of recording. Each camera uses four CR123 batteries such as these https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000KVZRK2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . I would be delighted to hear if anyone has found any cost-effective rechargables.
The Arlo has appeared in the US in a rechargeable version, there are Amazon reviews on that. In the UK Netgear are probably dumping all old stock before introducing the new version https://www.arlo.com/en-us/products/arlo-pro/

Lot of money for screen size unless you *really* need your TV to be smart - as others have said, cheaper ways to upgrade a "dumb TV". Last TV was a Samsung and wasn't at all impressed with quality or longevity though some seem better than others.

Just in case you guys don't know, Linksys = Belkin, it's not the same quality as 5 years back when they were part of Cisco. Cold for me

Oh I see, I had a Belkin wireless N router about 10 years ago and was a lot better than my current Superhub 3.0. Is this not a good buy then?


Superhub 3 is a rebranded version of ARRIS TG2492S so no surprises that it was better, my warning is for those people who think that this is as reliable as lisnksys used to be, and it's not!

I used to have this router before I got my current one. this is a very stable router. can handle 6-8 wireless clients and 4 LAN clients without any slowdown. However wireless range is not good for large house.

yeah I'm keen to know the difference I got the same email saying they are shipping the essential WiFi extender.
I got offered the Essential WiFi Range Extender 300 as an alternative at the same price too. Anybody got any views/experience of the different models? It doesn't have as many flashy lights and RRP is not as high suggesting it isn't as good of a deal, but more interested in speed/coverage/reliability.
Due to a stock error we are unable to supply you with the BT WiFi Range Extender - N300 that you recently ordered with Currys/PC World online.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience that you may have been caused on this occasion. 

As a way forward I have checked our website and found BT Essential WiFi Range Extender 300 as as alternative, which is more expensive but we will not take any additional payment. If you wish to view this model on our website please use the products number 179422.

We have now arranged for the BT Essential WiFi Range Extender 300 to be sent out to you. You will shortly receive communication from one of our couriers once your order has been dispatched from our warehouse.

Contact BT as I think they must have a batch of crap one's. My homehub 6 has been playing up for a while, so BT are sending me a new one tomorrow.
This is my second one as well, same issues as the first they sent me. Hopefully you have better luck, I will contact them again.

This has been the price for over a month now on Amazon.Good if only 2.4GHz else for dual band the EX3700 is ideal.
Got this at this price a couple of days before Christmas
, i needed my wifi extended about 3 metres further for a gym at the end of the garden, this does what i need it to do, if you can reposition your router then that may work for your needs, if like me you had nowhere else to put the router then this should do the job.

For those who do not have prime, this tool is handy to get over the £20 threshold Super saver delivery tool
I found this device caused problems for my USB 2.0 wireless mouse receiver. After changing the Netgear A6210 adaptor to USB 2.0 mode, my wireless mouse was working. All the USB ports on my computer are USB 3.0
Wireless adapters are notorious for getting bad reviews from people who blame them for bad wifi caused by the router, ISP or slow computer. Also on this amazon product you have reviews for 6 different products under 1 rating. I have this adapter and it does the job fine - I needed one with a fat antenna and extension cable because the edimax one I had wasn't getting a strong enough signal.
plath
did a google search and there's lots of negative reviews about this product. and netgear has been having a lot of bad press in general anyway. would rather have a tp-link or asus product.
I always take reviews with a pinch of salt. Often people don't know how to use a product and give a review without understanding how it functions. At the end of the day if it doesn't work as described your entitled to a refund. Amazon have great customer service so I will be trying it out.

Got this and plugged it into my wired switch in the loft to create a more powerful access point in the loft.
Works great.
Only problem is I cannot connect to the TP-links Web admin pages.
Tried the http://tplinkwifi.net/ but that either gives DNS errors or says 'Oops you are not connected to your TP-link network'
I checked my main Asus Wifi router for attached devices and the Tp-Link does not appear in the list.
It does list the laptop I connected wirelessly to the Tp-Link as a wired connection!!

Does anyone know how to access the admin web pages? I also tried the usual 192.168.1.1 etc but that just takes me to my main Wifi router...
Just to answer my own question - in case it help anyone else; I had to unplug the ethernet cable from the Tp-Link and then I can access the Admin pages. Once the ethernet cable is plugged in and connected to the main router you can no longer access the tp-link admin pages.

only suitable for travel within the UK or for stunters that would like to build wonky power tower adaptor stacks.
Should have been delivered with EU clip on at least and TP-link do not offer the part as a spare.
Thought your comment was over the top considering 99% of UK purchased small appliances do not come with EU plug adaptors either.
Hardly a big deal to spend a quid and hardly consider it as a wonky tower stacker - http://cpc.farnell.com/pro-elec/1518a-wht/travel-adaptor-uk-to-european/dp/PL15135
I bet most of those 99% of small appliances do not get labelled a "travel" device. There are about a gazillion competing devices out there that are called just what they are without pretending to ve suited for something they are not (or no more then (cheaper) alternatives).
Have to agree with you. Might be a small thing, but when something gets labelled a travel device then is should be able to travel without additional adaptors etc.
I think the overall device is quite clunky sized - I would have preferred if it was flatter and wider rather than sticking out so much. Cant plug it into a socket behind a cupboard without moving the cupboard forward several inches.
Also cant go under the cupboard on an extension socket - even though there is considerable clearance!

Hardly a big deal to spend a quid and hardly consider it as a wonky tower stacker - http://cpc.farnell.com/pro-elec/1518a-wht/travel-adaptor-uk-to-european/dp/PL15135


I bet most of those 99% of small appliances do not get labelled a "travel" device. There are about a gazillion competing devices out there that are called just what they are without pretending to ve suited for something they are not (or no more then (cheaper) alternatives).

Alternatively you can buy a refurb i5 4460 or 4570 from eBay for £170. The CPU benchmarks identical to this 6400. Spend that saved money on a better PSU and a GTX*whatever* for a gaming rig.
could you post a link to one like this, thank you

Or if you just want a pc that works out of the box and have got no intention of building your own pc, buy the one listed in op.


but it isn't hard to install a graphics card.

you open the case. take the old one out. put the new one in. attach one of the power cables inside the case.

i just bought a refurubished dell workstation on ebay for 150 quid that is only slightly slower cpu wise than my previous pc but has a much bigger power supply so I could put a better graphics card in.

Just for comparison, not voted:
The case, psu and motherboard on this are unlikely to be great, you never know. However for a cheap home build just as an example:
i3 6100 - £101.19
Gigabyte H110 Mobo - £39.98
Corsair 8gb DDR3 - £32.45
Western Digital 1tb 7200 HD - £42.95
Thermaltake Versa Case - £26.48
DVD rewriter - £11.42
EVGA 80+ Power Supply - £37.21
Total = £291.68
The issue here as per above is Windows. I'm sure some people can get it for cheap or might have a spare copy, anyways that is for you to decide. Also, the spec above has a slightly better processor and "probably" better long term life with regards to upgrading.
Those prices are not deals though, just normal prices.
Just for comparison, not wanting to get into battle :)

+ 5:1 Multi-Card Reader
+ WiFi card
+ Bluetooth card
+ 12 month next day collect and return warranty

I would guess most people in the market for a pc have no desire to build their own, whether or not they save themselves £30 odd.

Also, don't the £12 eBay license keys get restricted en masse every few months?
Yes £30 isn't worth the bother for the average PC user and certainly having the potential risk of the OS stopping working is a major pain in the rear.

I think you have to look at the target market as well.
People who generally build machines these days do so because they want specific hardware in them - possible a sweeping statement, but probably not by much. Again, generalising, those people will be building higher spec'd machines that what is a basic office machine.
So whilst Axeboy has demonstrated that you could get components to come in at roughly the same price (ignoring the OS as per his and Spannerzone's comments) in practice would anyone do this? I doubt its worth the cost saving (if any) or the time.
For a basic office machine, the specs are fine and chances are someone buying this system just wants it to replace an outdated machine with as little faff as possible; certainly not to build one!
All good points, in fact I used to build my own for those very reasons but once it dawned on me that a Dell for £250 to £350 would suit my needs I never bothered building my own again. Sure I add memory and SSD's but there's absolutely no point for me in wasting time building a machine when these prebuilt ones work fine for my needs. I don't game so that probably makes a big difference of course.

£88.98 on Amazon, next day delivery if you have prime and with £35 off, brings this too £53.98. Thanks for heads up oP. Heat added.
But it`s got terrible reviews on Amazon! :(
Hahah :D Had a nosey on reading this, most do seem to be user error... one guy whinging that he had to install printer drivers to print! Zomg, the pain, the terror, oh wait no.
Haha. Maybe. The other thing to be thought about is the rather massive footprint, unless you really do need A3 for copying or printing,
A useful feature (with all modern HP printers) is e-print which means you can print to it from anywhere you can send an email from (and it will automatically recognise pdfs. )
I`m quite tempted by this. :)

Set mine up today, footprint's not so bad when it's out of the box - smaller than your average a4 colour laser was when they still cost over £250..

And yeah, the eprint etc features aren't bad, most things you should be able to do you can do fairly easily from any device. Still, the extra convolution in setup to make all that work does seem to blame for a lot of confusion from Amazon customers who are "just trying to print" :)

the only other sort of deal i could see was the 7510 on amazon warehouse. i bought it along with a couple other item to get the £30 off £100 selected item.

in theory 2 printers about 130 minus 30 for promotion ( you could even use the £5 gift voucher too save another £5) = 100 then 2 cadhbacks of £25 so 50 so 2 a3 printers £50.

I didnt buy 2 printers but brought the total to 100 with other items so 100 - 30 -5 - 25 = £40 for the printer plus other bits that were 35 before deduction. Hopefully the returner didnt use the code . guess I'll see.

quidco shows the £70 cashback BUT for a £21.99 + sim contract .... so how are you guys getting the £70 to track when quidco states sim cost has to be £21.99 plus
I assume it's tracking at £70 because the EE package was originally £34.99 despite it now being £19.99. Whether Quidco will actually pay out £70 or realise the 'glitch?' and reduce it to £44.50, who knows...

Terms & conditions

Cashback will not be paid on 30 day rolling contracts
Cashback will not be paid on upgrades
Cashback will not be paid on sharer tariff purchases
Cashback will not be paid on existing customer sales (excluding 2nd line SIM only sales)
Cashback will only be paid per basket and not per item. A seperate transaction will be required for each purchase
Please also see the retailer's standard terms and conditions for purchase as listed on their site
In the unlikely event that your cashback is declined you must raise a cashback claim with 30 days of the date the purchase was declined

Cashback will not be paid in conjunction with any other offer, voucher or discount code unless listed on this page, or with any other discounts such as staff or student discounts
Cashback may not be paid on VAT, delivery, card payment fees, taxes or any other additional charges
