I am a member of this dining scheme and can highly recommend it-some really good restaurants on their books-if you eat out in London even just once a month you can save a fortune.
Voted hot and good luck!

Great find Newbold. Hats off to ya!

Can't get on to site. :-(

Anyone successful???

It keeps crashing on me... grrrr even when I get onto the page.....:x

Anyone having any luck with this? I enter my details then get "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".

Same here no joy....

Oh I see, it's a draw. beuh..

Original Poster

It wasn't made at all clear this was just a draw - rather sneaky.

My original post, but feel free to vote it cold!

heat added-I am in the draw-not op fault that is was slightly misleading

the offer is open...

“We are sorry, but due to huge demand we had problems with our servers. We appreciate that this must be highly frustrating for you.

The 2,000 annual memberships have now gone, but please do complete the form for a guaranteed one free month membership. This offer will stay open for one week”

Yes took me ages to register on the site and then after putting details in, was told its a draw.
Quite misleading even on their Homepage.
Oh well hope someone gets lucky and wins the membership card.

i got in the draw i emailed them and they siad that those who got that message are likely to get the 12 months

Ok but when will this draw take place and will all those who got thet email get a confirmation email to say they have got the membership? What is their email address?

very Sneaky to get details of people only to say you been entered in a draw...

RUBBISH!

I won!!! Thanks Hotukdeals!! :thumbsup:

*Edit - Winners list has been published! tastelondon.co.uk/win…tml

Just got this message:

Thankyou for applying...


We would like to apologise unreservedly for the server issues that we experienced at roughly 1:55pm today. Despite a number of calls to our hosting company prior to launch, and being assured that the site would not crash, as you will no doubt be aware the site went down for roughly 20 minutes - and only returned intermittently after that until the traffic 'tailed off' somewhat. We are aware that this was frustrating for everybody, as much as it was for us.



We will be sending you all an email tomorrow letting you know if you were one of the lucky 2000 who qualified for a full year, or if you will be receiving a 1 month membership.

Again, on behalf of the whole tastelondon team, we would like to apologise for the server issues, thank you for your patience and offer many thanks to everybody who entered.

We hope you all thoroughly enjoy your tastelondon memberships!

The taste team.

i got the same message...

Rubbish..Why send emails telling people and at the same time publish names..

I am glad I didnt get it they publishing names.. See how many people check names on facebook to see who is who... JOKE

Duplicate names.... 16 Patel's 3 with same name.

I got one. My hubby, my mum and sister didn't but I presume that's because I entered myself 1st so it was actually the first 2000.

i don't remember agreeing to having my name published... data protection? [url]www.ico.gov.uk[/url] if anyone want to complain. obviously a big marketing ploy to get people interested and aware in their card. they'll probably email everyone else to say they have a month free now that they have our personal details to spam us for eternity.

.. Thats why I gave them my "spam" email address! They can flood that for all i care!

just check the winners list and I got one!!

didn't know as it kept crashing

excellent

Yes their fault, not yours. So it was hot for me anyway.

I wonder how many went for this just 'cos it was free, or did everyone read the bit about only entering if you can make use of the offer and not to apply for just a one off visit? :thumbsup:

And I think someone has way too much time if he checked all the names on there looking for duplicates. :w00t:

i thinkk its me on the winners list. last but 6 or something but Paul smith is qquite a common name. i hope it is me. when would we get the card or have we already had the card? if you am a winner?

Saw my name on the list too but today I received an email saying that I did not win. My name is not common. Anyway here's the reply when I asked them to check again:

[COLOR="Blue"]Good Morning


The database has been de-duplicated at household/individual level, if you entered your details more than once and there was a slight variation e.g. 10 High Street and 10 High Street (no space) the system will recognise as two separate records.



This is a rare, but highly probable in this case.



Alternatively, you may have the same name as someone on the winners list and not be a winner.


All memberships, both annual and 1 month memberships are being despatched this week so you will find out for definite once you received it...



Hope you are a winner! [/COLOR]

My name was on the winners list, then they emailed me to tell me i hadn't won and they'd send me a one month membership, then yesterday my annual membership arrived in the post. hmm. yay.
