And how much cash back can you get ? As no offence but it would have to be a shed load for me to buy from them,as IMO/past experiences,their customer service is shocking.
Or get the Anker one and save £40. Sound quality is fantastic, you couldn't tell it apart from this Bose one.

Are these loud
the battery on these is horrific, I get two hours out of mine on full volume. my Anker lasts 10 hours+
I've been having a good ol look into the mid priced Speakers and I think the new JBL FLIP 4 does the job nicely after looking at plenty of reviews on youtube. PLUS if your happy to buy off Ebay there's 100's of new sealed ones on there due to the fact O2 were giving them away with the S8 phones. £60 - £70 seems the going rate.
​If you want loud and bassy I'd go with this ANKER A3143 - not much more than price-wise than the Soundcore and a hell of a difference bass and general sound-wise.

Why are you comparing two different Anker speakers on a Bose deal ?

Feel free to post up your own Anker speaker deal !

This deal has not been posted up at John Lewis,and deals for this item have not been posted up every day.

Do you have some sort of issue with people posting deals on a DEAL site ?

Bizarre how some folk take a dislike people trying to help others out.

It's been posted several times on HUKD. Try to hide your aggression away and use your logic.

My comment was not a complaint or a dislike for anyone.

It was rather a joke-ish way to say it's weird seeing this particular speaker being posted so many times in my feed (I'm subscribed to "speaker" deals) in comparison to any other speaker deal posted here

Can't see where I've been aggressive,if I have then feel free to report me.

If your comment was in a joke-ish way then you should maybe use a winking face or some other symbol to indicate what you really mean,as from what little you did write,nothing indicates to me that it was meant as a bit of fun.

Pardon me, if the HUKD app worked as it should I would have ended my comment with a winking face - when tapping on the emoji button in the app it does nothing. I assume it's yet another bug
​Just in case anyone missed it the first time - ANKER A3143

I've not said anything at all about people saying they don't like the speaker and I don't have a problem with people comparing it against other models.But I will point out when someone is comparing 2 models and none are the deal model,when someone makes out that a deal is posted every day,when it's not and will point out that I don't think a tiny amount of cash back is not worth the poor customer service you may get from currys.

And no I don't have a problem if you want to link to a better speaker,but at least give a reason to why it's better so others can gain any knowledge of the product
Argos gives you a fiver voucher and these have two year warranties anyway

Argos is definitely the best deal for this speaker while the voucher deal is on,but JL might be useful once the offer ends.

Does it support 2 devices at the same time?
Bought a black Bose soundlink from Argos with a £5 voucher off next purchase and a good guarantee plus tcb
The sound of the bose speaker is real great quality very pleased with my purchase
bose one has some poor reviews on ebay about charging issues
I bought mine from Amazon for the same price last week.

Really happy works perfectly with my Amazon Dot

You are right but check out JL on Trustpilot and be shocked.

Yes I've seen the reviews on there before,and they are not good at all.But I can only go by my personal experience and family members,and I can't rate them highly enough.

Couple of examples.

Purchased a new large TV,got it home and it was faulty,took it back and had a bit of a wait to get seen to,manager of the department gave me £100 off any large TV of my choice for the inconvenience.

Purchased an iPad,a few days after purchase a fault developed,contacted customer services who said to return it to my nearest store,I explained that would cost me a fair bit in fuel as my car is pretty expensive to run,they then offered to pay me my fuel cost.Which when I arrived at the store,that's just what they did.
I have the Bose Sounddock XT - is it worth getting this instead?

to be fair this is the first time this speaker has been put on a HUKD deal at this price and with 2 year gurantee

I've a feeling the Sounddock will have better sound than this - your dock looks over twice the size.

However, this is very portable as it contains a rechargeable battery - so, once charged, it doesn't need to be plugged into the electricity mains at all times (for example, can be taken on a picnic where there's no mains supply).

Also, this can play music wirelessly via Bluetooth (BT) from any BT source/device (not just Apple ones).

The wording in the guarantee is for EU - maybe it'll be one year after all ;-)

All said just responding to some of the other comments above:

1. JL customer service is up there as we all know
2. if the battery fails after two years, apparently it's a readily available cell used in laptop batteries, so if you're a dab-hand with a bit of soldering it can be fixed easily enough
3. if you have a nationwide account, I do believe all puchases are extended by a year max 3 years (please do correct me on this someone if I'm wrong - I also think you don't actually have to use that card for the purchase!)
4. don't install the Bose software because of the spyware - it's a pretty simple device, you don't need any additional software to use it
5. there're plenty of other options, pay your money and take your choice: personally I find the two simultaneous paired devices very useful and the quality of the sound to be superb even if there are cheaper options

I bought one when this was posted a month back. The battery was draining quickly. I was planning to return it, but I tried to I reset it, and it has been okay since.
There's a new waterproof Soundlink on its way I assume to replace the present model which means a jump in price to a £129 rrp (ouch!)

As far as Bose spyware given you mostly need to steam music from an Android or Apple device to get the most out of them what about Google's or Apple's own spyware?
