Canon DC101 Camcorder (or MD101) £112.78 with next day delivery (+11% Quidco)

Found 4th Oct 2007
Use the voucher code 1001D3A submitted by Martyj999 to get a whopping 20% off. With quidco this should come in at about £100. Got to be good deal for somebody. Would buy it myself but alas the Bank of Mike is not looking too hot at the moment (eldest just gone off to Uni!)

The only thing is that the description appears to be of a Canon MD101 - couldn't tell you what the difference is to be honest, but got to be a good price for a Canon camcorder.

Icidentally, if the 20% code doesn't work, there is a 15% voucher on their homepage for new customers.

Confirmed as MD101 - best alternative price seems to be about £140!

Avoid these muppets , they try and make you fax your bank statements over to them if its your first order before they will send the goods. All because they dont have any decent card authorising software... oh and they dont apply the 20% code. So far I am very dissapointed with this organisation, I'l let you know if they buck and fly right!

I've bought from them in the past many times and have a totally different experience to yours, ghinzani.

Maybe you had access to a fax to send them a copy of your credit card statement, which is what they were asking me for. Sounds very dodgy to me to be honest.

I can't speak from experience as I've never used them personally, but I do know that they are a huge company and so find this very difficult to believe. I know they do most of there business through business accounts, so maybe there was a mix-up and they thought that you were trying to set up a business account with them. I'd be very surprised if they didn't have some card authorising software in place. If they really don't then I don't see how they'd have won all those awards and accolades they've stuck on the homepage.

I'm not disputing that you had a bad experience with them, just that I suspect it was very much the exception to the rule. After all they wouldn't last long in e-commerce if they treated new customer like that would they?

Blimey! I wonder if they actually do this with every new customer. I'm sure it's just an extra measure to protect the customer, but you're right it does seem a bit ott.

Were you getting your order shipped to the billing address or somewhere else. Some companies will only ship first orders to the billing address for fraud reasons, so it may be that this is to make sure that somebocy isn't using your card fraudulently and it wouldn't happen if it was sent to the billing address.

I ordered one at 3pm yesterday and it was delivered at 9.15am today
Absolute bargain and no faxing required
lovely compact camcorder, smart silver and blue trim - great service

Ruth, you might want to try and change your username - advertising your email address to the masses is not always a good idea! Don't know if this can be easily done, but a Mdoerator may be able to help.

Have you just joined up to HUKD to thank me? If so you've just put a spring in my step!

I am trying to change it but dont know how!!

Yes I joined to thank you and also because of the negative comments about the supplier when their service is obviously superb

Just looked at it and it is the MD101 not DC101
still great though

Ruth, send a private message to "Administrator" and explain what you've done and they should be able to sort you out with a new username.

Fantastic deal, ordered yesterday 112.78 but with 12.48 quidco tracked already.

£100 for a canon camcorder is indeed a hot deal.

Just got back from a trip away, and queried it with them before I went - got an email reply, basically they wouldnt budge - wanted my credit card bill details faxed to them before they'd release the goods. I bought a different one on holiday anyway, so they missed out on my business.

been trying to get on to this website since yesterday but it is still down

I suspect that they don't have anybody to fix it until Monday - bit embarassing really!:oops:

Original link not working - I think they are in the process of updating the website. However, on going direct to there site it appears to have gone up in price quite a lot!

Congrats to those who got a cheap one!
