PHILA4 and all the others who have pursued this YOU DA MAN

HRG nice recovery, feel the hatred turn to love x x x

Update from Homebase all orders should be retaken by the 25th so I guess if you (and that includes me) haven't heard by then it is time to chase.

13 Apr 18:10
Looks like it is best to wait to next week to reconfirm orders as systems are not yet set up - there will also be a promised 'call out' to get everything back in place.

*******************************************************************************************************
13/4 16:55 Lots of stars but may be deserving of this, 2 posters are now reporting that Homebase have had a change of heart and will honour orders, now sure how this will be aranged and no officioal confirmation but a great result from all those who have put the effort in if true
*************************************************************************************************

************************** 13 APR 11:55
Anyone with any evidence of no-show deliveries without receiving cancellation first or other hardships eg credit card charges, phone charges, given away sofas etc please post them on here as there may be media interest.

Info to contact trading standards, Watchdog, Homebase managers and directors etc on page 42 from Phila4:

(sorry I can't add links to the OP)

*******

Update from Phila4 14:00 12/4
UPDATE:


I have spoken to another person in the Director's office and the position (in a nutshell) is as follows;


It was a mis-price;
All orders will be cancelled;
Best offer will be an additional 25% of the current selling price (as a 'goodwill' gesture).

I will post much more detailed information later today.

They clearly do not care about their customers one jot.

Well done to those who got them - OP misses out

Update 11/4: Seem to be as many different stories from Homebase as there were reduced Sofas, some have had deliveries, others cancellations and most have heard nothing. Phila4 is trying to coordinate info and evidence to see whether group power/publicity can get some result for everyone. I suggest anyone with any info post on the thread with all their order details and experience. Over to you Phila4.

Apologies to anyone who has been inconvenienced by my posting this up. All I can say is I am in the same boat.

*******************************************
NEWS FLASH: It is reported orders are now (5 days later) being cancelled as 'mis-price'. There are various suggestions that revenge for them taking money, paying no interest and offering no compensation despite leaving people who phoned on hold on their high rate number for 20+ minutes could be obtained by submitting spurious collect at store reservations. Obviously I wouldn't condone this and I am sure HUKD will not be allowed to keep this up but I could see how people might feel they ant to do this.

I am guessing that they had a limited number of clearance items that may get delivered at this price but they have also allowed huge numbers of back orders to be placed which of course the supplier will not want to fulfil at the price. We will see.

Personally I ordered a corner sofa at 12.30AM on the Friday which I hope may be delivered this Friday then changed my mind and ordered a small sofa and sofa bed on Sunday which I am sure I won't get. Even if I get none I won't stop sharing deals on HUKD as I have benefited from many deals too.


******************************

Most of the Aston 'leather' sofa range is 75% off (plus 8.95 delivery) less 15% this weekend (DISCOUNT15)

I am sure these are not the best leather sofas and were never worth the 'RRP' prices but the now prices are pretty good for any sort of sofa.

Other examples
small sofa from 115
Armchair 100
Large sofa 135
Sofabed 190

Also Abigail metal day bed for 180 was £850 (yeah right)

EDIT: I ordered online at 12.30AM and got a call at lunchtime arranging delivery next Friday(13th)

The Aston is a combination of corrected top grain leather and leather effect, with a soft and hardwood frame. The seat cushions are foam-filled and the back cushions are fibre-filled.

Homebase commits to original offer

We can confirm that due to human error, the Aston sofa range was incorrectly priced. We have now corrected the price and sincerely apologise for this genuine mistake.

We are aware that we have created confusion over the deals and in the interest of our customers, will be honouring all orders placed, at the price paid, that were made between Thursday 5th and Tuesday 10th April.

We are working closely with our supplier to meet the unanticipated demand and this will therefore mean a delay in the delivery of the order. We will be contacting all customers individually who placed orders between these dates. This contact will be made as soon as possible.

We are reviewing our processes to ensure that this will not happen again and would like to reassure customers that we are committed to putting them and their interests first.

Have just been on the phone to them.

Bottom line. Don't bother ringing trying to place a new Order.

They will be getting a special outbound team sometime next week contacting all to place the orders again so sit tight.

Unfortunately they can't do so now as the price is showing full on the system currently.

Cant complain at that price !

Good deal for those who need a new suite. I need a new house first though! Here's hoping a deal like this pops up when the time comes.

Maximum user weight 130kg... So if 2 of my 'healthy' friends come around, I can't sit on the sofa with them... may be better suited in a kids games room? Voted hot on price anyway.

I think that must be per seat area, so unless you're a lardy you should be ok.

Hi there are you sure it means each seat - just a little concerned

I dont know for sure but would have thought a 3 seater sofa would be 3 people weighing 130kg each.



since when do sofa's state there max user weight?

just making people worry over nothing in my eyes, it'll be the same as any other couch/sofa

Now that is a good question. I wanted the hand shown in the photo but I notice that the other hand one costs twice as much - be interesting to see what is delivered.

I was wondering that too. I read this review and it sounds good. homebase.co.uk/web…371

WOW - Hot! Order the black Reguar and Large sofa!

Advise please! Would two large sofas look silly in a regular sized living room. Want maximum bum space for minimum space, but worried it will look awful.

I figured it was best to go for a large and regular so you have the option to move them around or put them in a new room / house.

Got the 3 Seater and Two Singles. £350 in all with the 15% off.

Bargain. Have some heat OP.

Thank you! That makes sense, after looking at the dimensions for each, I discovered I get 36cm extra bum space for the large sofa. Not that much difference, I think?

I think they are left/right hand from the perspective of sitting on them not looking at them maybe?

I would call that pic left hand, but I don't know much about sofas.

cheers, on phone to them and they say they;ve got the order!

Just called homebase and its showing the wrong pic... Left Hand sofa is the right hand sofa pic... she said they tell the difference by which of your arms is resting on the arm...

She also said if I ordered through cs and not on the website, they didn't offer the 15% discount...

THANKS.... Ordered ...
Edited by: "SapphireAngel" 6th Apr 2012

I ordered on a couple of hours ago but got stuck on the processing page. I rang customer services and they had received my order, still no confirmation email though. Also I have ordered the left hand sofa, as in the picture shown, it is correct how I would want it to be. I have taken the left hand to mean left hand facing if you see what I mean? Can anyone clarify please if I am correct?

I may sound stupid here but every pic I can see looks like it meets the description as to left/right. Unless I'm missing something or they're all wrong??

But that would mean every single corner sofa they sell is wrong??


The advisers are wrong IMO.

Tesco, left hand = the same.
Edited by: "Benjimoron" 6th Apr 2012

Just ordered after calling a few local stores to see if they are available to view in the furniture show rooms. Was told they have been discontinued and not in current catalogue and would therefore not be available in any showrooms.

I concluded that I can't possibly go wrong with 2 sofas for £268! Bargain!

Thank you OP!

I am so confused :-) I have just rang customer services too, to ask if they are displaying the correct picture, the lady I spoke to said the picture is correct and left hand facing is how you are looking at it on the picture displayed? She has checked all the other sofas they are selling and left hand is left hand facing. I want the one in the picture as when I will put it on my opposite wall, the chaise part will be on my right. Can anyone help please as its driving my mad :-)
