Maplin Freestanding upright fan - £23.99 instore (Christchurch)

LocalFound 17th AprEdited by:"CBeems"
3 speeds, sleep and nature modes (I don't know either) a timer and a remote. Down from £40. In store at Christchurch.

I picked one up and haven't turned it on yet but it all looks fine.

I specifically went to Home Bargains to get a similar deal, they don't have any so went to Maplin on the off chance. Thought this would be helpful to those in a similar situation. Pretty surprised at the cold rating...

If someone could let me know why this is getting a cold rating? Seems I'm out of the loop on why this is such a terrible deal.

If you are happy with your purchase why does it matter?

Well if it is only in Christchurch then not very useful. Maplin are closing down so it may be in other stores, unfortunately your link only points to your picture which isn't very useful if you want to check the stock in your local store.
If your link pointed here it might be more useful, I think this is the model

It is not the model. The model isn't on the site. I did check. Cold because the picture or link isn't good enough? Or cold because the it's only in store? Both seem really stupid to me.

Curious about the site. I'm not sure why you would down vote something A) when it's just not good for you, but might be for others or B) When you've already seen it's on it's way down.

Just strange.

Can't you see, IF there is only one in Christchurch and there are no more there or anywhere else, people are going to vote it cold.
The link which should point to Maplin and as it doesn't seem to be there anyway, so it's probably what people here would call a wild goose chase. Which most people are tired of doing
fan-cold deal, heater-hot deal..

The site should remove the in store button then I guess. Instant cold deal.

IF there is one in your local then you get a nice deal. I went on a "wild goose chase" for the deal on here that is hot for a very similar fan. Home Bargains in my area didn't have fans in yet. Ah well.
@CBeems. The 'Get deal' Link should at least point to Maplin not your picture IMO

No, you've put the 'get deal' link to your picture, where it is useless. I'm surprised it passed moderation.
I've put the picture of it at the top where at least people can see what they're supposed to be looking for
You've not even tried it AND you know nothing about it, you say.
All this and you are surprised you've got cold votes!
Don't stop posting deals.
There's quite an element of unpredictability about it.
It's good when you get it right.

Please don’t be put off from posting deals just because this one went cold.


It is frustrating when you take the time to post and it goes cold but aleast people were good enough to leave feedback as to why.


I’ve seen what I think are good deals go cold in the past, sometimes there is little logic in voting.

On example people on here hate sport direct, they could be selling stuff way cheaper than anyone else and the deal will still go cold.
I thought this was UK hot deals not NZ hot deals ......

Yeah it's nice for people to let me know and yeah it is frustrating to take time to just help others out for people to almost on mass say your efforts were meaningless, but more then that, not even give a reason.

It has put me off. But in fairness not just this, a few people who comment on here can be pretty shitty about the whole thing. Even on a free website designed to save you money. I had wrongly assumed it would be a more welcoming community then it has turned out, so far, to be. The internet all over though right?

Thanks though, it was nice to read your response.
The other modes basically alter the fan speed or stop start it in some way.

Or to put it another way, if its in your bedroom they wake you up as the noise level constantly varies.

Yeah they do seem a tough crowd to please and some members nit pick as the smallest details but the site does have a ignore button so you can block the worse offenders.

Took me ages to pluck up the courage to post in the first place, then to start posting regularly. I was too put off by the harsh criticism in the comments.

But there are plenty of good eggs too here. Lots of members are helpful sharing deals, codes, advise on saving money.

This site has helped saved me money and it’s nice to give back and help others save too when you spot a good deal.

You are right. Thanks mate. I appreciate it.
Upvoted - this is a nationwide deal as all the maplins branches I have been to have had the same deal on. The fan itself isn’t great, but it’s still cheaper than CPC!
