Good price.... HOT

The harddrive looks tempting.

Any idea what time they open? Doubt id be able to get there in time.

Enjoy it. About the only decent priced item you'll ever get from Maplin.

Could you tell me the postcode?
I want to use a sat nav. I'm gonna be near there anyway, but not too sure where this retail park is.
Thanks

EDIT
sory, just googled it, its Postcode N18 3HA
That's just past Ikea, isn't it?

I think it's in the same area as Ikea, so if you follow the sat nav towards Ikea, you will see a new NEXT Home and Argos on your left - I think it's in that bit there

Nice one joe heat and rep

It's a shame the store is so far away from me, I'm really tempted to get the 1.5TB HD

Voted Hot! Thanks for the heads up

hahahaha, did they not learn from the Ikea opening??! Well at least this isnt at midnight.

D'oh bought this from Maplins in Wood Green last Friday for £129 :oops: Makes you wonder how much they buy them for :?

So.. who's gonna be wearing a hotukdeals t-shirt while in the queue!

You gotta add Heat! Well done for finding it.

nice one, thanks :thumbsup:

Don't be too shocked when they tell you that you're the 31st customer even though you were one of the first through the door:)

bet they are still making money on most of those!

If anyone wants a 1TB drive for under £80, Amazon's just dropped the price on the 1TB Buffalo [url]www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B001ER6CIW[/url] Mind choose free Super Saver delivery.

I like Maplin's (seem to have too many staff mind you for their own good). That drive's a good deal if it has an extended warranty.

lol, agreed

I'm tempted to try and get PC World to price match on this. You got a scan of the flyer?

Bought a Buffalo (500gb) in Feb and it packed up this month. Bit hard to have confidence in another or even the 1TB. Wouldnt mind this maplin one :-)

sorry, I don't have a scanner, but I don't think you'd be able to get away with it anyway because it clearly states that the offers are for the weekend only for the first 30 customers each day...

Remember it needs to be pcworld within 30 miles of this maplin

i'll try to take a (poor) photo with my webcam for you

available for immediate home delivery

this might be ker for not getting a price match

When i worked for Maplin, in the good old days, they made 45% profit on most items over £10. Limited numbers will be limited, sometimes to one in the display window the rest for the 20 staff they will have on the day. Then give it a week the store will be down to one keyholder manager. Refit parties were always good fun.
Some good deals if you can get them....

the laptop is not worth £90 if your wondering, bought it for £100 b grade stock with a voucher code and sent it straight back. get a second hand asus eee or soemthing!

check :thumbsup:

There's one at Beckton (PC World) that's about 12 miles away from this store

anyone thinking of going into PC world and asking for a price match... and also when does this offer start and finish....

also is the staples corner store within the 30 mile radius which is required for the price match..??

Its the first 30 people btw.
I only live 5mins away so if i get up early, one of those drives is mine.

Can you take a hat, silly glasses and a mustache and bag half a dozen!:thumbsup:

lol - i think its exclusive for edmonton for a reason

anyways, that said, some clever guy once said "id either want less corruption, or more chances to participte in it".
Hence, if you do get one for a hotukdealer - get one for me too (jk jk)

or one in tottenhale hale which is about 3.5 miles

Have a look on Google Maps and change it to walking directions - should give you the shortest route rather than the quickest in a car.

PC World will not match this as it must be in stock, so unless you there before they have sold out of the 30 you dont have a hope in hell (in which case you might have well have gone to Maplin anyway.

"The product must be identical, in stock and available for immediate home delivery in one of the retailers detailed below - single unit purchases only."

I can't be arsed to travel to the other side of London for 9am to get one, I can be arsed to travel 3 miles up a dual carriageway to my local PC World for 9am to try and get one.

Oh they have 65 in stock so if you cant get there on Saturday you can go on Sunday which opens at 11am and get one (assuming they dont all sell out at full price on the Saturday)

Good luck with trying although i think there would be an arguement lol

did anyone get anything ?
