Nikon Coolpix AW130 Tough Digital Camera - Black £160 (Usually £279) @ Currys

Found 30th Apr 2015
Nikon Coolpix AW130 Tough Digital Camera (latest 2015 model) is usually £279 at many online retailers.
Currys is offering £19 off the Blue, Orange and Cammo colour models, but for some reason the Black model is £119 off!!!
I'm not sure if it's a glitch or just a less popular colour, but I was planning on buying it anyway, so snapped it up, and I had no issues in the ordering process.

(Edit: Product at this price is now "out of stock")

Almost certainly a pricing error. Expect your cancellation email in due course...

(It has also been removed from instore and home delivery - so they've obviously spotted the error)

This is a good price for the camera! I think you're getting a lot for your money, so I shall add some heat.... however i'm not sure that it's as good as the competition. http://cameradecision.com/review/Nikon-Coolpix-AW130

I quite fancy the new Olympus TG-4 out in June? having RAW but that'll probably be twice this price. Also for consideration is the TG-860 with a tiltable screen and the Lumix TS6

Damn it has been taken down! Good to know I really did get it at as a sneaky deal. They had better not cancel my order - I bought a product at the price that they were selling at! We'll see.

I know it's against the HUKD ethos - however, if you discover a clear missprice like this in the future, wait for the despatch email before posting it on here.
Unfortunately, I imagine they will cancel your order.

Hopefully they will honour the sale though. If they do, make sure you don't take it to the stated 30m limit. There's a video on Youtube of the camera failing at 29m (the guy is wearing a dive computer with a 30m depth warning...so the camera clearly never went beyond its stated dive rating).

Yeah I guess that was pretty naïve of me (first post and all) Fingers crossed it does get despatched!
It's a gift and I imagine it will just be used for some snorkelling and skiing, but thanks for the heads up!

I'm not sure why people voted the deal cold. It wasn't.
But yes, you'll know for next time
It'll be fine for snorkelling and for shallow diving....but I would much sooner use a GoPro or similar for deeper diving. Also, make sure you keep the rubber seal completely clear of sand or anything else.

Fingers crossed that you get the camera.

I saw the deal when it was in stock and knowing nothing about cameras, the cold votes led me to believe that it wasn't such a good deal. Idiots voting cold for no reason. Gutted I missed out.

In future, just go straight to Ebay and look at 'completed listings'.
If the market is paying north of £240 for something that is selling brand spankers for £160, then you can guarantee it is a tidy deal :).
I would have bought this if I was fussed about making a profit. However, I'm off travelling soon so don't really have the time to faff about with Ebay. Also, I have a Lumia 1020 and a cheap action camera - so this wouldn't really serve any purpose for me.

But yes, never consider a rash of cold votes to be indicative of how good a deal actually is! There just seems to be an element of people on here who like to vote cold regardless!
