Found 28th Nov 2012
Okay this is really a general information which people may find it helpful. I know pretty much most comet deals has been voted cold. wasn't sure where to put this.. As mainly a general info.

Walked into Charlton comet store and saw a folder with list of discounts starting today (28 November 2012) Charlton store is closing 18 December hence I suspect closer to the date it will be even more discount, but may not have much left.

So I took a picture of the list of discount percentage for each category. Unfortunately it's 3 pages and I only took 1 picture (see picture for full list). It appears to be nationwide email to all comet stores.

In short:
50% off:

Headphones
Docking stations
MP3 players
Media cards
Camera and many accessory essentials.

30% off:
Dish washers
Washing machine
Dryer
Cooker


The deal I bought was a Bose sports headset for iPhone normally £130 and got for £65.

Other examples are:

Dr beats Studio for £150 from £300
There was a lot of other headsets still such as Denon, Sony, Philips and Sennheiser. Not much Bose or Dre's left.

Other specific deal:

Hoover WMH 147 DF washing machine for £196 from £280

Hotpoint WMFG 611 £185 from £265.

Indesit IWE81481 8kg 1400rpm £222 from £317.

Hope it helps someone.

Lol. yes I'm sure 007 will also be able to change discount to 99%

Well done that man!!

And Q will be hacking away into Comet's HQ supercomputer changing the stock inventory database for cheap hot bargains. X)

Do they sell House Of Marley headphones?

Original Poster

Not sure tbh.. But there were so many different brands including A lot of Fanny Wang's at 50% off.

well done that man, comet sell off has been p**s poor so far, finally looks like they're serious about closing!

Original Poster

Yep lets hope so! Probably a week before they close discount will be even higher.. The risk is that there may be no more left to sell.. Though I noted laptops are still on 10% and so are Tv's for now.

Good find now just need laptops and Tv's to reach 50%

They just dont work on iPhone - they work on everything - jesus how I hate apple

Just went to comet in leeds and they told me these were 50% off yesterday but today 30% off????

Ok I have been told by a store manager the reason they have changed all high end headphones discount from 50% to 30% is that there is alot of people looking to buy multiple units of the beats, bose headphones to sell on.

Though in my opinion with the number of fakes out there even at 50% off not sure there is any money in them for people to sell them on.

Also another store saying that the administrators made a mistake and it was only meant to be 30% off not 50% so everyone who got them yesterday got a bargain.

Went to the Romford store and they said 50% off now on most headsets except Bose and Dre's.

Banned

Also manager said that yesterday was 50% off all.. Perhaps they realised people were hunting for the Bose's and now wants to make some more money?

Didn't have the chance to go back to Charlton store today, but popped on at Chelmsford store earlier and they assistant said 30% off Bose's but 50% off all other headsets and docking stations. Not sure how consistent these people are.

If they were happy to sell then at 50% off in the first place, what does it matter what people are gonna do with them? They are still selling them...

I agree, however its more likely that they want to make more profit before they close down as Bose's and Dre's seem to be the most popular items.

So 50% of decent headphones, 30% of the tat? Fine with me. Mind you, I'd see the doctor about those fanny wangs.

So, the discounts are less than yesterday but the post is hot - HUKD never ceases to amaze me!

When did it all of a sudden become acceptable to spend £150 on a pair of headphones?

I got 50% off my Bose QC3 and QC15 headphones last Weds. On querying with another store, this was a mistake and was only meant to be 30% but will be increased to 50% when they get their 48hr "closing down" call from the Administrators.

When all the mugs got credit cards! Ridiculous isn't it?

On day 1 (last Wednesday) all the headphones and MP3 speakers/docks were 50% but on day 2, Thursday, I was told head office had made a mistake and the Bose and Beats products were only supposed to be 30% off, have they gone back to 50% now?

On saturday the only bargain I could find in comet was 70% of the Dyson AM01 air multiplier. £60.
All the decent headphones were long gone

Comet did no favas when open - imagined they wud not be kind when closing

No, they're still 30% as per my post. They will be down to 50% as soon as the store get their 48hr "closing down" call from the Administrators.

Since people were allowed to decide what to spend their own money on.

I take it you think a £150 set of 'phones are the same as a pair for a tenner?

i went into norwich at 9am to get head phones and it was all the staff buying up all the stock ,some had 6 pairs and come back for more.

The same as why I can't understand why someone would be happy in a £25 suit from Asda or buy a giant jar of coffee from Poundland.

There is buying savvy and then there is plain old dirt cheap. That's what is nuts to me.

That suit was £30 thank you very much. And I have a good reason for it. I only wear a suite about three or four times a month.

In the last eight months i have lost eight stone which has resulted in me needing a new wardrobe every six weeks. Have gone from a 19" collar to 15", and a 50+" waist to a 36".

I would go bankrupt paying £200 for a new suit that i can only wear five times and then need to throw out.
