Ive got two left. Will pop in and try and use them. I stuggled today to find somthing to pick up and ended up giving some printed vouchers away. That was till some jobsworth asked me to leave.

I lost my ones in my email inbox and forgot to print them off, was searching for ages earlier, oh well guess I will have to stump up the full price tomorrow!

I was following the main deal page and in the early part of the promotion some members were putting up pics of loads and loads of bits. I managed ot get a fair few items but was wondering if others had managed to get away with more than they should have.

I never had any problems using my vouchers. I didnt use the same adress though. I added numbers to my street. I did wonder what will happen if they sent out junk mail to the adress though.

I guess I got fobbed off today then when he refused to serve me saying that it was an 'online transaction' and I wasn't allowed to use it!

My intention was just to use one voucher. That was till they encouraged me to take a load off books. Then when they couldnt work out if I was allowed to use them it was beyond a joke. When they changed to system it made me more determined to get as much as I could, combined with giving away as many vouchers as I could. The atitude of the staff in some cases was shocking. I was suprised not to see articles about the promotion in the paper due to way it was organised and implemented.

Didnt know there was a date for when codes would no longer be accepted so missed out, if anyone has a spare pdf they could pm which they no longer would be using I'd appreciate it. thanks

Thats more like it. What are you going to use all the batteries for? I gave up picking them up after a while. Even with all the kids toys I think I got enough for a few years.

I have one but my pc world is miles away, ill send the pdf too you and you buy something for me with my pdf voucher, (like that ps3 game for 4,99) then you post it too me , I pay postage,...then you also get a pdf voucher lol complicated.

Give some to family members.I also did the same as you i have given about 30 paper vouchers out to people going into the stores so they did not go to waste.X)
