Day Four: Four Electric Fire Sets - £355.00 - akme
*******************************

What happens? Well, for each of TWELVE days you'll be asked to find the cheapest and/or the best deal online. Viewers in previous years will know that sometimes the hunt will be for something STRAIGHTFORWARD, like a specific DYSON cleaner, but other days it'll be for something a bit odd or weird, like the BEST PRESSIE FOR DAD for under a tenner. Each day is different!

Some general rules:

1. I'll pop up each day's competition as early in the day as I can, so you have as much time as you need to seek out the best online deal. You'll find it here on HUKD at MISC - and I'll TITLE it with something like '12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - DAY ONE' - so its a little easier to find. Entries can come in as late as 11.59pm that evening.

2. You can enter as many times as you want in a day. Its not like some of those comeptitions where you get just one shot and you're done. You can come back and try again if someone beats your entry. Just reply to the current thread with details of your find, the price, and a link. I'll INCLUDE the current winning price in the title of the thread so you know where we are with things.

3. Sometimes its about the price (so cheapest wins), and sometimes its about the originality of the thing. Either way, I have the final say (sorry ) in who the winner is, and will try to announce it in that day's thread as quickly as possible. Everything has to be obtainable from a UK-based online source, should be available and IN STOCK. Prices you give should be for INDIVIDUAL ITEMS, SHOULD INCLUDE VAT AND DELIVERY. EBAY items are EXCLUDED, and ITEMS SHOULD BE NEW, not SECOND HAND. DISCOUNT CODES can be used but should only be available to the GENERAL PUBLIC, but VOUCHERS can't. Items must be deliverable to a UK address (i.e. its not acceptable to pick them up from a local store etc). QUIDCO and other cashback services can't be included in the final price, as you won't get to see the saving for some time. Sorry

4. We're doing this for the fun of it, so regrettably there aren't any prizes. That's unless some nice soul comes up with the goods and wants to push out some freebies to winners. There are some nice people out there after all!

5. Note that I'm not liable if you accidentally end up buying an item online! You're responsible for your actions, so don't click that BUY button to check out the price of something unless you know you're not actually buying it

6. That's it. Have fun, be nice. Be original, and enjoy!

im new to this............could you please let me know how to make a new thread?

does it have to be solid gold or can it be gold plated?

You'll be very lucky to find 24 carat rings as they are not generally sold because pure gold is too soft for jewelry

en.wikipedia.org/wik…old

Banned

and for a male or female ?

Original Poster

Ok- both good questions.

They can be either male or female

...and as long as it says 24 CARAT GOLD in the description folks, I'm happy - i.e. can be plated or solid.

I was actually JUST going to post this. Strictly speaking I can't really allow, as you won't be able to buy them today if yuo wished.

Because of this, I'm going to have to make the next price deal up the winner so far...

Current winning price: £193.85

Not strictly 24 carat but some cheap "Goldrings"
5 x £7.95 + £5p&p + VAT = £44.75 :thumbsup: :whistling:

Ahh shame - you'd have been in the lead if I'd not have said 24 carat. Great thinking

I do take your point dude786, and its a point well made

However I think we're looking for single items x 5 rather than a combination in this instance..
