Well I'm knackered after all this bargain hunting, and judging. So I'm going to have a break at some point in 2010. Your challenge, today on DAY NINE, is to find the CHEAPEST price for NINE NIGHTS in LAS VEGAS. Transport should be included in the total (but not as 1/2 of the night stays!) and you must go from LONDON, UK. We're looking for NINE NIGHTS STAY in HOTELS in LAS VEGAS at any time in 2010!.

This challenge finishes at 11.59pm on Monday 21st December. CHEAPEST WINS!! Good luck!!!

*******************************

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!

If you're using a PC, you can press PRINT SCREEN, and then copy and save that image - then upload.

Or if using a MAC use a proprietary bit of software to take the screenshot.

There's an upload button at the top of the edit tools here in HUKD once you've saved the pic.

Hope this helps

I've done a screen print and can paste it onto a word document but won't let me paste on here:oops:

Save it as an IMAGE (jpg, gif etc), and then upload that here..

Saving it as a jpeg etc seems to be my problem. Only appears to let me save as word document
