Deals of the Year 2018 - Are you in the list?

222
Refreshed 7th Feb (Posted 7th Feb)
We had a few emails from users (and PEP users) asking for the hottest deals of 2018, so I thought I'd list a few stats from some of our biggest categories

I looked at two community focus points, one being the votes generated and the other the comments within the threads then mapped the results to our new categories

So here you are - amazing work if your deal made it onto one of these lists!

Special mention to @Wolfout@stevey_p7@reindeer333@square72@trick23 for getting some of the hottest threads of 2018

and @kadooosh@madmaggs@utdminiman1997@Frank30uk@deanos for getting some of the most commented threads of 2018

We'll sort each of you a thank-you present including an Amazon gift card, a hoodie, a Flamedeer and some merch - will PM you all shortly to get your info and get your prizes sent out!

I'd like to award my prize to daffers as my thread wouldn't have existed without her.

Unless it's any good, obviously. In which case I'm keeping it for myself.
Congratulations everyone

I’d like to also mention The Great Big Tuesday night pub quiz thread - in which Shabbird (mainly) and co do an excellent job entertaining us
Amazing work to all those who take time to post whether that be a deal, discussion or just join in on threads, regardless if in the top XX or not

It really is appreciated! I, for one, have saved a ton of cash, although i've spent a lot also....

Big thank you!

OMG thank you so much! if anyone followed that thread in amongst all the comments I mentioned that I had a horrible time in December and over Xmas. It really cheered me up that so many people got them and had it honoured and it's still getting comments over a month on.
@Mrswitch big thanks to you especially for all your hard work I'm typing all this on my excellent mi A2 lite after all your posts I'm not going back to Samsung any time soon.

Great stuff, xiaomi are the way forward, or so I've heard
HUKD Gaming Community and Discussion has just turned one years old so really cool we got a mention in here

Hopefully the second year can be even better so if you don't know about us please stop by and consider subscribing to be updated on new comments. Although I am the OP the place is nothing to do with me and belongs to everyone the community. Share news stories, post pictures and videos or discuss anything gaming related. Everyone is welcome!

Am I in 😬

@daffers deserves it. You only started that thread because you were too tight to send her flowers.

Well done Deek. Well deserved.

I’m a winner! Yay


About time too.

Although I would have said you were a winner after you PM’d those discounts codes out to anyone and everyone on request.
Awesome. Has this been done before?
I'm honoured to have won this prize, and for a thread that was for Just Eat codes! Thanks so much to @chimp14uk for the initial suggestion of the thread here and to all the regulars who give away and request codes there!

I never imagined in 2016 when I joined that HUKD would change my life in so many ways, so to be here winning a prize after just 116 deals/discussions is amazing! I spent over 13 hours of my week on HUKD this week, and every week it's more or less the same regardless of holidays or how busy I am. I just can't stay off!

Looks like I made 2 HUKD WhatsApp messages in 1 day too, never happened before so I'm even more happy now!

Oooh how exciting, thank you @juliet_bravo and the team at HUKD!

As it is you won twice, do you get 2 prizes? Wonder what you are going to do with 2 Flamedeer if you get that, I'd have no idea. My Flamedeer and Mi Community box are both on display next to each other

Not sure why it's got the added thingymagig when I edited...wouldn't mind, I've only just found out how to edit a reply
Well done on those winners


I do hope @Mrswitch@jamie015 and @deeky get something, they put a lot into the site and have been so generous with advice...also, I've previously won something off of deeky and jamie
