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!

I have a feeling I missed something here


There was a joke that Frank was handing out discount codes on a deal and he was swamped with PMs from others asking for a code when the deal blew up.

Well done fern xx
Just noticed this thread,
Neat consolidation.(unicorn)
Kudos to winners.

Versatile range, little was my search/need level & discovered more here. Lots added to my “saved list”. Amazed on seeing what’s going on.

Keep Rocking.(y)

Congrats to the community. I think this is the community who is the winner and mostly congrats to the top ones in this community who’ve been selected. :)Well done.

You are talking about the item of clothing yeah?

Annoying you’re.

Joking!
Surprisingly I only purchased from two of the deals

I got that but I missed the "legendary/ glitch" deals which often only happen before the heat reaches 100. Last time the WA message contains just that but now 99.99% contains the boring stuff
Big congratulations to all the Leg ends Legends on the HUKD 2018 lists, well done for all you hard work

There are also, a massive amount of 1 or 2 time deal posters, that have stayed over the last year, posted a few more and helped to build the community up, with some not so hot 5000+ deal hotness deals, that give the everyday shoppers, with not much of budget, a way to save tons of money, on their weekly//monthly family or presents for loved ones shopping!

Which is the WHOLE point of the site!

Fab BIG data compiling @juliet_bravo thanks for sharing it
My deal is on the list didn't expect it, thank you very much HUKD Team and all community members.

I thought Illusionary would of been on that list, seeing as they have spent a great deal of time giving codes away. The dedication alone..

Example thread hotukdeals.com/dis…008

Anyhow, well done to everybody.

As those are weekly threads, they haven't individually racked up more comments than any of the top 5 in the OP. @Illusionary puts a lot of work into their thread which is very much appreciated by loads of HUKD'ers but it would only be counted if all in 1 thread, which would make it harder to tally votes.
As a little celebration of my inclusion as Thread Of The Year winner for my Just Eat Trading Thread, I decided to give out a little prize. The first person who shared one of their codes would win a £1 Amazon gift card, but I didn't reveal this until the trade was complete and the code was redeemed by another member. The winner was @krazysaj and has already been sent their gift card, so glad to have one this but I couldn't have won this without users such as them giving out codes so they deserve it!

It was a great one.
Have you managed to grab this deal? I was second in posting but I got 110 degree and later was removed as duplicate. I bought one after posting which had screen problem then sold it for £220.
What about the S9+/S9 1month contract glitches at £535 and £400 or something just a month or 2 after release?
Well done everyone, it’s much deserved

Yes I was lucky to get one of the phones. I sold it on straight away for £330 cash locally, so was well happy. Made £300, great considering it was just after Xmas
Not sure how the GHD Error continues to get any credibility - it never worked and nobody got the deal
Juliet bravo.
Is that meant to be pronounced in muffled tones?
If so:
Made it
