Has HUKD ever made you buy something that you wouldn't have otherwise (like something you didn't need or thought of getting) simply because you thought it was a 'hot deal'?

errrr yeah! All the time:oops:

ummm yeh to much

yip sure does

definitely..... i have bought many a times without thinking .....

yup, recent examples include a fujitsu monitor and an iPhone...don't regret either purchase but both were impulse buys purely because of hduk

yeah all the time.... usually with stuff i dont need.

Not at all...

A bargain is only a bargain if you were looking for it already...

Otherwise it's just a waste of money...

I only buy the deals that benefit me. Normally xbox 360 games or DVD's stuff like that. I also dont mind the odd freebie now and then! :thumbsup:

couldn't agree more

No, I've never bought anything flagged up on here just because it was cheap - only if it's something I was looking for or actually want.

I always imagine that a lot of HUKDers houses are just full of rubbish gadgets and look like Poundstretcher - Home Edition. :giggle:

Not mine! I love everything ive bought and use it all but i got a ps3 just cause it was a good price and not because i was looking for one. Ive also got tonnes of dvds and games that ive bought because they were cheap and ended up selling on because they arent my kind of thing. Ive bought an xbox360 hd dvd drive even though i dont have an xbox360 - but i am gonna buy one now! lol:oops:

Yeah I used to be awful :oops: - but this year i've calmed down alot with the old impulse buying. I worked out roughly how much i'd been spending and looked (especially at things for the kids) that had been used once or twice and that was enough for me :w00t:.

Though i don't buy things...

I have found myself filling in forms for freebies for my wife...

Filling in entry forms for comps etc etc...

Yes... every day. I am £317,000 in debt since finding this site. Must stop, must stop.

Yeah...Perfect example is when I bought one of those glow bears from amazon (20 year old male :p) what the hell was I thinking.

yes, me too! Although I have been much better recently, but probably because I spend more time in Misc than deals, its much better for my bank balance!

Yeah, I'm mostly on Misc too, good for me.

ummmm yeah ... got to go might miss something !

o god, stop spending

yes but i am better than i used to be

I only buy stuff that I want or need, can't see the point of buying stuff I don't want just because it's cheap.

Yes, but i do restrain myself, worse if youve had a few to drink and then come on ere or on ebay!

All the time! although i only buy things i want but not really in need of yet and when i get round to using them they are even cheeper!

Yeah I do this all the time! But then its when you didn't buy it that you need sooner than you think and the deal has expired!

oh yes!

no, but i order almost every freebie that is on the freebie section!!
