Hello from a new Aussie import

Found 23rd JulEdited by:"smellytaco"
Hi everyone!

Can't believe it too me so long, but I have finally found this site! Wife and I moved here about nine months ago from Australia to work and travel. I'm a regular lurker on OzBargain back home but haven't been able to find my fix in the UK until now (goodbye any last semblance of productivity). What do I need to know about the community here? What are the Eneloops of the hotukdeals community? What memes do I need to catch up on? What deals should I already know about but because I'm an idiot still don't?

EDIT: Wow 'morning everyone. Was not expecting this thread to get as much traction as it did. Thanks for the tips, gifs and welcomes. I'll do my best to find and post good deals and contribute to this awesome community

I don't mean to nitpick at your 'nip pick', but it is nitpick, not 'nip pick'. Please forgive me.

trolling abounds particularly from people setting up additional accounts with a fabricated cover story.

Welcome
Hello and welcome to HUKD!

There are quite a few deals that are well known, you'll be hearing quite a lot about HUKD 'students' who sign up to a cheap online course to get a NUS extra card, giving access to Amazon Student Prime.

You'll also hear regularly about Wuntu (Three Mobile rewards app) which you can access by ordering a free SIM card.

There are many more, but nothing that springs to mind immediately. If you have any questions or need any help around the site, I'm happy to help

G'day mate! Eneloops are well regarded here too
MEERKAT MOVIES !! (1 year of weekly 2for1 cinema tickets when you buy anything through comparethemarket.com [~£1/£2] )

Glad you've found a replacement for your bargain hunting , quite a friendly bunch in the main here . Get started on posting your deals , cause you don't want to miss out on deekys Christmas competition!Oh and be prepared to down tools at work in December if you are coming along for the flamedeer catching .

Pretty much everything above covers what you need to know. One thing I will add though, is that it’s good to give what you take (so posting deals when you’ve been able to use one). It just offers you a backup (as such) if you criticise a deal and don’t have any posted yourself, as some people will argue back with that.

Also, when you post a deal make sure it’s not already posted or there’s a similar one that’s cheaper/better. Chances are that if there is, your deal will go cold.

Hello and welcome! At least you have some resemblance to Aussie weather to ease your transition too!

Hello and welcome

One tip is that the assassins creed unity Xbox 1 for 99p from cdkeys will go cold as it’s been posted heaps before and been as little as 0.49p

It was international.
Oh and no matter how good a deal or freebie you post they’ll always been someone come along and nip pick at any tiny detail just for the sale of it. These are usually people who have never bothered to post deals.

It does get a bit tiresome sadly

Don't make any attempt to differentiate between "your" and "you're".
A lot of users are intellectually challenged and have difficulty with proper usage.

Shopmium are great, been using them for a few years now - great customer service and there is no need to cash out as they pay you the full money by PayPal within a couple of days of scanning the item/submitting the receipt.

Shopmium are banned? Why?

I had GreenJinn a few months back but offers were very limited, now I heard they've introduced Tesco I might reinstall it.

If you're after a SIM card, you can get a Three Rewards Data SIM which gets 200MB per month, and has 3-2-1 rates (3p/min, 2p/text, 1p/MB)
