I think only a mod can help, my FS thread has been expired and locked and I have no reason why, I followed all the rules etc: hotukdeals.com/ite…d=1
I'd just like to know why or get it re-opened.
Thanks for asking though :thumbsup:

I know they have that rule but the thing is it wasn't free. I have paid £152 and in 6 weeks I'll get a rebate of £130 so it was not free.

'I got this as part of the Apple education rebate deal when purchasing an Apple Mac computer'
theres your problem
profiterring

thats what it will be, and probably whoever locked it will probs have been checking out with another mod and maybe forgt to come back to it, although thought freebies where allowed now

Thy had to buy the Mac to get it, so wasn't free :thinking:

so technically then you can't sell it over £22 +postage then

I think the mod who locked the thread could put a brief comment why its locked, its just a bit of courtesy.

The thing is though that it is discounted and not free so I thought it would be excluded from that rule - I paid £152 up front and get £130 back in 6 weeks time.
I think I need my lovely mod to come and help me.....pleeaasseee......
I was probably being too honest for my own good like normal.

Now you won't be allowed to sell as you will be selling for more than you paid...

I would take it straight to ebay rather than here imho

thats profiterring though , your technically only paying £22 for the ipod touch therefore you can only sell it for this

mobile phones that you get free with a contract can be sold, also free gifts you get with a contract can now be sold, so whats the difference?

Ah, thanks everyone for helping and for helping explaining it. I should have kept my mouth closed (or fingers from typing) about it but it seems only right I am fully honest. It seems like a bizzare rule which will encourage people to keep truths to themselves. Crazy!
Guess I'll be off to eBay tomorrow or Sunday then to sell it, shame.

I don't see one, but I didn't make up the rules (sadly).
The price of the ipod touch was also made with the Macbook I purchased, so the total for te two was over £1,500, in my opinion the rebate was linked to both items and therefore not profiteering, but that's just my opinion.

Thanks, I'll have a look and see what they go for over on eBay, can't think of where else to sell it, but I would like a little more than CEX are offering though as it was £152 from Apple, they are 10% off at Argos at the mo so £132 and so £91 seems a bit cheap. Any ideas?

Hi sickly sweet, I've just checked in to this for you with the Team and unfortunately it was closed earlier as it's classed as a breach of the profiteering rule. Apologies that the thread wasn't updated at the time but I will add a post in there for you now. Thanks again.

But one could say why did you buy the ipod touch in the first place if you were just going to sell it on here ?

I bought it for my brother who it turns out got one anyway on the same day it arrived. I would understand if I had literally paid £22 for it, but it was part of a whole package worth £1,500 which included the purchase of a computer, and as sassie pointed out people put their contract phones and their contract freebies on the FS/FT board all the time, which is no different in my eyes. Anyway, nothing I can do about it, I have got to follow the rules, but don't have to agree with them or like them.

I can only hope, I hate eBay these days, full of scammers. It was part of a package deal, this is my only hope for redemption and un-locking, but I guess it's not worth pushing.

Thanks for sticking up for me :thumbsup:
I just think that having a rule which encourages people to leave out facts or stopping people from telling the truth is silly, I have the invoice from Apple so could have just said I purchased it directly from them and nothing more but thought people would like to/should know where it came from and why I'm selling it, plus why the sticker is missing.
It was a package purchase so the price is combined with the computer, but I feel like a broken record now so I'm not going to say it again, I'm probably fighting a losing battle and boring people.
Repped as many as I can today for helping, but I ran out though half way though, will do the rest tomorrow if this thread is still here.

it really pees me off when i see this happening, and then the mods wonder why they get grief, you are not doing anything that other members openly do, except most sell new "upgrade phones" every few months, must have a great deal on contracts somehwere as far as i know the minimum is 12 month contract, then the others who seel laptop and computers by the handful, etc,etc

and i would be asking the team to explain to you what the difference is, if nothing it will keep them busy whilst trying to come up with something

actually, now that you have mentioned the sale of upgrades, you are right! Mods need to clear this up.
