HUKD 12 Days of Christmas - DAY THREE

Found 14th Dec 2007
Today's winner is 'highguyuk" total price inc. postage - £2099.97


On the first day of Christmas love_a_bargain and Mike73 dealt for me: a 2Gb MP3 player
On the second day of Christmas mrmr25 dealt for me: two dozen Christmas Crackers

WELCOME TO DAY THREE OF THE HUKD TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS COMPETITION - DAY THREE!!!

If HOTUKDEALS isnt running a 12 days of Christmas this year then I'm happy to start one myself..unfortunately no amazon vouchers up for grabs - but would be fun to do a little searching nonetheless.

For each of the twelve days, HOTUKDEALS members must find the CHEAPEST GENUINE ONLINE price for a given item and post it into the given thread for that day. Your price MUST include:

1) Description of the item with title
2) Where you've seen it (HAS TO BE ONLINE!)
3) Final price as it would leave your bank account. This has to include any postage.
4) Any mention of QUIDCO, IPOINTS, MUTUALPOINTS or other cash/points back schemes off the back of the deal. Just a word on this - in the event of a tie and ONLY in the event of a tie, QUIDCO and/or others will be taken into consideration.
5) Your posting must begin 'MY ENTRY IS' so we can tell quickly that your posting is...well..an entry rather than just a comment. Ok?
6) Non UK STERLING deals are allowed. But please use xe.com as your conversion tool to £ STERLING and post an IMAGE of that conversion with your posting. The rate changes throughout the day!
7) Items should be delivered to your door. Deals where you can pick up items in-store won't count.
Unlike in last years' competition, REFURBS ARE allowed in this competition. They would be mentioned in the final posting onto the main board if appropriate (and cheaper!). However, its the new, non-refurb winner whose deal will be given precedence as there is a big chance that the refurb item will be withdrawn or made out of stock over a short period of time.
9) Be inventive, and think outside of the box

Each search day will run from 9AM UNTIL 7.30PM and results will feature at the end of that day - the winner announced then. zarguio (i.e. me, and anyone else appointed in case I get really busy! ) has the final say over the winner for each day. We'd be starting on the 12th and running until the 23rd.

Items to be searched for each day will be broad rather than specific - giving you more scope to argue your case. Posters who remember last year's competition will know what I mean. Unlike last year however, you're allowed more than one entry - as many as you like. We're after the cheapest price here. I'm not a mod so can't delete or edit postings so its up to you to tow the line

Finally, again - I'm really sorry, but there's no prize for each day as I'm poor - unless ADMIN wish to add some vouchers here?!?!?, so its just for the love of searching. If anyone wishes to contribute a prize then that would be great. I believe a chappie offered some webserver space just before the thread was pulled - or was I imagining things? Get in touch if you have something to give back to the board

Right folks - this is DAY THREE. And you'll be wanting DAY THREE'S QUEST. So that is:

FIND THE CHEAPEST ONLINE PRICE FOR THREE "FULL HD" TELEVISIONS - 40 INCHES IN SIZE OR OVER. BEYOND THAT DESCRIPTION, YOU CAN BE AS INVENTIVE AS YOU LIKE. Include postage into it, take away any vouchers (these have to be usable by anyone) and post it up on this thread, taking note of the guide above.

You'll have until 7.30pm tonight to post the cheapest price you can find on the web. Any entries placed after that time wont be taken into consideration.

All the very best of luck, and merry Christmas!

Me (x)

When you say find three, do you mean find three each? Or am I misreading something?

Original Poster

Yes, day three's quest is to find THREE of these for the cheapest price...collectively, including postage.

Yesterday's was to find two dozen crackers

The first day's was to find one MP3 player.

You see what I've done here?!

So...three Full HD TVs..the cheapest price for all three....

I assume you're taking three of those highguyuk?

Seems like I have to have 3 doesn't it!

Surely mine isn't the cheapest, others need to get involved!

Genius I say. Yeah, the first post confused me then as Highguyuk only posted one tv.

Original Poster

Haha - easily done!

So have you found a beater?

phew... what a morning. first chance ive had all day to get on here! right... 3 tvs coming up...

I haven't found one yet, it's harder than I thought!

Sorry to dampen your deal mrmr25 but the TV is HDready only...we're looking for the best price on 3 x Full HD sets Sorry....that ACTUALLY also applies to highguyuk's entry above so we don't yet have a valid entry at this point.

Looks like whatever FULL HD set you choose would be the winner so far!

Oh dear - its not....sorry this is the HD ready version.

Full HD has a resolution of 1920 x something - the HD ready ones are just 1366 x 768

In most cases it should be in the title of the deal itself - but sometimes (as in yours the_andy) it isnt. Should bloody well be for that money though

Oh dear, I'm sorry Amanda - again that's an HD ready set - not a Full HD, which is what we're looking for today....

...try again

Sorry.......I'm not too hot with my TV knowledge, its a complete minefield!

Keep up the good work Z (just realised why admin didn't set this up, they were too busy doing other things :whistling:)

Do you mean by full HD that it has to support 1080p because technically if it has an HDMI port and supports 720P/1080i it is HD as well as HD ready

Oh dear -sorry. I should have been a little clearer.

It should be Full HD in terms of the fact that it should support 1080p - the growing range of TVs do this but not every one, as we have seen.

As before, it SHOULD say either Full HD or HD ready in the title of the deal - its the Full HD we're looking for today

Yep - we have our first. Well done.

£2099.91 for three Full HD TVs is our lowest (and only, hehe) so far today. Ooh and that 2% QUIDCO back helps sweeten the deal too.

Any lower?
