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

    If HOTUKDEALS isn't 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. But not necessarily today!! Today its all about the detail and your reasons for picking your deal! Your deal 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the new, non-refurb winner whose deal will be given precedence as there is a big chance that the refurb item will be withdrawn or made out of stock over a short period of time.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 10PM (NOTICE - A BIT LATER FOR OUR LAST DAY!) 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. TODAY ONLY - YOUR VIEWS ON OTHER PEOPLE'S DEALS WILL BE TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION - AS WE AS, OF COURSE, HOW YOU SELL YOUR DEAL TO THE REST OF US!

    Items to be searched for each day will be broad rather than specific (moreso today than any other!) - 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 NOT after the cheapest price here TODAY. 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 TWELVE - after this there's nothing, nada, nichts . And you'll be wanting DAY TWELVE'S QUEST. So here it is:

    MONEY, COST, AND VALUE IS IRRELEVANT TODAY. RATHER THAN FIND THE CHEAPEST ITEM WE"RE LOOKING FOR YOUR IDEAL, PERFECT CHRISTMAS PRESENT TO YOURSELF FROM AN ONLINE SOURCE. ARGUE YOUR CASE - TELL US WHY YOU'D PICK IT, AND WE'LL DISCUSS IT. THE WINNER WILL BE THE PERSON WITH THE MOST INVENTIVE, UNIQUE, AND GOOD DEAL - can't say anything more subjective than that, eh?

    You'll have until 10pm tonight (later than usual!) to post your deal. Any entries placed after that time wont be taken into consideration.

    All the very best of luck, and merry Christmas!

    zarguio (x)
