£250,000 of Amazon vouchers. Although they would already be in voucher form, I could entertain myself for days.

Firstly i would get a couple of the Samsung 70" LCD t v's - one for the living room & one for the garden ( £46,000 ) . I would then buy a Diamond Luxury Hot Tub & Gazebo ( £5,000 ) which i would put in the back garden facing my outdoor T V. Next would be a 6x12 Marquee ( £760 ) to store the T V in when not watching it. Janssens Victorian 820 Greenhouse ( £4,000 ) is the next item i would snap up - may as well make the whole garden look good - speaking of which the Honda HRH536QX Lawn Mower would make light work of my lawn at just ( £1,200 ) . Moving indoors i would love The Regency Illuminated Globe ( £850 ) to grace my kitchen along with Historic Maps of Bahrain, 1817-1970 ( £1,500 ) which would be very helpful planning my next holiday i'm sure. The holiday couldn't happen without Ambassador Carry On Suitcase ( £250 ) & a nice new watch Audemars Piguet, Gents Edward Piguet Perpetual Calendar ( £22,000 ) & of course some light reading for the flight Nissan Custom Atcchallenge.Com - a snip at just ( £70,000 ) . Not being a greedy person i would donate the rest of the vouchers to charity..

I would buy:
1 Port Oc192C/Stm64C Pos (£70,301.91)
Jellybean Girls Beach Mule Sandals - Red/White (95p)
08 Super Six SRAM RED Bike (£4,699.99)
Sigg Bottle - Breast Cancer Charity Campaign 0.75Lt (£15.83 ) x 11,054 for my bike and charity!

I'd buy as many wii's as were in stock and could afford within budget.
Give them to hospitals and schools and try to help kids get fit and have some fun and social interaction too

id sell them on ebay and get the cash to clear my debts and buy a new house outright (bigger house then the one ive got already) get married and take the other half to america for our honeymoon, id also donate some to cancer research, had 2 people close to me pass away through this illness in the last 4 months

shurrrruuuup, don't tell anyone. I thought you and i had a deal :oops:

If I had that kind of money to spend I would not go on Amazon, I would donate it to charity or ask them what they want and just buy them it!! I would not splash out for the sake of it!!

If I had £250000 worth of vouchers I would know doubt have to give some of them away as I couldn't possibly spend all that money on Amazon.

But me being me I would be inclined to put my business head on and sell them for cash, then buy a couple of flats to start up my Property Developing business

1.5million of the snap together foam aeroplanes (15p each)... each delivered individually by amazon prime causing amazon to lose millions. Muahaha. I'd keep the postie in a job for years.

As I am expecting a baby I would kit out the whole babies room with new stuff, equipment etc and buy a Quinny Buzz pram.
Also add garden furniture, heater, gazebo, firepit and lots of lighting
Buy every new dvd available
50" Sony TV to go with it
Buy all the up and coming Xmas presents and store them in the loft
Treat myself to diamonds
A couple of TAG watches (his and hers) also one for my Dad
A woman can never have enough shoes so i'd splash out big time there....
Couple of bikes for keeping fit after the birth and training equipment
Chasseur Cast Iron pots (5 of them)
Kit out my kitchen with a lot of Alessi items
Couple of new laptops and a home PC
Lots of Wii games and PS3 games
Garden tools, lawn cutter etc
Top of the range digital camera x 3

Wow my list is big but i bet it hasn't reached £100k never mind £250k. To be honest I'd let my Mum and Dad have their pick too, similar to the above and also my brother. It would be a great splash out time and would feel totally spoilt....

I would buy some heavy artillery and send it to Africa so they can hurry up the process of killing each other.

Do amazon sell them?

Banned

no. but i would selll the vouchers first...

I would buy a lot of wii accessories and games - that would be about a grand gone.

The remaining £249,000 I would spend on Huey Lewis & The News CDs and DVDs (there are 200 over search results so it could be possible) to really confuse the people at Amazon and possibly even get them back into the top ten. Just for kicks.

i would hire a hitman to sort martin lewis out (and all his lil mse sheep!)

Some amusing ideas.

Less than 6 hours to go!

I dont think killing my relatives will win you a prize though magicbeans. (or win you a prize!)

i would buy whatever you wanted me too;-)

Do Amazon sell life-size Gavin & JDeal "action figures"?

id equipt a local building with fitness equipment and snooker/pool and other activities, and get a few things like bikes and consoles, and raffel them off to make money for local projects.... keep all the youngins entertained, fit and happy, and most of all out of trouble. and will give the parents and adults a nice break...

Do they sell lives for kids?

to be honest, I could not tell you what I would spend £250,000.

Until you are in that situation, you dont really know, well most people wont know. We can all life a dream but when it comes to the crunch they would probably not spend it all at Amazon. Great ideas though

I think the point is "If you had £250k of unsellable amazon vouchers what would you buy?" not just if you had £250k as if it were cash (or convertable into cash) then chances are you are right - we wouldn' but £250k in wiis or charity items, but most likely buy something like a house (or a bigger house). Completely different question.

£250,000?



I could probably own Derby F.C for that but they aren't on Amazon so i would buy lots of expensive stuff that everyone wants then sell it on eBay for a comfortable profit.

250,000? Knock two zero's off and it's yours.

You're on top form tonight Tom :-D xx

bump.......cmon ppl

well I have been on the Amazon website for hours and I could not spend the £250,00 in vouchers wih them, well at the 1 times anyway. The reason being is that you would have to buy a multiply of the same items. If you went to buy the bigger items like hot tubs etc, you cannot buy direct from Amazon, they are from other suppliers.

Yes, the kids and the big kid (Daddy) would have a bash at buying all the electrical computer, handheld, cinema surrounds, TV etc. Unless you have a huge mansion to put them all you would be better to give them to child hospital / disability resources.

I dont think buying them, them selling them on it a good choice as this would be for you own financial gain.
