Inlight of the shocking way that WE have been treated recently by these companies failing to honour deals and cancelling. I propose that ALL deals by these companies are boycotted or voted cold as they will probably never be honoured anyway.
Examples being:

hotukdeals.com/for…265

hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…del
Strangley out of stock

hotukdeals.com/ite…77-

hotukdeals.com/ite…e=2

IF you use their codes they have a get out in the T & C's to charge you FULL price when they choose:

internetretailing.net/new…ers

news.bbc.co.uk/2/h…stm

seems like a decent idea to me.

If they benefit from extra custom and then try to decline the offers, then it is of their own making

While I don't agree with what these companies do, you do realise it's within their rights?

The majority of the vouchers on this site, are intended for specific people (employees of certain places/customers who haven't shoped recently etc) and 9 times out of 10 you are not meant to use them.

Has anyone here read the disclaimer on each and every voucher posted on this site?

Like anything, stop shopping there/buying their products etc etc. But please can people stop moaning like they have been hard done by! You know the rules, you play the game and sometimes you lose. That's life!

u got my backing!

I have used the vouchers in the past & recently, never had any problems with them either. However i do read the T & Cs, I also order from catalogues & then immediately close my account after purchase, maintaining my right to use codes for new customers.

If you are going to be a savvy customer then you need to learn to play by & abide by the rules.:whistling: This is not a dig at anyone, just my observation.

If you have a problem with any of the catalogue companies & think you have a strong enough case take them to civil court for your money or get TS to act on your behalf to start criminal proceedings against them under the DSR.

Firstly - WHO expired this thread?

Second. I'm sure that most people on here will pay lip service to this idea until that special bargain comes along and then go ahead and order, regardless.

It seems to be a fact of life these days that most of us are selfish - out for ourselves only!

An offer comes up for an item that is going to make my two lovely little Grandchildren beam with joy, is going to get ordered, even at the risk of not getting it.

Many of the offers that arise are often mistakes but it doesn't stop some plank from ringing the Company to order, ensuring themselves of the offer but alerting the Company in question, thereby stopping everyone else from gaining the same advantage.

Honestly, in view of these facts, what hope do you have in getting full & proper support.

to share deals... for the benefit of other people?!?!


If only, have you seen the state of most "deals"? It's nothing but people whoring for "heat & rep", and when people vote it cold they start crying and asking people to rep them anyway.

A lot of people seem to post stuff to inflate their ego.

O.k. Perhaps I should have said SOME.

There are more 'Takers' on this site than 'Givers' by far.

A small minority here provide for the vast majority that take advantage of the deals. That is, of course, a fact of life.

And those 'Takers' will steam in regardless of the consequences of their actions.

Ha Ha. I had to laugh.
Another site (MSE) actually has a 'THANKS' button and you look and see what some peeps do to boost their 'Thanks'.

Moved to misc forum. Please do not post things as deals that are clearly not a deal in and of itself.
