people selling HUKD codes on eBay!

Found 24th Nov 2007
I was annoyed to discover that after i had posted a deal for 10% off at Miss Selfridge on here, someone the day after then put an ad on eBay saying they had a code for 10% at Miss Selfridge which they would email them for £1.49.

I know people are trying to make money but people who post deals on here are generally being nice, they have found an offer which they think will be of use and then post it. But for someone to look on here, see the codes and then sell them i think is a bit cheeky really!

Some would say they are just using their brains and selling codes to people who cant be bothered looking for the codes on the internet i suppose. But i was just annoyed that these people are making money from the kindness of the community on here.

Okay rant over now!!! Just wanted to get that off my chest! xxx

Lol, name and shame the seller

I'm with you on this one - this sort of behaviour will only encourage people to keep the offers & codes to themselves.

That's the thing with ebay.....there are plenty of folk out to make a quick buck(who can blame 'em really) whilst there are plenty of folk dumb enough to purchase this sort of thing:roll:

Whilst there are enough people to think that ebay is the be all and end all of bargains there will always be people out there to exploit it.

My mum sells loads of carp on there,she even sold the most hideous looking,tacky,2 token bingo prize.......a challenge from a friend who said no-one would buy it.Challenge set and she even explained the challenge in the product description........and yes,someone did buy it,sold for a fiver!:whistling:

Hyprocrisy,

You posted the voucher which was a 'student only' code for all to use.

So it's okay for you to provide a source for people to abuse the system. :?

But im not making money from doing this which is what i was getting at when i had my little rant. I posted the deal as i thought it would help other people, not to make money.

Im actually a student so its fine for me to use, and i did mention that it was for students but seems to be letting everyone use. Obviously other people are finding it useful as its been voted hot but its the fact that people are using peoples willingness to share info on here to gain money thats annoying as other people have agreed.

As long as you were just tipping people how they should be able to abuse the system(Like your mother) then that's okay then. :thumbsup:

So with it being voted 'HOT', I suppose that is justification enough.

I don't suppose the person on ebay could've got it from another source?

Let he who is without sin cast the 1st stone.

I can't believe people are selling reservations codes for argos for 5 pounds on ebay for the high school musical wii game .When if its oos they can order it in anyway now .

i have seen ebay sellers sell codes for ages.

Yeah. HUKD doesn't "own" the codes at the end of the day and we're not the only site to offer them.
