Hi - just wanted to say hello again after about three hours downtime. This was due to the Amazon Web Services outages across the UK - and we are taking it very personally for ruining our mornings!

Thanks for your patience, and welcome back!

I heard the site broke because someone posted an Amazon deal without stating +£4.99 non prime
Had a nice break actually, cut the grass, had a cup of coffee, had a bath, had a shower (by that I mean we went for a walk ☔)

Welcome back
3 hours?? seemed like a lifetime!

2.5 hours to get hold of support. "Have you tried rebooting it"
Felt like forever
Shows how addicted I am to this app

Could we get a badge for this experience

Right, @Dan, this is completely and utterly unacceptable, as a fellow hotukdealer who is addicted to hotukdeals. The amount of times I opened the app and saw the maintenance message! I demand you to buy me 100 packs of 24 Pepsi Max cans as compensation, with immediate effect.

Just kidding... about it being unacceptable. Downtime is acceptable. I still want my Pepsi Max

To be fair, us staff probably got the best end of it. The site being down meant we just had to drink tea while pressing F5 and messaging our clever colleagues in IT, whereas most of you guys had to stop browsing and do some real work

I was in KFC trying to post a discussion about how KFC are giving forks for ice cream but hotukdeals was down, but then I realized it's a spork. £1.98 for a popcorn chicken snackbox, Milky Bar Krushems, sundae and Pepsi Max though

So when can I expect my delivery of Pepsi Max due to the inconvenience of hotukdeals being down?

That was my line of thinking. Will be discussing this matter with my therapist
I saved at least £100.
Glad you're back. Many, many Diazepam kept me calm whilst waiting...

I thought the mod in charge of the on/off switch was banned for allowing non serious comments on a lingerie deal

Was wondering when HUKD would be back up...phew, good to have you back, guys
I was in the back of nowhere waving a mobile about in the lashing rain and swearing at it for repeatedly failing to send a reply to a Hotuk thread. Little did I know. lol

Apologies Smarty network, I take it all back
I'm abroad and thought my roaming data had died on me. "Network error" whenever I tried to refresh HUKD.
I'm on a sunlounger in Greece, but still checking for Amazon glitches.

I saved myself a fortune by not being able to visit here for 3 hours. Thanks Amazon! :-)
