Yes, I did a Deal about this previously here back in June, when it was £60, but the price went up again. Doesn't manually wind or hack, but apparently has great lume and is a "… Read more

It's been mentioned on other threads (and the last one I did about this watch, which I linked to) that you should avoid DHL for duty and pay extra for Royal Mail. I can't comment personally as I've not bought from Creation.


Purchased recently from these DHL making good living off duty collection charges .if you keep eye on Amazon you will end up getting watch for very similar price .This charges definitely spoil the experience.


Not sure, mate. I assume it would go back to the seller. However in my case DHL delivered the package and then sent me the invoice a few days later.


There's a few Last One(s) on Creation, saw this before I went to bed last night http://www.creationwatches.com/products/citizen-chronograph-50/citizen-chronograph-quartz-an3620-51e-mens-watch-12928.html £64 Mentioned it here.

I use this one several times every day i've had it for over a year now - it says it can do upto 10 but i've done 12/13 pages docs before https://www.amazon.co.uk/Harinacs-Japanese-Stapleless-Stapler-SLN-MSH110D/dp/B00F2YSDYY/ref=sr_1_4?s=officeproduct&ie=UTF8&qid=1538407336&sr=1-4&keywords=japanese+stapler Great quality and it gives you the chance to complain about the millions of pounds your company wastes on staples (yes i'm a nerd)


This stapler is amazing, only complaint, it makes a hole in the paper. Very clever how it does what it does.


Finally something which works on circular documents!


It's a Stapler without staples


I saw that, but how many of those 'advantages' have any relevance to home users, as against the two big disadvantages: It leaves a hole in the paper It doesn't provide a secure fixing that doesn't just pull apart.

Anyone got those 5% off Dragon Quest XI voucher they don't need? I am happy to take it off you! :D


you know, you could buy them, redeem them, but don't install them? (y)


I live on military land and BT deems it not financially viable to install fibre so I’m on 7Mbps down and 0.7Mbps up. I assume there is simply no way for me to get FFXV?!


Those are some really good deals just a shame I'm needing a new hard drive as no space for anything and all my drives are full at the moment :(

Things are so over priced in the Japan centre. If you went else where then you could buy your own noodles with the change left over from the shopping. I can understand it if you were buying products that were only available in the japan centre. Check out some of the chinese/korean supermarkets first before going there.

Looking for a lime green version from Japan. Any suggestions where I can get one for a good price please.


Fantastic console to own. I have the blue imported from Japan in may this year. Hacked with H-Encore. 256GB micro sd (sd2vita). Works perfect. Holds all my ps1,PSP and vita games. Got around 18gb left, so going to fill the rest today lol


Homebrew scene is great atm with ports being released: Half-life Return to castle wolfenstein Quake 3 Thanks to hardware acceleration being released this year (vitaGL) the scene is really taking off. Although I think it is coming to come to a stage where the developers are going to jump onto the switch homebrew scene (once hardware accerlation is released from a dev)

As a shenmue super fan, got this from Amazon Japan . Supposedly comes with a extra poster. I really wanted a special edition. it's pricey,but honestly ,it's the only game ill ever buy a special edition from, so what the heck. Im putting my money where my mouth is, and funding Sega to continue with the franchise


There is a chance you might get a £10+ handling fee from royal mail once it has been delivered


I just went through the paypal payment and payed for standard postage. I think it was about fifty pounds in total


To most this isn't a good deal, as with customs fees etc. this jumps to like £65, but for a Shenmue fan like me I had to jump on it.


Any fees calculated at checkout

This is only sensible if you think it could be a pricing error. No idea why people post obvious pricing errors on here as all you're doing is ensuring that it will definitely get flagged up and cancelled.

As in the pic so fresh cherries, a couple of batons of freshly chopped ginger, a wedge of lime squeezed on to the ice before you lob it in. You can obviously use whatever tonic floats your boat but I found the Fever Tree clementine and cinnamon complimented it best but unfortunately it's a seasonal one they only release around Christmas time so there's very little chance of sourcing any at the minute.


What would you suggest having it with?


Ridiculously gorgeous gin that needs to be complimented with the appropriate mixology, not something the Bombay Sapphire mass-if will be able to get their heads round but then again there's no accounting for taste I suppose (skeptical) Available at this price from your local Waitrose at the moment by the way (y)


You beat me to it! I'm sure it'll stream anything if you drink enough of it. :D


Anybody know where I can get some "craft" tonic, "craft" lemon and "craft" ice to go with this. Oh and I'd better get a "craft" glass to drink it from.


Thailand is closer to Japan ;)


What others have you tried out of interest? How's it taste and look?


currently unavailable


Mines arrived today , not that great compared to others I have tried. But can't argue about price. As the others where more expensive.


Not bad at all I paid 19 quid for two 50g jars almost two years ago. The matcha was fine. A bit bland perhaps. I don't think it was as good as the Vitalife matcha I had. Not organic though. Currently using The Tea Makers of London ceremonial grade matcha: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ceremonial-Japanese-Matcha-Tea-Powder100g/dp/B00DPNIXFI/ Which I received as a gift. I've found their normal teas poor (I've tried their Jasmine and Genmaicha), but the matcha is good. Bit more vibrant and more flavour. It's a deeper colour than both the Vitalife and PureChimp - especially the latter I think. Whatever you do, don't get Sevenhills matcha. It's junk - very dull and hay like. You want a vibrant green, no hint of brown or yelllow colour. Best and most affordable was buying Ippodo matcha in Japan. All grades tasted great. When I asked about grades they just said the cheaper ones were more bitter, not lower quality. Bitterness can be nice. I couldn't taste the difference between their most expensive and second most, so bought mostly the second most expensive I think. Might look into getting it delivered to the UK actually. Shame about the value of sterling. If you want quality I'd try here: https://www.ochaandco.com/ Their genmaicha is fantastic. Direct from japan - arrives quickly though.

Why is this still live when it appears no-one has managed to find a way to buy at this price?


Don't usually play video games but I play this almost everyday. It's great online single player, it's great playing against my wife and it's great to take to family events on a small projector. Highly recommend it.


Nevermind anymore, I don't think anyone managed to get this


^^^ Doesn't work anymore. Tried all kinds of cards including Revolut, nothing works. I feel this should be expired to save people wasting an hour of their life trying to buy it.


Credit, debit or prepaid; cards outside of Japan do not work. It has been confirmed that the only methods that work are Japanese gift cards or a Japanese PayPal.

I did see some (on reddit I think) saying that if you really want a watch but want to haggle a little wriggle-room, you could try Live Chat. No idea if it will work, but worth a bash if you have time.


Yep my 5's on there, down to £100 (y) Good selection and cracking prices on some

Far as I'm aware you've always been able to unfollow things on your news feed. I've had my switch a year. Usually you can do it by clicking on the news you've no interest in and press the + button and click unfollow. Or go into system settings and news feed channels...select the ones you wish to unfollow


is this an option now as it didn't used to be when I had my first console.


Keep your Japanese account but unsubscribe from the Japanese Nintendo feed. Simple.

Different game for Games With Gold Japan this month and has been out in that region before, just have read Japanese (or use translate) to download.
Get dealGet deal

I thought as much as those were the only 2 games that were listed, although I did wonder whether I was doing something wrong as this is the first time I've looked to download via the GWG. Thanks, EQL.


It looks like they changed things over and are only listing two games (Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia and Splosion Man): https://www.xbox.com/ja-JP/live/games-with-gold?xr=shellnav It'll probably be back, keep an eye out in future months. WIkipedia changes seem to suggest it happened around/before the 21st. Expire this?


Hi EQL, can you advise whether Slime Rancher is still available to download free with Xbox live please? When accessing the Japanese store it's showing as requiring payment to purchase the game. Am I doing something wrong? Many thanks.


Thanks for the reminder. Slime Rancher is available 16th June to the 30th June as a replacement for the Games with Gold freebie Smite Gold Bundle (in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Games_with_Gold_games#Xbox_One Lego Indiana Jones 2 is now also available free with GWG. Slime Rancher was free with GWG in Aug 2017 (and via Japan and Taiwan in Oct 2017).

Matcha (Camellia Sinensis grown in shade) for caffeine and taste, Sencha (Camellia Sinensis grown in full sun) for antioxidants. Is that not true?


£25kg for £10 here


Looks like sam_of_london has been put on the naughty step and this deal has been expired. I was maybe going to vote hot on it as well. Maybe. Oh well.


I've tried https://www.borntea.com/. Not the same tea as this deal but still quality & cheaper. Still expensive though.


My comment was tongue in cheek... (flirt)
