Would this be the same one that Boots reckon is £149 (now £99) http://www.boots.com/en/Panasonic-ES-ST25-3-Blade-Linear-Drive-Shaver_1499529/ Similar model number HUKD post just has KS811 after ES-ST25 How can boots justify such a bloated original price (Was)?
I'm guessing they're charging it higher over on Amazon due to considering all the fees ect they have to pay to list it there? Where’s on their own site there’s none. Possibly try cancelling your order over on Amazon if it’s not already too late (i.e. it’s been dispatched)? And re-order on SEE site.
Gutted, I paid £31.87 for this yesterday. If they drop the price on Amazon I'll give them a call and hopefully they'll refund the difference. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/panasonic-es-st25-3-blade-linear-motor-electric-shaver-wet-dry-for-men-28-50-thesseshop-2273787
Impulse buy :( Hope it's good.

SSE Broadband + Phone + Talk Weekend + £60 topcashback for £144 a year£144
SSE takes a major plunge into phone & broadband. Is it any good? http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/broadband/2015/04/sse-takes-a-major-plunge-into-phone-broadband-is-it-any… Read more
Same here. I have been told I signed up to non fibre Internet and have been told to send in proof. SSE are a joke. Stick to gas and electric.
signed 3 months ago on fibre optic and still waiting for the modem to arrive, really bad service, big mistake moving from plusnet.
Is this offer still available?
Im currently on still on hold trying to get through to tech support about my fibre speeds , Ive been on hold for 40 minutes, (If I hear ancient songs like unforgetttable and youve got a friend in me any more i think ill give up). Anyway, Youtube and gmail are often unusable especially between 3pm to 9pm ie again right now, even though the speed test to other sites is ok (though half advertised speed). There have been so many problems with SSE that I just had to transfer my fathers service back to BT when they messed up the fibre transfer by not informing BT for 6 weeks of his order. My service however is fully switched so seems im stuck with it. Advise to anyone considering is dont switch, there is a good chance you will regret it.
Signed up to fibre, the top package, currently getting 1mb if lucky, switched from BT where I never got less than 40mb, and to think I thought BT were bad.

Free smart meters for Southern electric customers.
Not sure if posted before but SSE have started giving free smart meters upgrades.
free bills, free letter, free promotions, free envelope, free customer helpdesk, free CEO, free people working for you, free pens for the staff working for you, free use of toilet for the staff working for you, free office space.... how daft is this! All free for a monthly fee of ~£200.
my sister had 1 fitted n then was told she would pay monthly for the metre it was free fit but it costs on top of yr bill so be careful u get it for free after it is fitted
can you tell us something more about spying? what exactly is compromised and at what level. Really keen to know.
Why would I want a spy transmitting all of my usage? Cold as Absolute zero.
Think we will pay in the long run.Remember the so called free energy light bulbs.

76Mb fibre + line rental & weekend calls £24.50 a month £588 @ SSE£588
So I got the BT email today saying their prices are going up, and obviously started looking for better deals as it means I can cancel early. Best I can see at the moment is SSE, y… Read more
Don't do it guys was told i didn't need BT engineer call, then they connected me fine for 10 days then chopped me off. They said how could i have a connection if a BT guy didn't call! i said i plugged in my prevous Fibre routour and there box and it worked fine, 14 days with no connection as they cant just reconnect me! don't do it
If I can't get the advertised speed it gets cancelled for not meeting their side of the contract, if YouTube stutters that's unacceptable.
My uncle got this installed a few days ago, I went to his house and did about 3 hours of testing - it appears to be heavily throttled - you'll get a great result on speed testing websites but anything else no so good - even got buffering and stalls on YouTube
Yes they could in theory bring your connection down to a snail's pace - EE already do this with their 4G service -
I`m tempted, but it seems they have a traffic management and fair use policy.

I can't see any thing in the t and c that state the phone goes to two 12 month terms.
Covered already, Post #103. "Its an 18 month contract, not 24 months though, after 18 months it becomes a 6 month rolling contract. You are free to leave after 18 months, even though the prices remain discounted for 24 months. If you leave early, you aren't charged (what you'd think) £10/£12.50 per month left of the contract, but a higher non discounted rate of £22.50/£26.50 per month for a maximum of 12 months + £33 admin fee + £6.75 BT cease fee, if you leave part way through your 18 month contract Its important to make a note of the 18 month contract date, (or 18+6 - the 24 month date) because you end up on a rolling 6 month contract, in which exit fees are still potentially quite high to change broadband supplier" Reading into this a little more... Important: Remember the 'bundled' Phone Line is a rolling 12 month contract, if you do want to leave after 18 months, your 2 separate contracts phone+broadband will end up of of 'sync'. Its a common ploy also used by BTRetail, means to leave you'll end up with a heafty bill of 6 months line rental payable if you plan leave after 18months. Ofcom if you are reading this: this common ploy should be outlawed, because its just to get round the recent rule changes preventing rolling 2 year contracts, which in effect this is. The ony good thing in SSE's favour at the 2 year point is a very good time to leave, because if you stay, you remain on what is in effect a yearly contract, not a 6 monthly one. As the two 'planets' phone and broadband only come into alignment on an Annual basis to prevent exit fees. Yes, you can take the Broadband only but the price rises by £10 a month, defeating the 'bundled deal'. Also, I wonder how hard it will be to leave SSE in 18 months/24 months as they don't seem to operate within the Ofcom guidelines of switching broadband suppliers within 10 days, and also offering a 14 day cooling off period, where you can revert to your existing supplier. Given they are a new supplier and the rules have only just changed, I hope SSE are working to Ofcom guidelines by then. The offer is basically a lock-in for 2 years, even though its an 18 month contract. Still a good deal, if you can understand and keep to the rules, and no worse than BT for small print.

how is everyone's sse now? I believe I'm coming up to month 18 soon. It has been 'ok' some disconnects and it is traffic managed. Does the job for streaming though. Probably go back to plusnet when the offer ends. From what I can see there is a 6 quid charge when I switch. Am i right in assuming I could cancel after 18 monts anyways?
I think the majority did.

I went with talktalk. They take more than agreed amount. Bunch of cheats
They were OK when i had them for 8 years what they are useless at is when you do have problems and are a nightmare to deal with if the problem is less than obvious and will try and charge you for any engineer visits even if a fault is found, i was made to replace all my internal wiring get new phones and have 3 new routers after 13 engineer visits at £50 a visit (eventually refunded the engineer visits costs) they told me they would refund me my costs for phones and wiring but refused to do so after i had replaced them only to be told over 6 months later the problems underground down my street.
Have you ever had technical prblems with your phone line? because while Talk Talk are good when you have no problems they are bloody useless when you have issues and from reading the forums i am not alone in having major problems with them.
I have had a giftcard and cashback from BT in the past.
I have been with TT for over 8 years and never had a problem with their service or Fibre broadband. And at time of renewal, they always match the cheapest deal offered by competitors.

SSE(Southern Electric) 24 months FREE broadband +£12 line rental£12
SSE are offering FREE ADSL broadband +£12 line rental for 24 months,then £8 a month.Also reduced prices on Fibre broadband
Comments like that are eventually going to get you suspended or banned.
You have to have a mandatory phone line to receive the internet, do you think it flies in the window on a **** broomstick?
Hi,thanks for the number,when I rang their customer servicesthey gave me a 0345 number ,I rang them because I could not find any tech help number,i have rung there CS again today which took them about 25 minutes to answer,she said this was because of the time I was ringing, but have rang them at various times and and it is always 20 minutes plus before they answer, asked how much it will be to leave them and they say about £88 so am going to leave them, have never managed to talk to there tech support as I have given up after about 50+ minutes, shame really as I am changing my gas and electric suppliers shortly and if they had been half decent with there broadband I may have gone with them for that also.
Did you try using their 0800 number? It's 0800 975 8292, and will be free to call from mobiles.
my broadband was off for 2 days recently and it is still playing up, their broadband helpline do not answer the phone and close at 7pm,i have only used the phone to get through to there broadband help and it has cost me almost a fiver without getting through to them.

Warm Home discount for southern electric costumers on low income or ppl who receive tax credit

Does not mention tax credit in the eligibility criteria You qualify for the discount if on 12 July 2014 all of the following apply: your supplier was part of the scheme your name (or your partner’s) was on the bill you were getting the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit (even if you get Savings Credit as well
have a read of this thread https://www.hotukdeals.com/freebies/upto-140-credit-towards-your-electic-bill-eon-customers-warm-home-discount-1988728#comments
You may automatically qualify for this discount if you or your spouse/partner are the named electricity account holder and if on the 12 July 2014 you can answer YES to either of the two statements listed below; I receive the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit only (not just the State Pension) or; I receive the Guarantee Credit element and the Savings Credit element of Pension Credit

Use code SSE10. Panasonic. Good reviews. Manufacturer's five year warranty. Massive drum. Steam action. £250.90 cheaper than John Lewis. Astonishing price for 1400 spin A+++ 10kg … Read more
My husband is secretly hoping they don't pick it up like I asked them to, so he can hand me a hammer to take my temper out on it, and then he can use the drum as a fire pit.
It's been pretty grim because I have anxiety stuffs and I freak out if we have to have strangers round, so that's a lot of freaking out over the past few weeks with all these engineers XD But I gave up today. The kids volunteer up at the local stables and walked in covered head to toe in horse plop and mud and rain (one had worn her massive school coat, the joys) and the washer had just cronked yet again and it was like 'ENOUGH NOW!!!' So I guess the battle begins now for the refund! I really hope noone else has the same problem, I know it's a first world type of whinge but having no washing machine (especially when it's broken with a full load of soaking wet washing in Winter and it's Christmas and you already have a few loads from when it broke before..) is just miserable. I even paid for next day delivery from John Lewis and I never do that. I'm Yorkshire, I'm usually really tight! That's how at the end of my tether I am, haha! It really seems like all washing machines are a huge gamble. Make no wonder the earth is creaking, all these machines in landfill eh.
WOW that is horrendous!!
Finally given up. Five engineer visits for an H43 error in as many weeks, not counting the ones before this for other stuff. Last one was Friday and he replaced the entire front because of the steam function leaking. Said he found another botched leak that another engineer had tried to fix but the new front would sort it. Tried it today for the first time since the repair on Friday - H43 error - water leak detected. So I've ordered a Miele with a ten year warranty and told Panasonic I want a refund and this heap of crap collecting. It's been a bit of a bloody joke tbh, those engineers have been more times than my Mother and the washer is like Trigger's frigging broom. Not best pleased! I have a nervous twitch in my left eye now every time I hear a beeping sound.
We must have gotten the duff one! Good to hear you haven't had any problems, thanks for the update. That filter makes me swear every time it blocks - with three dogs this happens a lot. That part is the worst invention I have ever seen, I wondered if I was missing a trick but the engineer said nope, you basically just have to shove a towel under it and swear a lot.

Panasonic na-140vs4 washing machine - now 443 @ thesseshop£443
high spec washing machine with inverter drive and steam. 10kg. 5 year warranty. a+++ rating. free delivery. Shared Via The HUKD App For Android.
We bought a Panasonic washing machine about a year ago - to replace a very good Bosch. But the repair required was too expensive and we decided to get a new machine. I did a fair bit of research before going for the Panasonic. There was hardly anything the Panasonic washing machines - and no reviews. But we got a very good deal from the Co-op. So far the Panasonic washing machine is performing well, but a bit noisy when just starting to go into its spin mode.
exactly, Dyson made great washing machines and had amazing service backup but they are no longer in production and support has now stopped also
They would have a hard job as Dyson pulled out of the washing machine market some years ago!
The eBay outlet was stating one left a short while ago.
