NOThypocondriac thats interesting, might give that a go myself

TurquiseCat lol I saw that too! As bad as the oven glove suggestion in the Sainsburys gift guide under "for her"....in fact, they had 2!

I've just tried it too NOT, it went straight into my basket!

NoSoggyBottoms Mon 19-Nov-12 11:26:56

I got the Playstation deal too shock

NoSoggyBottoms Mon 19-Nov-12 11:27:53

<shakes fist at Amazon in a menacing way>

Naughty Amazon!

NOThypocondriac Mon 19-Nov-12 11:28:16

NoSoggyBottoms - might be because loads of people apparently click to buy as soon as it's available without looking at the price, just in case it's a good deal, then when it's not they cancel so they've technically 'all gone' but there's loads still left in reality. But why Amazon can't then show the real stats might be technical problems or craftiness grin

(sorry, not to leave you out Pratting, x-posted!)

NoSoggyBottoms Mon 19-Nov-12 11:30:46

NOThypocondriac - maybe, maybe. But I'm a skeptical person....grin I'm sure Amazon would agree with your reply (apart from the last sentence!)

NOThypocondriac Mon 19-Nov-12 11:33:13

grin I'm sure. But how could they be reasonably expected to display real time stats? They're only a teeny weeny little billion-dollar/pound business after all!

NoSoggyBottoms Mon 19-Nov-12 11:33:45

Liquorice anyone?

ClaimedByMe Mon 19-Nov-12 11:34:13

Oh poo it won't work on my iPad! Wish I hadn't murdered my laptop the other day sad

NoSoggyBottoms Mon 19-Nov-12 11:34:33

who don't pay their taxes <coughs>

grin

I love Black Friday, am slightly addicted to it.

The deals get better as the week goes on.

Typical that the Lego is on at 3, school runtime angry

schilke Mon 19-Nov-12 11:38:01

I got the ps3 deal, but I put it back - thought it was a crap deal!

NOThypocondriac Mon 19-Nov-12 11:38:41

Hmmm, I'd forgotten that little nugget - so all the 15-20% off's REALLY aren't a good deal at all considering that's the minimum the buggers should be losing in tax anyway

NOThypocondriac Mon 19-Nov-12 11:41:26

Just seen there's a dog dna test kit coming up at 2.14 - I haven't watched Jezza Kyle in ages but I didn't know dog paternity was such a massive issue!

I don't even like liquorice, but it's making me need some. <must not add to basket>

Arf at dog dna test grin

NoSoggyBottoms Mon 19-Nov-12 11:43:20

SweetMingePie I noticed that.

NOThypocondriac grin

NOThypocondriac Mon 19-Nov-12 11:44:06

Same here Pratting - hate liquorice but am wondering if chocolate and salt would make it worthwhile grin

NoSoggyBottoms Mon 19-Nov-12 11:44:32

Dog DNA test! shock lol Didn't notice that one!

Liquorice original price was over £8! For Liquorice?!

Oooo it's a good discount though....

NoSoggyBottoms Mon 19-Nov-12 11:46:08

£4! Would rather buy the strawberry laces from a childrens sweet collection.

Whatever floats your boat!

Mmmm strawberry laces!

blush I added 3 different liquorice to my basket. I'm going to delete them though. Aren't I? Hmmm...
