Pleased it wasn't just me Guitar!

It's very confusing with the price, I bought the Let's Dance Disney for Wii earlier for 15.99. Once I had it in the basket and started clicking through to buy it went back up to 22.99 right up until the last click when it went back to 15.99 but then they also tried to move my free delivery to first class so keep an eye out for that to avoid getting stung with unwanted delivery charges!

BlueGuinefort Tue 20-Nov-12 17:29:39

Eeek.

Well, luckily I added myself to the waiting list for the boots as soon as I spotted that the first order went through at full price. I then had a webchat with an Amazon person, who didn't know what had happened. In the meantime, the boots became available again so I bought them at the reduced price and cancelled the full price order. Phew!

I probably clicked the wrong button or something blush. So the moral of that -rambling story is to KEEP AN EYE ON THE PRICE!

BTW: The basket showed the reduced price, then <click> the delivery options page showed the full price, then <click> the checkout page showed the reduced price again. Strange and confusing (or maybe that's just me!).

BlueGuinefort Tue 20-Nov-12 17:05:57

Does anyone know whether the item gets put into your basket at the full price and then goes through at the reduced price? <<wishful thinking>>

Panicking a bit - thought I had a bargain pair of Cat boots for DH - and they went through at £90-something instead of £49.99.

Damn, clicked on the wrong bit when trying for the Disney nightlight. The one thing I really bloody wanted.

Don't refresh - it counts down (for me), stalls a bit at 0:00 then the yellow box comes up. No refreshing.

Mornin all.
Just started Thread 2 Day 2.
Can't link. Am incompetent.

I got the Lovefilm 6 month subscription last year. Think it was £17. We've still not started using it angry

Shall I start a thread part 2?

Is it an inflatable kayak? That is dh's mid life crisis dream!!!

PixieHot Tue 20-Nov-12 07:19:49

I'm not sure about Cyberjammies sizing though - I've got a size 14 pair of jammie bottoms, but I think that they're slightly too small and slightly too short. Might be worth a quick search for those hoping to buy.

PixieHot Tue 20-Nov-12 07:16:47

We have the nursery rhymes books already, they're fab and DS loves them. I think we got them from the Book People for £6 or £8.

grin at a kayak!

Nothing temping me today. Bet there will be tomorrow when I have to go out most of the day!

SlightlySuperiorPeasant Tue 20-Nov-12 07:11:39

Today I must not buy:

- a set of nursery rhymes
- a laser spirit level
- pyjamas
- a subscription to love film
- a kayak

...

Taggie, I would be supportive of a daily thread, I'm also on a phone smile

Whoever wanted a silver Anglepoise lamp, they're on tomorrow!

Tortoise Tue 20-Nov-12 00:26:58

Just had a look through tomorrows deals. A few bits i like the look of. Think DDs would like Disney just dance on wii.

SweetMingePie Mon 19-Nov-12 23:02:55

If you check what time it is coming up you'll need to have the Black Friday page open and as soon as it comes up press the button. Fastest fingers first!

BluelightsAndSirens Mon 19-Nov-12 22:54:43

Please help me work it out, I will need to be on my phone on Friday but would love a kindle fire for DD.

Do I need to be on line at a special time and logged on etc

I'm a Black Friday virgin smile

SweetMingePie Mon 19-Nov-12 22:29:29

Can't see why not. Make sure to link it on here though so others can find it.

TaggieCampbellBlack Mon 19-Nov-12 22:24:53

Can we have a daily Black Friday thread? My phone struggles with long threads.

Day off tomorrow. Hoping for a bargain or 2!

Tortoise Mon 19-Nov-12 20:01:18

Yay transferred money (may not be a good thing lol!).
Bought Xbox game for DS1.

SweetMingePie Mon 19-Nov-12 20:01:18

I think kindle fires are gong to be on Friday. I dont need one, DH bought on the other day, but good for those who do?
