ZOMBIE THREAD ALERT: This thread hasn't been posted on for a while.
It's the last Christmas bargain thread 2013/January Sales offers(1000 Posts)
I didn't even realise the last thread was nearly at the end
As usual I'll stick the long OP in the next message, but haven't been so diligent about keeping it updated since it's so close to Christmas and it's all slowed down, sorry.
I've started thinking about presents for next year
Oooh, I love the SALES!!!!!

Perhaps we could do feedback on what gifts from the bargain threads went down well?
I feel sad that this could be the last thread. I've saved loads and loved the chat and help that's been given.
Giving feedback is a great idea.
It's good to have you in green again Reastie.
Hello Reastie and everyone else takes off coat and sits down in an armchair with a glass of wine
Message withdrawn at poster's request.
I'm also sad that it's coming to an end. It was only thread 7 when I had a baby!
Can you savvy shoppers help me please? I have been let down where I originally bought this and need.. The DVD of the 1958 FA cup final between Bolton and Man united! I can't find anywhere that can promise to get it to me by Christmas.
Triple DVD set - Despicable Me, the Lorax and Hop for just £5.99. (That is cheaper than the cost of buying Despicable Me separately!)
LEGO definitely complain to the retailer about yodel. My husband did this with a gap delivery, one phone call from gap to yodel and an hour later the parcel was delivered.
I was on the phone on hold for 20mins but I gave up becuase tbh I can't afford an expensive call!
Apparently it's been delivered to Borhamwood...I live in N London so I've no idea whats going on!
Gah!! I was SO pleased it was on it's way and now I'm annoyed again! Though am annoyed at myself for throwing it away in the first place!
Hair it's not the last thread EVER though, just last one of 2013
unless we get too carried away with sales shopping
Nix what about Tomy Eggs?
Hi all you bargainers... Unfortunately due to an unforeseen circumstance
ie mother in law from bloody hell deciding today that she couldnt make it down before Christmas so dd Cant have her presents before Xmas even though thy bought £200 worth of stuff I recommended for her and she really wants for Xmas ahem, I have bought the zhu zhu puppies and zhu zhu hamster value set from
Tesco to collect on Monday (nothing like cutting it fine) and wanted to know specifically what was in it/them and what I still need to get etc and what does it DO and where can I find the animals.
Please help me
Found you, I was getting worried there. Am officially an addict, what will I do in January?! Thanks all, especially Reastie
This looks a good bargain. Don't need it, but got it for the present drawer. Its going to keep ginny the pony and the nintendo dogs company!
Thanks Reastie. I've really enjoyed these threads and have never felt so organised. Would love to hear feedback of which presents have gone down well
Anyone else like the taster Toucan box that they may have "accidentally" forgotten to cancel their order?
Bastard M&S - I ordered a load of wrap and stuff on Tuesday. Today 3 boxes arrived as it was not available to collect in store - one box not there. It came in three separate deliveries. Now it appears that the 4th box is showing as being signed for at the same time as the last one - erm, no!
Speak to M&S, this happen to me last year. They re delivered last box, and after Christmas I got a full refund and an apology. There customer service is good.
Last thread ! Sob ! I've really missed all the chat, since the threads have slowed down. I've missed hearing about what everyone is buying, I'm so nosey. I've actually bought stocking fillers for next year, today.
