Best code for a Maxi Micro Scooter?

(33 Posts)

DD is almost 6, too big for a mini micro scooter (which DS has, and it is fab) - but are the Maxi Micros really £96?
She's had the cheaper scooters in the past and they are absolutely no comparison to DS's Mini-micro in terms of stability and build quality..

have been after 1 too for ds, been hanging on for ages as wanted a good deal. another mn linked to www.bikester.co.uk/bicycle/kids-bikes/scooter-roller/229233.html but was out of stock but they now have them back for £80.99 and if you sign up to the newsletter on the home page you get a £10 off code so works out at £70.99. i ordered ds one this morning so hopefully everything will be ok, bargain grin

You are so brill! thank you so much, I'll order it tonight grin

smartestgiant - how did you get the £10 off? I signed up for the newsletter and got my confirmation email but no mention of a £10 off code.

Worked for me! Look on your sign up emails, the code was on there

hi, i had 2 newsletter emails from them one after the other. the 2nd had the coupon code in it. check your spam maybe to see if it has gone in there otherwise ring them.

Found it! Thank you!

Did your scooters arrive ok? Would you recommend the company?

ooo-fantastic! i am off to sign up now- you dont happen to have the code do you?

Mindy73 Wed 04-May-11 19:04:25

Mine arrived today! Has taken over a week to come so I was getting a bit worried.......
It comes from Germany so takes a little longer.
Great price considering they are £93 on the official micro scooters website.

mine came tuesday, everything seems fine. says 2-4 days delivery, took few extra days because of the bank holiday.

I've been trying to register for the £10 discount on bikester all day but the confirmation link they've emailed just sends me to an 'error' page. I've tried registering again with another email address and calling them but cant get an answer! Does anyone have the actual voucher code for the £10 discount please? Dd is 'desperate' for a mini micro for her birthday but we're on a tight budget this year. Any help would be much appreciated.

Mindy73 Thu 19-May-11 21:20:03

The voucher code is specific to you when you register so it wouldn't be any use to let you have ours. I also tried to phone them a few times and it just rings and rings hmm

If you want the mini better off using Jojo Maman Bebe - think there is a 15% off code around.

Also try your local John Lewis - saw them in Nottingham branch for £39! £15 cheaper than online.

Mindy73 Fri 20-May-11 21:13:22

lovelyjubbly333 - I received a 15% off code for a £45 spend at Jojomamanbebe today - KE11. They only do the mini micro in pink or blue tho' so not sure it will be any good to you if your DD particularly wants the red! Gets the price down to £42.50 so worth considering smile

Thanks Mindy73, I've been watching this thread wondering whether to order the blue one from JoJo or the red one off micro-scooters. The 15% off swayed me into ordering from JoJo!
Much appreciated!

TY - that's DS's birthday present sorted now!

Shnange Mon 06-Jun-11 17:31:03

I want to say thanks for this my daughter has been desperate for a maxi for ages and all her friends have them so i know how good they are and was willing to pay full price but bikester have just got them back in stock today so its ordered ready for her birthday in 2 weeks!! And all for £70.99!! Bargain!! smile

Shnange Mon 06-Jun-11 17:37:26

MINDY,,, can i ask is it actually a micro maxi scooter as i emailed maxi scooter to see if theyd match the price but they said bikester werent allowed to sell micro maxis within the uk?? im a bit worried now as ive just paid my cash!!! eeeek hmm

manicmamma Mon 06-Jun-11 18:11:44

Got my Dd maxi ......big thanks for posting this fab deal!!!
love a bargain!!!

Mindy73 Mon 06-Jun-11 21:23:10

It is the real Micro Maxi. Perhaps Bikester can get round it because they are based in Germany?

Shnange Thu 09-Jun-11 14:36:40

Phew,,,, thank goodness,, got an email saying its been dispatched so im gonna ahve a happy little lady!!! Thanks everyone!! grin

SingingPiglit Tue 14-Jun-11 11:40:47

Thanks to the smartestgiantintown (great name) you have just saved me £22!! was really reluctant to spend £94 on a scooter but £70.99 is still a lot but much more managable. Thank you my son will be most impressed.

Hi. I've just tried to access Bikester's website, but it seems they only have a static page with no contact details. I hope that doesn't mean they've folded. I wondered if you knew of a number I could call please? Thanks.

YoginiAB Tue 02-Apr-13 22:48:59

Bikester don't seem to deliver to UK anymore... or do the Maxi Micro Scooter - anyone any ideas where else to go - surely they can't really be £100!! (Like JL & Amazon). Thanks
