Mumsnet Co-Buying has launched this week. It works as follows: say lots of Mumsnetters want the same product - could be chocolate or cosmetics, could be gadgets or sports gear - then with Mumsnet Co-Buying the more of you who buy it, the cheaper the price becomes. In partnership with BuyaPowa, we'll feature different products each week. There will be a limited number of each product and each offer will last for a limited amount of time. For more information click here.
So we'd like to know what you'd like to see featured on Mumsnet Co-Buying.
Tell us here and we'll do our best to get the products you want.

And having looked at the p&p I see it is available to UK mumsnetters only, so maybe you should say that sad. I have just wasted two minutes ages and want chocolate.

If you click on the co buy details it tells you this one is p&p free via royal mail. You can choose to not have your details appear on leaderboard.

Thanks Katie - I kind of inadvertently ended up buying the chocolate obviously I would have bought it anyway as I clicked on 'sign up' or something, filled in my details and was then told I'd bought it - I thought I was just signing up to the website, not the actual deal! So it was slightly unclear - but then this explanation probably is and I'm very glad we'll get the chocolate for £3 grin

It's put me off clicking just for info though on any other deals, in case I find myself signed up for something not calorie related else...

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Wed 29-Feb-12 13:07:11

Katie, i think this was asked upthread but can you sticky this (and future deals) to suck in lots of mners so we achieve lowest price

QED Wed 29-Feb-12 13:48:22

Saw about this on fb and searched here to find out what it was, and hearing that it will be £3 whatever is tempting me to do it smile Currently 39 people have signed up - shall I be the 40th?

Thanks for all of your comments so far - this is a trial to see how well it goes so it's really useful to have your feedback so we can make it better

Maryz - it is free p&p and you can hide your name from the leaderboard. Sorry that it's UK only - again we'll work on making that more prominent

DottyDot - sorry you found it unclear, we'll look at that. However you do have to put your payment card details in before it's actually bought - so please don't be worried about clicking just for info

ItsAllGoingToBeFine - I'll get it stickied now

I would like a larger house and a little light plastic surgery, please.

QED Wed 29-Feb-12 13:59:39

If you do paypal (am still thinking about this) does it take the full amount straight away (ie at the moment it says £5) or does it wait until the end. I started doing it and got to the paypal part but it said £5 and looked like I was about to make a paypal payment for that much.

TisPityShesAWhore Wed 29-Feb-12 14:00:47

Diamonds

and puppies.

I can't think of anything else I want.

Ooo I'll join in for the loft conversion. That's two of us! Only 98 to go. Come on MNers.

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 29-Feb-12 14:11:19

QED - We asked the people at Buyapowa and they say:

"We do not take any money from your bank or PayPal account until the co-buy has closed. When you join a co-buy, your bank or PayPal will authorise your credit or debit card for the current price. This amount is ring-fenced (reserved) until the end of the co-buy, at which point, your account will be settled for the closing price."

Mixed Chicks hair products (I swear they'll bankrupt me, one day)

QED Wed 29-Feb-12 14:23:28

Thank you - might go ahead and do it then smile

FruitShootsAndHeaves Wed 29-Feb-12 14:45:08

Me too for the loft conversion and I'll need a garden shed too please to store all the junk antiques from the loft.

I'm to ugly to bother with make up / beauty products and I'm trying to stay off the chocolate so some necessities (not bear ones grin) that I need but don't necessarily like using!

like mops
and vacuums
and irons
and cat piss remover (sorry bad day!)

or nice stuff like books
or computer software
and Lamborghini's
