Welcome to Thursday's Amazon bargain thread grin

Loueytb3 Thu 22-Nov-12 10:03:47

Got my eye on the Lego Star Wars book set but having totted up the books individually on Amazon, you can get all 4 for less than £31 if you buy them separately vs the current bumped up price of £59 for the set.

So it will have to come down to well below £30 for me to bother.

Also got my eye on the star wars scalextric but need DH to say yay or nay and he's not responding to emails

Kindle Fire I think will be listed tomorrow.

Very interesting with so many of you saying that you are finding the items at lower prices elsewhere, including Amazon itself!

Savvy shoppers likely grin wink

Ditched HP and got Gibbs

Whispers - I think the Mumsnet / Zulily discount code has recently changed to 20MUMSNE15 - but it's a one time only code so save it for a nice big order! I got the code thanks to the lovely Reastie over on the bargainous christmas present code thread.

Imp - unfortunately I don't think Zulily have the Trunkis any more, as they are only on for a couple of days and then get taken off the site. But if you're not in a rush for one, they do come back to Zulily faily regularly grin Hope that helps?!

But I'd grab a bee one if the price gets down to around the £20 mark as you can get free postage on Amazon and it's £3.50 on Zulily!

Got the nerf gun smile bargain at £12.00 so pleased with that.

Do I want a trunki?

anklebitersmum Thu 22-Nov-12 10:37:58

anyone tell me how to get deals to update without f5 ing? counting down and then it doesn't swop to deal button sad ideas?

iseenodust Thu 22-Nov-12 10:41:53

Yeah got the Nerf thingy and seems like a good price.
The Scalextric is a good price (checked against Toys R Us, Argos) but more than I can justify on DN.

Arithmeticulous Thu 22-Nov-12 10:44:25

Even I would be hard pressed to buy anything today hmm

BlueGuinefort Thu 22-Nov-12 11:05:17

Well, my first Black Friday bargain has turned into a bit of a let down. I got DH these boots and they don't fit his stupid big feet.

They are a 10 in Old West Molasses and can't be exchanged for another size at the reduced price (I've checked with Amazon) sad

So, if anyone would like them for £49.99 plus P+P, I'd rather another MNetter got a bargain, than send them back to Amazon so they can sell them for £95!

Any takers? <<hopeful>>

Loupee Thu 22-Nov-12 11:12:21

blue would you say they are a true to size 10?

BlueGuinefort Thu 22-Nov-12 11:13:35

Well, it's hard to say because DH sometimes takes a size 10 and sometimes an 11. I'll go ask him (he's on the phone, so I may take a while)...

Marne Thu 22-Nov-12 11:17:11

I didn't buy the nurf, decided i had already bought dd enough so had to control myself and stick to whats on my list, am now waiting to get some of the bath bombs (for dd2's TA) and maybe the hand creams for my mum, also waiting for the black magic hamper.

A bit disapointed with whats on there today (and the past few days), not as good as last year unless the best is still to come.

NoSoggyBottoms Thu 22-Nov-12 11:21:14

Blue hope you get someone who wants to buy them

Marne...with only one day left, I'm losing hope of any amazing deals.

NoSoggyBottoms Thu 22-Nov-12 11:23:39

Is it me, or do their seem to be some odd items they are trying to get rid of stock, rather than give a good discount on a good item?

For example, coming up is a pack of 12 Vita Coco 100% Natural Coconut Water hmm

BlueGuinefort Thu 22-Nov-12 11:24:15

Oh, I was so excited. DH needed some new boots. There was some lightning deal boots. DH liked the boots. I got the deal. Twas like a dream come true. Pah!

(He's still on the phone, Marne)

bdaonion Thu 22-Nov-12 11:27:17

I have the same question as anklebitersmum. Does the screen automatically update with F5? I watch the time countdown and then panic when the Add to Basket doesn't come up, refresh and waste precious time scrolling to the item again. Do I need to be more patient?

magentastardust Thu 22-Nov-12 11:27:21

The hunger games trilogy is cheaper on the book people site if that helps anyone?

bdaonion Thu 22-Nov-12 11:28:01

*automatically update WITHOUT F5?

ImpYCelyn Thu 22-Nov-12 11:28:25

Thanks Shoop I'll keep an eye on the bee, and then check Zulily if it's not a good deal.

Marne Thu 22-Nov-12 11:28:56

I agree Nosoggy, lots of odd items, will be interesting to see if the coconut water sells fast smile, had to laught at the dog DNA tester kit on monday too (how many people would want to do a dna test on their dog?), also disapointed with what books and dvd box sets are on there (a load of rubbish).

ImpYCelyn Thu 22-Nov-12 11:29:10

bdaonion - don't refresh, sometimes the "Add to basket" button is really slow to appear, but it will come!

NoSoggyBottoms Thu 22-Nov-12 11:30:42

bdaonion Using a laptop here. I have the page on the upcoming deals with the counter conting down (obviously hmm). When it goes down to zero, it might take a few seconds, but then the deal appears with the "add to basket" button. I do not have to refresh/F5...does this automatically.


NoSoggyBottoms Thu 22-Nov-12 11:33:36

Marne Agree with you too. Wouldn't say that there have been any "must-have" items listed, as Amazon would have us believe.

Coconut milk, dog dna test, bic pens for her (wt..??!), brita water filters....c'mon!

So far this week, only been kinda interested in one item.

Better off trawling the internet and shops for better deals imo.

NoSoggyBottoms Thu 22-Nov-12 11:34:23

Half the coconut milk has gone, what do I know! hmm grin lol
