Morning all smile

I have a kindle in my basket, ready to go grin

Nice to see some Lego finally, but the sets aren't as good as last years by the looks of it sad

What will you have in your basket today?

Seriously considering a Kindle for DS, but don't really know if they're good for Internet and games as well as books

Loupee Fri 23-Nov-12 07:11:28

Good morning smile
I'm not sure about the Kindle, I really wand an HD one, Ho hum.
Might try for the baby wipes again, can never have enough of those!
DH has mumbled something about the pressure washer, exciting!
Oh I dunno, I think I have Black Friday lethargy.

SantasComingFace Fri 23-Nov-12 07:12:07

Nothing really that I need today. I was hoping for wine making kits again. It's all a bit groundhog day isn't it? Sick of seeing those water filters. (realise I'm contradicting myself)

No Kindle HDs sad. Don't want the regular Fire at all.

Will have a proper look in a bit, but I notice that the Lego Ninjago Fire Temple was there - ds2 had that last Christmas (Free- thanks Tesco!) and it is a really big set, which only just collapsed the other day, he has played with it loads so I can't recommend it highly enough!

<eyes loupee suspiciously> I will get some baby wipes today, goddamit. Tempted by the nappies too, although we normally get baby dry.

Loupee Fri 23-Nov-12 07:36:54

whispers we can have a duel for the wipes
Will see what the nappies go for, but we normally use Huggies.
Oh it's terribly exciting today!

SlightlySuperiorPeasant Fri 23-Nov-12 07:38:17

I'm so disappointed about the Kindle sad

Today I fancy:

- the car seat cover at 1145
- the Brio at 1
- the Invicta watch at 7
- some of the DVDs at 8

Tortoise there's another orange spider watch up today grin

milk Fri 23-Nov-12 07:41:46

Finally a day with good stuff on it grin

I want:
- Jamie's 15 minute meals
- Chuggington - Complete Series 1 Box Set

Morning all. I don't know what to do about the kindle. There is a very slim chance that DP will buy me one for xmas but its only about .00001% as he doesn't really like to buy online and is impervious to hints. I really wanted the HD BUT this is 30 quid off. Grrrrr decisions.

Off to have a look at what is coming up

BeedleTheBard Fri 23-Nov-12 07:46:53

I think its slightly more exciting today.

I was thinking about the Rocket Dog boots, they should end up quite cheap with the £10 fashion voucher, or are they just rip-off Ugg boots? they'd be expensive to send back if I don't like them (I live abroad)

ClaimedByMe Fri 23-Nov-12 07:51:33

Never Mind kindles what happened to Lego advent calendars?? They were on my black Friday email at the weekend, did I miss them sobs

IHopeYouStepOnALegoPiece Fri 23-Nov-12 07:52:19

I'm trying to get the Men in Black boxset for a xmas gift...then I have to go to work and attempt to do the Scuttlebug, Ninjango Lego set, Emili Sande CD, Jelly beans, Kitchen tongs and the Aladin boxset (and poss Toy Story) On my phone! Argh!

Snazzyfeelingfestive Fri 23-Nov-12 07:53:30

Marking place. Have resisted buying anything since Tuesday so will see how today goes. Not after the Kindle.

happymummy2010 Fri 23-Nov-12 07:57:14

Silly question.. But if I put the Lego set in my basket will I get the BF price if I check out when the offer is on or do I need to put the set on my basket during the BF period ?

NoSoggyBottoms Fri 23-Nov-12 07:57:53

Morning Ladies!

Hoping that Bish is a good price!

ImpYCelyn Fri 23-Nov-12 07:58:53

I want (price dependent):
Battlestar Galactica
Indiana Jones
Berghaus rucksack
Illy coffee
Jelly Beans
Baby wipes

I can't get it all, so I'll see what I can bag. Stuff like wipes and nappies doesn't count though, I'd have to buy them anyway grin

IHopeYouStepOnALegoPiece Fri 23-Nov-12 08:01:26

You have to put it in during the BF period happy

ImpYCelyn Fri 23-Nov-12 08:01:40

Book People have a good deal on Mr Men, so I wonder if Amazon can match it.

I'm annoyed they now have the orange Le Creuset. I got cerise at the beginning of the week, but I'd have waited for orange.

One down on my list grin

whatkungfuthat Fri 23-Nov-12 08:02:43

Kindle is in the basket. I might get it and see what happens at xmas. If I get the HD for xmas I will give it to DS for his birthday. Does anyone know what happens with the lovefilm month free - does it activate as soon as you get it or can you choose when to activate it?

ClaimedByMe Sainsburys are doing the Lego advent calendars this year, useful if you have nectar points to spend.

NoSoggyBottoms Fri 23-Nov-12 08:03:34

Bish in the basket....

aimingtobeaperfectionist Fri 23-Nov-12 08:03:45

Am a bit thick but how does it work? I've never heard of it before.

Tortoise Fri 23-Nov-12 08:04:52

I want jelly beans. Going for 600g one because its the one that's normally cheapest!
Might get mib box set for Ds1. He hasn't seen the films and keeps saying he'd like to. (Trouble is they download films so might be pointless having discs!)

PrattingAroundTheChristmasTree Fri 23-Nov-12 08:04:56

I bought an xbox bundle this morning off Amazon and another one but quickly noticed and managed to cancel it! Phew!

So I must not buy anything. Must NOT buy anything.

ImpYCelyn Fri 23-Nov-12 08:06:08

Gah, I've just realised I'm going to be out when quite a bit of what I'd like comes up - typical!
