Second Christmas bargain 2013 thread already? It's still only July!

Here we go people, the second bargain Christmas thread for 2013 already <feels slightly overorganised> . Please forgive the fact that so many sale and amazon products aren’t individually linked - so many of them are out of stock and amazon seem to change prices on an almost hourly basis (it feels like) on a number of items that were previously linked to. As usual please tell me if any of these links/codes don’t work or if there’s anything particularly you want to be in the next OP (assuming there is another wink ) how would I do any shopping without you now

thanks for all your help in helping my christmas shopping in 2013 be once again bargainous grin

[Thanks] Reastie

Witt I got my DH a three month description. We've now extended to the 12 month subscription as we have enjoyed it very much. Once you have activated the voucher, you receive a slimline cardboard box filled with laminated receipe cards and spices. You have to buy the other ingredients. If there is a receipe they really love, they can go back onto website and reorder th spices (guess what DH is getting in his stocking smile).

Julia Donaldson pack of 10 books for £10 at The Book People. Got these for DD - whether we can wait until Christmas though!

IShallWearMidnight Tue 30-Jul-13 20:08:24

re the Spicery - bought it for student DD who said it was one of the best presents she's ever had. Bought it for stepMIL 60th birthday - again went down brilliantly. Want it for myself this Christmas wink. Totally recommend it! Also DD says they send little extras as well.

WRT the Amazon free super saver delivery changing to orders over £10... I wanted to buy something that was £9 odd yesterday - but delivery that had been free came up at over £6 (way over the top too - it was a very small item). So I added something else bringing the order total to £10 odd and it still wouldn't give me free delivery.

It might just have been those particular items, but just keep an eye out and see what is happening. So many of our bargains are from there, if we have to start paying delivery they will not be so bargainous!

Anyhoo thanks for thread number 2 Reastie.

I've got a Tinker Bell mad dd so thought this box set from the book people was a bargain.

She's also keen on learning Spanish thanks to our pal Dora so this book set has been bought too.

Oreocrumbs Tue 30-Jul-13 21:12:23

ooh 'scuse the Daily Mail link, but here is what the 'savvy shoppers' are doing to get round the Amazon delivery charges! Here.

Think I will trial the prime until Christmas though. Will put it in my big work diary to cancel though.

Hopefully this will hit Amazon hard and they will reinstate it before too long.

NigellaEllaElla Tue 30-Jul-13 21:33:04
