girlwiththeyellowhats do we have any news yet? <impatient>

Fifth thread already, how did that happen?! I’ve booked our panto tickets now so am feeling very festive grin . Tips I learnt from the last thread number 24837 - wrap a huge cardboard box in christmas gift wrap to put all the rubbish on christmas day in rather than a bin bag so you don’t get a black plastic sack in all of the photos

Please forgive the fact that so many sale and amazon products aren’t individually linked or are linked but price may since change by the time you click on it - 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

I've not had a reply from Hope yet and I emailed them before you! What should my stance be? I took a screen shot of the item before ordering

HenriettaPye Tue 10-Sep-13 16:01:26

I would email them again! Did you send them a picture of the screenshot?

GirlWithTheYellowHat Tue 10-Sep-13 16:10:58

I used the contact us page so couldn't attach the screen shot but I said I had one and I needed them to email me so I could attach it. What email address did you use?

HenriettaPye Tue 10-Sep-13 16:17:55

I used the contact us page to ask about whether I would receive 1 or 6 and she replied to me saying 6, so I just replied to that. Looking at the email though it's said it's coming from

GirlWithTheYellowHat Tue 10-Sep-13 16:22:25

Thanks. Ill see what they say. Never know whether to say "oh but my friends order has been honoured" etc!

Reastie Tue 10-Sep-13 16:29:33

Has anyone been to Harrods santas grotto before? Am seriously tempted for DD but don't think I could take all those christmas shoppers (I like to shop from the comfort of my sofa!). We've booked father christmas (but there's always room for more than one trip!) and panto already (front row seats for panto blush )

Just working on new OP......

Reastie Tue 10-Sep-13 16:32:25

Ok, have done it her thread here

Who's going to have the festive joy of filling this one up? <lazy> grin

WaitMonkey Tue 10-Sep-13 16:38:09

Me. Please me. Let me fill it up. Always wanted to do it.

HenriettaPye Tue 10-Sep-13 16:38:49

Girlwiththeyellowhat I would just send the same email you have already sent, but with the screenshot attached this time. If they then come back and say no it was a mistake I would then say that your friends had been honoured and that's very unfair!

WaitMonkey Tue 10-Sep-13 16:39:31

When I say always, I am aware that this is only about thread number 5. But I have always wanted to fill the bargain thread up.

HenriettaPye Tue 10-Sep-13 16:39:40

Lets fill it with a singalong!! Who's starting??!

GirlWithTheYellowHat Tue 10-Sep-13 16:39:41

Will do henrietta

WaitMonkey Tue 10-Sep-13 16:39:54


WaitMonkey Tue 10-Sep-13 16:40:38
