They are Sony and usually £49.99, it is confusing as it says you have to buy a micro system but actually I just ordered two radios and got one free.

NB when I reserved them to collect, the discount didn'#t come up in store and they wouldn't honour it so I ordered online and they have arrived today.

I am not sure if it is a typo on the website but as long as we don't all go mad, I think it's Ok to share smile

Thinking good for Xmas if you have two children as it works out at £25 each, they have pink or black.

I don't know if they will fix the typo or not, it might be legit anyway...worth a try though!

The store actually rang the online lot to confirm if it was right or not and were told by someone there that it wasn't right, but that was yesterday and nobody has changed it so I don't know.

Looks like its been fixed. If you buy the micro system for £99.99 you get the digital radio for free. Shame they spotted it, I could have got some Xmas presents lol

I couldn't present my teen with that. It is the fugliest radio I have seem since 1920.

Which leads me to the question...Just why are DAB radios so goddamn unattractive?

No, it hasn't been fixed! It just says that but it still works.

Just tick the box on the pink one and click on 'buy or reserve' and it takes you to the checkout with one priced at £0.00!

Try it!

MlleFingeot, did you order? If so did you get confirmation? I ordered 2 pink ones @ £0.00 but didn't get confirmation- not sure if it went through or not lol

MlleFingeot Sun 14-Sep-08 12:20:42

Ooh that's a good idea! I didn'tr know you could do just the free ones!

Yes I got an email a while later saying order accepted, subject to the stock thingy, actually on the 'thankyou for ordering' page that comes up when you initially do it it did mention something about stock levels possibly needing to be confirmed.

So I didn';t thnink they would come but they arrived the next day.

Sorry I am Flight btw smile

MlleFingeot Sun 14-Sep-08 12:27:39

I've just ordered two more pink ones as a test!!
It went through but have not had confirmation yet. I might return them even if they do come as I feel disingenuous about it.
In fact I think I might ring them - they can't just give them away!

MlleFingeot Sun 14-Sep-08 12:28:17

Oh I just got the email.

God the guilt! I will take them back if they come.

kid Sun 14-Sep-08 19:22:14

It does come up 0.00, you are right. They are not available for home delivery but are available for collection at my local store.
I couldn't go through wih it as I doubt they would allow me to have them when I got there!

MlleFingeot Sun 14-Sep-08 19:32:49

Oh they must have sold out today - I will let you know if they turn up! yes, I don;t think the store would allow you to collect...!

Aarrgghh Sun 14-Sep-08 19:41:42

Just testing the system (as don't actually need one)and it has let me order 1 black and 4 pink - i did it for store pick up. It has seperated them into two orders black and pink - almost as if i can go pick up 4 free radios. Madness! Like you kid i won't go through with it
