    Got any Comet vouchers? ... Spend them today!

    Spend them as soon as you can or they may become worthless.

    Not surprising at all. I haven't been to a Comet store in years. Our local one is dreadful.

    Btw, your link doesn't work. Here's another that doesn't have a stupid paywall...

    Comet has been tiltering on the brink of Administration for a good 1 / 2 years! My dad used to work for Currys about 2 years ago as an engineer and he said back then there was word of them going under...Sometimes you can grab a really good bargain with them but not shocked tbh

    Comet suffer because they have become a showroom for Internet shoppers.

    I reckon we are all guilty of going into a high street shop (not just Comet) and saying oh yes I like that one, then going home and buying it online.

    The sooner the better these shysters were removed from the high street (Dixons group included). Full of staff that give appalling advice and don't get me started with their support people. The amount of times I've had a computer land on my desk after being to these people when something's gone wrong and they just factory install the OS again without trying to recover anything (and charged them 80 for pressing alt-f8 at boot)!

    I do feel sorry for the staff that will be on the street without a job, but the employers should have trained them better in the actual tech their selling rather than how to sell more of it!

    Did you pay with a credit card? If so, you can get your money back.

    I always use a credit card for purchases over 100 for exactly this reason.

    I've got a cooker, tv, 2 x blu-ray players, dishwasher, home audio system, kettle & toaster due to be delivered tomorrow.....even though I know I'm covered for items over 100, I still stand to lose 200 if it all goes wrong :-(
