    Ebuyer - £1 clearance sale!

    I'm sure most of you are bombarding this site. It's up and down more than a randy rabbit!

    I did manage to get it loaded at one point, and this featured in the £1 list!

    Have just seen that. Thing is, in their small print it says £1 "on all clearance items", so basically bargain basement anyway. I mean a magenta ink cartridge for a certain printer....bonus if you own that printer but were people expecting a laptop and TV for a quid?

    It also seems slightly bad business as the thousands of non members who hear about this via facebook and the likes, hammer the site, buy a usb cable for a pound then never return, in the meantime the regular users have to wait 6 hours to order the bits they normally want.

    So if you're in the market for a USB cable, a USB cable or a magenta ink cartridge (and a USB cable) get on to their sale

    I got on, and seriously, it's all tat. Wii controllers that are usually abot £3 are now £1. Not forgetting it's £5.99 delivery (unless you order over £50) so the minimum order is £6.99 for something that costs a pound.

    Its very flaky - one minute it's OK, the next it's all "bleeeuuuugggghhhh".

    I'm not expecting many good things on there. However I may come across something that I remember I need.

    Also, I think posting it is a fiver? You only get free delivery over £49 quid don't you?

    ill be honest, this is actually stupid. put things on offer then not able to cope with demand.
    i just thought "ohh i might get that". when i placed in basket, 61 in stock, by the time the basket page had loaded, 35 in stock. by the time payment page had loaded, out of stock.

    Just think of the money they're losing while nobody can get on to buy anything because people are flooding it spend £1...

    Previous years ebuyer have done great deals, a different deal each day like the first 100 ps3's for 60% off, those were great just stick to those sort of deals ebuyer not silly £1 offers, Im certain the idea is to bring in customers its almost marketing more then sales but its a failure as they cant take the demand and will put people off their service!

    And in the user reviews a guy has put he recommends it to anyone wanting to spend £25-£30 on a TV stand. So they have obviously increased the "previous price" to make it look like a better deal.

    KWorld PlusTV S-100 SE DVB Satellite PCI TV Card With Remote - this seemed decent but sold out straight away.
