I think I ordered the last one in Dundrum for pickup between the 13th-15th after they get stock in, it also says it will be eligible at €14.29 until the 21st, nice one.

Oh no the scissors are not good quality at all. There are quite the opposite. They are cheaply made, no precise control and have a slight bend to them as is typical of budget stuff. My gf is a hairdresser and she burst out laughing when I showed her the scissors.

I thought they felt nicely weighted in my hand, and didn't notice a bend in them really, but I am very far from a hairdresser so I'll bow to your gfs experiences

I got mine through the EBAY store when it was under a tenner. Even with delivery it was still a bargain

It cascades over a few weeks between increasingly limited functionality- and being completely deactivated.

You have 30 days to renew your subscription.
After 30 days- your data is locked out- and can only be accessed by contacting the helldesk.
90 days after the expiration of your subscription- your data is deleted and is irretrievable, even to helldesk admins.

I.e. its an online version of Microsoft office- and anything you create is in the cloud- and if it expires, you have 30 days grace before you can no longer access your data, and then a further 60 days before its irretrievably deleted.

I don't care how much this Argos bargain costs- even if it were free- I'd refuse to use it.

.

it's a full version of office you install on your pc and is linked to an account so when the year is up the copy of office on installed will stop working after a grace period you can save all your files locally
if you want it also includes 1tb of cloud storage.

you are not forced to save anything in the cloud

it's normally €70 so its great value

This is a pretty big ship,for €6.49 it's a bargain,the figure alone is usually that price.

I had this before, for me anyway it simply meant I didn't have a reservation.

Samsung 55 inch curved tv for €579 seems really good value, I know it doesn't have HDR but the reviews are really good and its almost £900 on amazon, I would have loved the 49inch one they had at €414 but they are all gone, anyway going to take a chance on the 55inch
what do you think??
