Bargain Alerts Charter & Resources [Amended 19-07-19]

This forum is for cheap and useful bargains that might be of use for the general populace of boards.

  • Due to the large quantity of [REQUEST] threads, a Bargain Alerts Request subforum has been created to allow the main forum to show less cluttered.

  • A new forum has been created for Referral codes. Please read the separate charter before posting.

  • Do leave feedback if you find a good bargain and let the other users know what the experience you had with the company or product.

  • Please follow the standard boards rules (no nonsense, behave, treat users with respect, etc).

  • The forum shall not be used by anyone for the purpose of personal gain by advertising their services directly or referring to same in their posts. This includes user names.

  • No Personal sales allowed here - Use Adverts.ie.

  • Boards has implemented a service, Skimlinks, on the site. Full info HERE.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact any of the mods. Happy Bargain hunting.

Thanks,
Bargain Alerts Mods.

[IMPORTANT] Please use the 'Requests' sub-forum for all Requests

You may have noticed a new 'Bargain Alerts [Requests)' subforum which has been created to deal with the ever-increasing percentage of threads requesting the best prices on various products / items.

Please use this forum for all requests from now on (20/12/07).

Any request threads posted in 'Bargain Alerts' after the "birthing period" of the new forum will be deleted - you have been warned!

http://www.batterycity.ie

Good for hard to find watch batteries, but also have most other types of battery and lamps, bulbs etc. Seem to be based in Denmark but if you're buying a few batteries then postage (5 euro) easily made back compared to battery prices in maplin, jewellers etc

I just bought a bunch of stuff from them. Delivery did take 6 days but well packaged and delay seemed to be down to DHL anyway.

Cashback Websites

For anyone who isn't familiar with these sites I thought I'd post a few links here. The way to get the best value when shopping online is to find the best possible price on the internet. Then when you've got the best price you can shave up to 10% or more off if the retailer participates in one of the cashback web sites such as Top Cashback, Quidco, Cashback Kings, Rpoints etc...

I've been including links to Quidco in a lot of my posts. I can confirm they do pay out via Paypal, minus a £5 per annum admin fee. Below are some of the more popular cashback web sites:

www.topcashback.co.uk
www.quidco.com
www.cashbackkings.com
www.wepromiseto.com
www.rpoints.com

Money Saving Expert Cashback Sites Article
http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/sho...hback-websites

The cashback sites themselves sometimes offer fees for referrals to join them. Instead of just joining yourself by going to the web site, it can pay to use a friends referral link, and get another friend to use yours. That way both joiner and referrer are paid when someone new signs up.
