Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year




Just following on from some of the thanks in the Udemy thread, many thanks to all the posters who contribute to Bargain alerts every day.


Here’s to a happy and healthy new year with hopefully many more bargains to come!

Please give a special mention to the threads which were your bargain of the year.

Happy Christmas all, it's been a pleasure moderating (that probably sounds strange).
Best thread was nespresso machine in Debenhams

Happy Christmas & all the best for 2018

Thanks to all who contributed & highlighted bargains

As for bargain of the year, I'm slightly biased but for me it was the 3/4" socket set from Halfords https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/show...&postcount=648 which was reduced from €300/€150 to €30, I paid €27 which was the bargain of the decade

The cheap Maglite torches from Halfords were also great value.

Have a happy and safe Christmas this year all my fellow bargain alert posters.

My favourite bargain of 2017 had to be the mavic pro I bought back in July followed closely by the Google home.

Merry Christmas to all. My bargains of the year had to be the €27 socket set, the €6 screwdriver set from Halfords, and the maglites.

An honourable mention must got to the vast amount of random crap posted by Suckit, much of which is slowly winging it's way to me now
