    Sun 9.50 Holidays Jan 2014 Code words 2nd Jan 14 at 2:50 PM
    Hi All

    The code words will be posted here every day, I will update the opening post so the words appear here and you don't have to hunt through the thread for them. I'm not buying the paper so if people who do could post the word of the day in the thread then I will update it.

    I'm not sure if it will be possible to crack the final word, as last time the sun did this in September 2013 the last word was a random combination of letters and numbers (it was CY07) so maybe those days are over

    Codes:

    Sat 4th : GOOD
    Sun 5th : RACE
    Mon 6th : SHOW
    Tue 7th : KITE
    Wed 8th : ABLE
    Thu 9th : NEON
    Fri 10th : ECHO
    Sat 11th : GONE
    Sun 12th : PS61
    Mon 13th : TIME
    Bonus : LOOK

    Hi
    Can some one answer some questions about butlins skegness please?

    1. Is this the butlins main resort or the caravan park opposite?
    2. If it is the butlins main site can we upgrade to the silver or gold apartments?
    3. Why is there a need for an Entertainment Plus Pass?(12 per person per 9.50 break - 15 per person per 15 break) We were at butlins last year and the only extra passes you had to buy were for the sky bar or activity passes.
    Thanks

    1. Yes, it is the Butlins main resort
    2. Yes you can upgrade. If you upgrade to Silver you get it cheaper than if booking direct with Butlins, (for me it was 3.50 per person per night extra). If you upgrade to Gold though you'll be paying brochure prices so you won't get any savings.
    3. The entertainment passes are for you to use all their activities like the shows, swimming pool and funfair. When booking direct with Butlins this cost is included in the price, whereas with the Sun offer you have to pay separate. I don't know if you can ask to have them taken off as in my invoice it just tells me how much I owe, it doesn't break it down to the individual costs. It's still much cheaper than booking direct with Butlins though. I can't imagine they'd let you take them off as there would be no way of them monitoring who is allowed in and who isn't as you don't get given a physical pass to show to people.

    I'm going in Easter half term this year staying in a Silver Room, half board for 3 of us and it's 268.00 whereas direct with Butlins it would be 435.00.

    Hope this helps

    Hi,

    My first post on here...not sure if this is the right place to ask or indeed if anyone knows as yet...or anyone has already answered......in my priority booking form pack there was mention of booking multiple holidays (I believe Jellyhead mentioned it on the first page of this thread). Does anyone know what the deal with this is? Can you book 4 nights followed by 3 nights in a row to make a full week at the same resort?

    Any help greatly received.

    Cheers

    Firstly we have to wait until the booking site opens which from experience should be some time on Saturday afternoon, before the Sun Staff go home for the day.

    You fill in the details in the green cells, with your priority reference, the remaining code words, and your email address, then you have to select what words you want to check, we will no doubt be allocating people blocks of code words to check, so you change the "start at line" number to the number that corresponds to the start of the words you want to check which you get from the list of words and lines to the right. Then you press the start button and it should open an Internet Explorer window and start checking through the words from the point which you set. If it comes across the correct word then will go through to booking and I think the spread sheet will say something like The word may be FROG (for example).

    You will have to allow macro's to run in excel for the checker to work, this can be found in the menu under Tools>Options>Security>Macro Security and set it to Low

    Unfortunately I don't have excel at home, but I will ask at work if I can come in to use the pc at the weekend, not sure what they'll say, but I will ask! How long does it usually take to get through everything? I would need to give them an idea of how long I would be in for?
    I don't think I can hang on til Friday...

    I think it depends on where you go, I've never paid anything over 100 and that includes upgrading to a 3 bedroom caravan,heating etc all included, staying a week, passes etc and the sites being in France.

    September? well that's great if your 3 children are pre-school age. Thats what I did when mine were all little

    Unfortunately for the majority of us now though, ours are all school aged, so unless we pay extra to take our children out of school term-time (which would cost a fortume - (at my school anyway) it wouldn't be worth it.
