    50% discount (half price to celebrate half a year).
    Am looking forward to the logical follow-up to this in a further 6 months time!
    It goes without without saying that the site will be busy on Friday.
    That was my first thought when I heard of the deal. Their site will crash within minutes.

    oh I've had my sensible head on for too long, so its TGIF day!
  • I've got Facebook open, I've got the website open, I've got my carefully selected items in my basket (just the two things, and things I would have needed to buy anyway), debit card primed and ready and I'm getting the facebook alerts sent to my mobile (also sat next to me). Is there anything else I should be doing? (other than exam revision :P)
    Good luck everyone, I hope you all get what you want :D
  • Code now live XX-FBFFMAY
    managed to get my order in and confirmed after having it open on the enter coupon code page all morning but now site appears to be down completely.
    good luck, hope you managed to get in, quickest copy and pasting i've done in my life lol
  • I seem to be stuck at the contacting your bank stage... hope it works :)

    Oh! As I was typing this I got my order confirmation e-mail through. So it looks like the site is still working. Just verrrrry slowly. Stick with it guys :D

    got confirmation email but when i go into 'my account' it says i haven't placed any orders!

    edit: just spoke to customer services who confirmed my order had gone through and it would be showing in my account soon but would take a while as obviously the site's really busy at the moment
  • Mine appears to have gone through although it was v-e-r-y s-l-o-w! I have had an email confirmation of my order too. Didn't go mad, got some school uniform, shoes and summer skirts for my kids. All stuff that was needed anyway :)
    :D Skint but happy with my lovely family :D

    Hypnotherapy rocks :j
