    Just ordered my copy from Play.com.

    I thought I had missed another new book, but then realised it's not due out until next December. So that's sorted some Christmas presents for 2008.

    Technically the book launches on the 10 Jan; but there is stock out there already. Amazon's first tranch has probably gone, but it should have another int he next day or so. I wanted MoneySavers to hear about the book first.

    Just ordered this from play.com. I'm not much of a bookworm to be honest, but have ordered the book simply because its the least I can do (as well as buying the download song and clicking the links with an asterisk next to them) to support MSE, as this site has saved me, quite literally, thousands. You never know, I might even read it!
    So, Mr Martin Lewis, a very big thank-you, sir. I'm most appreciative and grateful (and I know I speak for thousands of others on this outstanding website) for all the effort you put into saving us mon£y

    Just ordered it from Play via Quidco.
    I had never even heard of cashback sites before finding MSE, but have 'gained' 269 since June 2007, from purchases I would have made anyway. Thank you, Martin!

    I've ordered 2 lots of 2 of Martins Books from Amazon for less than a Tenner!!!

    2 for Me and 2 for my Son, who is a MSE user, and also thinks that Martin should by Knighted!
    I got free delivery too as I ordered things for over 15.00 in the same order, and chose SUPER SAVER DELIVERY ON ALL!

    I just ordered it from Amazon and noticed that the price has gone down to 3.44, so anyone who ordered it for 3.49 within the last 30 days can get the difference back! Not much, admittedly, but hey, look out for the pennies and all that!

    quick query
    Thinking of buying this as I already have the money diet book, just wondering whether or not there are any major differences between the two, or is this just the same excellent advice but re-hashed?

    Can anyone help?

    I placed an order with Play.com on 27th Jan and it still says "order processing" which means payment being processed. It says the book is in stock .... its annoying

    one thing it mentioned is that many people just look at the items at eye level in the supermarket (and therefore they put all the dear/premium stuff there).

    i thought to myself 'but surely, everyone looks up and down the shelf to get what they want/the cheapest/best deal?'

    well, i was in asda and had decided on my kelloggs HN cornflakes 750g for 2.00 from bottom shelf. meanwhile 2 people just came and picked off a box off the middle shelf without even looking at ANY price - they paid 1.96 for 500g!

    i thought about saying something.......
