    I've not been looking on this forum much so sorry if this is old news but anyone who's recently bought a Canon compact digital camera can claim a free 128mb flash card using the form here:

    http://www.mumplusone.com/site/voucher.php?v=870

    It states you need buy from your local dealer but I bought my Ixus400 online from somewhere miles away and sent a scan of the reciept and 2 weeks later a brand new 128mb SanDisk CF card landed on my doorstep. Something for nothing...can't complain!

    I bought my Ixus 400 online from the US (Powershot 400 there). D'you think they'd accept a US receipt?

    There's only one way to find out! Send off your receipt - if they do accept it then you'll get your card, if they don't you won't!

    Not recieved mine yet but only sent the form off last Monday. Hopefully I'll get mine in the next week or two. And if I don't ever get one all I'll have wasted is the price of a 1st class stamp so won't be worried...

    I've heard that some people waited nearly 5 weeks for it to arrive so I'm guessing delivery times depend on their stock.

    How long is the offer on for and does it apply to new purchases as those that have just been bough and wouldn’t the memory be better given when you buy the camera than having to wait for it?

    I was mate, when i held it i just never liked the feel of it. So i tried the S1 and i really liked it. I'm well happy, the zoom and the pictures are fantastic.

    Hi,

    My first post so excuse me if its a dumb question....

    I will be buying the Canon A80, probably get Jessops to price match it :)

    I missed the Argos offer (free 128 mem) as mentioned in an earlier thread so was pleased to find this one :)

    My question is this...

    Do you have to register on the mumplusone website to get the deal and/or print the voucher?

    I followed the link given earlier in this thread and when I select 'print' on the voucher, adobe opens up but only the top half of the voucher is there.
    Will all of the voucher appear if I register with mumplusone.

    Or do I have to have a 3rd child just to get a free mem stick !!! ;-)

    Cheers for any help

    Hi The Skipper - welcome to the Forum. They are a happy and knowledgable bunch here - only too pleased to help.

    I tried printing from the Adobe and like you only got half the sheet but then I printed off the url page and obtained the voucher that way.

    Nice, I like 'things A/V', looks like a nice forum :)

    Thanks for the tip about the voucher, I was going to do that but a bit blurry, didn't know whether that was acceptable. Cheers.

    When you sent the voucher off thouhg, was you registered with Mumplus one or is there no need for that?

    Cheers again,

    Skip

    ps I am off to Jessops now to barter the A80 :)

    Hi Skipper

    Does the Jessops price match apply to Internet prices as well as other in-town dealers?

    How do I go about it? Will they accept a printout of the spec with the price on?

    Ta
