    Hi,

    I am trying to purchase the Samsung PS50C680 offer (with 3D blu ray player, 2 pairs of glasses and the Shrek 3D Blu Rays) on the Currys website right now, but it says that it is not available for home delivery? Is this just at the moment or has the offer never been available for delivery?

    I am able to reserve the items and collect them in store, but i am afraid the Quidco cashback and £60 off offer won't be available if i do this?

    Has anybody on here reserved and collected and had the offer work?

    Any help will be appreciated as the offer runs out on the 30th...

    Thanks

    I had this problem, after phoning currys 3 times I finally got to the bottom of it. Basically, even though it is apparently 'in stock' for home delivery your nearest warehouse does not have any. I gave up- ordered elsewhere.

    I reserved and collected but only got the £60 off once i mentioned it, not the quidco. They were trying to fob me off at first claiming they knew nothing of the whole deal! and then i had to prove to them on their own website that i could get £60 off. So got it all for £838 minus the quidco but still absolutely delighted with what i have, the TV is stunning in both 3d and 2d, and that compared to my 2 pioneer 5090's (phil & grant)

    Cheers mate, think I'll reserve and go down and try and get the £60 off over the counter by proving i could have got it online if they had it in stock for delivery

    Yes you'll be fine, a little more info on what actually happened..........

    First of all i made sure they had all of the parts in stock to take home that day, their sales computers are internet enabled so the bloke let me literally log into the currys website, put the 60POUND code in to show him that it was viable, he showed the manager and he was was like "yes of course, why are you even bothering to show me, let them have the deal!" then...... they bought all the gear out on a little trailer with one triangular box containing glasses, i asked "are there two pairs in there like the deal says" the man replied, "we think so" so i opened the box once payment went through and there was only one pair of glasses.................. so.... the guy went to the store room and got another set, it was only then his quick viewing workmate noticed a tiny sticker on the box saying containing one pair of glasses. So, i nearly got away with three pairs, bare that in mind if it happens the same way for you and cover all angles of the box!!! Its not stealing when they don't even know what they are selling you.....:D

    I'd be surprised if comet match Curry's price with the £60 discount.

    That runs out tonight by the way....

    Pretty sure (90%....) that it's the chrome cross stand. Which in all honesty doesn't look too bad, albeit feels a bit "plasticy" :p

    i didnt know about currys 60 quid discount until now but when you consider the 3 pairs you get at comet from word go it amounts to the same when considering the cost of 3d glasses and it seems that comets offer is going to run longer than currys 60 quid off offer considering it ends in just a few hours. i guess currys offer just comes down to 1, how many glasses you need and 2, if you got the cash in the bank right now. me personally only need two pairs most of the time but ofetn have 2+ people round and watch a film. my plan is to buy two pairs of the rechargable glasses and just use the 3 free pairs for the times i have people over.

    and yes guys it does come with the 4 legged chrome stand for defo

    Go via quidco and you get 3% cash back too and it also gives you the code for the £60 off too

    It's actually 60POUND and it's put in during the checkout process. Bought mine earlier today for £838 and then I got 3% quidco off that too.....

    Strange...I got just past the discount code part and then it looks like they have now taken the tv bundle off the site:rolleyes:

    Just my luck considering i've only just today sold my 46" samsung LED and today is the last day of the offer:suicide:

    Maybe because everyone is buying them tv's:D

    I've tried 3 times now with 2 different cards and it just sends me back to the payment page...If it doesn't work i shall ring them tomorrow and make sure they give me the discount due to the website being so crap!:lesson:

    Just a thought..... This happened to me and it was due to my card not being registered for secure payment..... Once I did this allows good and payment was accepted

    Good luck

    Hi all, long time lurker and very infrequent poster here. Been reading everything there is to read about this tv and this morning finally decided to pull the trigger. Only to find the offer ran out last night :(
    Well I thought I'd actually log on and spread the good news - this offer is now extended to the 7th December! :D

    That's correct.
    Although with Currys you only get 2 pairs of glasses, comet are £899 for the same deal but with 3 pairs so both pretty much the same value, I'm off out this afternoon to play one off agaisnt the other :smashin:
