Watching this process reminds me of an old advert for EDS, check it out on Youtube.



Jean, you have my sympathies, try cats next time, it has to be easier than this lot!!

Hi All

Okay I admit defeat - I've failed in getting together a bulk buy on RIBnet

Thanks to all that supported the idea and of course to Martin for working so hard to get a good deal together for us.

However I can't match this:

Item number: 110480504445

Thanks to C2RIBs for the link - some things to be aware of:

1. He has agreed to accept a Best Offer of 140 + postage

2. He has yet to confirm if they are UK stock

3. He has yet to confirm if they come with a warranty (I doubt it)

Thanks again all - have really enjoyed making my lists

Jxx

It was a good effort, I would add the clapping smiley but it would look cheesy.

The moral of the story is, I think, that it takes a lot of effort to save the last tenner. At one point there were a dozen people ready to buy what is without doubt one of the finest bits of safety kit invented:-

Small,
Easy to use,
Long dormant life,
Effective,
Global coverage,
etc etc

The last selling point is "good value" with a RRP of 260 quid these things are selling faster than McMurdo can make them AND they are yet to be made available is several big countries.

With the benefit of hind sight I would have gone for the MSS deal of 189 all inc. Maybe they could have been cajoled into giving away a free posing pouch? Who knows.

Anyway, well done to all concerned. To the other retailers, to the people who committed to buy and most of all to KY.

I doubt forum bulk-buys will ever work, but this one came pretty close.

Thank you

KY- despite the sometimes colourful responses about your lists, it took some enormous effort and having been just a participant in this and a previous long purchase trial for a waterproof phone (well done again Malthouse).

Yes I took the bait of fleabay offer and will watch for the item hoping all is well as previous buyers seem happy with seller. I was happy with all your work and would pay tax if it occurred but easy for me as I can reclaim VAT.
So I will thank you publically for your efforts and spirit to get everyone a great deal. Dont be disheartened , I believe most of us really did appreciate it. Ian
