Probably just a reminder, especially with the new courier.

It's an amendment due to the new courier and the new way of people qualifying.

It's a pretty good plan to be honest, need a new PSU and the free shipping means its worth buying from OcUK even if the product is a few quid cheaper elsewhere.

Please read the FAQ regarding signature sizes.

Well it's mildly annoying as the City Link Cambridge depot is close to my office.

But it's all good because the DHL Cambridge office is 2 minutes by car away too .

How is this actually checked? Is there some software in the cart that checks the forum user database?

No.

Spie employs a magical internet fairy to work those details out.

as long as other places don't have free shipping

i'll be using ocuk a lot more due to the offer though. when buying items that total around £100, free shipping is a real dangling carrot

You're pretty awesome Spie. I know it sounds like a bit of a suck-up, but people should remember that we're apparently in a pretty big economic downturn, and not many businesses at all have the ability to do things like this.

Excellent news.

Will free items be offered to members who have been registered for over 60 months and have made at least 1500 posts?

Nah, just checked with a recent order, still seems to be approx the same price as it was with the 50% Citylink offer.

And thus Streeteh blew more of his money buying stuff from OcUK.

Gits.
