    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.

    Why does it exclude the Highlands and Islands?

    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.
