HotUKDeals Of The Day - Wednesday 18th May

18 May 2011

hukd_logob1 We like to think that we know our readers inside out. Almost to a man/woman, they’re hugely in favour of looking at stuff that is far away, posh chocolates and getting value for money phone calls from a network provider with a ridiculous name.

With all of that in mind, we’ve scoured HotUKDeals today and we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised…

940429_1We all know that looking at stuff can be a lot of fun – but what if stuff is slightly too far away to see properly? That’s when fights start and people end up in hospital. That’s essentially why binoculars were invented.

You can avoid those kinds of skirmishes and violent attacks by investing in a decent set of binoculars – like this pair, boasting 8x21 MCF stats (no, us neither) and down from £20 RRP to only £4.95. You’ll be looking at all kinds of stuff once you’ve got these.

940205_1Stuff like, erm, big boxes of Ferrero Rocher, with 24 of the sumptuous, delicious chocs in them for just £2.49. Perfect if you’re a PA for an ambassador or just a fat bastard who likes eating them while watching The Jeremy Kyle Show of a morning.

There’s been some chin-stroking debate over on HotUKDeals about the best before dates on these things, but if unless the best before date expires a few hours after you get them out of the shop, we can’t see why that would need to be an issue.

940360_1Finally, a slightly different way to get better value for your mobile phone use, with the latest ‘goody bag’ offer from O2-owned service provider giffgaff. They say they’re ‘the mobile network run by you’ but we don’t think that involves having to power the thing by pedalling a bicycle non-stop for five hours a day. Perhaps a giffgaff customer could advise.

Anyhoo, giffgaff’s latest goody bag sees you get 800 minutes of talk time, unlimited texts and ‘truly unlimited’ data along with free giffgaff-to-giffgaff calls for only £20 a month. Nothing in the small print about powering it all yourself. Which is a huge relief.
