PostSubject: Argh.....what a carry on...   Mon Aug 24, 2009 8:59 am

Just want to let out my annoyance.

For a while I've wanted the complete set of Carry on Films (sad, I know, but there you go!), and once before I was saving up until I had enough Amazon vouchers from dooyoo to be able to get it. Then literally a couple of days before I'd received them the price shot up dramatically.

Anyway, thought I'd try again, and the complete set has been £57 odd for months and months. I have £20 of vouchers from elsewhere, and will have £40 from dooyoo very shortly. And then I went onto Amazon today to find out it's now more than £80. And, if it's like last time it'll stay like that for months and if anything go even higher.

So, I'll just have to buy some other stuff......humph.

Can't you get the payment in cash and then see if you can find it cheaper somewhere else?

That is so frustrating when that happens.

But you need to earn another tenner to get cash from dooyoo. Blimey it takes me four months to earn a tenner. Very Happy

Just a shame you can't use Amazon vouchers on Amazon Marketplace, otherwise I wouldn't have to wait....

I've never got a cheque before, I generally cash out for Amazon vouchers ASAP, on the thinking that dooyoo could end tomorrow, and I'd be fuming if I lost £49.99! The only reason I haven't cashed out this time is that if I had a £20 Amazon voucher I'd have spent it on something else....although saying that my list is generally getting shorter now, there's not really a great deal of stuff I want - I just want to get pregnant, and then I can start buying baby things!
