March 13th 2017

When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Discount Codes

Post by dino » Tue Mar 15, 2011 1:44 pm

This post by Medic gave me the idea: http://forums.geocachingireland.com/vie ... 552#p50552

Anyone else got any codes they would like to share?
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

Be careful with Pixmania - a lot of people have had pretty bad experiences with them in the past. Dreadful Customer Service.

Really? That's interesting, I've bought a good few things from them and had no problems, so can't comment on the customer service angle if you do have a problem.

Pixmania - I've dealt with them on and off over the years and the only mistake they ever made was to send me a camera I didn't order (along with stuff I did). Worth about €200 and didn't charge me. :mrgreen:

I bought a camera off them, no problems, so no need for customer support.
I then bought a second camera, second hand off someone, (unwanted gift), still no problems so no need for customer support.
So top marks for me for customer support!

I will say though that they are a bit sneaky with the 'platinum assurance' which automatically adds to your order.
You need to muck about to cancel it.

Not that it matters, but FYI, they are French and were (AFAIK) taken over by DSG aka Dixons/Currys.

I can confirm they are part of DSG who are the parent company of PC World and Currys among others. We're not renowned for customer support when you have a problem but it's getting an awful lot better.

This is a website which I would regularly check, they carry most of the codes and best deals around the UK, but it can be seriously bad for your wealth as you tend to buy things because they are cheap rather than need. :oops: did I really buy another TV #-o
