This has been mentioned a few times by readers of this site, but at present, with the shortage on Humax PVR’s, it seems to best solution is to pre-order from Maplin, and save some money at the same time.
This is what you need to do:
Step 1 – Visit Maplin and click on the “Subscribe and save up to £25 off your order” in the top right corner.
Step 2 – Register an account and sign up for the newsletter…or sign up for the newsletter only.
Step 3 – Wait a few days for the newsletter to arrive via email, which will include a 20 digit code.
Step 4 – Add the Humax PVR to your basket, but because the £25 discount only applies on £300 orders or more (the PVR is £299.99), add this Radial Electrolytic Capacitors which we believe is the cheapest item at just 0.11p.
Step 5 – Wait for Maplin to process your order, and save yourself £25 (well, £24.89!!!).
Total price: £275.10
Given that obtaining stock is so difficult at the moment, why not at least pre-order and save yourself some money? Maplin have so far been honouring the orders within the time-scale indicated.
