It would be nice if they'd let me buy the books I want to buy. But since I live in the US, I can't, so this does me no good.

I got their promotional email too, but I can't access anything beyond the front page. I get a "system error" message. Is all of UK trying to buy simultaneously?

It did work, honest! But yeah, it's down for me too now, once it's back, I think I may end up going on a spending spree, so much for will power!

That's exactly what I was intending to do (and a thousand others probably), if only the site would let me!

It is working now, but slowwwwwwlyyyy.
[edit]: No, down again. I may have to try after midnight... The things we do for cheaper ebooks....

Good news as I'm sure the LOTR trilogy was £13.99 when I looked a few days ago, now it's just over £9 so I shall definitely be getting that one later.

Curse you for making me spend money <shakes fist>.

Hooray for reasonable UK prices if just briefly.

I just came on to post this but you beat me to it

Shame I got a load of gift cards for Waterstones & not WH Smith for Crimbo. Will still check it out though.

That can happen as you get older

Seriously though - it appears to be working OK now for me.

If it's any consolation, we have the same problem with American stores.

I'm being prevented from giving them my money now due to geographic restrictions. What kind of publishing restrictions are there between the UK and Ireland that they have reason to be doing that to me?
