      Only free from a landline, I suspect most Price-Drop viewers will only have a mobile.

      They were told not to have guide prices years ago now they are trying it again under a different guise...they are just heading for more trouble with the ASA.

      Hi all,
      Having not watched Price-Drop for a couple of days, its called having a life (well a bit of one at least), thought I would just flick over, er what have they done? 'the brash' has just explained what the format is and posed it as a 'gameshow' format. I mean if you want 'the tat' in the first place then surely you should be able to get it, and not be told 'sorry you can't have it' because it has gone below this 'mythical' reserve price. As others have said surely this is bordering on being 'illegal' in the normal sense of retail shopping? I suppose though they will have sorted it out with their 'legal department', well the 16 year old trainee that probably passes of as their legal department!
      As others have also said, the presenters are clearly uncomfortable, the 10 minutes I watched I don't think anyone watched even phoned through. Just when you think think they can't sink any lower.....!

      I think you may find they have several more LOWER floors to go before they reach rock bottom, but they seem to be heading downward at a very fast pace - long may it continue. Yaaaaaay.
      Why are we still watching this tripe? Busiest part of the show, (SHOW?... Ha), meltdown, web, baskets, right. I will resist, must resist, Oooooooh boy do I need a holiday!
      I never drink alcohol before 1 pm, surely it must be 1 pm somewhere in the World. Cheers!

      most things seem to be selling out now even with higher quantities so some on another forum have suggested maybe they are helping the quantity along themselves so for about 90 minutes I watched the buyers, have a read and see what you think, When we used to buy it was very rare to buy more than 1 item at once, some people below have tried to buy 3, 4 or 5 items in the 90ish minutes I watched
