12.2.1. Fans of boffer.co.uk say it’s changed their lives – or, at least, changed their daily schedules. Each night at 11:59pm, one deal will be put online with an attention-grabbing price tag. This offer will either last until 11:59 the next night, or until it has sold out. The site buys up bankrupt, overstock, clearance and closeout consumer electronics products, and then sells it to you. The real draw is when the site holds a ‘Boffer Off’ – this means that as soon as an item sells out, it will be replaced instantly for up to 72 hours or until the stock runs out.
