Currys down with ridiculous website queue

Earlier on we told you about the big problems that Tesco were having with their website and now we can see that Currys are feeling the heat as well. Currys website is down too, but with consumers even more frustrated due to a queue system that the retailer has set up.

We just had a look for ourselves and were placed in Curry’s website queue like so many others. Initially our quoted time was ’10 minutes’ until we were able to access the website – on the supposed busiest shopping day of the year, remember.

However, imagine our surprise when this 10 minutes estimation magically transformed into ‘more than an hour’. We can just picture most of you experiencing the same problems and it is hard to understand why Curry couldn’t have foreseen the extra traffic coming their way.


At the time of writing this, we still cannot access the website as it automatically redirects to the queue process. Even worse, refreshing the page will place you further down the queue – not exactly how many UK shoppers wanted to spend the early hours of Friday morning is it?

Let us know your thoughts on this – have you managed to beat Curry’s mighty queue or are you still in line? We feel for you.
