Filofax Germany

Filofax is 90 years old this year.... for 9 days they have 90 products available for €9 each... ends 15 September 2011

See this page for details: http://www.filofax.de/store/page.asp?id=163

Delivery available within the EU or contact someone in the EU who will accept your delivery and post it on.

These prices are too good to miss.......

Note it appears that although all colours are shown... on some models only some colours are priced at €9 which is a little bit naughty of them.

Tip: Keep each order below €25 and you only pay the lower postage price, so split your orders if they are going to be above the €25 break point.

Also if you are in UK put '0' in the postcode and put your real postcode as part of your address

  1. Steve!!!! What are you trying to do to us?! LOL! I've just picked up an A4, an A5 and a personal, plus shipping to the UK for £36.99. Gutted I paid £21 for a second-hand sunflower piazza on eBay just the other day and they're selling them for €9 on the German website.

    Thanks for the heads up, though! I guess my "frugal" month of not buying anything I don't really need will start tomorrow ;-)

  3. Do they post to England then? I can't find it in the country list....my German was never gut!

  4. Sally England is EU... Yes...

    It's ok they have forgiven us for that football match in 1966 I think ;-)

  5. I asked for that one Steve....I speak fluent Spanish but NO German....am having real difficulty with the checkout, must be an omen!

  6. Cheat... Google Chrome or
    Look at the checkout on the UK site.. it will be the same. All the servers are in Burgess Hill for all the different sites...

  7. I am getting there....slowly! It is asking me to enter only digits in the postcode bit though :(

    ReplyDelete
  8. Sally - there's nowhere to put a postcode in. I ended up putting a "0" in the postcode box and then town and county in the other box. Bad design not to have country specific postcode fields but I'm hoping the address will be sufficient to get to me!!!

    For others interested, postage to the UK is €15.

  9. Thanks, Babs, I have fiddled around with it and done the same. Postage depends on how much you spend. I spent 18 euros and it was 4.50. I added another filo and the postage went up to 15. I am dithering now....do I or don't I???? Was saving for a Malden, this kind of defeats the object!

    But what FAB bargains! What have you all bought so far?

  10. Split your order, keep each order below €25 each time and you only pay the lower postage each time???

  11. Steve!
    This is one post that got me pop out! LOL!
    Contacting a friend who might be in Germany now, cross the fingers she still is there. Oh Why won't they ship to US?
    Thanks a lot for the headsup of such fab bargain!
    Love ya Mr. Filofax!

  12. wow this is brilliant!! I bought a personal Topaz and an A5 Rose Finchley! :D oh how exciting!! I can't wait until they arrive! I think the A5 will replace my Finsbury as my dissertation planner because it has broken rings. thanks so much for this Steve! I will post about it on my blog :D

  13. Thanks Steve, I think I have just sorted my first Christmas presents (including my own ;) )

    ReplyDelete
  14. Omg - I had planned on buying my first Filofax during my holiday in Scotland two weeks from now because they are usually much cheaper in the Uk than here in Germany- but now I got six! instead of one from the money I had saved up and I've already got 2 christmas presents
    thanks so much for sharing :)

  15. Ordered an A5 Finchley. Couldn't resist 13.50 euros!!! How long does everyone think they'll take to arrive in UK? Couple of weeks? Thanks Steve, just saved me about £60 - I was looking at an A5 aqua finsbury before seeing your post :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. OMG! I knew there was a reason why I felt like checking Philofaxy before going to bed...I just got a personal maroon Panama and the A5 rose Finchley, for 22,50 including shipping to Spain.

    So that settles my indecision problem between trying a personal or A5 for work/study. I can't wait to get my hands on them and trying those inserts, specially the cotton cream paper. I hope they come with all the trimmings, regardless of the bargain price.

    Thank you so much for being always en garde!

    1. I know you posted this in 2011 but I recently ordered a personal Panama on ebay and was wondering if you could tell me more about your panama. What you liked, what you didn't....it's hard to find much about the Panama, so I'm curious. Also do you like the personal size better or your A5? Thanks

  17. Being in the US is such a bummer for so many reasons :(

    Not having an overseas connection just adds insult to injury . . .

  18. I almost didn't order because of the UK postcode thing! glad I checked back here to see what you guys had done.
    Looks like the A5 finchley is popular, I ordered one too! partially because I have a Personal Finchley in Rose also :) Also couldn't resist the mini Baroque, I have no use for a mini but the embossing looks so beautiful on the inside!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh my, this blog is bad for my VISA. I might have to get one of those red Panamas with gold rings. The tought of having an A5 and using it as a recipie binder just popped into my head as well.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thanks for the info, Steve. I've just saved over €350!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Just got some great bargains, thanks steve! :)
    However I now have more Filofaxes than I need - oops!
    I've bought a personal size topaz, but not sure if the ring size is going to be too big for my needs or not... I currently use a slimline finsbury, perfect size but I find the organiser itself a little unispiring to look at.
    I have also bought an A5 finchley - I don't even need an A5 but it was too much of a steal to pass up! I'm sure I will find a use (has anyone got any interesting uses for their A5's??????)

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Laurla - I now have 3 A5s. One I use as a journal for my 101 Things to do in 1,001 Days project. My new Rose Finchley will become my recipe Filo (as it's inexpensive enough not to have to worry about splashes and splodges in the kitchen!) and my Raspberry Finchley which was my recipe filo I'm going to use either as a happiness journal if I decide to do one, or as a 10 year journal which I've been thinking of doing for a while - mainly for my son to look back on.

  23. Just to say that there are quite a few binders no longer listed on the German offer site (such as the Finchley A5). I guess they're starting to run out.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow. It looks like the A5 finchley in Rose is popular. I ordered one last night for my uni notes and a pocket tropic in bamboo for a Christmas present. I looked this morning on the uk website, and this same one is £44 in the sale!! Bargain.
    It is looking like uk Filofax isn't going to be doing anything like this.
    Does anyone know roughly of delivery times from Germany?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Okay, I REALLY hate the fact that work was manic yesterday and I ended up SO exhausted that for ONCE (ONCE!!!) I didn't check the Philofaxy blog when I got in, AND I MISSED OUT ON A5 FINCHLEYS FOR 9 EUROS.

    Wailing and gnashing of teeth sounds....

    All that's on there now are zillions of pockets and minis....


    aaaaaaggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've just been back on there and couldn't believe how little there was left. Wonder how muchof it is coming to us????

    ReplyDelete
  27. @ babs: was thinking of using mine for recipies too, we'll have to compare sheets once they are set up hehe :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh what? I too missed the posting last night.

    A big thank you to Thomas for drawing my attention to this amazing sale this morning though.

    I was straight on to a friend in Australia this morning and ordering for the both of us.

    I also had the post code problem and put 0000. In the 'company name' box I put my U.K. postcode.

    I hate to admit but it was tricky trying to figure out what 'United Kingdom' was in German. (As Steve knows I had the same problem ordering from France) :p

    Quite a long process copying and pasting into Google translate.

    Luckily for me I only have to pay half the postage. :-)

  29. I went a bit overboard and picked up 5...but a bargain for €60!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I ended ordering a total of three and a special edition purse :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Just got an e-mail from Filofax Germany saying that DHL is handling the delivery and I will get it in 1 to 3 business days, so all of us should be getting our goodies early next week!!!

    That is awesome that they are using courier service and not regular mail. Great Filofax service!

    ReplyDelete
  32. That is fantastic news. Thanx for letting us know!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, I was a little late to this party - however I have bought the special edition accessories case and purse for Christmas presents for others. In fairness I really don't need any more binders - so well done to those of you who did need binders and got a great bargain.

  34. I bought some stuff on Saturday but haven't had a conformation email or anything. It's not showing the money coming out of my paypal account either. Is this normal or does it look like it hasn't gone through? If so I'm gutted because what I had ordered has all sold out now :(

    ReplyDelete
  35. Cat,I made a second purchase on Saturday too. I haven't received the second e-mail with the tracking number for the package, like I got on the first purchase on thursday. Neither of the charges show on my card statement. ?????

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well I guess there's some confidence in it not only being me... But I will be sooo devistated because I bought some presents for my family as well as a few treats for me... Even though I had missed out on some of the better offers there were still quite a few good ones left then. Now there's hardly anything. Do you think there's any way we can contact them?

    ReplyDelete
  37. i put an order in on wed night and one on thurdsay morning. the money only went out of my account yesterday if that is any help?? xx
    :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oooh that is a help, but did you get a conformation email or anything? Because I have heard absolutely nothing :(

    ReplyDelete
  39. I got the automated email saying what I had ordered both times. And the emails from paypal saying how much. I have heard nothing else at all. Xx

    ReplyDelete
  40. Boo I got no automated email... Worried it hasn't gone through :(

    ReplyDelete
  41. I ordered Thursday afternoon, and just received my email with tracking information...so there might be hope yet for people

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've just had one of my payments from 8th September refunded as the item is not available :o(

    ReplyDelete
  43. I also ordered Wednesday night and received my Personal Piazza and Pocket Panama today. Never received a dispatch note!
    It appears that orders have not been processed in chronological order. Somebody ordered later than me and did receive the A5 Finchley. If you haven't received anything yet, there's still hope ;-)

    Also, the only items that were oversold were the A5 Finchley and the Finsbury wallet. All other items were plenty available (according to the lady at Filofax DE) and will be delivered.

    If you have received a refund (this is done through Paypal), please check if this effects your postage costs. In my case it would have meant paying 4.50 instead of the paid 15.00 Euro postage. You need to contact Filofax directly (through email or phone) to ask for a shipping refund, because this is not done automatically! They are very willing to cooperate though.

  44. Thanks from me as well for letting us know that it was happening.
    Have secured a Finchley Pocket size in Teal & an A5 Graphic Zip to upgrade/back up my intended move to Pocket Filo with an A5 as a Master.
    I'd never have found about it without the wonderfull post, and hoping they both arrive (soon!)
    Kind regards to all
