Filofax Sweden - 90SEK Sale


You might remember a certain sale by Filofax Germany a couple of months ago that caused a slight stir... well with thanks to Filomaniac for pointing it out, Filofax Sweden have got a similar sale on at the moment.

90 years, 90 products until 9 December, for 90 SEK... which is less than £8.50 at current exchange rates....

And this marvellous sale is..... here... whoosh and you all dashed off to look!

  5. how much is the postage? I can't figure it out? :(

  6. Whoops - me too. I ordered the red Amazon purse, a purple A5 finchley and an interesting week to view vertical pocket diary with appointment times. Didn't want to be greedy and didn't need a lot. I've fancied an A5 purple finchley for some time now.

  7. My postage was around 50krona. The total was 305 Krona which according to an online converter was around £28 - £29. So according to that the postage was very reasonable.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Think postage for me was around 50 krona too

    ReplyDelete
  9. Whoosh off I went and ordered my mum's Christmas present and got something for myself with some of the money I've saved.

  10. So when is the US going to do a sale like this? That's what I want to know...

    I guess I should go look at the sale just in case!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I just clicked "order" on an imperial purple personal Finchley!! This is my first time ever ordering from a non-US site, I believe. My shipping was 100Kr, so about $15-16 US I think. My total order is going to come to over $30 US I think, but it's still half the price of the Finchley from the US site.

  12. *ahem* ordered *ahem* :o)

    What WILL hubby say...... :oS

    ReplyDelete
  13. Also, thank goodness for Google Translate. It made it possible for me to order!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I just ordered the personal finchley in purple. My filofax family has grown from zero to 3 in a matter of months!

    ReplyDelete
  15. @bluebonnetreads - I got the personal finchley too, and am also in the US. According to the conversion calculator the total price is just under $30.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh well... I wasn't going to ... but then the A5 finchley in purple just beckoned me... I have a jade green one I use for work, but I'm going off the colour (I did love it but it now seems insipid..?)
    And at that price...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh and some side opening plastic pockets (not seen them in the UK).

    ReplyDelete
  18. How do you get the filos delivered to the UK - am filling in the shipping information at the moment & there doesn't seem to be an option for England...

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Becca
    after filling in the zip code (post code) choose UK on the drop down menu underneath.

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Amanda from Paper, Pens and Ink - thanks for helping me, but there doesn't seem to be an option for UK. Does that mean I've registered wrongly on the Swedish website?

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Becca
    Ooo. I didn't have to register at all... other than my email address which wasn't specifically UK. UK was in an odd place on the drop-down menu and I did have Google-translate on.
    According to an online translate thingy, United Kingdom is
    Förenade kingdowm
    if that helps???
    Hope you get there soon!

  22. Sticks fingers in ears (imagine Golum in Lord of the Rings), rocks backward and forwards stating "I'm not listening" repeatedly.

  23. But you are reading.... HH..

    Steve

    ReplyDelete
  24. Becca - you managed to complete your order yet??

    ReplyDelete
  25. Seemed like a good opportunity to buy my first A4 version.

    ReplyDelete
  26. See, I got some from there sale a few weeks ago, and now I'm looking again - must stop... but the A5 Finchley is sooo tempting (although I won't be allowed to use it as I have the personal in the same colour already...) and the slate personal domino... it's a good job I have banned myself from buying any pockets or minis...

    ReplyDelete
  27. So many sales and Filofaxes I'm getting confused - it was the Denmark one last time!!! I get so excited seeing bargain FFs that I get all confused :o)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hm. A purple A5 Finchley just "fell" into my basket...Imagine that...

    Can't beat the price though. Paypal calcluated it to 130 Norwegian Kroner(22-23USD)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thank you for the info :o)
    The A5 Finchley seems popular so I hope I'm lucky this time.

    ReplyDelete
  30. @Amanda - yes I did thank you!! Finally figured it all out, the A5 Finchley is on its way (hopefully!).

    ReplyDelete
  31. I just ordered a small black Amazona purse, the black travel wallet and a red Domino A4 zip for uni next year. I very nearly bought yet another filofax but I know I won't use any other filo than my Personal Almond Amazona so I resisted :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm another one who bought an A5 purple finchley! Let's hope they don't cancel it as soon as they see I'm in Australia!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've been yearning for a Crimson pocket Malden, to try as a wallet.... but it's not there!!! Phew!!! Saves pennies. Any good as a wallet purse folks????? Anyone tried it for that use??? Have a pocket Urban for that at the mo, but a crimson Malden is my dream boat Filofax!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hope I get what I ordered! Love that Imperial Purple.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I ordered a personal Finchley and an A5 Finchley, both in purple! They'll be my first Finchleys!(hopefully~)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Resistance was futile!!! My friend and I have just ordered 10 items at the total price of 800SEK including delivery to Switzerland - bargain. I can't wait for them to arrive, and yes, I did succumb to the A5 Finchley :o)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I see the A5 Finchley is gone from the site. I guess we cleared their stock. :-D

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes, the A5 Finchley seems popular. Lets hope that their stock levels reflect on the site and that there are not a lot of disappointed people like with the German sale.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I can't believe I nearly missed this!! Last night at around 00:20 I was browsing for xmas presents when I thought "ooo, I'll just have a look on philofaxy before bed!" I've been checking the site daily to see when the next 9euro sale arrived. I bolted to the swedish site and saw the beautiful imperial purple finchleys. I ordered 2 A5's - one for myself and one for a friend - and I resisted the personal one because I know my partner has already bought one for me for xmas.
    I look this morning and they are gone. THANK YOU Steve for bringing us these amazing savings!! x

    ReplyDelete
  40. Just had an email to say the A5 Finchley is out of stock :o( but they are sending the rest of my order - Personal Finchley :o)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I also got the out of stock email for the A5 finchley. I feel like a sad panda now. The rest will be send, though!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've also had an email saying that I won't be receiving my Finchley as they are out of stock... Oh well!

    ReplyDelete
  43. @Femke
    I think you placed your order a while before me too. It looks like they ran out of A5 Finchley's very quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Me too - I have cancelled the rest as well (some side-opening plastic pockets) as the P+P for just them is too much.
    Boo!
    I put my order in fairly early!
    Boo!

    ReplyDelete
  45. @fluffyferret I thought I was quite fast with ordering, but sadly not fast enough. I was looking forward to another A5, but alas.

    ReplyDelete
  46. What time did everyone order? Mine was around 00:15 last night. The times on the posts are wrong... I haven't had an email yet saying they aren't sending my order. I did only order 2 A5 finchleys... I'll be gutted if they don't arrive :(

    ReplyDelete
  47. Also got an email saying the personal Finchely was sold out as well :(

    ReplyDelete
  48. Deeji, I ordered at 6.30pm last night.

    ReplyDelete
  49. :(:(:( I've emailed them. It can't hurt to send a begging letter I s'pose. I did only order those two, so they may be nice to me... maybe..

    ReplyDelete
  50. I was first to comment on this post and had ordered before the post was put on. I have had the dreaded Email cancelling my A5 finchley. Very annoyed as my German finchley got cancelled too :(

    ReplyDelete
  51. Seems like the demand was higher than they expected. The other stuff I ordered it still on the website.

    ReplyDelete
  52. On the regular Filofax site, the personal Finchley is now listed at its regular price, sans imperial purple...Hopefully if anyone ordered a color besides that they will still be getting it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Also just received an email cancelling my A5 finchley......

    ReplyDelete
  54. Of course they didn't expect so many orders. They are not aware of Philofaxy :o) Also they sent out the newsletter at 4 pm yesterday. I don't think they had so many of Finchleys on stock, so it was out within few hours.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Awwww, I also ordered the A5 Finchley. And only this morning, so I expect the cancellation mail in the morning. Shame, since I also missed the rose A5 in Germany.

    So, is Norway next? Or France?

    ReplyDelete
  56. I guess I'll be getting my email in the morning telling me that I haven't got the A5 Finchley after all...

    ReplyDelete
  57. I am so behind on this one... doubt it is even worth me looking now! Must get on these offers as soon as they are released!

    ReplyDelete
  58. For those wanting a Finchley Purple, they are on sale on the filofax.co.uk website plus on the cityorganiser.co.uk website (CO being cheaper). But not as cheap as the Swedish offer!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Just got the cancellation mail regarding the purple A5. Wasn't it the same thing when the German site held their sale? I wonder how many items of each they have on sale. 1?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Recieved an email saying my order was shipped. Ordered Finchleys in a5 & personal. But seeing many here got cancelled, I'll believe it when I see it. If I'm indeed lucky enough to get them, I'd probably get 2 of the 3 that they had in stock. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  61. @Sweetspot
    Hope they arrive safe and sound. When did you order?? You must have been first in that long, long queue!
    Lucky old thing!
    :-)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Got my cancellation email. No Finchley for me.

    ReplyDelete
  63. @Amanda,
    I did learn the news before this post came up. But I don't think I was the very first in queue. Which makes me totally doubtful. For all I know I could get 2 Graphics in the mail by mistake. ;-) If i do get them, must be the filofax fairies smiling on me. We'll see. I'll post here when I get the package.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Still waiting for a cancellation email....anyone else waiting

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'm still waiting. Strange seeing as though I ordered a lot later than many people :/

    ReplyDelete
  66. im still waiting for an email cancellation or otherwise

    ReplyDelete
  67. It is almost harder waiting to just find out. I would maybe have purchased a few different things on the website if I knew it would eventually get cancelled. But the items I wanted are gone now....so I will just keep waiting.

    ReplyDelete
  68. For those who haven't heard anything, I'd say no news is good news. I received emails from them because I had to make a change in my order. A nice gentleman was kind enough to inform me that my order was revised and shipped.
    Now let's sit tight and keep our fingers crossed. :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Am I the first to get my order? It arrived this morning - pretty good considering I only ordered on Monday. I honestly can't remember what time I ordered - I posted in here that I ordered around lunchtime, but my confirmation is timed at early evening. So not sure why I have been lucky. I ordered one A5 Finchley (Purple), one Amazona purse and one insert. I wonder if they are favouring those who only ordered one binder to spread the offers around? Or perhaps I was just lucky and got one of the last ones. I must say the Finchley is really lovely and comes with a full set of inserts (albiet Swedish, but no problem as it's obvious what they are).

    ReplyDelete
  70. @AlisonReeves - I'm soo glad you got your order through, I actually thought you cancelled it! I hope I get my finchley's, good to know they're efficient with postage... Bet it smells gorgeous!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  71. So Alison will now be dancing around the kitchen with her new Finchley singing Abba songs and planning trips to Ikea and looking at changing her car to a Volvo or a Saab....

    ReplyDelete
  72. *Reads back* Nevermind, that was Amanda who cancelled x

    ReplyDelete
  73. If they turn up one of mine will be a prezzi for a friend for xmas, did yours come in a gift box Alison like the ones from Germany? Or will I have to consider giving away one of mine? :( thanks x

    ReplyDelete
  74. @Steve :-) you know me so well!

    @Deeji - it came in a lovely proper box (not a sleeve)and tissue paper so would make an outstanding present. (Although you would have to love someone a lot to part with it!). Mine is the A5, so not sure if the personal will come with a box or not.

    I'm not sure if Filofax are consistent with boxes/sleeves though - I have an A5 Adelphi which came in a sleeve (from the conduit st shop) but I saw some personal Adelphi's in TK Maxx at the weekend which came in boxes! (Didn't purchase as I don't use that size).

    Good luck everyone with your deliveries.

    ReplyDelete
  75. @Alison
    sadly, just putting in an order for one filofax doesn't help... mine was cancelled and I had only ordered the purple finchley in A5 and some plastic pockets.
    Glad yours has arrived! And happy for everyone else who gets their order (but a bit peeved if they ordered after me!!)

    ReplyDelete
  76. I just got my Filofax order from Sweden! I'm suprised how quick they arrived in Germany! I'm so happy my Finchley family grew :D

    I'll hope anyone who hasn't a cancellation mail will receive a Finchley!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Well, I couldn't stand it any longer and called them (country code for Sweden is +46 - just sayin'). To my huuuuuuge surprise they told me I was "one of the lucky ones" who would receive the A5 Finchley, since they had shipped it yesterday. Huh? Although I'm absolutely thrilled (I did miss out on the German sale), I do feel guilty about the people who ordered way before me. I remember that it was the same in the German sale: someone who ordered later than me, still got their Finchley, and mine was cancelled.
    I think it would be fairer if they processed orders as they receive them.
    I paid with Paypal btw, don't know if that's a difference? Maybe PP payments arrive faster in their accounts?

    ReplyDelete
  78. Slightly off topic but seeing as though we're talking about A5's on here - does anyone know whether cotton cream diaries for the A5 exist? I can't find them anywhere which is a shame...
    Congrats Jotje, did you order more than one item? I wish I knew if mine was going to arrive. I have no dispatch email or cancellation but the money has still gone from my account... :/ x

    ReplyDelete
  79. HAPPY DAYS just called filofax sweden as i didnt receive a cancellation email or a dispatch email, apparently i got everything i ordered and has been sent to me already, i would recommend calling for anyone that is waiting to hear it literally takes 1 min phone number is 00 46 1920 59 20 from the uk just quote your order number

    ReplyDelete
  80. Okay... I am officially miffed...
    I ordered just one filofax, I paid with PayPal and I ordered fairly early.
    :-(
    Happy for everyone who is getting their order fulfilled, just miffed I am not a 'lucky one'.

  82. Still waiting to fnd out - may have to call them tomorrow. Fingers crossed for the Finchleys... looks like the Graphic, Dominos, Hearts should all be OK as they are still available on the site even now, so fingers crossed for the purses as well...

    ReplyDelete
  83. I am still waiting too LJ, but I am more hopeful after hearing that others also didn't receive a dispatch email and still got their order.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I'm still waiting too......I'm in the US so it does take longer time to process the order than in the Europe. Is there anyone in the US who has gotten any information from the website?

    ReplyDelete
  85. I'm in the U.S. I can't seem to find where to put in the order number on their website. So hard in a different language.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I'm in US as well. I know this would take longer, my German sale faxes (re-routed by a friend) took about a week to get to NYC. I was informed that my order was shipped 2 days ago. So I'm not too worried about the waiting time.

    ReplyDelete
  87. @bluebonnetreads OHHH! I ordered the purple Fichley from the States too,and it was also my first time venturing internationally, but then, 3 days later I received a letter from Filofax Sweden saying they refunding all my $30 because it's sold out... I'm crushed... Filofax USA does not have a good bargains at all and selection is not all that great either... :-(

  92. I sent an email to them and got the reply that my order was shipped on Tues!!!! My first email with ff Sweden is a short confirmation email soon after placing the order. And in my bank account, it shows 'pending' for several days. I don't know if this is the case for other people who are still waiting. If yes, then like @Sweetspot said, no news is good news.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I paid with credit card and the charge still hasn't appeared. I sent an email to them to see but haven't heard back. I did get the short confirmation email also. Glad you are getting yours!

    ReplyDelete
  94. @LJ did you get a confirmation email listing the finchley's? Also, did you have to call or email them to find out you didn't get your finchleys?

    ReplyDelete
  95. @ Happy - I called them on Thursday. Very helpful, but a bit disappointing. I'm just glad I had ordered other things as well so I still have those to look forward to :-)

    ReplyDelete
  96. I rec'd a confirmation for the A5 finchley (and the amt was debited from my acct) but nothing after - I emailed yesterday using the order@filofax.se email and got an email back saying it was sent out on the 15th.

    Can't wait... Wonder how long it takes mail from sweden to get to the US?

  97. I received my package from Sweden TODAY~~!
    Both Finchleys are sooo beautiful. I honestly didn't know if I'd like them until I hold them in my hands.
    I missed German 9 euro Finchley rose, but I think the purple is better. And their inserts are different than US, very simple, practical and cool. I'll put some pics up in flickrs soon.

    I'm NYC btw, for those in US who are still waiting for your package. I guess it's any day now.

  99. Yay! How lucky are you! I live in Utah, so it will take a bit longer for me. Yet I am not sure if I will get them or not. No charge on my credit card yet? So I am not sure if I will be getting it. I will post if I ever do (or don't). Glad to hear they are beautiful though! Plus, I don't think Germany sent out to the States, so it is kind of fun that the U.S. was able to participate in this sale! Please post pictures. I would like to see the inserts.

    ReplyDelete
  100. @Happy
    Have you emailed them an inquiry about your order? order@filofax.se (I think, please double check.) They most likely will reply the next day, with excellent English! It will take the suspense away at least.

    The inserts are cool, especially in the A5. Black (!) plastic like dividers. And I got July 2011 up to Jan 2013 diary! WO2P with lines and time bar. Much more useful than the column ones in the US books. Will take pics of them tomorrow and upload to flickr.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I know everyone has moved on, but I thought I would mention that I got my Finchleys today. Thanks for the help everyone. I enjoy this website.
