Convenient Pricerise

Need a new radio and have been keeping an eye on the on-line price from a major retailer, and waiting to see what Santa might bring first.

Between 8.00am and 8.00pm yesterday the price suddenly shot up by £40.

What's the betting there'll be a massive reduction of around £40 just in time for the Boxing Day sale?

Surely you are not being cynical about the pricing of sales items at our major retail outlets!!! LOL.

The law states that a product must have been offered for sale at the higher price for at least a month prior to the 'sale' price being advertised.

But not necessarily on-line!

Maybe more like £20.

Many an article I have seen with the sale price higher than the original price.

I have been watching some of Argos prices. Price reductions, yet literature states that price was lower previously?.

Now where's my yo-yo!.

If I recall correctly the price only needs to have been sold at a higher price at one outlet for a period of 28 days in the last 6 months.

So it could have been sold in one branch, for 5 days a month over the last 6 months.

This is only for products described as Sale products, there's also clearence offers, end of line offers, roll-backs, manager's specials etc, none of these have any restrictions

I bought a food processor from Currys last week. £59.99 reduced from £149.99 they said. It's now £139.99 online!

Its been a very strange year with supposed price wars, because if you follow most of the commercial business's, their prices seem to be based on 'what they can convince the public its worth'.

We use re-chargeable 1/2/3 million candlepower lamps, and were seeking a possible replacement a month ago (cheaper to buy new unit, that a new re-chargeable lead acid/gel battery). Decided to look at Halfords prices and found that they had reduced the 1 million candlepowers from £14.99 to £9.99. Made a instore purchase last Friday, and the receipt states the item at £14.99 on special offer £9.99. When I checked the website on Friday, then phoned the local Halfords about stock, there was a query as to what the price was on the website.

Had we decided to purchase a (similar Silverline brand?) 1 million candlepower lamp from another source, we could have received that item for £8.49 delivery included. Didn't order the Silverline branded product, because I am having a few problems with that brand. Halfords would have been the better option for returns.

You're right there Buteman. They'd chopped the price so I used my loaf for once. Hope it doesn't turn out to be a turkey. Happy Christmas!
