Ah! straight off "offeroftheday" and not actually available of course.:whistling:
#2
not in stock as far as I can see voted cold
#3
not in stock anywhere i tried - inverness, aberdeen, glasgow, edinburgh. It is just sooooo easy to advertise great prices when there aint any for sale.
#4
Yes, usual DSG cons - anything ending in .97 or .87 generally isn't available. Well, 99% of the time isn't available. Just them doing some false advertising really.

There should be a law against this, er I think there is!

I totally detest Currys for this type of thing. The give away is you can only reserve and collect.

We recently tried to R&C some Disney cars items for my 5 year old son, we tried both Leamington and Rugby. on both occasions we were able to reserve and on both occasions after making specific jouneys we were told in store sorry no stock the web site is incorrect. My son was totally gutted, and I mean gutted. They just looked at me in the store and shrugged. Why oh why do they do this, why oh why are they systems so totally Cr-p at this. I even tried emailing my displeasure to their complaints department who advised me to ring before setting off, er no, I have reserved it on line it said you had stock, why should I ring to cover up the shortfalls in your sh-tty system.

Currys?, wouldn't touch um with a barge pole.

I've had a similar run around with PC World recently - you cannot get anyone in the store to call you back. The 'customer help' must be ironically named too - the last occasion I called them stating I needed to check stock was in store before making a journey, I was told the store wasn't answering th phone and I should buy the item somewhere else! At least the advise was sound I suppose.

DSG don't usually get my money anymore - their CS service has been dire for as long as I can remember and I don't always think the price is that competitive either. Eventually I voted with my wallet & now when I go into John Lewis no-one shrugs at me or can't be bothered to check the stockroom.

Suppose Tesco direct do the same - saw washing machine in store signe said free delivery contact tesco direct desk at front door, went to tesco direct desk and they didnt have any in stock. b .s they were in store - why does the store advertise for tesco direct then. no answer and of course no free delivery. t w

Anything ending in .97 or .87 is usually End of Line which means its often 'while stocks last', display stock or customer returns. Sometimes, the return actually needs repair or has missing elements, so whilst the shop has stock, it is no fit state to be sold to a customer.

This is where the customer may actually end up with a bargain - if the store doesnt order replacement parts (e.g. batteries, chargers, leads or remotes etc.) the item will just sit in the warehouse gathering dust until such point as head office drop the prices significantly to move old stock along (as is probably the case in the OP - the 105 is quite an old model now).

I know my local store recently sold an Olympus E500 (a £500+ camera when new about 18months ago) for £200 - the only thing it was missing was some of the internal packaging and the USB cable. I bundled the camera with a £10 card reader and some new batteries (it used C123's not the Li-Ion pack) and sold the camera very quickly.

Why does everything have to be 'false advertising' and very negative when a large chain store gets rid of limited stocks at cheap prices. Surely these can be the hottest deals?

Why post when it doesn't exist.
