FWI the pic you show above that plug is £2.98 in B+Q, the singles £4.99 in fact even with the glitch B+Q are cheaper apart from the switched fused one.

This is account specific so only works if the code was emailed to you as it was to me.

The code is not really part of the deal but its worth a try.

Think you need to cancel & re-order with 2 of each.

EDIT: PS Make sure you cancel & re-order - should come out at ~£43 - if you order another set it will come to ~£57.

Many Thanks to the OP. Managed to 6 light switches and a SIM card for £27.28 when I paid £13 for one a couple of months ago.
#17
Thanks emmatthew, have just redecorated the house and was planning to spend a fortune in B&Q for them. Heat and rep added :D

As i understand it you have to buy two of any item,you will then be given a third item free ie buy two 2 gang switches and you will receive a third free of charge.

Better to be safe and get a quality brand like MK or cramtree, although these seem like a good deal. I have had bad experiences with 'cheaper' electrical items like this which apparently comply to BS standards.

thanks

Never read as much rubbish, no electrical fittings can be legally sold in this country that do not comply to British standard, why would a company the size of tesco risk undoubted litigation by selling sub standard items?:?
#23
Out of stock on the remote sockets :(
#24
These are excellent value and quality at screwfix especially the starter kits at the foot of the page http://www.screwfix.com/cats/A431900/Electrical/Switches-Sockets/Stainless-Steel/Volex-Brushed-Stainless.
#25
I think there also 3% quidco on non grocery orders.
Hot deal

If you read my post I said nothing about not being BS compliant but more about the quality of the product itself. I was saying i had bad experiences with cheaper ones whereas the more expensive (MK, Cramtree) have been excellent. Its down to personal choice but I will pay that bit extra for piece of mind.

it seems theres tesco jokers are NOT going to honour these, just recieved this email:

Re: Your Tesco Direct order placed on Monday 9 June 2008
We are sorry to let you know that we have had to cancel your order because of problems processing your payment card.
In order to provide our customers with a safe and secure shopping experience, we carry out comprehensive payment verification procedures on every order, and unfortunately this can occasionally lead to some genuine payments being refused.
We are very sorry if this has affected your order this time. To place your order again on Tesco Direct, we would recommend that you use a different payment card We are sorry that we have had problems processing your order on this occasion, but hope that you choose to shop again with Tesco Direct soon.
Kind regards
The Tesco Direct Team
They could have just been honest!!!
#30
Your card has been refused. Nothing to do with them cancelling your order. I today have received my sim card, so hopefully that means my order has been accepted.
banned#31
My switches and SIM card were delivered today so can't complain about the service. Have to say that they are nice quality and exactly the same as the ones I got from B&Q a few months back.
#32
mine have reduced from £86 down to £63 for the beveille edge but that isnt BOGOF and ive bought 10 so not sure wot went wrong.
#33
gah!!! Tesco have taken the full amount for payment (at the reduced BOGOF) and have delivered the sim card. Now 3 weks later they tell me that the package was not delivered to their delivery team and i am going to have to re-order.

I told them that the offer has now expired and they have accepted my order, taken oayment and part delivered my order (no electrical sockets, just the sim).

Anyone know what i can quote to them (sale of goods etc) in order to get my order!!!!

Ta!
#34
finally got my full order!!
