Just been into my local branch of Asda and they had a TomTom One box with a reduced sticker showing it down from very original price of £279 to £99.01. Checked it out at the counter and they are still registering as £179 although apparently that is only until tomorrow when it will be £99.01 on checkout. Not sure if this is nationwide but it certainly applied to all of those on the shelf in my branch in South WOodham Ferrers. Going back tomorrow!

'so sorry everyone, went in store to collect mine this am and was asked whether i was many that had called up about an internet deal. in which case the reduction was from £279 to £179 a reduction of £99.01 (to which I said, no that was a reduction of £100). either way, they're not honouring the deal for me. really peeved and, to add insult to injury, was 15 minutes late into the office as a result. feel bad now for raising hopes when in fact this was a red herring. sorry all'.

Are you certain that this is a v2 model.

Are you certain that this is a v2 model.


definitely the v2 as it showed the actual size of it on outside of box and it's exactly the same as the one i've already got (am going to new one for my parents and my partner has the original v1 model). hope that helps. :thumbsup:
#4
just phoned them up and double treble checked, it is definitiely the v2 and the only reason he couldn't sell it to me today was something to do with it 'not going on the gun' or something like that. one has been put aside for me though and the manager has confirmed that they will all be that price in the south woodham ferrers branch tomorrow. i asked if it was nationwide and the person could not confirm whether that would be the case. hope it is for everyone elses benefit.
#5
Excuse my ignorance but could someone tell me how to tell if its a V1 or V2?
#6
Just called my local Asda and they have sold out.....Think the staff are having 1st dibs by the looks of it.

no ignorance at all stokie - tbh the v2 is a lot slimmer and has a bigger screen than the v1, and i think the v2 shows the actual size of it on the box whereas the v1 doesn't (from memory of the box my partner's one was received in around 18 months back). not the best explanation :roll: but i hope that helps. :)
#8
Just phoned my local Asda and the manager says he does not know anything about it.
#9
how many dif they have in your local store, im not to far from there and i might pop down and get one
#10
wes - mindful of what bookie said and the fact that i was in there around 3 hours ago, it'd probably be worth calling before you pop down. they are on 01245 321888 but they did say that i'd only be able to get it from tomorrow. the person who confirmed the deal was called paul and he was on the entertainments section. good luck. :)

abacus - must admit that despite asking there was no confirmation that this deal was national but thought it was a good find nonetheless. maybe it'll come on-line tomorrow in other branches, but i really don't know whether this will be the case. :)

Thanks for that oB765o
#12
might pop over right now...
#13
And, oB765o, have you reported the store for breaking the law (Price Marking Order 2004), advertising one price and charging another? ;-)

will make a note to do so if they change their mind or have 'sold out' when i go back to buy it at the reduced price tomorrow!!!
#15
iv just rung two asda stores close to where i live.

The advisors manage to locate the TomTom One instore BUT the advisors in both stores could not tell if it was the V1 or the V2!

both advisors said they looked all over the box but

can someone tell me how you can tell the difference simply by looking on the box?!

also does anybody know when the price change over to £99.01? iv got a good mind to go to my Asda at 12.00am just to pick one up!
#16
Seems a very good price if true
#17
Its not technically breaking the law. As far as I understand if they advertise something incorrectly on the shelf then it can be taken off sale until the price is corrected and then placed back on sale. A long long time ago in a galaxy far away....... i was a retail manager.
#18
i just went over to my local asda and she says htey got one at that price adn they've sold it!

its not really against the law, just bad business to do this. the sale of the item is carried out at the checkout (point of sale).
in effect you are not obliged to accept the price on the ticket as you are entitled to haggle. therefore it works both ways.
#22
and i've foned a few asdas as to their availabilty and listened to their stupid music

they either have none in stock at 99 or arent aware of the offer
#23
Anyone remember that ipod misprice in the asda magazine? It'll be another waste of time I reckon!
#24
none in charlton branch all sold apparantly.......
#25
2 in stock at my local branch still coming up at full price but Ive reserved one in the hope they will go down in the morning.
#26

[SIZE=4]The Consumer Protection (Code of Practice for Traders on Price Indications) Approval Order 2005[/SIZE]

The Consumer Protection Act 1987 makes it an offence to indicate a price for goods or services which is lower than the one that actually applies. You should not therefore show one price in an advertisement, website, window display, shelf marking or on the item itself, and then charge a higher price at the point of sale or checkout. In addition, specific regulations apply to particular types of sales and ways of selling—eg retail sales (including the Internet), sales of food and drink which involve service, distance contracts, resale of tickets, package travel, etc. Your local Trading Standards Services or Home Authority will be pleased to advise you on the current regulations that are relevant to your business and of any good practice guidance which is also relevant.

Part III
Misleading Price Indications
http://www.statutelaw.gov.uk/images/icon_closed_level.gif
20. Offence of giving misleading indication.
— (1) Subject to the following provisions of this Part, a person shall be guilty of an offence if, in the course of any business of his, he gives (by any means whatever) to any consumers an indication which is misleading as to the price at which any goods, services, accommodation or facilities are available (whether generally or from particular persons).
(2) Subject as aforesaid, a person shall be guilty of an offence if— (a)
in the course of any business of his, he has given an indication to any consumers which, after it was given, has become misleading as mentioned in subsection (1) above; and

(b)
some or all of those consumers might reasonably be expected to rely on the indication at a time after it has become misleading; and

(c)
he fails to take all such steps as are reasonable to prevent those consumers from relying on the indication.


(3) For the purposes of this section it shall be immaterial— (a)
whether the person who gives or gave the indication is or was acting on his own behalf or on behalf of another;

(b)
whether or not that person is the person, or included among the persons, from whom the goods, services, accommodation or facilities are available; and

(c)
whether the indication is or has become misleading in relation to all the consumers to whom it is or was given or only in relation to some of them.


(4) A person guilty of an offence under subsection (1) or (2) above shall be liable— (a)
on conviction on indictment, to a fine;

(b)
on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum.


(5) No prosecution for an offence under subsection (1) or (2) above shall be brought after whichever is the earlier of the following, that is to say— (a)
the end of the period of three years beginning with the day on which the offence was committed; and

(b)
the end of the period of one year beginning with the day on which the person bringing the prosecution discovered that the offence had been committed.

Cracking offer if true.

I've phoned Wallington, Sutton, and Burgh Heath.

No joy.

#30
great find will try it out
#31
None at Gribbs Bristol.
#32
I have just rang the Lincoln store and they confirmed that it is the V2, but it is still priced at £179, they did not know about any price reductions tomorrow, so rang National customer services and they couldn't give any more info until the buyers come in tomorrow am.

Lincoln store does have the Garmin Nuvi 300 at £99

Any thoughts on which is best, the Nuvi 300 or TomTom One V2
#33
Got some at Bristol Whitchurch and Bedminster.

But price is £179 but I reserved 2 so wish me luck. :)
#34
None in the Swindon Haydon branch.
#35
they had 14 at Asda in Penryn ( cornwall ) the display one was showing £179
#36
in advance of tomorrow, i really hope that this pays off and wasn't a red herring applicable to my local branch only. as soon as i've managed to buy it i'll drop a post on to advise. :)
#37
No problem oB765o, if you ain't in you cant win and we don't have to buy it at £179 if we don't want to.

Worth a punt, I have been looking for a good priced TomTom for ages but the icing on the cake here is I get colleague discount too.

as soon as i've managed to buy it i'll drop a post on to advise


One question, can we price match if you do get it at that price?

doubt you will see any V1 in the shops.

The V1 was all black, but the V2 has a silver/black front panel.

I am no expert on these and not even ever had one but been looking ages.

I think "SiRFStarIII Chipset" is a technical difference.
