This sort leads on from the earlier game thread by Garyrip but is a more general query.
As I understand it - if postage is free when you spend over a certain amount (eg Ebuyer, Amazon) the standard practice is to quote the price without postage (even if the item is only £1 and you have to spend another £14 for postage!!).
Would it not be clearer to have the headline price including postage and the poster could put the price excluding postage in brackets.
This could ALSO apply to all deals where postage is optional eg Tesco Direct prices (which you can have delivered free to a tiny percentage of Tesco stores and only probably applies to 5% of HDUK members). So this would apply to online Waterstones, WH Smith, Woolies deals etc that you can pick up from a local store without postage.
If someone wants to quote a deal without including postage then for clarity they should maybe quote INSTORE ONLY in the title (as you have to go to the store to get the free postage).
Some of the Tesco, Ebuyer etc deals look great until you add the postage, then they're not so good.....
