Okay, so I've been saving nectar points for a Nikon SB-400 flashgun at Agros.
It's been in the catalogue for months at just under £98.
I new the price would go up to about £100 with VAT returning to 17.5%, but on checking the new catalogue I see it has gone up to £139.99!
That's an increase of nearly 43%!
Does anybody know of any huge Nikon price rises or is Agros just trying to rip off the public?
Or is this an attempt to increase the price for a few weeks so that they can con everybody by claiming a huge reduction in a few weeks time?

Looks like it's Argos - Camerabox are still selling for £95 incl delivery: http://www.camerabox.co.uk/productDA1.asp?ProductName=Nikon-SB400-Flashgun&ProductID=3498
Unfortunately I can't spend my Nectar points there!

Either that or the wholesale price for new stock has gone up - what with the exchange rate and all.

i would contact argos and explain the situation to them. my friend done this last time a new catalogue came out and a camera he had his eye on was £80 dearer. He spoke to one of the general managers and they were really helpful and give him a voucher for at least the £80 (think i remember them giving him a wee bit extra). hope this helps

It isn't a " rip - off " by anyone, they can charge whatever they like, you are not forced to buy from them.

No I didn't - I was waiting to have enough vouchers to be able to afford it. I wasn't waiting for it to drop. Read the original post! :prop:

It's a bit rich calling people cheap when you are posting on a bargain forum ... :thinking:
