I was just thinking about how the VAT rate is going up again soon and it got me wondering just how much I have saved over the past few months as a result of the change.
The only shop I've actually noticed the change in is Primark - you get to the tills and actually get money taken off the ticket price. Ooh and my o2 phone bill has been a few pence lower. I bought something from Early Learning Centre not so long ago for £9.99. £25 for a shirt at Debenhams. And £8.95 for some CDs the other day. I'm guessing these shops have just been keeping an extra 2.5% for themselves??
I want to buy a new TV but unfortunately can't afford it this year :( I was wondering how much you think/have noticed yourselves saving??
