:?

Ohh do tell ;-) . ................................... please :whistling:

never heard of this retailer before. anyone used them before (apart from op of course)

This bit has me worried (from atlaseditions.co.uk/e/c…tml)

"You don’t have to join any club, and there is no minimum purchase. If you start a collection, you are completely free to put it on hold or stop it completely at any time, no questions asked. All you have to do is inform us of your decision by e-mail, telephone or post. "

So my question to you all, are you paying 99 pence for the ENTIRE body, or just the left eyebrow?

In other words, if this IS a COLLECTION, are you prepared to pay £1 every 10 days until £50 or more (say) has been spent?

Until this is settled, and the site is somewhat shy about revealing the exact nature of this purchase, I have to vote cold.

If I can work out how to.

+1

link not working?

what are the catches then?

This should be stone cold as it appears to be a con. What you are paying for is "free ten days home approval " for 99p. Guess you will be charged full price if not returned which doubtless will be at your cost.

Avoid.......... !

Bit more research shows this company has been investigated by Money Saving Expert.com, a well respected outfit with TV program. Mixed results but I only have to read the following from a buyer to confirm validity of my earlier suspicion.
Quote
there is no catch s such as you can only pay the 99p but you only get one part of whatever the set is. once you have recieved that one part they say you can keep that one for free and just pay 6.99 evrery other month and it costs alot in the end. i got the winnie the pooh set for my daughter and i certainly dont think it was worth the money you end up paying out for it but if you dont then you only have about 1% of the set.

Unquote.......

and not only that, its a French company !....

But if you don't agree then carry on with best of luck.

ive had this before, it was 99p for the whole set with no commitment to buy anything else. i also got the country ones

These are really good - sent off for the first lot & am still getting sent them, as I thought it would help with the study.

On my second A4 ring-binder & still no sign of completing the collection ....... the cost goes up to £4.50 for 10 card plus £1.99 postage then after you have brought about 3 then will send it out in packs of 30 @ £13.50 plus £2.49 postage ............ if I'd realised how much it was to collect it all I wouldn't have bothered!

Pack covers Anatomy / Functions of the Body / The Mind / Life Cycle / Disorders & Disease / Medicine / Day to Day Health - so it's not quite how I imagined it !!

Just do some research into it before calling it a con. It isn't a con because you get exactly what it promises. After you receive the cards you have the option to pay 99p and that's it. With the cards is a leaflet saying if you wish to collect more then you can get the next set for half price and the 99p cards are free. After that the cards go up to full price if you wish to continue. I've ordered some cards before and paid the 99p and that was it. With the boats offer they did I got the first and second ones then cancelled. I had a problem when they didn't get the cancellation letter apparently. I sent it with the invoice so maybe they didn't see it. An email sorted it out quickly with no additional cost to me.

fact sheet for 99p to build your file= will work out a lot of money. not a deal to me maybe a deal to someone

Weird! I gave my work address (I teach biology), agreed to some terms and conditions I can't find and that's it. No payment. I searched the webiste for how to cancel. It says you have 10 days to cancel, just send an email.

As a motivational tool to become gold diggers.

This company appear to speculate on how many orders they can get before they actually produce the goods, I ordered from them in March, and in June, and July and have just spoken to them again. Had no contact from them to say out of stock but we will have some in October so you 'should' have items by November.
In other words when we get enough orders we'll generate a production run, I've seen it before the only good thing is at least I haven't paid anything, just most annoying wouldn't touch with someone else's bargepole :x

Update - I ordered this at the time and the fact sheets arrived a few weeks after. Pleasantly surprised at what I got for the 99p - but there was no method or request for payment with the pack.

Today, I got another letter from them, small bundle of advertising offering me the option of continuing to get more stuff at £4.50 (and get the 99p pack free) or another option of paying the 99p and not availing of the new offer.

I've written a cheque for 99p and sending it back - def value for money at 99p - so a legit deal for me.

Do you get 60 sheets?

Yup... 60 sheets / pages - double sided (so 120 pages of info). Pages are slightly larger than A4
+ 1 x A3-ish sized poster (single sided).

Oh yes - and the (later) request includes a freepost envelope to send them a cheque for 99p

Thanks

Nope, I think he looks more like Christopher Heyerdahl (John Druid from Sanctuary)
