Looks as though price has been reduced to £4 now OP?

Where's it from?

I got some rtc in Tesco last night - 4 sockets, short lead but only £1.75 and individually switched. Worth looking on the rtc crap shelf if you're in Tesco anyway.
But hot price for the Asda ones

Why do they charge £4.95 to collect from store!?

Price updated

Why on earth do they charge 4.95 for delivery when ye pick it up instore

I think it's a disgrace that you have to pay £4.95 when you're collecting instore, unless you spend a minimum of £25!! Asda's collect instore is a joke anyway, they are hopeless!!

no point getting a surge protected lead unless it comes with insurance

Agree. Delivery charges for ASDA are ridiculous. Boots deliver free to store no matter how much you spend so if they can do it, so can ASDA.

Got a friend that asked "what's the point about having surge protectors in England when there aren't many thunderstorms?".

A surge-protected mains lead will never protect against a lightning strike - they are toys. It's just another way of persuading you you need something you never thought you needed.

And even if it has, are the terms of that insurance not so onerous that no-one will ever be able to realistically claim on it anyway? What a joke.

So it doesn't look like there's any point getting a surge protected lead...?

Absolutely. If it says "surge protected" then it won't do any harm, but don't let that claim sway your purchasing decision. I no more believe in Father Christmas than I do in the effectiveness of so-called "surge protected" extension leads.

I just picked up a 6 way, 3 METRE, surge protected extension lead from Tesco. Were £10, now half price at £5.
