Bosch Rotak 34R Electric Rotary Lawn Mower - £99.99 but get for £63.99 or less @ Homebase

Found 14th Jun 2014
I've had to buy a new mower as my Flymo's motor has just died.
As usual, I checked HUKD for hot deals and found the Bosch 34R that could be bought a few weeks ago for £69.99.
On checking Homebase, this model is now £99.99 but Argos have it for £79.99. Also at Homebase for this weekend they have 20% off Bosch equipment.
I took proof to Homebase of the Argos deal and got them to price match this, I then got the extra 20% Bosch discount as well leaving me to pay £63.99.
I am not sure, but you may also be able to use the £5.00 survey voucher with this also which could mean getting it for £58.99 if it all works ok. Links in first post.

I bought this last month to replace ageing Motor Mower did not expect it to be much good for the price but have to say have been pleasantly surprised although it only has a light weight rear roller you can still get a strip effect and the cut can go down very fine. Read some more reviews on Amazon before making purchase and have been very pleased. May not last for years as is all lightweight plastic and although it is not self propelled I find it easy to use and cuts right to edge.

Hope this helps,

Good deal, and a bit of a slip up for homebase, afterall I thought homebase was owned by the same group as argos...unless I'm mistaken!

Can't fault Bosch.

My local branch would price match Argos for this model but wouldn't add the 20% off. I called up beforehand asking if they pricematch the dosey woman sounded like she had no idea what she was talking about. I was going to tell her about the price guarantee they have in their pricing policy. Ended up getting a flymo, although I just couldn't decide between the flymo and bosche.

I have only ever had bad customer service from Homebase.

same here. we went in store,they agreed to price match but refused to take anthor 20% off. I will probably go for the aldi one with 3 years warranty that was put on htukd recentley

Both Argos and Homebase are owned by the Home Retail Group, therefore technically they should match the price match along with honoring the 20% which is clearly advertised.

The customer service received from the majority of Retail companies can be bad depending on the level of the training the staff have received.

As for the £5 off for filling out a paintus a picture survey they would also be taken off.

Bought this today and it's sat in the garage broken.

Very disappointed, had a half cut lawn and misses friend's coming round! The lawn was cur 2 weeks ago and shouldn't be much trouble.

Borrowed my mum's Qualicast and managed to complete the job no problem! Will be paying the extra.

you are unlucky mate. these are very good mowers. take it back and get a replacement. if that breaks, then its something you are doing. nothing to do with the mower.

Your choice was as bad as your spelling!

the price match should include any discounts. so seeing as there is 20% ofd bosch anyway. there is no need to price match.

With just the Bosch 20% discount, it only comes to the same price as Argos and therefore nullifies any benefit. I price matched first to then get it cheaper.
It's a shame that others aren't getting the same luck though.
The gril who served me tried to do it manually first but the till ended up taking the 20% discount off again which left it at 50 odd quid but she understandably couldn't let me have it for that price.

OMG, what would your wife's friend have said about a half cut lawn?
