Double Socket with 2x USB - £2 each when purchasing 2 or more on B&Q online - £10 on their own

Found 20th Oct
BRITISH GENERAL 13A WHITE SWITCHED DOUBLE SOCKET & 2 X USB

Seems to be a glitch with the B&Q online exclusive.
These are stated to be £10 each or 2 for £22.

Fortunately when you add more than 2 to your basket, they come out at £2 each!

Turns out they are the wrong size for my needs so haven't gone through with the order but hopefully someone else can benefit.

Great find - wonder if this will be honoured.

Anyone else a bit concerned over whether the USB transformer runs 24/7? It shouldn't matter but that would be the equivalent of leaving a phone charger plugged in all the time, I know it's minimal power but I mean for longevity, I can't imagine these going for more than 2-3 years before giving up unless the USB port is controlled by the socket switch it's nearest to.

I think there's more than one issue with this - how can one be £10 but two for £22??

Just tried with updating my basket to 100 units and it updates to £200 for the lot, still £2 each.

Working for me. Looks like you have to select Click & Collect.

These are only 2.1a, you are better getting 2 of these 3.1a sockets for £15

Just ordered 10 for click and collect so no delivery charge, £20 for 10 went through fine.
Just waiting for a cancellation email
Gotta be in it to win it I suppose.

Ordered 10 and paid delivery. Don't want the in-store hassle

Already have 3.1A ones in bedrooms but bought 4 anyway for lounge kitchen etc.

Wow Scorching....... Ordered 4 Click and Collect.

Ordered 6 using Topcashback and their £2.50 bonus promotion.

£12 and £9.50 for 6 if honoured.
Plus a small 3% cashback.

Try putting in an “even” quantity e.g. 2,4,6 and it will work.

I just put 4 in and it came up £8 so perhaps even numbers? Also go to checkout and it should be there.

Similar here. Ordered 5 for £10. £2.50 bonus cashback + 25p just tracked, makes it £7.25 or £1.45 each. Not bad, thanks OP.

The 2.1's I have been fine for me. I use some 24/7 for motion sensors and the like and they're great.

Just ordered 6! Great find.

Thanks

Brilliant find. Worked for me. Haven’t picked up yet though. Pitty id done my house the other month anyway. These will do for the parents house though

nice. just ordered a few.

Normally you need to spend £12 (hence ordering 6) as the cashback is ex-VAT with B&Q.
Did your bonus tack with that £10 purchase?

Fantastic find. Thanks op, legend. Ordered 30 to do the whole house.

Update. It worked. Ordered 5. Collecting in 90 mins. Thanks OP.

Just did a quick check and when not in use they use very little power because there idling under no load, so should last a long time?

Ah, no, I didn't. Not to worry, guaranteed I'll be ordering more items to qualify for it elsewhere.

Ordered 5, click and collect, £10.

ordered and now ready for collection. Cheers for the deal!
