Always found Wickets 3 for 2 to be the best.

Bought 3x Dulux Gloss last time & only used 1.5 tins. They took back 1 tin & refunded me a third, so you still benefit from the deal
Is this really a hot offer? I thought they Wikes always have them on 3 for 2 and its common knowledge. Whats the difference between this and this deal?

I will vote sunspot hot if you can use this offer for eggshell white paint as it £55 a tin
It's hot as most other offers are selective colours (basic and not so popular like in the deal you posted). This is all Dulux Emulsions and Glosses which makes it a bargain for when you have specific colour tastes.

I did this, and when I returned the unused tin I was buying other stuff and didn't have my receipt so they just exchanged it at the full single price. Plus I used to work at a Wickes not that that makes any different

Wicks is over £7 a tin then other DIY shops??....
The difference with the Wickes deal and some of the others is that it pretty much covers all types of paint & sizes whereas other deals tend to just include basic colours.
Its pretty clever marketing and my customers fall for it every time, if you buy 3 tins of a standard emulsion it works out at £10.66 per 2.5l tin, you can buy johnstones matt for £10 a tin at B and M on promo or a large 5l tin at B and M £19 this £19 is the price all the time. The johnstones in my view is not bad paint for retail gear, l would say its better than the dulux retail.
Anyone could also go/ order from dulux decor centres and buy the cheap branded armstead paint ( the trades best kept secret), covers like a dream across the range, it really is night and day! fewer coats means less paint, time saved and higher spreading rates it goes further, the dulux decor centre should deliver for you free locally also. They currently have contact matt big 10l tubs white and magnolia on offer at £11.99 plus vat if you buy 6, £13.99 if just after one tub, this is great for ceilings and a tidy clean up job. Far superior to the dulux/johnstones retail paints for coverage

Would you say Armstead trade is better than Leyland trade from Screwfix? Interested to get the best one which paints best as they are both relatively similar in price. Thanks in advance.
Hi loopyllood, yes the armstead is great paint, its a better product than leyland trade. its less soft and chalky than the leyland contract matt, the local DDC would tint you colours for approx £28/ £30 a 10 litre contract matt. armstead quick drying satin is far far better than dulux trade satin/ gloss and £20 a 5litre cheaper, please stay away from the dulux trade quick dry satin for your own sanity, its the worst paint Ive every used in 20 years of painting!!
Tip, get some decent rollers, the BLUE hamilton ones dont splatter as much.

I run a decorating company and have done for over 20 years. I wouldn’t buy ANY non trade paint. This offer is great for a DIY person in their own home of their not too fussed about applying 3 coats or so another hand buying twice the amount of paint (a lot of the Dulux non trade is super thick hence you tend to need more) it’s great marketing in all fairness to wickes. Trade will cost you a few quid more but is worth it every time in my opinion. For the lad/lady after eggshell
Leyland trade is good for acrylic eggshell for me...it’s great stuff!! We use it on schools all the time. All decorators will have differing opinions on paints but the one thing we do tend to agree on is BUY TRADE. Genuinely I have turned up on jobs where a customer wants to supply materials and went for the wickes range or b&q as it was on offer and cheap and I’ve immediately got the lads back in the van! All good if it’s a diy express job

Thanks both, this info does help a lot. I was thinking trade
Just had my whole house skimmed, need some paint to base coat the whole place, any recommendations?

I've been recommended Macpherson contract.
The Macpherson contract is quite thin, its a soft chalky finish, would do the job, the armstead is £2 10l tub dearer seems to not rub off just as much as the cheaper leyland/macphersons. It almost has a very slight sheen on it which makes it a touch more durable.
TonyBarnes is quite correct, stay away from the NON trade paints and you wont be far wrong

Which trade paint do you recommend? I've just bought a house and the whole lot needs painting after it's skimmed. Every ceiling/wall.
I tend to use Johnstones cover plus emulsion...if it’s new plaster then thin it down slightly on your 1st coat. I only use Dulux undercoat and gloss...it really is their strongest product. If your using an eggshell in the bathroom/kitchen then I’d suggest leyland acrylic eggshell above Johnstones or Dulux.
They all have their stronger products.

Thanks, I'll give the covaplus a try. I'm PVA-ing all of the walls before I paint to seal them (1/5 mix with water).
Are the special bathroom and kitchen paints worth it, or are they a marketing gimmick ?

100% yes, they don't mark as easy, clean without a cloth full of paint with it, and they are 5 year mould proof.
