Found 17th Aug 2015
Popped in to Homebase Alnwick to get a few of these for lights and the fish tank, on the shelf they were £2.93 but rang through the checkout at 93p each. I went for these due to their small footprint compared to the Masterplug ones, glad I did now!

This is the deal of the day. Thanks. Far better and more reliable than a digital timer

​I thought so too the woman on the checkout said they'd reduced a lot of things to 93p, must be clearing out for the autumn ranges

Homebase are just about dead in the water,,, I have been trying to contact 2 big store in Derby for 3 days without success absolute rubbish,,,what a pity they used to be so good and I have spent thousands of pounds with them over the years....some of the offers they have at them moment are fantastic if you are fortunate to be able to order on line, I am unable to make store visits for personal reasons.

Make sure you check your nectar account for bonus offers before you shop. I had an offer for 750 points on my next purchase...so I spent 13p on cat litter tray liners

I got a double points voucher...doesn't really add up to much on a 93p spend!!

I need to pick up some of these and I was looking more towards the digital kind. My main thought was that the digital ones do not make noise, and I wanted to keep one of these in my bedroom to make the most of Economy 7.

Are the digital ones really that bad?

lots of light bulbs at 93p in Ipswich didn't see any timers!!

Mechanical timers tend to be cheaply made, not keep time, and break. Digital is better IMO.

They are hard to set up and if you have a power cut you have to reset. To me mechanical is simpler.
