This is a very nice mouse. Order value must be >£50 + VAT for free delivery.


It's now £50 (ex VAT) minimum spend at Scan to get free delivery. You might well find your order will be cancelled!

Don't want to split hairs, but ]AVForums free Scan p&p offer is for orders above £50+VAT = £58.75.
Would politely suggest free p&p is not abused.
Abuse it and lose it :-(

Well, through ignorance, I placed my order a couple of days ago, and it has been honoured - the mouse is in my hand.

I don't know why it was honoured if the rule is >50... it must be easy for scan to make a descision about whether postage is free or not based on order value!! :?

Anyway - it's still a good deal - even if you end up paying for the postage IMO.

I agree though - I don't think it's a good idea to abuse the system... I would hate to loose the free postage facility. I will amend the post if I can.

I couldn't find anywhere better to post this question... but someone here might know the answer.

It occurred to me that I didn't seem to have much control on the scan site about what the postage cost should be... the AVForums discount was applied when I logged in... so I just went and checked out. Indeed - if I add a £12.99 item to the basket without logging in, my delivery is listed at £6.49. However, when I log in, the delivery cost goes to £0.00. The delivery options I have from this point forward are as follows:

City Pack: All Day Delivery by 17:30 (AVFORUMS Discount) - £0.00 Total Price: £15.26
City Pack: Morning Delivery by 12:00 - £10.86 Total Price: £28.02
City Pack: Afternoon Delivery 12:00 - 17:30 - £11.00 Total Price: £28.19
City Pack: Morning Delivery by 10:30 - £15.10 Total Price: £33.01
City Pack: Morning Delivery by 09.30 - £19.84 Total Price: £38.58

It seems I have no choice other than to pay £0.00 or pay £4.37 over the odds for AM delivery. What gives? Am I 'abusing the system' by placing an order with

The link I used to sign up to the Scan deal states (]and still does) that it's a £20 minimum order. It seems that, depending on when you signed up, it's ether minimum of £20 or £50. For people who signed up when it was £20, it still is. I guess new users have a minimum spend of £50.

Thanks, but that doesn't explain away the £12.99? And I still don't seem to get a choice, like I said. BTW - that link seems to say £50 to me.

Ahh - I see. It seems that thread includes a banner explaining the free delivery deal @>£50 the first time you click on it. You get only the thread content the next time you click on the link.


I have just had my order bounced for the £50 delivery limit and I've had the AVforums linked to the account for ages
