Good find, but nothing anywhere near this price online.

No, my store doesn't normally stock these, I think they have just been brought in for clearance purposes. x
Salter scales are junk. Have a set of the ones that tell you your fat and water content. They have a very long guarantee but every 4-6 months they go haywire and won't settle, bouncing between 10 and 20 stone and then giving up and switching off. New batteries in, it's not the batteries, back to Argos for an exchange under warranty, i'm on my 5th set in 2 years.

I've had a set of Salter kitchen scales for around 5 years, I've never had a single issue other than the battery need changing once. They are still very accurate and working fine.

Think you are just unlucky, or the particular model you have has some issues. We have Salter bathroom and kitchen scales and have been using them for years without any issues

Maybe it's your weight that's bouncing between 10 & 20 stone?
Very unlikely to find.
There's a slim chance of finding this in a store

​Maybe it can't take the weight...
So is this how someone gets a hot deal? No proof, no receipt, nothing. How does that work out?

Their customer service is fantastic.
Contact them and they'll probably send you a new set without having to return the faulty one.
You just need proof of purchase and a photograph of the issue etc.
Hope you get it sorted.
Ours show a different weight when you first step on them, you have to step off to reset it then it shows the correct weight,

Seems to work out quite well considering this is 500 degrees.
Why should anyone have to prove anything to you?

I agree. My experience is the same. This company has to have the best customer service ever - you can even hear their smile on the phone.

Bought a similar product (Weight Watchers branded) from Tesco for around £3 a couple of years back - thought that was a bargain. These tip the scale though!

They never get any calls usually, they are happy to actually answer the phone and be doing something!

I'm pretty sure weighing scales aren't able to accurately measure your fat and water content anyway. You need to be properly tested for that.

From my experience they are extremely happy to do so. Can't rate them highly enough.
Clicking the link on the right side doe not open the scale webpage and I did not find it on Superdrug website. What's wrong?

It's not about proving anything to me, it's about proving this is a legitimate deal otherwise anyone can post a made up deal. I'm not saying this is a made up deal but there's no proof at all that this exists, other than OP's words.

So every in store deal should have proof posted? If you don't think it's genuine don't go for it oO

Yeah, I believe so. A picture of a receipt is simple to upload. Gives faith that the post isn't a dud.
Temporarily changed deal picture to receipt. X
Just scanned at £4.50 at my local in Halifax, last one on the shelf which was priced up at £9.00, still a bargain IMO

And how will that stop people making a wasted trip if its a local reduction rather than national?

I thought that this was meant to be a site where we all help each other out??? Whatever happened to that good old-fashioned mentality where we actually believe what our fellow human beings say - without having to question them?
C'mon, it's a set of scales; not the answer to world peace!!.... I'm sure FoxyCoxy didn't post this just to get high on the heat added??! I guess some people on here need to get out more! ;-)
Been in super drug at Meadowhall they had I of these scales on shelf. They were extremely dusty but I got somebody to price check them and they were £9.00 !!!!!!!!
