Individual thomas and friends books for 99p.

I know you can, as we did, get the boxset of 50 for £29.99 but if you don't want the full set or, like us, simply need to replace a lost one then this is the cheapest option I've seen. Don't know if they've got them all but our local store certainly had a reasonable range.

Thought I'd post it in case it helps anyone.

Cold... as individual books are 45p each if you buy a copy of the Mirror and go to WHSmith. :thumbsup:

...although of course you can't be as selective as the OP was. ;-)

Have you actually seen this deal in the daily mirror?! Not all 50 are available and you have to go in to WHSMITH or Toys R Us ON THE DAY that the voucher is printed, otherwise you can't get it.

So basically you have to be prepared to go to toys r us or WHsmith every single day that the offer is on and if you want to send off for them then it costs £5.99!! I think the offer is on for 10 days, so 10 x 45p = £4.50 + £5.99 to send off - potentially costing £10.49 for 10 books = over £1 per book. Plus you dont get the free toys if you send off.

So this is a hot deal as these books are in waterstones for £2.99

The books in the offer are specially printed for the offer, ok for a freebie but not the same quality. Was surprised at the p&p charges on this offer - the lego deal was definitely better. I'll pick up the ones I'm about for but won't be losing sleep over the ones I don't get.

Best I'd seen these books at before this was £1.99 in Matalan.

Yes, I have the first book here in front of me. Anyone want a copy of the Daily Mirror?

Not sure I follow your logic there. These are not partworks - you don't need to collect them all. I am one of many who walk past a WHSmith on my way to work - so very easy to pick them up. I was not advocating paying £5.99!!

it's just that these books are different to the normal Thomas books that you can get in the shops. While the Daily Mirror deal is ok if you do pass a WHSMITH or Toys R Us, it's not good if you want to collect the full set or if you dont live near one of these stores as you have to travel to collect on the day that the voucher is obtained.

This shouldn't be voted cold just because there's an offer in the Daily Mirror..

Neither the Daily Mirror or The Works store offer "the full set".
What would you rather do, pay 99p or 45p for a Thomas book? :thinking:
