Went into the Eastleigh store were they have stacks of these, though priced at £30. Did a price check and they go through the tills at £7.65!

Kit Contains:

-Wireless key fob operated wireless alarm consisting of 1 pir, 1 door/window contact, and 1 siren box - all fixing and -batteries included.

Digital Safe - 20cm deep, steel body, digital keyboard with lcd display, 2 manual override keys - all fixings and batteries included.

I was told as they go through the till at this price it must be nationwide.
At this price its cheaper to buy this kit the extra pir, and contacts to secure the whole home, then it is to buy them seperatley. Plus then you can flog the extra safes to make a profit!

Forgot to mention the make is Yale. Also forgot to note that there is also a Yale Alarm Kit 1, which contains the same parts as this one, but without the safe for £5 something.
It seems most alarms have gone down to silly prices - click go to deal to see a list of others.

It's the other side of town, a fair few miles from you.
Here's the barcode so you and others can phone local stores to check stock.

Thanks Sandiebabes,
The original price of these were £79 in April, then went to £49, then £30, and now £7.65. They'll be paying us to take them away next, if they aren't doing so already:-D

You could always search yourself for B&Q eastleigh postcode..and then use rac or aa to find the directions? :whistling:

Great find again SC.. I am beginning to think you live in B&Q now ;).

"(i don't drive either)" yeah that would help how? i'll just have to get a taxi / bus / walk. Hmm. smart ****.

I am not telling you that you have to drive it. But clearly, using a route planner would tell you where it is, and therefore if it is too far to be feasible.

Its not being a smart ****. Its me being sensible. It doesnt take much effort to look for directions to somewhere on the net, as opposed to asking somebody else to write an explanation out for you. Its easier all round to look yourself.

Saintscouple's answer was fair.."the other side of town". But has that helped you??(Not really). So then you still need more info...

Also want to add..wasnt looking for an argument.. but there are some things that dont need to be spoon fed

Actually, if you knew southampton you would know that totton IS the other side of town to Oceon village. Smart ****. considering i'm knew to the area looking up southampton on the b&q store location didn't help much. I DON'T KNOW THE AREA. so asking someone where abouts eastleigh is helps me out. It's hardly a massive inconvenience is it now. surely the sensible thing to do would be ask someone opposed to going by the internets probable "as the bird flies" method of describing how to get to a place. It has helped me "the other side of town" means i need not head over to the retail park where i assumed it might be! Hmm.

as usual, a word of warning...

I just rang the Crewe B&Q, the lady told me they had four in stock, commented on the value, and then when i asked for one to be reserved, she said she would put me through to that dept.

waited about thirty seconds for a guy to pick up and tell me that there are none at that store and its either a discrepancy or i gave the wrong code...hmm...looks like i let them in on it!!

the store locater's rubbish for someone that doesn't know the area! if i were living in Cambridge and I wanted to go to a b&q it would advise me to go to 3 b&q's one of which is P'boro.. FUNNY ENOUGH THAT'S ANOTHER TOWN! :thumbsup:

Can anyone comfirm they are this cheap at other stores?

Cheers.

Wasnt trying to be unhelpful. The route planner takes you say 15miles...then you know its a small trek.
Apologies...
Agree to disagree.

As Saintscouple says.. try a local store... you can even check stock availability online at B&Q if you dont want to phone.

Till prices are the same nationwide. It has been on the cards for a few months that B&Q would clear a lot of home security. So you may well find other home security items have been greatly reduced.

Yeah as I said after.. the store locater is RUBBISH. Peterborough is a DIFFERENT TOWN to cambridge! yet it states it's in cambridge!!

Unfortunatly you can't check the availability of this product online.
Though as you rightly indicated, use the store locator, give the store a phone, and if in stock ask for directions:thumbsup:

You just reminded me, Eastliegh also have a stack of Yale alarm kit 1's, sel £22.97, though they scan at £5 something.
It's the same alarm kit as the one i've mentioned, but thought an extra £2 for a digital safe is the better deal:thumbsup:

Just been trying the website, but no luck. Plus, its incredibly slow at the moment. In the process of buying a house which isnt alarmed - so this could be handy if I can find one in stock.

From what I can see..the Cambridge stores address is..
East Station Road
Peterborough
CAMBRIDGESHIRE
PE2 8AQ

Peterborough IS in Cambridgeshire...

So what is "RUBBISH" exactly? Or am I missing something? :oops:

It is advising you that if Cambridge store doesnt have stock, Peterborough is 1 of your nearest alternatives. B&Q currently has 335 stores nationwide(approx), so it cannot offer you an alternative in Cambridge if they only have 1 store there.

Damn!!

Not in our new store in Southend. Thi is because they are old stock and NEW stores only stock NEW stock. Bit obvious really.

Look out for the Student alarms reduced from £10.00 to £1.00 nationwide. They consist of an alarm and a couple of padlocks but that's got to be worth a quid.

What is the point in going to P'boro if you live on the border of essex / cambridge, which is over 30miles from Cambridge and aprox 60 from essex. so hardly a suitable place to go to! it's not exactly "next door is it now.

surely it would be easier just to ask the person rather than looking on them. Umm. Yes, yes it would. as I said, the internet maps aren't always the best method to help you.

none in warrington at either store

None in Reading

So now the RAC maps dont work :roll:

Blimey..even the store locator has a navigational tool on the page.

You are correct..it is easier to ask... for YOU. But its also just plain lazy.

But then it was hard for you to comprehend why B&Q offered Peterborough as an alternative to Cambridge And I dont see you thanking me for that explanation either.

Its the equivalent of saying the Argos locator is rubbish. I checked for stock in Eastleigh, but it offered me to search in Winchester. WInchester isnt even in Eastleigh. How rubbish is that ?? lol
