This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Granted not many can take advantage, but whoever happens to be at an airport with dixons travel shop, grab yourself a massive bargain until they change price.

'managers special' @347, priced matched against argos which is 249.95 and double the difference, making this 152.90. I wanted to clear their stock but they only had one, still well chuffed with the result. Now I am glad I never picked up my argos reservation at a time

surely but that was one particular store (Luton), but there are more around UK, that's why I mentioned in the post not many can grab, but if you are at an airport it's worth a try, ain't it?
Bloody hell that price is ridiculously cheap
a really hard deal to get, suspect they will refuse to sell these if asked.....never seen a deal like that come off...

They can't refuse it that's their policy. The guy who was serving me said he would take it himself if he knew

They can refuse if they want to, there's no legal obligation with any of these price promises.

A retailer can refuse to sell an item if they decide to.

I imagine anyone else tried this will get some excuse about stock suddenly being unavailable.

Many price promises made by retailers will be on unique products, everso slightly different model number with subtle differences, so they can promise so much knowing it's often a worthless promise.

Click through to the deal and you can see the locations, Newcastle, Manchester and others, so if you're local enough could be worth popping in,I assume the shops are in the area of the airport before you've gone through security.

They aren't. What's the cheapest Ryanair flight?
Brilliant price, not many will avail but heat anyway. Good spot OP
Wtaf?
Silly question, are these shops all airside (living 5 minutes from Gatwick this is an excellent deal!). Heat added, if only one other person gets one!

Did you really just post a full picture of your receipt. It's not like you payed with cash, you payed with card, op delete the comment it has sensitive personal info. Highly recommended.

Lol what kinda sensitive information? Last 4 digits of card? Or maybe the destination airport? Or maybe the assistants name? I think people are too sensitive, there is no full personal information here. At all.

The only thing is the imei, but I am still failing to understand how one could utilise an imei number of a phone they have absolutely no association with.

Excellent phone got this from Argos for 250 recently.I was saving up for an mi 9 for around 300 but chose this for a couple of reasons,one been the two year guarantee buying from UK seller.Other reasons include better more advanced face unlock.bigger battery but the main reason been I detest in screen fingerprint readers after having one on my mate 20 pro that I sold.The camera is fantastic the battery life is 6-8 hours screen on time a day and with latest updates the notch can be hidden again just looks like a six inch screen instead of 6.2 with notch.Also the camera has ois which the mi 9 camera doesn't have.Advise to download Poco launcher it has double tap to sleep and other good options.I set the phone to double tap to wake and face unlock works instant then double tap to sleep,used to love these features when lg brought them out with the G3.

dixonstravel.com/pri…cy/ they take off twice the difference from their original price so you end up paying the difference less, than the retailer you are price matching against.
I remember there was a thing a few years ago using this that have a free (or ridiculously xheap) pair of beats headphones

The IMEI number can be blacklisted so the phone cannot be used.

IMEI.info: If your phone was lost or stolen and you want to report it on the Blacklist you should contact the operator from which the phone was purchased or your local police force. To report may be needed documents confirming the purchase and the IMEI number of the phone.

Surely no one is gonna turn up in a police station saying - hey look, I have this photo, can you block this imei?

Is it just me or are people too sensitive about this?

Myself, I don't know, but some people out there can do a lot of stuff with very little material. Like that that one time when Clarkson put out his account number as a challanges saying people couldn't use it and then he found out someone had started a direct debit on his card to a charity. Id advise caution.

You have a receipt for proof of purchase and the IMEI number. What more do you need to blacklist it?

To blacklist an IMEI in the UK is done via the network operator and they check that the IMEI has been used on that network on the reporting account before blacklisting. You couldn’t just ring up and ask to blacklist a random IMEI.
The op is now not alone in getting the deal sadly it wasn't me though...
Friend got one in Heathrow very early, I suspect they probably changed the price or all the staff bought them, said there was 2 but only sold one..
Edited by: "winchman" 27th Jun
Went to Heathrow terminal 3 today and it was on display. Spent a while considering if I wanted it or not but didn't go for it. Just in case it helps anyone!
