    Buying A Light Fitting From B&Q?

    I purchased two light fittings yesterday in B&Q and noticed when paying that one of the boxes had been opened.

    The light bulbs were not in the box. The light I was purchasing should have had 6X GU10 bulbs halogen. I asked the cashier if I could get a discount on the item as there were parts missing. She called the manager and the manager told me to go and get some bulbs for the light fitting.

    I chose bulbs costing £8.98 each!. The cashier scanned them through the checkout and refunded me the cost, saving me £53.88! Although I did spend £239 on light fittings!

    Nice One.

    So your tip is to ensure you get in the box what you pay for....?

    Sorry but - seriously?
