Point of sale.


Thats not what POS means to me
Still would rather buy from amazon than them
I can't stand Currys, but at least they pay their taxes - and for that reason they get my vote over Amazon.

Big businesses avoiding taxes means the shortfall has to be made up by everyone else paying higher taxes, thus it's a false economy to buy from tax avoiding big businesses.

For the above reason, I'll put up with Currys crap and buy from them at the same price.

Most acronyms have more than one definition.
They will do anything to get out of price matching though, total waste of time

Wouldn't you do the same if it was your company. If it's not the same model then no price match. Simple.

Gullible generation marking assumption's you mean, Amazon are just another rip off merchant, sure they where good to start with but they have gotten more expensive plus the cutting the business into two with this prime rubbish is just a load of BS similar to that of currys.

I'm going to buy a hacksaw today and some glue, i could have got them Monday but I didn't as i checked them out and assumed I'd be able to get them cheaper online, that was wrong, i do the same two trips for a increasing amount of things, most recently for adhesive foam weather strips, bubble wrap, duct tape, light bulbs etc, i will be buying a oil filled radiator again from a high street shop soon after much investigation on prices.
Why post a pre 2010 video.

probably because underneath currys is still the same as it was in 2010, or even further back

I’m not sure you are right by saying prime pays for itself, it’s just easier. Amazon used to be cheaper and it is a clever business model that once into prime you can’t really order anywhere else.

First they wouldn't match john lewis because it was being delivered direct from manufacturer, then they wouldn't match john lewis because they had a different guarantee which means basically they cant match john lewis on anything as they offer a better guarantee than currys does

Prime can shove off, i prefer lockers so its irrelevant to me

Just a heads up i got my hacksaw for £1 in poundland, thats cheaper then Amazon and i got my glue for £1.50 in a independent DIY\homeware shop again cheaper then Amazon for that size tube of uhu.

No minimum spend for free postage, no subscription, no waiting for delivery.

Prime is a mugs game I bet you people order stuff just because they are paying for it and want to feel like its value for money, its a wonderful way to hook suckers in pointlessly

Try Argos on ebay, I got a cracker last year at a great price.

I was going to get the own brand 0.45kw or 1kw model.

0.45kw? What are going to heat? The dog kennel?

The living room, currently i keep sitting in front of a fan heater, I'm sealing up the windows as best i can and i got brush things to stop cold air getting under the door.

So I've got foam strips to put round the window where cold gets in, poor mans double glazing aka bubble wrap for the windows that are opaque anyway, the brushes that go along the doors, I'm hoping it will all be enough

.45kw is really weak though. I know they cost money to run but a 1kw or even 1'5 oil filled radiator will still be much cheaper than your 800w fan heater. They are outrageously inefficient. How much are the ones you're looking at?

Have a look here mate

the question we should be asking is who are paying more tax and more jobs per 1 million sales, then whoever the winner is ill buy from them at the matched price
If you try a price match, don't email.

I emailed, waited a week then got this:

Emailed them back, they didn't call. Been 10 days now. Their price match only applies 7 days after purchase. And of course all the prices have changed now, so the matches I sent in are useless.

Prime is definitely not a mugs game. To buy the same thing elsewhere I have to pay for delivery on top. If I go to a shop the item simply costs more and I’ve forked out in petrol. Example, today I wanted some Bolle Trackers, on Amazon they’re £9 and free next day delivery with Prime. At screwfix they’re £12 plus petrol costs.
I use Amazon Video to watch Grand tour and plenty other bits and bobs.

Just because you have no use for Prime, it doesn’t mean everyone else is a mug for making use of it.

You can watch grand tour for free on internets, i needed curtain wire nearly 4 feets worth, Amazon was useless, found a seller on ebay who will do it any length you want, free postage, less then half the price of the cheapest on Amazon.
Amazon are not cheap are you telling me your subscription doesn't encourage you at all to not shop around.

You can't say Prime is worth less simply because you support piracy
No I definitely shop around, just recently I bought my Sonos speakers from Curry's and then Dixon's Duty Free. I only buy from Amazon if it's cheaper than elsewhere but for what I buy they do tend to be cheaper and I've definitely saved on delivery costs. I also buy stuff from eBay too because as you said Amazon doesn't stock everything.
Today I'll probably be buying a Galaxy S8. If Curry's will price match Amazon then I'll get it from them, if not, I'll get it from Amazon.
