    Mate has the Serano SJ1500B_C that i liked the looked of

    Well costs £249.00 on the ]Curry's website , being the bargain hunter that i am (:-p) I decided to search around and found the white version for £100 @ ]Dixons website, I thought i'd try and get Currys to price match the black stand to the white one... thats when things got weird.

    I found the black stand else where on the Currys website for ]£999.99!!!!

    I think it's suppose to be £99.99, let me give them a quick ring and if they agree i'll go and collect it, then i can blag about bragging a 1000% discount. HAHA.

    Could you explain the discount being 1000% :thinking:

    Surely it's more like a 90% discount, anything over 100% and they'd be paying you to take it.
    Still a nice find though.

    Your both completely right lol it is 90%, I'm thinking in terms of £999.99 from £99.99 instead of to. Give me slack people it was like 2 am and i had just woken up. lol

    Grrrrrrrr.......
    Bloody gits!
    Just spent half hour on the phone and whilst admitting that the £999.99 is a mistake. They were adamant they couldn't price match Dixons, because "Dixons dont have any stores, they're only based online"! Of course they are you prat, your parent company DSG decided that they should be as such! Their perfectly in their progative to not price match but its dead annoying, when everyone knows their the same company. With such obvious sneakiness in simply trying to extract more money from the customers no wonder DSG is going bankrupt...

    I didn't think that companies price-matched within their own group, are DSG different?

    Nope they don't price match, but they cite other excuses, no stores withing 5 mile radius etc etc

    I've noticed the product code for the black one is 536375 - maybe worth a call to pcworld to see if they can help?

    I wouldn't buy a TV stand from PCW/Currys as they are ridiculously overpriced, i always see TV Stands posted here for around the £40 mark, why not try one of those?

    The stand is probably £999 because it forms part of a package deal and stops muppets from selling it seperately.

    Your best bet is to note the product code and go into your local currys and see if they have one and if they'll do the offer deal on its own (they might if they have a few they want to get rid of) or at least get them to tell you where locally does have them and get the stores direct line numbers otherwise you'll have to go through central call handling and they very rarely know their r's from their elbows.
