I'm at work at the moment and put my home no. down as contact, so hopefully will have a message on answerphone. If they offer me the same, I'll take it....was looking to order a shed anyway.

Is the £79 inclusive of delivery or plus delivery?

Just had my call too..... offered 20% discount on the actual price of £249.99 and £10 gift voucher either way. Suppose it was a bit too good to be true.

honestly dont bother, i used to put sheds up for a living and these are rubbish. cheap wood, awful felt, waste of money.

i reckon if you ask they will do free delivery - :thumbsup:

Same here, full price £250 which is rediculous for the **** quality sheds they sell but would be ok if cheap! Declined 20% reduction, £10 voucher on its way!

You sure.........are you..........are you...............are you??? ;-):p

Hi all does anyone know how homebase charges would appear on your credit card. I had a call from them to cancel the shed..ok - - BUT i now see a charge on my credit card from Argos Direct for £ 35.93 and i have not bought anything from Argos. ! ( WARNING BELLS ! )

Yep...will appear as Argos. Nothing to worry about (although I did for a sec afternoon seeing my CC statement)!!

Thanks for the reply but how do you mean nothing to worry about.. will they credit it ? ( eg. without me jumping on them ?) :w00t:

i was offered the shed for £140 but i refused to pay and they said they would send me some vouchers, i think our pants have been pulled down

I received a call saying i could have it for £79 or cancel and receive a £10 voucher,I went for the voucher as i am not too bothered about the shed,However i believe under the distance selling regulations that if they have already taken the money from youre account then the contract has been accepted and they have to let you have the shed at the advertised price,the only way they can cancel is if they havent taken the money yet,
Tony

Section 2.3 stipulates that a contract is formed at the point goods are despatched, not at the point of payment.

Or that's what they told me........

I got a £10 voucher out of it so somthing for nothing.
