Thank you. I had a plug delivery a few days ago, they look great and because they had to sub out a few choices they dropped a fiver code in the packaging so I might order some veg plugs with it and see what happens.
I appreciate my actions read as some kind of cockamamie anecdote but I can assure you the perceived intentions are not for personal frivolity. I've got myself into a pickle and I just seem to be lurching from one predicament to another. To try and cover over my series of blunders I left a fake 1 star review of YouGarden on Trust Pilot - blaming their logistics and poor customer service. I received a call from their legal team not long after leaving my comments and they were throwing words at me like slander, libel and defamation. I keep panicking and buying more Patio Potato Packs for £21.96 thinking my loyal custom will make all the issues go away. ;(
Must be because the posters actions make no sense at all to me.
I thought by refusing the order they'd be sent back under the distance selling regulations, as someone suggested above. I didn't want the courier to get in any trouble so I just ordered them again to save any aggrevation. 5% works out at just under £1.10. Not a massive saving but better in my pocket than theirs.
Because they're taking the piss and for some baffling reason it's going over peoples heads.
Maybe I've got this wrong and if I have I apologise, but from what you've said it appears you ordered from this company at a cost of £21.96, you then refused delivery and they are refusing to refund you, so you have no potatoes and you've lost all your money. Why would you then place another order with the same company just because they gave you a 5% discount, seems bizarre to me when you could get seed potatoes locally at a fraction of this price?
Because buddy with one I'm drinking what's in the container and not the container itself. That's personal choice. Thanks for highlighting tho that I said the same the regarding the beans.. It proves there's some truth in my experience.. I don't have a vendetta with Branston as I use other products. I'm purely speaking from experience with this one
I have been shopping with Iceland for 30 years, originally instore, then phone ordering and online since that option started. The free delivery was an incentive when compared to the other supermarkets delivery charges. With ASDA and Sainsburys offering £1 delivery slots, and the possibility of fulfilling a complete order as opposed to a limited range at higher prices from Iceland it is difficult to see they are competitive, (there is a no option fixed charge for carrier bags). Iceland tend to increase prices then use the higher price for a future discount promo. One of their best buys was Strawberry Cheesecake at a good price of just £1. I have just checked my online order where the product box is printed with the normal £1 price, but shopping list price increased to £1.25, obviously a 25% price increase ! At Morrisons the equal product Strawberry Cheesecake is still only 99p. So overall I am finding less interest in shopping at Iceland.
Shame it's max 4 units, I would have spent the £25 on beans if I could.
You said almost the same thing last year on a Branston beans deal yet don't say anything else on other products that have BPA in the container. Have Branston personally upset you or something. Also if you're that bothered about what you're consuming you wouldn't be drinking Monster Energy drinks, but there we go.
I had to switch back to Heinz after a batch of Branston tins smelled of something like urine inside. I don't know if anyone else noticed anything strange about them lately.
There was a newspaper article about it last year, they did the plant equivalent of a DNA test on them and found potatoes.that were advertised as Maris pipers were in fact a completely different variety. It was featured on one of the consumer programmes too. Dont shoot the messenger, I'm not a food expert, just commenting on what the experts have found
That is absolutely ridiculous to say they are not Maris piper when they are labelled MP. What proof have you off this ? None so either state facts or say nothing.
Return them if not fit for human consumption!
I've stopped buying mainstream supermarket potatoes, quality is awful!! Asda sell Maris pipers that aren't actually Maris pipers and most are just watery mush. Carrots the same too.
