Something that you'd have to touch and feel I think before shelling out £600, but it's a well-known brand and it would be fine for the home mechanic or an Apprentice starting out. SnapOn it will not be but not everyone needs or wants to shell out many £1000's on the same stuff
Isn't Hilka just the same rebadged stuff like Sealey? - It sure looks similar to my Sealey "American Pro' tool box I got some years ago, it's ok but far from being 'pro' and I paid about half this price, albeit with half the tools bundled (allegedly for free and boy where they junk) This might be an ok starter kit for someone just getting into mechanics but I suspect the quality is average at best and I'd want to see the tools before spending that much on a 'brand' like Hilka.
Hilka doesn't do it for me!
Red torch looks like a 9 led no beam cheapo worst torch going jobby , the rest of this does seem good value and decent quality

These are great. Got bought one last Xmas for work mornings. Stays pretty damn hot for up to 2 hours later and is more than drinkable/hot enough nearly 4 hours after making. That sat in the back of an unheated/insulated van.
Also at reading store - looks like national deal
Is this nationwide?
“Spill proof” Should also be “drink proof” as they keep the drink so hot for so long you can’t actually drink it (lol)
Brilliant cups and a cracking price. Paid £18 recently and they are still worth the higher price.
I heard these are good if you have a wood burner/open fire. Reduces pm 2.5? Anyone know about this?
I have it, it's nice and quiet. Had it for 3 months, runs non-stop, it says in the app the carbon filter is at 60% health, the HEPA filter is at 80%. Yes looks like filters are expensive but I'll just buy replacements from eBay/Amazon when the time comes. Really not much to write about, it's literally an appliance that you put in the corner of your room, switch on, and don't think about it. You can see it ramp up nicely when you start cooking etc, in night mode it's almost inaudible.
Whilst is doesn't state any different, bear in mind this is not a dehumidifier. Whereas, for another £70, you get an excellent dehumidifier and air purifier combined https://www.amazon.co.uk/Meaco-20L-Energy-Dehumidifier-Condensation/dp/B00HO963A6
Look up the price of filters and be prepared to replace it every 6 months if left on constantly.
Could do with one of these for when the dog lets one rip

Great price. This is a wonderful version. I plan on getting them all.
Good price so heated. Also the second book is out by Mina Lima. Have started collecting their signed copies from their own website.
I have this and it’s incredible. Hands down the best edition of this book with imaginative illustrations on plate pages and around the text and even some 3D sections. I have the Jim Kay version too and it’s good but this is great by comparison.
Great price! This is £35 in the Mina Lima gallery in London. Some copies in Glasgow branch when I visited last week.

… OMG my lad virtually loves in it. 😳
This Sienna one on Amazon is often recommended and has lots of good reviews: Sienna Hoodie Blanket Oversized Ultra Soft Plush Sherpa Fleece Wearable Warm Throw Blanket Cosy Giant Sweatshirt - Black https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08KFHDPY9/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_2185Z7KVTAAHXTACJ959?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Bought a childs version for about £15 from Costco last year and OMG my lad virtually lives in it. Which then brought me to ordering an adult one from Amazon and when it arrived it was a foreign copy nothing like how nice the original kids one was. I sent the Amazon fake packing and ordered another genuine one and the wife loves it especially in these winter evenings and she wears it when I won't put the heating on in the daytime as we are still working from home :D Can't speak for the Primarks and the like but the copy I received was nothing like in quality and feel.
If you take the cartridge out of the cleaner and pop the lid on it after each use it lasts many months if you clean the shaver once a week. You are losing most of the cleaning solution through evaporation when its not in use.
Agreed. There's no easy way to clean them out and refill. It never works as well no matter what you try, even if you get proper shaver cleaning solution rather than just IPA. Hopefully we'll see a way of reducing the plastic waste in the near future. Until then I have to continue to regretfully discard another one of these every single month.
Its annoyingly wasteful on plastics because it doesn't last very long once opened. I tried refilling it with isopropyl etc but isn't quite the same... very frustrating product, but I suppose it is a good deal...
Still showing as full price at Trafford this evening but discounted when put through the till, so worth checking. Apparently it’s the old stock from last year with product code starting 200 which are the discounted ones
Full price Oldham
Again, compare this with the prices of other Jim Shore figures of this size. These are collector pieces.
£50 & its so small!!! It's a rip off it's worth £10 at best to be honest...Costco pulling the wool over ppls eyes with this silly deal

Your Costco Delivery

Standard Delivery for Small and Medium-Sized Items
Parcel Force, Royal Mail or UPS are used for this service. You will be given an estimated delivery date at the checkout.
A delivery time for these will be booked when your order is ready for dispatch. While most items will be carried into your home, this option does not include set-up or assembly.
Book this option and 'White Glove' agents will not only deliver bulky goods but unpack, inspect and set them up in a room of your choice. They will then remove and carefully dispose of any packaging. You will be notified of the delivery date when goods are ready for dispatch.
If the unit price of anything in your order exceeds £5,000 it qualifies for this delivery service. Such items are always dispatched individually via a trusted, insured and traceable courier. You will need to sign for these goods when they arrive.
Grocery items take two business days to arrive and there is a flat rate delivery charge of £5.99 with no minimum spend.
Making Costco Returns
Costco is so confident with the quality and value of its stock that everything comes with a risk-free 100% satisfaction guarantee. With very few exceptions (including customised products) all items can be returned but must be in a resaleable condition. The refund you receive will include delivery fees while making returns is free. There are three ways you can make Costco returns:
If you are a Warehouse Member you can return items to your nearest Costco warehouse. You will need to present some proof of purchase.
You can make a postal return by requesting a prepaid returns label. To do this, log in to your account, open My Orders and select Return Items. Follow the prompts to fill in and print your label.

Keep your home and business budget on track by liking and following Costco on:
Costco UK is part of an American multinational corporation, a corporation that owns enough stores around the globe to make it the world's fifth-largest retailer. The first Costco warehouse was opened in Seattle in 1983 by Jim Sinegal and Jeffrey H. Brotman. Costco still has its headquarters in Seattle. The latest figures (2021) show that there are 804 Costco warehouses worldwide including 29 in the United Kingdom. Costco employs nearly a quarter of a million people and has over 105 million members. The brand keeps prices low by operating on very small margins - no regular stock item can be marked up more than 14% over its cost price while company running costs are only 10% of revenue and profit margins just 2%. Owing to its size and operating methods, Costco wields great buying power - it once refused to stock Coca-Cola products until the soft-drink brand agreed to lower its wholesale prices.
The Costco Product Range
The trick when shopping at Costco is to visit regularly as its stock is constantly changing and different items feature in its Hot Buys and Offers sections. As well as its Grocery and Household department, the Costco website also features 22 other main categories such as:
Furniture & Home
Whether you're furnishing a home, office or restaurant choosing the right furniture creates the right atmosphere of comfort, welcome (and productivity). Costco living room furniture is cosy and hard-wearing while its dining tables and chairs invite you to sit down and enjoy a meal with friends and family. Design a relaxing haven in your bedroom while Costco office furniture is functional, streamlined and stylishly contemporary. The Furniture and Home department also includes soft furnishings, appliances, accessories and ornaments.
Electronics & Security
A new television, camera upgrade or the latest smartphone along with smart technology for security and surveillance all feature in the Electronics and Security section. Whether you're a techie wizard or new to electronics, you'll find something here for your needs. This department also has musical instruments.
Toys, Baby & Child
When you buy basic baby products such as nappies, wipes, toiletries and formula in bulk you make substantial savings on the heavy costs of raising a family. As well as these essential items, the Toys, Baby and Child department also sells fun and educational toys along with nursery furniture, bedding and books.
Business & Office Supplies
Whether you're working from home or run a busy office, Costco has the supplies you need to meet your targets and complete your projects - all at prices designed to keep your running costs low. From office electronics and signage to printer ink and the all-important coffee and tea, you'll find them in Business and Office Supplies.
Cake & Deli
Cake and Deli is a department with a difference. This is where you can celebrate a colleague's birthday or a family occasion with a cake of your choice. With just 72-hours notice, Costco members can pre-order a sheet-decorated cake finished with a message of their choice. This is where you'll also find tasty platters of sandwiches, wraps, canapes, and bite-sized desserts perfect for both home and office get-togethers.
The Costco Shopping Experience
Costco warehouses are huge places so if you plan on shopping in-store make a list before you go. You can find your nearest Costco warehouse by entering your postcode on the Costco website. Shopping the thousands of products Costco have online is made easier by the departments that start at the main menu bar. Then narrow down your search by filtering for category, brand, price, size, colour and more. A similar retailer that requires membership for shopping is Makro while other stores that carry huge and varied product lines are Argos, Amazon and The Range.
Getting the Best Costco Deals
Once you've signed up for Costco Membership, you're guaranteed bargain prices and great discounts across thousands of products from food and health to furniture and electronics. Hit Membership Offers or Hot Buys on the menu bar and you'll open the door to even more money-saving Costco UK offers. These Costco UK deals apply both online and in-store. And, in late November, Costco doesn't just have one day of savings for Black Friday, it releases a whole week's worth of Costco promotions. You can also save money on both online and in-store shopping by checking in regularly with hotukdeals and picking up a Costco discount code.
How Costco Membership Works
To start enjoying substantial savings on your shopping whether it's for personal use or your business, you need to be a Costco Member. Anyone over 18 can become a member and then your membership number must be entered when shopping online or your membership card presented when shopping in-store. There are four types of Costco Membership (all of which are valid for 12 months):
Executive Membership: The annual cost for this is £56 plus VAT for Trade members and £62 plus VAT for individuals. A complimentary partner card is also included. Executive membership can only be used in Costco warehouses and not for online purchases.
Trade Membership: The annual fee for this is £22 plus VAT and this also includes a complimentary partner card. Extra cards can be added at a cost of £14 plus VAT each.
Individual Membership: This costs £28 plus VAT (including a complimentary partner card). One further household card can be added for £14 plus VAT.
Online Only Membership: If you will only be shopping with Costco online, then annual membership costs just £15 plus VAT.
