Homebase special offers mean raising prices so you spend more
Difficult to know what to say about this - fortunately the screenshots are fairly self-explanatory.
Thanks to regular reader The Couch for tipping us off to Homebase's special offer on Richmond Oak Effect Flooring. Here's a cached version of the flooring from 24 June - just a week ago:
There's nothing to indicate there's a special offer on the product at that time, or that it was temporarily reduced in price. The price per pack was £27.67, which works out at £19.99 per square metre; the minimum order was six packs, meaning the total price was £166.02.
Same product, same pack - the product number and all the small print is identical - but now there's a special offer! Buy one get second half price! So you pay less, right?
Special offers at Homebase - like how Rocky Dennis was special in the film Mask, yeah?
