In the shops now! - VAT's not a deal, ebuyer.com
Bitterwallet reader Gary spotted a good deal in the latest email business flyer from eBuyer.com - a Samsung ML-1630W Mono Network Laser Printer with Wireless for just £75 + VAT:
A bargain thought Gary, and so the innocent fool was sucked in by the marketing and clicked through to the site:
"Click on the link and it sends you to the website where it actually costs £127 including VAT," said a disappointed Gary. "I'm no good at maths, but I know from working it out on my abacus that £75 + 15 per cent is not £127."
Alas, Gary is correct. Bah. More deals or no deals please, from the real world for the fantastical realm of the interwebz, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
