Sales and Discounts
We aim to offer our best and most competitive pricing all year round. We do not run promotional site-wide discounts during Black Friday, Boxing Day or other traditional sales periods.
As a business, we need to make a base margin to cover our costs and expenses, heavy discounting periods inevitably mean a reduction in margins during sales periods, which must then be made up by selling at higher prices during non-sale periods. This really does not benefit us or our customers. Why pay more for 90% of the year?
Black Friday discounts are generally misleading consumers. Brands will often price establish products at wildly high prices in the summer, before ‘discounting’ to offer ‘value’ during select periods.
By cramming in sales to a few weeks every year, these sales periods just create problems in our warehouse and operations.
We want our customers to be sure that we offer fair pricing all year round that are reflective of the prices we pay and what the products are actually worth.
We will only price match on products that you have found on other reputable online websites.
The product should be exactly the same and without any modifications and should be in stock.
It must be brand new and not in used condition.
