The Missing One Pence

I have been on the lookout for a wee present for the Mhinisteir and I finally found one on the Holland and Barrett website. The cost of the item was £30 which meant that I automatically qualified for free delivery. Yay!!!!

Just as I was checking out, there was a popup that said I would be able to get a further discount if I entered a certain code. I entered it and it worked. I got £6 off the item which was fantastic but wait… that meant that I was £1 short of free delivery! Ordinarily delivery cost is £3.99 but if you spend £25 or more you qualify for free delivery. I decided to get a snack item for a pound to qualify for free delivery.

Guess what? There was none for £1! All the snacks cost £0.99!!!!!! It must be a marketing ploy!!! After several attempts, I decided to add a dairy free chocolate bar costing £1.79 to my basket. It certainly cost less than the delivery charge but was it worth the kerfuffle??? I really don’t know!!
