No Discount @ Currys,Comet or PC World!

#1
Went to treat Mrs Ralf to a laptop and not one of the above do Forces discount. A bloody poor show considering the side of these big companies. Shall take my £500 plus elsewhere that supports HM Forces.

Currys,Comet and PC World named and shamed!

I've got discount at pc world by asking politely. Getting extras chucked in free is easier. Try dabs.com they might have something cheaper.

Not really relevant to miserly companies not offering military discounts but just in case you weren't aware, a quick search for promotion codes on google can lead to good discounts. I bought my laptop from Dell and used a promotion code I found on the net and got a good few hundred off. Well worth trying. :)

As much as I appreciate the concept of a Forces Discount, it seems a bit OTT to expect one.
Although if it guided the OP away from PC World then so much the better. After they f*cked me about from pillar to post, I wish someone had warned me just how appalling they are. This was after the saga of the twice debited account (Uberware) and before I eventually landed on the excellence that are Novatech.

How very dare they not give us discounts? Don't they know we are all heroes?

On a sensible note, Novatech are excellent, check them out online or call into one of their shops where (unlike PC world) you'll be served by someone who knows what they are talking about and can be bothered to check stock levels. - only thing against them, they don't post to BFPO addresses.

Yep, Novatech are excellent. Just round the corner from me, the laptop I'm typing from was bought from them.

Named and shames? For what? On no, private companies didnt want to lose money, outrageous.
Is there any reason they should be expected to give you a discount?

Why should they give HM Forces a discount? They don't have to.

T'wasn't a complaint, just an observation.

I forgot to add that their live chat thing is quite good, and their own brand items are good quality and cheap!

Wash your mouth out with soap you cheeky rapscallion!!

Every business ran for profit should halve all its prices at the sight of a MOD 90!! How dare they not offer up their clacker at someone who is paid to do the job they volunteered to do?
