Saw Melanie Martinez in concert last night up London, was an amazing experience, best I've been to! great atmosphere and everything.
Couldn't find a general bargains topic and so this seemed like the best place to post this...
I think this may be a pricing mistake by Amazon, they're selling 6x Cadbury heroes advent calendars for £6. There's also a by 4 and save a further 5%.
sigh ..I'm with HSBC and the banking app is down. I've been thinking of moving banks and might actually do it now.
Probably the publisher trying to save costs and push customers towards the 'higher quality' eBooks market. I can't remember the last time I purchased a new book, last couple have been 2nd hand from charity shops (as "that sounds interesting" or borrowed from the local libraryI hadn’t bought a new paperback book for quite some time, but recently I’ve been on a bit of a reading kick so I went for a good browse in some bookshops today.
What the hell has happened to the print quality of new paperbacks? Half of them look like they’ve been shat out of a cheap 1980s laser printer, the text is grey and blurred and publishers have the gall to charge £8-£10 for this sh*te? You’re actually better off getting old copies from charity shops for a couple of quid, at least the print on those doesn’t make you wonder if you need glasses even when it’s in focus.
It's an indictment of the sorry state of anime merch that, when you mentioned a figure, I assumed the amount would be closer to £200 than £20. It's an aggravating situation no matter the price though.I made the epic mistake of buying a figure from a website I hadn't bought from for a while (Rawckz) without bothering to look for any recent reviews.
I saw they hadn't updated any of their social media since 2019, but they've been at conventions in 2023 (and they've got products from 2022 shows on their site), so I figured they just didn't do social media anymore.
Weeks later and I've got no figure (it's supposedly in stock!) and no reply when I contacted them. It seems like this is a common experience with them nowadays - their Trustpilot reviews are awful.
Now I'm waiting for Mr Paypal to conduct a full and indepth investigation so I can get my £20 back!
