    Steve and I had some much needed time alone together on Sunday. MIL had Fran for lunch while we went into Derby for food and then to see a film.

    We had a wander around the shops too and bought Fran a gorgeous denim dress set from Debenhams - it was £26 but I couldn't resist it!

    When we got home that evening I wanted to show someone it so went onto the website to get the link - and it had been reduced to £20.80!!!!

    Turns out they are having a big sale but it's exclusively online until Weds when it will then be rolled out in the stores.

    I'm so bloody mad - I feel penalised for being a loyal customer who actually bothers to make an effort and visit a store! I never buy clothes online unless I've seen them in real life first. How stupid to reduce prices online days before the stores? It's just not fair!

    Sorry - needed to get that off my chest lol.

    I know it's so annoying :growlmad: I guess with the p&p you'd pay it isn't as much but it's stupid to have sales just online I think or I store even, it should be both or nothing

    It's free p+p on everything at the moment too!!! I'm seriously considering ordering one online and returning the one I've got when I'm in Derby next week. I know it's only a fiver, but that's a pack of nappies!

    That is annoying. I'd buy it online at the cheaper price and take the other one back.
