    How do we get this? Promo code?
    its exactly the same as the other website - identical. I am going to air on the side of caution on this, seeing as mo gave a warning about the last sight, and if anyone knows, mo knows. He buys everything :teeth:

    They're exactly the same company. Both registered to the same address (see the footer on both websites). Seems weird.

    I don't like the way they deal with payments. Fair enough doing the whole credit thing but I'd prefer a straight up payment method like the majority of online shops have. Websites like that aren't my cup of tea.

    They are all part of the the Shop Direct group, there is quite a few companies they own.

    Did you try opening a credit account with Very, cos I think that's what you might have done. Have a look at this code on HUKD cos it sounds similar http://www.hotukdeals.com/vouchers/2...stomers/754404

    But like I've said to defoe already, the problem with all of these websites is that a couple of months down the line they may take the money they refunded you back out of your account which is the only problem they have. I used a code with Very to buy my iPod touch and it worked fine but that was the only code I've ever used with them.

    why do they do that? have multiple companies under one company? Is it to aid in sales? Or something more sinister, allowing sub companies to tranfer money between each other etc, transfering debts and so on?

    I wouldnt mind betting a few of those catelogues sell exactly the same thing, for exactly the same price and have exactly the same deals

    Some of them would have started as individual companys and then bought by a bigger company?

    Like PC World, Currys, Dixon all come under DSGi.

    Hi, can some people help me out. I am looking at booking a trip to paris for me and the gf for over christmas, christmas eve / christmas day / boxing day but i have no idea on decent prices ( i am by no means loaded !) or any idea on locations of hotels etc.... I want to fly from London so that needs to be taken in to consideration.

    Basicaly, even though its christmas, she will want to go and see all the sights etc so dont want to be too far away as no doubt public transport will be limited at that time of the year

    Will + rep if anyone can help me out at all

    thanks
    :pierre: Surely it's cheaper to fly to get the stupid train to France? I noticed some suggested getting the Eurostar.

    I gets to use Economics here! :woo:

    A couple of reasons why they might not want to/be allowed to merge. One is that because each has built up its brand then making a new brand would make them lose customers...takes time to built brand loyalty etc. Usually it makes more sense just to keep companies separate although they parent company might save money if they were to merge but that just depends. You'd be so surprised at the number of companies that compete against each other and are owned by the same parent company.
    Like if you have a look at Procter & Gamble and you can see that in a few markets they own companies which compete against each other...

    Btw where were you last night? Just two of us in SnD and we dominated! :teehee:

    Yeah I've told them I won't play RUSE with them till they finish the campaign so at least its some kind of challenge :p:

    I hate HC mainly cos of team killers although they did the right thing making it HC ricochet so it was probably the enemy who shot you cos if a team mate shot you they'd die instead of you.

    I should be on this afternoon...

    lol yeah he's so slow at it though...

    Yeah for game modes which state HC Ricochet then damage at friendlies is reflected back at the shooter...its because people used to join HC SnD just to team kill right at the start so they were forced to make this alterations...
