Buy one get one free offers!!

Cracks me up that a lot of retailers prmote fantastic "Buy one get one free" offers yet you know full well that last week that item was half the value.

The problem is when you know the value of an item and someone sstill tries to pull it off.

Cracking example here. Saw promo for BOGOF Spurs shirt. Then I saw the price

60 for a footy shirt!! Do one !!

Its never the majority of the time buy one get one free.

They sucker you in with the word "free" but the price of the product is always expensive so you are basically just spending more money than you think.

Re: Buy one get one free offers!!

And to be perfectly honest, the idea that anyone is stupid enough to spend 60 quid on a shirt that they're only going to be able to wear for a year and that will make them look like someone from the benefit office queue just underlines the fact that we desperately need to have a cull of the feeble minded.

True for the most part but if I were a season ticket holder I would want a shirt to wear every week to show my support.
Agreed though 60 is silly money.

I've still got Chelsea's shirt from 4 years ago. I prefer it to the later kits and it only got me 25

Re: Buy one get one free offers!!

I have an old Sheff Wed shirt from When they were sponsored by Chuppa Chups.

Don't wear it anymore. Plat knows why.
