Price Policy on Clearance/Sale Prices
In some instances items may have been sold at their original prices on the website or in the catalogue of one of our Scotts & Co. (Scotts Ltd) sister companies and items may not necessarily have ever sold previously on this company's website. Details of all the Scotts & Co. (Scotts Ltd) brands are available on request.
We always strive to bring our customers the best possible offers and deals whilst ensuring to operate fair commercial practices without misleading our customers.
Where we detail price reductions on our web-site the following pricing policy shall apply: The 'WAS' price shown next to an item on this website is the highest price at which the item has been offered for sale in the last 12 months by us or one of our sister company publications (details on request). Some items have been offered for sale at a price lower than the 'WAS' price during the last 12 months but, unless otherwise indicated, the 'NOW' price shown is the lowest price at which the item has been offered by us. Details of intervening prices are available on request. In all cases the 'WAS' price will have applied for a continuous period of 28 days or more.
Clearance and Promotions
Clearance products and promotions are subject to availability and are not an indication of availability. Offers may be changed or withdrawn without notice by Scotts & Co. (Scotts Ltd) at any time. We reserve the right to cancel a promotion / reject redemption of a promotional code when stock runs out or when the total value of the promotional codes already exceeds a certain financial value.
