Amazon Prime Bargains - Chat Thread

Possibly worth having a chat thread for some of the stuff posted on the bargains thread. Anyway, in relation to this:

Even at that price not worth the money. Took a chance on them around Christmas and have never worn them other than to try them on. The fabric is quite heavy for a t-shirt, but the main issue is that the fit is terrible, particularly around the shoulders. They're cheap for a reason.

I know it it says slim fit.
I take it that means you found them tight?

No, the shoulders stuck out like I was wearing 80s style shoulder pads under them. That was for regular fit btw, but I wouldn't be confident that the slim fit would be any better.

I actually have them myself from a previous order and find them grand. I'd put them at an equal par to the similarly prices t-shirts in Penneys so it's good alternative option for those who would usually buy such t-shirts but can't right now.

Maybe the slim fit ones are a bit better. It's a pity because I usually buy t-shirts quite similar to them and I thought I was on to a winner.

My loo roll arrived today and even though my default is set to Amazon packaging it was a clear big plastic bag. The delivery man looked at me funny when he handed it over!

In the AZ bargain threads when a poster says something is say 13.99 and you click the link then it comes up as say 17.99 has the price just gone up or am i missing something, as it seems to be happening even with newly posted bargains?

When you go to checkout it removes the UK VAT so the price drops

It's alright, I am well stocked.

I always think that if I lived in America I'd be one of the coupon folk with a decent stockpile. Bulk buying on Amazon is as close as we get to a bargain here.
