Bargain Alerts - THE MEGATHREAD!!! - DON!! DON!!! DONNNNN!!!! *READ Mod Note in OP*

Adidas Mens' Sky Bib Shorts €24.99 +P&P here as highlighted by LightningBolt in this thread. 2% off an order with code 'FDNC'.

Garmin Edge 500 £99.97 reserve and collect only (UK) here. May be got for same price elsewhere with pricematching policy. Please keep me informed if anyone manages this


Mod Note: This thread is for bargains only. Please keep chat to a minimum, and bargain related.

SECOND MOD NOTE:
MOD VOICE: FFS, it is a bargain thread. It is also a discussion site. You can ask about the bargains, offer alternatives, point out why it is not a bargain. Try not to go off topic though. If someone starts too, report the bloody post and I will sing by and delete it, send them a PM. From now on though, anyone who posts asking "is it a bargain thread" or "I thought this was bargain alerts not random whatever thread", I won't bother my hole with a warning. Christ, how does what should be one of the most simplest threads become such a sinkhole for moderation time. Grow up, everyone.

Discount is a load of horseshíte, I've worked in places with 50% all year round. Comparing prices is the only way to know you're getting a good bargain.

Success!!!! Price matched with Evans Cycles. I had to ring them and email them with the link of 'Best Buy' on the Garmin GB site to prove that they were authorised dealers.

They gave me the same issues so I just wrote them an e-mail with everything you mentioned previously and hopefully they'll be back to me ASAP. Do they have a next day delivery option?

I don't know. I just went with their free delivery service. Should be easy enough to find out from their site.
