I've recently applied for and received my RLA "Tradepoint" card and thought I'd give it a whirl for the first time today, to buy a few fence panels.
I went online and priced them up; compared with the B&Q price of £92.48 the TradePoint price would be £92.66. Hmm.
Well at least there's an introductory offer on at the moment which apparently will give me £5 off a £50 purchase or £10 off £100, so that's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick I suppose. Except... only works for online orders and my items explicitly state "Delivery unavailable", "Unavailable for Click & Collect" and "Only available for purchase in store". Just great.
So I'm on way to Wickes as usual, having chucked my TradePoint card in the bin.
